weight training with PD
Posted 22 January 2013 - 09:31 PM
recently I asked my PT if weight traing would be good for PD. he said go ahead but don't overdo.Ive been at it for a month now and it seems to have helped along with PT
I found a couple of articles supporting this by googling weight training and PDThe articles state weight traing is better than all other exercises and it stays with you longer..I wasnt able to post them here but they were written last year.I do half hour on my nordic trac and a half hour on weights.

So far it has been an experience.... A mile is a lot farther than I thought LOL! I have a hard time with balance while walking on it. If I don't keep my head facing the machine I get really dizzy and have to get off of it. I have lost 20 lbs..........

My physical therapist had me using some sticks they had at the rehab to walk with in a manner similar to cross country skiing. This was so beneficial to my taking big stride steps and swinging my left arm that I invested in a pair of Nordic walking sticks from an online vendor. They arrived the other day and I had my first outdoor walk with them last night. My goal is to use them for at least 30 minutes a day. I find the planting stick first gives me a visual cue as to where my foot should be. Pushing down on the stick once it's planted helps to build core strength and work the upper body resulting in more exertion while walking. I am doing this in addition to walking the dog for 45 minutes a day and doing about an hour and half of home stretching and pt exercises. Even with this, I went to a meeting the other night where I sat in a metal folding chair for about an hour and a half and I could barely move when I got up. Once I started moving my legs it got easier though. Those chairs are the worst.

I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.
