1237562 tn?1360993180 I want to buy new Recumbent Bike with my few friends recently so I am funding more information about this bike for exercise step by step.
Avatar f tn When choosing exercise type,light, moderate or vigorous. Is that based on the exercise itself or how many times a week its done. Please let me know.
11079760 tn?1483389730 I guess that is why I tried a variety of things (yoga poses, core work, light hand weights, stretching) - I just wanted to see how my body would respond to different types of non-strenuous exercise. My legs are starting to join the fatigue party. It is so hard to know how much to push vs. hold back. If I want to increase strength, cardiovascular fitness, and flexibility, I am going to have to get a little uncomfortable. I guess it will be trial & error.
Avatar n tn If it comes to that, either you should try to think of a different exercise or medical regimen. The long term benefits of a good exercise program are too important to give up.
Avatar f tn I have tried putting lotion w/ no purfume or anything in it before I exercise, but it's not working. I have also had my dh spray my legs with water to cool them off, but that isn't working either. I don't want to give this up, but I can't take this itching anymore. I walk and/or my tredmill everyday, sometimes several times a day, so I don't think just getting used to it is the problem. Does anybody have any idea how to make this stop? I will try anything!
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar f tn I can't begin to talk about the benefits of regular exercise and weight lifting! Exercise also helps with constipation, a common complaint among MSers. I'm not going to blame MS for my weight problem. I blame my weight problem firmly and squarely where it belongs - on my intake. I eat too many calories for the amount of calories I burn. Any responsible person who really intends to lose weight needs to look at their intake and think about their activity level, and start there.
1679858 tn?1346768781 I am ok most days, really very few headaches (don't get chiari headaches) so I would love to know what is happening when I exercise and these feeling increase!!! I just keep trying to help myself get stronger only to find myself getting worse. To make matters worse, I feel that my doctors think I am a nutbar by now, and my GP knows nothing about Chiari so he can't answer my questions.
1741471 tn?1407162630 One of the greatest ways of improving these brain chemicals is through exercise. Try this exercise to feel how these chemicals function in less than 10 seconds: From a standing position start clapping and taping as fast as possible. how do you feel? Exactly your brain chemicals are functioning! Exercise improves our brain chemicals. Over hundred studies have shown the incredible benefits of moving.
456073 tn?1206459977 I've been reading this forum with comments from individuals about getting PVCs during exercise and after exercise etc. I've recently been diagnosed with PVCs by my cardiologist, wore a recorder and recorded some "events" that contained runs of PVCs. He wants to start me on a Beta Blocker, but I'm looking perhaps for another way to live with these or cure these before I have to start on a Beta Blocker.
98010 tn?1305903335 It seems like everytime I add exercise to my healthy eating I tend to gain weight instead of lose. After several weeks of trying to be patient and give the exercise program (mostly aerobic walking) a chance, I tend to get frustrated and give up exercising because my goal is to lose weight not gain it. Does this happen to anyone else? Am I not giving exercise enough time to see the benefits? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I can't believe how long it has taken to build up strength, but it has really helped. This exercise has changed my life. I can ride my bike 10 miles at a time and am taking a reform Pilate's class. Even though I am more active, my leg twitches less. You are all in my thoughts. I hope this helps.
Avatar m tn If I set in a chair it makes my legs hurt to have pressure pushing on the back side of my legs so I keep my knees up high. If I need to have a BM it makes my legs hurt terrible then after I us the restroom it is instant pain relief. When I sleep at night my legs hurt so bad it wakes me up. I can get out of bed and walk around for a few minutes the pain goes away then I go back to sleep again.
Avatar n tn It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical... The aches come and go without warning and sometimes it's much worse than other times.
645800 tn?1466864555 For me, riding a bike is my favorite aerobic exercise because it is actually much easier on my legs than running or any other type of cardio. When biking, you are using your legs, but the exercise is very low-impact as compared to running. I find that my legs get a great workout and the distance I am able to ride is very satisfying to me. I also really enjoy being able to feel the wind in my hair ;) I ride a three-speed. For me, three gears are plenty and the bike is pretty low-maintenance.
