Athletic Injuries Prevention and Treatment of Fitness Injuries

Want to know the professional body builders secret to injury prevention? You might be surprised to know that it's yoga!

Pro body builders can't afford to be slowed down by injuries, so they use yoga to improve their flexibility, their musculoskeletal system and their balance.

To find out how you too can prevent injuries, and maximize your workouts by using yoga, go here:


Anyone who has ever participated in athletic activities has experienced an injury.

Particularly in high impact sports like weight lifting, wrestling, baseball, football, basketball and the like, muscle pulls and tears, tendonitis, hyper-extended joints and bruises are common.

Fitness training is an athletic activity. As such it is common to overhear complaints at the club about shoulder problems, muscle tears, knee problems and lower back injuries.

Avoidance is the first line of defense. This is hard because our ego is constantly pushing us to surpass any previous weight totals, or to get that extra rep.

Treatment is the second line of defense. Again, our ego gets in the way and we often try to "work our way through" injuries, keeping up our training and gritting our teeth in the face of pain and discomfort.

There are some basic rules on the avoidance side of the equation.

A two-wheeler enthusiast once said, "If you ride a motorcycle long enough, you are going to go down!" The same can be said of athletic injuries. If you train for enough years, you will have an injury.

More than likely you will have a number of them.

Plan on it happening to you, because it will. Stock your gym bag with elastic bandages, wrist and elbow wraps, a lifting belt and lifting wrist-straps. Keep a tube or jar of "warming" liniment handy, as well as an ice-pack.

As the Boy Scouts say, 'Be Prepared'
