Answer:

Sorry, I didn't finish...it is supposed to actually be just as good, if not better cardio than running because it works your arms so well and really pumps your blood and gets your heart going.
Pilates also has great exercises for your legs that you can do either sitting or laying down.

Answer:

If you are looking for cardio, there is a cool thing called an arm bike. It is sort of like the pedals o a bike, but for your arms.
