All you need is a resistance band and a chair to perform this seated workout!
I have a really bad spinal issue, and I thought that this workout was going to affect my pain tolerance, but it actually wasn't that bad! I had to modify a couple of the stretches, but not to the extent where I did not benefit from them. I finished this workout about 5 minutes ago, and am proud to say that this is my very first 20-minute workout!!
It was challenging for sure at times but as the saying goes "If it does not challenge you it does not change you."
Thanks! I was able to fit this into my day. I found the video was fast and effective way to exercise .
These seem easy at first but I can really feel my muscles working against the band!
some parts were hard but I did it!
Thanks Coach Nicole! Great one for me.
I had plantar faciitis very bad once to the point of using crutches to move--it was very painful to walk on the foot/leg affected and could only do so by limping. At the time, I searched through my exercise dvd stash and found a couple of "chair" exercise routines which I used and they kept me from gaining weight--as well as speeding my recovery. This video would be perfect for that scenario because I could do exercise with the affected foot/leg--I just couldn't put my body weight on it while exercising.
I thought 20 minutes was going to be long. But this was a nice w/o. Thankyou!
have done this video twice now. love it, feel great afterward.
When I first found Spark this was a diabetes challenge video.
I loved it and my A1c lowered to the point I could get off Metformin.
I am back to it again and now we have a smaller place to do it in it still my favorite.
I am marking on the calendar for another month to see where my numbers go. I never weigh myself but I might try it again. I am clothes size 16 from 22.Thanks to you coach Nicole.
I am determined to do it again. Pat in Maine
I can see the exercises but I'm deaf and can not hear... is there closed captions..?
Great exercises. MS
I love that I ran into this video for at one time ,my dream was to have my own gym. I'd purchased a house that would let me turn my patio into my own gym. In a blink of a eye I lost everything and while going through my stuff found my resistance bands in a bag. I'm trying to get back into a routine and the video helps
This is a workout I can do, especially on days that my back is bothering me. I like how Nicole shows how to increase or decrease resistance.
I really enjoy these chair exercises with my respiratory and back problem its help a lot and with my change of diet wow what a deference. Its help with my weight and confidence in knowing I can and want to do this.THANK YOU !
