My client recently reinjured a knee that’s been problematic for a long time. It’s a severe sprain and her wedding is only 6 weeks away. She is bummed to say the least and desperate to continue to lose weight up until the big day. Once the swelling subsides I can have her on her feet but for the time being we will be seated for most of the workout. We will focus mostly on upper body and I could use ideas for either position (seated or standing) that will keep her heart rate elevated!!!
Here’s 2 off the top of my head:
Upper body kickboxing! No weight, or you can add 2 lb weights (or whatever he/she can handle).
50 jabs, 50 hook, 50 uppercuts, 50 elbows etc.
Repeat until she is bored!
Or, vigorous Pilates. If you don’t know Pilates, anything on a mat that necessitates continuous fluid movement. I can really get my students heart rates up with mat work!
