An activity on "Thera Bands for Fitness" was organised on 12 March 2020 (Thursday) by the School of Medical and Allied Sciences.
These resistance bands have become an increasingly popular fitness tool amongst physiotherapists. They use it to improve strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles.
It’s a cost-effective workout that can be done anytime without any inconvenience.
Dr. Mamta Shankar from the Department of Physiotherapy and her students demonstrated simple exercises that can be performed using resistance bands.
Around 50 students and all the faculty members of SMAS actively participated in the activity.
Each exercise was first demonstrated and then volunteers from the audience were invited to try out the exercises with the bands.
The activity was informative, interesting and fun for the participants. One of the many benefits of regular exercise is increased and sustained energy throughout the day.
This energy allows the employee to stay focused, bringing the best of themselves to each task.
