People with injuries love to ask me questions like, "How can I train around the injury?" or, "What exercise can I do to replace the exercise causing me pain?.
Those are the wrong questions.
That's like saying, "My car only has 3 tires, how can I still drive it on the highway?"
The answer, in both cases, is obvious.
Get the problem FIXED.
And when you do get back to training, remember this:
Every exercise, set, and rep in your program must have a purpose. And "killing time" in the hour with a trainer is a NOT a purpose.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
All the good you are doing & value you are adding might feel like it's going unnoticed. But it's not. Keep going. The world needs you
"Success comes from taking the initiative and following up
persisting. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?" Anthony Robbins
Who lives a life that makes the greatest impact? The answer is those that live on their own terms, adding value in ways they believe are right. Those that are renegades. Those that are often at first mocked and scorned, but that stay true to their beliefs through the tough times. If you are doing what you believe is right, keep going no matter what. The world will catch up with you in time.
This week's top article: Action beats anxiety
You must truly believe in yourself. You must end the "I'll give this a try" mindset, and switch to an, "I'm going to succeed" belief. Change your mindset, change your life for the better. Now is the time, you can do it.
Surround yourself with good, positive people
and some that are more successful than you, as you define it. These people will bring out the best in you
helping you "play up a level". And always help others, the more they benefit, the more you will benefit in return. The world needs all the love and help it can get right now.
