What Are Some Typical Injuries That Result From Weight Training, And What Can I Do To Prevent Them?

Question: What are some typical injuries that result from weight training, and what can I do to prevent them?

Answer: Common injuries in weight lifting include shoulder injuries and injuries to the rotator cuff, low-back pain and kneecap pain. Ways of avoiding weight lifting injuries include keeping your hands and your elbows in view especially when you're doing overhead lifts -- this will help protect your shoulder from being placed in a compromised position.

Other things you can do are use a back brace and practice proper breathing when lifting, and finally, paying particular attention to your weight lifting technique can help you prevent getting weight lifting injuries.
