Fat Loss Conditioning
Conditioning exercises for the injured person
Keeping on top of your fitness while you are out with an injury can be a difficult task. Because, as a result of your low back, hip, or knee issue, you are now limited in what you can do on the pitch, on the track, or just in everyday life. Therefore, you will need to choose your exercises carefully so as not to aggravate this existing injury.
As we have discussed in previous posts, altering your nutrition is also extremely important during this time to avoid putting on excess body fat.
Here in SPI, we can advise you on what exercises are SAFE for you to perform at home or in the gym in order to maintain that good level of fitness, and will also give you some pointers to help you to adjust your nutritional intake appropriately.
While being injured can be frustrating, it doesn’t have to mean you stop training! There are always ways to work around any injury, without causing further damage. Check out some of the exercises I like to use with some of my injured clients here and give them a go.
