Stretching, Strengthening and Resistance Bands
Posted by ChrisK - 04/01/11 05:15PM - 0 Comments - General Fitness, Health - 1/52/53/54/55/5

 

 

My name is Chris Kelly. I am a nationally certified medical massage therapist.  Last year I started having some low back pain, a new experience for me.  I stretched and stretched and did my warm ups and regular exercises but my back still continued to hurt.  Determined to get to the root of the problem on my own I started to think about what I would tell my clients.  It was then that I realized what I was missing.

One of the physiological concepts I use with my clients is the idea of antagonism.  Muscles work with and opposite each other.  An example is how your bicep flexes your arm at the elbow and yo

Image

ur triceps extends the arm at the elbow.  If one is compromised it will affect the other.  With this theory in mind I thought about my own dilemma.  What is the antagonistic muscle group to my low back?  The abdominals!  Oh joy, my favorite.  Since my back was hurting and tight and all I had been doing was stretching it out I decided to do a 6 week intensive focused on making my abdominals stronger.  I used a boxing workout video centered on abs/core and the result was that in about 4 weeks I felt no back pain anymore.  Pretty sweet.

I decided to take this idea to the next level and apply it to my whole body.  Now I have a very busy massage practice and a one year old at home so joining a gym was really not in the cards.  I didn’t want a bunch of equipment cluttering up my house waiting for the next yard sale either so I did some research.  What I found was Aylio Resistance Bands. They were very affordable and all of the equipment fits into a bag that could be hung on a wall hook.

Basically you get 4 or 5 bands ranging from 7-40 lbs. a piece.  They can be used individually or clipped together for customizing the weight.  Along with the bands the kit comes with handles, ankle straps, an anchor that fits in a door or under anything heavy enough to support the weight and an instructional booklet that covers 101 exercises for the entire body.  There are plenty of videos on YouTube that show the exercises in motion also.

Since I started using the resistance bands 4 months ago I can safely say that I am hooked on them.  I assessed the weakest muscles in my body and used the resistance bands to strengthen both the affected muscle or muscle group and it’s antagonistic muscle or muscle group. They work as well as any gym apparatus I’ve ever used and they can be taken anywhere.  I mostly use them at home but I’ve taken them on vacation and to work as w

 

ell.  My body feels strong and balanced.  I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for  a good quality and adaptable home gym.

The New Ride: 2010 SuperiorLite SL Club
Posted by Kevin - 03/23/11 01:30PM - 0 Comments - Cycling - 1/52/53/54/55/5

As of March 17th, I became the proud new owner of a SuperiorLite Bike full carbon road racing bicycle.  This bike was ordered to fulfill the needs of my 2011 USAC road racing season as well as replace my Allez on many of the larger group, event and charity rides.

First, the company.  SuperiorLite Bikes is a fairly local (Pennsylvania) based full carbon bicycle manufacturer.  All of the actual carbon lay is done in Taiwan, but all other aspects of the company, including design, engineering, testing, product marketing, sales and riding is all done within just a couple hours of my house.  In addition to these things, I found SuperiorLite originally through the earlier purchase of my SLite Alloy Race wheel set sometime around the new year.  Over various dealings with the owner of the company, it only makes sense for me to be riding a SuperiorLite Bike.

The bike I ordered and received was the 2010 SL Club model which was their most relaxed geometry frame at the time.  Is is not has relaxed as the SL Race of 2011, however it is every bit as comfortable and beautiful.  The 53 cm, unpainted 12k weave carbon fiber frame, is built up with Shimano 105 (5700) shifters, front and rear derailleurs, cassette and chain.  The alloy crank, bottom bracket, stem, handlebars, carbon seatpost and headset are all SuperiorLite or S-Lite competition parts and the brakes are Tektro R741 in white/red.

The wheels that came with the bike are Quasar Q2s and they weigh in just shy of 2000 grams and completely hand built.  2k grams is a little on the high side for racing wheels but equally as light for everyday training and riding.  The S-Lite Race Aluminum wheels that I will use for any kind of racing or large group rides are close to 500 grams lighter and pretty much every bit as strong as the Quasar wheels.  The Kinlin 27mm rims are laced to red EZO Japanese Precision sealed hubs with aero-bladed stainless steel spokes and matching red nipples.

The ride quality of the entire SuperiorLite lineup is absolutely incredible and this bike is no outcast in those regards.  A clear upgrade from my previous aluminum frame, the SL Club carbon frame absorbs a lot of the road vibration which was so easily felt before while transferring my power more efficiently as I pedal into the climbs and sprints.  The 2x10 gearing setup operated much smoother than my 3x8 Sora/Tiagra mix and seems to utilize all of the gears more directly.  The contour of the 105 shifters is a much needed improvement over the standard lever of the Sora flight deck, which allows for easy access to gear shifting up or down, both from the hoods and the drops even if your hands are small to medium sized.

As an avid cyclist and sometimes manic enthusiast, the SL Club (SL Race) is a work of art for around the $2,000 mark and rides as nice as any bike prices nearly twice that much from Trek, Giant or Specialized.  As for the stunning beauty of the bicycle, pictures can help but never really display how beautiful this bike is.  Find a reason to get out and ride this year, I know I found mine.



Spring is here!

Sunday marks the first day of spring.  And with longer days and warmer weather means outdoor plans, roadtrips and getaways.  Now is the time to plan for the activities on the horizon.  We are planning a hiking, camping and rock climbing trip for Kevin's birthday over Memorial Day Weekend so if your calendar is free mark it down and save the date.  We will also be planning other trips and outdoor adventures throughout the spring and summer.  

What activities are you looking forward to?  

My personal favorites are the beach (or the shore for us Jersey folks), outdoor games with my dog, hiking in the woods, and camping under the stars. I also tend to run outdoors more during the March-September months and always have a way of finding campfires on cold summer nights. 

Happy spring to all!
