Senior Exercises : Chest Press

This is the second in a series of exercises for seniors. A couple weeks ago, we offered a video on an Overhead Press. If you are taking care of an arm or shoulder injury, or just starting on your fitness journey, don’t let the name “Senior Exercises” fool you. Watch the video and learn. Sometimes it’s important to be gentle with your body, know that and respect that. It’s ok.

This video shows the instructor using a soft weighted toning ball during the exercise.  As she informs us, you could also use an inflated ball if so desired (check out our 7″ mini-exercise ball and our 9″ mini-exercise ball).  Perhaps this is because you don’t want the added weight, but the inflated ball still offers resistance and will help you be mindful of your movements.  Sometimes we choose our exercise tool because of what we already have lying around the house!  And that’s fine, too.
