Re: Best Exercise to Do Without Hurting Yourself
Walking is a real goody. Also, for an over all body execiser, have you tried one of those gigantic exercise balls? They work REALLY great, and you can be real gentle on it or go totally aerobic as your strength builds. I, too, have neck disc problems, as well as other spinal probs, and this has worked wonders for me. It has even gotten me "fit" enough to move up to using a Total Gym, which I LOVE! However, I ALWAYS get too carried away with the Total Gym, pull something, and have to start at ground zero again with the ball. But, the ball brings me back in no time.
There are soooooooo many exercises you can do with it. Even just sitting on it and kind of bouncing, using your legs, while watching tv is a great starter. It's also good as a chair on the computer. Forces one to sit up straight, and helps maintain balance.
