This week we are working on our strength in our upper body and core……. Using resistance bands! 🙂
As I’ve said previously, I feel resistance bands are a great piece of equipment seniors can use to improve their strength and fitness.
Follow along to this exercise video and wrap the band around your hand to tighten the band as much as needed. If the exercise is too hard make it looser or use a band with less resistance (each colour has a different resistance).
