This client walks and does basic upper body exercise, plus some Qigong. Besides general lower body and core conditioning, figured I’d teach how to move from seated position in chair onto one knee (with other foot planted flat)and upper body partly supported on chair, to quadruped position,then reverse sequence to get back onto chair. Also will teach how to roll over from supine and press up to quadruped, then step one foot forward similar to above. Any other ideas?? Thanks!
I think the BOSU will be your best friend in this, as balance is very important in that whole process. I’ve also used a smith machine bar to work with modified pushups and pullups, as many seniors don’t have the strength to do them with just their bodyweight; seniors need the strength to push from the floor and pull themselves up from off of it. Good luck!
