It’s important to move our bodies as much as we can, even just to get the blood flowing! Sometimes chronic illness warriors find it difficult to get up and about, so this is an easy practice to get some movement in – either sitting or lying down – without putting too much strain on the body or taking too much energy. Plus it can be done multiple times per day if needed and only takes about 20-30 seconds each round.
Keep making the most of it!

Due to the popularity of the first video (and to be honest my love of working my abs this way) I decided to do a part 2. Make sure you consult your healthcare professionals when making changes to your exercise routine. These chair exercises are great for people with disability, with chronic pain, chronic illness, anyone recovery from surgery, and seniors. Make sure you adapt them to your own abilities (which is what I always do too!). Listen to lupus warrior, Trachele, talk about her experiences with exercising on the podcast.
Here is the link to the full workout I reference in the video.
Enjoy your exercises and keep making the most of it!
Hi Everyone! I’ve got a new limited mobility workout option for you that combines cardio and strength training. This was something I did (modified of course) during my initial hip recovery. As I’m still recovering it’s a great workout to have in my repertoire for days I don’t feel like I can do a lot on my feet. Make sure you consult with your healthcare team before starting a new workout routine! I’ll link the workout I did below. Enjoy!
My hip arthroscopy left me limited mobility for 6 weeks so I decided to find some safe ways I could still get some exercise in. Chair cardio is one of those ways! Make sure you always consult with your healthcare team before starting any type of workout and you can always modify to keep things within what is safe for you.
I like chair cardio workouts on Youtube by Paul Eugene but there are tons on there you can find!
Remember, exercise is one of the essentials of health! Check out my podcast episode about that here!
