Starting in around January I decided to do some daily wrist exercises for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and while I was at it I decided to start doing pushups. For context I couldn’t do a single pushup when I started, just half-pushups with my upper body. But by the end of April I could do over 40 full pushups in a row, as well as some simple weightlifting and wrist exercises. Carpal Tunnel is much improved and I feel better. Last month I was dealing with some stomach mess, probably IBS, which knocked out my desire to exercise, but that cleared up by the end of the month and I started the pushups again. Now I’m back up to 22 at once in just a week or so.
My tip is to find a place where you won’t be bothered and make the time every day to do the exercises, even if it’s at 3:00 in the morning and you really just want to go to bed. It only takes me 15 minutes to do a full range of exercises and even if you don’t feel like it you can almost certainly do a little bit. At least that’s what I have been telling myself and it’s mostly been working so far, IBS hiatus notwithstanding.
