Strength Training is important for all of us!
We will be doing our beloved PWR! Moves today but with the emphasis on how to focus on the strength aspect. PWR! Moves are great because they can improve our flexibility, balance, cardiovascular endurance, coordination and strength to name a few. But do you know what to focus on in each move to highlight the strength component? Today we will be doing just that. We will go through what muscles to squeeze and what to focus on. Be sure to have a sturdy chair for our seated exercises.
To be as Parkinson's specific as possible, we want to focus more on functional strengthening than on general weights or machines.
We also want to focus more on strengthening the extensor muscles, than the flexors! We also want to incorporate posture, balance and all the good stuff into all the forms of exercise we do. Instead of you trying to figure all of this out, we designed a class just for you!
Remember, safety first! Modify activities as needed! Use support for anything in standing as needed, use the chair to get up and down from the ground, take your time and skip or modify activities if you need it!
