Training for a marathon can seem quite overwhelming. Not just because of the distance (although, running 26 miles in a row can be quite daunting). It’s also because of the million different things (well, it seems like a million) that you’re supposed to do and/or know as part of your training. There’s interval runs, tempo runs, long runs… and that’s just for the running. And there’s stretching. And foam rolling. And conditioning. And don’t forget
Wouldn’t it be great if there was some way to prolong the effects of your massages? There is! Workshops at Leyton Sports Massage. Self care exercises like stretching, muscle activation, posture adjustments and foam rolling improve muscle function, make your training more effective and decrease your chances of having long term aches and pains. But… how do you know if you’re doing it right? Doing squats without activating your glutes can lead to serious hamstring,
Well – it’s March. We’re two months away from the glow of January resolutions… How are you doing with your goal?

Welcome to the 2nd piece in our activation series – glute activation. In the first of this series, we talked about what muscle activation is and what having under activated or underrecruited muscles means. (if you haven’t read the first one, I recommend you click here to go back and come back once you’ve read it – there is some information I’m assuming you know in this post) In this second piece, we’re talking about
If you’d like to spend less on Amazon & support local businesses this holiday season, you’re not alone. Plus giving gifts like massage therapy, meditation, and other therapies, or sustainable, environmentally-friendly gifts are much kinder to the planet. But it can be so hard to find the right gifts, and let’s face it Amazon search is SO much easier than trying to work out which of the hundreds of outcomes on google are good businesses.

It’s usually that they didn’t listen to what you wanted, didn’t work in the style or depth of pressure that you like, or any number of small things that while not major, can leave you feeling unhappy with your experience.
