We use our shoulders and upper arm extensively, we need to look after them.
Working all your major muscles keeps you healthy, strong and less likely to suffer injury. It is important to maintain (or restore) strength in your entire upper arm so that you can continue to do tasks such as lifting and raising. For women, especially, sagging upper arms are not a look we would choose and the best way to limit it is to make sure we exercise our arms.
Our shoulders joints are the most movable joints in the body. Think about what you currently do, or about hobbies you may have done in the past that required a great deal of mobility: Sports, such as swimming, tennis, golf; Housekeeping, such as hanging out the washing or house painting; Communicating, such as pointing, and other directional activities.
If we have good good shoulder mobility now, we need to retain it through movement and exercise that work the shoulder joint safely. If you have limited shoulder mobility you still need to move and exercise your shoulders, with care and by not over-extending.
Most shoulder pain occurs around the joints and the incidence of shoulder pain increases with age.
Ageless Grace® has an exercise tool that allows you to exercise your upper arms and shoulders within your own pain-free parameters. In a class, we are mindful that you should not work outside your own safe limits. By working in a playful way on tasks that you already know, while seated in a chair, you can retain or regain mobility, strength and agility in the entire upper arm.
