Exercises for Weight Control

Stretching (weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing)

Stretching helps:

  • make you more flexible (to help keep you from getting hurt)
  • make you feel relaxed
  • improve your blood flow
  • keep your muscles from getting tight after doing other exercises.

You don’t have to set aside a special time or place to stretch. At home or at work, stand up, push your arms toward the ceiling, and stretch. Stretch slowly and only enough to feel tightness—not until you feel pain. Hold the stretch, without bouncing, for about 30 seconds. Don’t stretch cold muscles

Yoga and tai chi are types of stretching. They help you breath deeply, relax, and get rid of stress.

Your local fitness center may offer yoga, tai chi, or other stretching classes. You may want to start with “gentle” classes, like those aimed at seniors.
