My Cup Runneth Over: The Plastic Cup Balance Workout

A top notch balance and fall prevention program does not need specialized equipment or a huge budget.  Let Guy Andrews of Exercise ETC Inc show you over a dozen activities designed to improve balance and cognition using lowly (and cheap!) plastic beverage cups.  This fast paced webinar will expose you to unique, imaginative drills to increase core strength, improve posture, enhance mobility,  boost self-confidence and decrease fall risk – using only plastic beverage cups for equipment.  You’ll leave this one-of-a-kind webinar inspired to try all of these drills (and maybe invent some of your own) and your clients will marvel at your ingenuity!

Objectives:

1. List risk factors that increase the chances of an older adult falling

2. Demonstrate how to use plastic beverage cups to design drills to improve core strength, enhance mobility, increase lower body strength and reduce fall risk.

3. Explain how reducing the risk of falling can boost confidence and a sense of self-efficacy in older adults.
