    Basal Thumb joint pain(CMC Joint) advice for gloves & modifications for push ups/down dog, etc.

    I know I haven't checked in for awhile but I thought I'd share my CMC joint journey. I've been doing PT for my Thumb CMC joint since late September. The brace I found that works best for me is called a Push MetaGrip CMC Brace. I can wash dishes, do chores etc. because I can get it wet. If I'm...

    I try to always get the presale DVD/Downloads packages so I have workout choices if I'm traveling. Wifi isn't always available or reliable when I'm traveling. When I'm ready to workout with Cathe I hate to be disappointed with streaming glitches so I have my downloads but I prefer the options...

    Basal Thumb joint pain(CMC Joint) advice for gloves & modifications for push ups/down dog, etc.

    Thanks VM2020. I was surprised that holding resistance bands instead of dumb bells as suggested on various Arthritis web sites actually hurt worse at that particular spot. Now I know I'm not alone. I will look into the Mueller gloves as well. I see my beloved PT this coming Tuesday!

    Basal Thumb joint pain(CMC Joint) advice for gloves & modifications for push ups/down dog, etc.

    Hi Traildoggie, Thank you for your response to my plea for help with my need for alternative push up suggestions and brace support. I'm now 67. My inflammatory arthritis hit me over night when I was 39. I had a great Rheumatologist for many years but lost him in 2014 to a medical early...

    Thanks Lady Vol Fan. I just reviewed my post and I had to edit out some grammar mistakes :) I hope to get some advice soon. Low Impact cardio today. "No hands!" :)

    Basal Thumb joint pain(CMC Joint) advice for gloves & modifications for push ups/down dog, etc.

    Anyone else dealing with this issue? Started very slowly with Cathe's Cross Train/Low Impact 90 day rotation last March after a long layoff due to illness. Cardio, strength and flexibility coming back but by May the CMC pain is increasing. Stopped mt. climbers, etc. did push ups on knees...

    PERFECT30 FAQ Page

    HI, I pre-ordered just the DVD bundle awhile ago. But the more I think about it I wish I had added the downloads as well. What should I do? Is it too late to add on to my original order? Should I call? Send an email? Thanks for all you do!

    Who wants step tutorials?

    Yes, please! Especially with form pointers to support the core muscles and glute muscles properly. 66 years old and still doing your workouts but with modifications for SI joint issues. Thanks for all you do!

    Cathe Gratitude 2020

    Hello A-Jock. Cocob1 (aka/Colleen) here. I don't check the Forum as often as I used to but Cathe has kept me going since I found her back in 2002. Now I'm a woman of a "certain age". 15 years or so older than Cathe is today. I never was felt that I had to be perfect working out to Cathe. Just...

    Here is How to Download Your Pre-Sale LITE Downloads

    For the first time in over 15 years I messed up getting a Cathe Series on Pre-sale. I was so excited to start my Downloads and get my DVDs in the mail next week. But when I looked for my download code I couldn't find it. Nor a receipt for purchase. I had a note on my calendar last May to buy...

    Workouts while traveling

    Thanks Cathe and everyone who added suggestions. I'll be out of town and in a tight space for the next 6 weeks. I completed 3 and half months of 2x a week Physical Therapy for a hip injury and slowly added in STS Vol 1 with very low weights. I own almost all of Cathes' workouts since 2002...

    Diamonds in the Rough Check In

    PT & Dry Needling today. I started the 90 day Fit Tower/Ice/Low Impact 90 day rotation 3 days ago just to give me a schedule to follow along with my PT exercises knowing I'll have to make major modifications. I did Low Impact Challenge with just the topper, no risers, and instead of repeaters I...

    Diamonds in the Rough Check In

    Checking in. I've had two sessions with ... scary but seems to be helping ... Dry Needling with my PT. Glutes and Adductor. My PT exercises are very minimal right now. Modified cobra, marching while holding my core on the floor, dropping my left leg out while on the floor and hanging my leg...

    Diamonds in the Rough Check In

    I apologize for disappearing from the check in. The hip stuff pain went off the charts and then between work/pain/no workouts/Dr.'s appt's again being sent to get L4/L5 injections and I just didn't trust the diagnosis. It's my hip (locked up/click/soft tissue swelling) I found another highly...

    I need a new beginners check in

    Welcome Amy! Quick check in. I didn't start my rotation yesterday but plan to do it within the hour - 2 old friends who I hadn't seen in months due to my insane work schedule contacted me at the last minute yesterday. I made a conscious choice to put love and friendship and an evening out...

    I need a new beginners check in

    Hi Rapid, TCB309 and Melanie1966. I have made a decision to start Fit Tower/Ice/Low Impact Series 90 day rotation - adding in my PT exercises and starting out with low weights. If I need to cut back on cardio days and add in extra dynamic stretching or Tracy Long's Core 1 & Core 2 series I will...
