Silly Sunday: How I Used My Underwear to Get Healthy

It's not Sunday or even that close but I figure some of you might be busy if I waited to post at my usual time, so here goes early. Besides, it's Sunday in New Zealand where Rhonda starts her Silly Sunday at Laugh Quotes.



 Back in October I injured my knee while running and had to go to physical therapy. One of the many exercises my therapist assigned was the "penguin walk." This involves putting a band around the ankles and taking side steps. Unfortunately, he forgot to give me the band.




So I improvised. I have a pair of elastic underwear that have quite a bit of stretch in them. These came in handy when doing the penguin walk.


If that isn't silly on a Sunday, nothing is.

If you need more silliness than using underwear to exercise, hop over to Rhonda's Silly Sunday.

Watch where you step! I'll bet you saved bunches by not buying that band:) Smart gal. Happy holidays to ya...

Thanks for the comments. Actually, the band comes with the physical therapy, so it didn't cost me anything when I finally got it; however, I feel like my underwear provide more resistance and gives me a better work out. ;)

I injured my right shoulder and was told to buy the band (it's about 10$ in israeli money).
I did a lot of things besides using the band, so I'm not sure it was the band that helped.

After a year, I also got my right knee injured during a trip. This time I used my own intuition - no band, no physioteraphy , and it took less time to heal than with the shoulder.Thank God!

That is quite useful. I also look around the house for alternative items.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

That right there is some seriously awesome improvisation. Just don't tell the physiotherapist. He'll probably claim the idea as his own and charge others ONE MILLION DOLLARS to use it.

so funny... they look like boys speedos, though?

Actually the green strip is not underwear. It is the stretchy band that I finally got from my physical therapist. The black around my ankles is the underwear.

Pity, my dad has a few of those bands laying around the house. He's suppose to use them...but I don't think I've seen him use them in months and months.
