Question: What cardio can I do whilst I have injured my leg?
Well, the best thing you can do it get yourself down the pool (or ocean if you’re really lucky)!
You will need a special bit of kit that gives your legs a rest called a pull buoy. This amazing piece of floaty goodness will allow your core and upper body to do all the work, letting your legs relax and recover.
The best news is that a company called Finis now make a pull buoy that will cover all types of leg injuries, no more buying one set of ankle floats and one thigh pull buoy.
Wear it around your ankles if you have injured your adductors, iliotibial band, glutes, hamstrings
Place it in between your thighs if you have an injured ankle, Achilles or patella.
