Lindsay Arnold Talks About Working With Jordan Fisher's Past Injuries on DWTS (Exclusive)

Who else remembers that Jordan Fisher was once in training to be an Olympic gymnast? We definitely do!

Because of that, the Dancing With The Stars celeb has some past injuries that pro partner Lindsay Arnold has to work around.

“Jordan has a lot of things going on as far as past injuries,” Lindsay told JJJ earlier this week. “His right shoulder had always had problems.”

She continues, “It is an issue when it comes to partnering because you’re using your arms and it’s the guy’s job to lead the girl, so I’m avoiding anything that has to do with weight bearing with the right arm.”

“That’s actually hard to do and I’m always thinking about it,” Lindsay confesses, as she’s always thinking about the next dance with her partner.

“When I’m choreographing, I’m always considering that and thinking about a turn and ‘oh, we can’t do that because of his shoulder’, and it’s something that hurts him,” she says. “It’s a thing we do work around because that’s a big thing for this competition.”

Lindsay adds, “If your body can’t get through it, there’s not any other option. You have to have a healthy body and be able to do the things that you need to do.”

Jordan‘s past injuries, and his perfectionist ways are the biggest challenges for Team Fish Upon a Star right now.

“He wants to be good at every single thing that he does,” Lindsay tells us. “I think that is for sure why he’s so successful in his career, but it’s also a big thing to kind of overcome; because being perfect all the time is impossible.”

“When you put that pressure on yourself, it takes its toll. Beyond that, he’s doing well in the competition and those questions about how it is easy for him because he’s a natural performer. But it’s not easy and he’s working extremely hard every week. That’s the reason he’s doing so well, is because he pushes himself.”
