We’re in the midst of an unprecedented health challenge with the coronavirus, and I don’t want in any way to minimize the serious impact this is now having on individuals, families, and businesses.
But I also want to point out that amidst all the upheaval around us is an opportunity to rest, recover, and reboot. So many of our posts at Sideline Sports Doc have covered the negative effects related to year round play, overuse, and specialization. During this period of forced time off, if your life circumstances allow then take the time to get some rest, then get back in to building baseline fitness and individual skills.
I truly hope each of you make it through this period safely, and when you get back to your normal sport and fitness activity perhaps your body will actually be better off.
