How to train safely

How to train safely

// January 26, 2023

When it comes to exercise there is a huge stigma against asking for help. When training many individuals will watch their favorite athletes and their favorite bodybuilders doing some exercises for example and they will copy them only later to get injured, sometimes seriously too. 


How can we avoid this and stay safe during our training?  


Education is one way, although many may see their idols training a certain way and doing certain exercises does not mean you should copy them and do the same thing, simply because there is more to it than what is on the surface. There is much more knowledge that goes into training than simply lifting weights for example. By educating yourself on correct training methods that are scientifically proven you will decrease the likelihood of sustaining any injuries.  


There are many ways to educate yourself to train correctly, for example using youtube. On Youtube there are many different sources and channels which will show you exactly how to train and how to train well without risking getting injured. If YouTube i not suitable for you there are many courses on the Internet which may prove suitable if you would like to know more about these e courses, please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help. 


Start slow, by starting slowly and incrementally increasing sets and reps or distance traveled for example your body will slow adapt with the excess load and in doing so you won’t get injured. By trying to go from 0 to 100 within a short weeks or even days you will place too much load and pressure on your body which will result in injury. 


Use professionals. Using professionals for their knowledge such as personal trainers and other fitness professionals to show you certain training methods and styles you are allowing them to share their knowledge and expertise with you until you have a better knowledge base to train safely on your own. In todays society there are many fitness professionals who simply do not know what they are doing and it is difficult to find some to trust.
