Thanks to my 12-year-old ... I'm challenged on a daily basis. Here are some other things that I've done that get me moving some ...
Wii Sports Resort --
Table Tennis - As you get better at it, the games get longer, and the shots get trickier and you move more.
Swordplay -- You can progress against different opponents one by one ... or you can progress against armies of swordsmen. Either way, you get good sweat, and increased heart rate.
Canoe Races/Rowing -- Alternating left and right in the rowing motion, gets your heart rate up, makes you sweat, and tones the waist and upper back.
Cycling Race -- Can get your heart rate up if you're in it to win it.
Basketball - That 3-point-shot showdown is killer. For me, I have to make sure my eyes AND arms move toward where the basket ought to be, otherwise I miss, and because I hate being beat by the computer, I keep going and going.
Tennis Game -- Like table tennis above, but something about it seems more of a workout. I think your arms swing a lot more.
Baseball -- Really good sweat out of this one, especially if you play the full 3 innings.
Boxing -- Great for the heart rate. As the technique gets better, you get knocked out less often LOL. Gives you good sweat and a sense of accomplishment when you knock the stew out of your opponents. LOL.
This is what I can remember now, aside from Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus.
I have knee surgery on Thursday and am trying to make sure I can keep exercising in a way that won't hurt the recovery. As knee surgeries go, it's baby one, but I won't have full mobility for a few days.
Hope someone finds this list useful.
Taking one day, one hour, one minute at a time, building on previous successes, learning from my failures.
