High school athletes found more vulnerable to concussions
CNN
A new study from the National Academy of Sciences finds that high school athletes remain at risk for concussions — and may be their own worst enemies. The study found that a "culture of resistance" to reporting concussions and following treatment plans could be doing more harm to the athletes.

Female athletes at risk, 'culture of resistance' keeps concussion rates high
NBC News
When it comes to concussions, cheerleading on the sidelines of a high school football game might be getting nearly as dangerous as taking the field with the team — and for young people in all sports, the risks are rising. Concussions in youth sports overall spiked 66 percent from 2001 to 2009 — with young women especially at risk — and the only way to stop the damage is to break through a "culture of resistance" from parents, coaches and young players, a comprehensive new study suggests.

Injury prevention strategies are big business in professional sports. This is due to the cost in terms of treatment and playing time lost when an injury occurs.

With this in mind, here are the top 10 commandments for preventing sports and exercise injuries.

The fundamentals of ball security
By Scoop Reed
As offensive coaches, we study turnover ratios and design plays that will keep the football in our team's possession. In my years as a player and a coach, I have had difficulty understanding that if turnover ratio is important to the offense, then why don't offenses spend more time practicing drills to protect against turnovers — specifically fumbles? Maybe we do not value possession of the football as much as we say. Ball security, like any other football skill, needs to be practiced.

4 athlete-friendly microwave meals
STACK
Greasy burgers, chicken fingers and nachos coated with a cheese-like substance are probably the first things that come to mind when we say "fast food" — and since you're an athlete and take care of your body, odds are you're not going near the stuff. But fast food doesn't have to be taboo, if you prepare it correctly. Arm yourself with a microwave and a few basic kitchen tools and you can whip up dishes loaded with the protein, carbs and healthy fats you need to keep going long after the final whistle.

13 athletes share killer workouts

Jessica Long, paralympic swimming
"My most dreaded workout is this weight set we call 30, 30, 30s. You hang from a bar and hold for 30 seconds in a knee tuck position with a 15-kilo plate in your lap. Then you go right into 30 leg raises and then hold for another 30 seconds in the knee tuck position with no plate. Do it three times through and you'll be feeling it for a week!"

Quickly build muscle for football
STACK
Football isn't just a contact sport; it is a collision sport. The impact of the hits during a football game has been compared to being in a car accident.

Here are some rules for quickly building muscle for football.
