I’d suggest a lot of core stabilization & strengthening. To help with the lordosis, try foam rolling or stretching overactive muscles (such as hip flexors/lats), and strengthening underactive muscles (glutes, abdominals). Some examples of strengthening exercises: hip bridges, planks, squats (in front of a chair in case she loses her balance). Also, adding resistance/weight training would be very beneficial as sarcopenia can set in with that population. Adding balance training to the mix would also benefit her (for example, performing bicep curls while standing on one leg).
Hello Noreen Hensel,
I would work on her skills to get off the floor. My clients are so much more confident and less fearful of falling when they rise off the floor quicker after some lessons and training.
I hope she remains strong and healthy with a balanced program of strength, flexibility and cardio. Kathryn Richards gets you started.
