Top Gym Injuries And How To Fight Back

Today I’d like to introduce a guest post from Nick Clipton of Building Body Muscles. Nick writes about gaining lean muscle and burning fat, and is sharing some wisdom on injury management. Read time: 2 minutes.

If you’re working hard in the gym, one thing that you must be working hard to avoid is an injury.  Nothing is more frustrating than moving along nicely on your program only to find that you’ve become injured.

If you’re someone who’s very dedicated to seeing results, this can immediately put a halt to your progress because in many cases, it’ll cause you to have to take weeks, if not potentially months off from certain aspects of your workout to recover.

Injuries can also quickly become chronic as well if poor form is the reason for the injury, so making sure that you’re looking out for the most common gym injuries that occur will go a long way towards keeping you injury-free.

If you don’t want to end up sidelined, be sure to take a look at the following so you can avoid them.

Injury: Lower Back Pain

The first gym injury that’s extremely common is lower back pain.  The reason this one is so prevalent is due to the fact that so many exercises can put that lower back at risk.  Since often you’ll also be lifting such a high amount of weight while performing the exercises, this virtually means that you have that much added force coming down on the muscle tissues.

So what are the big exercises to be on the lookout for?  The main ones are the shoulder press, the bench press, lateral raises, and then squats.

In all of these movements you must be taking special care to ensure that the back stays in a nice straight alignment and doesn’t become curved or rounded at any point throughout the exercise.

For instance, when doing the shoulder press, you must think of squeezing the butt muscles and pulling in the stomach as you press the weight overhead or there is a very good chance you will get a sway in your back.

Likewise with the bench press, be sure that lower back doesn’t start lifting up off the bench too much or that can also result in lower back pain.  Some lift is alright if it helps you press more weight, but too much lift and you’re asking for problems.

Injury: Knee Pain

Next up on our list of common gym injuries is knee pain. This is another very frustrating one to deal with and often comes and goes as time passes on.

To avoid knee pain, focus on making sure the knees are always following the toes whenever you’re performing lunges, step ups, leg press, or squats.

The minute they start to move inwards or outwards you should immediately correct this to prevent them from losing proper tracking.  If you don’t, you can expect grinding to occur and that will result in the sheer pain you feel with this injury.

Injury: Tennis Elbow

Third, tennis elbow is actually another common injury.  If you thought this only occurred with tennis players, think again.

Because you’ll be extending the elbow carrying a weight in many of the exercises you perform (shoulder press, incline bench, regular bench, etc), this wear and tear can really grind on those joints and tendons.

Be careful about how much volume you’re doing with the bench press and incline press especially as these are two movements that really do seem to aggravate this injury.

If you do start to feel pain, immediately ice the area afterwards and consider substituting with a different exercise for a while instead.

Injury: Pulled Groin

Finally, the last injury that you must make yourself aware of is a pulled groin.  This is quite common also if you’re into doing heavy lunges or squats and unfortunately even though it’s just a muscle pull, it can nag at your for weeks if not given enough rest.

To help prevent this one, be sure that you are using a weight that is realistic for you (lifting far too heavy is a sure-fire way to cause this injury) and then also make sure that you’re fully warmed up before performing any of these exercises.

Cold muscles asked to lift a heavy weight will always lead to problems so really be aware of this before beginning.

So there you have all the main injuries that you should be aware of as you go about your workout program.  If you can keep a close eye on the problematic exercises and then take the steps necessary to prevent the injury from occurring, you should be able to stay pain-free and continue on with your workouts as planned.

It’s time to quit fucking around here, and claim your rightful place.

Here’s the 10 Modules I will be BURNING INTO YOUR PRETTY LITTLE LEADER SOUL during our time together!

(A Module a day keeps the peasant energy away)

Module 1: Leader Energy

Owning it, being it, living it, no excuses, just dropping in to NOW being the unquestionable next level leader who EVERYBODY looks to and who runs the damn thing. I don’t have to tell ya –
We could pretty much just do this module and you’d be done.

 Module 2: Multi-Millionaire Leader BELIEFS

Wealthy people have certain beliefs which broke ass peeps do not. It is what it is and that’s all it is. Guess what? PURPOSE driven wealthy peeps are another level altogether.
Change your beliefs >
Change your life.
It’s THAT freaking simple.

 Module 3: Leader Sales Hustle and Monetization

Leaders sell how leaders sell and they monetize with NO shame, ALL soul, and all RESULTS.
This is a mindset AND it’s about gettin’ real with what works.
So that’s what we’re gonna do!

 Module 4: Leader Content Creation

Look, nobody needs or gives a fuck about any more lame ass low-vibe please look at me teaching and preaching.
The Internet IS full. Boring does NOT sell. Too many folks are out there just trying to re-churn what everybody else is doing.
BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SPACE FOR THE NEXT MAGNETIC AF LEADER TO TAKE CHARGE.
I’ll show you how to pull that out of you. And explode it to the world.

 Module 5: Leader Social Media OWNING

Let’s get you big.

Engaged.

Listened to.

EVERY WORD HUNG OFF.

And consistently fucking paid.

Social media is a VERY easy tool to make work for you and nope I’m not talking about analytics or algorithms. I’m talking about being everywhere, all the time, in a way they can’t ignore, and also with minimum effort for maximum result.

 Module 6: Leader Squad

Leaders don’t do shit that leaders don’t do or leaders ain’t leaders. We are gonna sort out your support system and streamline your LIFE. With or without ‘team’. I started with this with NO staff or team, NO money, and yet I still knew how to keep my energy and time to what mattered and let other people pick up my slack.
Leaders are supported and lifted up, PERIOD. Let’s get this happening for you.

 Module 7: Leader Daily Disciplines, Practices, Routines, Must Dos and Absolutely-Fucking-Will-Not-Dos!

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.

Also probably the real thing (energy aside!) that gets you paid big.

 Module 8: Leader ABUNDANCE Creation

ALL the calling-in-of-money shiz-niz you need to know about and EVERY damn thing I have done over the years to dial it up from broke to abundant and rich-from-soul AF.

Module 9: Leader Lit-Up-Ed-Ness and Joie de Vivre

People ain’t gonna be interested if you’re not interesting girlfriend.
We are going to recapture your fucking FIRE, and I’ll show you exactly how.

 Module 10: Leader MAGNETISM

Being the most ‘they can’t look away’ person out there, where no matter what you do or how random it is PEOPLE HAVE TO HAVE IT ‘CAUSE IT’S YOU.

Yep, that is an INTENSIVE learning schedule but we did already agree it’s time to quit fucking around. Besides which, this is not about learning. This is about remembering, remembering, remembering, and motherfucking BEING –

All that you were always meant to damn well be.

BELLS AND 6-INCH STILETTOS OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT IS YOU WANT TO PUT ON, ONNNNNN.

Literally every possible thing you possibly need to know to NOW run the damn thing is what we’re covering here.

Modules will be delivered directly into the group each day and include LIVE as well as listen / watch / learn at home content. A lot of content! But only exactly what you need!

Listen –

I know you have this burning inside of you which is NOT going to go away.

You know and have always known that you are different, not just from the other PEOPLE, but from the other entrepreneurs.

The thing is gorgeous –

At some point you’re going to need to say yes to that.

  1. Thanks for the great information out there.
    It is true that Bee Pollen is one of the most nutritious source of vital vitamins, minerals and enzymes. There are no two opinions about it.
    However it should be noted that these food supplements can sometimes cause serious complexities in some cases, where the person is a known case of being allergic to pollens.
