I would recommend asking your PT first to make sure they are okay with it, but our Limited Mobility Lifestyle section has workouts that can all be done from a seated position:

Hope that helps!

On May 25th, I couldn't move. To make a long story short, after visiting the ER and Neurologist, found I have a slight protrusion of the L5 disc which is impinging upon the sciatic nerve down my left leg. I am having PT, 3 times per week. Vastly improved mobility. Still experiencing some pain down the left leg in the calf and high buttock area. But no back pain at all. I am looking for help as to how to work out in a mostly sitting position? I can't use the treadmill yet, which I miss. I have not worked out at all in almost a month and it is killing me. I used to take Spin class, 4 days a week, run, and lift weights. Any suggestions for what I can do sitting or even a semi-laying position. Any help would be appreciated.
