are you able to do one legged exercises? or even squats without a bar say holding some light weights at your side or even using a trap bar? If you are able start by conditioning your body first. I would also if i were you add a routine of stretching for the hips, hip flexors and the glutes.
If your lucky your gym will have a ham-glute machine, this will work your glutes hamstrings, lower back and calves. I really wish your gym has one but its not likely.
good luck [/quote]
Thanks for the suggestions. The only ham/glute machine I have ever seen was in Adirondack gym. Here I use the 20kg bar to provide some resistance. Squats and Good Mornings give me some glutes work but obviously nowhere near what I used to do. For the glutes and back there is always the hip extension (moving the rest up and down shifts the emphasis), but the real issue is that the longevity of the prosthesis is directly linked the the stress it gets.I spend a lot of time on the stationary bike to provide load under controlled circumstances.
I’ll just keep at it. 54 years and counting.
