working capacity, elite athletes, recovery, pre-start preparation, precompetitive preparation, injury prevention, training and extra-training means


Competitions in sports of higher achievements are safe if a number of conditions are observed in the process of training activities, precompetition and pre-start preparation. The high intensity and load in modern sports requires adaptation to them at the initial stage of training athletes, which is not always possible for coaches to do in the absence of a specially organized recovery process and programs for the prevention of injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, the number of injuries in adult and children's sports is not decreasing. Existing external and internal injury risk factors require special attention from the administration of sports schools and clubs, coaching staff to training and competition venues, as well as to the selection and application of special means of injury prevention for athletes. Injuries received by an athlete in the process of training or competitive activities require the presence of appropriate training of trainers in first aid.
