Be Ready for Your Big Race with NO Niggles.
Smash your PB at your next event.
Know EXACTY how to Progress Your Training without Increasing Your Risk of Injury.

“I’m Fit, Strong and have Good Technique, Why do things still Hurt when I Train More?”

Because NO Amount of Technique can Protect Anyone, in Any Sports, from the Effects of Overloading.
Your Body is Robust and Strong and can be trained to do amazing things, however, doing Too Much Too Soon or having Random Spikes in Activity are Sure-Fire ways to OVERLOAD of Your tissues.
When You Load Your tissues Beyond their Capacity and Tolerance, structures, e.g. Tendons and Bones, become Sensitised and Painful.
Further, Physical Loading is “calculated” over a 5-week period, this is why Your Pain and Injuries seem to come on “for No Apparent Reasons” and Resting it for A Week or Two Doesn’t Work either.
Training at High Intensity and High Volume are NOT a problem, HOW YOU GET THERE IS!

Typical Mistakes Recreational Athletes Make when Increasing Their Training

1. Increasing Training Intensity Too Much
E.g. Speed, Rigour.
2. Increasing Training Volume Too Soon
E.g. Distance, Number of Sessions Per Week.
3. Lack of / Insufficient Rest
E.g. Sleep, Rest Days.
4. Lack of / Insufficient Recovery
E.g. Cool Down, Stretching, Massage.
5. Lack of / Insufficient Complimentary Performance Enhancement Training
E.g. Strengthening Programme, Dynamic Movement Control.

The KEY in managing Overload Injuries is to find the Balance between Doing Enough to Maintain Your Conditioning but Not Too Much to Hinder Your Recovery process, or Worse, Continually Aggravating Your injury.
