I've been promising a HIIT and MS article, and I wanted to let folks know that it is in process. I'm pretty detail-oriented (read: anal), so it is taking time. Hope to get it done by next month!

Default Heat

Hi Beth, about 16c average but heading up on the forecast to mid 20c so it will be harder to exercise just got to knock it back a bit.
Still keep moving doing some extra Psoas stretching at the moment to see if it may help with my balance which is shockingly poor anything that may help.

Great article/guide!...really great. I needed explicit help on how to HIIT it in this new world I now live in. I had loved/crazy loved tabata & it just started not feeling so great...then diagnosis explained so much...since DDay I tried to get back on my beloved keiser spin bike but just could not figure out how to adjust & so I put my bike away... your guide/article inspired me to bring my bike back, setup 4 fans, turn the AC down, wear my Cooling vest before....& I was so thrilled to have a guide in my hands (literally) & I did it!

The advice I found here has been fabulous... thanks so very much!

Now Iím off to make some music playlists for this new spin choreography!

Thumbs up

I appreciate all the suggestions you have included here in the text to help us avoid injury and make reasonable, if not surprising progress.

Default Quick update

It's been a year since by fall/broken arm/surgery and I'm healing and in the gym almost every day. I'm just about back to where I was pre-accident.

I rotate upper body strength, lower body strength and cardio days. I can do intense sets of cardio if I keep it to 8 minutes each. I allow 5 minutes of recovery between sets, still take and aspirin, and wet the back of my tshirt to promote cooling. Hope you can too.

Good job Hondo! I'm sure your setback must have been discouraging but I am so glad to read that you got back on the program. I wonder how different MS would be as a disease if everyone could find the time and motivation to follow a similar routine. I salute you!

Gotta say Hondo, I do believe you have the formula for doing this stuff exactly right. Nice job.

Default Successful new year to all

Larry,
Thanks for the kind words. I really do believe that short bouts of intense cardio followed by rest, for me its 8 min on and 5-6 off, does the trick. I'm thrilled by the results and can see functional improvements on an almost weekly basis. After all, that's what we all want. It doesn't seem to matter whether its an elliptical, a stationary bike, rowing machine, a rope pulling machine or a stair climber. At this duration I can do 5-7 sets and I can push for slightly higher intensity week after week. Please try this in 2020 if you haven't. Thanks!

Default C19 hiccup

So our gym in Washington closed last week per our governor's direction to control C19. I had been working to increase exercise duration. I was increasing 15 seconds more every 2-3 weeks. I was up to cardio sets of 10:30. I'll pick it up again when we get back to normal.

For now, I'm alternating upper and lower body weight work with dumbells at home. 5 squat sets on one day with dumbells. Next day 3 sets of bench press, curls, incline bench, shoulder presses with dumbells. The key is to DO SOMETHING EVERY DAY. Don't let a day go by without focused exercise activity. If you work hard enough, you can regenerate neural activity. Otherwise you will lose function. It's a no brainer. Stay safe.
