My name is Annette, and I help people with controlled chronic conditions (cleared by their GP) to exercise, and every day I see the benefits of exercise no matter your age, fitness, mobility, exercise is so important to our quality of life and independence.
This is a low intensity workout using light hand weights (cans or water bottles) for all levels of fitness and you can sit or stand to learn these functional exercises to help keep you strong. It is designed for you to work at your own pace, and as you get stronger over a period of time, you can increase your reps or sets. (I am also over 50, still compete in Masters Events, and know we also want to look the best we can be). Enjoy!
Warmup seated or standing
Sit to Stands or seated Leg Press
Seated Leg Extension
Shoulder External Rotation – back
Lunges or Seated Leg Curls
Tricep Kick backs
We do these exercises 1 set x 8 – 12 reps but you can repeat these exercises 2 to 3 times as you get fitter.
