As the body ages, it’s important to rethink and refresh your fitness routine to adapt to changing goals, whether you’ve been doing a routine for years or are just starting a new one. Bellevue Club personal trainers Jerry Flynn and Mary Worley crafted a workshop for those who want to learn and practice fundamental, functional movements that will give you the confidence to do everything from picking up your grandkids to safely executing more challenging strength-based exercises. Attendees will explore movements that improve posture, balance and gait from the ground up. In this interactive workshop, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, practice drills and get feedback from experts. On the following page we offer an example of the type of exercises to expect.
Wall Hip Hinge
Start by standing six inches from a wall with your feet hip width apart. Place your hands on your hip creases (not at your waist), where the glute muscles connect to your hamstrings. Driving through the heels, hinge at your hips until your backside touches the wall. Be sure to keep a straight spine throughout the entire action. Stand up straight, and then repeat 10 to 12 times.
Benefits: This action helps with balance in situations where sitting down and standing up are required. It also aids with safely progressing to more advanced movements, such as squats.
