So what does that mean? Abs and upper body!!! Yes I have to be super careful with my knee, but I can tailor my workouts to focus on other parts of my body whilst isolating my leg and leaving it out of the action. This has given me a super great opportunity to focus on some really killer ab routines, that are all matt and none impacting on my lower half. I can also focus on absolutely killing it with my arms and back.
Staying positive is so important because your mental focus and happiness can deteriorate when you're injured. Making the best of a bad situation can play to your advantage if you get creative. Instead of thinking of what you can't do, try and focus on what you can do and how to create goals. I never really dedicate a full workout to my abs, I tag them onto legs/glutes/upper body workouts. Or fit them into a full body workout. I also am super excited for the new GymShark stock to come in next week, and I'll be treating myself to a new workout piece to motivate me even more. Treating yourself to combat the blues and putting all the negative energy into focusing on what you are still so capable of doing will help get you out of any down period and injury you're having.
If you've had any injuries recently or just love the gym and working out in general and want to focus your attention of a different workout let me know! We can go on our new routine journeys together.
