Thursdays in 2013
Coming Thursdays in 2013.....Exercises and workouts for the rest of us.
We will begin by doing one move a week for the first two workout routines. From there we will focus on areas of the body, flexibility, building bone, building muscle, etc.
These workouts aren't really meant for someone who is already in shape, although you could use these moves to shake up your current routine. These workouts are meant for people who are not in shape at all, want to start a program, want to build up their program, people who are older, or people like me who need to exercise, but can't do too much all at once due to medical issues such as arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and the like.
For most of our routines you will just be using your own body. Sometimes you will need a stability ball, a set of light dumbbells, a chair, and a mat if you like. Also, a resistance band you are comfortable with and a small ball with a little give like those playground kind of balls that you can get at Target or Wal-Mart for around $2. There will be a walking series that could be done on a treadmill if you can't get outside.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, and although I have seen a lot of physical therapy and have been prescribed many different types of exercises, do not use any information in this series without first consulting with your doctor or therapist, especially if you have medical issues. Also, if you begin an exercise and it hurts more than just muscle stretching stop immediately. Franny is not responsible for any injuries you incur trying these workouts.
That being said, I hope you will join us Thursdays in 2013 for this exciting new series. I am really looking forward to it myself as a tool to keep me going!
Until Next Time.....
