Regular physical activities are medicine for seniors and older population. We have studies in which it was found that regular physical activities reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and metabolic diseases through better control of blood pressure and cholesterol.

Regular exercise also helps to improve cognitive functions which help to maintain balance and reduces the risk of falls. In addition to that regular workouts also helps to improve bone mineral density. I would suggest doing these workouts under the supervision of a person. You can keep sets 3 and reps 8 to 12 per workout. For weights, if you don't have dumbells you can use filled water bottles. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4889622/#!po=0.423729 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24531424
