High training workloads alone do not cause sports injuries: how you get there is the real issue

Gabbett, Tim J. and Hulin, Billy T. and Blanch, Peter and Whiteley, Rod (2016) High training workloads alone do not cause sports injuries: how you get there is the real issue. British Journal of Sports Medicine, 50 (8). pp. 444-445. ISSN 0306-3674

Abstract

Clinicians or strength and conditioning professionals who prescribe training workloads aim for workloads that are high enough to improve fitness (ie, performance), but not so high as to risk injury. At the extremes, no training results in an unprepared athlete, whereas an overuse injury is, by definition, an error in training prescription.
