So we’ve gone pretty far in depth recently about technique and how it may influence your risk of getting injured. What else is really important when it comes to injury prevention? Moderating training volume is incredibly important. As human beings our body’s can only handle so much volume of a given movement before we start to break down wetransfer photos iphone.
What’s cool about being a human being is that we’re adaptable and can build our body’s ability to handle additional training stress. We’ll refer to this as our “capacity”. Having a higher capacity is actually beneficial from an injury prevention standpoint. This simply means that the more an athlete is prepared for a given activity, the less likely they are to get hurt in that activity kostenlose games zumen.

I’ve written about this a bit in the past and if you want a more in depth explanation with some research, click HERE 360 grad online herunterladen.
So the goal becomes a nice slow and progressive increase in training volumes to allow our bodies to fully adapt without succumbing to injury resident evil 2 remake downloaden.

We can also build some additional capacity by adding in accessory work for muscle groups that are being stressed greatly in training:
Lastly, we’ll want to make sure we avoid training spikes. I made a quick video below to show some of the common mistakes I see that end up in jury. Check it out:
If you enjoyed this short clip then I wanted to let you know it’s part of a much longer webinar series included with subscription into my Fitness Pain Free Insiders Online Mentoring Program:
I created this series because coaches and personal trainers everywhere are working with athletes in pain every day of the week. This series will tell you exactly what to do (and what not to do) with these athletes so they can continue working towards their goals and prevent injuries in the long haul.
Gotta spike your training,
