Yes: You are nicely combining three different forms of aerobic conditioning exercises. Rowing and cycling activities are heart friendly as well as joint friendly; good exercise for the cardiovascular system without beating up your joints. Of the three, the treadmill has more impact on your knees and ankles as you run. Would advise keep in the treadmill flat as opposed to inclined. Easier on the knees. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)
Warm up vs cool down: Active warm up is ideal prior to intense workouts. Depending upon how aggressive your yoga routine is, it might serve as warm up. With that said, cooling down is also a good idea after intense exercise too. Bottom line, there's no proof that any specific exercise routine is better than another for warm up or cool down, aside from general statements. ...Read more

M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats,lunges,& exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?
No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more
Will physical theropy repair a small lebral tear after an anterior shoulder dislocation? Because i want to play crossfit (overhead sport)
No: A labral tear will not heal on its own. Therapy can help with the pain so if you are clinically not having recurrent instability and just dealing with pain at this point i think therapy is appropriate. Any recurrent instability episode however or continued pain is going to be best managed with surgical repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How would I calculate the calories burned from weight training? (deadlifts, bench, squats, etc...)
Apps: There is actually a pretty cool app called myfitnesspal available for free on iOS and Android (methyltestosterone). I used this when I had to lose weight safely for a sport by a certain time period. It allows you to calculate in calories and nutrients in, and your exercises are searchable. It won't be exact, but it gives a good estimate and it does work well. It's free, you've got nothing to lose... but weight! ...Read more
