Here are three example exercises for an early phase of muscle recovery after surgery:
Exercise 1: One leg stabilization exercise
Starting position is a slightly angled monopod stand on the affected leg. Now tap the floor with the toe of the other leg in maximum reach, one after the other to the front, left, right and back.
Then repeat this exercise at least 10 times.
Exercise 2: Standing scale
The starting position is an upright stand with feet apart about hip width. Now shift the body weight to one leg and lift the other leg backwards. Bend forward with straight back. Make this movement from the hip joint. Then simultaneously lift the arms to the side. Back and leg form a line in the end position.
Hold this position for ten seconds. Then change the supporting leg and repeat the exercise 5 times with each side.
Exercise 3: One Legged Bridge
Start position is lying on the back, one leg is set up at an angle of approx. 100°, the other leg is straight. The thighs are parallel to each other. Now bring hip and buttocks in a straight line to the maximum, so that the whole body forms a line.
Repeat the exercise with both legs in two rounds 10 times.
