Are all episodes/sessions in High Intensity available for playback? When I search for a next one, I just see a rather random assortment to choose from, not including the number I searched for. I'd like to do the season in order. Is there any way to ask for the next one?
I joined this year and have been using your videos regularly. Some of the videos I watch are no longer there. An example is Episode 41, season 2, high intensity. Do these get removed after a certain amount of time?
Thank your for using the videos! I’m sorry for the confusion. None of the videos have been taken down... just re-titled. I received feedback asking for filming dates to be placed on the titles. Many thought the episode/season format I was using was too confusing. Because of that, I reorganized the high intensity series by release date. So I believe the video your referencing would now be somewhere in the “2020 High Intensity Training” category and likely either Episode 11 (3.21.20) or Episode 12 (3.28.20).
Again, I’m sorry for the confusion. Please let me know if you were able to find the video you were looking for. If not, I will reach out to you to see if I can locate it.
Hi Nate, you nailed it! I really like the 'drinking bird' for stretching the hamstrings!
I mainly want to say THANK YOU for what you and your team do! I have been participating in boxing for Parkinsons in Austin since being diagnosed 2 years ago, but of course, classes stopped until June 1st. I have not decided whether to go back or not though from a safety standpoint. I really appreciate your efforts and I'm using a variety of your videos.
Sometimes it would be nice to be in person to make sure positioning is correct to get the best benefit and prevent injuries but overall what you provide is great!
Wow, Craig! You made my morning:) So glad you enjoy what we are doing and find some value in it. I know nothing replaces classes but hopefully Daily Dose PD gives you the guidance you need to bridge the gap until everyone feels comfortable starting back up.
Please let me know if you have any questions with the videos down the line. I try to respond within a day to any comments so this is a great way to stay in touch.
All the best,
I have been a member of Daily dose for a couple of months, and I have frankly not used the videos. Any recommendation as to where I start? I watched you in the Parkinson's Class by Dr. Mischley, and I want to incorporate your 5 Tips for exercise. I am 54. I currently walk for exercise.
Thanks for writing. I'm sorry you haven't been able to use the videos up to this point but, hopefully, I can provide some tips on where to start. So, I started Daily Dose PD to give people some guidance in exercises that were researched to help with PD. The hard part is finding a workout program that challenges each person adequately. I tell most people to start with the "Starter Series" category. These videos are at a moderate pace but teach amplitude, balance and coordination. Try the Starter Series videos in any order for 1 week. The videos are set up to give you 150 minutes/wk of consistent exercise if you use one a day. You are walking regularly and if that is pushing your heart rate, making you break a sweat and breathe heavily, then you can count that toward those 150 minutes of intense exercise and mix the videos and the walks throughout the week.
If at the end of the week you still find these workouts difficult then stick with them until you feel you are ready for a bigger challenge. If you find the workouts easy and don't feel challenged, then I would suggest moving to either our A.M.P. Class workouts or our High Intensity Series. The goal is to find a workout that challenges you to work harder than you would self-select to ensure we are getting our intensity up while at the same time challenging balance, strength and amplitude. We normally shoot a new video in our live workouts for each of these categories every week so you will always have something new to use.
Now, if you have other issues you are dealing with when it comes to Parkinson's (balance, stiffness low voice volume, facial masking, etc) you might want to check out some of our other workouts including: Tai Chi, Yoga, voice training or facial exercises. These would be in addition to your 150 minutes of intense exercise but would focus on the areas that are specific to your needs as everybody with PD has differing symptoms.
I hope this information helps you get started on the right track. I really want to thank you for trying the videos and I hope they are helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
I send out emails every Sunday with a listing of our live classes with links for the Zoom rooms throughout the week. I'd love it if you could check into one of those. I teach 4 out of the 6 classes and if I see you in the room I'd love to say hi and encourage you along the way. I really feel getting into a live class via the zoom links are a great way to stay motivated and be accountable to the others showing up to the workout.
Hope to see you soon and have a great weekend,
Thank you for the thorough reply. I really feel excited to follow your recommendations.
I hope it helps. I need to put together a video that leads new users through how to use the videos. I hope you get value out of the videos and please reach out to me if you have any questions. We aren't a big company. It's just me and the other therapists and trainers you see on the videos. If I don't respond right away it's because I'm treating patients in our clinic or hanging out with my wife and kids. But, I usually respond within 24 hours.
Thanks and have a great weekend,
