Adaptive Fitness Video with Spinal Cord Injury client

Hey Team,

Wanted to share a video of a training session that has been focusing on High volume leg training.

We have been working on leg strength and balance for walking, but I have recently been pushing this client with increased volume of specific exercises.

My goal is to stimulate his nervous system by stressing him physically:  his leg strength, breathing, cardio endurance as well as muscular endurance and Mentally: forcing him to work outside his comfort zone

Rest breaks are taken as needed, but no longer than 60 seconds.

This client has made tremendous gains, and continues to do so.

Check out the video here:

Let me know what you think.
