Better Work Out

1.Stop and Go If you play a sport that requires a full sprint, remember that a full sprint strains the muscles of the lower body. To combat this, do stop-and-go exercises.

For example, run 30 metres at about 80 percent of your effort, slow to a jog for five to 10 metres, then run again for another 30 metres. Repeat this process five times.

2.On bended knee Almost 3 out of four ACL injuries occur when players are landing or turning. If your knees are bent instead of straight,

the risk of injury is greatly reduced according to a report in the JAAOS (Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons).

3.Cool down Heatstroke is not something that can be easily cured like a headache. To avoid it, stay cool and hydrated.

Be sure the combined temp and humidity is less than 160. This is according to Dr. Dave Janda of the IPSM.

4.Get the proper equipment Badly fitting gears or ill sized equipment can be a cause of  training injuries. The extra money spent on proper equipment goes a long way.

5.Do it the right way Bad technique is just as bad as, well, bad equipment. Seek advice from pros and trainers, this advice is invaluable to your exercises or training.

8.Loosen the shoulders. Even a slightly injured rotator cuff can shut down the function of a shoulder. You might want to include stretching to protect your rotator cuffs.

9.take An early dip Schedule your swimming sessions early. The fewer people in the pool means less of everything in the pool.

10. Protect yourself Wearing custom-fitted mouth guards reduces the risk of  injuries by as much as 82 percent, according to a study at UNC at Chapel Hill.

Plunk out the cash for a custom-fitted mouth guard and it'll last for years including your smile and teeth.

11. Smooth out your tendon Inquire about ultrasound needle therapy. This procedure is minimal by using ultrasound to guide a needle.

The needle smoothens the  bone, breaks up calcifications, and fixes scar tissue. Thirteen out of twenty patients saw improvement, and the session takes only about 15 minutes of your time.

12. Buy your running shoes after work. Shop in the evening, the feet are swollen after a day of work. It approximates how your feet will be after three miles of running.

13. Do off-road running. If the surface is unstable, it trains the ankles to be stable. 14. Know where you're going. Whether it's biking, or skiing, be sure to have a dry run down any path first.

A lot of injuries can be avoided when you're familiar with the route taken.  15. Train hard. Anxiety reduces your peripheral vision by three degrees
