Although I can’t participate in most exercises, I do like to write about them as part of a healthy lifestyle.
It’s important we give our bodies a break from running, dancing, or playing sports and try a low-impact workout. It helps us avoid injury. You might be surprised just how effective low impact workouts can be.
Perhaps you can try these easy exercises to get your heart rate going:
Cycling is a great way to exercise without putting a strain on the joints while improving cardio fitness.
Walking is a stress-free way to get moving. This can be just a leisurely stroll or a more strenuous countryside walk to get that heart rate up.
Yoga and Pilates
Sadly, we won’t get a strong core by just doing crunches. Try Yoga or Pilates instead to quickly improve flexibility without putting too much strain on the joints.
Rowing is another easy way to get in some cardio whilst also working our arms, back, legs, and core.
Swimming is another great low-impact exercise with lots of benefits, from strengthening shoulders to improving lung function.
Dancing is gentle on the body and is an excellent way of getting out, meeting people and benefiting from some gentle exercise all at the same time.
Finally, low-impact workouts are easy on the body and can be a great way to get in a heart-pumping workout without worrying also having to deal with injuries.
