Avatar n tn I wanted to add that if I can't get my heart rate out of the 90's while working out, then I am not getting the cardiovascular benefits of exercise. Right? I feel like it's kind of pointless to exercise at this point. I'm in pretty good shape and not overweight with a BMI of 24.
Avatar n tn I think the open question idea is a good one, but if someone else thinks different then I will stop, but anyway I did something last night that I think can definitely help anyone keep their mind off of drugs. My girlfriend bought me rollerblades last night and we went out rollerblading around 9:30pm last night. It was incredible, it was one of those things that I forgot was so much fun. We had the summer night, cool air, and we were flying up and down the streets......
Avatar n tn It's important to warm up very slowly and not exercise after you eat. After 20 minutes of exercise, your arteries will expand and you will have much more capability. I have a hilly circuit that I do before work and at lunch time. I start out easy, but by the end can walk steeply up hill for about .45 miles without stopping. I don't believe that you can get the same benefit from an indoor machine as you get in the outdoors, walking, hiking, or skiing.
Avatar n tn I AM TRYING TO GET PREGNANT (YES AT 40) AND I DO NOT KNOW IF I AM PREGNANT OR NOT AT THIS TIME OF THE MONTH, BUT CAN I DO ALL THIS KIND OF EXERCISE WHILE I AM PREGNANT, (IN YOUR OPINION, THAT IS)
Avatar n tn It's important to do at least 30 minutes of light cardiovascular exercise each day, but I wouldn't overstress yourself until you are very fit. I walk a hilly 2 mile course before work and before lunch to maintain tone and relieve stress during the week. Although good, walking on the flat doesn't do a lot for you. Going up and down a little gives you a little more of a workout. There are currently only 3 things that raise HDL significantly: 1. Exercise 2. Alcohol 3.
Avatar f tn I just can not do my job due to coordination problems, fatigue, cog issues, etc, etc, and my doctors orders not to drive (other than localy on good days only). I've been on employee paid LTD benefits, which I qualify for by being unable to do 60% of my normal job. After 24 months, I'll need to be unable to do any job anywhere that pays at least 75% of my normal wages in order to qualify......so we'll see what the insurance company pulls out of their hat then.
Avatar n tn Also, I am careful not to hold my breath during exercise, and I avoid isometric exercises (Valsalva maneuver). Lots of people have strokes on the toilet because they are doing the Valsalva maneuver. Another thing I have noticed is how much harder it is to raise my bp now that I am lifting again. I think that this is partly because I am so much stronger that my muscles can handle more work without as much strain.
256349 tn?1189759437 I will continue to do this until I can get to a point of working out again and I may then do something else. I agree diet and exercise alone can work for most. For me it's not an option right now with other health issues I have. I'm lucky to get my kids to school everyday and get out of bed. So please don't judge each of us without knowing us.
