Life of a Student Athlete: Tip of the Week

Tip: Be sure to cross train one or two days a week. Participate in another activity to avoid overuse injury and let your muscles repair.

Rest can be just as important to fitness as working out. Your body gets stronger during the rest period as it rebuilds itself from exercising, giving your muscles time to heal and also reducing the risk of injury. You can practice alternating between hard and easy workouts, involving cross-training and valuing your personal time.

Life of a Student Athlete: Tip of the Week

Tip: To increase flexibility hold each stretch for at least 45 seconds

Hold each of your stretches for at least 45 seconds and repeat two to three times and remember to breathe through each.
