Re: Exercising while NWB?

I've been thinking about this too. My whole workout routine is going to have to change as running was my main go-to for cardio pre-surgery and I'd like to start to ease back into some type of routine adding on to it as I can. I don't really enjoy the elliptical or bike as much as running, but I think it's going to be my best option. I've been riding the bike for a few minutes to warm up at PT and it feels great, so I was thinking of asking my PT today if I can try this at the gym and see how it feels. I'd love to get into something more (e.g., strength) but not sure what's ok for me to do. I feel like such a slug since I haven't been able to work out for the 10 weeks before surgery, never mind the months before that when I was in too much pain to work out.
