For many of us, working from home has been a great way to remain active. As well as keeping ourselves and the community safe. Without the hands-on attention of a professional, we can make mistakes that can lead to injury. 

Too Much Too Soon

When you increase activity, unique stresses are placed on the body. Of course, you want to challenge yourself and continue to set new fitness goals. But, it would help if you gave your body time to adapt. For example, If your goal is to ride 60km, you wouldn't go out and immediately ride 55km. You should work your way up to that distance. The human body is a wonder that adapts to stresses placed on it. If you don't give your body time to adjust to a new stress, you risk injuries. These injuries can range from strains, tendonitis or fractures, to name a few. 

Poor Form 

If done correctly, lifting weights is asafe mode of fitness. Fitness trainers often provide hands-on adjustments to help you with your form. For example, performing a squat without proper form can stress your knees, low back, and hips. Proper form is essential to get the most out of your muscles. Also, to help prevent injuries by engaging the correct muscle to support the movement. 


To adapt to the current global situation, it's essential to make some adjustments to your daily routine. Everyone talks alot about mobility. That's because it's so important for overall function, performance and injury prevention. The best ways to improve mobility is by incorporatingproper warm-up, cool down, and mobility exercises into your training or fitness program.
