Common Questions and Answers about Exercise equipment quackery


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.
Avatar f tn Try to lower your Carbohydrates if they are over 100g a day. You can do 15 min interval body weight exercises without any exercise equipment at all an get amazing results. I recommend something like 20-30 seconds on 10 seconds rest between each set. Squats, push-ups, Mountain climbers, Crunches or Leg Lifts, lunges.

Avatar f tn Are you saying while working at a constant/level exercise aerobic level your HR will drop from 180 to 34? This sounds like equipment failure to me. I did read that you get these strange readings on different equipment, but are you using the same transmitter? For example, my Polar wrist monitor with a chest strap will also drive the HR on some tread mills and other equipment, so if the chest strap/transmitter is producing errors, those errors will be displayed on all compatible equipment.

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.
Avatar n tn I did see this last year, which was the last time I checked my heart rate during exercise, right before the brain surgery. My doctor at the time explained it was because of the CM1 and syrinx, which was affecting my blood pressure (because it was on the cerebellum)... I haven't checked my heart rate since because my blood pressure did drop dramatically after the surgery, enabling me to come off the medication, and I thought it was solved... So help me. Please.
Avatar f tn A recent study conducted by the University of Buffalo’s Concussion Management Clinic suggests that cardio vascular exercise performed on a equipment that does not involve a lot of impact or bouncing such as a stationary bike, elliptical or treadmill can speed the recovery process. One of the lead researchers Dr.
Avatar f tn I do but the only things I use are the treadmill and the elliptical. A lot of the equipment is off limits while pregnant so be sure to talk to your dr before trying something new.
1906433 tn?1321844691 I would like to get back into exercising more, however I'm concerned with how my cranium will handle it, because it's still healing from having a tumor removed in 08/11. I do walk, but I did more before the tumor was diagnosed. My neurosurgeon doesn't address anything that he doesn't seem to think is his field. My chiropractor says walk, walk, walk. Which is ok, but with the weather getting colder, I can't tolerate outside much.
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 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.
973741 tn?1342342773 We have had an exercise bike, hopefully placed right in the TV room so we would use it. Did we? No. We now own a very nice rowing machine. Someone has used it two or three times since the beginning of the year. It seems like the value of Peloton would be only in if it is motivational. If someone is prompted by the high price to become a fanatic for exercise, more power to he and to the program.
Avatar f tn Well I see Dr. Mercola has jumped on the Lyme disease bandwagon. Not directly, but via an interview with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. In my opinion, there's some quackery involved in his treatments, but the article was the only mention of worms, both micro and macroscopic I've ran across. I'll bet a lot of people with Lyme aren't even checked for the little vermin. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/02/05/dr-dietrich-klinghardt-on-lyme-disease.aspx?
Avatar f tn Having had home exercise equipment, you'll probably just damage the machine. I do find it odd that it would have so little resistance -- maybe you're not using it properly? But for best results, either go to the gym where they have better bikes or buy a heavier duty one. Or, and I know this is radical these days, buy a real bike, go OUTSIDE, and ride hills.
Avatar f tn t know of any lotions that will really get rid of cellulite; nor will exercise. Exercise and a good diet should help you lose fat and/or tone muscles, which could diminish the appearance of cellulite. I also must tell you that it's probably not going to happen "fast". Some lotions may "plump up" your skin which could also help diminish the appearance of cellulite. There are a lot of exercises that you can watch online -- and require no equipment.
Avatar f tn re intimidated by exercise equipment. Perform exercises such as pushups, situps, jumping jacks, squats and lunges. These equipment-free exercises are convenient for home workouts, but can help you get comfortable in a gym setting. If you're not sure how a machine works ask the personal at the gym. Get the OK from your doctor first.
Avatar f tn t feel like leaving the house to exersize, look at a YouTube channel called blogilates, she has loads of work out videos you can do at home without any equipment and they are really fun and motivating too

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. What kind of exercise can I do? I need to lose about 25 lbs. and I was walking but now I'm not sure if that is good for me.
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!
