Training through injury | MaeveMadden

Training through injury

  • So...after taking a looooooong hiatus I decided to take a deep breath and do a workout for the first time in...well...a few months. Decided I'd go with sexy shoulders cos it's one of my favorites to ease in and loved it. Fast forward 12 hours and my neck / back went into spasm from getting out of bed. 

    With a back injury movement is key but I'm wondering if I should only limit it to walking or could I attempt something like barre or any lower body class?

  • @Caitriona Lyons oh no Caitriona, sorry to hear that, I had a similar thing happen a few months back towards the end of the last challenge, went too heavy with my weights and my neck/shoulder was sore for a good few days after. Im not one to give advice or tell you what you should or shouldn't do, I suppose you know your body best. However, I did rest my upper body during that time and only done lower body where I could without hurting myself further. Barre involves a lot of pulsing and some floor work doing hip thrusts but I suppose you could leave out some moves that involve straining your neck. 

    Whatever you do, just take it easy anyways and hopefully your neck will be back to normal soon xx

  • @Caitriona Lyons Aw Caitriona queen I can't imagine how frustrating that is for you. I love the Barre classes for when my recurring shoulder injury is hurting but like @Ashley Jordan said you know your body best and if you're really unsure about what you can and can't do with your injury I'd definitely reccomend talking to your physio or GP and they'll be able to guide you.

    I hope you start feeling better soon queen, sending lots of love x

  • Oh dear I have a back injury too so I have to be very careful as last time it put me out of training for 2 years.  I would so low impact training yoga or Pilates or body weight exercise only if your up for it.  I have had to learn the hard way an listen to what my body tells me. Speedy recovery x
