How to Eliminate the Top Five Triathlete Training Injuries – Part 2

March 2, 2017

Wouldn’t you rather be a part of the 13% of athletes that are injury free? Back [Click Here]

Strength training without a plan is just indiscriminate training. How do you know where you are weak? And what exercises are actually eliminating injury risk not increasing it?

Strength training becomes very effective when you learn this one skill:  How to keep the spine stable when the arms and legs are moving resistance. This includes weights, resistance bands, or your body itself.

Here are some quick exercise videos that show you how to begin eliminating injuries by targeting weak and inflexible areas.

The Body Band-It design teaches your body how to stop the spine from moving when you apply loads to the arms, legs, or both, to make movement happen. The more you improve at this skill, the faster and more injury resistant you become.  And even better still, your body will work more effectively by eliminating energy leaks in the trunk as it becomes the non-moving platform for the arms and legs to work from and athletes simultaneously see significant and rapid improvement in PRs 

Work these exercises and begin to experience the results we’ve seen across triathletes, cross fit athletes, professional athletes, collegiate athletes, master’s athletes, Olympians, and national champions.

Testimonials:

 

Please do share any successes you have had on the Body Band-It. Love to share your powerful stories to help others see the power of the Body Band-It. Email me directly.

Here is a recent story about the Body Band-It directly from the Head Women’s Rowing Coach at University of Rhode Island.

 

Quote:

 

I have been using the Body Band-It™ with my team for two years.    I wanted to see if the “Body Band-It™” or weightlifting was more effective.   I had two groups throughout the winter.  One group just did the body band it and the other lifted free weights with our strength coach.     The group that did the Body Band-It™ were more efficient and always finished before the other group.    I (and the weight room group) noticed that the Body Band-It™ group’s erg scores were improving more than the weight room only group.   

 

I started to get athletes asking me if they could join the Body Band-It™ group!

I also use the body band it to help rehab injured athletes.   

  

I personally use the Body Band-It™ myself.    I noticed that I get a great work out.  Both the big and small muscle groups are used, which I never felt by doing free weights.  I also noticed that my muscles felt fatigued but not ripped or bashed up (like they felt from free weights) and I recovered much quicker from training sessions.   The Body Band-It™ also works on flexibility and full range of motion which is need in the sport of rowing.

Body Band-It New Video – Lateral Lunge Pushes & Pulls

January 7, 2017

Hi Robert
A Body Band-It – Happy New Year!
I have shot a number of new videos and will be getting them out to you. They will be hosted on my YouTube channel. Subscribe if you want to see the latest additions.

This exercise is great for working the trunk, arms, and legs in a lateral motion.

Make sure you keep the tube close to your body during the movement. If you have the version with the Concept 2 footboards make sure you are standing on the Velcro straps. With the new version you must securely stand on the L-footplate to make sure it does not slip.

In the pulling motion I have a BLUE band (this direction you will have more power), and the pushing motion where the band is attached around the footboard tube and handle I am using a RED band (this direction is more challenging).

I alternate directions doing sets or 20 to 30 reps and I usually will complete 3 to 5 sets.

Lateral Lunge Pushes & Pulls:  

I will be holding a Body Band-It class next Sunday January 15th from 1-2pm at Transcend Fitness at 591 Durham Road Newtown, PA 18940.  The session will be in the Carousel CrossFit building.

$15 if you bring your own Body Band-It

$20 if you need a Body Band-It (I only have three)

Does Your Posture Matter When Rowing?

December 16, 2016

Posture, Power, and Performance.

Video: One Leg Rowing

Rowing one leg at a time is a great way to start learning the skill of keeping the spine in a solid upright position during your rowing stroke.  I like to row with one leg at a time alternating legs every minute for about eight to 10 minutes as a warm-up and then proceed to regular rowing. Sometimes I do an entire workout alternating legs.

VIDEO

Rowing more upright is a learnable and valuable skill that not only improves flexibility and strength balance in the extremities that allows you to go faster while eliminating back stiffness and other injuries..

