Walking is always the best exercise for me but I do try others. Our cable has an On Demand feature that has exercise tv and it has various types of programs. I love the dance ones. My daughter and I did hip=hop and swing yesterday. We had so much fun.
I like trying different types of things.

This morning I did The Biggest Loser Cardio Max. I did the week 1-2 workout for 30 minutes and I didn't use weights and I kept it lower impact in a lot of places, but it didn't aggravate my asthma at all!

I also enjoy the Walk away the pounds and usually can do the 2 mile with ease but I would always start with the 1 mile and work yourself up. I am building myself back to the 3 mile after some minor setbacks for me. Good idea to ask your doctor first like you said because you don't want a set back. Hang in there and you will make it.

I've actually started running with the idea of making my lungs stronger. I'm taking it slow, but I've felt a little wheezy after running, but it does seem to be getting better. I'm able to push myself farther and farther.

Swimming is a great way to exercise if you have asthma. I also like to ride my bike. The truth is, running and super high energy things like jump rope are the only things that aggravate my asthma.

Hello!

Thank you for all your great suggestions on the other thread. I thought I'd start another thread.

What exercises/videos/classes/etc do you take that doesn't aggravate your asthma?

Right now, strength training, yoga, and walking all work for me. I can also do short bursts of high intensity cardio (as long as it is not outside in the cold), but I can't do much above 30 seconds to a minute of very energetic stuff before I start to feel the irritation in my bronchials.

I've just ordered the "Walk away the pounds" dvds from netflix, so I will give one those a try.

I'm also meeting with my doctor in a week or two to let him know how I've been doing and see if he can recommend anything.

I don't want to push myself until I've met with him, so I'm going to stick with the things I know work for me, and if I start to feel the irritation and need to cough, I will immediately take it down a notch. I also have an inhaler to use if necessary.

When I was diagnosed, he said that it was mild, but I am concerned that when I was exercising last week I started to feel wheezy. I hope there is something I can do. I want to be strong and athletic and healthy! I want to be able to run.

I'd love to hear what other people do that works for them.

Thanks!
