What To Do When You Injure Yourself

Injuries are something that can make it harder for us to get close to our health and fitness goals, and I am sure that all of us have dealt with an injury from sports or exercise at some point. So, what are some of the things that we can do when we are injured to stay on track and keep moving in the right direction. 

I learned very early on when I started making it a priority to get regular exercise that when we are injured we never quit and we never train through things, we train around things. This way we can stay in the gym and not have to really take any time off from exercise at all. Let's say you pull a muscle in your quad, most people would use that as an excuse to sit on the couch. I would tell you it is a good time to train your hamstrings and opposing muscle groups a bit more until your quad heals. Or maybe that will give you a chance to train your upper body and core a bit more. A very different way to look at things. This way when you are healthy and your injury has healed you can pick up right where you left off or even still make progress rather than take several steps backwards. 

The next thing we can do, and probably the most important thing, is to focus more on diet and nutrition. The thing we hate to do the most. As there is a chance that we are going to be burning less calories due to an injury of some kind we absolutely have to make sure that we are tightening up the eating a bit more until we can return to normal activity. 

If any of this is sounding a bit overwhelming and you are thinking that you could use a little help with all of this please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Let us help you achieve the health and fitness that you've always wanted and show you that there is no other place that can give you what our personal trainers can.
