Today we have a special guest who has volunteered his time to help us demonstrate how to best work with an athlete with a below-the-knee-prosthetic. It’s not every day that an adaptive athlete walks into your gym or box, but here in San Diego there are quite a number of these men and women. In this video, our USMC friend Brian Riley helps Dr. Theresa Larson and Coach Kim Bono demonstrate to adaptive athletes, Coaches and leaders in the fitness community how to effectively perform squat exercises with adaptive athletes with below-the-knee prosthetics.
