In our previous article, we talked about preventing common sports injuries. One of the components of keeping your body safe from harm was exercise. In this article, we will give you a ready-made recipe to follow if you want your joints and muscles to be resistant to injuries. If you commit to doing these 3 exercises regularly, the results will exceed your expectations - you will straighten your joints and muscles, and (almost) become injury-proof!
Our orthopedics Boca Raton specialists selected the following 3 sets of exercises that will strengthen the muscles around your joints: knees, hips and ankles. Be sure to warm up before and cool down after each workout session:
Start slowly by performing 5 lunges for each leg. Repeat each set 3 times (30 lunges in total) with a 30-second-long breaks between the sets. Our Orthopedics Boca Raton specialist’s reminder: remember about proper shoes!
Prop your feet on a chair or a couch, just make sure your calf is bent 90 degrees to your thigh. Do 3 sets of 5 squats per leg with 60-second-long breaks between the sets.
Keep your toes pointing straight and make sure your movement are slow and controlled. Do 3 sets of 20 heel raises (60 raised) with 30-second-long breaks between the sets.
For all of the above exercises, please take care to do them in a safe and careful way, in suitable clothing, and in of course in a safe and suitable location.
