Avoiding Injury With “The Stick”

16 Feb

You ask yourself, how can a massage stick help me to avoid injuries?  Here is how:

  1. By rolling over your muscles, you can feel tightness.
  2. By rolling over your tight muscles, you will loosen them up.
  3. By rolling over your muscles, you may feel knots (trigger points).  Knots lead to injuries.
  4. By rolling over your muscles, you will release those knots.
  5. By rolling over your muscles before exercise, you will warm them up.
  6. By rolling over your muscles after exercise, you will help to cool them down.
  7. By rolling over your muscles, you will increase circulation.  Poor circulation leads to muscle fatigue.
  8. By rolling over your muscles, you will segmentaly stretch each muscle.  Flexibility is good!
  9. By rolling over your muscles, you may feel soreness that you never thought you had.
  10. By rolling over your muscles, you will get to know your own body!!!

The Stick can do all this and more!!

I also found a great article that refers to avoiding fitness faux pas.  The actual title of the article is:

Don’t hurt yourself: Avoid 5 fitness faux pas

Play it safe with tips for avoiding injury on the field, in the gym

Basically the five faux pas to avoid are:

  1. Not sporting the right gear
  2. Ignoring instruction
  3. Overdoing it
  4. Not varying your routine
  5. Overexposing yourself to Mother Nature
