My Program....Low Impact

Friday, January 25, 2013

As per docs most recent instructions....I am allowed to do only low impact aerobics. No weight lifting. I have a couple of Leslie Sansone DVDs so that I can change up my daily routine as not to get bored. Variety is the spice of life! So, my program will look like this:

Beginning date: 1/21/2013
Aerobics: Walking with Leslie Sansone
10mins first week, 5 times week

1/28/2013
Add 5 mins/5 times week, total of 15 mins

2/4/2013
Add 5 mins for total of 20 mins/5 times week

2/11/2013
Add 5 mins for total of 25 mins/5 times week

2/18/2013
Add 5 mns for total of 30 mins/5 times week

At this point, I will begin adding more time as I feel I can handle it and adjust my program to meet my needs for more strenuous workouts....as allowed by doctor.

Things to consider incorporating into my program at random points:
Walking outside when the weather permits as I tend to get sick easily with my immune system so low. (Walking the dog)

Towel exercise as demonstrated here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mys

Add another day to my program, making it 6 total days instead of 5.

Buy a bicycle and begin riding.

    There are some other walking workouts available on YouTube. Jessica Smith has some, Leslie Sansone has some on her WalkSocial website. So you can add even more variety.
