Healing with Intensity

Blog Article ImageLately I’ve had an old shoulder injury nagging me. It has happened to me in the past, and having rest from certain exercises always heals it. Since I won’t be competing until August, I thought now would be the best time to heal my shoulders..

My pushing movements have been eliminated for now, but that doesn’t mean there is any less training! For my upper body, I’ve been doing pulling movements with a close grip or underhand grip to limit the shoulder involvement. I have incorporated hiking for some cardio on a nice steep trail up the mountain. It’s a great cardio session and very refreshing to be outside in the beautiful California weather. The gorgeous view is an added bonus to the fresh air.

I am also doing more gymnast training that I did as a teenager. It is not only intense physical training, but it mentally makes me feel young and extremely energetic! I will do sprints and plyometrics as one of my leg workouts during the week in addition to a day with weights. I complete about every type of jump for thorough training and zero boredom. My favorite plyometric exercises are bounders, traveling squat jumps, and alternating leg- tuck/pike jump. This type of training has my lower half burning along with my heart pumping.

No matter what type of training is on the agenda, I am always supplementing with HMB to aid in my recovery and prepare my body for a more intense session next time!
