Exercise bike repair

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise bike repair


Avatar m tn Mountain biking is associated with a lot of falls. I do all my bike riding in spinning classes or an exercise bicycle. Most surgeons want you avoid sports like boxing, wrestlying, insiste on eye protection for racquet sports, avoid violent head whipping like roller coasters, amusement type rides. Remember most retinal detachments are NOT due to trauma but due the vitreous pulling on the retina, or thinned areas of the retina from high myopia, lattice or post cataract surgery.
Avatar f tn Hi there I have a magnetic resistance exercise bike, but the maximum resistance just isn't enough for me. I looked into adding more magnets, but this doesn't seem possible on my machine. I was wondering if I could add some weight to the pedals (or to the bars that connect the pedals to the fly wheel) in order to get more resistance?

476246 tn?1418874514 I ran into my water aerobics instructor while I was there. I'll do the exercise classes on Saturdays with her. Rode my bike about 6 miles yesterday. Remarkably, my joints can handle the riding well. My muscles though, OMG! Oh, the BURN! It's been this way since tx ended. I can't bend or squat to get things out of lower cabinets. Well, I can. I can get down. Just can't get back up again. I feel like a bad disco song. Thank you for this thread.
Avatar n tn Do you have a bike? If you do then you can convert your own outdoor bike into an indoor exercise machine easily and inexpensively with an indoor trainer or roller. Which one is best for you depends on your preferences, goals and fitness experience. To convert your bike to an indoor machine using a trainer, you affix your back wheel into an elevated mount and your front wheel rests on a plastic block.
Avatar m tn I get to the cafe stop, half way on a 45 mile Club run, stop for a coffee (3 sugars) and bit of cake. When back on the bike, only after about 3-5 miles of riding, I find myself getting a bit bonky. Soon as I start feeling this I get out the jelly babies and neck some more drink (sugary drink). I have a hunch that when my body stops any exercise and then starts to drink sweet coffee and eating cake, this sends up my Insulin.
Avatar n tn Huge amount of aerobic exercise. I began to notice that after exercise my pulse rate would remain elevated for up to 12 hours. Several hours after exercise stopped it would be 125 and regular coming down gradually in 8-12 hours. The rate also rises now after meals to about 110. I developed severe anxiety over this and stopped exercising. An echo shows what the doctor calls "very mild" pulmonary and aortic insufficiency. A holter showed nothing odd.
Avatar n tn I hope Fenton's repair can repair my sex life! It's hard to be in a relationship and not feel that closeness that comes from making love. Instead when you have this condition you feel guilt and have sex anyways which leads to pain. And feelings of guilt for the male, if you do indeed tell him that, this time it hurt. Anyways, good luck to all the ladies out there who are going get this done. And for the ladies who are wondering if this is for them then what are you waiting for?
Avatar f tn I just posted a question regarding exercise and PVC's. I was afraid to exercise when I first started experiencing PVC's which was almost 2 years ago. I was an avid runner and cycler but stopped cold turkey once this happened. Now I am off my meds and exercising again and I really enjoy it. However, I had a pvc today while working out and it scared me. But I continued, just at a slower pace. I feel like I am handicapped in all honesty.
Avatar f tn Absolutely! Exercise makes a HUGE difference to my moods. If I don't exercise for 2 days, I'm totally grumpy. It's difficult to get started when I'm down. But I try not to think about how much I don't feel like it, how cold it is, or whatever other excuse - and rather 'think Nike' and JUST DO IT! I can even handle certain annoying people after exercise. And I think I blend in better socially after a good workout.
Avatar f tn I had the second surgery to repair the leak in April and did not return to work until July. It is not the end of November and from being inactive for so long I am very out of shape. I cannot even make a flight of stairs without being winded. I started working out this past week. A little cardio and some crunches and weights. I started very slow and am being very careful of what positions I use and such. I worked our all last week.
Avatar n tn I am on Lisinopril and Atenolol to maintain low blood pressure (110/60) and pulse (55-60), and 81 mg Aspirin, as well as 40 mg Lovastatin to keep cholesterol at 160 (my HDL is 55-60). I would like to maintain fitness with an exercise routine, and have been advised by dfoctors in the past to avoid anything that would raise my pulse over 100 or put any strain or increased pressure within my chest davity.
Avatar n tn I have researched online and it appears that a posterior repair is easier than an anterior repair, and that the anterior repair requires a skilled surgeon with more technical skills.
Avatar m tn I've read that hypothyroidism can cause exercise intolerance. I have been very ill since exposure to some toxic pesticides. Part of the poisoning is that I became hypothyroid. I used to be a keen athlete cycling many miles a week and competing often. Now I am unable to do any exercise. I suffer from pain in my joints, particularly my knees. If I try and do any level of exercise, I suffer injuries and weakness afterwards which take ages to heal (some haven't healed at all).
