‘’Im injured, so I'm going to take a break from training’’
We have all said it before at some point, I have a sore shoulder or a sprained ankle. But then we get back to training a few weeks later and it is hard! We have lost some of our progress and strength training is now more difficult than it was.
That is why we recommend training even when you are hurt - as long as you are smart about it and work around the injury, not through it. This will help you maintain a base level of fitness and allow you to get back to full strength quicker once you have gotten past the injury.
Firstly, you will need to be seen by a medical professional to ensure that is safe for you to exercise and get a proper diagnosis. Once done they can give you some of their recommendations, we will take those recommendations and incorporate them into your programme that will get you back to full health and fitness.
It's not difficult to avoid an injured area when training. It's trial and error to see what works and what doesn't. The key is maintaining the right attitude and will to keep going.
