Resistance exercise workout - session 1: Stretching

Over the next few months, Diabetes Queensland accredited exercise physiologist and dietitian Kathryn Kirchner will take you through her resistance training guide.

While cardio (exercise that raises the heart rate like running) has its place as part of your regular exercise routine, it is best performed in tandem with resistance exercise (exercise that increases muscle strength and endurance).  This month we start with the all-important stretching exercises.  Stretches should be held for 20 seconds per side and repeated twice for maximum effectiveness.

Keep an eye out for October, November and December's issues that will include glutes, quads and hamstrings, back, core and chest and shoulders and triceps workout sessions.

 

As always it's important to check with your GP before starting any new exercise routines.
