Exercise your core

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise your core


Avatar n tn I lifted #50 plus items (required for my work) After an MRI and two steroid injections into the base of my spine, I am a little better but still suffer with constant pain. The physiatrist said I should do exercise to strenthen my core muscles and lift weights but not to excess and he thought 50 lbs was execive for my height/weight. He disappeared without telling me what kind of exercise I should do to strengthen the core muscles and wants to see me in 2 months.
Avatar f tn Running is a great way to burn fat fast and it helps your core. I also recommend workouts such as the "Spartacus" or T25 workouts. These are videos of quick 20 min workouts that are intense but burn a lot of calories and they work your entire core. Take a peek at these on YouTube they are great and they work.
Avatar m tn Following Insanity you can burn up to 1,000 calories in each of their hour-long workouts, which are based on max interval training. That means long bouts of intense strength, power, resistance, and core training moves, with short breaks in between. As stated you CAN burn up to 1,000 cal. But you have to give it your ALL. I suggest buying a heart rate monitor that will show calories burned.
Avatar f tn I agree, my husband does Sports Medicine and he recommends stopping all core work that puts u flat on your back @ 20 weeks, but plank and rotation work is perfect.
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 They have great pregnancy modifications and are a great workout. On days i didn't do that and now, I do light weights, cardio, core, etc. On days i don't feel like working out, i will at least wander around a store for an hr or two. I think it has helped my pregnancy go by super easy and kept my energy up.
Avatar f tn Hey! What are you guys doing for exercise? I ran a half marathon first week of December and my LMP was Dec 24. I normally run or do t25 but haven't run yet since I found out and am doing t25 more modified. What about you guys? Any recommendations by your drs?
1906433 tn?1321848291 A PT could help to develop a plan for regain some strength in your legs and core based on you. If you can get that referral you might be able to get six-10 sessions where the PT would work side by side with you and help to to gently improve your strength with ball and gentle mat type exercises and also assess and teach you how to use the equipment that might be appropriate for you to use.

Avatar f tn The plank is easy only if you're doing it incorrectly or don't know how to make it more challenging, The plank is key because it teaches you to make your core stiff. you need for almost every exercise. Start by assuming a plank position, and then have a friend place a broomstick along your back. It should touch your head, upper back, and butt; this indicates that your spine is in proper alignment. If the stick doesn't make contact at all three points, simply adjust your posture until it does.
Avatar f tn list=PL9FxWnfq1Oyo9pHHUPHeQne4iqoZ4zTN_ Figure your heart rate by this formula  The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
269786 tn?1243797307 Think I'll start an exercise tracker. I need to keep track of what I am doing and hope it will encourage me to go to yoga class. Also, want to work out at least 4 times a week. Have been slacking off lately. Winter is hell.
Avatar f tn There's so much research on it. But it usually depends if your working your core. Running and basic core training will improve your belly.
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.
401095 tn?1351395370 I agree w/pretty much all of the above but I am still trying to work and figure out what the emotional pain stems from b/c I have always had some type of vice be it cigs, pot, food, exercise, shopping, pills, etc.
Avatar f tn While crunches shouldn't be the only exercise that your core workout plan consists of, the basic crunch, and modifications of it to add difficulty, is a good starting point to target the abdominal muscles. Begin by lying on your back with your feet flat on the ground and your knees bent. Your heels should be about 12 inches from your bottom. Put your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the sides.
1059772 tn?1286658790 Does anyone know why the exercise on a tread mill would be different? I wasn't running, just walking fast. Unfortunately, I have easy access to a treadmill but the pool is quite the hike. Thanks, skye (finally feeling well enough to move it!
Avatar f tn We are all told exercise is good and should be encouraged in someone with MS. Im wondering if there is anyone out there who likes to jog and if they still are able to do this with MS. I find this is getting more and more difficult as the tingling, numbness and weird neuropathic feelings in my feet and legs seem to progressively get worse when I do this. Over the past couple of years these feelings come and go and have included spinal tingling if I looked to the gound.
649848 tn?1534637300 I guess my next favorite is doing the Core Secrets DVD, with the exercise ball. (Although I don't do this often b/c I'll only do it when i'm home alone or the kids and DH are in bed! LoL I don't like an audience.

627388 tn?1222201812 The types of exercise best suited to you and those which you should avoid The intensity of the workout (how hard you should be working) The duration of your workout and any physical limitations Referrals to other professionals, such as a physical therapist, who can help create a personal exercise program that meets your needs. The type of exercise that works best for you depends on your symptoms, fitness level, and overall health.
Avatar f tn Does your library have any exercise DVD's? Try pilates. Great way to build your core muscle strength!!! Look for it online, too.
11079760 tn?1483389730 Limit your reps and keep your stretches to very moderate. Do only what you can do without paying for it in the next few days, and slowly work up from there. Skip at least a day between sessions. I think a couple of weeks of this should tell you what's an MS issue and what's not.
Avatar f tn For the last few weeks I have either vomited or felt incredibly sick immediately following exercises targeting the core such as Russian twists and kettlebell windmills. I do not have this feeling following any form of exercise during the workout. For instance I completed some deadlifts and lateral pull downs today with no ill effects but as soon as I tried Russian twists I felt very sick. I am at a loss as to why this is happening.
Avatar f tn From a mental standpoint, I think it's really important to be happy with yourself if you achieve something on the exercise front and slowly go from there. That said, my exercise at the moment consists of taking my horse for a walk down the road with plenty of stops for her to stuff herself silly on the country roadside, and just enjoy my time with her. If I go on a brisk non stop walk, I just suddenly hit a wall and run out of go, so I'm settling for baby steps at the moment.

Avatar f tn Imagine your body cooling down in your core for about 10-20 minutes daily and you'll find that you can do this. Only in the West do we believe we are slaves to our physiology. For those with too low temps, (me), I use Tummo to keep myself at a comfortable warmth. My temps have dropped and I've noticed weight gain and that I'm cold all the time so I use Tummo meditation to raise my temps and it is working wonderfully. Feel free to google "tummo" or "g-tummo" to find out more.
Avatar f tn I would be careful. you dont want to do any that will stretch your stomach. I would ask your doctor what's ok and not ok. or look some up online.
