Ideally, paying attention to everything in this episode as injury prevention strategies will produce the best outcomes when training to elevate your performance. Listen in on this episode to understand the big picture when it comes to dealing with tendinopathies.

6 steps I covered in the episode are:
Get checked out and evaluated, from both an orthopedic and movement standpoint.
Address mobility dysfunctions.
Focus on basic strength and activation exercises.
Modify your volume with activities. Find the appropriate threshold at that point in time and gradually progress back to full participation.
