Broadcast 10: Side stretch

The tenth of our short routines to get you stretching and moving - specifically designed for older people. (Content from Demos and Sport England.)

10 Today is a set of fun 10-minute, audio and video workouts intended to easily fit into your day to help get you stretching and moving at home. It has been designed by and for older people to keep you physically active, boost your wellbeing, and help maintain your mobility and balance, during what we recognise may be an incredibly difficult and lonely time for many. Each routine provides engaging and easy to follow routines that are a great way of staying active within your own home. They can be done at any time, whether standing up or sitting down, and are adaptable to different fitness levels. Most people can get active without medical advice. However, if you do have difficulty managing the symptoms of your condition, seeking medical advice before increasing your activity levels may be helpful. Often, further condition-related information can be found on charity websites. Remember to check government advice if you think you have any symptoms linked to coronavirus.
