The exercise routine we do this week is a seated exercise session for healthy joints.
As we get older, it’s a good idea to make a conscious effort to be running our joints through their full range of motion to ensure we keep them healthy and so they don’t stiffen up.
The workout is completely seated.
(To get straight into the exercise go to 1:02 Seconds).
