Power Walk 2 Miles Circuit Style is another fun cardio walk with some total body conditioning work from AngieFitnessTV. It is done circuit fashion; you walk a mile, do some conditioning work (while still marching), walk another mile then do some more conditioning work (while still marching). In this one Angie even puts together step combos during the cardio walk portions. She also had some issues with a pet during the second mile and there is some restarts of one of the combos. Kind of funny. As long as you continue marching in place it shouldn’t cause you any issues since it doesn’t last that long. I have noticed in some of Angie’s other workouts she will tell you that you will do something one more time then you do it 2 or 3 or 4 more times. She does that a lot more than usual in this workout. So if she says one more time–don’t believe her! (o:
To increase the intensity of this workout I wore an 8 pound weighted vest, a 10 pound weighted belt and 2.5 pound ankle weights (5 pounds total). Since I can only use one arm (left shoulder surgery), I also wore a 1 pound weighted glove on my right hand and only did the conditioning moves with my right arm. Angie uses light weights for this workout but you can get more out of it if you lift heavier dumbbells. Since I am not using this workout as my actual strength work I just used the same dumbbells as Angie did. I got a great cardio walk. According to my FitBit I burned 400 calories and walked 4943 steps. Another fun workout from Angie!
Power Walk 2 Miles Circuit Style is 56 minutes; 1:15 minute intro; 5 minute warm up and 4:30 minute stretch. Equipment: dumbbells. I also wore a weighted vest, a weighted belt, ankle weights and a weighted glove to increase intensity. The structure of this workout is 23 minutes of cardio walking (including the warm up) followed by upper body conditioning with light dumbbells (Angie recommends 1-4 pound dumbbells, she is using 3 pound hand weights) while still marching in place. This is followed by another 16 minutes of cardio walking. The workout ends with total body conditioning (Angie is using 5 pound dumbbells). I am not breaking down the cardio walk portion but it is made up of your basic march variations, mamba, cha-cha-cha, step out wide then back in, alternating side taps, alternating knee raises, and hamstring curls. She puts these moves together in combos which are actually pretty fun. The second mile is done at a brisker pace and is more intense than the first mile.
Upper Body Walk:
- Alternating high cross punches on a diagonal while also lunging out to opposite side that you are punching; changes to alternating front punches
- Hammer curl while marching in places; add an overhead press (hammer curls to overhead press)
- Straight arm front raise, when arms are shoulder level open them out to side into a T then lower DBs to sides
- Repeat #1 & 2
- Hold arms/DBs in goal post and do chest flys bringing elbows/DBs together in front of you
- Overhead tricep extensions (still marching in place)
- Upright row
Total Body Strength:
- Step out squat, alternate sides; changes to stationary squats
- Squat with knee raise, alternate sides
- Stationary pulse lunges; changes to alternating lunges with overhead press while pulsing 3x
- Balance on one leg and do double arm hammer curls while doing hamstring curls with other leg
- Repeat hamstring curl on other leg but arms do reverse curls
- Squat with straight leg side raise at top of squat, alternate legs, while also doing upright rows
- Rear delt flys
- Alternating overhead press while standing on tiptoes

Hey, glad to see you are doing well in your recovery. Since I have a rebounder now I have been on the hunt for workouts. I found this one on YT. She seems pretty good. I plan on trying one of hers this week.

I know Arnita! She does a lot of Bellicon workouts and I subscribe to Bellicon’s streaming workout channel. She’s great and very impressive. I think she is in her 50s and looks amazing!
I am dying to get back to my rebounder! I told my PT about it and he tells me every session to stay off the rebounder until he gives me the okay. )o: He even told me today before I left–No Rebounding.
p.s. instead of a link, a random workout displayed above from the playlist….
perhaps if I use quotes that will help
Hey Jen. I wonder if any of these workouts would be appropriate for you? The playlist is titled ‘limited mobility’ and they are led by Kym Nonstop. The workouts do seem to be designed for people who have more limited mobility than you do right now (just one of your arms is affected) but maybe it would be worth a look.
I discovered Kym Nonstop from a Mike Donavanik workout DVD called something like Xtreme Bodyweight Blast. There are 3 workouts on this DVD and Kim leads the ab workout and she has an awesome personality and I liked the exercises. (I wasn’t crazy about the 2 workouts that Mike led, but that’s okay, I got this DVD at a deep discount and the ab workout was worth the price.)
I checked her out and it seems like a lot of them are seated workouts which I am not interested in. The legs work great! But thanks for thinking of me!
