Sharing Knowledge Is An Invaluable Experience
Three miles. I took my time and it took about 40 minutes. Guess I better do this and ride my bike all I can coming up as there probably won't be a lot of beautiful days like this left.
Actually, remember that you can increase difficulty with the bands by moving your feet farther apart, so that it decreases the amount of band you have to work with, thereby increasing the resistance. But enough on that, you just need to get the needed materials to get started. Everyone can have determination. Mine was caused by not wanting my wife to kick my butt for not taking care of the kidney she gave me. LOL!! After transplant, I felt like I was shot out of a cannon, I guess because of the large amounts of prednisone. I am not in as good of shape as I was when I first had my transplant, but I have a plan set up to get myself in the best possible shape I can coming up soon. I have tried to incorporate more exercises that have a cardio effect into my workouts. For example, something as simple as jumping jacks, step ups and ball throwdowns. They get your heart pumping when you are doing the strength training exercises.
Good for you Cisco. I mentioned you to my husband today regarding your determination.
Yes, I worked out before transplant with my brother. If I were you and you want to do a home workout, get a Swiss ball, some bands with varying degrees of resistance. It is possible to do ball crunches on the ball, and if you put the band under the ball, you can also do chest presses. If you stand up and put your feet on the bands, you are able to do biceps curls. There will be some instructions that come with the ball which will give you other exercises to do with it. The other thing that you can do is to Google band and Swiss ball exercises. That should get you started. Good luck! You will have to start slowly, with small amounts of weight, but you can do it.
I so envy yoy and your workouts, Cisco! I have been in a wheelchair for about two years now, because of the neuropathy in my legs after being diabetic for 34 years. Since my transplant three years ago (My son gave me a kidney) I haven't gained weight from my medications or what I eat - I've gained inches in my abdoman since I'm not walking like I used to.! It occurs to me looking at your workout regiman that I could do the exercises sitting down, and probably the ones kneeling on the ground as well. Were you doing your workouts before your transplant? I really don't want to be a tired, fat, wheel-chair bound woman! I want to keep myself as healthy as I can be! Let me know how you got started, and how to get started. Thanks for the inspiration!
This week has been beautiful. Real goldie locks weather --not too hot not too cold awww just right. You are amazing 3 miles wow. Way to go keep it up!!
