Injuries related to bodybuilding…

 

Injuries are an unessential and unavoidable element in the life of a person who works out in a gym. However, they cannot be neglected at any point of time because some injuries can be serious afterwards. Let us now examine different causes of injuries and the possible way of avoiding them.

Over Exercising

This is a major mistake done by majority of the gym enthusiasts around the world today. In order to grow muscles fast they end up over exercising, which in turn leads to problems such as muscle soreness, tear etc. You should start your exercise with a proper warm up programs followed with stretching. Keep your workout program very simple and devote a fix time interval for working out rather than endless hours.

Incorrect posture

Maximum injuries caused at the time of exercise are due to the incorrect posture. It can be continuous moments of body parts or improper balancing of equipments. Many of us complain of backaches, frozen shoulders and still keep guessing the possible reason for the injury due to lack of proper postures that should be followed for better result and less injuries.

Pushing body to the limits

There is a saying that, ‘if you want to grow then push your body to the limit’. We often take this statement in the wrong sense and end up lifting weights that are very heavy. Due to these heavy exercises, injuries are caused to our joints and the muscles groups that are being worked on. It is better to use weights that you feel comfortable as per your stamina.

In the end, it is recommended you seek the guidance of a professional fitness trainer because he will be the best person to guide and educate you about weights and postures.
