Top 5 tips to prevent injuries

Top S&C coach Ric Moylan explains the best strategies for preventing injuries

Stretching

1. Mobility and stretching
INCREASED range of motion, mobility and suppleness within the muscles and joints will create a far more effective boxer. More importantly a more relaxed and ‘looser’ boxer will recover quicker, therefore being able to train again. This is vital, as a boxer is often required to train more than once per day. Most importantly it is proven that increased joint and muscular mobility and flexibility will dramatically reduce the potential risk of injury. An injured fighter is not in the ring competing! A range of mobility exercises should be employed by a boxer, and many boxers are now turning towards yoga, which is an extremely positive addition to their training regime.
