Avatar f tn Thanks for sharing ladies. I was walking/jogging recently and plan to continue. I also have a stationary bike and am used to doing weights and elipiticalat the gym. Good luck going forward!
1159737 tn?1286520857 Working out is what set me off even more with the Chiari. Found myself getting so upset over attempting a workout routine. For me exercise is a stress relief so when I lossed that, I had enough! I've had the surgery and looking forward to getting back to it. However I'm still nervous to do any straining....ever! So it's something I plan to ask the surgeon.
29837 tn?1414538248 Whenever I finally treat again, I plan to continue to do some exercise, but not to the same intensity that I do now. I will definitely need to slow down on the cardio due to the lack of oxygenation from the anemia. But, I can still do the treadmill, just at a slower speed and stationary bike, slower speed. On the nautilus equipment that I would do at the gym, I'd cut back from 3 sets of 12 reps to like 2 sets of 8 reps and drop some of the amount of weight, too.
Avatar f tn Pick things you'll do everyday. It's hard for me to exercise alone but you may have the discipline to work out with a DVD. Oh. Bike riding too. Do you like sports like tennis or racketball? As for what you eat. Always choose color over white. That means dark veggies. Fruits. Lean protein. Forget sugar. White bread. Rice. Pasta. Potatoes. Watch your portion control too. 5 tiny meals instead of 3 big meals boosts your metabolic rate. Good luck. Keep us posted on your progress.
Avatar f tn I would like some more ideas on exercises and how to work around certain areas as now with my arm weakness I can strain certain muscles too easily. I on purpose got a recumbant bike that does not have the handles in front for an upper body workout because for me that would do more harm then good. I do several smaller sessions during the day and it seems to work so far. I added in some of the leg strenthening exercises as well. Thanks again for letting us all know how it is going!
627388 tn?1222201812 Tips for Safe Exercise Always warm up before beginning your exercise routine and cool down at the end. If you plan to workout for 30 minutes, start with 10-minute workout sessions and work your way up. Workout in a safe environment; avoid slippery floors, poor lighting, throw rugs, and other potential tripping hazards. If you have difficulty balancing, exercise within reach of a grab bar or rail. If at any time you feel sick or you begin to hurt, STOP.
11079760 tn?1483389730 This morning, I woke early to try out a few things and see how it goes. I have done quite literally no exercise in about 1.5 years (ugh). I have lots of excuses...the end result is the same. Bleh.
Avatar f tn I know some Eastern medicine doctors (Dr. Wu in San Francisco) recommend a modified exercise schedule while TTC and in first trimester. Her recommendation varies depending on whether you are pre- or post-ovulation; you can do more heavy exercise during pre-ovulation I think and then only light upper body exercises post-ovulation, but if you want to be sure I'd check out her book. I'm 39 and a huge workout person so I know how the idea of giving up any exercise sounds!
Avatar m tn My doctor says that there's no -barriers- to exercise...Indeed, I need to, pretty badly, to lose weight (like most people). And I have a membership at my local gym.
Avatar f tn Its probably a good idea to have a doctor advise you on an exercise plan.. is ist your only issue? is your heart structurally sound? Do you get dizzy/short of breath when you experience that high heart rate on exertion? .. I cant speak for you personally, but for me (i also experience a high exercise intolerance, 160-180 pulse at the walk), i just push through it..
684604 tn?1293481326 ALT - Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think any of us are talking about "losing weight" we're just talking about being healthy and keeping active. At least that's what I was talking about. If Alli is talking about losing weight then yes I agree that is usually not ok unless the doctor for some reason says you need to...don't think that really happens. This pretty much sums up what I've always heard from my doctors: http://kidshealth.org/parent/nutrition_fit/fitness/exercising_pregnancy.
723952 tn?1231861132 This whole-body conditioning program is what is required to achieve wellness. Simply placing the patient on a treadmill or an exercise bike is not acceptable (except briefly, as part of a warm-up), nor is a simple walking program.
1571533 tn?1322947109 SO for the past yr I am hanging at this new weight, that is still not where I want to be, but is less then I was last yr this time..... I found a Dr that is working with me to devise an exercise plan for those of us with limitations due to pain and the results of chiari and the surgery. As I complete the steps and find that they work for me I will share this with u...but I am just starting and do not want to hand off something especially to someone that is still healing...
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.
