I have always wondered, why do I feel better after exercise? What's the connection to uc? Then recently I was told that bacteria cannot survive in a well oxygenated body.
 
Thoughts anyone.

I've heard that, too. And the natural endorphins/energy boost from exercising.

Excercise almost always makes me feel better.  I try to walk/run as much as possible.  Some days I venture off of my street - others I just walk up and down my street b/c I never know when I will have to rush to the bathroom.

Diagnosed Pancolitis 5/05.

In a well-nourished and trained body, everything runs better - all of your organs benefit from a stronger heart that works more efficiently, from a heightened metabolism that processes fats and toxins quicker and easier, lungs that oxygenate the body more efficiently, etc. ... I work out as much as possible, though I've taken to working out home lately due to a flare. i still get a pretty darn good workout in though w/ some dumbbells and a stability ball! Cardio is harder b/c as Soccermom3 mentioned, it's hard to get to far from the house, and I never feel comfortable at the gym when in full-flare. Too much straining going on lifting those weights - LOL!!

Regular exercise is a huge benefit for keeping the bowels and other organs functioning properly and for healthy bones and joints...as well as the mind.

There's nothing but benefits to working-out on a regular basis.

I do weight training and cardio 3 days a week. I'm doing it pretty heavily right now and it puts me on top of the world!!! ...which is weird because I can barely move my upper body I'm so sore... yeah

Does doing ab exercises (like crunches) affect UC? Or is it just that I should avoid it during a flare-up when I have cramps?

I have crohns (crohns-colitis specifically) and do hundreds of ab crunches with no issues (and I'm flaring to some degree, I'm not in full remission)...BUT, I never eat before I exercise so that could be why I have no issues with it.

I work out doing weights and cardio 4-5 days a week....and I sleep like a baby, with the exception of hormonal fluctuations during that time of the month, but believe me, working out regularly has done me wonders in the emotional dept as well.

I purchased one of those indoor trainers that you attach to a bicycle, so I can cycle indoors...this way I can setup my bike in the basement near a bog if I need to go and it's private.
