Losing weight by mountain biking

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight by mountain biking


Avatar m tn Hiya, You probably think that losing weight involves hardcore exercise which can be so strenuous and tiring, however even just 15 mins of stationary cycling (for example) can make a big difference long- term. Stationary biking, cycling, running, treadmill, dancing, jogging... There is so much that can be done and is so easy, you can even do them while watching TV or listening to music. 15 mins a day and a healthy diet with slightly smaller portions will make a difference.
Avatar n tn Can jogging (40 min a day), biking (not mountain biking), lifting (6kg weight), push-ups or abs exercises cause retinal tears or RD? I am high myopic (-31) with lattice deg. and have PVD right now. I have very low blood pressure and also very fat because afraid of doing sports. I am 25. Thanks very much.
1478333 tn?1287401534 Most of the people losing weight chose brisk walking, and others started swimming or biking. The average activity level per week was 208 minutes in the first year and 189 minutes per week at the end of the three-year study. Another study in China showed that increasing physical activity can reduce the risk of develpoing diabetes by 46%.
Avatar n tn I continued to do all of the things I was told I would never do like running, skiing, heavy weight lifting, mountain biking for the following 20 yrs until the pain and function required additional surgeries. A few years ago I was at the point where I had to live a "no impact" life style. I have adjusted well with cycling and moderate mountain biking.
Avatar n tn Have you tried using an inhaler about 30 minutes before exercise to see if it makes a difference? A pulmo could also check you for EIA. If you are just out of shape, you should see improvement if you go slowly with your training... If it's asthma, and you don't treat it, you probably won't.
Avatar f tn Also, he came home tonight and went on a bike ride because he's "out of shape" and I LOVE mountain biking so it ***** that I can't go and that he's losing weight and getting in shape and I'm going to be trying to get into shape throughout the summer while taking care of a baby too and he'll be able to out-bike me lol
Avatar m tn Background - I'm a 54 y/o man. Very active, mountain biking, dirt bke riding & racing. Slightly overweight 5'9' and 195 lbs.(in shape normal weight is around 180lbs). I used to lift weight quite a bit , but not much lately. Starting on the P90X exercise program (last week) to get back in shape and lose a few pounds. My issue is that for the past several months I had a dull pain in my arm pit.
Avatar n tn Well, a couple days ago I was mountain biking, and and now I'm having terrible lower stomach cramps, and I'm bleeding from the vaginal area.The seat was terribly uncomfortable, and i was aching "down there" while I was biking I've never had sex, but while masturbating I tore the hymen. I was wondering if I should be alarmed? Should I see a doctor?
Avatar m tn Ten days ago I did some heavy mountain biking, something I don't do often so I wake up with sore legs and back, etc. Four days later (6 days ago) I had protected sex with a girl but and gave me unprotected oral for about 30 seconds up to a minute. Over the last two days I've been noticing some clear discharge from my penis and some tingling sensation at the top.
Avatar f tn was) an avid exerciser - skiing moguls, tennis, mountain biking, running, weight lifting, white water kayaker. I have stress incontinence with a grade 2/3 cystocele. I have been trying kegels, PT, electrical stim, etc and have had some improvement with the stress incontinence but think that my cystocele has worsened - I now feel a bulge. I have searched and searched the Internet hoping to find somebody who continues to exercies (and not just walking and pilates) with or without surgery.
Avatar f tn I think its like most things with pregnancy do at your own risk kind of thing. If your bot mountain biking uou should be ok lol. I am sure a stroll around the block with your son is not going to hurt anything.
Avatar m tn I would not advise any kind of training for the next 6-8 weeks (including biking) especially exercises that involve weight bearing or stress on the legs; after which, activities may be ‘gradually’ resumed and you should be able to resume your normal training schedule in 12-16 weeks, though in a few cases it may take longer. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hi! I want to know which kind of exercise is good for losing weight and how many times a week.
Avatar n tn Im a 34yo male that has gain alot of weight over the couple of years and i also maturbate weekly. I was wondering do maturbation cause your penis to downsize or being overweight is the reason.

I love mountain biking and it has become the best sport i ever did. I recently though started to rock climb. I want to just make sure at 27 years old I will not drop dead pushing myself!
Avatar m tn I was hoping to re-open this thread really quick, but should mountain biking be avoided for those with high myopia?
Avatar n tn I weight train regularly and 2 weeks ago I began a cardio program alternating Stationary Bike, Mountain Biking and Jogging. I have not really done any jogging since about 1992. I jogged for a mile and a half twice and the popping an pain began. I only have the pain and popping when walking. In the last 2 weeks I worked my legs twice doing squats, lunges, leg extensions, dead lifts and leg curls. I also continued doing cardio on a trainer. It does not pop when working out or using the bike.
Avatar m tn The fact that you work a desk job and recently toke up mountain biking, is a big possibility. Your body is not used to physical exercise and as such gets tired very quickly and start to ache from the new exercise. The joints especially, is not being used to the jerking and bouncing of the bike. Other than that, you might think of... - Exhaustion ... Did you perhaps rush to finish all of your work in order to be able to go on leave?
Avatar f tn I am a 60 yr young woman who used to be a professional dancer and has exercise since childhood through adulthood. I was Mountain Biking this last week, as I always do, and after a while without any apparent reason my heart rate started to climb and it reached 200 bpm and started to fluctuate going down and going up and stayed like that for around 30 minutes until it stay at its normal rate. This happened once before last year exactly the same.
Avatar m tn After mountain biking in the countryside I get a sore throat, I can taste metallic or blood in the mouth, but there is no blood there. I don't get this walking, even walking up a mountain, just cycling. When on the bike my nose starts running especially now during winter, when sat at home, it feels like mucus going to my lungs making me have chesty cough. I told the doctor about it two years ago, I told them I feel faint after going up hill.
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn Losing as much as 18 pounds in one month is not a healthy way to lose weight and chances are, if you do lose that quickly, you'll gain back as soon as you start eating normal again.
Avatar n tn Whenever I am exposed to any sort of vibration, the skin directly being vibrated itches intensely. When I got mountain biking, my forearms itch. When I sit in a jacuzzi or hot tub, the area of my back that is hit with the 'massaging' jets itches. Is there a common name for this type of condition? Is there any cure for this? How many people are afflicted with this type of ailment?
Avatar n tn Posted By Kevin McBride on January 07, 1999 at 14:37:42: I have a ruptured disk at L4-L5. Two years ago an MRI showed it was herneated and a Dr. suggested a microdiskectomy. I wasn't in intense pain, and rehabilitated myself back to skiing and mountain biking. Unfortunatly several months ago the pain returned and a new MRI shows a rupture. OK I'm in pain and ready for surgery. New doc says diskectomy but he dosen't do microdiskectomy's.
Avatar m tn I, too, have something very similar happen to me after riding my mountain bike. Rather than using the narrower, very firm racing-style seat that it came with, before i took it out of the bike shop I upgraded to a slightly wider and softer touring-style seat specifically designed for males. However, after riding for 30 minutes, I also get the numbness and tingling you describe for several minutes. It would have been much worse, I think, had I not changed out the seat.
Avatar n tn Just last night I was able to start straightening and then today I was mountain biking and I fell on it and it hurts and looks swollen again. I can still make a fist but it is very painful.
