Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Registered nurse Nancy Tedesco presents a series of exercises designed to help seniors and wheelchair-bound individuals stay in shape without endangering their health or safety. The workout begins with Tedesco sitting in a chair, calmly doing arm exercises that require viewers to concentrate on their wrist and finger positions. During the second segment, she encourages everyone to use light hand weights and elastic bands for resistance training. Tedesco notes that soup cans and other handy items can be substituted for formal hand weights. Though this program is scaled down in intensity, viewers are still urged to check with their doctors before using this or any other workout tape.
