Basics of Injury Prevention
Many injuries happen at the beginning of training sessions or games because the player does not warm up his muscles.
To prevent this from happening, warm up thoroughly by gently going through the motions and performing slow, sustained stretches.
Once the training or match is over your heart rate needs to return to its regular state and muscles need to relax.
Gentle exercise like jogging or walking will bring body temperature down and decrease the heart rate, while stretching will steadily relax the muscles.
Eat Balanced Diet
What you eat and drink is just as important as your workout.
Your body loses a lot of energy when exercising which you need to restore with the right nutrients.
Food is fuel and proper daily nutrition will help to keep you energised before and after training.
