Tim Gabbett is part of the reason terms such as “load management” and “workload management” have gained popularity in the world of sports performance and injury rehabilitation. The main objective of this course was to teach sports trainer, coaches, and physicians (orthopedists, chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers) how to help their patients and clients (primarily athletes) lessen their likelihood for injury & how to best prevent future injury when recovering from a previous injury!
He revealed research and data showing the trends in sports injuries, recovering from those injuries, and how to prevent these injuries from occurring again. One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to injury rehabilitation is avoiding activity. We tend to have the mindset that simply resting will help us heal and get us back to 100%. This is far from the truth and the research shows that you need to be stronger than you were whenever you got injured in order to prevent against future injury.
However, people make a lot of mistakes by simply just trying to get strong. Well timed hard workouts, biomechanics, nutrition, and sleep play a large role in recovering from injury and preventing future injury. This course taught us how to train our athletes hard, to train smart, to recover hard, and make the most of your workouts!
