Your legs might be the most vital and yet under appreciated part of your body, at least when it comes to overall health and fitness. I fully understand that due to aging and various injuries, not everyone can hop under a barbell and max out on squats. But I also realize everyone can make improvements. Here is a simple beginner routine to get you started.
Squats: Start by simply standing up and sitting down into a chair ten times, if you can do that add weight.
Reverse Lunges: Start standing tall, step backwards, and bend your knee to touch the ground, step forward, switch legs and repeat.
Step Ups: Put one foot on a step, and step up with the other foot.
While these are basics, they will get you started.
