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!!!
Lots of great ideas have been suggested so far…another one to try may be rowing. If you can keep the seat stationary and just have her use her upper body/arms if will definitely keep her heart rate up. Otherwise, the water is a great place to exercise with a knee injury. Just make sure you consult with her PT to see what she can do at this stage.
Whatever you decide to do with her, make sure she is still having fun! Wedding planning is sooo stressful as it is and I’m sure she is getting anxious! Congrats to her!
