Common Questions and Answers about Exercise routine gym


Avatar f tn I currently got a gym membership and was curious if any of you could help me with a gym routine. I can't afford a personal trainer they are very pricey! Is it better to do the elliptical or run? I heard running breaks up fat better/faster? Anyways I'm 195 pounds 5'1 and looking to loose about 60 pounds by New Years. Any an all help is welcome. Mahalo!
Avatar f tn Still going to the gym? What you doing? I'm 21 weeks, been mostly walking, eleptical, and biking.
Avatar f tn Typically, you can continue your exercise regime for as long as you are able too during pregnancy and this is actually encouraged by drs (check with your dr first though to make sure there isnt a reason why you cant exercise). As others have mentioned, watch out for overheating and dehydration.
Avatar f tn Do arms and chest then the next day do treadmill and then legs and butt. Break the third day and start the routine over. I was doing pole , floor/chair, & stretch classes and gym before pregnancy up until my second trimester. But due to schedule conflicts I stopped the pole.
Avatar f tn I've recently started going to the gym and dont really know what to do besides the elliptical or treadmill. What are some machine's And workouts you would suggest to lose weight and get strong? I'm a 20 year old girl. Thank you!
Avatar n tn I assume the gym has trainers! I suggest starting with her/him.
Avatar f tn do it a third time and that's complete. Then move on to the next exercise and do the same. As each exercise gets easier add either another rep or more weight. Only do cardio after weights. Try the following cardio. The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.
Avatar n tn I'm 35 weeks and I use the stationary cycles at the gym. I also walk, do light arm, chest and back workouts with weights (no more than 25 pounds), and though I haven't done it I've heard swimming is great. You'll know if you're over doing it.
Avatar f tn I am remaining on my same fitness routine I had prior to becoming pregnant. I attend yoga sculpt 1-2 times per week, zumba and run a few times per week. There's a great book called The Pregnant Athlete. Fitness is always important to me but has become even more of a priority now that I'm pregnant. It's supposed to help with pregnancy, labor and bouncing back after baby. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I know they say that water aerobics and light excersizes are good to treat the fibro pain, but whta about hitting the gym to do a normal exercise routine? i have been working out on & off the past few days and my body feels like ****! it seems that when i pull a muscle its 50x worse than it was before i started suffering from fibro. im just trying to figure out if working out will show some long term affects in reducing pain or if im only making things worse.
Avatar f tn My doc told me that if u have a normal pregnancy u can continue ur normal exercise routine all the way through as long as ur tolerating it well. She had me eliminate fall risk at 12 weeks... for me this was snowboarding. But other than that I am 34 weeks and still exercising 5 days/week. I still run, do yoga, do insanity videos with some modifications, T 25 videos, elliptical, and hike on weekends (6-7 hilly miles at elevation), etc. I modify things on a daily basis.
143123 tn?1274304425 I gained alot of weight, but because I had a good exercise routine before I delivered, getting back into the routine was not that hard. BEST OF LUCK!
Avatar n tn As your skill builds, the added poses become increasingly challenging in different ways, which makes yoga an exercise routine that grows with you. Another basic yoga concept is that everyone is on his or her own path, progressing at his or her own pace. So leave behind the competitive spirit or fear that you’re not as good as others. Be sure to let your instructor know you have arthritis so he or she can help adapt the poses to match your personal physical limits.
10028419 tn?1416845304 I walk occasionally now but would like to start exercising again to help with weight gain and labor! Any one else exercise? I need tips on whats safe and what I should be doing!
Avatar n tn I have not been able to do a regular routine as far as exercise goes and that does bother me. However, on my good days...I will walk or do a mini exercise program at house as my strength allows. I am beginning week 18 of 48 and last couple of weeks...I got super anemic and barely had strength to do regular duties and was quite winded. If you are feeling good on tx...exercise is great and keeps the sides to a minumum. I know when I'm through...
1237562 tn?1360993180 Wondering if others exercise while on therapy, I'v been able to keep up my regimen of alternating between cardio and strength. still in the first week of therepay, feeling pretty good but....... Drinking over a gl of water a day. this group has been so helpful.
Avatar n tn Hey moms. I am curious about how you guys are getting in your exercise. I have eliminated any kinds of ab workouts, I do a quick simple arm and leg routine and then do 2o min on my elliptical. Some days I am all full of energy and have to remind myself that I set a time limit for a reason. Other days, I don't feel like doing anything! My lil workout is how I end the day. The kids are in bed, so is my so. I clean then I take my workout as some me time. Then shower and bed.
Avatar f tn My worst symptoms were anxiety (heart racing) and headache and I gave myself 2 days rest, then I plowed back into my routine. The exercise combined with music calmed my nerves and brought out lots of tears that needed to flow. Listen to your body, but push it when you can.
571042 tn?1271450741 hahahah exercise .. the only exercise i do is run around after my kids.. littest one being just about 10 months.. thats all i get .heehee and thats enough. im not a fan of it.. and i have only gained 2 lbs so far and im 21 weeks and 2 days..... so just relax and do wht you want for ur pregnancy.. either way its labor wheither it be a hard one or a easy one you still get the same result in the end ...
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 I feel better both mentally and physically when I exercise but found that my normal routine took too much out of me for the day. So, now I get my exercise in my daily activities - like 4 hours of gardening today. The bonus there is the sunshine!
Avatar f tn I decided that a four month break from my exercise routine would not have long term effects, and chose to enjoy every moment possible of my limited time abroad rather than spending time working out. I'm realizing now that this has been amazing-- I have miles more energy every day, I can function better on less sleep than I was getting before, and I'm not starving all the time like I once was (being hungry all the time was just a fact of my life, I was in fact eating a healthy amount).
Avatar n tn Plan the time, the place and the type of exercise you will do. Strive to exercise early in the morning, as events that distract you may surface later in the day. Set out workout clothes and a gym bag the previous night. Warm up before you exercise. If you are just getting back into working out, you probably have tight areas that are knotted and painful. Foam rolling, also known as “the poor man’s massage,” as a warmup technique.
242143 tn?1215473908 Hi ladies! Quick question..is it ok to go to the gym during my 2ww? I usually work out around 4 times a week, do some tredmill for about 45 min. Can I continue doing that or should I just relax for possible implantation..?? My dh is giving me a hard time because he's going to the gym alone these days! And I feel lazy for not going but I don't want to risk it. Any input?
470885 tn?1326332637 Just wondering if anyone altered or changed their exercise routine while TTC? I joined the gym nearly a year ago (although I've only been TTC since March). I aim to go 3 times a week at lunch (but work has been so crazy lately that, realistically, I'm only there twice per week). I do 20 minutes of cardio (eliptical) and then a short circuit of weights (all upper body). I also do some squats and situps.
Avatar f tn I have been trying my own workouts and dieting and lost 6lbs since the beginning of the month, but I am worried that I may not be going about this the correct way in terms of the type of weight loss and transformation i am working towards. If anyone is willing to help out and show me the most effective routine I can stick to each day to reach this goal it would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Avatar m tn I was just seeing if any experienced guys on here have a good routine for a beginner/intermediate like myself. I started doing a little of everything 3 times a week, then did arms/abs then chest/back/shoulders/legs twice a week (which took like 2 hours each time to where I was ready to pass out). I am thinking about trying to revamp my routine into a 4 day split with a day of cardio (as my off day). Maybe something like 1-arms, 2-legs, 3-chest/back, 4- shoulders- 5- run, then repeat.
