About the Tabata Band Reaction Workout

As we age our body slows down which is good since our joints are not going to tolerate explosive type movements. However, this slowing down causes our reaction time to decrease. This is not a good thing when it comes to staying balanced, agile and avoiding the #1 cause of injury as we reach 60 which is falling.

Training your body to stay reactive does not require doing risky types of exercises. Instead, all that is required is making sure you are working on upper and lower body coordination using short amplitude movements that are performed at a speed you feel confident with. As confidence grows you will find yourself gradually going a little quicker.

Today’s Tabata Band Reaction Workout will help you gradually develop better reactions. Progress at your own speed and make sure the band resistance you are using is at a level you feel you can easily control. Remember, it’s not about the resistance. It’s the speed and quality of the movement that is important.
