I need your help!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I would love some ideas/tips on non-impact areobic exercise. I went to the doctor this morning and he thinks I have a stress fracture in my right foot and overextended the left knee (I don't have insurance so I opted to not have x-rays). He said to take it very easy for at least 2 weeks and if the pain was at a 2 or below I could then resume exercise slowly. I don't want to sit on my butt for the next 2 weeks though and would love to do at least a little something every day to get my heart rate up.

    There are some videos here on Spark People that can be done while sitting in a chair. I have also found some on youtube. Just do a search for low impact. Best of luck to you and speedy healing. :)

    Another idea is Pilates. I love Pilates workouts and there are many available on SparkPeople or even on-line.

    Look up some of the videos on here for chair exercise and keep your nutrition tight. That should do the trick.

    You might like t-tapp. Whatever you do, don't over do it. Just stay on top of your nutrition :)

Thanks for sharing!

    If you have access to a pool, swimming would be good.
Other suggestion I found on the WWW...
Chair Aerobics, cycling and rowing.

Praying for a quick & full recovery.
