Exercise therapy is best defined as the prescription of bodily movement to correct impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, or maintain a state of wellbeing. It may vary from carefully selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts of the body, to general and/or vigorous activities that can return an injured person back to their peak of physical condition.

Exercise therapy seeks to accomplish the following goals:
¥Enable ambulation;
¥Release contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia;
¥Mobilise joints;
¥Improve circulation;
¥Improve respiratory capacity;
¥Improve coordination;
¥Reduce rigidity;
¥Improve balance;
¥Promote relaxation;
¥Improve muscle strength;
¥Improve exercise performance and functional capacity (endurance)

The last 2 goals mirror an individual's overall physical fitness, a state characterised by good muscle strength combined with good endurance. The final goal of rehabilitation is to achieve (when possible) an optimal level of physical fitness by the end of the exercise therapy regimen, irrespective of the initial types of exercise required to remedy an injured persons specific condition. The content we will cover has been devised to ensure a quick return to fitness following the most common injuries and covers ankle, knee, hip, shoulder and back exercises.

Preventing injuries at all costs
Most sporting injuries occur to ligaments, tendons and muscles, with only about 5% of sports injuries involving broken bones. Most frequent sports injuries are sprains (injuries to ligaments) and strains (injuries to muscles) caused when an abnormal stress is placed on tendons, joints, bones and muscle.

Ways to reduce injury:

¥Wear the right equipment - Comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear;
¥Increase flexibility - Stretching exercises before and after exercise;
¥Strengthen muscles – Adding resistance exercises to your workouts;
¥Use the correct technique- This should be reinforced during the initial stages;
¥Take breaks – Certain rest periods can reduce injuries and prevent heat illness;
¥Stop your workout - If there is sharp pain or a pain that is getting worse with your activity.
¥Avoid heat injury - By drinking plenty of fluids before, during and after exercise. Decrease or stop during high heat/humidity periods and prevent heat injury by wearing lighter clothing.

Rehabilitation & Fitness
Even though I was previously an exercise rehabilitation therapist who has worked alongside physiotherapists, it can never prepare you enough for rehabilitating yourself after an injury or operation. Having had a rest period of 3 months after my knee operation, it gave me enough time to work on my own program related to exercise therapy. This program gave me a platform to work from in order to put together a book which can be found here:

Exercise therapy plays an important role in the rehabilitation of sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems. Although most exercise therapy rehabilitation takes place in the gym, home exercises are also vital to ensure the success of a rehabilitation program -also outdoor rehab is required if your sport is played outside.

    Do you have a training personality?

    Do you have a training personality?

    Do you have a training personality?

    Vanessa M. Kercher, Ph.D., SSC, M.Ed., BESS, Sep 16, 2019 wrote a great paper on this called -What’s your training personality? i summarise this in this podcast.

    She summarised how experience and exercise beliefs can all influence training styles, by looking at the September-October 2019 issue of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal where Patrick Freeman described the six different training styles.

    I personally recognise some of these styles in my own sessions – do you?
    What happens when goals and needs require addressing:

    Injury occurs?

    You stop progressing?

    Ready for change?

    Keep your training style in an ideal state by focusing on these four key areas when working with clients.

    1. Goals - Creating a framework that fits your goals – realistic? Achievable? current ability, potential capability. Likes, Dislikes – comfort zone
    2. Safety - Do you take safety of your sessions into consideration? – ability level
    3. Training IQ: Are you training at or above your level? Maintaining your current level -ISQ - consistency in your – comfort-zone? trg preparing for something? Competitive in nature?
    4. Satisfaction- What is going to keep you on track - belief? Do you trust in your goals, aspirations? PT-nutritionist -wt loss coach etc. Do you need external support?

    Do you do HIIT for fitness, health or just quicker results?

    Do you do HIIT for fitness, health or just quicker results?

    Do you do HIIT for fitness, health or just quicker results? | LAMBERT ON: Your fitness journey

    The basic structure of HIIT – short periods of high intensity exercise alternating with usually longer but still brief periods of lower intensity exercise.
    HIIT has been a common component of exercise regimens for many generations. It is designed to:

    · improve fitness and

    · performance.

    The format of HIIT can vary considerably – flexible

    Certain research has concluded that HIIT improves the following:
    Insulin sensitivity
    blood pressure, and
    body composition

    These improvements are equivalent to the improvements provided by moderate-intensity continuous training.
    Inactivity – Low intensity – mod – High

    Risks
    Current capabilities prior to starting
    Injuries -more warm-up required v Time Barriers towards PA
    Risk of injury is directly related to size of the physiologic overload i.e. the increase in volume or intensity - similarly the rates of MSK injuries are likely to be higher c/w lower intensities
    Safety – combo of poor technique at speed
    The duration/intensity of bouts of high intensity periods
    The duration/intensity of periods of recovery periods
    Similarly, the number of cycles can vary.
    Device-measured physical activity, with fit-bits-apple-watches etc
    The importance of the principles of physical activity:
    Frequency
    intensity
    Type and
    Time

    The health benefits of light intensity physical activity will be good for the majority
    Similarly, very short episodes of Med intensity PA for those gym-goers 2-3x pw..
    Continuity
    The best plans -PA or ex are the ones that people CAN and WILL continue to do over the long-term.
    When and for whom HIIT is appropriate remains to be determined.
    the HIIT population is small and selective, but there is a high level of interest
