(leg muscles) – Stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder width
apart with your toes point out slightly. Place your hands on your hips
or out in front of you and squat down slowly and then back up. You can
go down as far as you feel comfortable. Try to look straight ahead
instead of down at the floor. This will help you keep maintain proper
form. Do 10-15 reps.
(legs, torso, and arms) – Take a big step forward with your right leg
and stand there. Bring your left arm out and down towards your right
knee. Lean forward a bit and bend the right knee slightly. This is your
starting point. Then push off your right foot as you straighten your
knee and transfer more of your weight onto your back foot.
At the same time, pull your left arm back and away from your knee,
bending the elbow so your left hand ends up by your left shoulder. Now
shift back forward to where you started and bring the hand back to the
knee area. Do 10-15 on one side and then switch so your other foot is
forward and use the other arm. After you get this figured out, you can
come over and help me mow the lawn.
Bent Arm Side
Raise (shoulder muscles) – Bend your elbows to 90 degrees
with your elbows by your sides so your hands meet in the middle.
Maintaining the 90 degree bend, raise the hands out, up, and away from
each other until your arms are horizontal to the ground. Lower slowly
back to where you started. Do 10-15 reps.
and Hold (lower leg muscles) – Stand with your feet about
6 inches apart from each other, pointing straight ahead. Hold on to
something for support and raise up onto your toes bringing the heels
off the ground. Hold at the top position for about 2 seconds before
lowering down. Do 10-15 reps.
