TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 31, 2011) – If your delts are droopy, your quads out of condition and your obliques obviously out of shape, a trip to the gym might be in order. Or even easier, you can click on the new USF Campus Recreation Online Exercise Library and get to work right now.
As a part of USF’s Exercise Is Medicine On Campus Initiative, Campus Recreation created the Online Exercise Library to make it easier for anyone to start exercising without a special trip to a fitness facility. The library features an interactive catalog that allows users to click on the muscle they want to work and then follow along with a video showing how to properly, effectively and safely get that particular muscle in shape.
The exercise library provides a variety of exercise options including many that can be done in various locations. Some of the exercises are very basic and require no equipment at all; instead they use one’s own body weight as a source of resistance. While others include alternative fitness equipment, such as a physioball, elastic bands or ankle weights
Resistance training should be performed two to three times a week, with eight to 12 repetitions of each exercise for each major muscle group.
