For most of you people reading this… At some point in your training career you will get injured.

It’s inevitable.

As I sit here and write this to you now – I am currently injured.

Pulled my back doing front squats earlier – Done the same injury twice before.

I’m not surprised by it – I know what I need to do and I will do it.

It’s just one of these things – I want to perform at a high level, therefore I’m willing to take the risk and every so often… I will tear/tweak/injure/sprain something.

I will get injured. And I’m willing to roll the dice.

David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and many other high level athletes and performers get injured, They have the best care and support around them at their beck and call 24/7 and they still manage to get injured.

I would imagine – You will also get injured too.

Here’s the thing though – It’s a numbers game, it’s a risk vs reward.

You can train and go your full life without getting injured.

You’re either –

  1. Extremely lucky.
  2. Not pushing yourself to your bodies limit.

Either of the above options are fine.

But just keep in mind – If you decide to roll the dice and push forward with your training to a level that your body is going beyond what it once did.

You leave yourself open for injury.

My only quick advice is –

Supplement well and eat well.

Carry out prehab and mobility work

And ensure that you can do exercises with correct form.

Other than that – Don’t fret too much over an injury.

You can minmise but not eliminate the problem.

Roll the dice,
