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!!!
I agree that the use of a hand ergometer is a great way to go. I use it with several of my elderly clients as well as with my athletes. You can create some challenging and fun intervals for your client using this piece of equipment, giving her some cardio and strength work at the same time.
I hope that this helps.
