Easy Diabetic Exercise


In case you have almost zero exercise hours and you want to start with easy diabetic exercise then I suggest the bending and the stretching exercises.

  • They are the easiest.
  • There is no injury risk.
  • They don't take much time

These easy diabetic exercise workouts also could be warm-up exercises that prepare your muscles for more intense activity and help prevent injury. The arm, chest, and shoulder exercises emphasize biceps and triceps, among other muscle groups. The abdominal exercises strengthen the core muscles of the body, trimming your waist and improving posture. Leg exercises strengthen the muscles that allow you to run, jump, and climb stairs. These include the thighs, hip flexors, and quadriceps.
I divided the easy diabetic exercise to 3 groops: Standing, sitting and lying exercises.

Standing exercises:

  • Stand with your legs apart. Bend backward, then forward, and after that bend to each side.
  • Stand up with feet together, rise up onto your tip-toes (until you feel a little pinch in your calves) and lower yourself back down. To improve your posture simultaneously, try to balance a book on your head.
  • Stand with your feet just a little more than shoulder-width apart. With arms by your side, hold a bottle of water or milk in each hand. Squeeze your bum muscles and squat down until thighs are parallel to the floor, and then extend knees and hips until you're standing upright again. Your knees should point the same way as your feet during the squat.


Sitting exercises:
  • Sit on a chair. Push down the seat of the chair with your arms and try to lift your body off the seat.
  • Stretch your arms to your sides. Make with your arms a clockwise rotation, and then do it in the opposite direction.
  • Raise your arm forward. Make a big circle with your right arm, then with your left arm. Now, do it again but in the opposite direction.


Lying exercises:
    Lie down on your bed or on carpet at your home.
  • When you're lying, try to lift your head and shoulders.
  • Raise your arms over your head. Now, roll from side to side slowly.
  • Take your left knee and lift it close to your chest. Now, lower it slowly, and then do it with your right knee.
  • Lie on the floor on your stomach, with legs together behind you and arms together in front of you. Slowly raise them off the ground and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat three times.
  • Lie down on your side. Raise your leg and make a circle with it. Now lie down on the other side and do it again with your other leg.
