Strengthen Core and Keep Aligned to Help with Gardening and Yard Work

The whole idea of this is to strengthen up your core and help keep your spine in alignment.

Most of the reps are 3 to 5.  The goal isn’t to get a great workout but to feel good and loosen up.

Chest and Back exercises using Door Jambs and Broom Handle

Only do the position that you feel you can handle.  Make sure your surrounding area is safe.  Have cushioning under your knees when doing the push-up exercises and behind you when doing the back exercises.

Reps can be between 5 and 20 (a rep is one complete movement)

Sets can be 1 to 3 (a set is a number of reps)

Progression can be a change in body position and the number of sets and reps.

Make sure you’re breathing!

 

Usually there’s at least three people involved so I’m still working on lighting, etc.
