For Arthritis, It is Just a Walk in the Park
By J.R. Rogers
As you likely know, I have shared the three things that I feel give you the greatest success in dealing with osteoarthritis. First, that you use a high-quality liquid Glucosamine. Secondly, that you stay with a healthy diet regimen. Finally, that you exercise.
The Walk that Really Works
Maximizing the Benefits of the Walk
If you really want to get the greatest benefits out of walking, here is a little tip that I use. It is a great added benefit if you can handle it.
Tips on Techniques and More
Try to make sure that your heel is hitting the ground first with each step. Also, try to keep your elbows bent at about 90 degrees and keep a pace that is not too fast. Some say that you should walk at a speed at which you can do it and still carry on a conversation. I think that is sound advice.
Keep your head up and level with your body stance so that your shoulders are about even with your hips. This is going to keep your body evenly balanced and getting the most out of your walking experience.
Add a Little Weight
Those little "dumbbells" you see in the sports stores (and, sold in major chain stores) can add a whole new dimension to walking. They are sold in small sizes and are a great investment in a walking regimen. (I have seen them in two, three, five, and seven-pound sizes.)
Once you are comfortable with your walking, add the smallest of these weights to your daily stroll. Of course, add one to each hand. Do not move up too fast. Make sure you are measuring how you feel with the lower levels.
If you find that this is working without causing any pain in either your elbows or shoulders, move up the weight range. I have a friend who uses seven-pounds in each hand daily. In fact, he does this for one hour every day. This man is 65 years old and he is in incredible shape. This is his exercise routine. This is the only exercise regimen he follows.
This is a wonderful addition to the general walking regimen if you do not experience any pain issues. It is especially good for those with arthritis.
See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain
These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.
This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.
If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.
The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
Once you begin your course above, you will receive one article each day delivered right to your email inbox. The daily topics are:
