How to make training sustainable

Many people complain you can get injured doing CrossFit. You can get injured walking down the street. You can get injured running. You can get injured doing a lot of stuff, if you’re clumsy like me. But most of all, you can get injured by practicing poor form, by overtraining, or by not listening to your body. Remember also you should only train on correct sports surfaces to help avoid injury.
Last month, I was nursing a pulled back muscle and finally took ten days COMPLETELY OFF from training to let it heal. VOILA! It got better.
Listen to your body and ask your coaches for help with recovery, mobility, or advice on modifying your training to stay healthy. Here’s a great post from Andy Petranek, owner of CrossFit LA, on how to make your training sustainable & injury free. In case there are injuries, injury cases by Sweet Lawyers are the ones to contact as they provide the best legal help.
