You may think that being active is enough to take care of your body but the thing is, you are susceptible to injuries when you are playing a lot of sports if you don’t employ the proper measures.

In any sport, it is quite painful to see any great player have his career cut short because of an injury and what more if this happened to you. You’ll hear countless stories about how promising college athletes lost their chances to get into the big leagues because of a serious injury.

Just because you are lifting weights, doesn’t mean that you have to grow in to a large and bulky hulk. There are a lot of new programs out there that cater specifically to a particular sport. These programs would help train your body to get used to the strain and movements that your sport requires, and highlight the needed skills for it. Weights could increase your agility, speed, and stamina. With stronger muscles, your body has better support for movements such as running, jumping, pivoting, and laterals.
Always warm up
Warming up correctly before a game or training is very crucial if you want to avoid injuries. Make sure you are able to stretch your muscles properly, and heat them enough so that you don’t pull, twist, or tear them. Warming up does not only help you avoid injuries, but it helps you bring your “A” game as well because you can move a lot better. When warming up, it’s important that you remember to do it the right way. Doing it wrong would prove to be detrimental to your goals either you overdid it, or stretched the wrong muscles.
These are just a few things that could help you avoid injuries. It is always best to consult a doctor on certain exercises and he or she would also know whether you need extra gear such as arch support, knee braces, and back support. Everyone’s body is built differently and the impact of certain sports is different with every individual. With a healthy body and the proper preparation, you’d be able to call yourself an athletic machine like iron men just like the NBA’s A.C. Green.
