Thanks to dislocating my knee seven months ago, I had to rehab, and that forced me to think about working out. I now go three tiems a week to work out. Ido twenty mintues on the bike, twen on the stairmaster, eight on the UBE, and then start weights. I do my chest, triceps, biceps, shoulders, and then a few machines that I’m not even sure what they exercise.
For my legs, I do a leg press, leg curls, and leg extensions, as well as working on my calves… my left calf is extremely out of shape. STUPID KNEE. oh well, what can you do. Muscle atrophy at its finest…May 10, 2005 at 2:51 pm #4477
once you get confident enough you should do squats and deadlifts. Great exercises for your lower body. Actually, the squat is the single best exercise for you. It works the whole body.
btw, what’s a UBE? :what:May 10, 2005 at 3:20 pm #4481AnonymousInactive
To tell you the truth, I don’t know how to explain it… Umm… You basically jsut use these handles and move your amrs continuously around in a circle, with any amount of resistance you want… I don’t think they are actually called UBE’s, I think that is the company that made these particular ones, but I am not sure what else to call them.
Also, squats are still kinda beyond my left knee’s capacity, unfortunately. And what exactly is a deadlift?May 10, 2005 at 5:11 pm #4494AnonymousInactive
Deadlifts are when you have one dumbell on each hand and you bendover forward using your legs (not you back) as your resistance. It really works out your lower body. Great excercise, but keep your back straight!May 10, 2005 at 5:30 pm #4495
Actually, real deadlifts are done with a barbell. ” title=”Wink” />

Either one would work, I improvise with the dumbells.May 10, 2005 at 6:12 pm #4497
I often end up scraping my legs with the bar, but it’s ok. It makes me look tough…” title=”Razz” />
With dumbbells I suppose you don’t have to worry about that.
