Are: Are you eating enough a few hours before your spinning class? If not you may be dealing with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This can cause the symptoms you described. Try eating a meal at least two hours before working out and monitor for effect. Also, consider seeing your doctor for a physical to make sure there are no underlying conditions that are contributing or causing your symptoms. All the best. ...Read more

Should I ride a spin cycle with a bad L4 L5 or a more conventional stationery bike?

Should I ride a spin cycle with a bad L4 L5 or a more conventional stationery bike?

Whatever tolerated: Any aerobic activity you tolerate is fine. No harm is likely even if it hurts. Just experiment and find what you enjoy and tolerate best.

What is a good exercise bike and fitness routine for me at 60?

22 min a day!: Studies show that 150 min of aerobic exercise a week, divided by at least 5 days is optimal for health. So, that's just 22 min daily, 7 days per week, 25 min/day 6 days per week, or 30 min per day 5 days per week. Any exercise that is non-stop and gets you breathing a bit harder and feeling a little warm is great. So, bike, walk (briskly), swim, treadmill, a class, etc. Are all great! ...Read more

Walking at a slow pace, in which you can speak comfortably in sentences, is probably fine. It is important to consult with your surgeon on this issue. ...Read more
