Mahir Reiss Issues Comment On Injury Prevention Strategies
Date:7/9/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Mahir Reiss is a veteran physical therapist who regularly uses his knowledge to help athletes prevent and recover from injury. Now, Dr. Reiss is lending his support to a new article that details some important strategies that any athlete should use in order to prevent injury. Regardless of whether the individual is a “weekend warrior” or a pro competitor, these tips are useful to bear in mind when hitting the field, court, or rink.

It is often a challenge for passionate athletes to force themselves to take a break from their beloved sport. However, proper rest and recovery is essential in order for the body to heal itself and prevent injury. Those who are working out for hours each day, seven days per week are more vulnerable to overuse injuries, muscle tears, and other concerns. An individual should take one or two days each week to rest and let their body recover from their taxing workouts.

Proper sleep is also a necessity for a competitor on any level. Adequate rest is essential in order for growth and repair to take place. A person who is especially active should aim to get between eight and nine hours of sleep each night. Studies show that cardiovascular performance can decrease by up to 20 percent when an individual is sleep deprived. For those who cannot get the proper amount of rest at night, naps are a useful tool to stay healthy while exercising.

Mahir Reiss notes, “Proper sleep is a must for anyone, but is especially important for a person who is pushing their body to the limit each day. Sleep is beneficial for both the body and the mind. It lets muscles recover and it helps the mind to feel rested, thus allowing the individual to function well the next day. Plus, those who don’t sleep well are often less inspired to hit the gym.”

Once an individual has completed a workout for the day, they must consume the right kind of post-exercise meal. This includes plenty of water, and a mixture of carbohydrates and protein. It is advisable to eat between 15 and 30 minutes after exercise, since this is the time when muscles are most receptive to fuel.

When arriving at the gym and before leaving, a person should engage in a proper warm up and cool down. This prevents muscle soreness, as well as injury. Even a few minutes of walking or cycling is enough to get the body ready for a workout. After the exercise session is complete, the individual should go for a slow walk or do some stretches in order to prevent muscle soreness and stiffness.

“Those who are unsure about how to properly prepare for a workout should consult with a fitness or medical professional who can provide tips. This helps to prevent the individual from sustaining injury by working out improperly and failing to care for the body,” states Mahir Reiss.
