Ankle Mobility And Movement - It's Important stuff.





Ankle mobility is a crucial for success in movement for athletics and daily life. There are numerous factors that influence ankle mobility. Injuries are one of the top factors. Ankle sprains are the most common injury in sporting events. Due in part to the large number of ankle sprain injuries, ankle mobility has become a very important topic in the medical, athletic and fitness fields (Zouita, A., Majdoub, O., Ferchichi, H., Grandy, K., Dziri, C., Ben Salah, F., 2013).

I have had flat feet all of my life. I have suffered from strained leg muscles, plantar fasciitis and sprained ankles as well as numerous other injuries. Ankle mobility has been a limiting factor that I have had to battle constantly. Good shoes, arch supports, flexibility training and strength training has been the recipe that fixed my foot issues. Flexibility is my current limitation with ankle mobility and I have to address that daily. Form, technique and posture are also important when talking about ankle mobility, especially in regards to fitness and sports.


Without proper ankle mobility, stability and range of motion, a person’s ability to execute common and complex movements or exercises becomes very limited and opens the door to many possible injuries. Ankle mobility issues stem from several sources including previous ankle injuries, flexibility issues, muscular imbalances, postural deficiencies and genetic defects (Sharma, N., Sharma, A., Sandhu, J., 2011).

Poor ankle mobility can have an impact on the entire body as well. The entire kinetic chain can be influenced by limitations of the ankle. Overuse and compensation injuries as well as postural and muscular imbalance issues can all be affected by a lack of mobility in the ankle. The knee is especially vulnerable to impairment and injury as a result of ankle mobility issues (Ota, S., Ueda, M., Aimoto, K., Suzuki, Y., Sigward, S., 2013).
 

Assessments, flexibility training, proprioceptive training and resistance training are some of the methods that have been shown to be effective in preventing injuries and improving ankle mobility, range of motion and stability. Many people neglect ankle mobility training and develop issues as a result. By including ankle mobility training in a person’s fitness training program, injuries can be avoided and performance in both athletics and daily life activities can be improved. This would also reduce pain and discomfort and increase a person’s quality of life. Ankle mobility is a critical factor in human movement and should not be neglected (Zouita, A., Majdoub, O., Ferchichi, H., Grandy, K., Dziri, C., Ben Salah, F., 2013).

Heart Damage Resulting From Long Bouts Of Aerobic Training


Long bouts of aerobic training pose numerous health hazards to certain individuals. Some people are not affected by long aerobic sessions while others suffer all types of issues. Health hazards can range from simple strained muscles and soreness all the way to sudden cardiac death. The risk of heart damage possibly resulting in sudden cardiac death is the single most serious problem associated with performing too much aerobic training in a single bout. And while everyone may not die from long bouts of aerobic activity, there is sufficient data available to show that the possibility of heart damage to some degree is likely (Leers, M., Schepers, R., Baumgartena, R., 2006).

There are numerous studies which look at the increase in the risk and occurrence of heart and muscle damage associated with long bouts of aerobic activity. Most of these studies were centered on long distance endurance events such as marathon running. While there are many conflicting results from these studies, there is growing evidence that muscle and heart damage occurs more frequently than previously thought (Javier, V., Suárez, C., Fernández, V., Campo, D., Valdivielso, F., Ravé, J., Santos-García, D., 2011).

Many studies show that clinical markers of heart health indicate that heart damage in addition to skeletal muscle damage occurs as a result of long aerobic sessions (Leers, M., Schepers, R., Baumgartena, R., 2006). 


Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy appears to be the leading cause of death in both athletes and long distance runners. And while the number of total deaths is low, they are steadily rising as participation numbers in endurance events continue to climb. While the majority of people who participate in long bouts of aerobic training are statistically safe, the threat is very real and warrants medical clearance and follow up checks (Kim, J., Malhotra, R., Chiampas, G., D'Hemecourt, P., Troyanos, C., Cianca, J., Smith, R., Wang, T., Roberts, W., Thompson, P., M.D., Baggish, A., 2012).

Damaging the heart muscle with the possibility of death, is the single most serious problem associated with too much aerobic training in a single bout. Sudden cardiac death is becoming more prevalent, especially amongst athletes, as most sports require a high level of aerobic activity with varying intensities. It may have always been present but there is an increased awareness of sudden cardiac death now due to the obvious nature of injuries and deaths that occur in public forums with spectators and media coverage. 

Cardiac screening is becoming more common due to the realized risks involved with long or intense bouts of aerobic activity. It is now recommended that everyone receive a cardiac screening prior to engaging in sports or other demanding aerobic training (Harmon, K., Asif, I., Klossner, D., Drezner, J., 2011).

Vegan, Paleo, Juicing - Which diet is best?


Vegan, Paleo, Juicing - Which diet is best?

So let's talk about the popular fad diets that are out there for a minute. There are too many to mention but 3 big ones are vegan or vegetarian, paleo and juicing. Which one is best?

They all claim to be the best. I won't argue the pros and cons of each. I have my opinions on each and personal experiences with my own trials of each and from seeing various clients try each one out.

Here is the bottom line - I don't approve of the term diet. You have to follow a feeding protocol that you actually like and will follow consistently - long term. That is different for each person.

In the end, you must eat the right amount (calories) of the right stuff (macronutrient ratio) at the right time (meal timing) to receive optimal results for your given goal. You can do that while following any feeding protocol regardless of what title or name it has.

My nutrition program that I teach can fit any titled feeding protocol. I have had numerous clients who were vegan, paleo, juicers, raw, vegetarian - you name it. I taught them all how to manipulate the variables to receive optimal benefits and results. The question is always - are you going to actually do what is required to achieve your goals - most people don't.

So the answer is- there is no best diet. The best diet is the one you follow consistently and get results from in the long term. As long as you are getting in the right amount of calories with the proper macronutrient ratio and you are getting in the optimal water, vitamins and minerals and you are getting results long term, it doesn't matter what you call it, what style or name it has. If it works for you then roll with it. Your mission is to figure that out and to do it. If you need help, I'm here for you. Good luck.
