Step by Step

  1. This exercise works your Triceps, Pecs and Anterior Deltoids
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. Sit on a bench and place your hands down at shoulder width apart on the edge of the bench
  5. Next walk your feet out away from the bench so that they are far enough in front that your body has space to lower down in front of the bench.
  6. Next bend your elbows to lower your body down towards the floor. Don’t allow your shoulders to shrug upwards throughout. Once you have gone down as far as you can the push back up y straightening your elbows until they are straight
  7. You can make the exercise harder by placing your feet onto something higher and then adding a weight onto your thighs
  8. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  9. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  10. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  11. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue
  12. You should perform 3-5 sets with no more than 30 second rests
  13. This session can be done 2-3 times per week

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
