This month a sports medicine doctor will discuss common injuries incurred by "weekend warriors."
If you sit at a desk all week and spend weekends going on 100-mile bike rides, doing 2-hour weight-lifting sessions, or playing 3-hour hockey games, you may be risking injury without realizing it. Dr. Valerie Rygiel explains why and provides advice for avoiding injury while engaging in your favorite cardio or strength-training activities.
