After a recent post about training my forties, my inbox was inundated with questions about injuries. Obviously, many have suggested that I should suffer from injuries based on how I continue to exercise at my age. Fortunately, it is not. I have been injured for over 20 years. With this in mind, I posted the following video, where I share my thoughts on this issue.
Fighting injuries and their prevention
Injury prevention is a topic that I take quite seriously, based on my own experience with injuries in my youth. I know the frustration and pain of injuries, so I hope others can learn from the mistakes I once made. Over the years I have learned how to train effectively, without beating myself and not crashing into the ground.
Thus, it is obvious that there are no guarantees against accidents or injuries, but we can all be active, learning reasonably to avoid failures. As I have said many times, the purpose of training is to become stronger and more elasticThere is no glory in overcoming structural pain just to complete the workout. I train to improve myself and not run to the ground. If your training leaves you constantly beaten and tired, you do it wrong.
Make changes to your conditions before you have no other options due to injury.
