  • Exercise

    Being new to this I was wondering if some of the newbies and oldies could give me an idea of what types if exercise everyone is doing. I'm by nature a very active person but am afraid of doing too much in fear of reprisals from my bladder. Does anyone ride a bike? I have tried to go for small rides while sitting on my butt cheeks. Any successes?

    Thanks!

    Hi SuziQ,

    I use my Wii for exercise. My favorite "game" is Just Dance 2. Low impact - doesn't seem to upset my bladder. And it is really, really fun! You can use the game as a competition and play with friends or choose the "just sweat" option which lets you set and keep track of goals.

        I spin on a regular basis. On days I have a lot of pain, I don't jump, run, or climb; I just stay seated. I also have a road bike I use sometimes.
