Pompe Disease News asked a physiotherapist Tracy Boggs to answer questions about how to make exercise safe and effective for people with Pompe disease.

Boggs graduated from the University of North Carolina with a master’s degree in physical therapy and is a Certified Clinical Specialist in Neurological Physiotherapy. She has over 20 years of experience working with adults with neurological and neuromuscular disorders. Since 2011, she has worked with people with genetic metabolic disorders, such as Pompe and several other glycogen storage diseases, in clinics and in multiple research studies. She has also presented numerous times at the annual Duke Late-Onset Pompe – United Pompe Foundation meeting and served on two advisory boards focused on Pompe disease.

What types of exercises are recommended for people with Pompe disease that might differ from those without?

People with Pompe benefit from the same types of exercises like almost everyone:

  • Professionals recommend aerobic exercise, which conditions the heart and lungs, to improve endurance. There are a wide variety of activities that fall into this category, such as walking, using an elliptical trainer, a stationary bike, a handcycle, etc.
  • Strengthening exercises are also key to maximizing a person’s functional independence and ability to participate in activities they enjoy. Core stability and posture are particularly important areas as both are impaired by the patterns of weakness affecting those with Pompe.
  • Flexibility exercises (stretching) are beneficial for maintaining range of motion.
  • Balance exercises may be needed to address deficits that typically arise from weakness.

One of the main differences when developing an exercise program for someone with Pompe is the level of intensity. The disease process is thought to make Pompe’s muscles more fragile and put them at risk of injury from excessive strain. Submaximal exercise levels are known to be safe for someone with Pompe to avoid possible muscle damage. More research is needed before we can say for sure whether higher intensities are safe or beneficial.

What should a person with Pompe be aware of when exercising?

As mentioned above, exercising within submaximal guidelines is encouraged, while heavy weights and high-intensity exercises are not. The risk of falling can also be a concern, especially as the weakness progresses. Therefore, we recommend that people seek out safe modes of exercise, such as using a stationary bike instead of walking on a treadmill, or using an assistive device to walk on outdoor surfaces.

The work of breathing is also something to consider when choosing how to exercise, as the diaphragm is often weakened in people with Pompe. For example, water sports can be great, but a person has to consider how deep they can tolerate being in the pool. The higher the water level, the more pressure is put on the diaphragm, which can make it harder to breathe.

Ultimately, a person with Pompe should consult their medical team (which includes a physical therapist) for specific advice on developing an exercise plan that is right for them.

What do you recommend for those who are afraid of falling during exercise?

There are many safe options for exercising when someone has balance issues. If they don’t know how to proceed, a physical therapist can help them determine the safest plan. If someone enjoys walking outdoors, it would be beneficial to use some type of device to improve stability (like walking sticks or a cane). When deciding which cardio equipment to use, a seated option like a stationary bike may be safer than walking on a treadmill.

Water exercise is another safe option as the resistance of water can be used for effective strengthening and aerobics, while the buoyancy of water makes standing easier and can reduce fear of falling.

Finally, there are a wide variety of online and in-person seated exercise classes (e.g., seated yoga, dance, and boxing) that address cardio, strengthening, and flexibility.

Should someone with Pompe push their limits when experiencing muscle weakness, or is it best to stay within the range of felt/felt limitations?

To reduce the risk of injury, I recommend an exercise approach that starts low and goes slowly. The right level of exercise is something that needs to be determined for each person based on their presentation. Thus, the best weight for one person may not be suitable for another. By gradually increasing the weight used for an exercise, you can find your limit without exceeding it and without damaging the muscle.

With a progressive disease, it is difficult to find a reason to exercise when you feel that you will never be able to achieve your goals. Do you have any advice for them?

Since goal setting can be difficult with a progressive disease, it is necessary to have an honest conversation about what is important to a person and to develop realistic goals that add value to their life. Once these are identified, we can then backtrack to see how targeted exercise might help a person achieve their goals.

For example, a person’s goal may be to play with their grandchildren. If we help them understand how exercise can increase their endurance and strength to achieve this, they are likely to be more committed to an exercise plan. Working towards something of value in this way can increase motivation.

It’s also important to look at what activities a person enjoys and use these to base an exercise plan on when possible. For example, someone who loves nature would more likely enjoy walking outdoors than on a treadmill in a gym.

What recommendations would you have for a tired person who feels exhausted for days after exercise sessions?

