Preventing Weight Lifting Injuries

EXTRA! EXTRA! "GREAT NEWS" GRAND OPENING !!

Weightlifting is a common type of sport or physical activity many individuals prefer for strengthening their upper body muscles but weightlifting also commonly results in injury. By following a few safety tips, you can prevent hurting yourself while weightlifting to continue training your body effectively.

The most popular weight lifting routines today mainly focus on completing a workout within a limited amount of time. Using a fixed group of exercises, the point of this type of workout is to complete the routines as quickly as each person is individually able to. Focusing on speed during an exercise or physical activity can be a major factor for potential injury. Training is about working out accordingly at the most appropriate tempo for each weight and lift. Slowing down the tempo while weight lifting will help increase the amount of energy an individual has to finish a lift. Additionally, taking a sufficient amount of time for rest in between sets can help prepare an individual both mentally and physically for the next exercise.

Then, when considering safety measures for injury prevention, an individual should note that their exercise routines for weight lifting should include lifts that strengthen and both the front and back sides of the body. Balancing exercises for the entire body will help strengthen the various muscles of the body as well as avoid overusing and underusing other muscle groups and risk an injury.

Most importantly, in order to avoid injury, an individual should never sacrifice form while lifting. Performing each lift with correct form is the best way to avoid an injury. Lifting weights that are heavier than an individual’s normal lifting weight, lifting the weights rapidly, or simply being unfamiliar with the proper way to lift, are all ways that compromise form and could cause an injury.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

There is an extensive variation of exercises and sports today, each which can specifically focus on strengthening different groups of muscles in the body. The variety of workouts can be suitable for enhancing every individual’s fitness needs. Regardless of the fitness routine an individual chooses, injury prevention should be the most important part of anyone’s workout.
