2013 Fitness thread
#1
In reading through the resolution thread there seemed to be a recurring theme about weight loss, fitness and generally improving our health. I thought a thread where we can share ideas and tips for improving overall health may be a good place to start.

We can all use some accountability IMO. What about posting beginning height and weight?

Who's in?

Does anyone have ideas for cardio workouts for someone with damaged/arthritic knees? I've been using vitamin D3 which has reduced knee pain but running is out of the question.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Sounds like a great idea Jeff....and does the D3 actually work for the knee's?

I just started taking glucoscemene (sp) supposed to help with bad knees

I have a Concept2 rowing machine. Great full body workout and has little impact in your knees.

Have any of you tried Knox Gelatine?..My cousin got on a kick about it..Cause he used it for a tenis elbo thing...But i never had any issues with that or knees..But my freind did..And was buying some pain meds and vits d3 over at the market...I asked him if he ever heard of or tried knox? He said no..I told him about my cousin and how much he said it made his joints feel....So he said hell..wouldn't hurt....And got some...2 weeks later he calls me and says...His knees never felt so good in years...And just takes it in a glass instead of pain meds now...Not sure if it works for everyone..But they all sure believe in it...Worth a shot i guess.

Gelatin comes from collagen, which is part of the bones and connective tissue...but gots too be real gelatin not the fake jello stuff.

I've spent the better part of my life trying to stay in good shape, 25 years in the Marines will do that to you. After retirement more than 5 years ago now and I've gained about 25 pounds. I have some ortho problems as well. One of the best home fitness machines I've used is the total gym. It's easy on the body and you can get a great, fast workout, cardio and muscle toning in about 30 minutes. I bought one used a few years ago for $100 on craigslist. You can't go wrong!

I took glucosemine before I switched to D3. I have way more good days with the D3 than I did with glucosemine.

That's what I have said over the years... I'll NEVER have a 6 pack but I'd like to reduce the full barrel to a pony keg! LOL

I like the Motovation!!! Smile

Jeff,
I think you can do Upper body Cardio Excersise to get the heart rate up. that will have no impact on the knees!!

I won't mind joining this weight loss post!!
I lost 50lbs last spring, by just changing my diet, but my body got used to it, and I put on about 40 lbs scince the summer back on.
I did sign up at the planet fitness down the street its open 24 hrs, now I just need to make an hour to get there.
my wife wants me to join WeightWatchers with her, her work has a Family incentive, its free as long as we can each loose 20+ LBS and keep it off, and in December we will get $10 per pound lost upto the 20 lbs, and an additional $50 for being non smokers.
Now thats my motovation!!! Big Grin

Jeff, Count me in. I used to race triathlons but over the last 3 years I've transformed a 6 pack into Heniken mini kegs.

Maybe I need to sign up/pay for some races and then would have to start training again for said races lest I die a few strokes into the swim after the start.

As fas as cardio with bad knees, swimming is great on the joints. But you have to swim with a purpose and with goggles for it to work.
