TRAINING AT HOME WITHOUT GETTING INJURED: ADVICE FROM OUR TRAINER
TRAINING AT HOME – Despite the closure of the gyms, we have all (or almost) continued physical activity during this period. Although training at home has become a natural routine, it is essential to be careful not to neglect specific elementary rules to avoid injuries and not come close to catastrophe.
ARE THERE MORE RISKS WHEN TRAINING AT HOME?
“It’s not that there are more risks; however, we lose our bearings because we’re not in the environment where we normally practice. We all have our little habits during workouts, whether athletes who train with weights or members who come to gyms to keep up. Some may disturb by this change in the environment. And then, there is also the fact that the trainer is not physically present to correct movements or postures during the exercises. The real “risk” is to stop all physical activity.”
WHAT ARE THE SAFETY RULES TO RESPECT?
“No matter what activity you do, it is essential to make space in the place where you are going to practice (this is important to avoid breaking the floor or breaking the TV during a workout). These are things that seem obvious but can cause an accident. Therefore, you should be careful about the things around you.
