Home Exercise for IBS

How to Buy Equipment and Set up a Routine


Updated April 18, 2012

A home exercise routine might be just the solution to the tricky problem of trying to exercise with IBS. As you well know, the unpredictability of IBS symptoms can make it hard to get to the gym or commit to a regular class. Exercising at home allows you to schedule your exercise according to your own needs; if your symptoms are worse in the morning, you can plan to work out later in the day. Most importantly, home exercise offers easy access to a (hopefully) clean bathroom.

About.com has a treasure trove of articles packed with information on home exercise. Here, learn how to start an at-home exercise routine.
