We know that within all the sports that are practiced in the world, one of the most latent risks is injuries. Petanque is not a game that is exempt from this problem.
From shoulder and back injuries, to knee or ankle problems. Petanque is a sport that demands the best of us, both physically and mentally. Not only must we concentrate to throw the ball to the exact point we want, but we must prepare to learn how to throw the ball.
That is why here are some tips that could help you to reach your best performance as petanque athletes:
1 HOT WELL
Many will think that because petanque does not run or does not see heavy physical activity, they do not have to warm up, but be very careful! It is very important to warm the arms and wrists, mainly. Stretching in circles with your arms and bending them behind the head will help you warm up properly and prevent the weight of the balls along with the throwing movement from getting hurt.
It is also wise to warm legs, hips, knees, neck and feet. We have to remember that petanque is a sport and should be practiced with the same seriousness as any other game.
2 USE ACCESSORIES
Just the world of petanque takes into account the issue of avoiding injuries. That is why the big brands, including OBUT, care about players and invent accessories that help us prevent injuries. One of them and the most important would be the magnetic lifter.
It is a cloth tape with a magnet on the tip, which has the function of preventing us from crouching at the time of collecting the balls. Thus we avoid hip, knee injuries and our game becomes more dynamic.
3 TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOVEMENTS
By saying this, we mean that we have to learn to play. To correctly use the positions and understand that not because the ball has a certain weight, we have to throw the balls strong. That is why it is good to look at the great petanque players and see their technique. CAREFUL WHEN MAKING BRUSH MOVEMENTS WHEN SHOOTING. Sometimes, the lack of knowledge of the sport and its way of playing it can cause us injuries.
With these 3 tips we are sure that you can enjoy this beautiful game and fall in love with it, just as we have done.
