  • I hated strength training until I discovered the seated videos. Thankfully I don't have mobility challenges, but I find these exercises valuable because they allow me to focus on one muscle group at a time.

    I'm sharing this with my sister-in-law, she has a lot of health issues that limit her mobility and has become very depressed about her weight gain. She can only stand/walk for short periods of time.
  • Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you so much for this..I was severely injured in a car accident that had me in a wheel chair for 5 yrs.. 18 leg and feet operations..Well I packed on pounds
    I'm up and walking but with a lot of pain so the weight gain continues. I so tired of talking about what I can't do instead of doing what I can do.
    I sooooo need to get moving!!!! Thanks!
  • I need to use this resource more often! I do have a hard time finding exercises that work for me and then I get discouraged and quit! I know this is here but, I am horrible at using it! Time to make a change!
  • Thanks for this article...I will give it a try. I will also be starting a water workout soon. I have limited mobility & use a wheelchair due to 2 back surgeries (lower & upper) that didn't do much but left me with severe back pain still, osteoarthritis & trouble with my knees & hips. I also have lost grip strength & have numbness in my right hand. I get some cardio by walking & rolling in my wheelchair.

    Thank you for this as I need to be able to exercise but am limited what I can do so now I feel I can do more so bless you.
  • Thanks for this one.
  • Perfect timing now that I've severely injured my knee.
  • I can try yhis when my hip is hurting.
  • This is a great article for me; I can use these exercises while my fractured ankle is healing.
  • Eureka! I've been looking for these articles and links. Now, I can do some strength training that's appropriate! Thank you!

    I have been dealing with physical limitations since I had surgery for cancer, I no longer have adductor muscles, along with other missing parts, hip, bones etc... So alot of the exercises that are on here are not possible for me to do..however, there are some that I can do. Bottom line, I will do what I am capable of doing and keep exercising despite the pain(everyday thing). Thanks for the encouragement.
