I’m looking for a little advice from other people with MS that use the gym.
I have RRMS and have just come out of a stint of 18 months relapsing on and off, some being more sever than others, but that seems to be behind me now.
Feeling better, I have started using the gym again as I have missed it so much, but it’s not the same
My legs seem to be weak. If I warm up on a machine, say the cross trainer, I need a break before I go to the next piece of equipment because as soon as I stop my legs have forgotten what to do. I can’t walk properly, they feel like jelly and as if they are about to give way. But after a few minutes I recover. Generally speaking, my legs are ok during the exercise too, until I hit that tired point.
I thought I’d put this to the test and went to a boot camp class this morning. This was disastrous. My legs can’t respond quick enough to go from one exercise to the next.
Has anyone else suffered with this?
I’m unsure what to do. Do I admit defeat and stick to one exercise, such as running or keep going to classes and hope that my legs learn to react?
If anyone is in the same boat, I’d welcome an opinion of what you did, especially I you manage to overcome this.
