* Should I go every day? Every other day? Two days on w/one day off?
* Anyone with Rheumatoid Arthritis or other disabilities out there and if so, how long did you work out in the beginning?
* What time of day is best to work out?
* How long do you wait after you've consumed food before working out?
* What kind of stretches do you do before getting on the Treadmill? (my favorite machine)
* Do you do any weight lifting? (even if it's very light weights)
* If you do lift weights, how many reps do you complete?
* Is there anything in particular you're sure to do after a workout?
* What do you wear? My shorts always bunch up and become uncomfy.
1. Whatever works for you. If you want to do everyday and you can, then go for it. If I were you I would take it slow and build my way up to see how I feel. Going outside instead of the gym can be nice too if the weather is good. I don't like to be stuck in the gym when it's nice outside.
2. I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, asthma and adrenal problems. I started out slowly and went ahead doing what I could do. I still do weeks then others. I took a break for about two weeks. Now I'm back again this week. You'll just have to see how your body feels. If you aren't feeling well then by all means, take a break.
3. The best time to work out is when you will do it!
4. I wait at least 10 minutes if I want to eat first but usually it's been a little while.
5. I don't stretch before, I stretch after
6. Yes, I weight lift. I LOVE it. I hurt my shoulder and I can't do it now going on three weeks. I feel weird. I want to get back into it.
7. Sets and reps are very personal. You would have to talk to a trainer for that or do your own research. There isn't a one size fits all method.
8. Get a drink and go to the bathroom.
9. I wear wide leg exercise type pants and a t-shirts. I loath shorts and I won't wear anything that shows my legs in public.
So, there is my two cents.
