Injuries

Why do some athletes get repeated injuries and others none, few or minor ones only? How can I avoid this dilemma?

    Good question. Prevention in the first place is key instead of dealing with recovering and repeating cycle.

    Some general principles (from the lore and canon) would be:

    >Let your body gradually adapt to applied stress
    >When volume is high, intensity is low; when intensity is high, volume is low
    >Recover well, and this includes sleeping and eating properly

    1. Genetics
    2. Poor biomechanics (form is everything)
    3. Wrong shoes (training shoes with very little support)
    4. Running repeatedly on wrong surface
    5. Not incorporating a strength training regime
    6. diet
    7. Not giving body time off to heal properly
    8. Not listening to the body when it hurts and asks for you to slow down
    9. Too much contact with ground (pounding. You need to be like a feather touching the ground. Skipping is key).
    10. Doing too much too soon or too early and not giving the body time to adapt

    I'm amazed this hasn't cued the coach blaming game. You know where athletes don't take responsibility for themselves

    Excellent list. May I add one more?

    #11 Nor allowing yourself to fully recover from an injury. Training through injuries does not work. It's an old wives tale perpetuated by idiotic coaches who tell athletes to run through the pain.

    I can't think of any athlete who would continue to train when they know full well that will not end well. Train smart and you will do just fine

    If seriously injured in both of your senior years of high school, is it likely a D1 school will still honour athletic scholarship or is that seen as major red flag?

    And because there are tons of people doing it does that make it the right thing to do or suggest it's okay for high schoolers to do? Really?

    Of course not. But that's not what the poster was saying. To claim that many, many, many athletes do not push through injuries (stupidly) when they should or do know better has to be trolling, stupidity, or someone who has never been (or should never be) involved with athletes in any capacity. In my own experience, high school and university athletes especially are constantly in denial about how to properly handle an injury.

    I'm sure D1 schools scour this site and make decisions based on false anonymous posts about injuries.

    Assuming when you say serious injury these athletes didn't complete at all in their 2 senior years? In that they case I'm sure they wouldnt have been offered a D1 scholarship.

    not what OP said. Don't deny problems in the athlete experience. Work to fix them/ spread reasonable and honest info about them.

    Of course D1 schools don't scour this site which is why I wondered if there was an honour code of sorts where the athlete discloses major injuries, especially repetitive reoccurring ones? A pattern of results, serious injury, results, serious injury, etc would warrant careful consideration by a D1 school offering money.

    Are we talking a pattern of good results, then "serious" injury, good results again, then "serious" injury, bc if that's what you're claiming then none of it makes sense and the injury wasn't very "serious" to begin with.

    Almost sounds like you're upset an athlete has been awarded a scholarship, and that you're grasping a little bit by upselling an old injury. Or maybe I'm reading your post all wrong.
