I have a bosu and use it for cardio sometimes. If you have a step DVD you can substitute the bosu for the step and work your core.

I love the idea about crossing your arms in front of you -- I'll try it!

What you eat in private you wear in public.

You are what you eat!

thanks again Angela!
I've had to ditch the meds the doctor gave, I felt like I was about to keel over or throw up.
Have gone back to paracetamol and Ibuprofen.

Love this team, you're so helpful! emoticon emoticon

Welcome!

I did lots of crunches, with my arms crossed over my chest. They don't have to be boring ones on the floor. You can do incline crunches, back extensions on a Roman chair, etc.

I liked that position so much, I STILL do all those things with my arms crossed. I think it's actually harder. :-)

You can do side crunches if you can figure out how to brace yourself with your legs. Get creative.

And ask your phisiotherapist for suggestions, too. They can often be convinced to basically come up with a weight lifting programme. (I used mine like a medical-oriented personal trainer, and he actually loved it.) Strength training and exercise can really aid in healing, as long as you program in proper recovery periods. They help with circulation, etc. And make sure you are getting plenty of protein, because that helps with recovery too.

The pain meds may cause constipation, so make sure you're getting fibre with that protein, too. lolol

Let us know how it goes!

Never, ever, EVER give up!

I am new to the team and it's comforting to know there is an exercise life after injury as I enjoy working out.
I'm hoping I'm doing the right thing by moving my right shoulder gently for now until I have some physio (being arranged by my GP as I speak) and keeping to Genie sits and crunchless core workouts. And when I do, do crunches I fold my arms across my chest.
Would love to know of any safe exercises for obliques as I find Russian Twists, Advanced Wood Chops and Dumbbell sidebends now painful to attempt so am playing safe.

I'm also keeping up lower body ST so I don't rely on my arm to haul myself out of chairs etc but I really miss UB workouts (lateral pull downs being my favourite and probably my downfall LOL).
Any advice would be welcome -promise I shall be a good girl til after physio.

And, Angela, if you read this- I am grateful to the links you've put up and found them really useful........you my friend are a Godsend emoticon emoticon