Avatar m tn They will tell her the best diet, the best way to stay as healthy as possible including exercise, medications that can prevent life threatening complications of advanced cirrhosis, so many things that I could never say. Advanced liver disease is a very complicated illness. But we can learn about it and how we can best live with it. That is what hepatologists do. They can also answer all your questions so you understand what is happening to a person’s body and mind as they live with the disease.
1894048 tn?1321248646 He has allowed me to do more exercise and ride my bike ( my big goal!). When I try to pedal down with the left foot/leg to get on my bike, there is absolutely no power, so I had to change to my right foot and my husband had me to use 'regular' pedals instead of the 'clip in ones'. I think this a strength issue, because my knee buckles a lot still too. What do you think about all this? How often does this happen, I'm just kind of stunned by the whole process!
Avatar m tn I used to exercise regularly. I would wake up every weekday at 6am, bike to the gym, and exercise for about an hour before work. I would usually jog or do some other cardio for 20-30 minutes, then do weight training for the rest of the hour. I had help from a personal trainer, so I knew what I was doing. I felt great, and I was in the best shape of my life. I kept this up for about 3 years, before something strange happened: I would wake up around 2 or 3am, unable to fall back asleep.
80575 tn?1207135964 For most people, healthy lifestyle choices, such as like eating nutritious meals and a regular exercise routine can help reverse these conditions and even improve or compensate for the overall negative impact of these conditions on HCV disease progression and treatment outcome. Exercise has been found to be one of the most important components of staying healthy and living well with hepatitis C.
Avatar m tn I'm a male 54 yrs old and had surgery to repair tricuspid valve in Nov 2014 at Cleveland Clinic. Had severe tricuspid regurgitation (4+). Heart cath before surgery in Sept. 2014 showed normal heart with normal pulmonary artery and right ventricle pressures. TEE on the same day noted volume overload. TTE echocardiogram performed 4 days postop indicated RVSP of 42 mm hg and another echocardiogram 2.5 months postop (I had atrial flutter) showed similar pressure.
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 Hello my name is Tyler. I had surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon on April 15 and with the doctors permission have been riding a bike with my walking boot on. Last night i had a low speed crash on the bike and fell on my left leg the one I had surgery on. I did not hear a pop and apart from some immediate pain from the shock of my boot hitting the ground had no pain afterward.
Avatar f tn Five weeks earlier, I had arthroscopic knee surgery and really needed to get back on the exercise bike to help with that therapy. I started back at the gym this week working on the bike. I'm now having pains in the lower right side of my belly. When I cough or sneeze it now feels like someone is poking me with a sharp stick. Bladder is still high and dry, but I'm not fond of the sharp stick feeling. I'm going to skip the gym for a few days and see if it clears up.
Avatar m tn He goes by a thorough stethoscope etc exam. Four months after the test I run/walk or bike one hour five miles six days a week breathing deep and easy. Should I take some further tests? I'm on 150 propafenone once a day and 6.25 Coreg. Age 81 This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/511066'>No PVC post exercise</a>.
Avatar f tn Cardiovascular exercise: 3--5 days/wk for 30-60 minutes; Resistance training exercise: 2--3 days/wk focusing on all major muscle groups at least 1x per week, and not working the same major muscle group 2 days in a row. Also, if you're taking any medications, I would do some research. In my own experience, I have found that certain medications have been responsible for otherwise unexplained weight gain (even when my dr's swore they would not have any effect on weight).
Avatar m tn I ride long (145klm) mountain bike rides; for instance to the summit of Mt Saint Helen's and train by running bleachers at a local stadium. The health and vitality I feel through my exercise regiment has made me feel like I've discovered a "fountain of youth" and I've become addicted to it. What do I need to avoid now?
Avatar m tn The inflammation starts and stops exactly where the incission begins and ends. I have resumed heavy exercise using the stationary bike and elliptical machine (no treadmill). Any thoughts on what is causing the tendon to remain inflammed? Or is it something else?
Avatar m tn Muscle building and repair? The perfect post-weight training repast has about 400 calories, with 20 to 30 grams of protein (to build new muscle) and 50 to 65 grams of carbohydrates (to repair old muscle). Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or a small bowl of pasta with meat sauce fits that formula.
Avatar n tn I am absolutely, taking it easy. Rode the exercise bike as my first exercise in a month the other day. Definitely no pounding. Still haven't talked to my doctor. I asked him if he'd be around to call me & explain the results before the holiday (got the MRI the Tuesday before Christmas) and after repeated calls, I was only able to get his assistant to email me the MRI results.
