I understand the guidelines to assist with her maintaining cardio health. There is no osteoperosis ( amazingly), but I am looking for some creative suggestions for safe strengthening. ( she is also intimidated by the Gym environment, so I plan to take her outside when the weather is cooperative, before heavy pollen hits the air.. Thank you for any ideas!
Hey there Laura,
I’d agree with Laura and perhaps encourage an indoor space experience since it is a more controlled environment. For strength I’d also stick to using bands for more eccentric motion which will also encourage more breath control and awareness of breath muscles too. Certainly trees are a great band “anchor” outside. Park benches are good for this too, as well as squats. Be sure there is a place to rest.
Though you haven’t stated age of this mature client,regardless, I wouldn’t train outside with a new client that had health issues until I knew more about their endurance and strength first.
