HYPERICE ENGINEER AND MOUNTAIN BIKER
HYPERICE ENGINEER AND MOUNTAIN BIKER
Of the 45 million mountain and road bikers in the USA, only some like myself have discovered that taking good care of our tired, overworked quadriceps, hamstring, glutes and calf muscles can provide an undeniable edge to our performance. As a middle-aged mountain biker, my leg muscles scream at me if I don’t take good care of them. They demand a solid pre-ride warm up routine and some post-ride TLC. I have come to learned that to neglect this results in stiffness, pain, and less then optimal performance on the trails. Stretching, warm compresses, and even a soothing dip in the Jacuzzi have all been helpful to prepare for a grueling ride and recovery afterwards. Admittedly, preparing and recovery is time consuming, a hassle and is so often skipped, only to have my legs remind me shortly after; hey remember us!



In ten minutes time, the Vyper and Hypersphere do wonders for warming up these critical muscles and preparing them for pumping the pedals. The improvement in performance is undeniable. Afterwards, these same tools bring soothing relief from pain while keeping these crucial muscles loose and supple. The combination of pressure and vibration delivered from the Vyper and Hypersphere is exactly what these muscles are screaming for, and it feels so good.

To get an edge, I’m the guy that invested thousands of dollars for some of the best cycling equipment available only to discover that my greatest performance boost came from my legs only after they were well taken of with some high intensity vibration from Hyperice.

WHAT IS THE FOAM ROLLER WITH BLUE LIGHTS
WHAT IS THE FOAM ROLLER WITH BLUE LIGHTS
The Vyper is not your ordinary foam roller. Used daily by the world's most elite athletes, the VYPER VG1 is a cutting-edge fitness and recovery device that uses pressure and vibration to improve the body's overall physical performance. With three speeds of high-intensity vibration, the VYPER VG1 allows you to warm up, activate, and recover faster and more effectively than any other SMR tool. Our newest model, the The VYPER 2.0, is the next generation of the world’s most powerful vibrating fitness roller.

But what are those blue lights? The blue lights indicate the level of vibration output by the VYPER. The settings are as easy as counting 1, 2, 3! One blue light indicates the lowest setting, and three indicates the highest and most intense. The three vibration settings transmit superior amplitude and vibration for physiological benefits. Using the VYPER is two times more effective than regular foam rolling to warm up and actively recover and increases range of motion by up to 40% (versus 18% increase with regular foam rolling).

HOW DOES VIBRATION HELP WITH FOAM ROLLING?
HOW DOES VIBRATION HELP WITH FOAM ROLLING?
There are many physiological benefits to foam rolling with vibration. Vibration increases circulation making it ideal for warming up the body before physical activity. It also helps to loosen and lengthen muscles to increase flexibility and to reduce muscle soreness and stiffness for better recovery.

Vibration is the key to what makes the Vyper, the Hyperice foam roller, so effective. In fact, the Vyper is two times more effective than regular foam rolling to warm up and actively recover. There are three speed settings of high-intensity vibration that help increase range of motion by up to 40% (versus 18% increase with regular foam rolling). Hyperice’s vibration technology combined with our battle tested shell penetrates deeper for muscle activation as well as significant reduction in pain associated with my official release.

R-I-C-E WHEN YOU ICE
R-I-C-E WHEN YOU ICE
As soon as possible after an acute injury, you can relieve pain and swelling and start the healing process with RICE - rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

  • Rest. Protect the injured or sore area. Refrain from any activity that puts stress on the afflicted area or may worsen the injury.
  • Ice. Apply ice to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Compression. Compress or wrap the injured area to help decrease swelling.
  • Elevation. Elevate the injury while applying ice. Try to keep the area at or above the level of your heart to help minimize swelling.


  • Hyperice Ice Compression Technology combines the compression wrap with the patented air-release valve ice cell to maximize recovery.

TIPS TO DECREASE LOWER BACK PAIN
TIPS TO DECREASE LOWER BACK PAIN
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), about 80 percent of adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. If you’re one of them, consider these natural methods to help alleviate your discomfort. A few simple lifestyle changes may be all you need. Learn how healthier habits can improve your back health and relieve your pain.

Sleep smartly - The position you sleep in can also affect your back health. Try to sleep on your side, in a relaxed fetal position with your knees bent. Place a small pillow under your neck. This will keep your spine in alignment. Another pillow between your legs can stop your top leg from sliding forward and twisting your lower back as you sleep.

Practice good posture - Slouching and poor posture can cause and make back pain worse, especially if you sit for long periods. Many people spend long days working at desks, hunched over computers. If you don’t practice proper ergonomics at work, your back, neck and shoulders may suffer. Sit upright with your shoulders relaxed and your feet flat on the ground.

Get some low-impact exercise - When you’re in pain, exercise may be the last thing you want to do. But regular physical activity is essential to good back health. Consider walking at a brisk pace, swimming laps, or participating in yoga several times a week. These low-impact activities can boost your fitness level, and provide strength and flexibility to your back.

