A massive shout out to strength and conditioning client Carol Woodward - who produced a stunning time to take silver in the World Indoor Rowing Champs in the 60-64 Lightweight Female Category.
The key to Carol’s success is simple - hard work, consistency and a desire to learn. Priority this year has been to make Carol’s body more durable so her body can cope with the demands of training on the erg and enable her to train consistently - for life.
We have focused on enhancing movement, activating muscles to improve stability, addressing imbalances and improving posture for injury prevention. Underpinning everything education - helping Carol understand how her body moves. Carol is so in tune with her body now she can identify and correct movement dysfunctions which is going to help her prevent injury in the future, so she can carry on doing what she loves for longer and in a better and more efficient way.
Progress has not been linear and there have been obstacles along the way - but Carol has trusted the process, and kept going proving it is never too late to get stronger and improve. I love working with this inspirational lady, and can’t wait to start the next phase of Carol’s training, progressing to heavier weights now Carol is able to load the body effectively. There is lots more to come - age is just a number!
