Increase the strength in your arms and back with Live for Advent: Armed for Life. The strengthening exercises used in the class will help you improve your ability to lift heavier objects while working on the mobility of your shoulder and elbow joints. To improve how your arms look—and, more importantly, how they work, join Betsy for this gentle arm workout. You will need a set of light hand weights, but feel free to use something around the house like food cans. You can still get a workout if you do not use weights. The meditation will help you better prepare for Christmas by contemplating Joy as we await our Lord’s birth!
