  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
