I had trouble motivating myself to work out once my mobile was feeling more natural, about 3 months post replacement. Physio has signed off, I was pain free and feeling good about myself and my basic functioning. Just enjoying my abilities to be pain free and move. Were previously, I would work out to help with my pain management in the long-run. A little pain now to push through, less pain later on a day to day basis.
My motivation for this work out at home was to get through the road trip that I had coming up (to New Brunswick from Ontario, going through the States, with my parents). Having a purpose and goal was important. And doing what I could before a 2-3 day road trip would be worth it!
I don’t usually work out at home on Saturday’s but with this being the first Saturday without rugby I was energized to get a workout in before heading out for the evening.
My work out consisted of 3-4 sets of the following:
Wall Squats w. Bosu Ball (10-12 reps)
Side steps w. resistant bands (10 reps a side)
Donkey Kicks w. ankle weights (10 reps a side)
These basic moves got me moving and prepared for the road trip ahead.
One thought on “Work Out Day at Home”
good luck with your continued rehab, looking good so far. I had both hips done in 2012 and am feeling great
