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.

Hi Sharon

Your best bet is to talk to your doctor to get specific advice about what exercise is safe and what they would recommend based on your medical conditions.

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.
