Resistance Training – Body Weight

General instructions

  • Always complete a warmup and a cool down before and after resistance training.
  • For the exercises in the video that require weight, you can use items around your house if you do not have dumbbells or a band. Use a weight that you are able to complete 8 to 10 repetitions of the exercise using correct form and would rate the exercise as “hard” or as a 15 on the RPE scale.
  • Complete 8 to 10 repetitions of one exercise from each muscle group (legs, chest/shoulders, arms, and core). Repeat 1 to 2 times.
  • Remember to breathe normally as you perform these exercises.
  • Do not perform any exercise that causes you pain or discomfort. Speak to your exercise therapist for another option. Speak to your exercise therapist before performing any advanced exercise
