Hello, my name is Amber Nimedez-Lyftogt with LIVESTRONG.COM, and today I'm going to teach you a few exercises to stay fit with an ACL tear. So, the first exercise, we're going to actually come down onto a mat and we're going to do a few leg lifts. So, I'm going to have you lay down on your back and then place your hands behind your head, keep one knee bent and extend the other leg and then you're going to just raise the leg up and down. And you're going to do this ten times. And then you're going to do the other side. So, extend the other leg out and then lift up and down for about ten times. The second exercise we're going to work the outer part of the leg. So, you're just going to flip on over to your side. Prop yourself up on your elbow and then you can actually hold your head here. Flex your feet and then you're going to lift the leg up and down, up and down. And you'll feel this in the outer part of the hip and these are muscles that we really need to stabilize with the ACL tear. And you'll do ten on this side and then you also want to do the other side. So, again, I'm propping myself up of my elbow, making sure that I'm in alignment, lifting up and down for about ten. And then the last exercise, you're going to do mini-squats. So, feet about hip distance apart. Feet pointing straight ahead and then you're going to bend down just a mini-squat and then stand right back up, squeezing the, squeezing your gluts. You're going to go down and then up. Down and up. And then keeping your chest up nice and tall, squeezing those gluts as you come up. So, those are three exercises that you can do to stay fit with an ACL tear. My name is Amber Nimedez-Lyftogt with LIVESTRONG.COM.
