My problem is that I don't know how to rate the exercise that I do because I don't walk at 2 or three miles per hour but still I am exercising. My heart rate is elavated quicker than those that are healthy. To most people I will just be moving but to me I am doing good exercise. My doctor tells me that walking no matter how fast is what will keep me healthy. I am thinking about getting a mini bike that can be used while sitting for legs and also can be used by the hands.
I am looking to really get back to exercise. I have COPD with Asthma and back and neck problems that stem from not being able to breathe well. I get very short of breath when I exercise so need to go slowly. I would like to get back to my 45 minute slow walk 7 days a week and at least 30 minutes upper body strength and dumbbell exercise. Any suggestions from people with limitations.
