No equipment exercise program for the 50+ - 7/10

Week Seven of a Ten Week series:  Arm Strength and Toning

Vintage Fitness is an in home personal training company which inspires movement in the 50+ in Toronto. 

Clients often ask us for easy exercises which are appropriate for someone over 50 that require minimal equipment which they can do at home or in their condo gym.

This is the seventh week of a ten week blog series filled with exercise pictures and tips.  The focus this week is on arm strength and toning.   Many of our at home personal training clients are concerned with what they describe as flabby arms as they have gotten older.  These exercises will help to develop strength for lifting and carrying as well as tone your arms.

Bicep Curl

A good exercise to strengthen the muscles on the front of the arm (biceps).  You can use cans or a water bottle if you don’t have hand weights.

Do this exercise 10 times on either side.


Tricep Kick Back

Tricep Kick Back

Keep your back straight as you bend your body forward.  You should feel it at the back of the arm. 

Do this exercise 10 times.


Grip Strength

Grip Strength

Working on grip strength will make opening bottles and using kitchen tools such as the can opener much easier.  Any soft ball would work here.

This exercise will tone and strengthen the back of your arms as well as stretching your shoulders.

Do this exercise 10 times.
