New CPR

Each few years I take a CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) course to keep up my certification for teaching. It was interesting to discover that there is a better and easier to do CPR. This new way is simple enough that all of us can and should learn by watching the following video:

Although this new hands only CPR method is not intended for drownings, it is easy to learn and use. We all can, with a little review, store this method in our minds and be ready to help a neighbor when the need arises.

See Ya at the Gym!

About Vic

As a retired Commercial/Missionary pilot and administrator, I started taking SilverSneakers® classes in 2007. Although I had kept up minimal jogging and biking, I had little lean body mass and extra fat, so I started lifting weights and joined a Group Power barbell class. Later I was challenged to use free weights for heavier lifting and body weight exercises for flexibility and functional fitness. The SilverSneakers® Coordinator asked if I would train to teach the class. Little did I realize that it would take almost a year, four classes, a practical evaluation, plus an on-line 100 question test, to complete the certification. I am still impressed with the research and years of practical experience that has gone into the SilverSneakers® model.
