I started lifting and playing basketball again and i'm mildly flaring and havent seen any increase in symptoms due to the exercise at all. I've been working out hard too. Basketball once a week and I am feeling more in basketball shape each time i play. Total body weight training just to get started again and I only give my self like 1 or 2 minutes at the most in between reps so I would say it's pretty intense.
