Unfortunately, this type of training can result in overuse injuries, strains, sprains and tears. More often than not, athletes suffer sports injuries due to over-training, not warming up properly, repetitive motions causing wear and tear, forceful impacts and not allowing old injuries to heal in the right manner.
