I must admit to some jealousy myself, LOL :mrgreen:

David, don't get us wrong, it's great, more than great actually, you can follow such a demanding exercise program. We are happy for you,inspired by you.

I also think that patients with akinetic rigid PD may have lower levels of tolerance for strenuous exercise as compared to patients with tremor dominant PD.

most patients with YOPD who continue to work for years into their disease, raise kids etc.may find it quite difficult to keep up with ANY exercise program. setting realistic goals and expectations is probably the key.

David does not have a tremor. His issue is rigidity. Perhaps it's because he is only two years in? Still, he could not have done this last year due to fatigue. He got off Mirapex and got on Sinemet and that helped with function, then he got on Amantadine in August and that really helped with fatigue, so it may just be a good season in the life of his PD...