Soothe the pain with Venom and Hyperice Back Ice Compression Device (ICT) – Two products that continue to help soothe back pain are the Venom, our portable heat + vibration back device and the Ice Compression Back Device. The Back ICT provides the most custom cryotherapy treatment for the back compared to regular applications of ice, like placing a back of frozen peas on your lower back while you prop yourself against a chair. Hyperice Ice Compression Technology allows you to reduce inflammation, and in this case, help to numb back pain for an extended period of time. Following the Back ICT, we recommend to treat with heat anytime throughout the day with the Venom. You can customize the temperature and vibration settings on the Venom to your liking and experience how this portable wrap can release tension specifically in the lower back by reducing muscle spasms and increasing blood flow to the area.

Switch to an anti-inflammatory diet - Good nutrition to the rescue! Nourishing your body with foods that reduce inflammation can really help you feel better much sooner. Reduce the number of pro-inflammatory foods you eat and ask your doctor about herbal remedies as well.

Think about the little things - Pay attention to your small daily movements. For example:
  • don’t carry too much weight in your bag
  • always wear your backpack on both shoulders, instead of by a single strap
  • always bend at your knees when you’re picking up objects
  • It may also help to add some gentle stretching to your morning or evening routine. A few changes to your daily habits and lifestyle might make a world of different to your back.

    Guest Blog: Professional Volleyball Player Ciara Michael
    Guest Blog: Professional Volleyball Player Ciara Michael
    My job is awesome! I might be a particularly positive person, but I wouldn't trade what I do for anything. What other job in the world has a designated nap time, snack time, and play time, and 4-month vacation? I am not ashamed to say I am basically a professional kindergartener. But just like kindergarten, being a pro volleyball player won’t last forever, because inevitably the human body begins to deteriorate. The older I get, the more I see and feel the importance of preparation and recovery.
    In this job, as in most, you will get out of it as much as you put in. We generally train twice a day, let’s say 9-11am and 4-6pm, which might not sound like a whole lot, but… If we push ourselves to the max during those windows, then how we spend our ‘down time’ becomes more important. So that nap time that I joke about is actually a key part of my day, because sleep is one of the pillars of recovery.

    So, here are a few of the tricks I’ve learned to keep my old and decrepit body functioning like a 21-year-old across an average training day:
    • When I wake up in the morning, I immediately put on a wrap to heat my back — since I had a minor injury last season, I am particularly still in the morning. I’m spoiled and I’ve got the high tech vibrating Venom from Hyperice which I love, but before that I used the low-tech hot water bottle option as a substitute. I keep the wrap on while I go about my morning routine, about 20 minutes or so, enough time to eat breakfast and listen to my news podcast The Daily.
    • Next I try to get in about 10-15 minutes of foam rolling. It’s a great way to get the muscles lengthened and warm before training. I use the Vyper, which has an added element of vibration, meaning more blood flow is circulating to the area. The result is my muscles feeling looser and more limber, and overall warmer and ready to move
    • Before getting into the full warmup at training, I always do about ten minutes of active stretching, which can be anything from lunges and squats, to planks and crunches. Then the full warm up is more speed oriented, so things like ladder drills, mini sprints and block jumps.
    • I’m lucky that my coach here in France is flexible, and allows me to incorporate my PBJumps program into our team strength and conditioning workout. But as some of you already know it is a pretty intense program, and the result is very tired and sore muscles. So immediately after training I roll again. For this part, I love the Hypersphere, which is basically a foam roller in the shape of a ball. I can just find a sore spot and sit on it, let the vibration do all the work to loosen up a tight muscle.
    • If it was a ball training, I’ll throw ice immediately on my shoulder, back and/or knees, or the best is even a full body ice bath whenever possible. The ice constricts blood flow and reduces inflammation (although inflammation is important sometimes…). Real time effects: I feel very, very cold. But refreshed.
    • After lunch and an hour nap, I repeat the whole hot to cold process again for the next training. I eat a lot of veggies and chicken, and take BCAA before and after each training, as well as a protein shake after weights. I like MyProtein for supplements, because I know they batch test all of their products, so I don't have to worry about contaminations with banned substances that could cost me my awesome job.
    • If we have a long travel day, especially on a plane, I’ll wear compression socks from Compressport. Their knee-high black socks are highly unfashionable with sneakers, but they do keep my ankles from swelling up like the Michelin Man. So sacrifices must be made.
    I know it probably doesn't sound like groundbreaking stuff; heating, rolling, stretching and icing, but it’s sometimes overlooked, or even forgotten entirely, behind the work we do on the court and in the weight room. Just like finger painting is a building block for the fine motor skills of a kindergartner, preparation and recovery are the backbone to a fit and healthy volleyball player.
    People often ask me when I plan to stop playing, but as long as I am able to keep my body fit and healthy, I can honestly say — not anytime soon.

    So stay fit and stay tuned!
    Ci
