Avatar n tn ll have an exercise program, and most physical therapy equipment can be purchased for not a lot of money over the internet. Over time, you will get stronger in a way that suits you, and hopefully break out of your rut. But for any of us to tell you specific exercises to do is difficult, as we don't know what's really going on nor how strong you are nor how you'll react to a specific exercise.
Avatar n tn I had a roommate who used one of these in bad weather, and Gym is right, it's much easier to maintain and use than exercise equipment. I like the home exercise equipment, but as i said, it always turns out to need a lot of maintenance even when new.
703362 tn?1427766328 Good Saturday Morning everyone! The exercise from my bootcamp workout that I would like to talk about today is the 'squat' with a hold. Another great move that requires very little time, no equipment, and can be performed nearly anywhere you happen to be. Sounds easy?....well, give it a try and let me know what you think. ; ) Squat (with hold): Works: Glutes, quads, and hamstrings How To: Stand with feet a little more than hip distance apart.
1551655 tn?1294260921 If you wish to purchase hand weights or stretch bands to use at home, stores like Walmart in addition to Sports stores carry such equipment at very low costs. Yard sales are an excellent source of used exercise equipment! Have fun with exercise, if possible, so that you will look forward to it! Cheap DVD's (or old used video tapes) are also available, at a very low cost.
Avatar m tn Leg extension, leg curl, leg press these are great for toning your upper legs along with your calfs. Also, the hip abduction and hip adduction weight machines are brightly to lose weight on your upper legs. The most important thing to knows is that you cannot just lose weight in the one area I would suggest the best thing for you is to do 30 minute cardio to burn the calories during a workout and then 30/40 minute weight training to get your metabolism working faster.
Avatar f tn All my exercising is done either at my gym (and I clean the equipment well before I get on it), or on my home equipment where I have a treadmill and a stationary bike and 3 lb hand weights. When I'm feeling anxious, getting on the treadmill for 10 min. does wondering. When I'm feeling blue, same thing. When I'm feeling arthritic, stiff or sore, same thing. I can't take NSAIDS so, I can't just pop an Aleve or a Motrin or Advil, because those are NSAIDS.
Avatar f tn re ready to graduate from body-weight exercises to regular trips to the gym, try weight machines that directly target your lower body. A leg press targets your thighs and rear, while leg curls on a leg curl machine will help you get firm thighs and a strong back. To combine cardio with strength training, try a rowing machine, which has the added benefit of working your arms and upper body. Combining different types of exercise can help you get a stronger workout.
Avatar f tn s also a beneficial weight loss exercise that someone with bad knees can use. Leg exercises like heavy squats, leg presses and leg extensions will likely have to be avoided, but you can still get a good calorie burn with others. The bench press, shoulder press, rowing movements, biceps and triceps exercises and abdominal work helps to build lean muscle, which helps burn fat. Set up a series of exercises in a circuit to increase the calorie burn even more.
Avatar m tn I found myself cheating, the pain inside my left knee wouldnt let me do the exercise right so my right leg started to get thicker than my left and the leg press machine was getting unbalanced too. A year or so after, walking down the street felt this excruciating pain, somewhere on top left side of my head,had to stop and hold my head for a few seconds and just as it came on it went away. Believed that was it.
Avatar m tn The paramedics arrived and my heartrate was at 140ish at that time. They ran the heart heart monitor equipment at the hospital and had one of those 24 hr monitors on me and didnt notice one thing wrong. It was a feeling like oh here it goes (tenses up) and then finally my heart started racing.I do have somewhat high blood pressure last time i checked it was 140/80-90 with a pulse of 68. I am overweight.
Avatar f tn t do any kind of exercise because of her leg .. and recently she had a problem with breathing too.. what do u suggest for her??
12693075 tn?1442246392 hey ladies!!! Do you guys have the energy to exercise? If so, how long and what are you doing? I'm a FTM in my 3rd trimester. I'm always tired but not sleepy.
703362 tn?1427766328 The exercise that I would like to talk about today is called "Plank". It requires no equipment, not a lot of time, and you don't have to be at a gym to perform it. Looks quite easy, but looks can definitely be deceiving....I would like for you all to give it a try and tell me how you did. Plank Exercise (see photo above): Works: Core How To: Assume a push-up position, then rest your forearms on the ground and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat as tolerated.
Avatar f tn If you can find a store with exercise equipment, there are weights you can wrap around your ankles to increase resistence. Between the strength training and cardio workout, you will burn those extra calories and fat stored in the waist and thighs, and also increase your metabolism to continue burning those calories after your workout. Remember, without the proper foods and drink in your diet, no amount of exercise will really help. Good luck! I know you can start a routine!
Avatar n tn she is biking every hope that it will heal her or at least getting better. Is massage disturbing her nerve? Is it ok to massage her leg. She like me to press around her Sciatica area. I really need your knowledge, may be any advice to my mom. I have no knowledge or experience, but today I watched your video of your case and they said it help them. I hope it can help my mom too. Any word of wisdom will greatly appreciate here. God bless you.
968857 tn?1247600450 m beginning to eat healthily, but because of my figure, I find myself too nervous to go outside and exercise. Does anyone have any tips for home exercising, or maybe ideas on good ways of keeping control on what I'm eating, without going on a proper diet, as members of my family have been on many diets, and they, from experience, seem to make things worse. Thanks for reading.

Avatar n tn I have really extremely skinny legs and I'd information about implants of the leg, calf, and ankle. I was wondering if there's implants for the legs between the ankle and calf area.
Avatar m tn re challenging your balance (for example you can do bicep curls on 1 leg), coordination (for example a step up to a shoulder press/or a squat with a curl and a shoulder press), and including core exercises. During the first 4 to 8 weeks of embarking upon a resistance training program, the first things to adapt will be your balance, coordination, and core strength. Stick with the full body workouts for the first 4 to 8 weeks, then you can progress to a more advanced routine.
Avatar f tn feeling going through my left leg I kept wiping just to find my leg dry, I also had a slight numbness in my left leg from a few fingers down my waist, part of my butt and then down my leg front and back. The numbness isn't total as I am able to feel sharp things, light touches etc but it does feel like my skin is itchy and warm specially when I press hard on it and I am not able to feel temperatures as normally as the other leg but I can differentiate between cold and warm.
572651 tn?1530999357 Obviously it is important to stay as physically active as possible with this crazy disease. I'm wondering what type of exercise routine any of you may have found that is "do-able." Currently I am doing Tai Chi, which is great for my balance and Chi (life force energy) but offers little aerobic benefit. I am also doing water aerobics two times a week, along with swimming laps.
