Workout for leg strength and hip mobility 19 June 2021

Led by Mira, this is a whole body seated workout for leg strength and hip mobility.

The 28-minute session starts with a warm up for better overall mobility. At the heart of today’s session is an interval body-weight strength workout. This is designed for stronger leg and hip mobility to benefit your stability and strength. As a result, you will improve both your balance and confidence while also preventing injuries. The session ends with a gentle stretching routine.

We’d love to have your comments on this workout for leg strength and hip mobility. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Fit For Good YouTube Channel! If you’ve enjoyed this session, please do consider donating to Fit For Good to help us continue to provide FREE sessions.

What is Fit For Good?

Research supports the fact that regular exercise is vital to good health and helps control the ageing process. Fit For Good sessions are specifically designed to help men and women over 60 take more control over how they age, and enjoy becoming more mobile, stable and socially active.

Although we all understand that exercise is essential for living well into old age, it’s hard to find a way to make it part of daily life. Fit For Good sessions aim to help you enjoy healthier, happier ageing. Our professional trainers guide you. During each workout, you gain strength, balance, flexibility and stamina. You work at your own pace and your own ability – although it’s always good to push yourself just slightly to gain maximum benefit.

    Keep up the good work Jordan and Mira. I love doing both of your sessions and find them really beneficial.
    I particularly enjoyed recently your Funky movements session Jordan, and your Leg strength and hip mobility one Mira.

    Audrey’s good friend (she’s well chuffed you mentioned her scarf tip!)

Fit For Good online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.

To make the most of each session:

  • Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
  • Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
  • Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
  • Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
  • Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
  • Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
  • Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
  • Play background music if it helps you relax
