My physical therapist has said that basically anything that doesn’t hurt I’m cleared to do… and if it does hurt, stop and try again a few days later. So we’re working into side lunges and even, apparently, working my way back into wearing heels so I can keep the shoes I bought for the wedding! Guys, I realize that might not seem big to you but trust me, I spent way too long trying to find the “perfect” shoes.
This morning I had physical therapy and then just did a quick ab workout but I wanted to post yesterday’s since it was a leg focused workout.
25 squats– the last set I had to not go as low, I’m trying to listen to my body and back off when it starts to hurt
10 split lunges/leg
20 calf raises
10 side lunges/leg
20 sumo squats
20 hamstring bridges
20 leg lifts
15 dead lifts to bicep curl
20 lateral shoulder raises
20 front shoulder raises
20 Russian Twists/side
*3 set, changing the oblique exercise each time
As I go through things and when I’m in PT, it is definitely getting stronger but the dynamic movements (pushing through a lunge etc) are still very challenging. Keep sending good thoughts my way please 🙂 Future hubby gets home this weekend!
Something I’m trying to remember with this injury:
