WEEKLY WORKOUT: Training With Injuries
Injured? That doesn't necessarily mean you have to abandon your workout. “You want to check with your doctor," says personal trainer, Angie Gallagher. "Sometimes they’ll give you recommendations as to what you should be doing or not doing." Angie helped me find a few ways to workout while recovering from a serious ankle sprain last fall. My doctor and physical therapist recommended swimming and the stationary bike. Angie took the workout up a notch, by putting me on a stationary bike equipped with arms. The arms increase the aerobic output by about 12-percent.
