Game of the Week
Welcome to Stay in the Game, a monthly blog where the team from the Queen's Center for Sports Medicine shares the latest tips on the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. We want to help you play hard and be well - a winning combination that will keep you in the game all season long.
According to the National Institute for Health, there are four key elements of exercise:
1. Cardiovascular Activity2. Strength Training3. Flexibility4. Balance
Having a healthy mix of all four elements promotes wellness, reduces the risk of injury and can also make training more exciting by changing things up.
Unfortunately, most student athletes tend to focus on only one or two of the four key elements, which can lead to injury and keep them from performing at their peak. There's an easy fix for this – incorporating the eight core movements for health into any training regimen:
1. Squat2. Hinge3. Lunge4. Push5. Pull6. Carry7. Gait8. Plank
Need some ideas of what exercises fall into the eight core movements for health? Check out the graphic below.
