Five Reasons That Cause Sports Injuries
Jangan skip meals. Cheating and forced reps can overstrain your biomechanical capabilities.
No stretching/warm-up: Cold muscles tear like rubber – overstretched and muscles are most injury prone when they are cold.
Lack of focus: Just like driving a car, you ought to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. If you are lackadaisical, accidents are bound to happen sooner or later!
Improper diet and dehydration: Lack of energy weakens the body. Dehydration causes cramps, dizziness and exhaustion.
Over-training: Training causes wear and tear. These need time to heal. If you train too much, your muscle and joints can’t heal properly, making them more injury prone.
Be careful everyone :)
