Senior Physical Fitness at Home : Shoulder Strengthening Lateral Exercises for Seniors

Hi this is Manny Castro, Exercise Physiologist.
In this clip I will demonstrate a strengthening exercise for the shoulder. For this particular
exercise all you will need is once again as in the previous exercise a chair with a back
on it, just a regular household chair and you will also need either dumbbells, very
light dumbbells and these particular dumbbells are 3 pounds each or you can also use half
gallon jugs of milk, empty jugs which you will fill with water to adjust for your resistance.
Now what you want to do is sit all the way back in your chair with your back nice and
straight, your abdominals tight, once again feet are flat on the floor feet are about
shoulder width apart, let your arms come down to your side and using a slow count of 3 you’ll
come straight up to about parallel to the floor and then hold it for one second and
come back down with a nice slow count of 3 again. Once again you’ll complete 8 to 10
repetitions of these and after you complete the first set, you will rest 2 to 3 minutes
and complete another set.