Avatar f tn Also, what exactly is considered moderate on a stationary bike? My bike is pretty ancient and has a speedometer that runs MPH/RPM. I usually stay around 15-20 MPH, which is about 250-350RPMs.
Avatar f tn Plan in special treats for special personal milestones and try as far as possible not to over-indulge in the treat. After work I sustituted exercise on the exercise bike for some digging over my vegatable plot for about an hour. It was quite good as a total body work out - bending, stretching, squats, and of course exercising the legs and arms doing the digging.
3060903 tn?1398568723 1. Warm up for three minutes 2. Exercise as hard and fast as you can for 30 seconds. You should feel like you couldn't possibly go on another few seconds 3. Recover for 90 seconds 4. Repeat the high intensity exercise and recovery 7 more times Be mindful of your current fitness level and don't overdo it when you first start out.
Avatar n tn I'm just over 66 and get my HR up to 150 doing the peak 8 it's great and only takes 20 minutes Peak 8, for Even Greater Benefits You can perform Peak Fitness with any type of exercise you choose. While having access to a gym or exercise equipment will provide you with a larger variety of options, you don't require either. You can just as easily perform this by walking or running on flat ground.
Avatar f tn Also the weekends are a great time for getting out of the house walking (briskly), running, riding a bike or you could record exercise shows from TV or buy some videos and doing those on weekends. I was taught in school that it takes about 4-5 hours a week of exercise to lose weight and 3 hours a week to keep it off once you reach the goal. Changing eating habits for the better permanently is the way to go as well.
1936411 tn?1333835449 It helps loosen up the stiffness in my leg. I also ride my exercise recumbent bike 20 minutes a day.I also do strenghtening and balance exercises. The Wii fit balance program is fun!
Avatar m tn This past 90 days I had the best diet I could possibly manage and regular exercise, however not quite as much as usual. I am a mountain bike rider, tennis player and hiker, very intense exercise. So much to my surprise my latest A1c came back 5.8. I was expecting it to be much lower. I am at real loss, the endocrinologist I was seeing left our town and the closest is 2 hours away. I did see a new doctor, but I am not scheduled to see her again until May. My previous Dr.
127596 tn?1210926222 I always thought quitting smoking would be one of the last things I would do in my quest to shed some pounds - but this time around, it seemed like the sensible to thing to do. I quit smoking because I bought a bike and realized I couldn't bike very far without gasping and wheezing like my grandmother in the morning before her first Marlboro. If I wanted to lose weight, I thought, I need to be able to bike to more places than 7-11.
163305 tn?1333672171 My legs never bothered me like that. Pregnant like a watermelon, and my legs never bothered me. For walking, just start slow, gradually going further each day. Be sure you have good shoes. his: Wow, you must have a big lawn. Ever think of getting a goat !
476246 tn?1418874514 Water therapy exercise offers many of the same benefits associated with a land-based exercise program, including development of a treatment plan that is carefully tailored to the individual. It minimizes the weight placed on the spine and joints and gently helps build muscle without the harsh resistance of land exercise.
Avatar n tn In an effort for your body to function efficiently, it quickly adapts to your exercise routine. You get the best benefits by alternating your exercise routines, varying your workouts between strength and cardio or increasing the level of difficulty or extending the time of the activity.

Avatar m tn There was no injury or change in activity I can link to it, I was and am in good shape (obviously better before), have never been overweight, eat healthy, exercise almost daily (before the injury- bike, swim, hike, rock climb), don’t smoke, am not stressed out, etc. I just noticed my right knee felt odd one day and figured I tweaked it somehow and it would go away. It just got worse though, and my left knee followed it a month or so later.

211940 tn?1267884866 Q? With MS, should I be exercising? I have gained quite a bit of weight (30 lbs.), since my accident back in July, last year. In previous years, I would exercise, I have an "exercise bike", that I was doing 40 miles in an hour (and burning tons of calories). Then I had foot surgery and was unable to exercise.
