Another Hamstring Exercise

Strengthening the hamstrings (muscles along the backside of the knee) is important for everyone, especially us tkr recipients. I found another way to exercise this muscle recently and thought I’d share. Please remember it’s been almost three years since my tkr, so don’t try this if you’re new to the tkr recuperation stage.

You need a reclining chair for this exercise. The kind that requires manually pushing the foot portion down while returning to the upright position is needed.

Instead of using your good knee to push the section down, use your tkr leg. Push on the extended segment with your ankle and calf. You are bound to feel your hamstring muscle working. In my case, I cannot completely return to chair segment to the original position, but can apply enough pressure to work my muscle. Your situation may differ.

Try this and see if it works. You may be surprised how weak your hamstring still is (as in my case). I could barely even make a dent on my original attempt. Yikes..

Take it easy while doing this maneuver and don’t blame me if anything goes wrong. (disclaimer here..)

Good luck! Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…

  • Haven’t submitted much in such a long time, will you remember me! chuckle.
    Anyway, I am back in Pain and Torture. I was having so much trouble with ROM, it was down to 82. After three week of PT I am up to 105, but it has been tears and agony. I am a fighter though and when he was ready to quit and give me a rest, I said, one more time. It only went up one degree but but that is ok, one degree high than it was when we were almost ready to quit. He told me I had the stiffest knee he had ever worked on. Ouch!
    I am going to have try this one and see how it goes.
    Hope all is well with you. I am now 4 years out on the hip and will be four in July with the knee. Life goes on and I am loving it.

    Hello! Of course I remember you…you Pittsburgh Penguin fan. 🙂 I was just thinking about you, actually…wondering how you’ve been. That’s disheartening about your lack of flexibility. Mine is staying at 93. It’s better than before my tkr, so I’m not complaining, either.
    Hang in there and keep in touch!!
