Seated workouts – not just for the mobility challenged
Tuesday, May 07, 2013
I run over 20 miles a week, but when seeking a spark video I turn to the seated workouts first.
I know the importance of moving your whole body. My whole body moves a lot and quite happily too. Exercise was never my problem. I just ate enormous quantities of food.
I understand that the seated workouts were probably originally designed for those who have trouble standing for extended periods. However, I’ve become a fan too.
When I view a seated video
I’m sitting right in front of the screen.
My focus is on the moves being demonstrated
My form mirrors the instructor and form is important
I can concentrate on my upper body
These are moves I can do throughout the day while sitting in a confined space.
Sometimes I don’t even need a video. Yesterday’s Spark email began with seated yoga poses. DH & I have another cruise coming up (after an 8 hr flight). Talk about confined spaces! This is the printout I’ll be taking with me.
Numbers 7 & 8 will have to wait til we get into our cabin. I don’t want to upset the flight crew.
