Avatar n tn Don't fall or crash. That's the biggest concern with bike riding.

419631 tn?1202979083 Hi. I have been on the Optifast diet now for 4 weeks. I have been walking, Bike riding, doing aerobics, at least for an hour two times a day and drinking at least 2 litres of water a day. Sometimes doing 2 (eg: walking and aerobics) at a time. All I have is the shakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus my 2 cups of vegies allowed in the optifast diet and the 2 litres of water a day. I have not weighted myself for the last 4 weeks (4 weeks ago i was 91kg, with a height of 5 foot).
Avatar n tn I am 6 wks pregnant and I did a 15 mole long bike ride along with other cyclists. Is that safe? Or should I lay back from bike riding in my 1st trimester?
Avatar n tn What I found to work "FAST" is bike riding. I started eating chicken, lean meats and fish. Lots of vegetables and salads and cut out white bread. I started riding my bike on a nearby trail for 6-12 miles at least 4-5 times a week. Drink PLENTY of water and in 3 weeks I was getting compliments. My upper body, arms and everywhere started slimming down. SO, throw a little exercise in your daily activities and make strawberries your after school snack! Good luck!
Avatar f tn hi, i asked my doctor a similar question when i was pregnant but it was about riding a push bike and he strongly recommended that i didnt because it puts presure on your pelvis and can cause problems and as meccah24 said it is extremely dangerous
Avatar m tn If the nerves are compressed they tend to cause muscle atrophy. You can take a chance by riding a bike, but run the risk of again developing pain and lifetime discomfort that will not be relieved by treatment. It is not simply the weight of the bicycle, but the up-and-down bumps that will be transmitted to the lumbar vertebrae.
1222076 tn?1423027749 Im going to start going bike riding when I get my bike fixed and going for walks nightly. Im just wondering if theirs any good diets that are fast, cheap and actally work? I have no idea how to eat healthy so thats a lot of my problem and my lack of exercise dont help witch im trying to fix. I dont really have any money so thats another problem. I see diet stuff all the time I just dont know how well they actally work, if their safe and their always pretty expensive.
Avatar n tn I was riding on my bike going about 20-30mph. I was knocked off and got pinned under my bike but landed primarily on my knee and leg. This resulted in a huge cut just under the knee. It's been a week and two days since then. The knee is healing however there is still a big bump directly underneath the knee. Could I have fractured a bone? It's still somewhat tender to the touch but I've been able to walk on it.
631359 tn?1222374022 I have lost some weight, but i am not losing anything at this point. I watch what I eat, i eat 5 times small meals, I am riding a bike 6 miles a day. I started out just walking but now i have started riding now. I also do weights a few times a week, 10 lbs weights doing 30 reps at a time upper arms and core. What am I doing wrong?
Avatar n tn The membrane (hymen) can be broken by riding a bike, inserting anything into the vagina, having sex, or doing a rough activity. Losing your virginity is the act of having sex with another person. Sometimes a female can have her hymen broken when losing her virginity, but no longer having a hymen doesn't mean you're not a virgin. Please know, whether your hymen is broken or not, that it is up to YOU (and no one else) to decide if you are or are not a virgin.
Avatar m tn I didnt want to put my life on hold due to this so i began losing weight again little by little from walking and other ways but i stopped weight lifting and bike riding pretty much due to the fear of having that thing bloodclot again(thrombose). It was late August when this began and it is now January. I still have the hemorrhoids, though i find its better to call it piles since they dont hurt, are only slightly uncomfortable and still have never seen any blood.
Avatar m tn I was riding a new gym bike at home. When I finished (after 20 minutes) I felt numbness and tingling in my penis. This passed after a few hours, however 5 days after this, my penis is still somewhat stiff when flaccid, and I'm suffering from erectile dysfunction. From the research I've done it seems that I've damaged the perineum. This makes sense, as I remember riding for some time with my body forward, putting pressure on that area (I am an inexperienced biker).
907968 tn?1292622204 I have been in the mood to do some bike riding for exorcise but because of the cold I have not bout one yet. I need to know what would be the better choice for cardiovascular workouts, a mountain bike or a road bike? This would be run on small village and country roads no more that 5-ish miles a day. The reason for the question is that I don't know how much of a difference the posture makes between the two types.
Avatar f tn Exercise does not have to happen in a gym - try gardening, dancing, walking, bike riding, or playing tennis, whatever you enjoy. Start slowly and gradually increase your intensity. 4. Not Changing Your Environment Diet Success Tip: Seek support from your family, friends, and co-workers. And, Wyatt suggests, remove temptations wherever you can. Stock your kitchen with nutritious foods so you have ingredients on hand for healthy meals and snacks.
Avatar f tn Riding a bike is another non-impact exercise that is beneficial to weight loss. Riding a bike utilizes your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and glutes to propel you forward without any pounding on your joints. To get a quality weight loss workout, ride your bike off road or on the road, or use a stationary bike at the gym. Stay away from steep hills to protect your knees; riding on flatter surfaces doesn't require as much intensity.
Avatar f tn I'm turning 17 in a week and I decided that its time I quit being a chubby teenager. I need help, though. I know that you have to burn more calories than you consume in order to lose weight. And I WANT to lose at least one pants size by the time school starts. But I'm still going to exercise and diet when school comes back.
Avatar n tn Up until Dec 2011, my only leg exercise was daily walking, very sporadic bike riding and daily martial arts with light kicking. I reinjured it in Dec during a martial arts pivot or kick. Not acute. Just started hurting to the point that I stopped training. I started riding my bike almost daily. After 6 wks, my thighs were noticeably bigger (though I'm thin by nature) and knee feeling pretty good.
664710 tn?1226929596 I get that too!!! I get tingling sensations all through the middle or the saddle area and then when I need to get off of the bike my legs are tingling and feel like they are not quite there like jello legs. I have to stand still for a few minutes before I can start to walk. I haven't told anyone because my hubby has already let me know that my days of riding on the bike are limited.
Monkey You will find that by dropping your calories to under 1800 calories per day you will be more successful at your weight loss. For most people they need to walk 35 miles to lose 1 lb of fat--possibly shorter for bike riding but not by much. But if one cuts their daily calories so they are lightly hungry for a few hours a day and focus on a lean protein & low carb diet, then they should lose 1-3 lbs per week.
