What is the difference between training through an injury and training around an injury? Training through an injury is pushing through pain, not listening to a message the body is trying to communicate; like continuing muscle up practice with a sore shoulder or doing doubleunders in a WOD even though you have plantar facsiitis. Training around those issues means substituting movements that do not aggravate or stress the situation so that fitness levels can be maintained (or even increased) while healing takes place in the problem area. Do you have a sprained ankle, a partially torn PCL, chronic inflammatory elbow pain, ACL reconstruction or did you have Achilles tendon surgery last week? If so- we can find ways that you can train around those problems. Don’t simply stay home (and pout 🙂 and wait until you get better to resume your training.
