Making modifications instead of excuses... often we hear people say “I need to take some time off due to ___ injury.” Now, in some cases this can not be avoided. However, in many cases we can work around it. Movements can be modified or changed depending on the injury and what the athlete can or can’t do due to the injury.
Here, @mary_welte, is doing a revised workout to what the rest of the class is doing. The rest of the class is doing 4 Walkouts + Negative Pushups and then Crab Walks. @mary_welte is having surgery for her carpal tunnel, so she can’t do any movements with her hand flat to the floor. So we made a modification which allows her to continue to work, and still hit the same exact muscles that the rest of the class hit.
These modifications for this injury, or any other injury, can be made to any athlete. You, the athlete, just need to make the trainer aware of your injury. It’s very important to be vocal with your trainer and let him/her know what’s going on with your body. Training should not cause you physical pain. Not the pain you feel in your muscles after a hard workout, but the pain that causes your body to truly hurt, and it not be natural. If something does hurt you, speak up. If you have a good trainer they will make the modifications you need.
BTW, this is my Mom. I’m very proud of all of her hard work. She’s truly amazing!!! I love you momma
