Strength Training

  • Strength Training for Able Bodies and Amputees Alike

    Being an endurance athlete encompasses a lot of things. One that usually doesn't get touched is building a base with strength training. As an amputee, I have many muscle imbalances that restrict my performance. As a result, I spend a lot of time doing unilateral training to make sure no body part doesn't gets left behind. Here is a look at one of my basic training workouts.

    It is very important to continue strength training during your season to help decrease your chance of injury. During the season I lighten up on the weights I lift and use more body weight exercises...in case you were wondering. Hope you enjoy it!
    Until next time,