The rounded or C- spine position is a low skill rowing posture, and is still commonly coached, that significantly increases training related injury risk while simultaneously reducing overall rowing power.

Rowing with an upright posture is a high skill level position requiring lots of focused attention, power, and strength to maintain this superior posture.

It is not easy to go fast while remaining injury free (including back stiffness) but it’s more fun. Common rowing are not the condition of rowing but the condition of how you either control or don’t control the spine during the rowing stroke. Those who allow their spine to facilitate reach are bound to suffer and go slower, while those who master control excel!

Come join me on January 15th   2017 for a Rowing Posture Training Camp at Transcend Fitness in Newtown, PA 18940.  The class will run from 9:30am till 12:30pm?  Please email me if this might be of interest.

Body Balance Seminar Two Day Conference

December 9, 2011

Wouldn’t you love to keep your athletes out of the training room so you can sleep at night!

You can learn and master how at my upcoming Body Balance Lecture Series

Do you struggle to get your daily line-ups set each day because you have a number of injured athletes?  Unexcited to send your athletes through another round of physical therapy or the training room, or having them have to take time-off from training, again?  Are you growing frustrated that some of your top athletes never seem to make it through an entire season without injuries?  Or do you have some athletes that do not seem to be making any progress?   Put yourself in control of this situation by understanding the power of Body Balance and how it can solve these frustrating problems!

THIS PROGRAM IS IDEAL FOR COACHES AND ATHLETES!  REGISTER NOW!

FREE TRAINING

Make sure you check out some upcoming FREE training tips that I will be releasing over the next several weeks.  These powerful tips will start your athletes doing some key corrective Body Balance exercises that can begin to help put them back on the road to musculoskeletal  balance, whether they are injured or not!!  If you are not on my email list please contact me at coachkaehler@gmail.com ?

BODY BALANCE  

PUTS YOUR ATHLETE’S BODIES ON AUTO-PILOT

 SO THEY CAN TRAIN AT PEAK PERFORMANCE WITHOUT THE WORRY OF INURY OR MISSING PRACTICE!

MASTERY

Wouldn’t you like to know that you can train your athletes at a high level without the concern that they will break down and have to spend more time in the training room than with the team?  Do you dream of getting through an entire season without any of your athletes getting injured?  Are you tired of hearing that little voice in your head saying I hope everyone makes it through today’s session without getting injured?  While you have good grasp on how to plan the appropriate amount of training volume and intensity you are constantly wondering why some athletes can make it through while others cannot.  You have theories of why but are not really sure they are valid.  By learning the key elements of Body Balance in this lecture series you will now control your athlete’s destiny.   Without considering this key element your training programs will always give inconsistent results and some athletes spending more time in the training room than at practice.

If you’d like to take complete control over your training program design and how you can help them better handle the stresses of your training program, then keep reading.

Helping your athletes reach their peak potential is why you coach and having them be able to handle the stresses of training that are required to succeed is FUN if it can be done without the recurring injury problem!  Maybe you are one of the few coaches that have few injuries (5% or less of your athletes) but more than likely that is not the case.  Or maybe you had one of those seasons several years ago where everyone made it through and that was a great experience but it has not happened since.  Wouldn’t you like to experience that every year!  Or maybe you feel like some of your athletes seem to be stuck and not making progress or are actually getting slower.   You’re still not where you want to be, you’ve read all the magazine articles and go to the conventions every year but just get a gloss-over on a bunch of different topics and you are still searching to understand because you cannot shake the injury bug or help the athlete who gets stuck.

Do not rely on your strength staff to understand the real nuisances of rowing, as they tend to focus on the four-second sports (football, basketball, baseball, hockey).

You see, the real success to having your athletes train pain-free and with more power and strength are by mastering and applying the secrets of Body Balance.  Musculoskeletal Body Balance is not addressed if you current strength and conditioning program focuses mainly on strengthening the primary boat moving muscles in the rowing stroke.

