I started working out recently and I often find my lower back get extremely stiff in the mornings. I typically do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weight training/pilates with resistance.
This morning, I noticed that along with my back, I started noticing pressure in my pelvic area too. This happens occasionally after exercise, but it's very momentary and I didn't pay much attention to it. I had also gotten it checked up in the past and was checked for any prolapse. Does anyone experience something similar? I got my back checked and was only given muscle relaxants- they only work for as long as you take them.
Heya! Office Manager and solo mother of two here. I work a full time job with a part time job and parenting two children ( one is 2 and the other is 7. Opposite sex). I work out on my lunch break and eat when I’m back in the office with tons of snacks. Who else out there is a lunch break builder?
I read that implementing weights to some cardio workouts (example: wearing ankle weights while walking) can burn 5-15% more calories than sans weights. This led me to discover rucking. Basically it’s walking with a weighted backpack on. From what I read it can really add the resistance to a simple walk and will maximize it.
Anybody do this?
Can anyone help me? When I weighed myself on Sunday, I noticed that mfp was basing it on my initial 2013 starting weight of 210 lbs. I went into goals and changed it to reflect when I started dieting this year: 2/28/19 at 185lbs. Now I’m getting a crazy amount of exercise calorie “credits” for steps:
Thur: 13,659 steps ~ 616 cal
Fri: 18,314 steps ~ 733 cal
Sat: 4,765 steps ~ 52 cal
(Changed my starting info on Sunday morning)
Sun: 11,223 steps. ~ 879 cal
Mon: 15,380 steps ~ 1,213 cal
Dear clever internet people: I need you help and advice.
I am a relatively new runner and average 4-10km/week with the odd two-three week period where I don’t run at all.
I have properly fitted shoes, new in January with about 225km on them.
Over the last couple of runs I have noticed that I am getting a discomfort in my left Achilles and lower 1/3 of my calf almost immediately post run. It’s not an issue during the run, just after. It feels really tight and almost “bruised”. Walking down stairs for the first few hours is particularly interesting.
I know the treatment for this is rest, but can anyone suggest some strategies to prevent a recurrence? Or is it just a phase my body is going through and it will eventually go away on its own?
