The exercise in the picture is something I can not do as a person with a disability. For years I've done these only to cause my back severe pain and give up very quickly. A month ago a physical therapist showed me exercises I could do that would not cause my back any stress what so ever! I thought I'd describe them as best I could for those readers who are disabled or back sufferers. Anyone can do these and they WORK!!
Leg Exercises: For 20 minutes I do these with great intensity. I put on a 5lb ankle weight and while sitting I run in place, do leg lifts and then I stand and do half squats. Each day I alternate what I will start with so it does not become boring.
Tummy Crunches: I can not do tummy crunches in the traditional way, so while sitting straight in a chair I hold in my belly for 30 second while bringing the top of my body forward and the straight up again. I do these for 20 to 30 minutes daily. When I'm in the car I do these while hubby drives and that gives me extra exercise minutes. I also hold in my belly during commercials for extra exercise time during my favorite TV shows. Doing these for the past month has dropped my belly/waist down an entire pant size!!
Arm Exercises: I have a coffee mug that I filled with a glass egg that weighs 4 pounds. I use this as my weights and lift it in increments of ten for 8 minutes. Since I only have one arm doing it much longer becomes painful, so I stay within my limit.
I hope this helps you and will inspire many to honor their body and health!!
