I've been having a lot of issues with my feet lately (itching, peeling, water bubbles - sorry to gross anyone out!) and a few days ago it suddenly flared up to the point that I could barely walk. My mom (a nurse) gave me some gel to put on 3x a day and it's definitely starting the heeling process. However, I can't do the walking that I usually like to do at 6 a.m. in the morning. So I thought, since I have to stay off of my feet as much as possible, it might be a great opportunity to get into a routine of adding some resistance exercises a few times a week.
The problem is, I need exercises I can do sitting down, since standing is still quite painful for me. I have a resistance band, which I love, so I'm wondering if there are exercises that I can do with that sitting down.
Does anyone know a good website and/or video that will show me how I can such exercises?
Djuna, ouch! And good for you for not making excuses and instead finding a way to be active in spite of your limitations.
If you have any of the Fit Quickies
, you can do Flat Belly (#1), Inner thigh (#2), Triceps Triple play (#3), Gorgeous Glutes & Hamstrings (#4), Topless Muffins (#5), Kickstand Curls (#7), and Hot Seat (#8).
If you don't, then a search as defined above will no doubt help you out AND if you are skilled in weight training, any of the work you might do on a bench - Bench press for example - should work for you.
