Single Leg Injury Plan

This four-week cycle is designed specifically for those who are dealing with an injured leg. The program works to improve anaerobic and aerobic conditioning as well as improve upper body strength. Most importantly, it will train lower body strength focusing on the un-injured leg. Single limb training has a strong carryover to maintaining strength in both limbs - simply put, training your un-injured leg will help keep your injured leg strong while it is healing.

This is an intense program and should only be completed after you’ve cleared by your physical therapist/doctor to do so, especially if you’ve recently had surgery. 

You’ll need access to a rower or air dyne bike. You can isolate the injured leg on a rower by placing it on the ground or placing it to the side. Only  use the upper body handles on the air dyne unless you can comfortably put pressure on the injured leg for the pedals. 

The program uses a rep-based strength progression through out the four weeks, and the work capacity efforts focus on slightly longer (and slightly less intense) efforts to ensure you don’t hurt yourself or overtax your system, which is working hard to heal you. As always, we will train the trunk (core and low-back) with modified exercises to ensure load isn’t put on the injured limb. You may need to play around with different positions to find what is most comfortable and efficient. 

If you’ve got longer than 4-weeks to heal up, simply repeat the cycle.
