I'm not sure about burning calories but i have a yoga ball and resistance bands i use twice a day for stretches and to bridges (booty lifts) while laying down I'm not sure if you are doing physical therapy (or graduated) and stretches already or not but I find they help keep me somewhat mobile even on my bad pain days, it hurts but i feel better after for doing them and then feel like I can walk around the house or go to the store ect.. If you aren't doing those things let me know and I can try to put together a discriptive list of my routine. Staying mobile even if you are in bed is key to recovery, I found that out the hard way.. my accident was aug 2009 and my dr told me not to do anything so i didnt and gained 60 lbs and now here it is sept 2012 i JUST started physical therapy and my therapist says im screwed cuz everything is locked up from not being used so even though i hurt my back and had a triple lumbar fusion my hips knees ect are all shot from laying in bed for 3 yrs

I will check out the link thank you for posting it.
I hope that there are some things that I could do while lying down but it gives me something to try and I can put it into the list of things to work up too.

I was watching dr oz on t.v and seen something about raspberry keytone and everytime i google it I get a diet link so I am starting to think it is not something that one can just pick up at a herbal store.


The most motivational link I have ever seen.. please watch and share it with anyone that needs help to keep going.

My workouts vary depending on my pain level. I set a timer for about 30 minutes and walk throughout the house, or dance for cardio. There are also seated cardio and strength training videos here on Spark. I am a part of the chair exercise team, and we have a link to the different seated exercises. On good days, I stand and exercise, or do gentle yoga. You can use weights or resistance bands to increase the intensity. Here is the link to the chair exercise team if you want to check it out. It's perfect for those of us with limitations and disabilities.

I am still somewhat new to the spine injuries I was injured in november 2010 but in the time I have been trying to keep as active as I can so much time is spent laying down that I was looking for ideas on things to do to spend calories when mobility is limited.
