Product Description

Moving Well for Seniors – Regaining Ability to Move Well – How Seniors Can Move Better

In this lecture, Tom Furman discusses healthy aging from toddler to senior years: What will it take to maintain your easy movement ability? Which movements should be given priority, and how much time per week do they need to age gracefully? Whether for yourself or your clients, these important movements can make life-long changes if given a few minutes each day.

“Even with a pullup, it’s a power-to-weight ratio thing. The stronger your arms and upper back muscles are and the leaner or lighter you are, the easier it is to do pulling. If you can’t do a pullup or a chinup, you’re either too heavy or too weak.

“When we run, we’re moving across gravity. However, we’re moving our body a single leg at a time, so we’re also moving against resistance. We can get very efficient when we move across gravity.” ~Tom Furman

  1. :

    In this lecture, Tom lays out a template for developing and maintaining strong movement skills throughout life. It seems everywhere we look, there are complex fitness and movement programs with rigid structures that require a sometimes difficult adherence to reap the benefits. Tom goes the exact opposite direction. He lays out what movement patterns are essential and how to develop and maintain those patterns in the context of health, overall fitness, and life. He gives good flexible programming suggestions for how to cultivate these moves in the context of your goals and how to manipulate the programming as you progress or as times change. Really, the key to this lecture is the simplicity of the programming and flexibility in your options so that everyone can benefit and progress. This is the perfect thing to give to someone who wants to move better and get into shape because it is easy to understand and can be adhered to without problems. You don’t really need to dive any deeper than what’s in this lecture to have a healthy life of good movement.
