Training a Senior Client.

Training a Senior Client.

This client is in her 80’s. I am having her sit on the Swiss Ball and bring her elbow to her knee while holding a 5 pound weight. She also activates her core while doing this exercise. We did 3 sets of 10 each side. I am helping her stay on the ball due to the fact that she would not be able to do this exercise on the ball alone. It is a forced repetition ( an advanced technique where the body is forced to do more that it can alone) exercise for balance and core. I am hoping to improve her balance before her summer travels.
