Recovering from Knocks and Sprains

By | August 26, 2014

A sprained muscle can make you feel extremely sore the next day, yet if you’ve got another training session on that day, you need to pull yourself together. It’s hard to feel fit and explosive when you have a minor injury, but if it’s only a small sprain you’ll find that the pain goes away as you begin to work out.

Footballers have to recover from ‘knocks’ all the time, and the more time you spend relaxing on the sofa, the more unfit you will become, so even if you’re in a bit too much pain for an intense workout, you should still find a way to push yourself, even if that means exercising at home to a fitness DVD.

The more you workout, the better you will recover, but you have to put the work in when you’re training. So make sure you pick yourself up and dust yourself down when you’ve picked up a minor sprain, your body will then begin to adapt and recover more quickly in the future.
