❤️🩹4 Days post-op! There’s a lot about my days that’s different, but there’s also a lot about my days that’s the same. I am working on being thankful for what my body can still do as I heal and get back to my normal. And despite my limitations, my Ashlete Toni was able to still have a successful day of training and make progress on her outside leg hangs.
Her training for #PDoutsideleghang started off the pole with corrective exercise drills to inhibit tension in her overactive quads and drills to strengthen her hamstrings to prepare her for outside leg hangs. We paired that with Jasmines, climbing drills and then progressed to aerial jasmines. We did this until she could do it with ease and then moved her onto descending into her outside leg hangs.
⚠️ NOTICE NO INVERTS WERE REQUIRED. Why? 👇🏽
Because Where there’s a creative and knowledgeable coach 🙋🏾♀️there’s a way!
🙅🏾♀️I’m NOT advocating training with injuries or putting yourself or others at risk. I am also NOT recommending that coaches coach while injured
🙋🏾♀️What I am a supporter of is working around and with limitations, and having more inclusive teaching practices that support ALL BODIES while focusing on Safety, technique and progressive training.
A few crucial factors:
1️⃣ I understand my body, abilities and limitations.
2️⃣ I understand how to safely distribute my weight around and without using my injured leg.
3️⃣ My Ashletes and I have constant open communication as we train.
4️⃣ Most importantly, my Ashletes trust me.
My creative teaching isn’t just about how I teach my students to move and overcome limitations, its also about how I move and overcome my limitations.
