Exercise equipment used

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise equipment used


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.

29837 tn?1414538248 Exercise Okay, you’re taking your meds and you feel sh**ty. Well, the Ribavirin is robbing you of your oxygen, but not all. You still have enough left to do what you need to. Weight lifting, jogging, swimming, all help to keep your immune system strong during and off treatment. In my example, I have a free standing gym with 220 lbs. of weights. I work out with 55 lbs. I do 75 reps of pushing the bar straight out in front of me while sitting. On treatment, I pulled back to 50 reps.
1339332 tn?1329857966 a free weight machine (like a Bowflex power rod but by Weider) from Jim's brother, a treadmill from Tom, the eliptical I sold her last year 'cause I can't do it at all & it hurts my knees. They finally made space & set them up in the basement. Tried the eliptical---hurts my knees and ankles immediately and makes me breathless within 10 seconds like it always did. I used to have better luck with the treadmill...but got on it with no incline at 2mph and lasted only 3.
Avatar f tn Hi All, I am trying to determine the best exercise for my abilities. I used to be a distance runner, but now walking can even be a challenge. It has been 8 months since I was able to run and feel safe doing so. I have gained some weight since I've stopped running and I am not happy about that. I have been walking outside but the cold, snow, ice and dark will be here soon and that will no longer be an option.
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 f tn I sold my bikes and bought riding equipment. I also have stage 4 Cancer but find exercise makes the chemo better. The main thing is to do what you can. Sometimes I ride for 15 minutes. Some days a walk to the mail box is a triumph. With exercise and diet I made changes slowly. If I had tried exercising hard or given up all my favorite foods at once it would not have worked. Most importantly you need to be kind to yourself. Self criticism just is not helpful.
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.
6726276 tn?1421130268 I want to teach my dog more tricks. Something so she can get exercise. Is it hard to invent an obstacle course? How about teaching her to run it? She's great. Right now, she comes over if I want to pet her, & then I say, "Go lay down ." She knows & does it first try. She can sit. Lay down she has trouble, sometimes only part way down & if I have to repeat, she just rolls over & paws in the air till I pet her tummy.
Avatar n tn If you lessen the pressure it has a direct effect on the reading as well as if you use too much pressure. Almost any equipment used for rating of the heart and blood pressure has to be calibrated on a regular basis for accuracy...there are so many questions here...my bet is on the equipment and i think that gatewaycat and Pamz are right on the money w. this one....you could always ask your doc to put you on a holter monitor for a week or so to get an accurate idea of what is really going on..
Avatar n tn The gadget uses power output to convert to calaries burned, also only down by 10% in the same exercise time. Some exercise equipment uses heart rate to calculate calaries burned ....I think power output is probably more accurate. It would seem to me that if you extended your training session by an amount of time comparable to the power output reduction (say 10%) you would burn the same amount of fat as before.
Avatar n tn by excersise do you mean like tying your shoes. i usually had to rest after that one. most of my gym equipt was in the basement so i did no excersise as i could not manage the stairs, down was ok but up?
333672 tn?1273796389 I have no official diagnosis, and am not sure what is wrong with me at all. I'm frustrated with the exercise thing, too. I used to do alot of walking, I actually lost 25 lbs. That was over 2 years ago. Since all my symptoms started, I have tried to walk, and some days I do pretty well. But other days I can't walk for more than a few minutes without my foot and leg going numb or getting tingly or feeling incredibly heavy. I try to do what I can when I can!! Take care!
Avatar m tn I don't know the basis of a target heart rate being 220 minus age but that is the general consensus. Frankly, I don't relate my exercise with the heart rate. I base the exercise on the number of METs (4.4 for me) with a gauge included with health center's equipment that shows the degree of exertion. I know after about 7 years what is the appropriate exertion. I don't push myself to any maxium exertion!...I do a brisk walk (3.
572651 tn?1531002957 I was struck by the example Dr. Karpatkin used of how PwMS need to structure sets of exercise. Usually, people in therapy are instructed to do three sets of ten repetitions. PwMS may be better off doing 10 sets with 3 repetitions each -- and a big rest in between each set. He said we shouldn't exercise into fatigued muscles as that works against progress by limiting volume. Gains are lost if overly aggressive routines prompt pseudo exacerbations and days of inactivity.
579258 tn?1250652943 You can pick if you want everyone, just friends, or just you to see them. If you are not used to exercise, start small and build up. It does more harm than good to over-do it early on and hurt yourself. It is also easier to stick with chances when they are realistic. That goes for eating and exericse. Even walking on a treadmill for 5-10 minutes and stretching is a great start.
