Reply To: Excessive Physical Exertion Takes a Toll

Hi Jim, I’m in L.A. too. My doctor is Shalini Mahajan. She took over Dr. King Engel’s practice after he retired. I can tell you that one of the things that Dr. King Engel and Dr. Mahajan have told me is to NOT do intense exercise. It appears that you are finding that out. Don’t overstrain your muscles. Now, I only use 10-15 pound dumbbells instead of much more. Not too many reps. Not to failure. The one thing you don’t want to do is to overdo anything.

Just my understanding.
