  • pool moves

    I was injured at work (torn meniscus) and am in PT. I need to go to the pool daily and while I have things to do for my knees/legs, I would love to add some things to work on the rest of me (ankles, hips, abs, and arms (particularly upper)/shoulders) if that's possible. I see this as a way to get into the habit of a daily regimen and really getting started on working out/in a routine. I know some moves wouldn't work in the pool, but are there some that would be good?

    I wish you a full recovery. Good question! I'm wondering if you have tried any of the moves adapted to chair -- those might be possible. Out of the pool, on a chair, you may have adapt or forego some of the activation such as klt, etc if that bothers your knee.

    Here ares some links to chair workouts to give you an idea:

    arm sequence, sampler from Amazon:
    foot moves:

    I encourage you to show them to your PT or sign-up skype session with a trainer if those are possible:
    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

      Thank you! I will check those out. That looks to be right along the lines I'm thinking. I'll check out the videos. I appreciate your help.

        Great k-bear! BlessedMama, I'm wondering if you recommend any modification or other suggestions?

      I hope you heal quickly! That sounds painful. Berei had surgery once and her doctor said she could do T-Tapp instead of PT! Of course she had Teresa as her personal trainer, I wouldn't advise anyone to do it all alone, lol.

      If you're doing things like pool walking, you could see if it's possible to keep belly button to spine and tailbone tucked.

      I got to meet and workout with Teresa in 2014. I am forever grateful to her and will never forget her.

        Lisa, if she does the new roll out from the hip joints and ankle activate, this pushes knees out without pushing them out, correct? I am wondering if she can do that in the pool too while walking?

        It would be more of a challenge in the pool, but if you take it slowly and mindfully, it could work!

      k-bear, trainer Michelle Barbuto tore her meniscus and credited Senior Fit to helping rehab it! Main techniques that help from that workout are weight in heels before pushing knees out. Of course you're already doing PT in the pool for the knee. The other suggestions you got to work on the other parts of your body are great. You could do T-Tapp Twist, Senior Fit style in the pool for a little more resistance on the arms. Really focus on ribs up and engage the lats to help stability. Belly button up and back to spine as mentioned are good--obviously you won't be quite as "tucked" as out of the pool, but you will still work that core!

      I have held onto the side of my pool and done Balance. PIgeon toe the foot a bit and lift to the side, then bend knee and lift in front, then out to the side. I wouldn't do this without hanging on so you don't lose balance and jerk that knee! And of course if you feel that is not a good one for now, omit and try later when your knee is more stable.

      Hope these tips help!
