Exercise with Limited Mobility

Exercise with Limited Mobility

Help Guide is helping us establish what workouts to do, how to set yourself up for success and how to stick with your workout routine with limited mobility.

Remember that limited mobility doesn’t mean you can’t exercise! There are many ways you can move to relive stress, anxiety, ease desperation, and boost self-esteem. Maybe you are wondering what type of exercises to do. Help Guide says there are 3 types of exercises.

  1. Cardiovascular exercises - walking, running, cycling, dancing, tennis, swimming and water aerobics.
  2. Strength training exercises - involve weights, building body mass and building bone mass.
  3. Flexibility exercises - yoga, pilates, enhance range of motion, reduce pain and reduce stiffness. 

Sometimes it is hard for us to stick with workouts. Help Guide tells us how to set yourself us for success. Talk to your doctor about what exercises would be best, any activities to avoid and how often to exercise each day or week. Start off with an exercise routine and listen to your body when to take a break!
