HOW TO STAY SAFE DURING EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Exercising regularly has wide-ranging physical, emotional and social health benefits. You need to exercise safely to remain healthy and injury-free. If it’s safe and painless, you’re more likely to stick to it! Safety is about using common sense, understanding basic techniques and listening to your body.

See your doctor for a check-up before embarking on a physical activity program. Your doctor, physiotherapist or your personal trainer can offer you tips about staying safe while exercising.

Here are some tips to stay safe and injury-free:

1.Be aware of your body. Think about how the particular exercise is making you feel. If something doesn’t feel right, stop immediately and seek medical advice.

2.Warm up and cool down. Try slow stretches and go through the motions of your sport or activity before starting. Cool down with slow stretching.

3.Mix it up. Try other sports and exercises to reduce the risk of overtraining.

4.Stay hydrated. You can lose around one and a half litres of fluid for every hour of exercise; so drink water before, during and after a session.

5.Do it right. Try to get the technique right from the beginning, to ensure you are using your muscles correctly.

Finally, you can add your nutrition system to get an integrated result, which can help you feel energetic during and after the workout.
