If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated. ...Read more

Lunges are also great for the quads, as are leg extension machines if you belong to a gym (since the primary role of the quad is to extend your leg). ...Read more

What weight exercises can a C5/6 Quad do? I have a Uppertone machine but it is worn out. What can I do to get in shape that costs very little.
C5/6 QUAD: Hello KevinF14, to correctly answer this one has to do a neuro exam to see what movement you have at that level, because C5/6 involves biceps, triceps(C5,6,7), deltoids and rotator cuff and rhomboids and trapezius, serratus anterior, so you only have levator scapulae to shrug. I would have a trainer or PT evaluate your residual movt to accurately respond to this thx ...Read more

Don't push so hard!: 1st drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Then take it easy ie no exercise for next several days until you're better. Next time, don't push so far, so fast, so hard.
