Instant Training Improvement Tips: avoiding common training injuries
The optimal road of athletic development is paved with a proper training, supplement and diet regime, the overseeing guidance of a veteran coach, absolute compliance and a sandpaper grit tenacity to push through the many trials. Along said path the athlete will encounter many obstacles with the issue of injuries being a formidable foe that has cut short countless efforts.
Injuries range from the unavoidable of contact or stress within sport to those that occur in training. Of the latter it is highly questionable that they are not avoidable and very typically occur due to neglect or simply arrogance. Though the natural confidence of an athlete can put them in situations where they “bite off more than they can chew”, for the most part injuries occur from very avoidable situations.
Likely the greatest cause of training day injuries stem from an area few consider as many athletes are “un-coachable” and circumvent plans despite their coach having years of experience. Whether it is failure to perform dynamic range of motion with serious effort, maintaining a proper diet or getting sufficient sleep, each represents the failure to follow coaching directive.
Poor training day preparation which varies from diet, supplementation to failing to perform a proper dynamic warm-up is a tremendous problem and often lay at the root of injuries. Failing to be prepared to exercise at your optimal level demonstrates the individual’s lack of true commitment. Talk is cheap and if you wish to perform at your best you must be serious in every corner of your training.
Poor training technique and rushing to use a heavier weight than required is a constant source of injuries. Learn to perform movements correct and check the ego at the door.
The route around this problem is moderately easy to navigate as it starts with a complete dedication to all aspects of athletic development, which includes not simply the rigours of exercise but restorative measures (see “Modern Monday”), diet and supplementation. A proper diet and supplementation that includes Modern and Super Cissus will do wonders at reducing the chance of injury along with the daily addition of RED2, Hurdle mobility drills, DMC™ and range of motion.
