This client walks and does basic upper body exercise, plus some Qigong. Besides general lower body and core conditioning, figured I’d teach how to move from seated position in chair onto one knee (with other foot planted flat)and upper body partly supported on chair, to quadruped position,then reverse sequence to get back onto chair. Also will teach how to roll over from supine and press up to quadruped, then step one foot forward similar to above. Any other ideas?? Thanks!
Can he do wall pushups to increase his upper body strength?
I have my clients start by sitting on two pillows and learn how to get up from them.
It seems the floor is daunting to some
Once they do two, they sit on one then finally the floor.
The methods you describe are right on actually.
Possibly practicing on the pillows will help with his technique in the long run.
