As the summer starts to wind down, football teams everywhere are preparing to take the field (and I couldn’t be more excited). During regular football practices, you will run sprints, do agility drills, bench press, and vertical jumps. But how can you help get your athlete prepared for these daily workouts and avoid the injuries all at the same time? With Physical Therapy!
Many athletes will tell you that one of the biggest tests you will go through during football tryouts and training is endurance. The biggest thing that will test your endurance is running. You will have to run long distances and quick spurts in a short amount of time in order to play the game. One of the biggest contributing factors to injuries is fatigue. When fatigue sets in, athletes tend to lose focus and compensate putting more stress on opposing muscles ultimately causing injuries. Before your athlete’s next endurance training session, talk with us about some at home training exercises for them to build up their endurance.
