Webinar: Strength Training and Injury Prevention for Female Endurance Athletes
Topic: Strength Training and Injury Prevention for Female Endurance Athletes
Repetitive moments in the same plane of motion can cause muscular imbalances that lead to overuse injuries. Furthermore, females have anatomical differences that make them more prone to specific injuries than males.
This online webinar is designed to help coaches, female triathletes and other female endurance athletes understand causes of common endurance sports injuries and provide practical exercises to help prevent these injuries. This webinar is targeted to empower the female endurance sports athlete and the coaches who support them by improving performance and staying injury-free.
In this webinar, you will gain:
- An overview of how muscles function and strengthen and the myth that strength training will cause females to get too big
- Understanding of why injuries are common and what the typical causes are
- A review of proper exercise technique
- Specific exercises that require minimal equipment to address weak areas prior to injury
