What are the causes of overuse injuries and what can I do to avoid them?

Incorrect exercise form and beginning a program doing too much too fast are the most common factors leading to these types of injuries. The best ways to avoid these injuries are to make sure that you are using correct exercise form while training and to do the appropriate volume ofexercise during a workout session.

My recommendation is to begin slowly when changing to a new routine until you become acclimated to the new exercises and program. Be open to changing your training program regularly. This is done for numerous reasons, some of which are avoidance of staleness and boredom, and giving new, fresh stimulus to the body.

Add some low impact aerobic exercise such as walking, bicycling, swimming and water aerobics to your strength training to round out your training. Design a new strength training program using compound exercises that train large groups of muscle groups such as squats, bench presses, deadlifts and barbell presses. Substitute new exercises or old ones that you haven’t done in a while for some that you are currently doing to prevent doing the same exercises over and over. This goes a long way to preventing excessive wear and tear on your ligaments and joints which is a major cause of overuse injuries.
