Common Questions and Answers about Weight training exercises back


550943 tn?1330731180 Does anyone know of a good source of information i can get a hold of for continuing weight training during the first trimester of pregnancy? I know there are benefits and want to do it properly. Background: I want to TTC again after my miscarriage and I am currently walking five days a week and weight training three days a week.
Avatar f tn I would recommend doing a full body weight training at lease 3 to 4 days a week with cardiovascular training at the beginning or end to maximize your training. The reason that I say that is because wieght training will have a lasting calorie burn 36-42 HOURS while cardio just 2 hours. This is why you must use weights. Now your backside, different story. I would recommend that you would start with lighter sets until your body gets accustom.
Avatar f tn I wear a pedometer, to keep track of how much I'm moving around, and I've started physical therapy to work on muscles to support my back and my atrophied quads so that I can try to get back to my latest love in exercise; water aerobics. It's not quite aerobic, but it can work your whole body as easy or as hard as you're able. I used to go to 24 Hour Fitness an average of 3 times a week, warming up a little on the treadmill (their's have fans built in), then going to class.
Avatar m tn I guess my real question is whether anyone has had working out CAUSE any symptoms? It is a really strange coincidence that as soon as I start weight training, this symptom happens after so long of being fine. Everywhere I read, they say weight training is great for MS between gaining stability and muscle control. I really don't want it making me worse. Thank you!
1157811 tn?1263835094 I have a lower back injury that is a few years old. Doing normal activites that require even slight bending, such as doing dishes causes pain. I was wondering if there are any back strengthening exercises that I can do to build up some strength to where doing daily chores can become less painful. Thanks!
1963845 tn?1376034409 Once you have lost weight (and even as part of your weightloss regime) you can do toning exercises that will shape and define your muscles. Dips are good for underarms, if you don't have weights to use.
Avatar n tn I do not feel any kind of pain or strange heart condition but there is something that I do not know what means. I recently started a joga training and at the first part of the exercises we usually try to relax. While doing this I feel the slow and soft waving of my body, which is my heartbeat actually. Can it mean anything like high BP, or somethig ? And is it normal when you can feel your heartbeat while relaxing ( if you focus on it ) ?
Avatar m tn This was my first ever experience of weight training exercises and on the first day I tried almost everything I could, on my own, since no instructor was present that day. It was alright until I did a round of "Sit Ups" when I experienced a sudden sharp pain somewhere between my neck and right shoulder. I didn't go to gym on the next day. I applied some "wintergreen oil" balm and the pain subsided. I continued from the third day.
Avatar n tn You need not worry about his back, shoulder as long as there are no symptoms developing due to his exercises. These exercises would help in further strengthening his back muscles which will help stabilized his shoulder and spine. He should be doing his exercise within his limit set and should not cross his limits. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
790728 tn?1275328916 No, I lay down on the back, put arms/hands behind my head and lift my head+body till sitting position, then go down, then repeat - so, 40 times easily, till 100 no problem. My BMI is now normal, I've just lost some kilos, but wonder about my muscle tonus. The question is - does it mean my belly muscles are OK or do I need more training? In case I do - which one? To increase it till 200?
Avatar n tn If you want to do some exercise then you may choose to do low intensity weight training to maintain your body shape for that time. You are also try some and NSAID painkiller like Advil before exercise. Keep yourself well hydrated and decrease the number of repetitions for a while. Take rest between exercises. You may apply some ice to the back of scalp and neck. I hope this helps, take care.
Avatar n tn does anyone know any exercises to flatten the stomach, give you firm, non flabby arms, give you jiggle free legs and firm legs, work the shoulders too, and work the fat off the back/ back of shoulders. it would also be gr8 if you could tell me some weight trainin exercises to build more and shape the buttocks, thighs, breasts, and hips, and have a a tiny trim waist??? lol...trying to achieve a perfect body, lol.
Avatar f tn I have osteoporosis but cannot take any of the known meds since I had an allergic reaction to Fosamax. I would like to do weight training and find some exercises for my core, but don't know where to look. I have two herniated discs in my neck and carpal tunnel. I cannot afford to go to a gym since I am unemployed.
