IT Band Syndrome - Causes and Treatment

Iliotibial Band (IT Band) syndrome is one of two conditions with the nickname “runner’s knee”. The other, patellofemoral syndrome, also comes from overuse, so it’s easy to confuse the two. While patellofemoral syndrome results in discomfort around the knee cap, IT band syndrome causes pain on the outside of the knee. Combine certain muscular imbalances with the daily dedication of runners, and you can get lateral knee issues. IT band syndrome brings anywhere from mild irritation to extreme pain for some. But what exactly causes it, and what can you do about it? [...]

Product Recommendations: Shakes and Hydration

Posted on May 31, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Training hard requires you to replenish what your body has lost.  Protein shakes and hydration supplements are a necessity when you train as much as I do.  Typically, I will use something for at least a month before it ever qualifies to be tournament-worthy.  I never (ever) try anything new around tournaments.  When I finish with an event, that's when I will come home and experiment.  This includes both what I put in my body and what I put on my body.  You can bet that I will test anything from shakes and supplements to  shoes, tennis strings, and clothes.  The willingness to experiment is how we evolve and improve ourselves and has always been a big part of my regime.  I am definitely a “tester and a learner."  Read on to see some of my favorite protein shakes and hydration supplements.  [...]
