What do you do when it is -30F and you cannot get outside?
I have severely bad joints and back (many surgeries). Swimming seems to be the only thing I can do consistently. But when the cold weather hits then what? I am a displaced worker, so I don't have money to join a gym. I'm looking for FREE things to do that wont strain the joints or back.
UPDATE: maybe I need to be clearer? When I say: "bad joints and back (many surgeries)," I'm saying I cannot do things that have a bunch of strain on the joints and back. I've also had my right foot totally reconstructed and walking is a very difficult and straining activity. Biking is hard on the knees and back!
This is why I swim because it is a very low impact thing that can bring up the heart rate. If I could move to a warmer climate where I could swim all the time, I would!
Thanks mamaoak for the chair exersises, I've looked some up on the web but if you have something special, let me know.