Avatar m tn I was ok for about 18 years but recently I pulled a muscle and could not do my running routine after lifting and that’s when it came back. I’m back in full strength but the head pressure is not going away no matter what I do . It’s been 2 months now and as soon as I wake up it is there. I never heard of anyone else with such symptoms and the doctors I went to a while back had no clue. Can’t say I blame them. This is freaky. Let me know if you can help.
Avatar n tn Besides riding my bike, what other exercises should I be doing? I have a weight bench for leg extensions and curls. Would that be beneficial? I am an otherwise healthy 43 yr old male at 6' and 150 lbs. Advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
Avatar f tn You cannot spot-reduce fat content in specific areas of the body. To lose weight in your target areas, you must strive to lose overall body weight. As your body fat percentages lower, so will the fat in your target area. You should do 30 to 60 minutes of cardio daily. Depending on your fitness level, you can run, jog, briskly walk, cycle, swim or perform aerobics.
Avatar f tn I/m sorry about your TB related issues and the weight gain. I believe a modified weight training regiment will help you with muscle toning and increased metabolism, without affecting your breathing much. Start with light resistance/weights and go from there. Another thing you can consider is using a vibration machine at a low to medium intensity.
Avatar f tn Meaning I can't do a lot of exercises bc it'll put too much strain on my back. Does anybody know any excises that'll help me lose weight in my stomach that won't strain my back? Please help!
Avatar f tn Thanks to Patrick, definitely I will walk more and stop the weight lifting exercise, as because of those weight exercise I went back into a Crisis with my Myatenia Gracias. Thanks God and with the increase of the Inmuran medication I am feeling a little better and hope to completely recover from this Crisis withing a month, so I can start doing more walking in order to prevent more.... Ostosporosis.
Avatar f tn Hi! Common causes of weight gain like overeating, lack of exercise, diabetes, hypothyroidism have to be ruled out in your case. You must then look for other causes. One is water retention due to low serum protein. This along with anemia can cause unexplained weight gain. Adrenal gland problems are the other cause. Cushing’s syndrome should be looked for. The kidney function too should be assessed. Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain.
Avatar n tn You should try having her take swimming classes since swimming can help strengthen her legs as well the rest of her body. Weight lifting at 10 years old probably wouldn't be recommended since that seems too young as she is still growing.
1925822 tn?1333709217 not sure if u were following the Wednesdays weight inn.....but we have exercises for the brain as well as the body...walking is the best thing for us and walking barefoot is helpful...as u can feel the ground underneath..... Do try tossing a ball in the air and catching it with the opposite hand and things like that...I will continue to post ideas that should help us...I am getting all of the ideas from a Dr and relaying them to u all here...
Avatar f tn Don’t work your back and core muscles two days in a row. For example, if you work the core and back on Wednesday, wait until at least Friday to work the muscle groups again. If you google these exercises you should be able to see how they are done. Before doing anything get the OK from your doctor!!
Avatar f tn If you go on a diet you will risk putting the weight back on but losing weight fast is not the reason people gain weight back. That comes from lack of discipline and motivation. I lost well over 100 pounds in less than six months and have now kept the weight off for over 8 years. If you want to have a healthy nutrition plan you will need to change your habits..... Permanently.
Avatar f tn Weight loss for a person depends not only on physical activity like exercises, but it is much more dependent on food habits. Along with your exercise you must maintain the following diet to lose weight. • Your major intake should be fruits and vegetables.
Avatar f tn Eating every three to four hours prevents dips in blood sugar levels that can trigger hunger and overeating. Do full-body strength training workouts to develop lean muscle mass and increase metabolism. Perform exercises that recruit every large muscle group such as lat pulldowns, biceps curls, triceps press, overhead shoulder press, lunges and push-ups. Execute each exercise for three sets of 15 repetitions.
Avatar m tn Thyroid conditions are some of those that can be under control this week and out of control next week, due to changes within and/or demands placed on the body from day to day. Physical or emotional demands during military training and/or exercises, deployment, etc can be excruciating.
Avatar n tn But any weight or resistance training I do on Mon, Wed, Fri to give my body a chance to recover on Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun. That may have something to do with your weight not moving since it looks like you're doing it every day. I know that since we started it, I've definitely toned up and the weight has moved. Ariesoal- I drink water during my workout, I go through a 24oz bottle during my 1 hour session, which I guess (according to my math) is 6oz every fifteen minutes if you average it out.
