Loved it! I did it at my desk, without weights. I have been having pain under my left shoulder blade for several days, and after I finished this, the pain was a little better. I plan to do this a couple of times a day without weights. When I get some weights, I will start using those with it!
Nice and quiet for a morning stretch workout. Must let everyone else sleep. :)

I am an ACE certified personal trainer and Sr. Fitness specialist. I also have had MS since 1985 and work out 4-5 times per week. I was looking at your wheelchair exercises because some people in my MS group are wheelchair bound and cannot do exercises on their feet. Thanks for sharing exercise tips. I am a very motivated person.
I am so ready to succeed this time. back on low-carb. I feel so good. Crazy for me because I have several chronic illnesses and hardly no exercise. This week I started a squat challenge with friends. I walked for an hour today and I JUST did these exercises. I am actually going to get out my tape measure tonight. Have not done that in 20 years.

Great workout! I used 5 lb. weights and for me, that worked perfectly. I then did (without weights) 3 sets of the following circuit: 8 lunges (4 on each leg), 8 squats, and 15 calf raises using the wall for balance. This made it a 12 minute workout, as my current personal goal is at least 10 minutes of exercise 5 days a week. Total body workout. Feel great!
I think this is generally a good arm/shoulder workout; would be very helpful if the "coach" would speak SLOWLY so the person watching could actually do and listen and watch at the same time! Not all folks looking at this will be 30 yrs and younger. Also should have a warning about shoulder injury and moving arms above 90 deg. Let's always be careful, yes? I've been a professional clinical massage therapist for 26 years and have seen a lot of hurt shoulders.