My first recommendation would be to make sure they adhere to submaximal exercise guidelines to avoid overexerting themselves. Exercise is crucial in the fight fatigue, but if done too vigorously, it could be counterproductive. In general, if you haven’t recovered two hours after exercise, you’ve probably overdone it and need to reduce the intensity or amount. Finding the right rhythm and the right level of intensity is essential to avoid overexertion.

If trying to do all of your exercise at once is too much, you can spread the exercise out throughout the day. Smaller chunks of exercise can be more manageable and add up to provide the same benefit as a long session, with the added benefit of being less tiring. These exercise pieces can also help reduce soreness and stiffness caused by prolonged periods of inactivity.

Also, give yourself credit for what you do throughout the day. You can use wearable devices (fitness trackers) to help monitor your activity for a more objective measurement. Try to vary your plan. If your job requires a lot of walking, you may need to focus more on other types of exercises like strengthening, balance, or flexibility. And if you’ve had a particularly tough day, change your routine to focus on something gentler, like stretching, relaxation, or breathing exercises.

FFinally, stick to your plan and don’t try to get extra minutes or reps every day because you feel good. Such overactivity could lead to excessive fatigue or pain, which can then lead to excessive rest – a cycle best avoided.

Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt welcomed a baby girl a few days ago.

As is now the custom, the new parents received well wishes not only from close relatives, but also from their fans and peers.

One to congratulate the couple was Ranbir’s trainer who shared how committed the star is to his fitness now, even after becoming a father.

The celebrity couple took to Instagram to announce this latest development in their lives.

The post featured a photo of a lion, lioness and their cub, with the caption: “And in the best news of our lives: – our baby is here…and what a magical girl she is. We are officially overflowing with love – blessed and obsessed parents!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE Alia and Ranbir.

Other celebrities also left their congratulatory messages in the comments.

In a separate post, Drew Neal, Ranbir’s trainer posted a photo of himself with the star. He praised the actor for his commitment to his fitness regimen, noting the fact that Ranbir chose to attend his workout after the birth of his baby girl. Neal concluded by congratulating the new parents.

He wrote: “This guy had probably the best excuse not to hit the gym this week after the birth of his baby girl. However, he didn’t skip a beat and crushed every session Congratulations once again @aliaabhatt @ranbir_kapoooor #mondaymotivation #noexcuses #coach #health #fitness #ranbirkapoor”

The post-sabbatical phase of Ranbir’s career saw him largely eschew the “chocolate boy” image he had cultivated so far, opting instead to double down to become an action star. And that’s why,he has dedicated the last few years to working with some of the best fitness experts in the industryShamshera and brahmastra.

Ranbir will next be seen in a yet to be named romantic comedy directed by Luv Ranjan opposite Shraddha Kapoor.

He is also working on Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s gangster drama Animal which sees him playing alongside stars like Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna.

But soon after making his IPL 2022 debut, Malik disappeared from the international scene. Before being released, the 22-year-old only played three T20Is. Malik’s bowling performance fell short of expectations when he faced Ireland in a T20 international series in June. His save rate in three games was 12.44 and he only managed to grab two wickets.

He was expected to play a key role for India in the T20 World Cup 2022. But it seemed difficult for him to make the World Cup squad as he also had no been mentioned in the Asian Cup squad. However, Malik was expected to join India’s World Cup squad as a net bowler to help Indian batters acclimate to conditions in Australia. But the speedster was unable to travel to Australia to join the team due to a delay in obtaining Australian visas.

Pipeline into 120 hotels, exceeding the company’s year-end goal while making ECHO Suites its fastest growing brand; the second and third hotels inaugurate today Virginia

PARSIPPANY, NJ, November 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchise company with approximately 9,100 hotels in more than 95 countries, today announced the names of its 24e brand, ECHO Suites Extended Stay by Wyndham. Officially the fastest growing brand in Wyndham’s development pipeline, the brand, which continues to exceed expectations while attracting strong interest from developers, has 120 hotels in its pipeline across the United States. (to September 30e), well ahead of the year-end target previously shared by the Company.

“In just six months, ECHO Suites Extended Stay by Wyndham has secured its place as the fastest growing brand in our development pipeline, highlighting continued and robust demand from travelers and developers for economical extended stay deals,” said Geoff Ballotti, President and CEO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Imagined and designed from day one with constant input, review and oversight from many of our nation’s most experienced extended stay developers, Echo Suites was designed with one specific goal in mind: to create a prototype focused on the return on investment that is as profitable to build as it is to operate.”

