I have type 2 diabetes, FMS, CFS, & arthritis and I simply MUST exercise! I use an elliptical machine for cardiovascular. I can't use a treadmill, stationary bike, or walk outside for various reasons. I do well with the elliptical. What I need, and haven't been able to accomplish, is a weight training routine. Where/how do I begin? Several times I've made attempts and just have not been able to find something that works for me. Going to a gym or the Y is out, I need something I can do at home. What about stretching bands or tubes? I need something simple and inexpensive. What about Pilates? I know it should be done every other day to allow the muscles to rest and repair. What else do I need to know? Thanks in advance for any help, it will be much appreciated!
