I'm new to this group but wanted to ask. How do you excersize? I have been trying to walk but I also have COPD so it's been hard, I used to be in such great physical shape but in the last few years I have become very overweight. I was just wondering how everyone else excercises when your joints hurt all the time.
What about one of the foot/cycle machines? They are working for my friend-esp if it is hard to walk outside. Keeps you movong and you can do it in the cool AC. Just a thought-good luck:)
I walk and I remember how little I could do at first. Had surgery and had to start though stopped all exercising with RA. Now I can go 20 - 30 min decent pace not real fast. I also found Volturen which has helped some
Honestly I push myself really hard because my fitness goals are super important to me. Lately I get some degree of relief when i walk so that helps things out also.
Pool exercises work well and a lot less stress on joints. They have arthritis classes at YMCA s and other gyms with indoor pools so you can go year round.
