Just to put it out there, By no means am I a personal trainer or a dietitian. I solely base my recommendation on what has worked for me. I am a 31 year old male. I have been weight lifting since the age of 17.
Since my diagnosis my exercise regimen has taken a bit of a back seat because. I find I am not in mental state to exercise (anyone else have this problem?) Because I have been lacking in my weight training and am off what was once my regular healthy diet (transitioning over to OMS diet) I have dropped 15lbs. I ask myself everyday Is this the lack of motivation part of the disease or just my brain talking to my body and saying feel sorry for me?
What we all need from time to time in life is a good dose of motivation. Maybe i need to embrace my new life style, but I know I am on the journey to find my motivation again.
Hpebbles2, what I can say is this. If your going to exercise do what you can and do it to the best of your ability. Nobody knows your body better than yourself and YOU know your limit(s).
In my opinion, here a some good exercises for beginners and or people with decreased mobility.
Navigate around the page, if you already haven't, and you will find different exercises that you may be able to perform. They have video tutorials as well. https://beta.mssociety.ca/living-with-m ... l-activity

Like Jack Osborne says "I dont live with MS, MS lives with me." And remember, the only bad work out is the one you didn't do.
Good luck and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I will answer them to the best of my ability.
