Sole TT8 Treadmill

Sole TT8 Treadmill

Hi! Let’s begin our week with a review of the Sole TT8 Treadmill. This is a good treadmill – sturdy, has a powerful motor that is relatively silent combined with excellent deck and belt cushioning and a great warranty cover. However, I know that there are treadmills in this quality and feature range for lesser (such as the Landice treadmills of this range). Though Sole does a remarkable job with treadmill reliability and efficiency, USD 2399 is a notch over what I would pay for the Sole TT8. Let’s take a look at the Sole TT8’s specs:

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs)

Hi, Repetitive Strain Injuries are often caused to endurance athletes and those who train for long hours, everyday, using the same muscle, ligaments, bones etc causing to strain them.These injuries are pesky as they take time to heal and in some cases return on resumption of the sessions. They can also be very painful conditions. RSIs often begin with mild discomfort in the form of pain but if uncared for, get worse. Sometimes the pain may disappear after a few minutes of beginning giving the false sense of minor trouble. RSIs are more common with wrists, ankles, shins, neck etc. Symptoms may include numbness in the affected body part or tingling on holding objects or straining apart from the pain.

How to beat the Piriformis Syndrome

Hi! In today’s fitness notes, we will take a look at the Piriformis Syndrome – which is condition that sometime afflicts exercisers when they walk or squat excessively as a part of their fitness regime. The syndrome is a neuromuscular condition that may arise from excessive usage or strain of the Piriformis and its muscle.

The Piriformis muscle is located deep inside the buttock or gluteal muscles. When the Piriformis muscle gets aggravated and swollen, it presses against the sciatic nerve and the sciatic nerve presses in turn against the bone. This causes radiating and excruciating pain, spasms and discomfort. It may also cause tingling and numbness in the buttock region as well as along the sciatic nerve.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS)

Hi. Today, we shall cover the infamous Iliotibial Band Syndrome or the ITBS that sabotages the fitness routines of many fitness enthusiasts.

The iliotibial band is a thick tissue that extends from out of the pelvis, running over the hip down through the lateral outer thigh and inserts just below our knee. One of the main functions of this band is to help stabilize our knee during movements like running, cycling, walking etc. Sometimes, due to sudden overload, overuse (repeated flexion and extension of the knee) or rubbing of the band over the lateral femur, the band is inflamed and causes pain in the lateral outer side of the knee or in the entire length of the band. The pain may start after a couple of minutes into the workout and will aggravate on continuing and on foot strike.
