New Abs Exercise & TKR

Hi Everyone!
I haven’t been on here for a bit since I was playing some flute gigs and having a welcomed break from a computer screen. I went to the beach, walked for awhile and watched the ocean waves. There is nothing like it to relax and rejuvenate the soul. 🙂

While I was there, I “discovered” another abdominal exercise. Only, this one is pure fun. Thought I’d pass it along so you can take advantage…

It involves swinging (on a swing set, in case you’re wondering….). To gain momentum, lean back as far as you’re comfortable with. Extend your legs as straight as possible. This starts the swinging process. Go through the regular process of swinging. As you gain height, you can start sitting up like a “normal” person.

I didn’t realize how this affected my abs until the next day. The pain was not intense at all. It was just noticeable enough to let me know that my abs got a work out.

Cool, eh? Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

P.S. I couldn’t do this maneuver until about a year after my tkr, in case anyone is wondering. It was too painful before that time period.

Find interesting? Kindly share….
