Using Rowing Machines as a Total Knee Replacement exercise

Hi my favorite readers! While gaining flexibility in my knee after a total knee replacement, the rowing machine works out pretty well. The seat can be adjusted, either stationary or moving.  The moving function offers me a chance to gain the most flexibility.  Even when not using the handle bars (similar to using paddles or oars), the moving seat offers a pretty good leg workout. it definitely gives a good upper body workout, which helps increase the circulation.

As much as using the rowing machine helps with my knee’s flexibility, I believe the exercise bike is more beneficial.  However, one makes do with what is available. 🙂

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
