Are you considering building strength and improve mobility even as you age? Have you purchased a resistance band as a beginner? If the box is tick with a YES, this guide is for you! Aging shouldn't stop you from getting fit but a need for extra care during workouts. No matter how old you may be, there is still an exercise you can do at home comfortably! According to the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association, seniors above 65 should try to exercise at least 150 minutes or 2 hours 30 minutes per week, and should also include strength training at least twice a week. Sadly, most persons above the age of 65 do not workout at all and this singular decision denies them the benefits. You probably skip strength training even though you work out regularly, and go straight to walking or some form of cardio. A mix of both aerobic workouts and endurance, flexibility, and strength training is the perfect type of exercise for seniors and anyone else. Resistance band exercises are the most effective workouts that elderly persons and beginners can incorporate into their daily weekly program. With this exercise, you will develop strength with a few basic workouts, improving endurance, and significantly help combat persistent aches, fight bone loss, pains, even diseases such as arthritis. These sets of workouts are the perfect alternatives to weights or even a great complement to a standard weight lifting regimen. They are cheap, lightweight, and work the muscles in a totally different way than weights. In reality, studies show that with resistance bands, muscles adapt to strength exercise as well as other forms of equipment, such as free weights and various equipment. However, resistance band workout has a lot to offer. This book has all you need to know and get you started with an illustrated sets & reps for the best practice indoors or outdoors.
