Road to Recovery Workout: Weekend Workout!

workout with a neck braceRecently, I wrote about how to modify your workout so that you can create a road to recovery workout. With my broken neck, the only activity that I’m cleared to do right now is walk. However, I think it’s wise to keep my body healthy during this time. That means that I also perform light core exercises and some basic stretches.

Since I have very specific training that taught me how to modify Pilates exercises for people with or recovering from injuries, I thought the best way to illustrate a modified workout would be to show you what I’m doing at home.

Road to Recovery Workout

Before I walk and sometimes before I start my day, I practice these 6 exercises.

  1. Correct neutral alignment
  2. Breathing
  3. Leg slides
  4. Leg lift
  5. Hip release
  6. Windshield wiper legs

After walking or whenever I feel like I need some stretching, I practice these 5 poses.

  1. Dandasana
  2. Paschimottanasana
  3. Baddha konasana
  4. Virasana
  5. Windshield wiper legs
