    Please help with cardio ideas

    What kind of cardio can be done without the legs? My girlfriend cannot use her legs for a while.
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.

    what do u mean by can't use legs.. like cant use legs at all? if she can use them just not put pressure like run try using the bike or maybe swimming if she cant use legs what so ever as long as she doesnt kick haha.

    She can bend her knees about 10 degrees now but will be unable to bend them at all for two months after surgery.

    I've been suggesting swimming and hopefully I'll be able to get her in the pool soon. any other suggestions?

    No, No.
    "If you have a 10-horsepower motor and you subject it to a 12-horsepower load, it will burn out. But when you have a human body that is the equivalent of a 10-horsepower motor and you subject it to a 12-horsepower load, it eventually becomes a 12-horsepower motor."

    i heard one guy did shitloads of situps for his cardio. as said before, another good way to burn fat is sex. the most crucial part i think during a time like this would be having a good diet. my .02$

    For every $1 you donate to the "buy Lude more weight plates foundation", you will help add 1kg to my 1RM.

    some gyms have hand-bike thingies (the Y in my hometown did) that are basically pedals, mounted where you can turn 'em with your hands, with variable resistance

    Can she jump up and down? Jumping rope would be cool..not much bending involved.
