Age Well Fitness with Carla Brown

Heather: JUST BECAUSE WE'RE STUCK INSIDE DOES NOT MEAN WE CAN'T GET OUR WORKOUT ON I'M HERE NOW WITH CARLA BROWN, WHO IS A FITNESS INSTRUCTOR FOR AGE SPECIFIC, IS THAT WHAT WE CALL IT? YES

Heather: WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Guest: THE NAME OF MY CLASS I TEACH AT MAHOMET REC IS AGE WELL IT'S FOR WOMEN 45 TO ON UP UNTIL THEY FEEL LIKE I JUST CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE AND SO I PICK OUT MOVES THAT ARE FOR FUNCTION AND THAT ALSO FOR PREVENTION SO I'M THINKING ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO ALL OF YOUR LIFE

WHICH WOULD BE WALKING, STANDING, SITTING, CARRYING THINGS, NOT FALLING, HAVING GOOD BALANCE SO JUST I JUST SEE THAT SO MUCH YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOOK AT, YOU KNOW, THE NEXT GENERATION UP FROM ME, AT LEAST I DO, MY PARENTS AND WHAT THEY'RE ABLE TO DO, SO WANTING TO PROMOTE THAT ALSO, TO AVOID ILLNESS AND INJURY BONE DENSITY, KEEPING, MAINTAINING MUSCLE

PREVENTING DIABETES, HEART DISEASE THERE'S SO MANY THINGS THAT YOU BENEFIT FROM EXERCISE Heather: YEAH AND YOU CAN DO IT AT ANY AGE Guest: YEAH, YEAH

Heather: AND YOU CAN DO IT AT ANY LOCATION IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE HERE IN MAHOMET AT THE REC CENTER LIKE WE ARE THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF THINGS YOU CAN DO AT HOME Guest: YES CURRENTLY, I HAVE A SPACE AT HOME THAT THAT'S WHY I'M WORKING OUT

IT'S LIKE A BIG AREA YOU CAN Heather: MAKE IT WORK

YES, MAKE IT WORK GET A COUPLE OF WEIGHTS AT WALMART OR TARGET AMAZON DELIVERED MINE Heather: THERE YOU GO LET'S TRY MOVES THAT YOU DO IN YOUR CLASS

Guest: OKAY FIRST UP, I'M GOING TO GRAB WEIGHTS IF YOU DO THESE WITH WEIGHTS, IT INCREASES HEART RATE AND MUSCLE BENEFIT THE FIRST IS A BASIC SQUAT DOWN AND UP

YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR KNEES DON'T PROJECT OVER YOUR TOES YOU'RE LEADING WITH YOUR BOOTY YOU DON'T LEAD WITH YOUR KNEES YOU LEAD WITH YOUR BOOTY AND DROP BACK

BACK AND FORTH UP AND DOWN THAT'S THE BASIC SQUAT WHY THAT IS SO BENEFICIAL IS, THIS IS YOUR FOUNDATION YOU WANT TO KEEP THAT STRONG ALL OF YOUR LIFE

ALSO, IT'S INCORPORATING THE HIPS A LOT OF INJURIES HAPPEN WITH THE HIPS WHEN PEOPLE FALL IN THE WEAK AREA THERE SO YOU'RE INCREASING THE MOBILITY THERE AND MAINTAINING THAT Heather: YOU GOT A CHAIR HERE, NOT JUST FOR PROPS TO HOLD YOUR WEIGHT THAT IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR CLASSES

Guest: IT IS IF SOMEONE COMES IN AND THEY'RE NOT USED TO THIS MOTION, THEY CAN PUT THEIR HAND THERE AND USE IT FOR STABILITY JUST THAT ONE HAND HELPS PARTICULARLY WHEN WE GO INTO THE NEXT LOWER BODY MOVE WHICH IS A REVERSE LUNG, UP AND DOWN LIKE THIS YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR BODY IS PERPENDICULAR, NICE AND STRAIGHT

YOU'RE DROPPING THE KNEE DOWN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN LOTS OF WOMEN TURN LIKE THIS IF THEY DON'T HAVE THIS LITTLE PROP FOR STABILITY Heather: YES Guest: YOU DO REVERSE LUNG BECAUSE IT SIMULATES WHAT WE DO WITH OUR LEGS WHEN WE'RE STEPPING FORWARD, WALKING, BENDING OUR KNEES I LIKE IT BACKWARDS, BECAUSE THE BALANCE ASPECT COMES INTO PLAY THERE

Heather: YEAH, THESE WERE ALL EXAMPLES OF LOWER BODY EXERCISES WHAT ABOUT UPPER BODY? Guest: BASIC ONES, WE WANT TO TO TO DO BICEP CURLS, HAMMER CURLS, UP AND DOWN GO OUT COMBINE THE TWO THERE'S SO MUCH YOU COULD DO

THAT IS FOR CARRYING THINGS, LIFTING UP GRANDCHILDREN WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PROCEEDS WITH US ALL OF OUR LIVES THE NEXT MOVE, I THINK I'M GOING TO AN UPWARDS ROW A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR SHOULDERS AND I HAVE A LOT OF WOMEN IN MY CLASS WHO HAVE HAD SHOULDER INJURIES, SHOULDER SURGERIES

THE ONE I FIND THEY CAN DO IS UPWARDS ROW SO YOU BRING IT UP AND DOWN UP AND DOWN UP AND DOWN Heather: AND HOW MANY REPS AND ROUNDS OF EXERCISES SHOULD PEOPLE DO AT HOME? Guest: I WOULD SAY 8-12 PER ROUND

AT LEAST THREE ROUNDS WOULD BE GOOD BUT IT KIND OF GOES ON Heather: HOW THEY'RE FEELING

Guest: YEAH Heather: AND LISTEN TO YOUR BODY PUSH IT A LITTLE BIT BUT NOT TOO MUCH Guest: YES Heather: OBVIOUSLY CLASSES ARE CLOSED NOW AT THE MAHOMET REC CENTER

BUT ALWAYS SOMETHING FUN YOU COULD DO AT HOME Guest: YES Heather: WE APPRECIATE YOU HAVING US OUT HERE! Guest: SURE Heather: YOU CAN AGE WELL, AND CARLA HAS ALL THE TIPS
