STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY: A SENIOR’S GUIDE TO RECLAIMING YOUR YOUTH
Fort Lee Public Library
Thursday, Dec. 3, 2pm
No matter one’s age, strength and flexibility are necessary attributes to navigate our world with agility and confidence. As seniors, it is even more imperative that, to counter the body’s natural atrophy, we exercise our muscular system including upper torso, legs and core. A strong body translates into better balance, walking and dayto-day functioning. In this seminar, led by Richard Portugal, you will learn chair and standing exercises to build strength utilizing a large lightweight ball, a resistance band, a small ball and muscle-to-muscle implementation. Attention will be focused upon chest, shoulders, back, stomach, legs, hands and feet. The exercises will encompass strength, reflexes and speed. All these muscle groups require stimulation to ensure vigor, agility and proper functionality. Come and get strong. Excite your muscles and make yourself younger!
For this session you will need: Light weights 2-3 lbs, an 18 inch ball, a tennis ball or other small ball and a light resistance band. Registration required.
