[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:

  1. Running a race
  2. Shooting a basketball
  3. Walking up or down stairs
  4. Bicycle riding laying on your back
  5. Ballet dancing
  6. Zumba!
  7. Karate kicks
  8. Boxing
  9. Jumping rope
  10. Hopscotch

Try to create a group dance where you all perform synchronized movements in slow motion!
