Good online cardio?



Recommended Posts

Hi - it is getting hotter and more humid here, plus there are more folks outside, so I'm finding it really hard to get outside for walks. Before all this started, I was finishing week for of C25K, but I really can't run with a mask on. I still do Pilates 1-2 times a week, but REALLY need some cardio. I've tried some online classes, but haven't found anything that really works for me. I really want something focused on cardio (so not weights or a bunch of planks, etc). I've tried some Zumba - they're OK, but I am not coordinated, so I'd say I run in place for about 1/2 of any given class because I can't do the moves. Would love any recommendations. I have Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, and of course anything else that is free and web-based. Thanks!

I am also looking for some indoor cardio because I hike and walk hills and am worried about what cardio I am going to do when it gets snowy or too cold outside. The plan was to take up kickboxing, but I don't want to go to a gym at this point or wear a mask while I am working out. So I recently discovered old school Taebo workouts on YouTube which should give me my cardio/kickboxing fix this season. there are plenty of cardio vids on YouTube, but I admit that it does take some sorting through to find something that you like. I like Madfit because she has some great HIIT, low impact (no jumping), cardio vids I am going to try. I also like the Popsugar and Xhit (for strength mostly) channels. T25 was recommended to me and may be available on YouTube. I also purchased a jump rope which is excellent cardio. running stairs, especially as part of an hiit circuit, is great if u have an indoor flight of stairs. dancing to your favorite music is another option. get creative. you can def get in a good cardio workout at home.

Check out BodyGroove on YouTube it similar to Zumba but there is absolutely no coordination needed and it will get your heart moving. You can watch several episodes.

I don't know how old you are but there are free fitness workouts on AARP and Silver Sneakers websites.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
