    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.

  • 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.
  • I love this 10 exercise cardio. I work at home and I can do each one for 1 minute and get 10 min of exercise. This warms me up and allows me to keep the furnance off during the day. It also gets the blood moving and I get more done than sitting on my butt all the time. It is so handy to have the video right next to the exercise, It makes it much more user friendly. Thank you!
  • This was really cute! Thank you Smiles all
  • might sound silly, but how do you know if your 'abs are engaged'? send me a msg if you have the answer. thanks.
  • It is such a helpful post! Thank you so much SP! This is exactly what I need, I can do all of these, and they can be done in various combinations that makes the workout better. I will squeeze them in whenever I can.

    First a big compliment to SP for showing the videos right next to the exercises. Too many times these are available only by clicking a link, and after two or three, I get tired of the process.

    Second, I feel sorry for all the nay-sayers. Yes there are a few among us with chronic joint problems that cannot be fixed, but as several people noted, IF you slowly build the muscles, and IF you continue these exercises over a long period of time, you can give muscular support to the joints that need it, especially knees, ankles and hips. Losing some pounds helps, too! I know several people in my age group (over 65) who started with very limited mobility and chair exercises, who are now walking several miles a day.

    Also, I recommend that those with joint pain look into stretching exercises, especially those recommended by Pete Egoscue or right here on SP. Many times pain around the knee and hip joints is actually caused by tight muscles that are pulling on the joint. In the case of the knee joint, especially the quadriceps, the ham strings and the IT band. SP just had an article the other day on using a foam roller to release the IT band.

    My SO has progressed from sitting down after half a dance because of knee pain to dancing for several hours! This has been a 2-year process. But here we are -- dancing several times a week and taking ballroom dance lessons. BTW, he is 74 and I am 73,

    Stop kvetching and start moving!
  • About a week ago I started walking/jogging in place as I fix my hair in the morning. The workout is between 12 and 15 minutes every morning. Can't believe it never dawned on me before to to this! And with winter comin' on, it warms ya up nicely!
  • wow - this looks like so much fun!

    Making time for a workout is easy for me but I have such a sedentary job that I think I'm going to incorporate these into my day anyway.
