Introduction to Seated Exercises

Exercise is an important part of COVID-19 recovery in order to regain your strength, endurance, flexibility, and ability to fully take part in all aspects of your daily life. Even if you cannot yet tolerate exercise standing up or moving more vigorously, it is still very important to keep yourself as active as possible.

If you find that getting out of a chair or off the couch is challenging, it may be easier right now to watch the world move around you. And if you don’t feel well when you stand up, it makes sense that the safest place for the moment is being parked firmly on your bottom. 

Here’s the thing, though: our bodies are meant to move. It’s how we stay healthy, keep our blood pumping, our bones and muscles strong, and our organs, like our heart, lungs, skin and digestive system working right. The longer we stay sitting, the more at risk we are for other serious illnesses and harder it becomes to spend time upright on our feet.

But right now, that might where you’re at, and that’s okay. We just need to keep you moving any way we can.

So I hope you’ll join me in some basic starter exercises that you can do while sitting in a chair. They will keep you active as best possible until you feel ready to step up to standing exercises.
