Find a weekly challenge to set a customized goal! It might just be to start walking and build up each day for the week. Set a goal that is realistic for you.
The picture below is of a plank. You can modify it to start on your knees or even just a wall push-up position. Clients ask “how long should I go.” A plank is for your core so you should feel the tension from quads, gluts, hamstrings, or abs. When your body starts to compensate and you get in your neck, shoulders, or low back your done. So just work on building the endurance over compensating for a longer time.
Try a Fitbit or some other training device to keep you on track and get your heart rate in a target zone throughout the day. You can get weekly updates, set goals, and keep yourself accountable. I like the feature to keep track of my fluid intake for the day.
I think it is good to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to some new exercises or cardiovascular goals.
If you have questions let me know and I can try and assist you through email or even some video suggestions through Zoom.
