Recovering Strength After Intense Exercise
Recovery nutrition: If you mean how you can recover more quickly while minimizing delayed onset muscle soreness, eat or drink within 15-30 min post exercise. Carbs to protein in a 4:1 ratio is best. Suggestions include fruit smoothies, pb&j, sandwich, chocolate milk or hot chocolate (great in cold weather). If you'll be eating a regular meal in that time frame, that will work too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sometimes I slack on my PT exercises for chondromalacia. It leads to a bad flare and takes longer to strengthen. What damage am I doing? How bad?
Hard to say: The severity of the chondromalacia can only be determined with an MRI or surgery. However, at your age, it's unlikely that your damage is moderate or severe. Flares of pain can mean inflammation, and not necessarily damage. You are obviously learning the importance of sticking with your rehab. A brace can help as well.

I have poor endurance and can only last about 15 minutes when working out. How can I improve this?
How can I prepare my body (I'm 68) for a long 9 hour flight and 15 days of walking tours when I have Spinal stenosis. When I overdo walking, I suffer?
Spinal stenosis: That is a difficult task. Lumbar spinal stenosis causes back and leg pain with walking (neurogenic claudication). Fortunately most walking tours have frequent stops to discuss what you are viewing. Take a cane that folds out into a small stool so you can sit and flex your back to decompress the pinched nerves. Do stretches in the morning and evening. Add ice to the back at night. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
