Leg Strengthening Exercises
Leg strengthening exercises can help if you are experiencing weakness in your legs or if you are suffering from restlessness in your legs due to diabetes or even recuperating after surgeries like arthroscopy. Lets take a look at few good exercises
Lie on your back and bring or slide your knee towards your buttocks. Slide it as much towards your buttocks as you can and hold it for a few seconds. This exercise is particularly useful if you are recovering after surgery or a fall. They are also good exercises to keep your leg muscles strengthened.
Lie on you back and press the back of your knee towards the floor. Try and hold for a few seconds before releasing them.
Lie on you back and lift your legs up. Hold this position for few seconds. Repeat a few times.
Lie on your side and raise the leg about 15 inches. Hold position for 8-10 seconds. Repeat this few times on both sides.
Lie on one side. Lift the other leg and rest at about 2 feet of the ground using a support. Now move the leg that’s on the floor towards the lifted leg. Hold position for ten seconds and slowly withdraw.
Lying on your stomach raise you leg backwards about 10 inches and hold the position for a few seconds. Repeat 4-5 times.
