Reply To: Training with a knee injury and warm water?
The pool temp is an easy one…..I agree with Rob, too warm to be productive & could possibly be dangerous. The ocean where I live is 84. We were in it last weekend & it wasn’t even refreshing. I couldn’t imagine trying to perform 2-4 USRPT sets in it.
As far as the knee, when I’m not trying to make kids go faster, I’m a Chiropractor (15yrs). Like any patient on the phone or email, there’s a lot of info I don’t about you & your knee (age, new injury, mechanism of injury, mri/xray?, etc, etc) so I would err on the side of caution & wait til it heals.
I guess you could do a little stroke work or some pulls to stay in the pool but we dumped 99% of that when we began USRPT.
