MOJI: Why Stretching And Massage Are Important For Endurance Athletes

MOJI: Why Stretching And Massage Are Important For Endurance Athletes

Screen Shot 2019-02-05 at 12.36.55 PM.png

Endurance athletes who take part in marathons, triathlons or century bike rides typically have fitness goals of strength and stamina. Your body needs to be strong enough to carry you long distances, and it needs to have the proper training in order to function for extended periods of time.

Before a race it’s crucial to plan a training program to prepare, and most of this will include running or cycling through intervals of faster and slower speeds, up and down hills and longer and shorter distances. It should also include cross training with strength exercises and core workouts such as Pilates for total body training.

Another factor that should be included in a pre-race program is athletic recovery and stretching. Whether you’re a new or seasoned endurance athlete, you’ll be putting your body through more intense challenges, which is sure to leave you with sore muscles from time to time, but it can also increase your risk of injury. To prevent getting hurt and having a setback, you need to take the proper precautions, which include stretching and massage.

WHY ARE STRETCHING AND MASSAGE IMPORTANT?

The new challenges your body is facing as you push it harder can cause muscles to tighten up, which can lead to knots and trigger points. Think about it – during your run or bike ride, your muscles are constantly tightening and pumping to propel you forward, and since you’re working on endurance this is happening for long periods of time. When this happens, it’s necessary to take the time to soothe the tension and work out tense points, or your body can start to overcompensate and muscles can become imbalanced.

Stretching and massage after an exercise session can help keep your muscles from cramping up, which is helpful if you’ve added extra training days to your week. Muscle cramps that are severe could prevent you from having a successful session, or they may set you back a day or two while they subside. Common areas for cramps are calves, hamstrings, quads and feet, which are problematic for runners and cyclists.

Additionally, staying flexible and agile is another important aspect of endurance sports. You need a solid range of motion, which is improved by flexibility, and you need to be quick on your feet (or pedals). To achieve flexibility and agility, you should engage in dynamic stretching as part of your warm up (constantly moving through stretches) and static stretching during your cool down (holding the stretch for up to 30 seconds).

You can also provide a self massage to your leg, back and arm muscles to keep them loose. Whether you opt for a deep tissue or relaxation massage, it will also help you sleep better so your body can rejuvenate and lower stress levels, which may increase when you think about the upcoming race. A foot massage is especially helpful if you experience plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis, which require at least a few days of rest if they act up.

High protection, ergonomics, fantastic field of vision and a new way to study aerodynamics are the word keys that gave life to SR-GP.

Wind tunnel tested, even in the unprecedented position of the rider in turns, has led to an innovative helmet that redefines and raises the parameters for comfort, safety and aerodynamics.

SR-GP is totally new also in terms of ventilation: the outer shell has channels that provide a more effective airflow inside the helmet, and a special rear spoiler that greatly increases the aerodynamic performance and the air extraction.


SR-GP, simply a NEW SUOMY ERA.

Learn more about GPS stickers and how to apply them to your content here.  

So, while GPS Performance Stickers make it easier to add benchmarks and milestones to your experiences, our new media gallery organization makes it easier to view and edit your content. Update your app and your items will be organized by date and time.

The GoPro app update also adds some great features to the Fusion user experience including:

Hubspot Picks RINSEKIT Logo As One Of the Best

Hubspot Picks RINSEKIT Logo As One Of the Best

Written by Arek Dvornechuck

If you're a young startup just beginning to find your footing in the business world, having a quality, professional-looking logo can help you look great in front of potential investors and clearly establish what your brand stands for.

Designing a logo that is simple enough to be absorbed and understood quickly, but still conveys the many meanings a brand might depend on is not an easy task. Generating creative logo ideas can be very time-consuming.

On ABC's Shark Tank, companies only have a few minutes to pitch their business to the panel of investors, which means their logo needs to say a lot about what kind of business they are.

I've examined 96 companies from Shark Tank, Season 8 (check the full list here) and selected the best Shark Tank logos, explaining in-depth why each logo works and which design elements make it great.

The process of designing a logo requires an enormous amount of patience and an obsession with getting it right. So whether you're a designer looking for some inspiration or an entrepreneur looking for logo design ideas for your business -- you're in the right place! Check out my analysis of the logos below to inspire your own design.

From Real Run Ryan: CurrexSole Review – Insoles that are worth it!

CurrexSole Review The insoles that allow you to run free

By Ryan Light, Running/Anxiety Coach
I heard about currexSole from a running friend on twitter, I saw that they promote a insole for a “natural runner”. Interested in knowing more about how this insole allows you to “run naturally” I reached out to them to see if they would send me a few pairs to test and review. Now I must admit that since I would be classified as a “natural runner” which generally means you are a mid to forefoot striker, I was looking for a reason to give these insoles a bad review – well I can’t! After using them for about 6 weeks and putting about 150 miles  in them I have to say they are awesome! I was shocked in how they do allow me to keep and hold my form while also allowing me to feel the ground when I’m running, I have used them in various training such as tempo, intervals, and long runs. Each time they held up quite well and never lost their firmness!
Who is currexSole?
currexSole-components1.gif
currexSole is an international company primarily focused on making various insoles every kind of sports activity. I found that the company does line up to their core values of  being “ambitious, independent and effective team of sports scientists and athletes who create products that result from the very latest research findings and meet the highest requirements.”
The Science! What’s the big deal?
Studies have shown that, “Comfort plays an important role in the selection process of the best fitting running shoe (Piller, 2002). To improve wearing comfort of running shoes, the approaches of footwear accessory industry range from individually customized via “semi” customized to “one size fits all” prefabricated insoles.” Throughout this study currexSole ranked the highest in overall comfort, heel cushion, and heel fit.
What is currexSole?
currexSole as they would refer to it as being, “currexSoles are small technological powerhouses beneath your feet.” The soles are made up of a four step process, top layer is primarily where the deep heel cup is focused. The second layer is made up of breathable material that wicks away the sweat and allows airflow to get under the foot helping is keep dry. The third layer is made of a soft bendable plastic what currexSole calls “3D DAT” it’s meant to provide to provide energy return with a “spring like” action, The last layer gives you some extra cushion under the balls and heels of your feet. This is mean for those long runs in which these areas are under the most stress.
