Knee exercises with ball

Common Questions and Answers about Knee exercises with ball


Avatar f tn Using an exercise ball makes strength training more difficult. Your body has to balance while completing the movement. Sit on the ball with your feet flat on the floor. Slowly crunch to your left side 10 to 15 times. Repeat the motion on the right side. Work up to two to three sets of this movement. Aim to tone the abs at least two times a week. Leave a day in between muscles strengthening sessions to allow abdominal muscles to rest.
Avatar f tn Have you tried an exercise ball? I know there's many exercises that you can do on those for legs and thighs. Or maybe a bicycle?
Avatar f tn Lie on your stomach with both of your legs fully extended behind you. Bend one of your legs at the knee in order to form a 90-degree angle. While in this position, you should feel a stretch in the back of your upper leg. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Relax and repeat. Complete this exercise 10 times. Repeat an additional 10 times using your opposite leg. Resistance band flexibility exercise for your hamstrings can help you to improve your range of motion.
1292438 tn?1276120904 Mountain Climber with Hands on Swiss Ball The benefit: It’s one of the simplest yet most effective ways to tighten your tummy. In fact, you’ll barely have to move a muscle. How to do it: Assume a pushup position with your arms completely straight, but place your hands on a Swiss ball instead of the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your ankles. Tighten your core and hold it that way for the duration of the exercise [A].
Avatar f tn can anyone suggest some simple daily exercises without a workout ball that I could do to help relieve some of these aches and pains?!
Avatar f tn carry a tennis ball with you. Any time that nerve flares sit directly on the tennis ball where the pain is for a minute or two. The pressure and pain will be temporarily relieved. Follow up with hamstring exercise and stretching. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Every ab workout should include back exercises. Some ab exercises already engage back muscles such as planks or Pilates. Exercises that target the back include the lumbar extension, which involves laying prone on the floor or a ball, and lifting your head and shoulders by using your back muscles. You can have your hands on the floor or ball for support, but don't use them to push. Bird-dog is another effective back exercise.
1936411 tn?1333831849 Just make sure someone is with you!! I can give you other exercises for leg weakness if you want them. If you think you would benefit from PT, then I would push the neuro. I never thought I was bad enough for PT, but here I am, once a week, driving the PT guy nuts!!
Avatar f tn You wouldn't think it, but you really use your arms ALOT! Maybe try walking weights, like 3-5lb ones. My arms felt like jello after both babies because your pulling your legs back. Definately try yoga stretches for your pelvic area too.
Avatar f tn Bounce on an exercise ball. I would sit on it while watching tv instead of the couch. I really think it helped.
Avatar f tn Get a bignexercise ball and look up YouTube videos on how to use birthing ball, I also use the ball to hold myself doing squats. And I walk a lot.
Avatar f tn Use the exercise ball to do crunches for your abs, planks for your core and shoulder bridge exercises to work your butt and hamstrings. If you don't want your office to be filled with exercise equipment or you can't invest the cash, do planks and pushups for your upper body, lunges and squats for your lower body, and crunches such as the bicycle crunch and reverse crunch for your core.
7892775 tn?1395673991 I was on the ball about two days non stop to help with the same pains. However I think with all the friction of the exercises I developed a skin tag down there so I stopped to see if it would go away!. Still waiting...
Avatar f tn If possible take a session with a good physical therapist to make sure you are doing the right exercises. Make sure you don't hurt yourself again (my rule of thumb is that if you feel worse the next morning then you should cut back or stop what you are doing). I would also suggest yoga as it is really good for balance.
Avatar n tn Side stepping lunge puts more emphasis on your hips. Stand with your feet together and step laterally to one side. Bend that knee and push your butt backward. Slowly rise up. Step your feet back together. Repeat the exercise on your other side. Hold dumbbells to increase the resistance. Seated abduction is done in two ways with an abduction machine or with a resistance loop.
1070610 tn?1279274410 Also I cannot relax knee down while slightly bent (spread legs apart with slightly bent knee) It also causes strain on the knee area and feels like its pulling the knee cap. With the last relapse the quad muscle (left side only) started tightening around the top and inside of the knee and slowly worked up the leg to the top and groin. I am waiting to see a physio about it but just wondering if this is spasticity or some other problem.
Avatar f tn Im 34 weeks pregnant and finding it really hard to get comfortable.. ive been told by a friend to try a birthing ball. Apparently it's meant to help get baby in position and hopefully speed things up abit. Well anyway im just wondering is it safe to start using the birthing ball of im only 34 weeks? Has anyone used it and it's brought on labour?
Avatar f tn I went and got a ball about month and half ago. I do 45 minutes peaceful move type exercises for my back and hips really helps with stretching Pains.
Avatar m tn Hi all, I am a 20 year old student who really likes weightlifting. My biggest obstacle is my left knee, which was quite heavily injured 5 years ago while I was playing basketball. It was treated by a surgery followed by physical therapy. However, my left leg has been noticably weaker than my right leg ever since. One of the reasons I started weightlifting was so I could try to fix these imbalances.

Avatar m tn I did physical therapy 3 times a week for 6 weeks, and then continued exercises at home for a while. Things got a little better, I got alot bored with the exercises, and finally just stopped. Now, my ankle pain is back - so is knee pain, and heaven help me when I 1st get up in the morning or after sitting in the recliner for any length of time - I can barely walk! I know I need to go back to the dr, but I don't want him to order physical therapy (costs to much and is not permanent).
Avatar f tn Once you are able to walk short distances unassisted, it is important to regain the strength in your leg muscles with resistance exercises. You can do the early rehab exercises with light ankle weights or resistance bands, and you can ride a stationary bike at varying degrees of resistance to strengthen your muscles and work on your range of motion at the same time. Consider taking yoga or tai chi classes.
