    Hello Brian

    I have arthritis (particularly bad in one knee which is always swollen) as well as having trouble with tightness of the ilio-tibial band. I recently saw a physio who started me with a range of stretches and static quads twice a day.

    She then moved me onto squats twice a day instead of the static quads. I'd like to know what you think. I've wondered if the squats should be done every second day. And then I wonder if it's ok to do static quads twice a day AND squats every second day.

    I also want to know more about the difference between the squats and static quads as types of exercise. One being isometric, the other being (?), and what do they mean in terms of uses, actions and recommended frequency.

    Also, I live in Adelaide and have seen you in the distance making a fitness video in the park. It made me smile. I wonder if there might be a local group of Gabriel Method folk who meet somewhere here.

    Thanks for doing the videos for us Brian.

      Unfortunately hard for me to say what is best for you however I am sure your physio has the correct techniques for helping you.
      As the ITB's are giving you pain and certainly wouldn't help the arthritis I would like you to watch this clip I did

      hope that helps.
      Next time you're in the park make sure to say G'Day!
      Thanks for your post,
      Brian

    Hi Brian
    I have a question about knee exercises. What can I do to strengthen my knees. Sometime while exercising I'm fine to do deep squats. On other days my knees may ache a little so is it best not to do anything at all or should I do some slight ( ie not as deep) squats? Are there any good knee exercises that are less weight bearing?
    Sorry this is not holiday related. Thanks, Natalie

    Hi Brian, Apologies that my question is not perhaps wholly pertinent to the topic of exercising while travelling, but I have just been diagnosed as being Vitamin D deficient. I knew something was wrong when I was exercising, I had alot of pain in my muscles and joints that was far beyond feeling a bit 'stretched' after exercising. I obviously stopped (I was doing 10 minutes of minimum effect dose type exercising daily - I lasted a week!) but now I'm on supplements and would like to start exercising again - when and how often and what would you suggest? Many thanks.

    • Brian Killian -Gabriel Method Coach says:

      Hi Mhairi,
      thanks for your question it is a good one.
      Vitamin D is so important for good health as you have felt when your levels have dropped. Glad to hear you now have that under control.
      In so far as exercise goes I would suggest your focus intitally would be on being 'bendy'. If you look through the videos I have created I'd encourage you to follow me through some of the stretching ones.
      As your vitalilty levels improve you may wish to add some resistance training with a break every second day at least.
      The High Intensity training would be the last component to add.
      Hope this gives you some direction, but getting bendy will be a great start.
      All the best,
      Brian
