    can do most, working on mountain climbers. Hard on my wrists.
  • Burpees, jumping jacks, jump rope
  • These are some fun and effective moves! Thanks for the great article, photos, and idea.
  • As soon as my knees are replaced, I'll be doing these. Now it's just walking at work (with my cane), isometrics and upper body strength training with a 5# weight.

    Sigh.
  • Jumping jacks are a high-impact move. Both feet are leaving the floor at the same time. How about an exercise for those of us who can't jump due to physical limitations?

    I am grateful for the low impact level of your exercise options. Being just diagnosed with a rare disease that has literally killed my ankle bones I cannot do any jumping-type exercise, but need to get this weight off to help keep my ankles from collapsing. Thank you greatly.
  • Great idea with moves that are easy to learn and remember. Thanks Spark People!

    These are very helpful. With a bit of a wonky lower back and being 71, I'll modify a few, but breaking out short intervals is doable, even for 'geezer' thanks
  • Ten minute increments of exercise are beneficial. For instance, 3 workout sessions 10 minutes each exercise...equal to 30 mins of exercise is beneficial. As your body strengthens you can work up to an hour. I hope I helped answer your question.

    :D
  • Ok, we have some contradictory information here. SP talks about short workouts being beneficial, but in the next breath says that if you don't work out for an hour a day, you're not doing enough. So what's the truth? I've been asking this question and have never gotten an answer.

    I exercise after work, but that wasn't a choice.
  • Perfect timing! I'm trying to fit short bursts of exercise in first thing in the morning before leaving home. This will give me a nice variety, and I'll try to fit in the whole 10 min.

    Right now I'm doing squats while I brush my teeth, some wall pushups, and some crunch moves.

    Thanks so much!!
  • thanks for putting this together Nicole, great idea for quick 10 minute cardio!
  • Hey this looks great Nicole!
    Was looking for a group of exercises to mix up my routine,
    Will try these out.

    Thanks for the tips.
  • I'll try this. I'll do everything except those mountain climbers. I will make up my own move to sub for that one.
