This is part 1 of a series of blogs I will be doing on strength and conditioning for leg amputees.
In this first blog, I will give a little background on myself, I have a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia of the left leg. Having been born with a disability, I have had to adapt to things along the way. Learning and implementing ways I could do things, the other able-bodied children took for granted.
Later on, in my life from about my mid to late teens to about my late 20’s, I spent just over a decade in disabled performance sport, in sports such as swimming, rowing and volleyball. Learning the different types of training to compete in these so different spheres. Not only do I have a background as a disabled person and Paralympics sport, but also a degree in sports science from Swansea University.
But more recently I have become a personal trainer (2015), finally getting to combine my knowledge from my life to date, I can adapt a training programme to your needs.
