  • No time for the workout today - but our Church had a 5 mile prayer walk this morning so I'll settle for that!

    I was using a treadmill for exercise. It is broken now. So I started doing a cardio workout with spark video.
  • This felt good. I have a frozen shoulder, so I did the arm exercises one-handed;
  • I am not ready to try this exercise program yet. I did not say no. I want to lose a few moe pounds & then I will give it a try.
  • Thanks to those of you in your 70s that have commented here about trying to keep exercising. You are an inspiration to me. I'm in my 50s and disabled and it's so easy to just want to give up. Your positivity will keep me going another day.
  • I will be 70 in August. Like you, the most popular exercise workouts are difficult for me as well, especially things like lunges and squats. I would appreciate any tips on good cardio exercises for aging bones.
  • I will do what I can, like some of the others I have some health issues. At the age of 72 I believe most of us would have issues. Is there anyone that would be willing or able to help the older ones do some exercises?

    With my physical issues there is no way I can get through these! I thought they were geared towards people like me but they are not. I'll have to look elsewhere.
  • Started to watch one of the videos, but three of the first five exercises I could not begin to do with moderate arthritis in both knees and hips. Squats and lunges are not going to happen. I can walk forever on flat ground, but stairs are difficult and incredibly painful.

    I would suggest as an alternative Leslie Sansone's walking videos or the HappyYoga videos. They are much more accessible to me than the "official" things, and when there is something I can't do, I can usually see a simple way to modify the move to make it do-able.

    I thought this video would be easy. NOOOOO on those squats and lunges BUT it was GREAT feeling those muscles working. Looking forward to doing this again. Thanks!
  • Pool at the rec reopens Tuesday and I will be there. Best workout for those of us with arthritic knees

    I have copd and am on oxygen......so Ihave to watch my oxygen levels while exercising. I need to loose about 100 lbs and get some energy back. I am in my 70's I am glad to have Spark People to help guide me on this journey.
  • LGRASSHOPPER
    I am going to start with the videos for 3 days a week and then the cardio. I do have an elliptical machine and a treadmill. I also have a Curves membership that has the Jillian Michaels on the circuit. So I will incorporate all these together and hope to lose weight and tone up.
