  4. How to Become a Hip Hero - And why you should!

    How to Become a Hip Hero - And why you should! The most fun part about running is, well, running. When you’re crunched for time, exhausted after a long day at work or from chasing after small children, the last thing you probably want to do is banal physical therapy exercises to prevent some mysterious injury that may or may not pop up on the future. The bad news: those banal exercises are worth it. Knee injuries bite just when you are least expecting them. The good news: these exercises require no equipment, take less than five minutes, and you only need to do them two or three times a week. The even better news: not only will these simple (and kind of fun!) exercises prevent all types of injuries, from knee to glute to IT band issues, they will also make you a more efficient, economical, and explosive (read: faster!) runner.

  5. Breathing While Running | A step-by-step guide

    Breathing While Running | A step-by-step guide Breathing while running is easy. Step 1: Breathe in. Step 2: Breathe out. Step 3: Repeat until you reach the finish line… Just kidding, there’s a little more to it than that. We asked sports scientist Benjamin Garcia to go into into more detail. Let’s take a deep breath and dive right in. We take approximately 23,000 breaths a day and 8,400,000 breaths in a year, and we do it automatically without being aware of it. The physiological process of breathing is responsible for taking oxygen from the atmosphere for our bodies to utilize. The human body uses this oxygen for cellular respiration, among other things, and expels carbon dioxide as a by-product. Read more...
  6. How to Fuel for Any Race and Any Day

    How to Fuel for Any Race and Any Day Runners tend to freak out over what to eat before a race. And seemingly rightfully so. What you eat before a race can make or break your performance. No matter how diligent you’ve been with rising for painfully early morning runs, getting out the door after a long day at work, getting sufficient sleep, and hitting up strength training (including your hip exercises!), you can throw all of that hard work and progress out the window by being improperly fueled.

  7. Body Awareness | Anatomy

    Body Awareness | Anatomy It's Your Body - Let's Understand It. The first step in taking care of your body, so that it functions, performs and feels the way you want, is to understand it. The human body has 206 bones, more than 300 joints and approximately 650 muscles, all of which are designed to work interdependently in order to function and move efficiently as a whole. If any one thing is not operating properly, the entire body can be affected. If the skeletal structure is out of alignment, or the soft tissue is unable to obtain a continuous supply of fresh oxygen, blood and fluids, a host of health issues, including pain, can result. The good news is, the body can heal. It can be restored. The body can sustain, adapt, and rebuild. It can also be maintained and conditioned in order to avoid dysfunction that causes pain.

  8. Body Awareness | Fascia

    Body Awareness | Fascia What Is Fascia And Why Is It Important? Fascia is connective tissue fibers - primarily collagen - that form sheaths or bands beneath the skin to attach, stabilize, enclose, and separate muscles and internal organs. Fasciae are similar to ligaments and tendons as they are largely made up of collagen. They differ in their location and function, though. Ligaments join one bone to another bone, while tendons join muscle to bone and fasciae surrounds muscles and other structures. Fascia forms a whole-body, continuous three-dimensional matrix of structural support around our organs, muscles, joints, bones and nerve fibers. Fascia is directly related to movement, as it helps to support the muscles by transmitting force throughout the body. The fascial arrangement, similar to a spider web, also allows us to move in multiple directions. Read more...
  9. Body Awareness | Movement

    Body Awareness | Movement When trying to maintain mobility or avoid injury it is important to be aware of how the body moves. The body functions as an interconnected unit. Many bones, joints, muscles and tissues work together just to do a basic squat, or reach to answer the phone, or type on a computer. Each part affects the other parts, and it’s important to recognize that addressing the entire biomechanical chain, rather than just one problem area, is the key. Here are some basics regarding human movement, and the way we address it. Read more...
  10. Body Awareness | Dysfunction

    Body Awareness | Dysfunction What Are Trigger Points? And Why Do They Occur? If one part of your body is not performing at its optimal level, other areas of the body will compensate. Eventually, these other areas can be compromised as well. Over time, this leads to injury. Muscles that have Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) have been found to decrease range of motion because of pain. The muscle can fatigue more rapidly as well. But why? Read more...
