I love daily Burn and have lost about 7 pounds in the last 2 weeks but I am recovering from an accident.
My calves were crushed and I have a few problems still with my knees, is there anyway to gain stability in my knees?by: susanbrockerman
SO proud of you for an incredible start on your journey! When you say you crushed your calves, did you tear them? Did you have surgery? Have you gone to rehab?? A huge thing with calves is that they really do effect your stability as often when they are hurt you tend to favor them and therefore put more stress into other places of your body. Definitely take your time and be patient with yourself. True Beginner is a great series for gaining strength and mobility especially if you are coming back from an injury. But also consider the need to consult a physical therapist as I mentioned above! Let me know how it goes!
As anjag said, if you haven't talked to a/your physical therapist recently, you really need to do that. They will be qualified to tell you, medically speaking, what you are cleared to do and not do.
But just speaking generally, I think some real strength work would benefit you. I personally am combining DailyBurn was a gym routine and that might benefit you as well.
I go to the gym twice a week to focus on heavy weight lifting/strength training and four other days I have DailyBurn workouts planned. Definitely talk it over with your therapist to see if they agree, but some traditional weight training to strengthen your legs and the muscles around your knees might help.
Just an idea.
