The American College of Sports Medicine guidelines recommend resistance exercises to enhance physical health, fitness and function in adults. Pete will describe strategies to modify guidelines and meet challenges of busy, sedentary adults. Development of chronic diseases, their risks and increased sedentary time can cause physical de-conditioning, functional impairments and reduced safety during workouts. Attendees will practice exercises and drills to prevent training related injuries, enhance physical function and develop competencies necessary for safe, lifelong, progressive resistance training.