ECHO Suites was designed to help maximize efficiency and reduce operating costs, while providing an optimized “home away from home” for long-term guests. Born from the core values ​​of simplicity, minimalism and modernity, the brand is dedicated to providing guests with efficiently designed spaces and thoughtful essentials, forming the basis of a great stay.

Ballotti added, “More than ever, travelers today are looking for value, especially long-term guests who book extended stays. At the same time, they want a space that looks and feels like them. A space well-designed and inviting. We believe that if you can give them that, they’ll come back, night after night, stay after stay. That’s what ECHO Suites is all about: to provide guests with a great extended-stay experience, a bargain price, so that, like an echo, they repeat it again and again.”

Extended stay in mind
After breaking the ground for its first hotel in Plano, Texas. with dallas-based in Gulf Coast Hotel Management last September, ECHO Suites today opened its second and third hotels in Sterling, Virginia. and Richmond, Virginia. Both hotels are developed by richmondSandpiper Hospitality, one of the brand’s earliest and largest developers.

“From the start, Wyndham has proven to be an owner-focused organization, putting developers first so they can not only understand our needs, but also appreciate what makes this segment different from others in the industry” , said Carter Climb, Founder and CEO, The Sandpiper Group of Companies. “That fact, combined with the continued support and accessibility of Wyndham’s leadership team, is why we are opening our first two of 27 planned ECHO Suites hotels today.”

The 124-room, purpose-built ECHO Suites prototype requires just under two acres of land and has a very competitive cost per key. Covering approximately 50,000 square feet, of which nearly 74% is rentable, single rooms average 300 square feet. Rooms consist of single and double studio suites with kitchens as well as efficiently designed public areas – a lobby, fitness center and 24/7 laundry facilities – which contribute to limit labor requirements.

Extended Stay has been an industry leader for growth and recovery in recent years, with no signs of slowing down. In 2021, the segment outperformed all other chain scales with an occupancy rate nearly 20 points higher than all other US segments combined. More recently, STR Q3 2022 industry data shows that guests are checking into budget and midscale extended-stay hotels at a higher rate (76%) than at economy and midscale hotels. traditional range (62%).

ECHO Suites fills a void within Wyndham’s portfolio while reinforcing the company’s role as the undisputed leader in economy and midscale hotels. At the same time, it fills an important gap in the market for fresh and consistent extended stay products for new construction. The company plans to open its first ECHO Suites hotels in 2023.

The head coach Jason Roseau on the elderly…
“I love these guys. They’ve been through more than their fair share. I’m emotional talking about them because they’ve been through the COVID-19 stuff, they’re all hurt…they haven’t been shaken fairly. It sucks, and it’s not fair, but through it all, they show up every day and work hard. I’m proud of them and they will be missed. We know whatever that is. they do in their next chapters, they’re gonna smash and we can’t wait to celebrate them the rest of their lives.

NEXT
The Greyhounds wrap up the regular season with just one game next Saturday in Maryville. The first service in St. Louis is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET.

PALM BEACH, Fla. — It looks like one Palm Beach billionaire’s treasure is another Palm Beach billionaire’s trash.

A limited liability company related to Estee Lauder executive chairman William P. Lauder purchased the property at 1071 N. Ocean Blvd. at the end of last year, the Palm Beach Daily News reported.

Now, the three-story, 35,000+ square foot oceanfront mansion is being torn down – likely to make way for another, even bigger mansion.

The opulent estate, which was built in 2016, was razed Wednesday after a notice to begin demolition of the property was recently filed with the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office.

According to the Palm Beach Daily News, the demolition is billed as the costliest dismantling in the city’s history.

A Palm Beach Police officer watches outside 1071 N. Ocean Blvd., which is being demolished, Oct. 26, 2022, in Palm Beach, Florida.

Some residents angered by demolition told the Daily Beast that leveling is a “complete rubbish” and an eyesore after years of construction, renovations and now this.

The 6 year old mansion had been built with a home cinema, library, wine cellar, fitness center, hair salon and pub room.

Palm Beach County property records show it changed hands in 2019 before Reiwa Holdings LLC took control two years later.

Plans for the future of the property were not submitted to the city, leaving the future of the lot in limbo.

The Palm Beach Daily News reported that Lauder also owns a vacant parcel of land next to the property through another LLC.
