How to tape your own knee - McConnell
 
05:35
As a Sports Physiotherapist I'm regularly asked about self- taping or strapping for anterior knee pain. One of the most common reasons for knee pain is that the lateral / outer leg structures are tight and the medial / inner leg muscles are weak. This leads to an uneven pull on the patella / knee cap and results in pain. This usually occurs because of a weakness int he glutes, core and perhaps foot muscles. You can follow my knee rehab video for some methods to combat these issues: https://youtu.be/0urlHuF5gJ0 This taping technique will help pull the patella / knee cap inwards and actually encourages you to use the right muscles rather than just holding it in place. It is also good for pain relief and flexible enough to perform sport wearing it too. The tape used is Leucotape P wth Fixumil underneath. Some are allergic to the glue so if you are unsure do not risk it as the skin will get sore and then treatment is difficult. You can buy a combo pack here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Leukotape-LEU003T-P-combi-pack/dp/B0046XYJAE/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1476452414&sr=8-1&keywords=leukotape+p It is of course important to get the knee treated by a physiotherapist and stick to a rehabilitation programme for full recovery. If you are unsure on anything please leave a comment in the comment box and ill be happy to try and answer any questions.

Pilates Ring / Magic Circle Workout: Part 1
 
16:58
Subscribe Here! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXgoMN9MAU2U3rLMLWUWdJA The Pilates Ring / Magic Circle is a wonderful piece of equipment. It can add so much to your pilates mat workout. Pilates in general does not work the arms much so the toning effects are minimal in this area so adding some resistance can assist with this greatly. It also adds to upper body stability, helping the shoulder girdle core muscles to contract and support the whole shoulder girdle. Also by contracting through the ring this helps deepen the abdominal connection helping to layer up the muscles which support the spine. This video mainly concentrates on the abdominals, gluteals and arms. There is now another video focusing on adductors and more standing work. https://youtu.be/-qAL_nQ-W_M And here is one with the resistance bands too! https://youtu.be/QftW0T5ONnY The outfit is by Lululemon - Check out www.lululemon.co.uk for more beautiful and functional outfits

Power Pilates for Athletes Part One: Abs and Glutes
 
26:23
Firstly I bet each and every coach has been told their athletes need to do Pilates and every athlete has been told at some point in their career that Pilates would help either after injury or to enhance performance. I also believe that most of you have resisted doing it! and I don't blame you!! I have been a serious athlete and have been a physiotherapist for as long as I remember and I have certainly questioned its place and effectiveness within elite sport. So... why did I doubt it? Before doing my full pilates training my main issue with pilates was how complicated it seemed. All of the positioning felt over the top, I constantly doubted whether I was contracting the right muscles if anything at all!!. I found it boring and frustrating. It took a lot of practice to move onto the next stage of exercises and I lost a lot if my clients going through tedious exercises to reach a level that they felt made a difference at all!. Why am I now a convert and how are all my classes now Oversubscribed?! I trained with the APPI who are Physios teaching Pilates. This training made sense as I learned the scientific background and principles of Pilates. Then through teaching regularly and practicing daily I have developed my own way of progressing through the levels. So now I have my own method! The Kim Saha Method - The Key to this method is its simplicity. The main principles are taught, simply and there is no pressure to achieve the positions just to understand them and that they are to be worked towards. These principles being positioning, deep abdominals contraction and correct movement patterns (see my youtube video on the basics https://youtu.be/KfHlcWPmUYY) I believe that you will achieve the main Pilates principles through stress free relaxed practice. As long as you are not dong any harm by adopting slightly individual positions / movements I will not overly correct. In the same way if some of the moves are slightly unstable, along as no damage is being caused I will encourage repetition regularly and strength will improve naturally. I therefore allow people to progress from the first session to the level they can physically achieve as long as they are maintaining a neutral pelvis and not bulging through their abdominals. Why do I believe this works? If Athletes and Sports people can feel their muscles burning they will feel an improvement. If this is done in a good posture with constant reminders of positioning and specific cues then over time the correct muscles will fire encouraging stability and efficiency of movement. Although controversial I believe this is the way forward with sports people. The pilates community needs to change their approach if we want to influence the sporting world. I would rather engage an athlete mentally and have them commit to a programme feeling enormous results than stay true to my training and engage very few alienating many more. My Pilates Workouts For Athletes I have developed my Pilates Workouts for Athletes... Call it what you like though Abs, Glutes and Core Circuit? It is essentially the same exercises i'm sure you do already with pilates positioning, focus, specificity and control. These workouts can be done regularly alongside training to keep the stability muscles engaged to give the body the best chance to produce the power needed to perform like a winner!

