Resistance training means to exercise with some form of resistance. This can be in the form of actual weights (dumbells etc), resistance bands or everyday water bottles or cans of soup.
The type of weight doesn’t matter as long as whatever you choose to use should be comfortable for you.
You can also substitute weight just for range of motion movement meaning just moving your muscles can be resistance for some. Especially if you have any limitations due to previous surgery or injury.
You don’t have to use weights for this workout.
Here, we are working through both upper and lower body to make sure we are using all of our major muscle groups including arms, legs, back and core.
Strengthening these areas helps you with everyday movements like lifting pots or pans, walking up stairs or even just sitting and standing.
As per every exercise only do what you feel comfortable with and avoid pain or discomfort. If you decide to use weights choose only weights that you are comfortable with and never force any movement that causes discomfort.
Also, don’t forget to take lots of breaks and drink water.
Have a great workout!
