Muscular Dystrophy??

Any CF Trainers, owners or clients have experience with training someone or are someone with muscular dystrophy? I have a client who has a new form of it and I'm looking for any info or insights as to how to approach her CF training. Thanks in advance .

Re: Muscular Dystrophy??

I'd ask her doc and maybe a PT.

It depends what kind of muscular dystrophy because some are more limiting than others, and some have exercise contraindications
