Don’t sleep on your stomach. I see many people who find sleeping quite uncomfortable. They often wake up with neck pain or back pain and can feel stiff and achy in the morning. Sometimes people can wake in the night and find it hard to get comfortable at all.
Firstly, Never, ever sleep on your stomach. Sleeping on your stomach increases the pressure and stress placed on the joints and tissues of your lower back and neck and you’ll end up with stiffness, pain and discomfort.
Ankle Sprains are among the most common of all sports-related injuries. The ankle joint is designed to adapt to uneven terrain, but a sudden or forceful twisting motion can result in damage to the ankle ligaments and in severe sprains, the ligaments can be torn.
The most common ankle sprain is an inversion ankle sprain where the ankle turns over so the sole of the foot faces inwards, causing the ligaments on the outside of the ankle to stretch beyond their limit.
Truth be told, we all know we should warm-up, and many of you probably do ‘warm-up’ in some shape or form. However, a quick jog on the treadmill for 10-15 minutes and a few stretches before a workout does not constitute a proper warm-up and does nothing in terms of preparing you for the more dynamic nature of what you’ll be doing in your actual training session. You can spend this time working on your weakness and imbalances or you can just add to these imbalances.
