Five Reasons That Cause Sports Injuries

  1. 1.

    Jangan skip meals. Cheating and forced reps can overstrain your biomechanical capabilities.

  2. 2.

    No stretching/warm-up: Cold muscles tear like rubber – overstretched and muscles are most injury prone when they are cold.

  3. 3.

    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!

  4. 4.

    Improper diet and dehydration: Lack of energy weakens the body. Dehydration causes cramps, dizziness and exhaustion.

  5. 5.

    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 :)
