You and Your Health

 

If the answer to any of the following questions is yes, then you must talk to your Doctor before you start this exercise on this website. This is just so they can advise you of any special limitations you might have.

  1. Do you have a heart condition?
  2. Do you feel pain in your chest when you do any sort of physical activity? For example, walking or climbing stairs.
  3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?
  4. Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?
  5. Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee, or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?
  6. Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water tablets) for your blood pressure or heart condition?
  7. Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?

Warning Signs

 

During the exercise routines, you may experience some discomfort particularly if you haven’t exercised for a while.  This is completely normal.

However pains or any other symptoms that happen during the exercise can be a warning that something is wrong.  If you feel any of the following, you should stop exercising immediately and seek medical advice straight away.

  • Have pain or pressure in your chest or the left side of your neck, shoulder or arm;
  • Feel dizzy or sick
  • Have muscle cramps or spasms
  • Feel any sharp pains in your joints, feet or ankles
  • Notice that your heart starts racing or beating irregularly

Before we get started:

 

  1. Make sure the room you are exercising in is well ventilated and not too warm
  2. Wear loose comfortable clothing, with flat secure foot wear.
  3. Use a stable upright chair on a level surface, preferably without arms. If your chair does have arms, be careful not to knock your elbows!
  4. If you are sitting in a wheelchair, please ensure you have the brakes on.
  5. Have some water close by so you can take regular sips through the exercises.

Finally – golden rule of exercise

 

Start the exercises slowly, take your time and as you get used to the exercises you will become more confident.
