I am looking for ideas of how to design a strength program for a volleyball athlete with scoliosis. How much free weights should be used in comparison with machines? What exercises should not be used? What exercises work well? I appreciate the help in understanding how to help my athlete. Thank you.
I have scoliosis. My spine is both twisted and curved. I do not baby myself at all. I work on unilateral movements and push for core strength so that I can reduce the chance of having low back pain due to the imbalances. If you baby someone that doesn’t need it, you are doing their body a disservice.
