I tried the 11 min chair cardio and was quite surprised by the intensity (or maybe I am just really out of shape) - I felt like it was just the challenge I needed....and you gotta start somewhere

You dont have to like me. Thats my job.

I did this same workout and loved it to, my favorite workout though is still the Wall Push-Ups, my arms burn but I am still able to do them, which I don't with some of the others.

Puddy, I will look for the other seated workouts.

We will all keep moving our bodies thanks to Coach Nicole's workouts and the discussions with our SparkPeople friends.

I TRIED THE VIDEO, BECAUSE I THOUGHT YOU COULDN'T GET A GOOD WORKOUT WHILE SITTING. BOY, WAS I WRONG. IT KEPT MY HEART RATE UP AND I WAS SWEATING. I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE COORDINATION. MY LEFT ARM WANTS TO WORK WITH MY LEFT LEG STILL SOMETIMES, ESPECIALLY IF I TRY TO SPEED UP. I HAVE A NEW ADMIRATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TO USE A CHAIR. YOU ARE MY HEROES.

EVERY DAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT. TODAY'S CHOICES FOLLOW YOU THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

One of our assignments was to Try a SparkPeople WorkOut video. I chose the 11-Minute Chair Cardio Workout video because I have had problems with my knee this month.

This work out with Coach Nicole was a good one. I increased my intensity level without hurting myself. She offers alternatives for the movements throughout the video.

I was slightly sweating and breathing hard, but I could still speak. "Still able to speak" is one of my barometers for exertion.

I do need to work on my coordination. Getting my hands and feet moving at the same time in different directions was a laugh. The good news is that it did not matter that I was doing my left arm when she was doing her right one. The important part was that I was moving and my heart muscle and lungs were exercising.

The only other problem I had was when lifting the feet quickly from side to side I had a tendency to lean back. I had to keep reminding myself to sit up straight. Hmmm? Could it be my big belly got in the way when I lifted my knees and forced me to lean back? I will keep exercising and eventually that belly that gets in my way will be gone.

Has anyone else tried this Spark People video?
