Too bad this is not a routine you can do daily. Since most experts recomend a day of rest between working various muscles, I do upper body one day and lower body the next. However I do have a oroblem finding good standing leg exercises I can do. I do not own any chairs that are stable enough to do sitting exercises, due to bad knees I cannot get down (and get up again) on the floor to do any exercises. I have tried doing leg lifts on both my bed and couch, and I cannot get proper form as I sink in to much. I did leg lifts on the firm benches at therapy ok. I went to physical therapy for a while for my knees and they said don't do anything that hurts, but most everything they had me do hurt, so i stopped going. I have a tiny, full apartment and am unemployed over 2 years, so new equipment us out of the question. Also In the past I purchased some exercise stretch bands, but they were both humongously long and not adjustable. - being super short one size fits all does not work. Even machines at the womans gym I joined for a while a long time ago, could not be adjusted down to where i could exercise in comfort.
