Warning: Before you try any serious lifting or traing..make sure you have a partner who knows what he or she is doing.
Female basketball players have 4 times as many knee injuries as male basketball players.
See the dilema is, girls are built different, plain and simple. Heres a few of the reasons. Email me if you want to know
more about each one..
- Femoral Notch Dimensions (bone that protects your acl..guys have a around one like in your thumb..meanwhile
girls have sharp ones which lead to acl/mcl tears)
-Limp Alignment (A womans hip joint is wider then a guys. The increased angle of a females thigh bone
places more stress on the inside of the knee which sucks when you try to jump)
-Ligament size (females ligaments arent as thick as a guys and therefore usually arnt as strong)
-Joint Laxity (this means that a females joints are looser, with more give in them...good for gymnastics,
bad for sturdiness and stability)
-Shoe-Surface Interface (Plain and simple, they dont put as much effort in making girls basketball shoes)
-Lack of Muscle strength/coordination (while in shape, most girls still arent as fits as guy basketball
players, so their body doenst hold up as well to the shock when jumping)
Now your probably thinking after all that, how in the hell do you expect me to even try and jump...lucky for you all
these can be either prevented or lower the chance of it happening.... go to the next page and we'll see if I can give you
