Physio pilates rehab

Physio pilates rehab.

Basic core and glute strengthening exercise.
Alternate leg lifts, transferring weight from leg to leg engaging glutes whilst pulling down on a taut band. This helps engage the core.

Strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.

With even the simplest exercise it's important for the body to be correctly aligned  for the exercise to be targeting the muscles properly.

There’s a heatwave coming! Keep hydrated

Keep hydrated.  Drinking 2 litres of water a day is important for a healthy body and hydrated youthful skin too.

Waking up the glutes

Waking up the glutes.

When in rehab after a knee ligaments injury and little or no exercise for weeks- it's best to get the basic core strength muscles activated before launching back into the same advanced levels of exercise as before.

Repetitions increase daily.

The instructions are in the video voice-over together with my actions. With thanks to Tessa @bh_beyondhealth

Physio exercise for rehab

Physio exercise for rehab.

When you have a knee injury, unable to exercise as usual, and you're  hyper-mobile, muscles quickly switch off especially the glute, core and hamstrings. 
It's starting over again with the most basic fitness exercises.

To kick start muscle memory and functionality, tie a stretchy band knotted at the ends over a door frame, and pull down.
Then weight transfer from leg to leg and lift knee. The action of pulling on the bands will help switch on and engage core and glutes.
