Good luck on your upcoming op, I’ve had both hips replaced in the past 2 and 1/2 years, both posterior ops. I would say by using a cross trainer before your op is the best way for a quicker recovery, strengthening glutes and ligaments gives a head start for post op. 18 months after my last op I can do 7 minute mile and 7.30 miles over 5k. My weekly mileage is only around 8 per week as I’m still taking it relatively easy for the next 6 months. As others have posted, listen to your new hip and rest when it tells you, but just walking immediately post op is the best exercise you can do, good luck.
