Tough Mudder?! Anyone?

Hey everyone,

I was just curious if any fellow pwMS have ever done the Tough Mudder competition and what their experiences were with it. I know its a little extreme, but I kinda feel I want to give it a shot while I still can.

Thanks!!! :razz:

Hate gyms, not exercise? Here's a great option...

Like the subject implies, I've got nothing against exercise but the very last place I want to do it is in a gym. So I'm willing to invest in exercise equipment when I know I'll use it (and have somewhere to put it!)...

For several years we had a treadmill and then switched to an elliptical trainer for lower impact. Two years ago my herniated disc acted up and made even that a problem, and ...

Muscle spasms

I think we all know that MS can do just about anything to you, so almost any symptom I experience I tend to attribute to MS, my default diagnosis. But I'm not 100% sure about this one...

For many years I worked out at a gym at least every other day and was very goal-oriented. I pumped more iron than any other woman in the gym, which is a pretty significant accomplishment because I'm fat, ...

Kettlebells!

They're really cool! Anyone else using them? Got any hints? The one I bought turned out to be missing the instruction/exercise sheet, and the video is way too difficult for me. I have to adapt a few of the exercises, and it's a pain to FForward or wait patiently for the next set.

Foot Drop exercises

I must be completely daft at searching the web, because I cannot seem to find any exercises for foot drop (in relation to MS), specifically dorsiflexion exercises. Does anyone know of a website that would help in this area?

Site with Exercises

I've been looking for a good site with low intensity exercises to regain some functionality in various parts of my body. So far this seems to be the best one. You can search by body parts, intensity, and types of movement. http://www.physiotherapyexercises.com/

Does anyone else have similar resources they'd like to share? Any new ideas are welcome.

Dr Ritchie Russell's program

I'm starting this thread so I can find out more about neurologist Dr Ritchie Russell's multiple sclerosis exercise program. Anyone tried it?

In a nutshell, Dr Russell felt the blood brain barrier could be rebuilt, and blood flow stabilised, if patients did regular exercise in the supine position.

Herbal Magic

Has anyone tried this program with their metabolism boosting herbs? Just wondered if it had any ill effects on those of us with MS.I am not on any DMDs, just anti-spasticity drugs, LDN and 4-AP.

Thanks for any info.
