Hi guys... Here's a post I made months ago... http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...e-for-Exercise
Was posted in the wrong section... I've learned more since. I want to do something ASAP... I also should have been more detailed when I initially posted. From what I can tell, my quads are what have ended up being weak. Calves a little too. But quads primarily. If there is a step to climb up that is higher than average (Like 2 feet) I pretty much need a hand to get up it. If i'm on one knee. I can get up without using my hands. Those are my strength issues. It's because I've always walked a little differently. I don't bend my knees like I am supposed to. My achilles tendon was not the right length and that's why I had the surgery. To lengthen it. So, I know this is not a physical therapy board, but will a stationary or regular bike strengthen that muscles and help me be able to climb higher stairs and get up when I'm on the ground? That's my concern. I've tried the gym. I have a membership. I go a few weeks, then it ends. I just have so many things going on and having a stationary bike would be something I could do every day at home. Suggestions and thoughts appreciated!
