    Good workouts around a bad hip?

    Hi all! I usually do professional PT for my hip - I have a severely damaged labrum and was supposed to have surgery on it last month (would've been the third surgery) that was cancelled. I know what to do for my hip/legs, but does anyone have specific darebee workouts they like to use that don't cause hip strain? Or ways you can modify exercises?

    I still want to work my core and do dynamic exercises but a lot of it involves a deep bend of your hip. (And there's so much to look for!) I've been told that I can't really damage my hip further, just cause pain, by accidentally doing the wrong exercise. I'm 24, so I can handle more than the minimum. Thanks

    Not sure what your abilities are but What about low impact type workout? https://darebee.com/programs/foundat...t-program.html

    If it is too soon for lower body exercises, how about only working your upper body until you get our PT to give you a lower body program?

    I have had both my shoulders reconstructed surgically and I went through this. I did only lower body workouts for eight months and of course the Physio Therapy. I did bodyweight squats, lunges and walking on the spot because I couldn't bounce around. Eventually I got back to working my upper body after my PT cleared it. So for you it may be you will be working your upper body for a while.

      I hadn't seen the Foundation workout, thank you! I can do lower body exercises I just do all of my at-home PT stuff. But I guess it is as simple as sorting for upper body!

        Welcome to the HIVE!

        Working around any problem is challenging. I guess, most of it would be knowing what you can and can't do. Exercise modification would be dependent upon that. However, here are a few things you can try:
        1. Time and duration
        2. Range of Tension
        3. Speed and Tempo
        4. Move hands/feet towards your centerline
        5. Lever length of technique
        6. Shifting weight to working limb(s)
        7. Angle of gravity
        8. Adjusting weight
        9. Improve tension control

        With these variables, you might combine them to make good substitutions for yourself. For example, if squats give you a hard time then you might do some leg extensions. Here, you might do Iso-Dynamic versions of them and for longer times, you could speed up the reps, and so on. Hope this helps in some way.
