We get it. You love running on the treadmill. You like the sweat and the stress-reducing effects it has after a long day, but repetitive movements can lead to muscle imbalances which can lead to injuries. Make sure you are incorporating a smart blend of strength training and pre-hab exercises to keep all your muscles healthy and strong. And this strategy is not just limited to runners. If you're getting carried away with bench pressing, your softball league or even your yoga practice, you may be at risk for overuse injuries.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
