Resistance Band and Balance Workouts
My elderly Dad started working not too long ago with a physical therapist using resistance bands for balance issues. Not only is his balance much better, but he found this type of exercise very doable for him. He wanted to continue on his own after the therapy sessions ended, so this was a perfect gift for him. Resistance bands are one of the safest and least intimidating ways for older adults to start a strength training and flexibility program. They are safe and fun, and the intensity of the exercise can easily be increased or decreased since it’s all about the thickness of the band you choose and where you hold it for a given exercise. This DVD set might not be an obvious choice for a gift for your favorite 80 year old guy, but we recommend you try it. You might be surprised!
