There are many today that exercise may seem to be out of the question because of physical limitations. Back injuries, knee surgeries, and other physical ailments that interfere with our mobility tells us that we cannot exercise. Guess what we can. Okay we won’t run a marathon or compete in a gymnastics meet, but there are exercises you can find that will not harm you but impact your health in a beneficial way.
Today we can do this exercise while lying in our bed.
- The knee bend
Do each leg separately. Bring knee up to chest level. Do not touch chest or strain in any way to bring knee past a comfortable point. Straighten up leg and touch it down on the bed or floor. Repeat the number of repetitions you have attained or until you start to feel the muscles hurt or get tired if below that mark. Do this with the other leg. Remember to breathe. Breathing in and out of your nose is best because our noses filter the air we breathe while mouth breathing causes our throats to dry.
If you like to exercise in the morning here is a good scripture to begin your day.
Psalm 5:3 (KJV) My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Keeping my mind on Jesus while He holds my heart.
