This week about coach`s obssesion with resistance bands and their effect on (non) prevention of shoulder injuries. maksfitblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/05/5-resistance-band-training-is-the-best-shoulder-injury-prevention-method/ "Now, returning to the resistance band excercises. Are they really comparable with the aformentioned excercises? Is the range of motion really challenged? Does the core need to significantly participate in movement? I am paddling for a long time, without any shoulder injury problems and i pick up a resistance band three times a year. The alternative excercises are just so much better and more effective. But you might break some sweat doing them"
New blog post @ https://maksfitblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/29/busting-10-myths-of-strength-training-in-kayak-myth-3-and-4-too-specific-resistance-training-or-not-specific-enough/ Talking about too specific resistance training. And the one not specific enough. Excerpt from the post: "If you go too specific, you are severly limiting yourself when it comes to specific skill level. Do not worry about trying to recreate your sport in your resistance training. Get strong and hone your specific skills separately, but at the same time." Feedback appreciated :)

Joint pain is one of the most common injuries athletes experience. Most athletes get used to the pain and battle it many different ways.
