Hi Dr. Khademi here — remember to drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and stretch daily.
We all love traveling but one of the drawbacks of traveling is the journey to get wherever you are going. Transit times are long and more often than not the first day of individuals trips are shot because of wait times, long flights, longer train rides etc. How would you like to change this and make your transit time and travel both enjoyable and beneficial to your health? You should set aside 15-20 minutes during your journey to find a place to stretch your muscles and take a few deep breaths. The benefit of this is you are keeping your body loose and your mind clear and ultimately being productive while traveling.
Our IsoStrength stretch devices are a perfect marriage for all individuals who are traveling. The portability of our devices, such as the Lite and Travel device (www.isostrength.com), allow you to go to the back of the airplane or the common area in a train to stretch out your tight muscles. Additionally, when on road trips, when you stop at a gas station to refill your water or fill up your tank you can use your car as a base to stretch your tight hamstrings or calves.
In the end, taking the brief time required to stretch the body while on the move will allow you to be pain free and fully refreshed when you reach your destination.
Let IsoStrength be to your back what dental floss is to your teeth. Talk to you again soon.
Hi Dr. Khademi here, remember to drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and stretch daily.
The average person spends a little bit of time before and after exercise to stretch their muscles. Although there is nothing wrong with that, there is a better way of looking at stretching that will make it more effective so that it takes on its own identity apart from exercise and increases the overall benefit to your health.
Let’s consider a new paradigm…..Stretching should stand alone. You should practice it on a daily basis, before breakfast, during lunch or before bed, however many times you would like – completely customizable. You do not need to change into your gym clothes, just utilize one of our portable IsoStrength Stretch devices (www.isostrength.com) and adapt a routine that works for you.
You should spend 6-7 minutes targeting the muscles groups important to your performance. IF you stretch just a few minutes every day you train your muscles to be in the most natural state they can be in. In turn, they are more prepared for the competitive nature of sports and exercise and the possibility of injury greatly decreases.
I ask that you try this for a few weeks and improve your overall health and athletic ability. Stay well and I look forward to talking to you again soon.
Hi, Dr. Khademi here, remember to always drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and stretch regularly.
This past weekend I was invited to go to the New York Yacht Club invitational — a sailboat competition in Newport, Rhode Island featuring 22 of the highest rated sailing teams in the world. I had the pleasure of sharing the benefits of our IsoStrength stretching devices (www.isostrength.com) with the team from Hong Kong. While the sport of sailing was a bit of a mystery to me, I was even more unaware of the physical stress and strain the members of the team go through on a daily basis during these competitions. I had the unique opportunity to participate in practice runs on both Saturday and Sunday and was absolutely blown away at the teamwork, strategy and endurance that was displayed by all teams participating in the event. It was both amazing and extremely exciting as these races are all very close and at times dangerous with sailboats nearly colliding with one another in an effort to reach the finish line. All in all I was proud to get an up-close look at a sport which I have long been unfamiliar and also to be able to expose the importance of stretching to a new pool of athletes that I have grown to greatly admire.
Hi my name is Dr. Ehsan Khademi, a Doctor of Chiropractic and the inventor of the IsoStrength family of products. We would like to welcome you to our blog – where we hope to provide you with many tips that help improve your overall health and lifestyle. Our blog will always start with a short message reminding you to drink lots of water, breathe deeply and stretch. These three things are vitally important aspects to reduce your chances of injury and increase your health.
On a normal day, it is essential that you drink ample amounts of water. If you are under stress or participate in various exercises, you need to drink even more water than on a normal day. Some nutritional sources indicate that at the minimum you should drink half of your body weight (in pounds) in ounces per day. For example if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink a minimum of 75 ounces of water daily. Other sources say that you should drink minimum of 8-8ounce glasses of water per day.
Additionally, because of everyday stress and the hectic lifestyles many of us live, we often fail to take deep enough breaths and starve our bodies of oxygen. Simple deep breaths, a few times a day helps to alkalize the body and assists in pleasing the body providing it with sufficient oxygen to function better.
This brings us to stretching, and the solution we have for you. Our IsoStrength family of products allow you to stretch the entire body in an efficient, effective way that is not only fun, but provides a direct benefit to your overall health. Stretching has recently become the wave of the future. People are starting to realize the benefits of a few minutes of stretching a day for both injury prevention and a well- rounded daily health regimen. We highly recommend visiting our website @ www.isostrength.com for many great stretching techniques and tips.
Once again, be it traveling, working or spending time taking care of the family, it is vital that you drink sufficient water, focus on making the time to concentrate on breathing deeply and appropriately and stretch the muscles in your body to help appease both your body and mind.
