Carrie Underwood Reveals Neck Injury That Forced Her To Stop Daily Workouts
Carrie Underwood is slowly returning to her daily workouts after a recent injury forced her to lay low for several days. The country star revealed the injury to her fans in a post shared on her fit52 fitness app shared on Friday (January 29).
“Been out a few days w/ a neck injury,” she wrote in a post that has since been re-shared by a fan page. “Slowly stepping back in w/ swaps & modifications. Focusing.” The note was shared alongside a photo of Underwood smiling as she gets back into her routine at the gym.
This isn’t the first time an injury has forced Underwood to sideline her workout routine. In November of 2017, she had to make some major adjustments after she fell on stone steps outside of her house in Tennessee. The fall broke her wrist and also caused her to get over 40 stitches on her face.
“It definitely messes with your mind, you know? But I knew that if I did nothing, that would make me feel even worse,” she told Shape in 2018. “So I did a lot of lower-body workouts. I was like ‘Well, I can still do squats, lunges, I can kind of hold a weight in this hand, and I’ll just figure it out.’ But it’s so weird how much everything is connected. For example, with running, it threw everything off balance. I would jog as much as I could, but couldn’t do things like sprints.”
“If you’re dealing with an injury, I say, whatever you do, just don’t stop,” she continued. “Even if it’s just going for a walk.”
Underwood launched her fit52 app in March 2020, just one day before the release of her book, Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit 52 Life. The app offers a variety of workouts for anyone, from beginners to advanced, who run a busy life. The simple workout routines, created with Underwood’s longtime personal trainer, Eve Overland, can be done anytime, anywhere in as little as 30 minutes.
“Fitness is a true passion for me,” Underwood previously said. “The fit52 app incorporates what I’ve been doing myself for years, and we’ve made it easy and totally accessible for anyone that wants help to work in working out. We worked really hard to create a high-quality, user-friendly app that is designed for busy people and their busy lives. fit52 meets you wherever you are on your health journey, and I’m so proud of it.”
