Otago Exercise Programme Exercise Booklet for Beginners

All exercises have adaptations to allow for different ranges of movement and mobility and you are encouraged to start with the minimum amount of repetitions and longer rest periods and then build up. It is advised to not work out for longer than 30 minutes (unless you usually do more) and monitor how you feel throughout the programme.  Rest whenever you need to and drink water before, during and after the session.  Please continue to follow any exercise advice you may have recently be given by a Health Professional (e.g., Physio) and check with them first before doing something different.
