Avoiding Injuries

What is the best way or ways to avoid injury when restarting a sport in the spring? 

This is a common issue for sports enthusiasts who don’t properly maintain fitness levels in the off season and certainly includes weekend warriors. This reinforces the importance of maintaining an adequate level of conditioning to both live a healthy life and enjoy partaking in sports such as tennis and golf.

A fitness program designed to both prevent injuries and help provide sports enjoyment should include stretching, aerobic and strength training. Some of the common areas for injuries are the shoulders, elbows and hips, therefore some of the training focus should be on strengthening these areas. There are exercises that will build up these areas involving the use of dumbbells and bands.

For the shoulders hold a light dumbbell in each hand and rotate it in a clockwise motion while holding it at shoulder height to train the rotator cuff area.  Reverse direction and do a series of rotations in that direction.

For the hips attach a cable from a cable machine to your ankle and do a series of side, rear and frontal extensions to develop strength and flexibility.

To strengthen the elbow region use dumbbell curls, strength band triceps extensions and wrist rotations using an iron grip twisting tool ,available at sporting goods stores.
