PT Activity of the Week: Slow Motion – Muscle Strengthening Game
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Here is a fun, simple strengthening exercise that requires no equipment – slow motion. When you slow down a motion it requires more muscle control and a longer muscle contraction. Pretend to act out the following activities in s-l-o-w motion:
- Running a race
- Shooting a basketball
- Walking up or down stairs
- Bicycle riding laying on your back
- Ballet dancing
- Karate kicks
- Jumping rope
Try to create a group dance where you all perform synchronized movements in slow motion!
