No-Sweat Workout


Soon it will be cold enough in Vermont to do “no-sweat” workouts.

The good thing about not sweating when exercising is that one can save time on changing and showering. . . .

The bad thing about not sweating when exercising is that one’s liver and kidneys have to process all the metabolic waste produced by the exercise.

This is a sample of a short no-sweat workout. It was recorded in the fall of last year. It shows one of exercises I do to rehab my destroyed right shoulder.

I am using puny weights here because this is a rehab and I have a long way to go before I will be able to use my normal, heavier weights.

On a more serious note:

One of our authors and my friend, Piotr Drabik, has disappeared in September of 2006 after he landed on the island of Kaua’i, Hawaii, where he was seen on airport security cameras. He arrived there from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada), through Salt Lake City, Utah, and Honolulu, Hawaii. We (his friends at Stadion Publishing) were assisting in the investigation of his disappearance. The investigation was ineffective and eventually the case was dropped by all involved authorities.If you have seen him on or after September of 2006, or know anything about his whereabouts, please e-mail us at infoATstadionDOTcom.

    What did you do to destroy your right shoulder? What specific muscles were most injured that this exercise is beneficial to them? Was this a re-injury after surgery and, if so, how long ago was that surgery?

    p.s. Sorry to hear about Piotr. I hope he is soon found.

    I continue to keep my eyes open for any signs of Piotr. I live in Salt Lake City and became interested in his disappearance when there was a possibility he went missing in Salt Lake City. I wish there was some online group to keep each other informed. I pray for Piotr , his family, and friends.

    I had a major shoulder injury and a surgery in 1999. The injury resulted from a neglected minor tear of supraspinatus tendon, which happened in 1994. It healed but the scar irritated the joint and caused a chronic inflammation. The doctor I had seen about it had no clue and treated the inflammation instead of having me see a surgeon. (I didn’t know much better either–but I am not a physician.) The inflammation led to arthritis and destruction of tendon of the long head of biceps and of glenoidal labrum. Surgeons cleaned up and fixed up what could be fixed and I regained most of my normal strength. By the end of 2006 deficiencies of the shoulder’s mechanics caught up with me, I got a bad inflammation that affected my movement control. Eventually in 2007 I had a total dislocation of my right shoulder, with torn off muscles, and damage to the joint itself. So I had the second surgery to reattach torn tendons, fix Bankhart’s lesion, etc.

    Don’t you wish you hadn’t asked?

    Thank you for your concern and prayer.

    In the meantime I learned from one of my readers that Piotr Drabik did make it to the island of Kaua’i. I will update my post with that info.
