Maria was looking for a sport to replace her daily bike ride. The fact that she can´t bear weight on her leg brought us into the pool at the Rec Center in Truckee. With her motivation and my experience, we can train for 40 min.
As our first training day after the accident, we finished our workout with push-ups. Maria can´t bear weight on her left leg, so she has to balance entirely on one leg, which becomes quite exhausting.
We’re happy to be able to start this training. Even though we can´t train the broken leg, it will benefit from the other exercises. Meanwhile, we’ll work on the mobility of the broken leg with a resistant band.

After the one leg squat, we moved on to the BUTTERFLY REVERSE OVERHEAD. That’s a great exercise to train your upper back and shoulder strength. Moreover, you will improve your mobility in your shoulders.
