Since I can't do that without the help of a walker to keep from falling - this is not for me.

I find it hard to hang on to a walker and life bar bells at the same time! LOL
If you have limited mobility in your legs, you could focus on upper body strength training, such as shoulder presses, bicep curls, and triceps extensions. Resistance bands can be attached to furniture or a doorknob and used for pull-downs, shoulder rotations, and arm and leg-extensions.

You could perhaps use the walker to do squats by holding on to it while standing up from a chair and then sitting back down again.

Alternatively, if you have access to a gym, make use of exercise machines that focus on the lower body, such as the leg press,
