The Boomer Esiason Foundation has released Episode 19 of the CF Wind Sprint series: Exercises for the Legs.
In this brief video, BEF Volunteer Jerry Cahill demonstrates simple exercises to strengthen the legs, including squats, squat jumps, split squats and lunges. Jerry shows how canned goods from your pantry can add weight and make the exercises a little more difficult. He also reminds viewers that the exercises don’t have to be done in a gym—they can be done at home—and to always focus on breathing.
CF Wind Sprints is a series of brief videos addressing a variety of topics relevant to living with cystic fibrosis, including traveling, nutrition, exercise and treatments. The Wind Sprint series is made possible by an unrestricted educational grant from Genentech to the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
BEF invites the CF community to submit questions and topics for CF Wind Sprints via its Facebook fan page or on Twitter.
