EXERCISES DURING THIRD TRIMESTER

The best running alternatives are those that are most similar to running itself. Activities such as swimming and rowing are not great alternatives to running because, while they stimulate the cardiovascular system, they are arm-dominant versus leg-dominant movements. So what are the best activities for “training through” running injuries? The Alter-G antigravity treadmill is, in my opinion, the single most important running-related invention in history. It is a normal treadmill with a tentlike enclosure attached to it. The user steps through a hole at the top of the enclosure and zips herself in around the waist, creating an airtight seal. The chamber is then pressurized, and this high-pressure zone effectively reduces the force of gravity within it. The amount of pressure is adjustable, enabling the user to run at anywhere between 20 percent and 100 percent of her actual body weight. I have had every type of running overuse injury that exists, and I have used the Alter-G treadmill several times. Based on this experience, I am able to say that runners can train through any injury pain free and without setting back the healing processon this machine. What’s more, it is not an alternative to running; it is running. Therefore, it is superior to every form of cross-training in terms of building and maintaining running fitness. Case in point: Dathan Ritzenhein trained exclusively on an Alter-G for several weeks while nursing an IT band injury. (This was after he trained through a foot issue on the Alter-G.) He was ready to return to regular outdoor running only two weeks before the 2008 USA Cross-Country Championships. Nevertheless, he won the race easily. That simply would not have been possible had he been forced to resort to pool running or bicycling. The downside of the Alter-G antigravity treadmill is that the flagship model costs $75,000. There is also a scaled-down version that is marginally more affordable at $25,000. Only a handful of units are accessible for injured runners to use in high-end physical therapy facilities. It will be a while before antigravity treadmill running is a realistic option for most runners.Exercise in the Third Trimester | Hungry For Motherhood Bestcelebritystyle
