Hey all. I'm writing to ask for conditioning exercises/workout schemes that can be done with a pulled hamstring.
I've been doing the Waterbury Summer Project for the last 6weeks or so and seeing some AMAZING results. Unfortunately, about 60 hours ago, I pulled my hamstring. I "felt" a loud pop and a shot of pain. My hamstring now throbs a bit and I get shots of pain when I stretch it or go up stairs. I had some spasming yesterday, but that seems to be over. Honestly, I don't think it's very bad and I've even been able to go up stairs a little today w/o pain.
Anyway, I want to keep up my "leaning" momentum if at all possible. I was thinking of trying to stick with the "Waterbury" style of lifting 3 times a week (heavy/med/light) with conditioning exercises at the end of the workouts and thrown in on 3 of the "off" days... and this is where I'm looking for advice:
Can anyone suggest some form of "upper body" conditioning drills?
tabata squats, HIIT sprints, jumping jacks, etc are all out. Maybe tabata pushups? Maybe one-legged conditioning drills? I'm hoping my healing continues and I can finish of the WSP after a few weeks of healing and taking it easy...but I'll play the by ear and see how the leg feels.
Any and all advice appreciated.
