Is Mountain Climbing Safe I Want To Do It At 50
Yes, definitely: The most important thing to remember when exercising while pregnant is to stay well hydrated. We used to think that pregnant women shouldn't get their heart rates elevated, but that is no longer the case. Most important is to drink a lot of water. So much water that your urine is clear/white. And drink while you're exercising. You burn more calories and get hotter when you're exercising. ...Read more
Yes: It is good for you to continue to exercise while pregnant. Any exercise that doesn't involve a high risk of falling or getting hit in the belly is fine. With any exercise, you need to drink water throughout. You also have to be willing to back off if you start feeling headaches, nausea or dizziness that indicate your body thinks you're overdoing it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I want to go to the Caribbean. I'm not pregnant but do want to have another child soon. Is it safe to go bearing Zika in mind?
Plan birth control: If you really need to go to any area where Zika has been found, please plan to use great birth control for at least the 9mo before you go through the visit plus 6mo. Zika seems to love eating fetal brain cells but often causes only a minor illness in older children & adults. Get infected once (not pregnant) and you would then be immune & future visits not at risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No, it's not: Whether it is SAFER than cigarettes, however, is another question. It most likely is safer, because it has fewer dangerous chemicals than burnt tobacco does, but it still has a lot of unknowns. Different e-cigs and devices for delivering the nicotine come with different liquid propellants, and many of these have formaldehyde and other toxins. Best thing is to quit. 2nd best-nicotine patches etc. ...Read more
They offer aqua zumba at the gym. The water temp is 87 degrees. I will be 30 weeks pregnant this Thursday. Is it safe for me to do the class?
Sure: Nothing better than exercise in an external water environment which takes he pressure off of the fetus in the internal water environment(amniotic fluid). Pregnancy exercises such as this increase your fitness level to endure and facilitate labor by shortening it during the 2nd stage(pushing). If your bag of water ruptures, then tell your OB MD immediately and stop the exercise program. ...Read more

Can you tell me if i want to progress faster physically. Is it good to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?
I think so...: With resistance (weight) training. Limit carbs. For fastest results, do the slow carb diet or south beach diet at the same time use your choice of whey protein drinks/powders. Of course, follow this advice only when cleared by your doctor as certain disease states would not support this.

I have broken my middle toe & am a fitness instructor, how long before it is safe to do high impact exercises on it eg: jumping and lunges?
Can you tell me if I do 100 sit ups a day, 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening, how long will it be until i get abs?
Diet is key: You'll develop the mass of these muscles more effectively by doing cable crunches 3 sets of 10 maximum resistance daily. You also need to diet -- eat enough lean protein to stay in muscle-building mode, a low-calorie balanced diet, and get used to eating only to satisfy real hunger. ...Read more
Maybe...: Only your doctor can answer this for sure after a thorough evaluation.

See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I have the virus Labyrinthitis. Is it safe to exercise with this virus? Running? Swimming? Stationary bike? I don't want to make it worse. Thank you!
Be aware: There are many different viruses that cause Labyrinthitis like herpes viruses, influenza, measles, rubella, mumps, polio, hepatitis, Epstein-Barr(mono) and more. When you can start exercising really depends on your symptoms and the severity of your symptoms. Even if your symptoms are mild, you'd probably want to minimize heavy motion dependent exercise and ease into your chosen form of exercise. ...Read more
I had some tylenol (acetaminophen) at 4:30pm. I want to drink alcohol at 9:30pm. Is this safe? Most people recommend 2-6 hours, just want to be sure.
Should be fine: Alcohol and Acetaminophen compete in the liver for the process that breaks down the toxic features of each. As long as you are not overloading these sites, you are safe. Chronic alcohol use can damage these areas and make the remaining sites have to work overtime. If you do as you say, you are helping your liver work for you. ...Read more
Going soon to a vacation in Canada (-6h). When I will return home (+6h), is it okay to take naps while jet-lagged? Are alarm clocks a good choice?
Yes: Travelling West to East is rough. I find the best way to readjust is to stay up until your usual bedtime locally, and then resume a regular schedule. On average, your internal clock will adjust by about 1-2 hours per day, until you have fully adapted to the local time. That being said, naps won't cause any harm. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Can you tell me if I do 100 sit ups a day, 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening, how long will it take until i get abs?
Depends : 100 sit ups a day will strengthen your abdominal muscles in about 90-120 days. However, if you are asking about tone and definition of the "washboard stomach, " this is much more than sit-ups. This has more to do with diet than exercise. If you have belly fat, that needs to go away to achieve the "desired look.". ...Read more
