Hey everyone, i know there's a lot of impact on your joints during sprinting so this obviously increases your chance of injury, so how do you go about preventing it?
I know of course warm up, maybe some dynamic stretching movements along with running for 5-10mins to warm up, but i still feel there's a lot of stress on the joints even if it's 50 yard dashing.
Hill sprints, are these less impacting on the joints?
What im getting at is there's always going to be a situation when you just have to run your heart out even if it's for short or long distance without having the chance to prepare for it. A good example would be a fireman running into a building, or a policeman chasing a criminal, having to sprint full whack for as long as they can in order to get to the goal in time, even earlier when i was chasing my dog, nothing serious lol, but what im trying to get at is you can't always rely on a warm up before hand, so how do you go about preventing injury?
