4 Ways to avoid Workout Injuries

If you’re very eager to get in shape or take your fitness to the next level, the possibility is that you can wind up with an injury. You may wonder why? Here are five steps to take to avoid getting injured during a workout.

#1: Know Your Body:

know your body

This is the first way to avoid injury. For instance, if you know you have a shoulder-related injury, you won’t want to be working the bench press or even doing bicep curls.

This goes for all other parts of the body as well. The idea is just this, if you know a particular part of your body isn’t ready for a workout, don’t stress it.

#2: Consult a Pro:

This is an important way to avoid injury. Some Professionals suggest having a few routines with a professional before starting anything on your own. This will help ensure your body is in proper alignment when you work out which will help prevent injury.

Moreover, it’ll also provide you with the right rhythm for your body type. This includes weight you could lift, rest periods, the progression of exercises, etc.

#3: Warm up and take it slow:

This may be the exact opposite of what you thought the training was about but it’s highly important in a particular scenario.  Whatever workout you intend on doing, you’re less likely to get injured if you simply just warm up and slowly build up your pace.

Workout guru, Plancher says “the warm-up helps the muscles handle stress so they are less likely to be injured”. This is why beginners are advised to do a lot of warm up and fewer reps with lighter weights.

#4: Don’t overdo it:

over do it

It is easy to get carried away when working out thinking its the heavier weight you lift and the longer time you spend in the gym that will make you ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’ overnight.

Although doing a particular workout repeatedly will help you perfect it and see more gains, it can also set you up for an injury. Training guru ‘Schroeder’ says doing this leads to “overuse and repetitive use injuries, such as shin splints, tendinitis, and never-ending muscle soreness”

The best way to train is to vary your workouts, for instance, running on a treadmill and lifting weights alternately. It’s also important to give muscles adequate rest between workouts.
