Instant Training Improvement Tips: returning from injury
The problem of injuries during exercise is one area that every serious athlete, strength-athlete or exercise enthusiast must consider. While rate of incident can be greatly reduced for the majority of concerns, that assumes trainer, coach or individual is educated on situations and diligent in their efforts. Though this seems to be an “open and shut case” whereby the great risks are eliminated, the general marketplace is evidence that each point noted in yesterday’s article is alive and well. At every turn individuals are being injured when exercising from both neglect, carelessness and simply, poor training advice. For this reason alone, many will need to spend time rehabilitating from injuries that were avoidable, making the road to recovery an important step in attaining your goals.
While I want to emphasize the best course of action is prevention, once injuries are properly dealt with medical practitioners and the go-ahead to return to exercise is given these approaches must be included:
- Learn to perform movements correctly from a well respected training professional, whether in person or via video
- Stress posture and movement generation in your daily training. RED2 and the “STS” model from the Renegade FIX™ can be implemented in any environment and require only modest equipment additions.
- Take recovery focused training seriously which includes the use of specific workouts (Recovery Training Day), proper dietary and sleep habits, key supplementation including on, Modern, Super Cissus, PowerFull and Prime as well the use of contrast showers, saunas, ice and Epsom salt baths and massage therapy.
- Utilize training regimes developed by competent professionals and not merely a collection of exercises thrown together without rhyme or reason. Credible complex regimes (i.e. Complex Training) understand proper sequential patterning, the role of particular exercises and not merely thrown together with catchy names or rep counts
