  • Hey, as long as the doctors give you the OK you can go do those Crazy things burpees. 

    Myself I prefer a my more laid back approach, you know like couch potato stuff and the gym 3 times a week with some weights and elliptical.  Nothing strenuous just keeping the heart healthy and stuff like that.

  • I run 2 km daily, did some morning workout. Have no complications but its not the same for everyone. The age of patient and strength of immune system all matters  

  • I do daily exercise of walking 2 miles on treadmill.  Elliptical for 10 minutes and bike for 10 minutes. Also, I do some light weight exercise of machine to make my muscle stronger.  My doctor gave green signal and i am doing since 1 year.  It kept my weight and all reports in control.  Having said that, It is important to take care yourself by not doing hard weight lifting , playing karate or soccer or football. Any exercise or game which may harm to kidney is not good as per Doctor.

  • Personally I don't think it's smart for anyone (transplant patient or not) to go from not doing much of anything to jumping right into a high intensity program. But that's just me. If you are far enough out from transplant and your docs have ok'd all exercise, then go ahead and do what you want to do. You most likely won't hurt the kidney, but can hurt all sorts of other body parts (like joints, back, muscles, etc) if you haven't built yourself up for it.

    The bottom line is that once you are cleared to exercise, you should be doing something you like and that you can continue in order to maintain your health. If you don't like treadmills and cycling, then in the long term you probably aren't going to keep it up. And getting regular exercise is important.
