Start slow. Walk around the block, or to the mail box. Keep going a little further each day, stopping for rest as needed. (My mom is a marathon runner and starter by running telephone pole to telephone poll.)
·Most Beachbody programs use a modifier. You may need to even modify the modifier. I know I did.
Can’t do a pushup even on your knees? I couldn't either. I did them against the wall. As I got stronger, I would slide my feet out further from the wall.
Keep pushing play! Guess what? Most people don’t ever make it through all of P90X the first time around. Yup, even fit people. You can only make it through five minutes of the workout? GREAT! Let’s go for six tomorrow! Or, better yet, shut it off, and try again in an hour! Before you know it, you’ll be completing that days workout in its entirety without stopping. And then, 90 days is there and gone!
Make sure you’re checking in with your doctor on a regular basis to be monitored. Your labs can be a great motivator to get moving.
Choose low-impact exercises like working out in water. It is much easier on the joints, especially when standing is an issue.
Get a workout partner. Somebody you trust, and will help push you.
