Common Questions and Answers about Best ab exercise machine crunches


266539 tn?1281405752 3 minutes fast paced walk, 4 minutes jumping rope (20 seconds straight with 10 second intervals of rest), then running 3 minutes, then 3 minutes on the eliptical machine (you can substitute that for 3 minutes of continuous ab crunches) then back to 4 minutes of jumping rope. That in itself is 20 minutes. Since you are constantly switching your exercise you very rarely get bored of it and trust me when I tell you that you will be worn out! Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I agree, the best thing is a treadmill and a elyptical machine. I get People magazine and I won't let myself read it unless I'm exercising on my treadmill. It has been a great motivator! I also TiVo some shows and watch them when I exercise.
8793709 tn?1409597660 I would suggest not lifting heavy anymore and you can do core strengthening (planks) but cut out ab work (ab machine, crunches)
Avatar f tn The abs engage, and at the same time get stronger and more defined. Doing ab exercises is the best way to sculpt the six-pack. While the rectus abdominus is the muscle that forms the washboard look, you don't want to ignore the other muscles, especially the internal and external obliques, which are used in rotation. The top two exercises for both rectus abdominus and the obliques, are the bicycle and captain's chair.
1123420 tn?1350564758 They are right skin doesn't go away from exercise, it's skin. Fat goes away from exercise. If our skin went away from exercise we would all be in trouble and exercise would be dangerous. You can tone the muscle under the skin which may change the appearance but only a tummy tuck really would get rid of that excess skin which you said you weren't interested in. I can't blame you, apparently it's really painful.
Avatar n tn You can buy a stationary bike or elliptical machine for the home. You can do yoga, pilates, calisthenics, push ups, crunches of an incredible variety. So given you can do so much at home, the question would be, what is it you're trying to accomplish. You can also buy a ton of videos out there that have home exercise programs on them.
Avatar n tn It first came on in JAN2009, one year ago. I pulled my ab muscle when I started back on an exercise regimen. I do have a child, but that was 1 year, 3 months prior to this pull injury. I rested this muscle for months. In July2009, I started back on my fitness goals. While I could feel strain in that upper ab, I would back off if I felt even the slightest pulling or twinge. Over three months from that point, I strengthened my abs to where I was doing unbelievable ab exercises.
Avatar n tn Regardless of whether you perform exercise indoors or out, you should drink sufficient water when you exercise. The recommendation is 10 glasses a day for adults and taking drinks every 15-20 minutes during workouts. Sports drinks and juices can replace lost nutrients during exercise. Some sports supplements are known to cause headaches. If you currently use supplements, try cycling out one thing at a time to see if something you are taking is causing the headaches.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the definition, the chiro is who gave me the diagnosis of Facet Syndrome, gave me some literature on the syndrome and wanted me to continue with office visits, stretching procedures, etc. To be honest, after a few visits insurance stopped paying and I didnt see any results for the pain. I asked about pain meds and chiro explained that he was not of authority to write prec's(?) I just wish I could find something to stop the pain.
Avatar n tn Unless the weight you carry is causing you life threatening problems - then and only then should you consider risks - I would recommend the old favourite - balanced diet, smaller portions - eating frequent small meals and exercise. This way you can change your lifestyle for the better without grasping for quick fix solutions which ultimately end up making you pile the weight on later on!
Avatar n tn - In terms of treatment, I've seen two orthopedic surgeons, two chiropractors, PT clinic, exercise physiologists. I get a lot of assumptions that I'm talking about a lower back problem/sciatica which is complete wrong. I did have sciatica which a little bit of PT cleared up. - I've been on NSAIDs (ibuprofen and naproxen), muscle relaxers, antibiotics, neurontin, percocet, vicodin.
1647691 tn?1363727302 It makes sense doing the testing and waiting until before they freeze to decide which ones are the best. Out of the three blast we got this last time around, the best one wasn't one of the two they transferred, it actually ended up being the one they froze. Go figure. So now we have to hope it survives the thawing process and is a strong, sticky one. We're going to be trying on our own during our break through July and Aug, and then we'll go back for our FET in Sep.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had mine for two years and took it out only because my BF and I are trying to have a baby. The Mirena was the best birth control I ever had in my life! This is also true of several of my friends. You can technically conceive immediately after the removal, but it may take a little longer than that. Much less time than w/the pill, though. Hang in there.
1294995 tn?1330666336 Oh I like the new post :) owl I just got chills when I read your last line :). It will be our time soon. I think we get so wrapped up in getting our bfp right away and get so down when it doesn't happen. But things are working for us all. We are all getting regulated which is huge. My first cycle I did O which was huge. And eventhough last month was a bust I did get a lh surge which is something. And I think most people we have seen get their bfp had been on clomid for a few months.
Avatar n tn It always seems to happen at night. I've found the best way to avoid passing out is to stay in bed with my head down and my knees bent under me until the sweating and "burning up" part passes and then I am able to make it to the toilet after that. I don't know what triggers these episodes other than the fact that I usually haven't eaten very well that day (i.e lots of fatty foods etc.) I never thought about the possibility that it was caused by constipation.
