Boost your fitness level by increasing the intensity of your workouts! Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone triggers the release of biochemicals in the body that result in stronger muscles and increased fat burning.

Intense exercise triggers changes in the body and muscles that moderate physical activity doesn't match, according to a new study by the Scripps Research Institute in Florida. A class of biochemicals called catecholamines, such as adrenaline, are released only when the intensity of the exercise pushes you out of your comfort zone. The release of these catecholamines sets off a sequence of events in the body that result in tighter, stronger muscles and more efficient fat burning.

Continually push yourself to gain the greatest benefits from your workouts!

Plantar Fasciitis is no fun. The excruciating pain can halt workouts and keep you out of your favorite shoes for days. It is caused by an imbalance in the strength of the foot muscles and overloaded attachments of the fascia. Fortunately, a breadth of research exists on effective techniques for treating Plantar Faciitis.

The Plantar Fascia, a connective tissue spanning the sole of the foot,  works to passively store and return energy as you step. When this fascia is overloaded, an important muscle in the foot (flexor digitorum brevis, or FDB) flexes to take the tension away. A weak FDB does not have enough strength to adequately relieve the pressure from the plantar fascia. The increased tension overloads the attachments of the fascia and the result is Plantar Fasciitis.

Check out these new techniques for treating Plantar Faciitis recently published in Competitor Magazine:

Place a flat piece of TheraBand on the floor beneath your foot. Stabilize it with the heel and forefoot and pull the opposite end of the TheraBand to your knee, thereby lifting your toes. While maintaining tension on the TheraBand, force the toes downward (arrow). Read more here.

The stretch is held for 10 seconds and repeated 30 times per day. The plantar fascia should be lightly massaged while performing this stretch.
