Changing the future of seniors from frail to STRONG / Improving health one day at a time / Day 7

20  comments

I started this series because I want to help with changing the future for seniors, from frail seniors to strong seniors. All it takes is consistency and a little bit of work each day. Each workout will be no more than 15 minutes of strength exercises a day. Together we will be improving your health one day at a time. Are you ready to make a change?

Welcome to day 7! Today we will be focusing on upper body strength. This quick, effective and manageable strength training workout is great for seniors and beginners who want to see an improvement in strength while exercising at home. Whether you are 20 or 70, this strength training program can help you to become a stronger you in a short period of time. We will work out 5 days a week, have two days off and will come back the next week with new exercises to keep you motivated. This program is suitable for seniors who are used to exercising, and beginners new to strength training. Ensure you warm up first and check in with your doctor to make sure you can start a strength training program.

  • I was in the middle of doing your old standing abs workout when up pops today’s goodie! I did not think I could manage the press-ups, but I did it. Thanks once again, Jules 😊

  • Hi Jules! So glad to see this. I hope to begin from the first of the series. This is great. I want to be a strong senior! I’m 61 now. I moved to volunteer outside of the metropolis. And I walk to work (in my rubber shoes and backpack) and back, 40 mins total, 1.4kms, 4400 steps total/day. I need to shed off kilos. I will be exploring this new series of yours. Thanks so much for motivating and inspiring me to transform my life!

    • I’m so glad to read that you plan to start this series. The added strength will increase your metabolism over time which is definitely a bonus of strength training, while getting strong and toned. Let me know how it goes!

  • There is a strength in calmness and a calmness in strength…Jules you are yoga in motion.
    The work is strong💪🔥💪 but the calmness in your voice doesn’t change. Love love love that 🤗
    Thank you for the transitions to the ground exercises. (The 15 minutes of work goes by quickly)
    Have a fantastic day ahead and will be starting my morning wog with you soon. ❤️

  • Hullo, Jules,
    If i had a magic wand, I’d wave it around and get this entire series to go viral!! I know how much I benefit by working out with you daily…there may be scores of others in need of a calm, empathetic, encouraging, intelligent, sweet coach aka Jules!!
    Coming to today’s segment… a mixture of trepidation and excitement about the push-ups…I recorded my effort, realised I was about 4 inches higher than I should be at the lowest position…so effectively, i’d moved down only a couple of inches. But, my form was correct, no humps, so …some progress…shall persevere and will get there.
    Thank you for everything you do🙏💖
    Blessings and best wishes, always.

    • Thanks so much, Anuradha. 4 inches higher is TOTALLY okay. We are just starting out so the fact that you tried them, and succeeded, is amazing. There is no need to get your nose to the floor. Go to the depth that feels right for you:) Thanks so much for your very meaningful comment. 🥰

  • In 7 short workouts, I have been able to move on to doing floor planks…yea!! I’m amazed how much stronger I feel in just a week….who knew??? Thank you Jules for keeping me inspired!

    • Oh my gosh, your comment is super meaningful to me. Thank you SO much for sharing your progress. This is exactly what I want people to realize…it doesn’t take a lot of time to get stronger, and there are endless benefits from added strength. Thank you, Mary!😊

  • Day 7 ✅
    Increased weights a little. Still slowly improving my shoulder impingement. I was able to last to count of 30 on the plank. I choose to do the wall push ups.
    Nice workout and I feel it. Thank

    • Congrats on the 30 seconds! I think it’s wise to do the wall push-ups due to your shoulder. Please check in with your PT about exercises to avoid.

  • Another great workout 👍. I’m feeling stronger, 💪😂. Using 5 pound weights on the floor. My next size up is an 8! Yikes, need to find something in between. Increases my plank time to 20 seconds today. And you made me try the one I hate, the dreaded push up. Well, I did 10 teeny ones with my butt sticking up more than it should, but it’s a start. I’m looking forward to these workouts every day now. Thanks again for doing them for us.

    • I LOVE that you tried the push-up and LOVE that you are looking forward to the workouts each day. I am super excited to help you and others to get stronger. As for the weight, I think you will be pleasantly surprised that you can likely use the 8 lb. It’s not really necessary to purchase a weight between the 5 to 8. My suggestion is to start with the 8 lb (on exercises where the 5 lb is a bit too light), do as many as you can with the 8 lb, then switch to the 5 lb weight when you feel the 8 is too much. This way you’ll get more results. Let me know how that goes.
