FAQ to PT-athlete and Gladiator Jenny Pacey. From: PT magazine, Elizabeth Hughes Polar Frost: PR Coverage

Q: What are the key things to do before and alter exercise to prevent muscular injury?
A: Prior to exercise; make sure you are fully hydrated. Ensure you have around eight hours sleep the night before a hard workout (lack of sleep increases injury risk) and you have had a light snack so you are more energized. Just before your workout make sure you completely warm up with active stretches and joint mobility.
After a workout you can continue to help prevent injuries through stretching. Drinking plenty of fluid and eating a high carbohydrate protein based snack within 30 minutes of finishing your session.

Q: What should you do 10 minutes, one hour and one day after sustaining a muscular injury?
A: At 10 minutes. Remember ACE. So assess the injury. Compress the area to restrictive bleeding and elevate the limb.
At one hour. Remember RICE. Rest is crucial. Then Ice or cool the area to reduce inflammation. Next is compression and elevation – raise the affected area above the heart and compress with a bandage or fabric strip.
After one day. Treatment depends on the severity of the injury and where it is. My main advice would be to be careful of stretching too soon. In almost all cases, avoid massaging and stretching for three to five days after the injury occurred.

Q: In your opinion what are the best treatments for a muscular injury?
A: Immediate compression to restrict bleeding is crucial and continued icing/cooling is the best way to speed up the healing process. Often icing can be tricky if you aren‘t at home so you can substitute an icepack.
Solution: with a cooling gel such as Polar Frost it‘s a mess free way of keeping the affected area cool.

Q: Have you ever had a muscular injury? How did it affect your exercise regime?
A: I have competed on the world stage for over a decade in athletics and bobsleigh and thankfully. I remained relatively injury free. I trained smart rather than hard; made sure I had enough sleep and listened to my body. My worst injury through long jump training was a pulled glute, which required ice and rest.

Q: What key things can people do when getting back into exercise following an injury?
A: Depending on their injury. I would suggest they begin by improving their mobility, flexibility, strength and agility. A sport specific program can help – for example an injured runner might start running training on a mini trampoline to reduce impact and develop stability. Having regular massage to remove scar tissue is a simple step and can be a great help too.
Include a rehab program within your workouts to build mobility, strength and flexibility in a certain area. For instance, an injured tennis player can strengthen their shoulder through rotator cuff exercises with thera-or polar elastic bands.

Q: What are your top three pieces of advice for people looking to get fit and start exercising?
A: 1. Work out with a long-term goal in mind. Your health is with you for the rest of your life so think of it as maintenance. Rather than just view fitness as a short term intervention. Try changing your goal from trying to lose two dress sizes to becoming the person who never misses a workout. The person who is never put off running by the rain, and who always makes it out of bed to work out.
A: 2. Results are about consistency and variety. Stop treating exercise as something you do when it’s convenient and start setting a weekly schedule to follow. When you have a schedule for your training you have a way of pulling yourself back on track as quickly as possible. Let your schedule not kill your motivation; do your workout each day.
A: 3. Great exercises = great results. There is a simple rule that will always guide you toward the best exercises: the more an exercise makes you move. The bigger the benefits it will deliver. Exercises that force your body to move the most (and the quickest) are often the best for calorie burn and muscle toning. Start with these and as you start to see results. Include some all over body exercises in your weekly workouts such as squats, deadlifts, sprints, bench press, clean and jerk, push-ups,
pull-ups, boxing, swimming uphill power walking and wall climbing.

Q: ‘What are the key signs you’re working out too much before exercise starts taking its toll on your body?’
A: Key signs that you’re pushing yourself too hard include feeling constantly tired and fatigued rather than energized, finding yourself unable to sleep at night and experiencing continuous muscle or joint aches and pains due to a build-up of cortisol in these areas. Becoming ill regularly means your immune system has been compromised due to this tiredness so this could also be a sign too.

Q: What are your top three complaints from female clients when it comes to exercising and what advice would you give?
A: 1. Stop watching the scales. Ladies often focus on weight. They become fixated on the scales rather than gauging their progress by body fat percentage or size. A kilo of muscle acts like a little fat burning machine burning up to 73 calories a day. Also 5kg off at takes up three times as much space as 5kg of muscle. Increasing your muscle mass may increase your weight but will also increase your metabolism while making you look slimmer and more toned.
A: 2. DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). When my female clients start training they all complain about the post workout aches and pains especially when trying to wear heels or walk down the stairs. This is a sign your body is adapting and changing as the muscle fibers break down during workouts and repair afterwards.
A: 3. Embrace the weights. A lot of women shy away from weight training worried they will develop too much muscle. The reality is most women do not have enough natural testosterone to develop excessive muscle. So get over the fear of using weight machines in the gym, because resistance training benefits include increased calorie burn for 48 hours. Gorgeous glutes, lean legs, toned arms.
Fast results and increased growth hormone which is key for anti-aging and fat burning.
