I've had an abundance of injuries from the gym over the last couple of years despite having spent an awful lot of money on physio sessions and personal trainers... a lot of these injuries were my own fault but a number of them were down to bad advice that I was given.
I am currently juggling an aggravated lower hamstring tendon in my left leg, tendonitis in my right tricep and impingement in my right shoulder. None of these injuries are severe but they're being very stubborn and struggling to go away despite my efforts.
I am thinking I am gonna have to give the gym a miss for a while, a decision that has taken a long time for me to make.
Whilst I plan to focus mostly on a more functional / rehabilitation routine I'd also like to take up some other physical activity to stop me going crazy. It would also be good if it was something that could help my joints in some way.
I've heard yoga is great for your joints, but would it be a good idea for someone in my position? Some of the poses look like they would put a lot of strain on your arms (and elbows in some cases) and also I don't think I should stretch my left hamstring too much because of my injury.
