Exercise Programme Management
For those involved in sport or regular exercise it is important to structure your exercise or training with sufficient rest to ensure that you can keep performing to the best of your ability. Fatigue can lead to poor performance, and worse, injury. Injuries and complaints after exercising with insufficient rest often present as overuse injuries which can be very serious and prevent the return to exercise for several months.
The balance between intensity, volume and frequency in your training programme dictates its effectiveness in improving performance. Correct balance between training parameters allows you to improve certain attributes at different times throughout the year and can help avoid overstraining and overuse injuries. The type of exercises you do can also predispose you to injury, for example those spending a lot of time in the gym working only on bench press may be susceptible to shoulder and elbow injuries. A balanced training approach with the inclusion of a wide range of exercise can avoid developing muscular imbalances which increase the risk of injury.