Shoulder Rehab Level 1: Strength, Mobility, Stretching, Education and Posture
 
10:34
When a shoulder is painful it is likely there is an issue with strength, mobility, tightness and posture. This video should help most simple shoulder problems by addressing the typical issues experienced in most cases. The way that the shoulder has developed mechanically means that if the head if the humerus is pulled forwards then the internal structures consisting of nerves, tendons, ligaments and bursae are compressed and impinged. This happens in many cases. The causes are generally poor training technique developing the front muscles more than the back along with the lats which also pull the shoulder forward. Also common is the contribution of the office work posture with rounded shoulders and certain sports whereby the front muscles must be extremely strong i.e. throwing / bowling. It is possible to see if this video is appropriate for you by checking through the following questions. You should answer yes to most of these questions for it to be useful. 1. Your pain is situated only in the shoulder, not lower than the elbow or higher than the tip of the shoulder. 2. Your pain comes on when you lift to the side or the front and is worse above 90 degrees 3. You have no pins and needles or numbness 4. You still have enough mobility for everyday activities e.g. washing hair. 5. Your pain is 5/10 or less 6. You have had no significant trauma to the shoulder 7. You struggle to lie on the shoulder. If you are in doubt in any way about whether this video is appropriate then seek further advice. If it does make you feel worse then please don't continue and the creator does not accept any responsibility for worsening of symptoms or any injury as a result of doing these exercises.

Pilates to Improve your Posture
 
08:01
Good posture exudes confidence, good health and attractiveness. Not only that but it can improve your gym performance and equivalent gains dramatically. Holding a strong position whilst lifting weights helps create a stable base to work from, it develops the muscles correctly and improves your ability to hold that upright poise throughout the rest of your day. Whilst running, lifting or playing sport is not an effective time to correct your posture. However, during a controlled focused Pilates workout, it is much easier to make the changes. It can be done at minimum once per week, and yes, it is possible to see improvements in your posture with this small amount of effort! Why? Because your body wants to stand and hold its self well, you are turning on the correct muscles and so the good feeling this creates encourages the body to maintain these positions throughout your day. The following series of 6 exercises should be performed one after the next in high numbers ideally twice per week to get results.

Quick Pilates Glutes Workout
 
09:27
Filmed at 1800m in Font Romeu- A little town in the Pyrenees where many British Endurance athletes train and live throughout the year. I’m very proud to have been looking after the athletes who have been selected for the Rio Olympics up here and took the opportunity when quiet to film some of my favourite exercises with stunning backdrops. This glut workout covers my favourite glut exercises both for stability and strength. Many people with back and lower limb injuries are told their gluts are weak. The gluts support the back by stabilising the pelvis and encourage good lower back positioning and muscle activation. They support through the leg by stabilising the hip and encouraging good alignment. If the glutes function well the whole propulsion system is more efficient. Therefore I have filmed a quick all inclusive workout that will fire up and work the endurance of this muscle group. I hope you like it… if you do then comment below, click like and subscribe if youd like to receive notification of new workouts every Monday. Enjoy!

Mini Band Workout: Abs 1
 
19:55
Right now I'm loving the Mini Bands! They give such an intensive workout to the abs. all the exercises combine abs contractions with isometric holds or pulses around the shoulders or glutes. The main muscles working are the scapula (shoulder blade) stability muscles which is wonderful for shoulder function. And the Gluteus Medius which is an essential part of the core providing stability around the pelvis, lower back and hips. I found the bands really intensified the contraction in my lower and deep abdominals. I hope you enjoy this workout. Go easy and use the weaker bands at first. Remember to only participate if you are safe to do so. The creators are not responsible for any issues that develop as a result of performing these exercises.

