#RUNNING - ♀VIDEO problems from Achilles Tendonitis? - exercise via @SundialClinic

12:00 Great stretches for running & better movement

13:00

The Sundial Clininc supports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!
(This article is for guidance only. You should also seek medical advcie if you have concerns about injury.)

Stretching may help reduce injury and improve flexibility in runners. Most runners include stretches in their routine. It is important to prepare your muscles for a run by gently warming up and keep flexible by doing these stretches. These exercises put together by our physio can help stretch the main running muscles.

These stretches should be held for over 30 seconds – don’t rush. Aim to do these exercises once a day although doing them twice a day is three times as beneficial. Stay relaxed and breathe out as you develop the stretch. Develop the stretches gently to avoid overstretching and injuring yourself.

The 3 stretches we recommend for running are: hamstring, hip flexor and calf and here is how to do these.

You can download the stretches for running for free here VBHM stretches

Hamstring stretch

Dynamic hamstring stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • straighten one leg, grabbed the back of your thigh and target your leg towards your chest until you feel a gentle stretch.
  • Bend your leg at the knee slightly coming off the stretch
  • repeat by pushing your heel towards the ceiling
  • alternate your legs

Note: avoid kicking violently or arching your lower back

If it’s shaking your doing it well!

Hip flexor stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • hands on hips, tuck your tailbone under to flat on your back
  • lean forwards while maintaining a straight posture and keeping your head up
  • avoid arching your low back or letting your hips roll forwards

Note: do it next to a wall if you feel out of balance

Calf stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • have front toes and knee touching the wall

#SundayFEATURE - #LikeAGirl @lgreen66

11:00 - Always #LikeAGirl

12:00

Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty's really no picnic either, it's easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl's self-confidence.
We're kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.

"In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand," said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. "When the words 'like a girl' are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine 'like a girl' into a positive affirmation."

For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls.

Soccer Grannies supports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!  WSNet works with partners to cover and promote Women's Sport worldwide

For hundreds of South African grandmothers, football has become therapy

For hundreds of South African grandmothers, football has become therapy – physical and emotional. Every week, all across the country, they turn up – aged anywhere between 55 and 84 – in groups of up to 30 for training led by volunteer coaches.

Originally started in 2003 by social worker Rebecca Ntsanwisi in Limpopo – the northernmost province of South Africa – the “Soccer Grannies” movement has spread across the country like wildfire. There are now as many as 40 informal teams being established across the country – and there has been interest from women in neighbouring countries, such as Mozambique and Zimbabwe. 

Watch the award-winning documentary on the movement, produced by the New York Film Academy (NYFA).

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

15:00 find your MoJo post pregnancy

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch;
