An Isometric Exercise for TKR

Hi my favorite readers! Here is an isometric exercise that has been very helpful to me during my tkr process, so I thought I would share it in hopes of it helping you. Plus, it is an easy one that can be done anywhere in your home. It is a good exercise both before surgery and during the recuperation process. There is no equipment needed, which makes it even better.

Gluteus Maximus/Buttocks. Tighten your buttock muscles and hold for 5-10 seconds. Do repetitions of 10. Increase as desired. Not only will this help strengthen your muscles for your total knee replacement, it will help you develop a “killer butt” (or so I’m told…:? ).

Good luck!

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    I will add this to my list of exercises!

    I have to tell you and anyone else lurking….that, today…..I had the BEST day ever since my surgery! I worked almost and 8 hour day without taking a lunch……and my leg overall feels great! I took a pain pill about 8AM….and I sat down several times during the day, but today, I felt almost normal again! What a relief!

    The weekend was tough, and even yesterday morning I was nearly in tears again, thinking this was NEVER going to get better and feeling more depressed than ever…….what a difference a day makes!

    Tomorrow is another day (but I’m off work) so we’ll see what the day brings!

    YAY…for the great day!


    ps , it’s 3 months today since my TKR…….

    ok booktoots,
    i am doing this excercise as i am replying to you. i sure home it works. i could really use a killer butt as the summer is around the corner. keep the great info coming. especially the ones that don’t involve using my aching knee. take care.

  • Has anyone noticed an increase in pain when using a laptop on your lap?
    i am on week 7, I wake up pain-free but as soon as I put my Mac on to my bed to collect my emails, the pain starts. Radio beams? battery heat? connecting with the metal in my knee? anyone else noticed this?
