Weight training is one of the world's most popular sporting activities. It is also a leading cause of sports injuries, especially among young people whose bodies are still developing. Learn in detail how to avoid injury when weight training, and what you should do if an injury occurs. Pre-training preparation is vital, and this book discusses everything from selecting the right gym and using equipment properly to mental training and proper warm-up routines. The causes and cures for weight-training injuries are clearly described, with a particular emphasis on developing good technique. Methods of self-treatment for injury are given priority, but the book is also clear about when you should see a doctor. Discover: • How to rehabilitate a shoulder injury. • How simple changes in posture can protect your back. • What type of weight training routine you should follow if you are under eighteen. • The importance of good nutrition. • The dangers of performance-enhancing drugs.
