Rehabilitation from home we are here to help
Help, my house is not a gym!
A well-equipped gym at home is not an option for most of us. And that is not necessary at all, because with little equipment you can already do a lot of things. With some creativity, you can also do a solid workout with everyday objects. For example, books or water bottles can perfectly serve as weights, cushions as an unstable surface and old bicycle tires as a resistance band.
Help, am I doing these exercises correctly?
We try to help you as much as possible through training schedules and videos. However, your physiotherapist will not be there to check on you... Or will he? With SQUADT we offer video consultations, allowing us to correct you remotely. We can go over your exercises and focus on your points of attention, compensations and progress.
In any case, look for a mirror and look at yourself while doing the exercises. Think about the tips and tricks your physiotherapist gave you in the past. Lost your way? Hang a print-out of your workout, with all the right poses, in the room where you do your exercises.
Help, how often should I do my exercises?
There is no golden rule. Ideally, you should repeat your exercises about 3 to 4 times a week. Do you only do your exercises once a week? Then your muscles will not get enough stimuli to make progress. In any case, do set a limit for yourself and don't overdo it. Give your muscles one day to recover every time. So alternate your days with cardio, strength (exercises) and, of course, the necessary days of rest.
Help, I've lost my motivation to do my exercises...
Doing exercises at home requires more discipline, that's right. But now is the perfect time to work on that. If you are with your physiotherapist, of course you have no choice but to do your exercises. Now you have the freedom to decide when to do them, for how long and how intensively. This freedom can be just as difficult to deal with... Believe us, we know!
Our golden advice: plan ahead! Make it a routine to do your exercises on certain days at specific times. In the morning before breakfast, for example, or in the evening before dinner. It’s entirely up to you. It could be a good idea to write your weekly exercise schedule on a whiteboard, for example.
Help, I really can't manage on my own...
Don't worry, we are still here to help you, so you don't have to do this all by yourself. SQUADT won’t leave you struggling! We can still do your exercises together via video consultations. Moreover, during the COVID-19 period they are fully reimbursed, so you don't have to worry about that. We got you.
