Yesterday while ending my “regular” riding on my exerise bike, I tried something different. It seems to work out well, so I thought I’d share it.
Using my leg with the bionic knee, I pedal with just that leg. I’ll start calling it my “one-legged maneuver”. This is when the foot straps come in real handy. Without those, this maneuver would be very difficult (if not impossible).
For an even better workout, I find it works great to go in reverse. 🙂 I consider both of these moves a great workout since I work up quite a sweat.
Note: While doing this one-legged workout on my total knee replacement leg, it sure does help to have arm handles to hold on to. Actually, it’s not just that I’m holding on to them. I squeeze those things so tight, if they were human – they’d be screaming.
Anyways, it’s fun to find new exercises to add to the total knee replacement recuperation process.
