|Will I get any benefits by exercising for only a few minutes at a time, 3-5 times a day? Until I can hold my body position correctly, (like holding in your belly button & breathing properly), should I focus on that instead of the NUMBER of reps? Here is some info to help understand why and what I've been trying to do. Please read and help!
I've had severe health issues and almost completely bed ridden for almost 2 years. Per doctors, I'm starting getting back on my feet and doctors have told me to start exercising. My endurance and strength are obviously very, very poor. I am a home bound individual and my neighborhood is not good to walk in. Being sedatary and various medicines I had been on caused large weight gain. I do have some exercise equipment in my home (exercise room), a good stair stepper and the ab glider. My problem and question is I can only do a few repititions, (I try to do increments of 15). I am finding it difficult to hold the correct form (especially my core, sucking my belly button in towards my spine AND HOLDING IT IN, as well as breathing properly). After a few reps of 15, I have to stop and my heart rate is at 150. So I stop and then do reps again, at least 3 times a day, sometimes up to 5 times a day, 5 or 6 days a week. I'm alone in this (no one to help me). Will I get any benefits by exercising for only a few minutes at a time, 3-5 times a day? Until I can hold my body position correctly, (like holding in your belly button), should I focus on that instead of the NUMBER of reps? Please, please help. I want to be able to go out in public and not get dizzy walking into a building.
