Strength Training?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all! So I lost a to of weight this year, some of which was fat, and some of which was muscle. Still losing tbh. My bones aren't sitting right, with knees, hips, and lower back being most out of whack and mushy feeling. Any suggestions for easy strength training exercises for someone who's still in the "needs 9-10 hours of sleep min." stage of healing and gets exhausted easily? I'm taking B, D, and K on docs rec if that helps.

Yoga is good for improving strength & it can be as mild or intense as you make it. Holding poses for longer periods of time is more strenuous than not.

A nice beginner class will perhaps help you to gradually increase your muscle mass.

An added benefit - it promotes relaxation while also increasing energy levels.

I like exercise DVD's because I can exercise after the kids are in bed. If you have Netflix, it's a good way to try out exercise DVD's before buying anything. And you can get some through instant watch, too.

Neuropathy has weakened my muscles. So far, I like Leslie Sansone's "You can Do! Pilates". There's about 20 minutes of lighter work and 20 minutes of more challenging using a resistance band. I don't do the second part because I'm concerned the band will pinch my nerves in my feet. I also like "Pick Your Level: Weight Loss Pilates" even though I'm not trying to lose weight. I couldn't finish all the repetitions the first several times through and still can't do all the ab work. But it's easy enough for a beginner to start with.
