Exercising With Asthma

By Diana Rodriguez Medically reviewed by Lindsey Marcellin, MD, MPH Working out isn't off-limits for people with asthma — in fact, it's recommended. But it requires a little extra effort to prevent an asthma attack. Exercise benefits everyone, and it’s no different for people with asthma. Though you may be afraid to exercise for fear of an asthma attack, you can — and should — be physically active. You just need to take a few precautions and understand how to use exercise to improve your asthma, not make it worse. A sedentary lifestyle isn't recommended for asthma patients. There are numerous health benefits to exercising with asthma "It's important for people with asthma to exercise as much as they can, to stay fit, and to control their weight," says Norman H. Edelman, chief medical officer of the American Lung Association. "Excess weight makes asthma worse." Exercising With Asthma: Getting Started Get the go-ahead before you start … [Read more...]

Get Strong by Squatting

by: Jillian Michaels If you're new to exercise, working out can be intimidating. The trick is to begin with exercises you can build on. Let's start with the legs. After all, they help support our bodies in the most basic of activities — standing and walking! Try wall squats, the building block of all squat variations. Here's how to get started right now. Wall Squat Stand with your back about 1 1/2 feet from a wall, feet hip-width apart, your weight on your heels. Lean back until your shoulders and upper back touch the wall. Now slowly lower yourself (as if you were going to sit on a chair) until your thighs are parallel with the floor and your legs form a 90-degree angle. In the seated position, your back — from the shoulder blades to the lower rib cage — should rest lightly against the wall. Hold this position for as long as you can, stand back up, and repeat. When you've mastered the form, kick it up a notch by adding resistance with hand weights. Once you've … [Read more...]

Finding Your Cardio

Finding Your Cardio...  Haven't found an exercise you absolutely love to do? You've tried them all — ellipticals, rowing machines, treadmills, even the dreaded Stairmaster — and hated every second of it. Well, you're not alone. But that doesn't mean there isn't an exercise out there just for you. Have you ever considered that you just don't like exercising alone? Often, it's the solitary nature of exercise that turns us off. Sometimes we need a support system to keep us moving. Sound like you? Try  joining a group exercise class and find out! If you haven't tryed a Zumba class then maybe you should. It might be what your looking for. Zumba is a freestyle workout. You don't have to have rytheme to Zumba or know how to dance, because it's not a dance class. It is a fun way to exercise. Just try it out! Go to http://www.zumba.com/ and look for a class in your area. Get a group of friends together and go to a class. Email the instructor and ask if you can come try out … [Read more...]
