WBC Flyweight Champion, Charlie Edwards, shares his top tips on avoiding injury when you return to the gym after lockdown.

For many of us, whilst we may have been keeping up with our general fitness over lockdown, we’ve not been able to do the bag work, pads and sparring that we were doing before Covid-19. With us now seeing the start of boxing gyms opening back up, if you’re anything like me, you’re gagging to get back to your old training, but rushing back in can put you at risk of injuries.

We asked WBC Flyweight Champion Charlie Edwards to give us his top tips on keeping healthy when returning after a lay off. This is what he had to say;

  1. Foam rolling – use a foam roller before a training session to warm up and loosen the body up.
  2. Ease back in – Don’t go 110% straight away, slowly increase your running and training to gradually improve.
  3. Post training – Make sure you always warm down and take on the right nutrition after training.
  4. Prepare your kit – Before training, make sure you have all your protective kit ready and in good order.
