08/31/2015 - Amazing Calf Stretch To Relieve Tight Calf Muscles

IN: Ankle Pain, Feet, Fitness Tips, Lower Body Strength, Tennis, The Krane Training Method™, Well Wishes

share on:

I love exercises that will help the entire body… I’m talking about exercises that when you do them you feel relief right away!! There aren’t that many exercises that make people feel that way, but today I am going to show you one of my ALL-TIME favorites. 

As I mentioned last week our bodies are meant to move and when the calf muscles get tight it limits one’s ability to walk and run properly. All the time I study and watch people walk and notice that many everyday people don’t walk properly, which results in muscle imbalances and injuries.

Look no further than this amazing calf stretch! When the calf muscles are flexible and functioning properly your body will feel amazing! Check out what a recent client said about this exercise, 

“After our session, as I was walking to my car in the parking lot, I truly felt as if I could hurdle cars to get there!”

This exercise just works and I know you will love it….

Go have some fun with this exercise. . .

08/25/2015 - Get Lower Back Pain Relief NOW!

IN: Back Pain, Core Strength, The Krane Training Method™

share on:

We are all guilty of sitting with poor posture whether it is at the computer, using the IPhone, or at the office. When we sit with poor posture our spines and low backs take a beating. Our bodies are meant to move and that is why most people feel better moving rather than sitting….

Sitting for extended periods of time creates havoc in our bodies and is a big reason why so many people suffer from lower back pain. The million dollar question is how can we prevent it???

Anyone want to take a crack at it? 

The best way to prevent lower back pain is by properly performing both core strengthening exercises and back stretches. When the pelvis, core, and hip muscles are strong our bodies are feeling healthy! The exact opposite is true when exercise is neglected and this is a big reason why so many people complain of lower back pain. 

I want to give you an easy stretch that requires absolutely zero equipment. This stretch isolates the muscles and discs in the lower back and just works!!

Have a great day!

Now that we got that out of the way this week I want to share an easy exercise that targets the glutes, hamstrings, and calves. Do you have any idea as to why I love this exercise?

This exercise just works and my clients love it! All you will need for this exercise is a resistance and here is the one I love

When doing this exercise make sure not to take too big of steps otherwise you will arch your lower back and that’s not a good thing!

08/13/2015 - Tennis Instruction To Master Low Volleys

IN: Ankle Pain, Back Pain, Fitness Tips, Knee Pain, Tennis

share on:

The modern game of tennis is a sport that requires players of all levels to have good footwork, be agile, flexible, strong and have an explosive first step. Nowadays, many more players are spending more time at the baseline hitting powerful groundstrokes than rushing to the net. There are very few professional players who serve and volley on a regular basis. Players like Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have an excellent return of serve that it makes it tougher for players to get to the net on a regular basis.

Many recreational players who play doubles have an easier time getting to the net on a regular basis. Typically what I have seen is that these recreational players have more time to get to the net, which gives them an opportunity to hit volleys from an offensive position.

In this post I am going to share some essential tips for hitting low volleys down around the feet area. One of the biggest mistakes that recreational players make is they bend at the back for their low volleys instead of bending at the knees and hips. As a result of bending improperly the body is placed in an awkward and uncomfortable, which can lead to muscle imbalances, aches and pains and injuries.

Players need to make an effort to bend at the knees and hips for low volleys, which will enable them to be balanced and in proper alignment, which will reduce overuse injuries. By bending at the hips and knees players will also be able to recover faster for the next shot.

Outlined below are sample exercises that one can do to improve their flexibility to hit low volleys from a balanced and offensive position.

Glute Stretch – Lie down on your back and cross the left leg over the right knee. When ready pull the right shin towards the chest and hold this position for 20-30 seconds on each side. Perform 2-3 sets.

 

 

Hip Flexor Stretch – Lie on your back and pull the left leg towards the chest. Keep the right leg down on the ground and hold the position for 20-30 seconds on each side. Perform 2-3 sets.

 

Knees Toward Chest – Lie down on your back and pull both knees toward the chest and hold this position for 20-30 seconds. Perform 2-3 sets.

 
   

 

 

Piriformis Stretch – Lie on your back and cross the right leg over the left knee and place a tennis ball underneath the right side. Perform 2-3 sets for 20-30 seconds on tight spots.

 

Always remember when performing these exercises to use correct technique and proper postural alignment. If you are experiencing any soreness, stiffness, and/or pain take a few days off to allow for a full recovery. If your problem persists for more than a few days I recommend seeking medical attention.

I hope you found this article useful and learned a few things to help you improve your low volleys.
