Although it is possible to perform physical exercises to be in a good shape at a general level, each sports activity requires a different physical preparation. According to discipline , the athlete must enhance their aerobic capacity, the strength of their arms, their speed, their elasticity, etc.
However, as we have mentioned before, there is the so-called general physical preparation that is very complete, which allows the individual to be in really great condition and that gives him the possibility of facing different physical challenges.
This type of preparation is worth noting that it is the basis to then carry out a more specific one for each sport or discipline and that is based on working from speed, to flexibility through strength or endurance. All this without forgetting that also helps to establish that all your muscles are perfectly balanced in terms of development.
It should also be stressed that it is important to have a good general physical preparation because it brings with it the following advantages:
-Prevents the body at the time of suffering injuries of various types and size, such as sprains, tears, overloads ...
-It becomes a great tool in that the person in question can recover faster and better from the physical efforts carried out.
- Similarly, it should be noted that this preparation is essential and necessary when the athlete can undertake the specific exercises of the discipline he practices.
