Gymchat 174 - Training Around Injuries

Do you keep training when you're injured, or do you take it easy for a bit?


Quick reminder : this week we're discussing a situation that we all face occasionally - should we keep training when we're injured? On what does the answer depend - where, how and possibly even why?

(do you grit your teeth and bear it when you know it was your own fault?)

Barry's answers may surprise you.

Despite our best efforts, everyone gets injured from time to time. A minor scratch, or something a little more serious.

When that happens, how does it impact your training? Does it depend on which area is injured? Or the severity perhaps?

This week we're going to discuss the various ways to assess, resolve and work around the problems you may face. Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than Grapplefit's Barry Gibson.
