How do you BOSU?

April 9, 2008

The best thing about the BOSU Balance Trainer, besides its versatility, is that it adds fun to your usual workouts. Use it in place of your step for aerobic workouts (very tough) and while doing some traditional yoga poses, like warrior and triangle. It makes the workouts challenging and interesting.

Using the Bosu Balance Trainer can help improve:

Balance Because the BOSU Balance Trainer is never stable, you’re constantly engaging the small stabilizer muscles in the upper and lower body to keep you in place.

Kinesthetic awareness This is just a fancy word for your awareness of how the body is positioned at any given moment. This awareness is something that often declines as we age, so the Balance Trainer can help you stay connected with how your body moves.

Proprioception This is another fancy word describing how your body responds to external forces to keep your joints in the right position. When you stand on a Balance Trainer, all of your muscles are forced to contract to keep your joints in proper position. This helps make normal activities easier.

The Knuckle Baller Sports Massager

January 22, 2008

The Knuckle Baller Sports Massager The “Omni Directional Ball” is the key to the Superior Function and ease of use that you will enjoy with your Knuckle-Baller. The Knuckle-Baller takes the POWER of the Omni Directional Massage Ball to a whole new level.You can begin by applying pressure on the roller and then gently roll the ball in circular motions around the lower back. While moving it in circular motion, you can apply the necessary pressure. Once you are able to identify the spot from where the pain is originating, you can continue to massage the affected area for 10-20 minutes. The massage roller will, thus, provide you relief as it soothes and loosens the muscle tissue or ligaments. It will also gradually increase your blood circulation, leading to the healing of the affected area and elimination of the back pain.

Massage Techniques
The Knuckle-Baller is an outstanding aid in the application of many techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Trigger Point, Reflexology and Cellulite Reduction.

Relief and Flexibility
The Knuckle-Baller can provide much needed massage relief for sore aching muscles, stimulate blood flow and reduce pain and swelling, thereby promoting healing and flexibility.

Versatile, Yet Easy to Use
The Knuckle-Baller will provide you a range of massage applications and techniques.

Reclined Hamstring Stretch

January 13, 2008

The hamstring stretches done while lying on the back are gentler and place less stress on the back than those done while sitting. Depending on a person’s specific medical condition and level of pain, the lying down position may be preferable and comfortable. In particular, a person with low back pain should choose whichever position is most tolerable for their back while still giving a gentle stretch.
