Common Questions and Answers about Exercise bike for men


Avatar n tn Also heart rate is one of the most important factors for losing weight. You can google target heart charts for your age.
Avatar n tn I have been rideing a exercise bike daily for about a month Had my yearly physical and was told my psa sore was 6 last year it was3 I am a 73 year old black man should I retake the test or have a biopsy ?
Avatar n tn I have moderated my exercise routine somewhat favoring longer bike rides where my pulse may average 130 or 140 instead of hard runs that put it up to 170. I have also retired, partially because the opportunity presented itself but mostly because I think stress and my over-reaction to stress may be a significant player in my disease. Staying healthy is now "Job One". I enjoyed your comments and hope you continue to have good health.
Avatar f tn Going from zero exercise to riding 100 miles on a bike, would exhaust most anyone. Exercise, like everything else, should be done in moderation and it's best to start off slowly and increase gradually in order to let your body get used to it. You may need an increase in medication at some point, but I don't think it will be because of the exercise.
Avatar n tn I, too, was a fainter when I was a teenager and early twenties. After riding bike, I would stop the bike and faint. It turns out that I have an adrenal problem where exercise, licorce, caffeine brings my heart rate up extremely fast at a fast rate. I have not been on a bike in 24 years now and cannot run and have to be careful not to walk too fast. The cardiologist told me that it will not shorten my lifespan and not to worry about it.
Avatar n tn bench press for chest, shoulder press for shoulders, curls and reverse curls for upper arms, upright rows/lat pull-downs for back, leg press/extension for legs, crunches/leg lifts for abs. I did this six days a week, alternating which cardio machine I used and which 2 weight exercises I did. Well I've come a long way in just a few months - I'm up to 45 minutes of hard cardio per day, with another half hour of weights afterwards... each week I add a few pounds to each exercise...
Avatar m tn 5 or less in men and 12.0 or less in women. The anemia reported in clinical trials for HCV drugs as an adverse effect (side effect) was less that 10.0 in men and women. I think what I am reading is that in trials if a patient's hemoglobin was more than 10.0 it was not reported as an AE.
Avatar n tn Doctor, Please forgive me for spouting heresy, but this has been a concern of mine for some time. Three years ago at age 54 I was found to have an LAD blockage that was successfully bypassed. This was almost unbelievable to anyone knowing me as I had been a competitive runner/cyclist/triathalete for 30 years. I had none of the normal cardiac risk factors such as smoking, weight, cholesterol (LDL 130, HDL 60, TG 60), BP, etc. Later testing showed I was high in homocysteine.
Avatar n tn surgery, I became aware of a tendency for my head and face to sweat while doing only moderate levels of exercise. I initially attributed it to one of my meds, Altace and Lipitor, but I have been on and off of these over the last three years and the tendency persists. This sweating occurs even in quite cold weather while running when sweating at all seems inappropriate. I am concerned about the heart connection since excessive sweating is often a sign of an MI.
Avatar n tn Maybe just walking for cardio exercise. Also, stay away from caffiene. Oh, and make sure you don't get dehydrated, that will cause the heart rate to go up too. I am 38 yr old female and my heart rate sometimes goes to 200+bpm during exercise. I also get pain when it's that high. Dr. put me on a beta blocker to slow the heart rate down. Check with your doctor about what might help you. Good luck!
1709431 tn?1308073112 Too much iron has been linked to a greater risk of heart disease in men. Get this essential mineral in natural doses from real foods.) Vitamin D is essential for preserving metabolism-revving muscle tissue. Unfortunately, researchers estimate that a measly 20 percent of Americans take in enough through their diet. Get 90 percent of your recommended daily value (400 IU) in a 3.5-ounce serving of salmon. Other good sources: tuna, fortified milk and cereals, and eggs.
Avatar f tn It seems the only way to prevent this is by destroying the oil glands (accutane). For ladies out there you might want to try cyclosporine. It's not for men sadly because it drops your testosterone. I've done everything who has this problem has done. Wash right after working out, changed diet, cut out dairy, wash face, change pillow sheets, routine acne system (Clinique), blah blah. I've come to realize none of that matters. For some reason this didn't happen 10yrs ago, only in the past year.
Avatar m tn I had the same condition as you... same age. I run - you bike... Prior to running the freqency for me was 1/month... every other (not much). My Valsalva was to squat and control my breathing. Once I started running, it was twice a week (or more), and the episodes were becoming uncontrollable. Keep an eye on it. I tend to doubt it will get worse as the condition is congenital, but exascerbated by the maturation process (and activity). That being said, I think your doc gave you good advice.

