Hey Full Tilt,

Don’t become a sidelines only player like me and Mojo. Injury prevention is a big part of being an ultimate player. Our sport is unique in that we push our bodies extremely hard over the course of a weekend. First of all, everyone should be doing some kind of lifting. Muscle weakness is a huge reason for injury; just remember not to overdo it or else you risk an overuse injury or losing your recovery.

So please read these. I know a lot of you are borderline illiterate, but reading about these topics and focusing on them will be a lot better than getting injured.

This website rocks, especially this post.

This next link is for Danger, but you should all read it.  There are a lot more qualified people out there that say the same advice, but this guy put up youtube videos for all the streches so you can see how they are done.

Get ready for Glory Days……Yash.

    This is a link from the UPA website: http://injurytimeout.org/ . It helps you identify common ultimate injuries. It also teaches you how to prevent injury, and how to take care of your injur(y/ies).
