Strength training for injury prevention/treatment

I've been quiet on my recent Monday and Thursday blog posts recently. Let's call it a late summer break so we could all enjoy some free time. Here's a short one to begin getting back on schedule.

Anyone who has received my advice or been closely following my blogging recently knows that I'm a big fan of treating and preventing injuries using a multi-faceted approach. Specifically, I think both strength training and flexibility/mobility training need to be considered. It used to be that everything was about flexibility. Get your soft tissues loose so they can pass through a full range of motion and they won't be so tender. That makes total sense but here's another thought: make your soft tissues stronger and they will be less susceptible to breaking down. Make sense?

It works for the IT band.

It works for PF.
