Hi all, I am hoping suggestions for low impact cardio intervals that will still be effective and get my heart rate on going please?
I enjoy doing cardio intervals as part of my home dvd workouts (30 day shred, ripped in 30)
However, I have arthritis in my 1st MTP joint (big toe joint) which has got steadily worse and is now pretty painful. It means that I can't do most of the high impact cardio intervals in the dvds because they hurt too much, so I am looking for some suggestions for other exercises I can sub in just for the 2 min cardio intervals.
I can't do high impact - anything with bouncing or jumps, even running on the spot or high knees makes me sore.
I also cannot do anything where the weight is on toes/ball of foot, so no pushups/burpees/mountain climbers/plank jacks.
Does anyone have any suggestions for 2 min cardio intervals that will get my heart pumping but won't hurt my foot? I have no equipment except a set of hand weights and a stretchy band thing. So far the only thing I can think of is punches and kicks.
Thanks so much in advance to anyone who can help
