The more you run, the tighter your muscles will get, which will inhibit their function, your performance and increase the risk of injury. Therefore, it is important that we implement a variety of different strategies to prevent this, such as physiotherapy, massage and stretching.
Stretching can be performed in a variety of different ways, such as dynamic (with movement), static, ballistic or assisted via the use of a partner, bands or mobility tools such as a foam roller or lacoste ball. During this workshop we will be concentrating on a post-event static stretching routine to aid recovery, prevent injury and improve performance.
Workshop led by Adam Yearley, an experienced Personal Trainer. Adam is a qualified BSc (Hons) Sports Therapist and level 3 Personal Trainer and has over 5 years' experience in treating a wide variety of injuries through massage and exercise. His background was as a gymnast and is therefore a big believer in functional training, so will provide you with stretches and exercises to complement your massage sessions.
