Injuries and Imbalances

If you’ve been dealing with a workout injury or imbalance I have three suggestions. First, I want to say that if you are having severe pain that you should seek medical attention. If you are simply aware that a workout is causing unnecessary stress on some joints or tendons, then this is a post worth reading.

Here are three things you should do to prevent injuries:

  1. Stretch – stretching is good because during heavy lifts your body will become tense and it is not great to put all of that stress on your body without doing some stretches after and during the workout. A good stretch can alleviate pain in places such as the rotator cuff.
  2. Eat well – this may seem odd but take certain vitamins and oils for example: fish oil has been stated to alleviate joint pain.
  3. Do a warm-up – Warming up on the treadmill for five to ten minutes before a workout is good routine and may keep you from pulling things or having cramps.

If you enjoyed the information in this blog I am happy. I hope to keep you very informed, and now every Sunday I’ll begin to share entertaining or educational videos at the end of my posts. 

This Sunday I am choosing a funny video made by BroScienceLife. I’m leaving the link below and you can click on it to watch Dom Mazzetti explain How to Fix Injuries and Imbalances.

Hodge Twins Explain Why You May Not Be Getting Gains

That’s a link to a video I just watched by TheHodgeTwins on YouTube on their fitness account. Those guys are really smart dudes that give the same kind of advice I’d give. That’s just practical advice.

It’s good to keep things basic too. I find that it’s better to keep it simple than to take in a lot of information, that may or may not be bro science, and suffer from paralysis by analysis.

So if you want progress, read my blog or watch their videos. Better yet, read my blog and watch their videos. You’ll get some practical, easy to follow, simplistic advice that you can very easily add into your life. With those simple changes, at some point you’ll be able to cross the threshold from beginner and finally learn more complicated workout theory whilst remembering the classic K.I.S.S formula(Keep It Simple Stupid). Just kidding, you aren’t stupid.
