Weight Lifting – Myth of Injury

One of the biggest myths regarding weight lifting is that it will certainly cause injury.   This is FALSE.   When weight lifting is performed correctly, it will not produce injury.   To the contrary, it will make the body more resistant to injury.   Bad form can always lead to injury, however.   In contrast, good form and lifting strengthens the muscles, joints and tendons and helps you be resistant to injuries.   This means that you are also preventing injuries from everyday activities (walking on ice, raking leaves, carrying objects, etc.)

LIFT weights in good form and regularly!!!  There are sooo many benefits.    Simply put your mind to it and as Nike says,  “Just Do It.”

Stay tuned…….
