Description: Stay Strong, Stay Healthy–Level 2 is a follow-up to the Stay Strong, Stay Healthy program.
Curriculum/program overview: The SSSH–Level 2 program was developed in 2009 by a team of MU Extension Specialists to meet the increasing need for a follow-up program to the 8-week SSSH program.
The goal of the SSSH–Level 2 program is to expand the fitness base acquired from SSSH by adding new and more challenging exercises. SSSH–Level 2 is designed to challenge older adults in new and different ways, to help avoid staleness and plateaus, and to improve daily living activities. This 8-week program features exercises using resistance from body weight, hand weights and ankle weights. It also features balance exercises, core exercises, low back exercises and flexibility exercises.
