exercise while recovering from surgery
An_246571 posted:
I am 60 years old, and had been working out twice a week with a personal trainer for nearly 3 years, when I needed to stop 2 weeks to have surgery for my rotator cuff and a biceps tenotomy . I have been doing the exercises the surgeon's physical therapist has given me to strengthen my shoulder/arm, but I am feeling a bit sluggish overall and need to get back to workouts for the rest of my body. Most of the types of exercise that I did with the trainer required my upper body, so I can't do them for a while, perhaps as much as 6 months or more. I am not much of a walker (I tended to do combination cardio and strength workouts indoors, mainly with limited equipment such as exercise, resistance and suspension bands, and stability balls, since I travel a lot on business and need things I can do in a hotel room or with limited resources). Any recommendations or sources I can pursue for that? Thank you!
