  • I've been away from SP for 8 weeks recovering from surgery. Having a cast on my leg has kept me sedentary for too long. I was able to do this workout with some lower body modification. I was surprised how my heart rate increased. Please post more videos for folks with restricted movement/disabili

  • I have knee problems it prevents me from working out. I never thought I could get a real workout sitting on a chair. I WAS WRONG . - 1/20/2015 9:02:30 AM
  • Please add more seated cardio! I am kind of banged up and my choices are limited but am working on moving more. I take a 10 min walk, 11 min Seated Cardio and 10 min spin on my Exercycle. I actually enjoy my 31 min workout, which is saying a lot, and although 31 min of exercise doesn't sound like much, it inspires me to move more throughout the day. Sparkpeople.com is the best thing ever; I downloaded your app and am on my way to a better life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! - 1/12/2015 6:55:11 PM

  • This is a great seated workout! I am stuck at my desk all day on Sundays and so I need something to still get my exercise in. I pair this one with the "9 Minute Seated Upper Body Workout" video. I usually walk around the building and use the stairwells during the week, but Sunday always gets neglected lol Thanks SparkPeople for this perfect workout! - 1/4/2015 11:52:45 AM
  • I am still recovering from my knee replacements. This workout was great!! - 1/3/2015 9:58:08 AM
  • This was a lot more intense than I expected. I can feel the burn! This changes my perspective on shorter workouts. I will be doing this at work. - 1/3/2015 5:35:48 AM
  • Wow! Woke up yesterday with an ailing ankle (it happens out of the blue from when I fell down steps and sprained both ankles 9 years ago... and a pediatrician acquaintance told me this will happen most likely for the rest of my life... lots of icing and taking it easy). But signed up for the January Jumpstart... I could have started next week but wanted to keep today and was happy to find this exercise... I was able to move but no weight on the ankle! Yay!
