The best in Virginia state. And maybe one of the best in USA. The master, the boss, il Capo Di tutti Capi Mr Khur.

VeloFit Physical Therapy was founded with a vision to provide a true one-on-one environment for patients to receive individualized care to meet their goals

Velofit's personalized care is completely guided by a Doctor of Physical Therapy which ensures quality treatment when you need it the most. What sets VeloFit apart from other run-of-the-mill PT clinics is that you receive full one-on-one hour long treatments to meet your goals at a much faster rate. We operate as a fee-for-service clinic and do not participate with insurances to make sure the pati

Stack & Tilt⚖️
.
Probably one of the principles we repeat the most in bike fitting
.
Stack your body over the bike and adjust the tilt on the saddle so that it allows the pelvis to properly balance
.
Your body changes over time and every bit of your injury history matters, especially as you age
.
Thanks Hoby for coming in today to discuss many things and having the growth mindset to learn more about your body

You’re in aero, but can you sustain it for 112 miles? Contact points need to be dialed in for comfort
.
Comfort=speed ☺️
.
We recommended some changes for 🌎 @ironmantri world championships in Kona for today’s fit
.
Recommendations:
✅ cleat position changes
✅ @canyon Speedmax 9° Spacer Kit for higher hands
✅ @51speedshop arm cups for increased elbow surface contact area

Hip Hinging on the MTB requires a tremendous of pushing & pulling through the feet 👣
.
Understanding where to “feel the pressure” through the cleats as you perform row/anti-row motions on the MTB is vital to build a solid base on the bike
.
Glad we got a nice cleat placement session in the clinic today to understand proprioceptive input through the feet
.
If you scroll through you’ll see when I asked Davis where he felt the feet in both staggered positions

❌The human body does not work in single planes of motion
.
🏃‍♂️Accelerating, decelerating and change of direction are so vital to multi-directional athletes
.
🤕 When you don’t use these different planes, you start to notice dysfunction over time
.
I’ve been fascinated with combination of movements especially utilizing the adductors and loading the contralateral side. Like many sports, the CNS 🧠 will develop strategies to move according to the demand that it requires. Why not train different planes of motion
.
This has been a simple drill I’ve been using with endurance athletes who are breaking down. Combining thoracic rotation and adductor load is great for force closure at the pelvis!

Did you know?
.
⏰Our ability to push off with our calf muscle complex declines by approximately 31% between 20 and 60 years of age.
.
Might be a good idea to work on that? 🤔
.
3 Way Calf Raises work 3-dimensionally for all parts of the calf muscle and strengthens our achilles tendon
.
🏃🏻‍♀️For runners: the push off phase is where our gastroc/soleus complex shines ❇️
.
🚴‍♀️For cyclists: the gastroc/soleus complex acts as a lever and a mechanical pump to conserve energy up the chain, unless you are a sprinter... then the fast-twitch fibers have to do their part to produce power through the pedals!

During our inservice today with the strength coaches, we had an open discussion about the prevalence of hip flexor weakness in nearly all the clients I test in the clinic
.
🍑The glutes/posterior chain get the majority of attention, but the hip flexors are often neglected
.
🚴In cycling, the psoas offloads the opposite leg during the power phase of the pedal stroke
.
🥁 I’ve always been obsessed with rhythm and maintaining cadence during athletic maneuvers. There’s an internal timer that athletes have to maintain irrespective of the sport
.
⏱Using a metronome can be one of the best ways to keep you honest and in time without “over-cueing”
.
📱So I busted out the metronome app and messed around with using it for hip flexor training/rhythm
.
This is what I came up with so far. Could be useful for a lot of athletes, especially cyclists!

So f*ckin’ pumped for you bro. Not a lot of people understand the amount of sacrifice, stress and pain that a pro athlete has to go through behind the scenes. Thanks for letting me be part of the journey. You deserve all of the spoils today Joe! 🇺🇸

Half Kneeling Psoas (hip flexor) Stretch
.
Coach Reinaldo’s cues:
🔺Rib cage down to pelvis
🔺Pull zipper from chest and p***c bone together
🔺Lean slightly forward
.
⚠️ You must feel it in the hip flexor (front of hip/upper thigh) and NOT in the low back

🐻 Bear Plank Shoulder Taps
.
🔺Set up aligned over shoulder girdle
🔺Press into the ground
🔺Lift knees to “hover” over the ground
🔺Limit rotational rocking and sway
.
Get it!
.
ℹ️ If you didn’t know, we have a YouTube 📺 page that will include exercises that we love here in the clinic
.
🎥 These are currently being filmed and recorded as resources for our members who are on our Remote Coaching Program. Remember that exercises have to be executed properly for the right person at the right time in order to create an effect!

🚨 Bike fitters/Bike Shops
.
Don’t be a d*ck. The 👨🏻“man-splaining” needs to end
.
✊ Respect your clients and most importantly, respect the woman
.
Women are badasses and there needs to be an industry overhaul in respecting people who come through your doors. As a bike shop, bike fitter, or clinic.... respect EVERY person who comes to you looking for help
.
🪨 Btw, Gravel is definitely a thing. Keep grindin’

Strength training will bulletproof your body for whatever lies ahead

Muscle loss during aging is not linear. It generally accelerates with age. If you are over the age of 40 and not currently strength training, we should probably change that 💪

🧪Testing
.
🦾Establishing your own body’s metabolic response to exercise is critical if you want the best plan. If you want to apply training methods, testing is the obvious place to start
.
🫁Ideally, AeT (Aerobic Threshold) should be pushed as close to possible to an athletes LT (Lactate Threshold) in endurance sports. The ability to understand how your body utilizes aerobic energy is important to determine what Zones we are truly working at
.
🫀There are several methods to testing Aerobic Threshold but we believe that we have a system that is clear and simple to understand. Using the PNOĒ cardio-metabolic analyzer allows us to make objective decisions and guide athletes to realize their full potential

Hey all! It’s spring again and I figured now is a good time to reintroduce myself.

I’m Anna, owner and fitter of Naked Cycling. I work with Dr. Kur Sohn at @velofitpt and joined @teamwilpers last fall with virtual spin-bike fits. I’ve been in the bike industry since 2004 and bike fitting since 2013.

Currently, I have three bikes, two cats, and too many plants to count. My passion for fitting has been fed by friends, family, clients and colleagues, and to them I am forever grateful for pushing me and challenging me.

I’m certified in both Trek Precision Fit and Specialized BG and Retül fit, but one thing I’ve discovered in my 8 years of fitting is that the best education is from hands on work and collaborating with other fitters and with physical therapists. One has to be constantly willing to learn and understand the relationship between the bike and body!

If you have any questions about what we at @velofitpt or @teamwilpers do or would like to set up an appointment please reach out! Email is in the bio ✨✌🏼
