Fitness Routines to Help Manage your Diabetes

Can’t get outdoors as winter approaches? Physical activity indoors is a good way to help manage your diabetes.

The following are some fitness routines you can do in your own home from Jacqueline Shahar, certified diabetes educator and manager of exercise physiology in the Joslin Clinic:

Fitness Routines to Preserve Bone Health

Doing things as simple as getting up from a chair and sitting back down or stepping up on a stair or flight of stairs builds up bones, strengthens the muscles around the bones, and improves balance.

Resistance Band Routines

Resistance training helps promote weight loss by strengthening muscles and increasing muscle mass. You can do easy fitness routines with a resistance band without leaving your home.
