Discussion: Do you use wearable fitness technology when you work out

Iím going to be involved in a research project with my local university to study the reliability of wearable fitness technology. Studies at this university have only been conducted on younger groups. They want to study how seniors use this technology for their performance goals and if the information is accurate. Ití looks like promising and timely research given recent news that Apple is looking into getting into health care. I canít imagine their watch technology wonít be a center piece. Anyone use iwearable fitness technology and what do you measure. Me personally I measure my resting heart rate, and my heart rate when working out and the elevation change measurements. Some features I donít use are the calorie expenditure and measuring steps taken.

Discussion: shaved bats

A couple observations. I can't speak to shaved bats or PED's. I can speak a bit on performance. For anyone to add 30-40 pounds of muscle especially a 70 plus year old would be a monumental task. I'm close to obtaining my fitness trainer license and my studies tell me adding that kind of muscle would require a very specific regimen not available to most. Most likely someone that age could change diet, add strength and power training and lose 20 pounds of fat, add 8-10 pounds of muscle and significantly change their look even at that age. I've seen a number of 65-70 year old players pound the ball. Mike your one of them.

Wolfman if a 70 year old asked me to train them to add 40 pounds of muscle I would politely decline I would have no idea how to proceed.

I hit some balls the other day I have not swung a bat in 4 years . Used an Adiddas Melee from a friend forgot how much fun hitting is.

Never say never.

Discussion: Lower back problems

Armiho211

About 6 years ago I was scheduled for back surgery. As a last resort I asked for additional therapy. I was sent to a rehab clinic that specialized in Pilates. Long story short we cancelled the surgery and I don't have many issues except when I over do it. I continue to do Pilates with an instructor 2-3 times a week. Anyone that asks me I always suggest talking with your doctor and see if he or she will recommend Pilates. If you can get 10 sessions the information and education on your core is worth the investment. Make sure your doctor is involved. I have not found much that would qualify as over doing it by the way. Good luck back pain sucks.

Discussion: In your whole softball career who was the individual(s) (coach, player, relative, etc) who had the most impact on your approach, development and how you play the game? And why?

Stick love this. I started playing back in Pittsburgh in the early 70's. I played with a men's team when I was still in high school at the Mifflin Club. I was asked to play for the US Steel team when I graduated from high school. I was going to be given a job giving out parts for maintenance never took the job went to college and moved to Los Angeles. While still in high school played against Paul Tomasavich. I watched everything he did. Best lesson I was a home run hitter back then and quickly learned when you hit one act like you did it all the time keep your head down and get into your dugout quickly. The other big lesson it's OK to lose big and beat a team big. Play the game out don't show up the other team and put the game away when you get the chance. Tomasavich was the best softball player I've ever been on the field with.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Pttcher22 I can vouch for attending the meeting. About 10 years ago myself and another gentleman attended the meeting in Tucson we wanted to pitch the 40 division. SSUSA at the time had a sparsely attended 40 tournament more as a side show. We got an audience in front of all the associations including UTRIP, ASA, SPA and SSUSA. Our proposal was to offer the division full time including ratings, and offering memberships. We got laughed out except for one SSUSA. ASA at the time was the king of the 40 division. In 2005 I think we had 5 or 6 teams in the 40's this year it was probably their fastest growing division and probably had well over 50 teams. They obviously listened. If you want the 1-1 count do what they told in the post we did and it worked.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Steve remember Derek Williams from Vegas heard he turned 50 and started hitting with the seniors. I forget who told me he was hitting some jaw dropping bombs.

Traits revolving power outages? We're like two feet from the hoover dam we have probably the most stable power situation in the country. I've lived in Vegas for 12 years and don't remember ever losing power.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

How about another spin on this. Senior softball I believe works with the Wounded Warriors. There are 3 tournaments in the next 4-6 months that are well attended Phoenix, Florida and the Tournament of Champions. Maybe the brothers attend each and have a home run derby with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors. Win/Win for everyone. Sounds more productive than posting unproductive stuff.

Discussion: Anyone find relief for piriformis syndrome?

Bogie a couple things I do. I use a foam roller daily you can find them at any good sporting goods store, when I was in rehab it was Pilates based I swear by Pilates and google the figure 4 stretch it really helps stretch the muscles in that area. Good luck. Tony advice is really good same principle as using a foam roller except the balls go deeper.

Discussion: Shoulder replacement

Birdie curious what your doctor said. I'm going to have a shoulder replacement sometime in the next few months. I made the decision to go through with it after consulting with a top shoulder doctor in Los Angeles. I'm working with doctors at the Kerlan-Jobe clinic. I don't have a set date that will be determined in mid January. I'm working right now to up my conditioning, come in at a light weight with the hopes of speeding up the recovery time. If you decided to have the surgery it would certainly be helpful probably to both of us to stay in contact misery loves company or something like that. I got nothing left of my shoulder joint for conventional surgery, I have metal in there from a previous surgery 30 years ago and it migrated the MRI revealed that between the spurs and metal everytime I moved the arm it cut something. Frampton your thoughts were appreciated when making my decision.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

It may not be Sunset. I live in Las Vegas there is something going around the Valley just as you are describing. I have several Doctor friends and they are internal medicine and they are seeing this all over. Someone I work with 30 years old just spent a day in the hospital with the exact same symptoms described and was diagnosed with a GI tract viral infection (lower intestine). He started with symptoms Tuesday landed in the hospital Thursday and yesterday started to eat solid foods.

Discussion: Growth of the 40 division

I was looking at the number of teams in the 40 division coming to Las Vegas this year and was happy to see that 45 teams are listed. SSUSA has done an amazing job at growing this age group over the past 8 years. I played in the 40 division in 2005 and we had 5 teams. Out of curiosity I checked the ASA website and they had 33 teams for their year end event in 2005. This year ASA had 5 and SSUSA now is the tournament to attend. A number of years a group of us were invited to speak about the 40's at the senior convention in Tucson and we pitched the 40's to SSUSA, SPA, LVSSA, UTRIP and ASA which was the king of the 40's back then. The biggest excuse we heard from the associations (except ASA) was that 40's were not seniors (probably true), our response was eventually we would be and if you build it they would come and more importantly stay with whomever figured it out. Looking back the 40 division was my favorite time to play.
