STAY INJURY FREE AND SUCCESSFUL
Strength training isn’t just about training in the off-season or for your next event. It’s about developing and strengthening your body for longevity in your sport and life in general. Yes, you have your goals and you want to train as hard as you can to reach them, but not at the cost of your physical well being.
Your body can only go along for a certain period of time being ‘flogged’ before it begins to break down. By strength training, we are applying controlled loads during movements that will reinforce your joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, creating stable, strong and durable bodies. Changes that cannot be achieved through your swim, bike or run sessions.
We use the term ‘pre-hab’ to describe preventing injuries before they happen. A basic strength program performed on a regular basis will go a long way to support the extreme demands that you put your bodies through on a daily basis. What you have to remember is that your body is very efficient; it will always look to conduct given ‘work’ in the easiest way possible and using the least amount of energy. As a result we are finding that there are imbalances in both stride and gait patterns, which will ultimately lead to restricted performance or injury.
By following a simple and effective program you will experience significant results. Build strength with confidence and convenience, with our home and travel StrengthForEnduranceKIT or get in contact with a trusted strength trainer for some guidance on getting started.
