View Full Version : Doing cardio without using legs?

09-22-2004, 04:19 PM
Is there any way to get a good cardio workout without heavily using your legs (e.g. escalator machine, cycling, etc.)?

The reason I ask is because I want to give my legs a chance to recover after my leg day, but continue with my cardio

Any suggestions are welcome, thanks

At my rehab center we had a bicycle for your arms, i hated it but it leaves your legs out.

rowing. It uses the legs but not heavily. I guess if you really wanted you could put some negitive weight on pullups and try that.

this works your legs a little but jump ropping. Also not a good a idea if your calves are sore.

boxing: shadow boxing or heavy bag. Amazing workout that you can limit the amount of leg work on.
