Portland Gyms & Fitness: Wear And Tear on The Body!
I just got back from the Orthopedist and I was going in there for some knee pain that was I created about two weeks doing a body weight squat. After doing some X-rays and other types of tests, it basically came down to wear and tear on my body. I have been active since I can remember and I love just doing things. Of course, there are some things that I won’t do anymore, like launching off a quarter pipe ramp on the street, but I will do that on the slopes because I know the the snow won’t hurt as bad. What it comes down to is that no matter how great of shape a person is in, we need to focus on the basics and making sure we are getting enough stretching in on a daily basis, we are eating the right types and amounts of food, drinking enough water and paying attention to our bodies when they are speaking to us.
When I felt my knee, I knew that I needed to start implementing stabilization training in my routines, but did I: NO! Now look at my knee, it hurts. It is always those small little muscles, tendons, ligaments that give us problems, not the large ones. So from this day forward, I am going to be stretching more, and doing more functional and stabilization training, especially in my upper and lower legs. Even professional trainers like myself and not immune to aches and pains, but it is how we approach the injury and figure out how to rehab and workout smart at the same time.
