Please note that there are 2 ways provided to do these exercises. The second option is the easier of the 2 shown.
Laying flat on your back, bend your knees and keep feet flat on the bed. Raise your hips up off of the bed and hold for 5 seconds. Lower hips back to the bed and then repeat. Do this exercise 5-10 times and at least 3 times daily. This exercise will strengthen your hip extensors which you need to help you get up and down from chairs, do stairs or even pushing yourself up higher in bed.

The second option-standing, holding onto the kitchen counter or sink, extend leg behind you then return 10-15 times each leg. If you are unsteady have someone stand next to you while doing these.

Do we really need to post these succeeding exercises under separate post? We already have a thread for Top 5 Strengthening exercises for Parkinson's and as of now it has only one exercise in that thread.

Then again, doing it in separate posts allows everyone to try an exercise and learn it before progressing to the next and while subsequent posts will stay at the top of the queue, a single post might progress to the bottom and fall off the list, making it harder to quickly locate.

Each individual post could be copy/pasted to a text file if someone wanted to print them off for reference.

I think listing the "top 5" under one post would be more convenient for those who were interested in doing these. That way they could copy and paste them into a document, print them and stick them on the fridge or whatever at their ready. Under one post, all in the same reply.....
Then if anyone had any questions they could come after that in replies........
