FOAM ROLLING – Peninsula Sports Medicine
FOAM ROLLING – Peninsula Sports Medicine
WHAT IS FOAM ROLLING? Foam rolling works by placing direct and sweeping pressure on the soft tissue targeted. Foam rolling has shown to have short-term benefits that result in increased joint range of movement, reductions in pain, and severity of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Foam rolling has been shown to be particularly effective in the first 1-2 days following exercise. It is theorized that foam rolling helps to produce the above results by causing short-term alterations to the neuromuscular system. However, the exact physiological mechanisms of foam rolling that cause the above results are yet to be clearly established. HOW TO EFFECTIVELY FOAM ROLL? Depending on the muscle group you are targeting, use the foam roller in a sweeping fashion along the length of the muscle. You can also friction over ‘problem’ or ‘tight’ areas. You may use a foam roller, spikey ball, trigger point ball or hand roller with this technique. WHEN TO USE FOAM ROLLING? Foam rolling can be used before or after a game of sport, for approximately 1-2 minutes per major muscle group (eg. hamstrings or quadriceps). Before a game, foam rolling should only play a small role in your active warm-up. After a game, foam rolling should be combined with an active cool-down and then static stretching. STILL NOT SURE WHAT TO DO? Contact one of our experienced physiotherapists at Peninsula Sports Medicine Group to help guide you with your injury prevention/conditioning and injury rehabilitation to let you reach your sporting goals!

Infinite Fitness Peninsula – Passionate about a healthy SEJ
Infinite Fitness Peninsula – Passionate about a healthy SEJ
Creating healthy mental and physical habits for players across the South East Juniors is the main focus point for the SEJ’s newest support partner – Infinite Fitness Peninsula (IFP).   IFP is the official Gymnasium/Fitness partner of SEJ and has also engaged as support partner of the SEJ Junior Development Program – which culminates in participation in the AFL South East Regional Junior Championships in early June.   Co-owned by two people that know that being strong and confident – mentally and physically – can lead to sustained success both on and off the field, IFP aims to pass that knowledge and experience on to participants across the region.   Ben Tallis and Steve Roberts combined for eight premierships with the all-conquering Frankston YCW Football Club, where dedication and commitment - and self-improvement from all levels of players - lead to a decade of dominance. Steve (left) and Ben, and their specialised team of strength and conditioning coaches, are now passionate about creating a learning space for juniors athletes and non-athletes to develop strong habits that will help them excel at their chosen sports - or simply improve their quality of life.   IFP’s Junior Athletic Development Program (JADP) is the key pillar in turning Ben and Steve’s passion into reality.   “There’s a modern trend of increased injuries in young athletes and a lot of this is due to poor technique and mechanics,” Ben said.   “Our vision is to educate young athletes, and their coaches, to better prepare the players for the demands of sport through adolescence. And the mental health and well-being side of things is huge for us as well – we want to build a positive and supportive environment for every single person or club that engages with us.”   The JADP is designed to give parents of the South-East region the confidence of having their child in the best-structured and most professional program in the region, run by highly-qualified trainers that take great pride in building confidence and technique in the youth of today.   Steve, the current High-Performance Manager of Frankston Dolphins in the VFL and strength and conditioning coach of the Karingal Football Netball Club, is also excited by the outcomes that will be achieved.   “This is what Ben and I have been striving for, to share the experiences we have had, and the knowledge we have learnt,” he said.   “We are passionate about creating healthy communities instead of healthy children being part of a minority. The Junior Athletic Development Program is something we and the team are very excited about delivering to players of all fitness levels and skill sets.” IFP’s state-of-the-art 900-square-metre facility can be found at 22 Remount Way, Cranbourne West.   Clubs, teams, parents, and participants can take the first steps to a fitter, healthier version of themselves today.   Visit the IFP website at https://www.ifp.com.au/ to find more details, or to learn more about the Junior Athletic Development Program (JADP) contact Travis on 0429 143 972 or via email at travis@ifp.com.au   Thanks to IFP for becoming a proud support partner of the South East Juniors.   -ENDS-
