Injury Prevention For Runners
No one likes injuries, and if you've ever suffered from one previously, you'll be keen to learn a thing or two about avoiding them in the future. Endurance athletes specifically endure high training loads and perform repetitive movements in their choice of sport. This combination of traits in conjunction with often neglected strength training, exposes the athlete to a higher risk of injury. Our subject matter experts will dissect what it is to prevent injury and leave you with skills that you can easily implement into your training. As a result, these Skillboosters will enable you to understand the purpose behind intentional injury prevention, and measures to take in order to achieve this - a skill that you could directly implement into your practice or coaching spaces.
