This video incorporates everything including strength, cardio, upper body, and lower body exercises all performed seated with water bottles or dumbbells in any weight range!
This is a very gentle total body strength workout for beginners. While most of the exercises are seated, some are performed standing and use the chair for support.
This workout is a full range upper body workout great for those who are new to strength training or those with limited mobility. Beginners can use water bottles or soup cans for weights – others can increase the intensity with free weights!
The use of dumbbells makes this a great workout for beginners (use light weights or no weight!) as well as advanced exercisers with a lower body injury. The focus is on upper body strength with a few lower body and cardio movements mixed in.
This is a wonderful strength based seated exercise video that even includes a short pause to monitor blood sugar for those who may have a new diabetes diagnosis. The instructors use dumbbells, but water bottles, soup cans or milk jugs could certainly be used instead. This workout is great for beginners, but using heavier weights also makes the routine suitable for more advanced exercisers who may have limited mobility due to an injury.
