Sentinel Performance LLC

If there’s one thing that exercise and athletics can prove to us, it’s that the human body is an incredibly resilient and impressive machine. From running fast (and far), to jumping high, to lifting heavy, our bodies are capable of being trained to do a wide variety of complex movements better than any other animal on the planet. But pushing our body’s limits in the pursuit of glory, curiosity, or even just sheer accident, can sometimes come at a cost.

It is inevitable over the span of our lives that we will get injured. Whether it’s a simple sprained joint, minor tendonitis or something major that requires surgical repair, painful injuries can sometimes cause us to take an undesired time-out from our exercise routine. However, when managed correctly, this doesn’t mean that we have to stop altogether forever! Following doctor’s orders, and understanding how to begin working out again after injury can get you back into the gym in no time at all following any painful setback.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind next time you are faced with re-entering the gym after injury:

 Get your doctor’s clearance first – don’t cut corners on your rehab

-          Listen to your body – pain is your body’s way of telling you something is not right

-          Consult an exercise professional – understand what exercises you are able to do at the onset

-          Start slowly – focus on form and movement mechanics by starting with low loads and high reps

-          Have a healthy mindset – understand that it will take time to get back to where you were before

When treated properly, most any injury can be managed and does not have to keep you sidelined for long! And, should the time ever come where you need the help and guidance of a qualified strength coach to get you back into the action, we are here to help!
