Bend and Squat


I am determined to be able to bend down to the ground to pick something up without moaning and popping like someone twice my age. I would also love to be able to put my socks on without assisted devises, clip my toe nails and shave my legs easily. Improved range of motion is what I am hankering for.

To this end I have been doing my strengthening exercises as prescribed by my physical therapist. Consequently my thigh muscles are so sore I can barely walk much less squat down to the floor.

Good grief, it is awful to be old before my time. But, I press on.
