    Go to a yard sale & buy a bowling ball. Use it as a medicine ball. Some of the strongest muscles in your body involve twisting. Move the ball from waist down through your legs & raise it up "like hiking a football," then raise it up behind your head & rotate/twist and stretch your body 1st on one side and then the other. Then, move the ball outside of one leg, raise and hold; then, slowly bring the ball up & over the opposite shoulder, rotate/twist, stretch and hold. Do the opposite side. Number of reps. are what you feel up to. For me, this is fantastic core exercise.
    Throw in some curls or tricep exercise as desired. I mess around with small duck-pin balls for hand strength, occasionally, as well. Works different muscles than weights. - 9/9/2015 11:19:57 AM

    It is hard for me to move and walk allot because I had surgery on my back with hardware,
    that's what the doc. calls it when you have allot of metal.
    I also had surgery on my left foot first, then I had one on me right, then another on my right
    again, and I was getting better and I tripped on my walker wheel and broke my ankle. So
    I really can't run or jump. I'm just thankful that I can sometimes holding on to my walker. - 7/4/2015 5:28:34 PM

    I have had a mild heart attack and have a triple A I am still in the dark as to how much exercise I can do I have just about finished 36 hours of cardio rehab and will be on my own for exercise all I've been told by my Vascular surgeons Nurse is to watch my blood pressure I take medication for high blood pressure and have had no problems. Any advice on how to monitor my blood pressure and what amount of weight I can use for strength training, I am 69 years old and am over weight by 20 lbs.

    Thank you Bill Acebes - 12/25/2014 8:40:58 AM

    Hi There,

    Why is it that when we view the Sparks exercise (s) it never tells you how many
    to do and /or how many sets? e.g. tricep exercise, shows us the exercise but
    that's all...maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. Thanks - 11/12/2014 10:33:37 PM

    Thanks for throwing more light on weight loss.
