Shoes For Elliptical Training
Yes: Increased chance of injury.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: Running with scissors is dangerous. Running in skechers is not. High heels and platforms are only "dangerous" in pregnancy if you fall or twist your ankle. Most people are not comfortable in them later in pregnancy, but they can't cause any real harm to moms or babies. If you are comfortable in them, go ahead and wear whatever you like. Comfort and fit are the most important features.See 3 more doctor answers
I am going to start working out at a gym, so what shoes should I buy running shoes or training shoes?
Varies with activity: It depends on what you are doing in the gym. If you are weight-lifting and doing low-impact cardio (elliptical, biking), then cross-trainers are probably the best choice; but if running shoes feel more light-weight and comfortable, then go for these. If power walking/jogging at the gym, then definitely buy running shoes. You should be fit for either by purchasing at a quality athletic shoestore.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm training for a 5k in November. I get blisters on the back of my heels where my shoes rub against them. How can I alleviate the pain?
Anti-pronation: If you go to a running store and ask to see anti-pronation running shoes, these will potentially address your problem; new balance is just one example of a brand that makes them.
More cardio, but: With the arm movement, easier to achieve cardio benefits with a lower perception of exertion, since you use more muscles. You will tone, but most strength gains go to the legs! Safe and non-traumatic. Great machines!
I use an elliptical for cardio yesterday and did a leg weight training session. Should I use the elliptical today for cardio?
Yes-: You should try and do cardio workout for a half hour or more most days of the week.
With a tailbone injury can you do strength training w weights ie squats, leg press, hip abducter and cardio - elliptical?
Varies: It varies somewhat based on the severity of the injury. If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated.
Depends...: You need to determine what is causing your pain. Podiatrists will examine and treat the cause of your foot problems but can also recommend proper shoes and if inserts are needed to avoid recurrence. The inserts (aka orhtotics) may be over the counter or prescription.
Shoes are just shoes: Shoe therapy is only marginal treatment. Metatarsalgia is a vague term that could be any one or several different problems, therefore, you must find out which specific problem you have not just that general term. Then if the problem can be solved with just padding the shoes can be used.

Depends: Barefoot running something to consider. For many this is felt a means to lower injury rates by strengthening feet and returning to a more natural gait. For others this is just not the way to go due to previous injuries, foot alignment, running gait. If you decide to make the change to barefoot do so with caution- take is slow, consider minimal shoe first, run on soft surface, watch for obstacles.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies with need: Toddlers will do well with rubber skid socks in the house if they wear anything. Outside they need protection from a variety of terrains so the choice may vary. The shoe should meet several basic criteria: Fit: roomy enough but not loose; Flex: flexible enough not to pinch or bind a growing foot; Breathable: avoid solid plastics - feet sweat; Sturdy enough for the terrain; not too heavy.See 1 more doctor answer
