As the week progresses, I need to start thinking of Saturday which is a party day for my Grandson, he will be 3 yrs old. So the weekend won’t be used for walking or physio.
So I need to get my physio in on these 4 days at least. Still having some thigh pain I’m reluctant to do much. And my elbow is still super sore and feeling odd from partially dislocating on Friday, so weights are definitely out for now.
I think I will do my hardest ones, but very low reps for now.
- Mini squat 15 reps
- Clam raise 15 reps (some improvement there)
- Side leg raise 15 reps
- Prone lying, bent knee raise 15 reps
- Aerobic step lunge 15 reps (I don’t have a Bosu Ball)
- Aerobic step overs 15 reps
- Ankle weighted side steps 30 steps
I do NOT lunge as well as this, more like a lean forward with the weight solely on the operated leg. Then push back off that leg. Really hard, really difficult, and does twinge my knee at times. I need to speak to Physiotherapist to check it’s ok. I do less of lunge to protect the knee at the moment.
For the walk overs the step, I do exactly what it says, I use the operated leg on the step and step right over with the opposite leg, keeping the operated leg planted the whole time. Again difficult for me,but hoping it helps with strength.
