The most appropriate choices in this case, which every fitness enthusiast will recommend, include lunges, squats and push-ups.  Additionally, one can take advantage of calf raises and bicep curls, which are considered to be light in intensity and possible options for every person. Most of these cardio exercises are comparable to everyday activities in which people typically engage.
