1. Dumbbell or Barbell Deadlifts
Deadlifting is a dynamic exercise known as one of the best exercises for strengthening the lower body.
However, what is often overlooked is that this effective leg exercise requires a good balance to perform it correctly and safely.
For many seniors, balance is an area they struggle with as they age. If heavyweights such as dumbbells and dumbbells are also used, it can be even more dangerous.
When deadlifting, you need to bend in the hips and insert your lower back, gluteal muscles, trunk, and center of the body to pull the weight up from the floor.
If you do not have sufficient balance and strong core muscles, you can easily compensate for this with the back muscles and thus strain your back.
Instead, practice this movement only with your body weight to improve balance and train the target muscles.
You can also train the same muscle groups with safer exercises such as squats with your own body weight.
