Resistance band exercises on a chair are a great tool to build strength or rehabilitate from injuries. Give our 20-Minute Resistance Band Workout a try.
Working out using resistance bands offers so many benefits. When you use resistance bands, you improve your balance, strengthen isolated muscle groups, prevent injuries and challenge yourself increasingly and gradually.
Working out with resistance bands provides strength training for our older people helping to build strong muscles and bones while improving their ability to carry out activities of daily living as they are getting older.
Resistance bands can be used anywhere so they are a great thing to pack in the suitcase, giving you the ability to do a very effective full body workout whether you are travelling for pleasure or for business.
Our therapists are attending a seniors health and wellness event in June 2018 and will not only be providing chair massage but will be providing seniors with guidance on how to do workouts using bands while sitting in a chair.
Seated resistance band exercises are useful:
- for the elderly to prevent, if not reverse, the decline in muscle strength as well as improve balance, posture and functional movement;
- for those in rehab, to improve range of motion and flexibility;
- if you are in the office and want to some quick exercises without leaving your chair!
