Valentine’s? Nah it’s Physio time!!

I don’t do Valentine’s I confess, as I am happily married and we show acts of love everyday, which doesn’t cost a thing.

And we often have date nights, special events and outings, that this really is another day to me. Though we are planning a nice bottle of wine and roast dinner.

Though I was spoilt this week with something I’ve wanted for a while. It’s a Bosu ball, so I can do the same physio at home as I do at the hospital.

It makes one legged lunges and step ups so much harder, so less reps but works the muscles so much more. Great for helping with balance too, when your foot isn’t level. It works all the micro muscles we don’t think about.

So it’s off to the hospital and get ready for a beasting physio session. The last one before I see the surgeon too.

  • Stationary bike level 2 x 4mins
  • Leg press 40kg x 20reps
  • Trampoline marching x 1min
  • Bosu ball side lunges x 16reps
  • Upside down Bosu ball x 10 reps
  • Bosu ball 1 legged squats x 10reps
  • Green resistant band Duck walking x 20reps

Thank goodness for parallel bars as these exercises would NOT be possible. And I’m glad I have nothing else to do afterwards, as she always makes me almost crawl out. Bambi legged.