Pilates For Beginners by Kim Saha
 
22:46
For anyone starting pilates it can seem like a daunting prospect. There are so many positions and postures to think about and it is felt that if it is not all right it is not worth doing. I started teaching pilates 5 years ago having been a physio since 2000. Pilates is an enormous part of my life and I believe it creates the scaffolding that holds my body together. I've also been told that I look better now than I did when i was an 18 year old athlete. I'm definitely stronger, more flexible and in less pain!. My technique involves a series of postures from head to toe, constant reminders of these and then a modified pilates repertoire taken from the APPI teachings. Being a physiotherapist by trade I take quite a clinical view of pilates. I am however also a mum of 3 who takes pride in my appearance. My sessions aim to work you hard whilst being strict with your positioning. I do believe though that you shouldn't try to be perfect before starting pilates... it's is the doing of the pilates that perfects the positioning so try to clear your mind a little, go through the flowing movements and enjoy the videos. The creator accepts no responsibility for the worsening of symptoms, lack of improvements, injuries / issues experienced as a result of participating in any of these videos. If you do have any questions though please do comment in the comment box below and I will try to answer the best I can.

HiiT-Pilates Complete Runners Workout!
 
36:00
As a Physio for the British Athletics Team I have worked worked with many Elite Runners. It is now well known that the time spent training in the gym is as important as that spent clocking up mileage. For the amateur athlete time is pressured and i know that if you've time to train you'd rather be on the roads. I have therefore concocted a complete runners workout that includes some standing stability work, a complete HiiT workout and an abs and glutes core burn section. This is all within 36 minutes!!! then you're done for the week, freeing you up to run to your hearts content. I include a warmup of the joints and tendons around the knee and ankle this is one of the most important sections as this video will certainly challenge these areas and you should not perform it if you have any issues that could be made worse. I'm very happy with the sound quality on this video and think it may be my best yet as far as the filming and flow is concerned.

Post-Natal Pilates Part One
 
25:04
Subscribe Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXgoMN9MAU2U3rLMLWUWdJA With two 'Super-Mums' Jessica Ennis-Hill and Jo Pavey on the British Team competing at the Rio Olympics I'm releasing this video to celebrate what is possible to achieve from your body after having a baby. This session is designed to Introduce you back to Pilates and ultimately fitness after having your baby. I will describe how the pregnancy effects how the body functions afterwards and what to expect from it in response. As a physiotherapist and a Mum of 3, I understand both the sensible restrictions one needs to adhere to and the need to get your body back to normal both aesthetically and functionally. I don’t believe in rushing things so it is only appropriate to watch this if you are 6 weeks postnatal. This is the point where you have received your standard 6 week check and you know everything is ok to start to do gentle exercise. (Your GP / Midwife will advise). I also believe that before this it is more important to be looking after yourself, resting both your body and mind and getting used to the new dynamic in your family. It is important not to start too soon as you will not see the benefits, Relaxin is still being produced o varying levels whist you’re breast feeding so consider this when setting yourself goals. Relaxin works on all structures of the body therefore it is difficult to stabilise and tone. Read the blog on my website for more information on this (link to BF Blog). You should all have confidence that it is possible to return to your previous shape (somewhat) but you must not push yourself too soon. I left it at least 1 year after each baby to push myself. And remember a good diet for energy and sensible weight control is essential if you want to get back in shape. This doesn’t mean you must go on a strict diet, maybe just be sensible eat lots of the right things without unnecessary refined sugary foods and drinks. The tips I give you in this workout can be carried forwards through all of my Pilates and HiiT Workouts so move forwards to the Basic Pilates and soon to be released Intermediate Pilates Workouts. Most Importantly only exercises if you’ve been given the go ahead by a professional and please don’t ignore advice from your doctor if told exercise could make things worse. Pilates may seem very minimal but if done in the wrong circumstances it could be quite detrimental to your recovery.

Non -Impact, HiiT- Pilates Workout Part One
 
23:22
Many people I treat travel with work and it seems to be a real issue with maintaining fitness. Routine is a very important factor that encourages people to maintain regular exercise and regular exercise is the key to getting fit, staying fit and loosing weight. So if you travel a lot then it may be a good idea to introduce some hiit workouts without the use of equipment that can be done anywhere. HiiT - Pilates is a workout that has 2 elements... The HiiT element is a high intensity exercise which lasts 30 seconds and the pilates is in the break. There are 5 pairs of exercises which are matched together because of the mechanics and muscles used. There is a warm up to prepare the joints and tendons and there is s focus on form. Your hotel room can be moved around to accommodate. And it could be nice to be outside by the pool or a grassy area if I'm a warm climate. The gym could be a good place to train obviously! You could warm up on the bike. And the reason for doing the hiit workout is to maintain the same routine as at home and that it is quick

