Dear Soccer players!
We all love the game. We love soccer, the World Cup, and all the excitement surrounding the sport. Players are getting faster, stronger, and more competitive each year. Unfortunately we are seeing more and more injuries especially in our female athletes. We may not be able to prevent all injuries, but we can significantly reduce the risk of injury! This is what Made 2 Move is all about. We love rehab and getting athletes back and better than ever from an injury, but keeping athletes on the field while injury-free while becoming stronger, faster and more agile is our ultimate goal!. We’ve compiled all the latest research for you and now we know the 3 most powerful tools to help reduce our risk of injury.
1- Dynamic Stretching and warm-ups
2- Strength training
3- Limiting overall training volume
Today, we want to dig into the first tool – Dynamic Stretching and Warm-ups!
