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.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
