Hi My Friend,
I know what you are thinking: “But Caroline… how am I supposed to exercise without my feet?!” “What do I do if I can’t run? Or jump?”
Don’t worry! I’ve got a lot of options for you. All you need is to be open to think outside the box. Are you ready to explore new types of movement? Look at this injury as an opportunity for fun exercise adventures! Get ready to try new things and see what your body is capable of.
Done safely, exercise is an important way to accelerate healing. The healing process requires good blood circulation and a satisfactory flow of nutrient replenishing blood to the injury area. However, your exercise choices need to be SAFE, SMART, and not put ANY stress on your injury… which means you are going to have to get creative.
In this strength session I want to teach you essential bodyweight strength exercises that will help you build a foundation of fitness and stay strong no matter where you are in the recovery process. Reminder: just because these bodyweight exercises don’t involve weights or impact, doesn’t mean they are easy! Mastering the right form takes focus and skill. Pay close attention to how you move through each exercise and go for quality over quantity. Do less reps or sets if needed to focus on your form. All of these exercises can be done anywhere, anytime for more energy, strength, and fitness. You can choose to move through the entire workout at once or mix and match these moves into your weekly fitness schedule to maintain muscle mass. All you’ll need to complete these exercises is your body and a mat! Ready to get sweaty? Grab your water bottle and let’s go.
You must be cleared by your doctor or physical therapist before starting this or any exercise routine. The following is not to replace the care of a doctor or medical professional. ALWAYS check with your doctor first and remember: when you are healing from an injury, HEALING needs to be your #1 priority. Take however much time you need to heal properly so you can come back to full health. Always listen to your body and if anything puts your injury healing in jeopardy or hurts STOP. We don’t have time for you to get another injury! Honor what you need to do for healing and move mindfully. Pace yourself. Your goal should be to come back stronger and better. Creative workouts can support you in keeping your muscles moving and your mind positive while you recover. I suggest previewing this workout first. You may need to eliminate specific moves until later in the recovery process. That is OK. This is NOT a race to the finish. This is about YOU staying in active and maintaining health while you heal. Don’t rush. Listen to your body, have fun, and always remember “smiling is very advanced” 😉
