March 28 Physical Therapy

Here are some shots of me doing physical therapy. I do this five days a week for about two hours. On my days off, or when my legs feel tight, I also use an stationary bike for about 20 minutes.
Standing apparatus - 30-40 minutes/day.

Arm and shoulder cuff stretches. This right side (weaker and more atrophied side) workout hurts like hell!

Boxing exercise.

Hip lifts. "No Mercy" James makes me do 20 of these things! I am exhausted by the time I'm through, but I'm doing more than I started with (10).

Leg stretches and leg push.
Walking straight. James is pushing down on my hips as I walk.
