Working Through a Sports-Related Iinjury

June 06, 2012

A sports-related injury can be frustrating, depriving you of the enjoyment of a favorite activity and adding concerns about maintaining fitness while you recuperate. The best advice is ... put on your bathing suit! Deep water running can allow you to continue working out despite conditions like tendonitis and fractures or simple sprains and strains! Here's how it works: Put a flotation device around your waist and find a pool deep enough so that your feet don't touch bottom. Use a natural running motion and slice your hands through the water. The most effective workouts are achieved with either extended workouts of 30 minutes or more or short sprints with one minute rests in between. The next time someone says you can't get in a good workout when injured.. tell them they're all wet!
