Injuries are never fun to deal with.
You put in the hard work, you start making progress toward your fitness goals, and you begin noticing improvements in your strength and endurance.
Then, often out of nowhere, an injury strikes.
You get a sharp, shooting pain in your ankle. Or your shins start hurting while jumping. Or there’s just general pain that holds you back.
And all that hard work and progress you’ve made begins to feel futile.

In this post, I want to share some tips that can help you avoid injuries and stay (relatively) healthy while pursuing your fitness goals.