Avatar f tn Well, I just had a very interesting discussion with a physician friend of mine who has a PhD in biochemistry. She said that it is better if I dont exercise except easy walking for detox purposes and sleep is good since the liver has more oxygenated blood available to it without having to share it with the muscles. Oxygen is used only for basic metaboic functions.
Avatar n tn I love running, using aerobic equipment and lifting weights; however, I ususually experience flu-like symtoms for days, sometimes weeks, later. For years now, I have felt as if a virus surfaces in me everytime I exercise. My PCP is unhelpful. My ENT recommended L-Lysine which I have been taking with a multi-vitamin everyday for a year. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I personally waited until I was out of the first trimester to exercise, but my midwife told me that you can more or less continue to do the things you do before. Just don't get to a point where you can't breathe, keep well hydrated. It's something best to talk to with your doctor in case they have certain restrictions they want you to follow.
973741 tn?1342346373 I have a lot of equipment and I try to combine the chores with exercise. I set up a pull up bar and do some of those or leg raises when I pass through that door, heft a dumbbell for reps of one exercise or another.. I once scrubbed my whole floor while in plank position! I had been very distraught about not having time to workout and do the floor, so I did both. It was as intense as a workout alone, but scrubbing the floor suddenly became fun! The kids and I dance a lot or do yoga together!
Avatar n tn I suggest that a different set of equipment be used possibly in a gym or pt rehab facility while attatched to the heart monitor. Major weight pumping until your heart beats fast plus biking motions then a weigth circuit. Free weights. Something very challenging using all those muslces totally not used in running on a treadmill. Why not do a stress test on bike made stationary or a computerized facsimile of moutain terrain- rigour set to match your ride. While attached to monitors.
Avatar n tn Each time, I stopped running, and they would go away once my heartrate slowed. The onset was abrupt. I used to run 3-4 times per week 3-4.5 miles at a time, and was in great shape. I've had this checked out with an echo, stress echo and holter, although this never happened while I was hooked up--only rare (2-4) PVCs during monitoring. No structural heart problems, other than slight MVP and most recently, mild aortic regurg.
Avatar n tn When stress, like exercise, increases the heart rate, it makes you a higher risk for stroke and heart attack in this profession. Since the stress levels suffered by EMTs in emergency situations, your heart rate may prevent you from getting and keeping a job. Alot of time exercises that are aerobic bring down the heart rate. Biking, swimming, low impact aerobics and power walking are good exercises that will give you a good workout without raising your heart rate too high.
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 A heart rate that fast is too high and may potentially cause harm. I was told by my cardiologist that excessive exercise can sometimes 'stretch' the heart muscle (this is the phrase she used) and this can cause heart rhythm problems. I was told to reduce the level of exercise, I was cycling 120 Mile a week and swimming about 7, also walking 5 miles a day. Like me, you may need to reconsider the amount of exercise you do.
Avatar m tn I am a 40 year old male, about 25 lbs overweight, and I try to exercise at least three times per week on a treadmill. I am usually on the treadmill for 30 to 45 minutes, and try to keep my heart rate below 170. It is typically at least 150 after 8 minutes or so on the treadmill. I have had PACs almost constantly for over a year. I am on Flecainide (100 mg twice per day plus 50 mg at noon when I remember to take it) and propranalol at my discretion (stagefright).
572651 tn?1531002957 The New Year always brings with it the round of commercials and articles nudging us to turn our physical well being around with exercise and diets. I just saw a PT yesterday for my bursitis hip and she gave me a set of exercises to do at home. While I was doing foot-pumps and leg lifts to fire my hip muscles., I was wondering what others do to keep active.
Avatar f tn We Hashis tend to be low in D and B12. I know when my D was low, my leg cramps were worse. I used to do advanced spinning and aerobics. That was three years and 25 pounds ago.
Avatar f tn well, I can't anyway, just trying to walk to the mailbox takes as much effort as when I used to run 5 kilometers before work. So, I've put on heaps of weight and I think this makes my mobility worse. It's a vicious circle. I went and saw a bariatric surgeon who said that I'm not overweight enough to qualify for a gastric sleeve operation but because of my physical condition he would consider doing the surgery anyway. I have another appointment to see him at the end of January.
Avatar n tn Used to have NORMAL range BP until 2008 March. March 3, exercised on treadmill (usually a wonderful experience that I look forward to each day for many years) - 1/2 thru work out felt very dizzy, nauseated and weak...could barely get to main floor upright. Decided to take a shower and almost passed out - had to sit down in shower for 15 minutes.
