Cardio Mix: You cannot target the abdomen or legs specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose, then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

Treadmill is safer!: I'm delighted to hear that you are exercising, or at least thinking about your exercise options. Walking and/or running on a treadmill are adaptable exercises for most people. If you are skateboarding, remember to wear a helmet and wrist, elbow, and knee pads. Spinning (cycling to music in a supervised class) is one of my favorites: low joint impact and no risk of falling or being hit by a car! ...Read more

Use ice, rest and support. If it goes longer than 3 weeks, seek medical attention from a Podiatrist or ankle specialist. ...Read more
