How to avoid injuries during exercise?

You probably love the visible results of playing sports, but when we do any activity, it is important to follow these simple tips that will help you avoid injury.

1. Warm up

Perform a warm up for at least 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Short breaks

Take a short break between each exercise.

3. Don't overdo it

Always use the right equipment for you, advised by your instructors. This will depend on your fitness, weight, and exercise goals.

4. Cooling period

At the end of your exercise routine be sure to give a cooling period, you can walk slowly for 10 minutes, or make gentle movements to cool your back, arms, and legs.

5. Stretch

Stretch before and after the exercise, with 15 to 30 seconds in each position, without bouncing.

6. Use suitable products

Use the most suitable Monkey Hands product for your sport so that you increase your safety and avoid any injury.

7. Hydrate

Your muscles are made of 70% water, so staying hydrated with small sips of water during your training will help you perform more and prevent cramp injuries.

8. Pick your activities

Select the activity according to your personal taste. You can alternate physical activities to give variety to your routines.

9. Listen to your body

If your body asks you to rest or stop, it's time to pay attention. Many times, we want to go "beyond" our limits and sometimes it can result in an injury that is easy to prevent.

10. Keep a balanced diet

The power of minerals. Potassium, which is found naturally in bananas and tomatoes, will help prevent cramps in your muscles. Include them as part of your balanced diet.
