Also wondered why my right foot goes up when i lean right on my chair? Please any input would be appreciated ! Nobody can tell me what this means!
    When I read your story I see mine....with a lot of effort I get muscle flickers in the areas I want to contract muscles. But I need a lot of concentration. Nobody can tell me why that is either...I just try over and over again to get better. You should do that too! Wish you all the best!!

    Having someone assist moving your body through the proper range of motion while you try to contract the muscles will help the most.

    How many reps are you talking per muscle group? does it matter if its small or big muscle?

    Another thing is when i go to sit on the toilet to and try to urinate. Thats when my hamstring muscles start to have jolty movement.

    Big muscle groups are easier to focus on. Go until it fatigues and becomes weaker or no longer fires. High reps are ideal for neuromuscular reeducation.
