A person needs some exercise.
If you don't do something you will end up having to learn new alterations. That's that.
I know this, but really am too busy to go to a gym I like something I can do at home with only the dogs watching.
However after the big fix-up I was given a list of exercises I was not supposed to do if I were going to avoid another hoist up of the insides (TMI but this is just between us).
In trying to reconcile all of this I found a fantastic free app that is both pelvic floor safe but also really effective.
It covers all the basis, including stretches which are important, and has three levels.
I need to stress however that although these are safe exercises for folks like me that is mainly because a lot of them are done on the exercise ball but are also serious and suitable for the general population.
I have this loaded onto my iPad, the one I dropped and now is held together with Scotch tape to the embarrassment of my children (it still works, so what's the big deal? Your mother has no need to be cool). The workouts are simple and show you a quick video of each exercise if you want before you do it. There is also a clock you watch to tell you when you have done enough.
At any rate this is worth sharing, really a first class and simple way to avoid the need to learn more alterations.
The link for the app is here.