Whether this is your first or fiftieth year coaching, understanding and working with your athletes on the key elements of musculoskeletal Body Balance is critical for a fast, powerful, and injury-free body.  While there is no 100% success with any training, incorporating the powerful Body Balance process to your current training program will significantly reduce injuries and will also make your athletes stronger and faster.

MORE INFORMATION

 

Are you struggling to get your 2k erg score lower?  Unexcited about having to go through the another long season of training not knowing if using the same training system  will give you the improvement you need?  The fact is college rowing coaches use the 2k as the door opener, it has become the SAT of rowing.   See how my 84-Day Erg Training Program will:

“PUT YOUR TRAINING ON AUTO-PILOT SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON YOUR ACADEMICS, FAMILY, and FRIENDS!”

Would like to improve your 2k erg by 10-to-20 seconds or more, while still being able to manage the rest of your life?  If you would like to have complete control and confidence in your 2k erg training program this winter, please keep reading.

Getting maximum improvement out of your training is easy if you have a comprehensive plan that covers the main areas that will lead to success on the ergometer.  Maybe it’s been a while since you felt strong on the erg.  Or, you may be in that happy minority that has done well on your 2k erg score, but still you are not where you want to be.   Most erg programs are designed for group training and do not address your individual deficits.

You see, success of reaching your true potential on the erg has a lot more to do with understanding what your real deficits are as an individual athlete, and then to start correcting them, and much more than just pounding out a bunch of meters each day.  After having done over 800 of my Body Balance Evaluations on athletes at all level (Olympic Champions to Junior Rowers) I have uncovered key areas that must be addressed not only to maximize your potential on the ergometer, but also to improve rowing strength and power and also to prevent or eliminate chronic training related injuries.

KEY # 1:  BODY BALANCE EVALUATION

Each athlete will go through my Body Balance Evaluation Process

BODY BALANCE EVALUTION CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“During our first conversation with Bob, he said that he would need one assessment, and that he was convinced that she would be able to return to rowing in a certain period of time.  I was so impressed: he delivered on all his promises.   

He did identify the problem; he did it in one meeting; and she did recover in 6 weeks.  Best of all, (shortly after) Megan PR’d when she took her 2K erg test. 

-          Quote from Megan’s Father

(Megan – was in her junior season and was not able to train on the ergometer because of chronic low back pain that did not respond to traditional medicine. She went through my Body Balance Evaluation process and was able to return to rowing for her nationally known high school program in several weeks.)

 

KEY # 2:  STRENGTH TRAINING USING BODY BALANCE PRINCIPLES

Your competition is really within you!  Once you begin to understand and correct your deficits you will begin to see why these elements are so critical for your development.  The ergometer is relentless, and without proper body balance and rowing specific strength you will be operating at a sub-optimal level.   You will learn how to strength train with correct technique based on your current status.  Everyone is at a different level and needs to train where they are.  With small groups (maximum of four) each athlete will receive proper coaching on how to move based on their current flexibility and strength deficits.  Developing strength the right way is critical for improving power on the ergometer.

“Before (Coach Kaehler’s program), I thought I was a strong rower, compared to the club team.  It turned out I had a lot of weaknesses.  Not only did Coach Kaehler make me stronger, but he also gave me the tools to transfer this knowledge to the rowing stroke.”

Olivia McShea, (2010 – Junior Year HS)- Now rowing for last year’s NCAA Champions

Using Coach Kaehler’s three-month (84-day) training program Olivia subsequently dropped more than 20 seconds on her 2K score at the 2010 CRASH B’s.

 

KEY # 3:  REST AND RECOVERY

Proper rest and recovery are also important in allowing the body to recover from hard but effective training.  This 84-day program has three rest periods built in to ensure you reach your peak on day 84 (CRASH-B’s).  Even if you are not racing in Boston, this will be your peak day to do your 2k!  If you will be training with your HS program this winter I will modify your training schedule to fit into what you are doing.

KEY # 4: MENTAL RACE PREPARATION

Going through a comprehensive program helps build confidence so when you get to race day you have left no stone unturned.  Over the 84-day program and the ten training session we will do together you will be taught some mental skill building techniques.  This is critical for a peak performance.
