Warm Ups for Bariatric Patients

Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics, and today I’m going to show you some exercises that you can do from home and about two weeks postop. We’re going to start with some warmups. The first warmups are just some seated arm swings. So get those arms moving. Get that blood circulation going. Do this for about maybe 30 seconds one way and then 30 seconds the other way. There you go, awesome Kristen, thank you. Let’s do some seated waist twists. So hands on hips, tummy in, there we go. Do this for about 30 seconds. Let’s get everything warmed up, awesome, good job, and some seated marching. There we go, hands on hips, knees nice and high, fantastic, way to got, for about 30 seconds. That should be our warmup.
