Training with injuries: What you need to know

This is a question that can only be answered by your doctor. The answer always depends on the specific physical conditions, type of limitations or injury. For some, it is possible to exclude certain groups of muscles during training, for some Freeletics as a sport is not suitable. If you have any kind of preexisting condition (e.g. knee or back problems) or something that hurts you, don´t start with Freeletics and don´t continue your training without talking to your doctor first.

If you repeatedly get problems from your Freeletics training, make sure to execute the exercises correctly, which means exactly as described in the tutorials. Visit the movement learning section in Freeletics Gym, watch the tutorial videos in Bodyweight and Gym regularly and follow all instructions and warnings. Nevertheless, the rule applies also here: First, talk to your doctor! And refrain from replacing or exchanging exercises independently. Since Freeletics is a full body sport, certain body parts can be affected even when you think you’re training completely different parts of your body. In addition, people with physical disabilities and injuries tend to take a relieving posture, which can lead to incorrect technique and the aggravation of other areas. Therefore, even after your physician gives you an OK, visit your doctor regularly for a checkup.

**Individual results may vary. Every person has unique experiences, exercise habits, and eating preferences, and will apply the given information according to their personal situation.