649848 tn?1534637300 Do you go to a gym? Walking, running, etc? Workout videos? Do you have your own exercise equipment? Whatever your "mode" of exercise is -- let's see how many different things we can come up with!! I'm also curious if anyone has a hard time getting started with exercise or can you just jump right in, stay consistent and love it... If so, how much time do you spend on exercise per day/week?? If not, what can we do to help? Personally, I have a Wii, along with the Wii Fit.
315094 tn?1201393650 It was always following a period of vigorous exercise. Then, all of a sudden, that pattern stopped and I could exercise to my hearts content with no "relapse. Did discuss with one of the leading hepatologists of the day (this was around 30 years ago) and he concurred it was exercise in my case although no real explanation why was given, nor was it probably asked back then.
61536 tn?1340701763 This condition sucks. If (during exercise) I move just the right way or of my heart rate gets too high, all it takes is one PAC and I go into SVT. This means I have to stop what I am doing, bear down, then go splash cold water on my face before I can resume what I was doing. It always seems to happen when I'm really feeling my best, too. Talk about a buzzkill!
Avatar n tn If they appear they'll continue well into the next day (usually) and will gradually go away. I'll exercise again, and the cycle seems to start all over. Very annoying and a bit disconcerting. Tests: EKG (2) Treadmill stress 24 hr Holter All were normal, but I don't think much happened when I was wearing the Holter. Question: Should I be concerned? It annoys me enough that I'm beginning to fear my workouts. I feel great while doing them, but am afraid of what will happen later on.
7149587 tn?1388559096 As you know 1st get exercise plan cleared by your doctor. I have two ideas. One is called bed or couch Yoga. Mix with isometric exercises. All done on the couch or your bed as a platform. Personally I'm not getting on the floor to do things I can do while I'm using my bed for a yoga mat. I've been doing Yoga since my teens & there is just not that much difference. I'm not Guru Yogi for heavens sake. After you finish, get to a pool. Find one.
Avatar n tn holtor, and ekg to check my heart. I have bouts of pain only during exercise that happen about 2 times a week. I workout 5 days. The pain is squeezing, burning and lasts about 2-4 minutes. Don't always have to stop, just slow way down. All test normal, except holtor showed heart rate at 200 during workout, at which time I was experiencing pain. The stress test was stoped at 9 min. as I reached the max rate of 151.
1709431 tn?1308073112 In 2009 I trained for and rode in the Leadville, CO 100 mile bike race and that was a highlight of my life. This year a group of friends have decided to run/hike the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim which equates to about 50 miles in less then two days. We are contemplating going non stop which would be about 20 hours. The trip is scheduled for October so at the beginning of May I began my rigorous training. Here is the problem!
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 just could not recover from hard exercise like that. I did commute to work by bike most days (10 miles easy) and that seemed very beneficial. I hear this treatment is much easier than the interferon treatments. The obsessive exerciser in me is freaking out a little as I get closer to go time :). I hope you are having success in your treatment!
Avatar f tn Like about 80% or more people with MS my biggest enemy is chronic fatigue. So how do I manage to do a regular, effective, workout where I don't have to bail out half way through for a nap and that will actually result in weight-loss. Any advice or resource suggestions?
Avatar f tn I've read articles about lactic acid buildup causing breakouts after exercise. I've also heard about exercise raising androgen levels which may cause acne. Could one of these be the culprit to my acne, or could it be something else? And what can I do to stop getting this acne without sacrificing exercise? Thanks for your help.
616227 tn?1251079998 Here is mine for the week 100 crunches per day x 7 = 700 crunches 3 days of 30 minutes Joggin 90 minutes Foot ball Thursday night Volleyball Sunday night Strength exercises 4 days this week So What Is Your Exercise Plan Of The Week?
5549258 tn?1449086682 It's amazing how so many things seem to pile up on us at times that it seems we will never get up from under it -- then BAM we take a bike ride, get a good nights sleep, read a book, meditate, workout, run, walk, goto a meeting, talk to a friend.. Well you get the point.. Everything doesn't go away but seems more manageable when I do stuff to get out of my own head... Without sounding cliche being in my own head is the worst place for me to be..
Avatar m tn But I've also convinced myself other things are not safe and I expect them to come and they do, it's like I can will them. (my exercise bike and treadmill are not safe right now. I'm working on my fear right now, that's all any of us can do I guess. I'm going to just sit on the bike and pedal stupid slow for awhile. Work up to slow, then maybe moderately slow....
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.
