    I have had bladder cancer surgery and I really think this is going to help me with bending over to pick things up without feeling 100 years old

    Thank you for this. I’ve been trying to get into a regular movement routine, but have back and leg issues. This is perfect for me.

    I’ve been wanting to find a video that had upper body exercises but got halfway thru and was tired. I know I’ll be sore tomorrow but after 6 months of stuff they do at this nursing home is a joke . Not a spring chicken at 63 but was in better shape before my incident and lost my muscle tone and had and stil good muscle strength and lost weight. The more you do get much easier. To read comments from my fellow wheel bound associates whose also need to stay in shape. Peace out.

    Thanks for sharing! It’s great to see people benefiting from this. I stumbled upon this video in my recommended video feed as I have also posted a chair based exercise video on my channel that a number of patients have found helpful. Would like to know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s great to have access to this. I am a PT in Canada, and often I get excuses from mobility-compromised patients not to exercise. This is a great option for those who cannot exercise standing. There are so many mental health benefits from exercising in addition to the known physical benefits! Thanks for the courageous group who generously participated in this video. Bravo.

    While typing this, I’m currently in a Kaiser Permanente hospital with COVID and these exercises are helping my body to become reconditioned to movement while I’m stuck in this bed. So far, after only 3 days of this routine, I’m able to take several steps (with a walker) without becoming winded and feeling exhausted. Thank you, Kaiser, for this video and for your skilled, knowledgeable, and personable medical team!!



  23. al masnun on August 1, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    nice;



  24. Livia Vodarici on August 1, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you for posting this workout, for me is definitely good as I feel the hardship of doing it. Is this also efficient if you want to lose weight? I know that cardio exercises are good for this goal too. I am not in shape as I need to have a good workout routine, and I want to know if these exercises are efficient to lose some fat around the abdomen area and to strenghten a bit those muscles.
    Does anybody know exactly?



  25. Sarah Reboucas Reedman on August 1, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    How many calories can you roughly burn by doing this?



  26. Shirley Fidder on August 1, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    This is one of the best seated videos I have found for upper body workouts. I have lower back problems which makes exercising easier for me when I am seated. Thank you for sharing.



  27. Stephanie on August 1, 2021 at 9:50 pm

  37. lib mitchell on August 1, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    thanks for this. i had a hip replacement and am going stir crazy not being able to exercise. I could put my operated leg up on a chair and get a bit of cardio going – so GOOD for my disposition which was getting grumpy and depressed. I enjoyed participating with the participants, feeling and seeing that smile from oxytocin or whatever it is that exercise releases. Thank you.



  38. Precious Jhen on August 1, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Thank u for sharing this, I would do this . Keep sharing & enjoy .



  39. Valerie Farragher on August 1, 2021 at 10:11 pm

  41. Goldfish Lover on August 1, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Nice video workout!!



  42. Suzanne Menuet on August 1, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    I’m so glad I found this! I’ve been trying to find videos featuring paraplegics of my capabilities. Most I’ve found are ones where they get in the floor, or it’s able-bodied therapist teaching. Like, how is it helpful if you don’t truly know how my body works.
    I’m definitely out of shape, but feel confident your videos will help. Hopefully, with more viewing, I won’t need as many breaks. Thank you for this!



  43. Baljit Kaur on August 1, 2021 at 10:14 pm

  44. Lanet Forrest on August 1, 2021 at 10:15 pm
