Return to Sports after Summer Break
It’s time to go back to school! Back to school also means back to sports after potentially a longer break. Just 2-4 weeks off from training can lead to a state of “de-training” in terms of fitness and strength loss. There is an increased risk of acute injuries if the athlete tries to progress too quickly. As well as an increased risk of developing overuse injuries if training load is not properly regulated. Anytime you return to exercise after an extended time off, there are important things to keep in mind.

Water is one of the essential nutrients we can consume and vital to every cell in our body. The human body is made up of 60% water, with muscles up to 79% water. As you can see, hydration is essential for the human body, muscles included. As such, it is necessary to maintain proper hydration for increased muscle function and response.
