The last thing any athlete what’s to do as they approach season is get hurt. Injury is easy to avoid if you follow a few simple rules. First, always warm-up. Even if you are running a little behind and only have a few minutes to get yourself ready for the workout, go for a quick run, do some dynamic stretches, and get a sweat going before you start your workout. Second, check your ego at the door. Have you ever heard the phrase, “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.” This pertains to Train to Hunt workouts too. I’m not talking about not doing something because it’s hard. I’m talking primarily about the weight you choose to use on your workouts. As long as you can perform the movement with proper form, do it. However, if you are having to round your back in a dead lift, or you can’t go below parallel in you squats, or lock your arms out over head in a press, then lighten up. Next, make sure you are taking 10-15 minutes post-workout and cooling down. This includes doing some static stretches, hydration, and nutrition.
If you are battling some nagging muscle soreness, slight pulls, or sprains, make sure you are icing the area for 10-15 minutes every day, and giving it some time off.
