One-Legged Maneuver on Exercise Bike

Hi everyone. Yesterday while ending my “regular” riding on my exerise bike, I tried something different for my tkr recuperation program. It seems to work out well, so I thought I’d share it.It is a one-legged maneuver on exercise bike.

Using my bionic-key leg, 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 grimacing.

Anyways, it’s fun to find new exercises to add to the total knee replacement recuperation process.

I’m pooped.

  1. I find it is easier to go backwards at first too. Seems to give the knee a more passive route the first few times around. Now that you mentioned working the leg using just that one, I am going to have to try that at PT. My home bike does not have straps.
    I ended up back at PT for ultra sound massage and will be doing that for the next two weeks. I does help. The physical therapist also told me to stretch out on each side of the scar with the heel of my hand, holding for as long as i can stand it, until I feel the burn.
