The final week of June is upon us. Let’s end it with a great stretch called the Chair Lunge!

This stretch will work on the hip flexor muscle group that can shorten from sitting too much.

During the third camp of 2016 for the U-15 Girls’ National Team (GNT) in Portland, Oregon, I had the opportunity of working with the same coaches I worked with last spring in Carson, California. I was also able to work with some of the same players, so it was a great opportunity to see how they had improved and matured over the past year.

Stretch of the Week: Seated Piriformis Stretch

Posted on by Rachel Lackowski | Leave a Comment

Happy summer! It’s the third week of June and we are continuing our theme of chair stretches.

I hope you have been allowing yourself some time each day to take a break from sitting and stretch!

This week we will learn a seated piriformis stretch. This will target not only the piriformis, but also the gluteal and outer hip muscles, which can become tight when we sit for long periods of time. You will need a chair for this stretch, preferably one without wheels. If your chair has wheels, make sure they are locked in place.

Stretch of the Week: Chair Forward Fold

Posted on by Rachel Lackowski | Leave a Comment

Week 2 of June brings us to the Chair Forward Fold

Those of you who sit for long periods of time can end up with a tight lower back, hip, and thigh muscles. This week’s stretch will target all those areas!

If you have a history of low back conditions such as pain, bulging/herniated discs, hip problems or hamstring strains or tears, this may not be the right exercise for you. As with beginning any exercise program, it is recommended to consult with your physician, physical or occupational therapist to determine which exercises are best for you.

You will need a chair, preferably one without wheels. If your chair has wheels, make sure they are locked in place.

ACL 3P: Prevention

Posted on by Dave Heidloff | Leave a Comment

Athletes in every sport take measures to reduce their risk of getting an injury. Soccer players wear shin guards to protect their shins, weight lifters activate targeted muscles with light weights before moving onto heavier loads, and sprinters warm up their muscles by progressively increasing their speed. You didn’t need to read this blog to know any of that, but it sets up an important idea. Proper preparation can reduce the chance of an unwanted injury.