Avatar f tn I am just curious if anybody knows whether or not doing high intensity cardiovascular exercise is good or bad when you have Hep C. For any newbies who don't know my history...., I am NOT SVR and I am currently NOT treating. I have done in the past, 10 different tries at treatment w/o obtaining viral clearance. Currently, I've been off of treatment for the past 7 mon. My last doctor's advice to me when I had my final follow-up appt.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn If you're a woman, start with 100 pounds for the first 5 feet in height, and add 5 pounds for every extra inch. For men, it's 106 pounds for 5 feet in height, plus 6 pounds for every additional inch. However, if your ideal weight is less than 120 pounds, don't eat less than 82 g of protein daily. # 2 Ideal Weight (in lb) ÷ 2.2 = Ideal Weight (in kg) # 3 Ideal Weight (in kg) × 1.
Avatar m tn OK so what does this have to do with pain? One of my good friends is a doula and she says that the women who use the breathing techniques that are core to the program swear by them. (not the swearing during labor!HA!). The more that they had practiced (often with the husbands) the more effective was the pain relief and the relaxation of the muscular tension!!
177275 tn?1511758844 Nevertheless, daily and less strenuous exercise remains one of the most important facets of getting and staying healthy. Regular exercise and high levels of physical fitness are linked to lower risks for cardiovascular diseases and improved life expectancy. Four decades ago Thomas Bassler, MD, an American physician, reasoned that if some exercise was good more had to be better, and famously hypothesized that marathon running confers immunity against coronary plaque buildup and heart attacks.

244602 tn?1215979228 don't know if they ever checked my electrolytes, and I'd been riding my bike on a hot day when this happened. For the rest of the day I kept getting leg cramps. Finally they did a chest X ray because I noticed that the protocol taped to the cabinet called for one, but the point was only to make sure I didn't have a lung problem and my heart was the correct size. I was specifically there on account of persisting chest pain, weakness and upset stomach.
Avatar n tn I think maybe because most of the pressure is put onto the legs, not the back and bottom. I usually sit on an exercise ball in my office, I have done it for years--but if you have never sat on one, you might not want to try it for the first time with your broken tailbone, just because I would hate to hear that you fell off trying! Good luck--I feel like I'm still a long ways in recovery, but glad it happened to me not my elder mother-in-law-- it happen on a faulty step.
Avatar m tn I wonder if they would have looked for a thyroid issue if things could have been different for him. I should try to find the study I read while back of trying thyroid medication with bipolar and schizophrenia or schizoaffective. But, I wonder if in those studies if they actually ran the Free T tests instead of just a TSH. The reason I was reading is because my sister has schizoaffective diagnosed at the age of 30-which seems odd to me. I wish they would look at other issues.
Avatar n tn I am also taking percocet for the horrible panic episodes that I have because that seems to work as well for me. I think I know why this works for some people. In an article that I read a couple of years ago,(unfortunatly I lost it) they said that the brain produces it's own morphine. Some people's brain are actually deprived of that which is why we need opiates to feel normal and balanced. If I find this article again I will post it.
Avatar n tn I'm in a high stress job, and my life is no fun anymore as I'm afraid to exercise (jog, ride my bike etc) outside alone. I figure at the gym someone could help me. I'm trying to fight through it. I'm in a field where I understand the thought process of physicans, and frankly I understand why they don't order more tests. My BP is slightly high, my Cholesterol is slightly high.
132578 tn?1189759437 I have been in tx for 14weeks and was hoping to keep my exercise program going but I just dont have the energy for it and when I force the exercise program in during tx it seeems I pay for it the next day with no energy.I am now trying to work what exercise I can into my daily routine at work.All my best to you and your recovery.
Avatar n tn not sitting for long periods or riding a bike, and rubbing the area upwards.
612749 tn?1221078525 He has also started this exercise regimen where he rides his bike 30 miles 4x a week. Today he went for his bike ride, w/ his water bottle and he felt dizzy. He pulled over and got off his bike and felt like he was spinning. He ended up blacking out and fainting. Luckily I was driving down the road and was able to pick him and his bike up. He felt lightheaded for awhile and within a 1/2 hr he was fine. He didn't want to go to the hospital. He thinks that it is low sugar.
Avatar f tn I am just amazed this morning, I have lost more weight and am tipping the scales at 10 stone 10lbs (150lbs). Yesterday I did 45 minutes on the exercise bike and about 30 to 40 minutes mowing the lawn so this may have contributed to the loss. I am also wondering whether it may also be something to do with the fact that I am menopausal - who knows?
