As we get older it is important to maintain muscle to keep our bodies strong. However, a lot of us suffer from joint pain and injuries and it is difficult for us to workout at the same level we were able to when we were younger.
Below are 3 exercises using dumbbells that don’t require you to get on the floor, aren’t bad for bad backs and sore knees, and can help maintain your muscle mass.
Stand with a dumbbell in each hand, turn your palms away from your legs, and one at a time, bring the dubbed to the front of your shoulder and back down again to where you began. Try this for 6 sets of 10 repetitions.
Stand with a dumbbell in each hand, bring the dumbbells up to your shoulder for the resting position, palms facing each other, and press the dumbbells overhead and back down to the resting position again. Try this for 3 sets of 8 repetitions.
Grab two light dumbbells and hold them up by your shoulders for the resting position. Make sure your feet are a shoulder width apart with your toes pointed forward, they should be flat on the ground. Squat down making sure your knees never go over your toes. Try 5 sets of 3 repetitions.
This is easy and works your body in all the right ways without hurting you!
