                well I had to dismantle the gym today due to the weather I brought my bike back in the house but the bowflex is still out in the play room. (cost too much to heat)
                I did do my stretches
                3 miles on the recumbent
                25 push ups
                leg lifts with 5 lbs weights
                25 squats

                  No Tri's or hand function.

                  Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

                    whoa, forestrange, 3 hours - yaah. That must be you in the avatar

                    here is my 4th day in a row posting.....
                    30 min recumb,stationary bike
                    30 wide grip pull ups in sets of 5 alternating with squats - I am so weak in the legs I don't need any extra weight , just body weight
                    supermans, stretching hamstring, and hip rotators.

                    Oh, I need to post that I snowblowed my driveway - 30 minutes yesterday.

                        Way to rock n' roll workout fiends.

                        45 minutes chair dancing
                        30 minutes standing


                        Yowser ForestRanger on 3 hours of Theraband work. WTG!

                        Oh, and soon to be Dr. Danine. Glad you found your way to the pool again. Yay!!!

                        Question on the Therabands. Are the Tbands okay to use each day? I alternate weights, but I'd like to use the bands each day. Yay or nay?

                            yesterday:
                            10 min stair climber in harness - motorized
                            30 min strength training - lower body and core (nautalis machines)
                            10 min rowing machine - all me
                            15 min strength training - left arm and a bit of right shoulder when it felt like joining in
                            10 min arm bike - 5 min forward/5 min backward
                            45 min flyball practice with my dogs - more work than all the rest combined!
                            20 min Estim on right arm

                            I have been working out every 3 days and found that to work best for me. I work out hard the day of my workout and usually late afternoon/early evening. what I find is that the day after my workout my spasticity is gone but my legs are too weak to walk and my neuro pain is a bit worse BUT the following 2 days my spasticity is perfect for walking without bothering me the rest of the time and my neuro pain is almost gone and I feel terrific. so 2 out of 3 days my body is cooperative.
                            when I was working out every 2nd day I never got to the "good" days.

                            PS - I had cheesecake and eggnog for breakfast this morning so maybe I better fit another workout in somewhere! the holidays are so hard on the waistline!

                              alex - that is great - you really are creative and go after the muscles that want to cooperate in a lot of ways. I can relate to increase in NP pain from working out, TMAZ had a thread about that recently called Exercise--Pain , I think.

                                Wednesday workout
                                65 min elliptical trainer avg hr 120bpm
                                30 min stationary recumb. bike avg hr 109bpm
                                35 min handcycle on mag trainer in garage interval w/o 1 min on/1 min off x 10, 10 min warmup and cool down
                                walk up 2 flights of stairs holding on banister.

                                For those who are unfamiliar with interval training ( I apologize to those who know) , here is what a interval workout looks like. 1 min very hard effort, alternating with 1 min rest. Repeat 10 times with 10 min. warm up and cool down. I can't fully recover in a minute so you see a nice trend upward of heart rates. I am happy with it although next time, I can push it harder....
                                It is a great way to get a quality workout in a short amount of time plus it is more interesting than just grinding along listening to the garage freezer hum.
