We just wanted to note Jim’s article that he wrote for the Canberra Cyclist magazine late last year. It is a great read for any cyclist who wants to improve their lower limb strength and their cycling. Jim covers the main areas of the Calf muscles, Quadriceps, Gluteal muscles and the Hamstrings. He’s also included easy exercises to help you improve your lower limb strength.
This was the first Volunteering in Nepal trip since we set up our charitable works program. To catch you up – on my last journey to Nepal, I discussed with Matt from Hike Himalaya Adventures how Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy could help the disadvantaged in the remote rural villages of Nepal. You can read about that here.
Sport & Spinal Physio really love volunteering our services at the Mother’s Day Classic run every year. It is a wonderful event with a great community of volunteers and participants. We regularly have therapists volunteer their time on Mother’s Day to help out in our massage tent for a few hours. This year, David, who normally works in admin, joined Simon, Jamie, Freddy and Craig in the tent, on what was a pretty cold day in Canberra. David is a 3rd year Physiotherapy student at UC and he was keen to volunteer his time and knowledge. Here’s David’s match report:
How does Volunteering in Nepal sound? Sport & Spinal have been volunteering our services to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities in remote parts of Australia for a while now. You can read more about some of our Charitable Works Programs in Palm Island, (here and here), North East Arnhem Land (here and here), and Nepal. This time we’ve amped up our program and we’re volunteering in Nepal.
Last week we held our first Strength Training workshop. This workshop followed on from our Stretch workshop the previous week. Simon presented a comprehensive workshop full of information and practical advice. Again, it was great to see some new faces to our clinic and as always, it was lovely to see some of our current clients. A big thanks to Simon for running the event and sharing his immense knowledge and expertise. We look forward to seeing some of you again in our future workshops. Stay tuned for our bike fitness workshops coming soon.
