Hi, I'm Jay McLeod. Today, we're going to discuss the best exercises for someone close to 50. OK. Really you want to do something called functional training which mimics real life situations. OK. Your body is moving at once. Instead of breaking down each individual muscle your body, your legs, your upper body all working together. OK the first functional exercise I'm going to show you is a full body exercise OK. It's going to be resistance band squat and rolls, OK. So it's going to work the muscles in your legs, also it's going to work your back muscles OK. So we're here, you grab your resistance band. This is probably the lightest resistance band. You can go heavier if you choose to OK it depends on your strength level. From here I'm going to grip the handles. I'm going to talk my body bad, I'm going to really get some distance from me and the band, OK. So from here arms fully extended, I'm going to drop in to that squat, push my hips back, bend my knees really sink low in the squat. OK as I come up out the squat by driving my heels driving through my heels and thrusting my hips forward I'm going to roll at the top of the motion. Once again full body workout. I inhale coming down, exhale. Really squeezing my shoulder blades together when I pull this resistance band in to my stomach, my chest. OK the next exercise I'm going to show you is the resistance band lunge and press, OK. This is a full body, functional exercise, so it's going to work our legs, also going to work our core and our shoulders, OK. Now from here what I'm going to do with my resistance band I'm going to loop it under my foot and I'm going to kick my opposite leg back OK. My back leg, my heel stays up during the lunge, OK. From here I'm going to bring the band behind my elbows, my hands are right outside my shoulders, my elbows are flared out. OK I'm going to bend my back knee to drop in to that lunge, lower my body to the floor until my knee is about an inch from the floor. Now from here I'm going to drive through my legs and I'm going to stand up, I'm going to press the resistance band over my head, OK still without my hands hitting OK and I'm going to inhale, draw my hands right back to the site of my shoulders and we're going to repeat the exercise.
