Being athletic comes at a cost. Of course, the benefits of an athletic lifestyle far outweigh the risks; the risks are real yet can be minimized and possibly eliminated. Athletes push their bodies fast, hard and continually for long periods. Some extreme athletes push even harder constantly testing limitations.
Creating a prevention plan for yourself is a crucial step in limiting the chances of injury to your body. Here are some key steps you will want to take as part of your injury prevention program.
Above all, have fun. Adhere to a program that protects your body but be sure not to be too significant about it. The main goal should be to have fun and to do it in a way that enables you to spend a lot more time enjoying and a lot less time hurting.
If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.
When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.
One thing I've learned is that injuries can be great teachers. There are so many lessons to be learned from the injuries we experience. They force us to slow down and evaluate our bodies on a deeper level. Like many, I'm guilty of sometimes taking my healthy days for granted. When we pick up an injury, we're suddenly motivated to learn everything we can about that specific injury. We're also dedicated to the necessary rehab it will take to overcome the injury and strengthen our weak areas.
As with many injuries, I've learned there are no "quick fixes" for my stubborn Achilles. Over the years, I've also learned there are no "get fit quickly" schemes.
