Wow. I can get my heart rate up doing seated exercises! Facing knee replacement this is great for me. I've been told I cannot do jumping jacks, lunges, running or even fast walking. If I do, the knee replacement will come sooner than later. I tried this video thinking, "I'll try it, but I doubt it can really work." I am proud to say I was wrong. I'm excited to try the other seated workouts to see how far I can go and what I can accomplish.
This is the first time I've ever done cardio and I am probably ready for a nap!! I don't exercise or at least haven't because I have 2 blown out knees that will be getting replaced once I drop all this weight!! I miss riding a bike and walking!!
Since I am busy when I get home I am going to be doing this at work during my lunch.

This is really great! I am 55 and have advanced degenerative arthritis (bone on bone) in both knees. I feel like I don't have much upper body strength and I know I need more stamina. This didn't hurt my knees! But it got my heart rate up (I am sweaty) and I feel great for having done the whole 11 minutes, with little modifications that I will work on eliminating. Thanks Spark People, and Nicole and my sister, Gennifer, for telling me about it!
This was great for me as I have knee pain and can not do other cardio jumpy videos. Since it was my 1st time I stayed at low intensity, but plan to work up as I get better. It got my heart rate up enough to break a sweat. Thanks Nicole.
It takes some coordination that I apparently do not possess to do some of those moves but if I stayed at the lowest intensity I could make it through the entire thing. I know that one day my leg muscles will be strong enough to do those kicks, that day is just not today. I'm going to keep at it.
