CLINICAL SPLASH Sponsored by ALTA Physical Therapy & Pilates
Welcome to my Clinical Splash, where I will share insights from my experience working with patients in clinic, observing injured swimmers in the water, and from my own injuries, as it relates to swimming. As our bodies change with age and injury, our fitness and performance in the pool is ever evolving. Let’s start a conversation and feel and swim the best we can…..
BAM Workouts During COVID - We are in the days of COVID that has spiked around the nation and Boulder - We all need to keep one another safe and healthy - Swimming protocol will be much different for BAM workouts to keep people safe - Please be at workouts 10 minutes before the start of the session - Every workout has taken time to orchestrate based on who has signed up, their abilities, where to swim, where to put gear, how can the coaches on deck can best give good workouts while you are all spread out and while tending to safety - During these times, it takes extra awareness and understanding for the group, the coach and not just the individual - We understand that we cannot accommadate all the BAM swimmers yet...
