Dose anyone know of any aerobic type exercises that will work my abs, butt and arms?
Try Tae Bo tapes with Billy Blanks, or the latest craze is the dance exercise videos that are suppose to give you a total body work out. Try a Google search
Actually the best low impact exercise routine is swimming. It works all of the major muscle groups while giving you a good cardio workout as well as being a lot of fun.
Power walking while carrying 1 or 2 pound weights tones the whole body without stress.
For starters here are two websites:
Rowing, skiing, and a hand bike. Volleyball. Stacking hay (just had to get that last one in there).
Jump Rope. Any exercise that strengthens the low back strengthens the abs too.
You might want to try Leslie Sansone's "Walk Away the Pounds" DVDs. They combine speed walking with aerobics, and using 2-lb. weights is optional. Instead of regular hand weights I use weighted balls because I don't have to grip them tightly. Before I got those I used canned foods that weighed between 1 and 2 lbs. each.
Honestly though, walking while holding weights works well too. I do like having the option of the DVD on those days I can't walk outdoors due to inclement weather.
