As someone with FA, running and jumping are out of the question. Finding methods of cardio that you can adapt to a use functionally can be difficult. Especially during a time when the gyms are closed. What are some things you have don to keep your heart pumping?
Here are some ways I found cardio that worked for me sitting in the chair or on the floor:
Jumping jacks arm movement- 30-45 seconds
Cross body grabs-30-45 seconds
Crunches w/ legs on couch-30-45 seconds
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
