Move your body, it’s January 1st!!!

1 Jan

iMuscle Home by 3D4MedicalToday is January 1st 2014.
The day you wake up with headache and drowsiness.
It’s time to change something!
Today is also the day when you make decisions, make changes, …
To improve yourselves, your life or the world …
It’s also the day, when you decide to lose the extra kg/pounds due to the past 2 weeks when your mom has been feeding you like there’s no food where you live.
Today is THE day! The day, I make the decision in front of you to go back to my gym sessions I’ve been skipping since last April

But you know, I don’t like to go to the gym (takes time, you meet people you don’t want to meet, you have to dress up fancy, you lose time going there and coming back, …) not an easy resolution to keep,
or maybe yes if you use the iMuscle Home edition.
Remember some months ago, I told you about the iMuscle2 app that you could customize to your needs on your iPhone and iPad. Now, 3D4Medical released it’s brand new version of iMuscle2 for us who want to exercise at home without gears and tools.
Just tap the muscles you want to target on the 3D human body and start building your very own work sessions or use the preset ones.

. Boosts decision-making skills
. Prompts growth if the new nerve cells and blood vessels

And also because after your session, you will feel good and proud of yourself!
I wish you all the best for 2014!!!

Need socks ?

30 Jul

What’s more stupid than a sock ? Two socks ?
Nope, socks can be your ally for better performance while practicing high level sport or simply for comfort when just hanging around.
For many years now compression socks have been around but were targeted to athletes or those having issues with blood circulation.
I found these socks at a golf tournament and decided to give them a try as I walked the 18 holes following players … That could tire anyone even the sporty.
The principle of compression socks is the following: during the effort, the calves play the role of peripheral heart (a 2nd source of oxygenation of your muscles).
During sport, the veins dilate which decrease the oxygenation of the muscles.
This can create tiredness, cramps, … which will lead to lesser performances and sometimes to injury.


The difference with medical compression is that it starts from the calves instead of the ankles. If you don’t have a pathology its better to work from the calves than the ankles.
How to find your size ? Measure the calves diameter and the tibia length.
Lots of athletes use them regularly (Tennis players, soccer and golf players, …).
Being a daily hero, you can use them during sport sessions, or after for recovery or while working on your comfort. Give them a try, you might be surprised as to how effective they are.
Pick your style between recovery socks, booster (no foot) and socks.

I bought 2 invisible running short socks, 1 pair of running ankle socks and 1 pair of multisport socks.

Check this small French company located in Saint Etienne called BV Sport which is manufacturing them since 1998.
