Strength and Balance Training Session for Adults According to the American Heart Association guidelines adults are supposed to get at least 150 minutes (2 hours & 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (i.e., brisk walking) every week or 75 minutes ( 1 hour and 15 minutes) of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity (i.e. jogging or running) and 2 or more days of muscle-strengthening a week that works all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms). This may sound overwhelming to someone who barely gets off the couch or even out of their work desk chair. One may break these times down to 10 minutes 3 times a day and achieve 30 minutes by the end of the day and still reap the same benefits as doing it for a continuous 30 minutes at a time. This 30-minute session will include body weight exercises, bands, and light weights to help improve your strength, flexibility, and balance. Balance training is the key to this class as we get older, we need to incorporate those 2 days a week as well. All sessions are offered virtually via Zoom so that you may work out in the comfort of your own home and use your own equipment. Equipment you will need for the class but is not required as you may use your own body weight to gain the benefits are listed below. Resistance Bands with handles Loop Exercise Bands 3lb weights 5lb weights 8lbs (optional) 2 Yoga blocks Yoga mat/exercise mat Sturdy tennis shoes or you may choose to work out barefoot to improve your balance (Practicing barefoot increases strength and balance)
