10 Standing Mild Weight Exercises

I add these to 10 weight bearing standing exercises to my Monday and Thursday routine. I like to use dumbbells or a straight bar. Start with very light weight just to get your muscles used to the motion. Then over time add a bit more weight. Be sure to learn proper technique and never have more weight than you can handle to avoid injury. Before doing any new exercise routine, consult with your physician and fitness trainer.
