You guys have to try this! What a great workout! There were some things I couldn't do because of the PsA in my shoulder, but at only 17 minutes, it's easy, I was sweating and breathing hard, I felt like I accomplished something, and they also show you lower-impact ways of doing the movements.

As best I can figure, barre is a cardio form of a warm-up for ballerinas, which uses a lot of isometric movements rather than impact. I totally meant to find a video last night and try it, but the couch sucked me in and made me a friend...

Found a video on sparkpeople of a barre workout, looks really great (I miss dancing!) so I'm trying it tonight! Already saved it so I can find it easier later!

Swimming is also a good option. It gives a total body workout and has no impact. It even causes you to stretch your hands and fingers.

I've been lifting weights for about a month, and seen improvement in muscle definition and bulk, plus seen a tiny bit of my abdominal bulk slim down. I feel stronger, and my morning stiffness has gone down. So, I thought, "if I want to lose weight, I need to add in cardio! Kickboxing sounds like fun!" which just proves I leap before I think... I left halfway through crying... so instead of kickboxing, I'm going to try barre. My facebook group all said that they loved it, so here goes nothing!

Exercise has been so hard to fit in my schedule this summer. So school starts tomorrow so I will be starting a new daily routine. I can either exercise when I get off work or when I HAVE to get up and get the kids ready for school. I think my goal will be to do 10 minutes of exercise each morning after kids are at school. Then I can relax and maybe take a nap before I go to work in the afternoon. Just think, its only 10 minutes. You can do it!

Walking is good or how about a bike ride either or stationary bike or "for real". Would avoid resistance in the beginning. Elliptical also nice as it doesn't put stress on your knees. Good luck!

Any suggestions for simple daily exercise?? I need to do something daily so it will become a healthy habit. I need to find something that will not be stressful on my knees. I don't swim so that's out. Maybe start with stretching and toning for the first week or two then add 10 minute walk or video...

For me walking, stretching and weight training have been the best exercises.

I can't use a pool because the chlorine bothers me. Oh well!

It does seem to make joint pain and stiffness worse INITIALLY but if I push through reasonably it makes it all feel much better after awhile.

I find that any exercise may make pain worse initially but will gradually get better as long as I stick with it. For me pain is not the worst part of this problem, the debilitating fatigue is awful. But so much of life is your mind set. I tell myself to push through this flare will wane and surely it eventually does. If I don't mind it, it won't matter. I just modify higher impact exercises to make them less extreme.

My husband suggests a pool or spa. He also says just low impact walking.

I think anything that is non-impact is ok, as long as you feel it's ok. I use a stationary bike and eliptical, but no treadmill (ouch!). I just started exercizing at all so I am just doing 20-30 minutes at a time and hoping to work myself up.

Does anyone have any suggestions for any sort of exercise that can be done with this condidtion? I have been told to go swimming but I'm not ready for that yet.
I have a spinning bike and am thinking of trying this, can anyone recommend it?
