I do a lot of working out to Leslie Sansone and Jessica Smith. I have purchased quite a few of both their dvd's and watched free videos of theirs on You Tube. Does anyone know of any other videos from other fitness people I could watch online for free that involve walking for around 3/4 miles to music?View Thread
Mostly sedentary late 30s autistic female with a lot of body pain and dysfunction.
Weight & Height @ 155 & 5"4
I have an old recumbent bike here that I really want to use to help me reach my goal of 126lbs and fit/healthy.
My weight has been up to 230lbs at most and when I saw that (way back Xmas 2006...) I vowed to never see that again!
So far I have never. I have been losing and maintaining since.
Now I want the most efficient workout with this bike (and maybe some balance exercises and push-up challenge I was thinking?) and today I am reading about these [seemingly> complicated routines where you exert yourself 90% for a short time and rest -- repeat.
Well that doesn't help me because it doesn't seem like I could keep up with something like that. I feel like if I just go ride however I want whenever I want, I am not being efficient and possibly even harming myself. Further. I have been living with terrible 24/7 body pain for years, as well. This is my main reason for exercising. I am told if I want to rid the pain naturally, without surgery or medications, I have to exercise.
I really do want to get this done but I also know my personal limits and what happens if I push them (total shut down!) and I don't have any support system at home.
Could someone set me straight on a good routine for someone like me?
Basically I am wondering if I can still reach my goal by just riding this thing whenever I feel like it and as hard or slow as I want and still see fair results or if I really ought to try and suck it up harder and figure out a way to make the recommended routines work for me?
Also what about injuring myself?
Please note that I have been to many kinds of doctor types (the real ones to the not so real...) and unable to do physiotherapy and mess due to sensitivities ... Drs just want to give me meds. I know all the rules too. Diet, exercise, breathing, posture, relaxation...
