Crafting the Right Workout Action Plan
Codependency load of Victims of Metabolic Syndrome
Trial and Error Learning vs Rapid convergence
What I have learned about therapeutic lifestyle interventions like exercise has come about by trial and error..... especially given how many different manifestations of T2D are out there
Google/Online is hard and can be inappropriate
Obviously not everything I run across online is good either, but nobody is forcing me to do those like a trainer does(!).
Pains and Damage in Workouts can Kill Progress
Medically Compromised vs Sedentary vs Youth Get-Fitter vs Athletes
working with a personal trainer at a fitness studio caused me some damage, esp to achilles tendons/tendons around ankles, which are still bugging me years later despite seeing & following the advice of an orthopedist. I apparently have short & rather non-stretchy tendons, at least some of them, and shouldn't do what most people do.
Well, it's totally possible that you got stuck with a newbie trainer with no experience of heavily deconditioned/medically compromised/confirmed Sedentarians..... this is definitely a niche market. Possible, but not likely. If this is the experience with the trainer you wrote about on the H&N board it certainly didn't seem to be the case. IIRC, I had cause to mention to you at the time that the idea of working within your ability level was the way to go rather than allowing yourself to be pushed too hard or giving in to a bit of vanity and showing the trainer what a badazz you were.
Use it or lose it to cure aches and frozen limits
I have picked up a few exercises that work well for me, particularly a simple one for my achilles tendons.
Physical Therapists can help retention in workout
Now I work with a couple of physical therapists. While I think they also had me working some injured muscles/tendons too hard (eg, rotator cuffs), they also helped me enormously, particularly with overcoming my lack of balance organ in one ear, my neck & achilles tendon problems, posture, core, general fitness.
