Lower Body Exercises For Pain Management & To Stay In Shape


This month we’re going to talk about a few more exercises that you can be doing at home. Great for runners, great for general knee pain, great just to help keep you in shape. As always, exercises are only good if you do them, so we like to come up with exercises that you can do at home. It doesn’t take a lot of time to do, but they can have a lot of benefits in the long run for you. A lot of times, people are going to be getting out running now. They’re biking, walking, etc. Some of the exercises we are going to go over this month will be excellent for that. We are going to focus on working the lower extremities.

I always believe, as does Brian,  is that if you don’t have good lower body, it doesn’t matter how big your arms are because you still can’t get from point A to point B. You need the lower body, so we put a lot of emphasis on lower body exercises. This month we’re going to focus on some more lower body exercises that you can do at home, and make them as easy or as difficult as needed depending on your skill level.  Like I said, you don’t have to be a runner. You don’t have to be an athlete. It’s good for just general health because you’re always going to have to be able to get up and down from a sitting position. You need those legs!

So in our next set of videos, we will show a series of exercises – all that you can do from home – that will help your lower body no matter your skill level. Stay tuned to our YouTube channel as we give you a few exercise suggestions that can help with it. We’ll go over them here in the next few videos.

The Importance Of Exercising At Home During COVID-19

Hi. Mark and Ringo here at Fyzical. Ringo’s practicing good health here during this time.  So, one thing I’ve been hearing from patients is we are going to come out of this with either having to go to Weight Watchers or Alcoholics Anonymous. The facts are if you don’t want to be the one having to go to Weight Watchers, you need to be doing exercises. Just because gyms are closed and where you might be exercising in the past you can’t get into now doesn’t give you a free pass. You’ve got all kinds of options you can do at home. You have to keep moving. This is not an excuse just to sit down and park yourself.

What I am very big on, and if you followed anything that I’ve talked about, are lower body exercises, specifically glutes. Why? Because you have to get from point A to point B. If you can curl up to 2,000 pounds but you can’t walk across the floor, it’s not going to help you. You need to be doing lower body exercises. You could do them very easily at home and you no excuses for not doing them. I’m going to show you what you can do.

First thing, though, is if you’re spending more time sitting and being at computers, it’s important that you stand every 30 minutes, even if you only take five or 10 seconds, but get out of that seated position. It is important to refresh everything, stretch everything out, then sit back down. Too many people are finding themselves sitting there for hours and they look up at the clock and they realize it’s afternoon already and they haven’t moved. Try to make yourself get up every 30 minutes.
