Non-Pilates Osteoporosis Workout on YouTube

I was searching for tubing workouts on YouTube and came across a playlist posted by Carol Michaels Fitness using tubing, a loop and a flat band for an osteoporosis-safe workout. This is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...DHyhhIbcv0McDA

This morning I did the first six segments in the playlist, which gave me a pretty nice workout just shy of 45 minutes long (I didn't do the last three bonus segments about exercising in bed). Many of the moves are things I had to do in physical therapy last summer and that I'm supposed to still be doing on my own. It was so nice to find them laid out in a video I could follow along with! It was also really nice not to have to modify any moves (most videos contain things I'm not supposed to do anymore).

I thought the instruction and the video production quality were both very good, especially for a free workout. I've bookmarked the playlist so I can use it again.

If anyone else is looking for an osteoporosis-safe workout, check it out.

ETA - A couple of the upper body exercises require the tubing to be anchored, so you'll need a door attachment or something sturdy to loop the band around.

Thanks for the reminder! I have a couple of Carol Michaels' workouts that I downloaded from Amazon Prime.

I am not a Pilates fan, so it it nice to have something else.

I forgot about them, LOL!

I am not a pilates fan either and your mention that she had downloads available on Amazon spurred me to go take a look. It turns out she has 4 workouts there. All four are available on DVD and two can be purchased as streaming. I ordered the stability ball one, which appears to only be available on DVD, and rented the two streaming workouts for 48 hours to check them out. Thanks for the heads up!