Intermediate Mat Pilates
 
37:10
Description: Filmed in Font Romeu at the Rio Olympics holding camp for the British Endurance Athletes. This Workout is a typical session that I teach from my garden at home but with a slightly more spectacular background. The session consists of a standing warm-up with proprioception exercises to ground down through the feet, gluteus medius exercises and upper body stretches. The matwork then consists of seated abdominal work, deep abdominal isolation, abdo prep / crunch description then practice then more abdominal work incorporating the obliques and rectus abdominis in double leg tabletop position. The Glutes will then be worked to exhaustion in side lying and all of this then put into action in standing followed by a few stretches. This type of workout should be done 3x per week along with some higher intensity work that gets your heart rate up a little more. This could be cardio or a HiiT workout. I would suggest some of my classes here on my YouTube channel as they are safer on the joints than many other HiiT Workouts.

To Celebrate the Olympics in Rio this week here's my Second Pilates Ring Workout. If you've done the workout please click LIKE and COMMENT below - Scroll all the way to the bottom. Id love to know what you think After the success of the last workout here is another informative class teaching you how to use the ring to encourage better activation of the adductor muscle group which feeds into the pelvic floor and therefore deep abdominals. You can literally feel these muscles working together and after running through this workout a few times you'll feel a lift through this area and feel much stronger. The adductors along with the abs and glutes stabilise the pelvis. This is extremely important during pregnancy, the post-natal period. This workout is also appropriate for sports people who want to stabilise the pelvis in order to create more power from stability. For any of you that feel they need a little more than just matwork pilates give this a try to the end and feel how much it adds to the session. Pick one up from amazon:https://www.amazon.co.uk/PhysioWorld-Pilates-Resistance-Ring-Double/dp/B00C0X5T24/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1470604851&sr=8-3&keywords=pilates+ring For those of you wondering where the beautiful place is that I filmed this workout it was on holiday in Cornwall.

Knee Rehab Level 1: Strength, Stretching and Release for Simple Knee Pain
 
27:09
This video is a series of Strengthening, Stretching, Stabilising exercises to rehabilitate simple knee issues. Many people suffer from knee pain the most common reason being tightness though the lateral / outer thigh and weakness though the medial / inner thigh muscles. The outer thigh structures namely the Iliotibial band / ITB, lateral Quads and Hamstrings get tight usually due to the alignment of the leg and poor muscle activation in the Gluteals - mostly Gluteus Medius This causes the Tensor Fascia Latae / TFL to grip and therefore the whole lateral thigh. These mechanics pull on the patella / knee cap and tug it laterally / to the outer side of the leg. This causes many common knee issues. Even if the issue is with the knee joint itself having the above issues controlled can lead to great pain relief / better mechanics and therefore less strain on the joint. Check list for appropriateness of these exercises: 1. You've been advised it is ok to exercise by your GP / Consultant? 2. You're pain is not made worse by simple walking / moving around? 3. You're knee is not too swollen, hot / inflamed. 4. You're pain is less than 5/10 5. You're knee generally feels better for light exercise The creator of this video aims only to help and therefore you must make sensible decisions on its appropriateness for you. You must stop at any time you think its not right. The creator holds no responsibility for any injuries / worsening symptoms as a result go these exercises.

Post Run Stretches - Increase your Mobility Safely!
 
04:48
Filmed at 1800m in Font Romeu- A little town in the Pyrenees where many British Endurance athletes train and live throughout the year. I’m very proud to have been looking after the athletes who have been selected for the Rio Olympics up here and took the opportunity when quiet to film some of my favourite exercises with stunning backdrops. Whilst waiting for a group of athletes to finish their loop of this lake I filmed a good selection of stretches for after a run. I have included some neural stretches which mobilise the nerves. Sometimes when trying to get more mobility through muscles and joints it can be the nerve that is tethered and restricting motion. You will notice some stretches have a small controlled bounce at the end of the range - this is to free the nerve from its surroundings. When used to treat specific injuries these stretches must be more specific and targeted but if used in the manner I have filmed you will find you have more general 'neural mobility' and therefore better ability to stretch your muscles post run.
