Aquatic Leap Frogging & a TKR

Hello my favorite readers! I’ve written before about the benefits of exercising in the water anytime, especially after a tkr. There’s no pain, movement is easier and more fluid plus…it’s just downright fun! Here’s a “maneuver” I came up with that helps increase flexibility and strength. Even though this article is geared towards those of us having a tkr, anyone can benefit from this exercise.

This exercise will work the abdominal muscles (do it enough and you’ll probably get those “6-pack abs”..:)), the inner quads and knee joints. You will feel your knees bend, so you’re working on your knee flexibility. You’re arms will also get a good workout. What do you have to lose?

You remember playing leap frog as a kid? Someone gets onto their hands and knees in front of you and you “hop” over them. You place your hands onto their back and separate your legs while pushing up with your feet. Well, this exercise reminded me of that movement process, so I call it the “Leap Frog Maneuver”…It’s much easier to do in water, however. Much, much easier. 🙂

Get into shoulder-deep water. Stand up straight, without slouching your back. Bring your legs up and out, as if you’re spread-eagling yourself. At the same time you separate your legs, bring your arms together in front of your body. Turn your hands facing downward and place your fingers together to form a “hand cup”. Straighten your arms in front of your body. Bring your arms down between your legs. Keep doing this maneuver for as long as you feel comfortable. Me…I like about 20 times. Be prepared, though. It’s a workout.

There…that’s it. Try it, you will like it. Enjoy!

Of course, if you’re still new to the tkr recuperation phase, check with your doctor before doing this exercise. Remember, it’s been almost 4 years since my tkr…I wasn’t allowed to do aquatic exercises when initially recuperating from my tkr. I needed land exercises then. You may be different.

Find interesting? Kindly share…
