How to Prevent Injuries

Posted by Paul Zaichik on

This is one of the most common questions I get from people. Usually people over 30.

I always take this question seriously and close to heart. It’s well known to me what it is getting injured after long training program, right before a goal is reached. In some cases, right after the skill is mastered, without having some time to enjoy that skill.

The Factors

Many factors need to be considered to stay “musculoskeletally safe.”

Hydration, nutrition, warm up, rest, periodization, etc.

However one factor that have worked for me and both amateur and professional athletes consistently is ball massage.

Having a contraction in the muscle, or a knot in the muscle is a sure way to get injured sooner or later. Those expressions of tension can build up over time or develop rather quickly.

Stress, occupational activity, and many other factors cause tension to build up in muscles.

Releasing them right before the workout works wonders for injury prevention and performance. There is good news and bad news here though. Which one do you want first?

The Good and Bad News

Ok, the good news first:


  • It’s easy to do.
  • Every aspect of performance is improved. Strength, Flexibility, Endurance, Agility, etc.
  • A workout session shows better results after a ball massage.
  • It’s not only an injury prevention technique.

The bad news:

Tension build up will always be there and needs to be dealt with regulary. Things simply build up in the body and need to be dealt with. Teeth need to be brushed, skin washed, bowels emptied. So is the tension which needs to be released on a regular basis.

Why is this bad news? Well it takes anywhere form 15-45 extra minutes of workout. Prior to the actual start of exercise.

Frequency

I personally do it often, and when I don’t, I feel it. I consider it a health thing, not just an exercise thing. Most, (not some, not many), but most top athletes do it. Those who don’t do it, get regular body work done.

I am hard pressed to think of any athlete over 30, who does not do maintenance to their muscles, and still does not get injured.
