YouTube also has a lot of seated exercise videos, senior exercise videos (even if you're not a senior-- seniors often have mobility issues) etc.

With the caveat that I'm definitely not an expert and that a physical therapist might be a great place for you to get some exercises that work for you, I'd throw out the suggestion for using a rowing machine if you're looking for a change (there are some more basic models that are quite affordable). You could also try googling or searching on youtube for different variations of seated cardio workouts.

I am disabled (I have muscular dystrophy) and it effects my strength, balance and mobility. I am able to walk for short distances but very slowly due to balance problems (and I use a cane). I've been using a combo of strength training and cardio exercises to help with my overall health but am looking for some suggestions on keeping my cardio routine fresh.

Currently I'm using Spark People's seated cardio workout video (which is great), step ups, and a version of a recumbent bike (it's just the pedals on a frame which sit on the floor so I can use it from any chair and there is a resistance knob on it).

Anyone have any other suggestions or tips on varying my cardio routine? Thanks in advance.
