Injuries, something many athletes experience at some point in their careers, but something none of us want. Lifting weights is dangerous, and just like any other sport, bodybuilding and powerlifting can both lead to mild and severe injuries. What causes these injuries? How can we prevent future ones? Andrea, Alberto and Brad join together this week to discuss these important issues.
The coaches start by each describing their own extensive list of injuries which they have accumulated over the years. How is their training today still being impacted from a few ill decisions made years ago? What do the coaches do now in terms of both preventative maintenance and warming up, to help mitigate the lasting impact from these previous injuries and prevent new ones? What style of programming does coach Brad Loomis implement with not only himself, but also with his athletes to help reduce the risk of getting injured? These questions only begin to scratch the surface of what is discussed during today’s roundtable conversation on injuries.
Towards the end, the group transitions away from the more commonly talked about physical injuries, and into the realm of the oftentimes more serious psychological injuries. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to see the lasting impact of only one or two misguided preps leave an individual with a lifetime of hardships.
