Avatar n tn An exercise routine that can be done anytime, anywhere, alone, or with a group? Walking might be a perfect match. It’s safe, low impact, strengthens muscles, and helps keep weight in check. Aim for a pace that leaves you slightly short of breath, but not so much that you can’t carry on a conversation normally. Besides building muscle in the lower body, walking also works out your heart and lungs.
Avatar n tn I have been walking about 1-1/2 miles a day, five or more days a week ever since and have lost about 50lbs. This past year I have been taking 100mg of Toprol XL & 25mg of Cozar. My blood pressure is under control & I feel healthier than ever. I just added to my exercise regime a 3-times a week weight training program with a personnel trainer.
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.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr Goodman Following 2 Laparotomy's for Ovarian Cancer can I ask when will i be able to start doing exercises to strengthen my abdominal muscles. I have been doing lots of walking and pelvic floor exercises to build up stamina but I have a few pieces of equipment Rowing Machine, Cross Trainer, Spin Bike. I am now 14 weeks Post operative 2nd Laparotomy.
Avatar f tn 20 weeks and have worked out 5 days / week the whole time so far.
Avatar f tn Every sport i've ever been into required/requires balance, coordination and leg strength, being an ex-gymnast it was just normal for me to continue to do the things i did, after 09 i've had to relearn and keep adjusting to my new normal. My personal expectations of what i can physically do these days, is admittedly a touch delusional lol hmmmm breaking down your goal into small more achievable blocks, really helps both mentally and physically.
Avatar f tn Choosing will often be a decision between desired goals, ease of use, availability, and comfort. Many people overlook this basic form of exercise. Walking has a low impact on the joints and is good for those who are just starting a fitness program. Substituting your regular workout with a lighter day of walking can also provide the rest and recovery needed within a workout routine. The only equipment required is a comfortable pair of shoes.
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 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.

Avatar n tn 5 years ago I started feeling an ache in the center of my chest while walking the dog most times during the first 15 minutes of exercise. After approximately 15 minutes of cardio exercise I’m fine and can hike some very strenuous trails above 10,000 feet altitude for hours with no discomfort. The only problem I have is the first 15 minutes. The ache stops as soon as I stop exercising.
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 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.
572651 tn?1531002957 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.
Avatar f tn Do I feel good on the off days because of the stretching and exercise or do I feel good because the stretching and exercise is taken out of the equation? I hope you are all well and having a "good" day. FU MS!
703362 tn?1427769928 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 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 , yoga geared to MS patients who have trouble with their legs. For me, taking on walking as a form of exercise is not a possibility. And there's the key, I think. Finding an exercise that works for you.
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.
579258 tn?1250652943 Congratulations on posting and acknowledging your “allergy” to exercise. As you describe your array of equipment and videos, I was shaking my head in agreement as I own many as well, some that still need brought out of hibernation. I Believe there are several keys that help us “unlock” our willingness to exercise – and I hope you’ll allow me to share a few of those with you. 1.
572651 tn?1531002957 Of course you can exercise from a wheelchair. You can also transfer from a wheelchair to a recumbent bike or other equipment. Sometimes those pieces of equipment have to be tailored to the patient...many of the things I use have been. I only read what was said here. I haven't seen the entire thing. However, reading the above makes him sound like a guru that has all the answers and that he is capable with his method to get us all up walking. Now with more information it makes sense.
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.
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 had six stents (small heart attack during the procedure which has damaged a very small part of my heart musclewhich they say will not effect general prognosis). I have been walking to try to regain my fitness. I find while walking I feel a build up of pressure in my chest. It seems to be worse if I walk late in the day. Most of the time I walk through it. Sometimes I have to stop awhile. I am taking Clopidogrel (75mg) Simvastatin (40 mg) Bisoprolol (1.2 mg) and Ramipril 2.5 mg.
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.
1124887 tn?1313758491 For some reason, I related the palpitations to walking and not the neighbourhood, and I got palpitations when working out after this event. Holter monitoring confirmed PACs (not PVCs). Other tests were completely clean. Anyway, I started using a beta blocker (10-20 mgs of Pranolol), some magnesium and Omega-3, and started exercising 3-5 times a week, and the symptoms went away completely.
222135 tn?1236491821 The PT said that in Craig's case, the only exercise equipment he would recommend is an exercise bike with no resistance. Do not do anything that builds up muscles. Do you have hypertonicity?? Have you thought about going to one of your sister's neuros?? With a family history, one of their docs may be a good choice. Just for a diagnosis. I don't think waiting till July is that great of an idea.
Avatar f tn You get so caught up in the game without even realizing you're just there for exercise, and winning of course ;). Since you said no equipment, try jogging in in spot for 20-30 minutes. Your goal is to keep your heart rate beating fast to burn calories, so I'd say about every other minute run as fast as you can with proper form. In between the minutes, just jog. I'm no expert, so try YouTube to see the proper running form, or how they do their exercise.
