A great stretch to open the chest

Sep 16, 2019
 

This simple stretch can be done anywhere - even in the Sacred Valley , Peru!! 

It is great to open the chest and help to reverse the desk posture. It is great to do before you swim, play golf or hit a ball as the increased range of motion will enable increased reach and therefore increased power generation. 

I would thoroughly recommend doing this stretch at work if you are hunched over in front of a computer. Try to do it every hour and you'll be able to  sit straighter with your shoulders back and down and as a result your aches and pains in your neck and shoulders will decrease, body will thank you!!

TIP: to get the best stretch through your chest make sure to keep your ribs down (don't let your back go into an arch) as you lift your arms

IS POOR FORM YOUR CRYPTONITE?

IS POOR FORM YOUR CRYPTONITE?

“I have put a lot of effort into my endurance, but not into correct form. I feel that I am wasting energy”

Triathletes are time poor. As they become more serious about their performance, they look for ways to improve their power and speed. This will usually involve increasing the frequency and distance of their sessions. Initially, increasing the volume will correlate to increases in performance as their cardiovasular and muscle strength improves. However, they will eventually reach a point of dimishing returns, and if overtraining occurs it can actually have a negative impact on performance.

 So, if training volume is no longer providing the improvements required, where can an athlete go to get that extra increase in performance? The answer is that they need to look at improving their technique.

This may seem obvious but for many, learning to swim, ride and run was something that happened when they were young children, and riding...

SOMETHING NEW FROM JESS

Apr 10, 2019
 

Jess Knight takes us through week 1 of her Pilates For Sports journey. 

This was so different to anything I had done  before. I had to really concentrate on  engaging my powerhouse correctly and keeping it engaged throughout the exercises - it didn't all just happen naturally. However,  I could see how this was going to help me in a number of ways.

  • it would make me stronger across all three disciplines in triathlon
  • would also help me to maintain good posture in my day to day job as a hairdresser
  • and would also help to prevent injury when training and racing. 

Jess heads off to Kona later in the year, competing in the Ironman event for the first time.
