Fitness WOD: Supplemental Upper Body Workout for the Geriatric Population

Welcome to our second installment for our Geriatric Population Workouts. These workouts are designed to improve mobility, flexibility, and strength. We work on functional movements that carry over into activities of daily living.

Our focus in this workout is shoulder mobility and flexibility along with upper body strength. First we isolate the shoulder girdle for mobilization and then we integrate the hip and mid back into the shoulder mobilization. After mobilizing and warming-up the shoulder, we get into an upper body resistance training circuit and conclude with some stretches for a cool down.

I hope you enjoyed and feel its effects. Stay tuned for our last workout in this series focusing on a total body routine.
