Safety and injury prevention
Transcript of Safety and injury prevention
Explain safety factors to be considered when designing and implementing physical fitness programs for young people.
Prepare your body and mind for the activity ahead.
Warming up is an essential safety requirement in all sports so you reduce your chances of injuring your muscles, tendons or ligaments.
A warm-up should include activities for increasing your heart rate, mobilisation, and stretching, as well as a sport-specific activity.
Exercise True or False
Any at all?
You should slowly lower your heart rate, your respiratory rate and your body temperature.
The aim of the cool down is to remove lactic acid and reduce muscular soreness you might experience in the days following your training or exercise.
To conclude every session, you should do a low-intensity activity such as a walk or light jog, followed by some gentle stretching.
Safe-exercise selection should be a priority, for both the athlete and the coach, in order to prevent unnecessary injury.
Exercises and activities that have been proven to unnecessarily cause placement of strain on the body and lead to injury are known as contra-indicated exercises. These exercises should be replaced with alternative activities that entail a lower risk.
Athletes sometimes sacrifice correct technique in an effort to increase the number of repetitions they perform or the amount of weight they lift. Three examples are push-ups in which you do not lower yourself to the floor or return to straight elbows, chin-ups you achieve by swinging and jerking your legs, and bicep curls you perform by using your back and legs to initiate momentum.
No pain, no gain

Increased strength will lead to increased power and speed
Specific exercise can cause a reduction of fat in a specific part of the body
Weight is an accurate indicator of body composition
