For those that are morbidly obese, exercise such as walking may still be difficult and or uncomfortable; this is when appliances such as walking canes can come in useful. The good news however is that walking burns a lot more calories for those carrying the extra kilos, as they have to use more energy. So weight loss from walking would be higher than to that of somebody with an average or low BMI.
Exercise Ball Workouts
Abdominal exercise equipment found in gyms can be challenging to use for those who carry excess fat around their abdominal.

Fitness balls (make sure you select a burst-resistant ball that has been specifically designed to bear at much as 1020 kilos) can be utilized for abdominal crunches by lying on your back, resting your ankles onto the ball, and ascending upwards using your core with both arms behind your head.
