Is there a cell phone, blackberry or other device that has bluetooth capability turned on near you or your Wii? If so, turn off the bluetooth or remove the unit. That helped us.

What are the different ways to prevent shin splints pain?


Here are the different ways to prevent shin splints pain:

1. Strengthen your hips- The best exercises for preventing shin splints are basic squats, deadlifts and lunges. But, your focus should be on using your glutes.
2. Minimize using machines- Machine based exercises are some of the least effective for treating shin splints. The reason is because most machine-based exercises are performed while sitting down and in an apparatus that provides all of the stability for you.
When you run you're standing not sitting. So, your own body has to stabilize itself as you are on one leg the majority of the time. If you aren't training the actual movements and positions similar to running then you are making yourself prone to injuries to your shins, ankles, knees, hips and lower back.
3. Stop running on the treadmill- Treadmills are a great piece of equipment to run indoors or while you watch TV at the gym. But, if you are trying to avoid shin splints then you'll want to avoid the treadmill as much as you can and run on a solid surface instead.
Treadmills operate with a belt so it's harder to get a solid push off the ground because it's moving underneath you. When you run on a solid surface like outdoors you can push off the ground which also helps activate the hips more effectively than on a moving surface.
4. If using a treadmill use incline rather than speed- If your only option is using a treadmill then keep the speed down a bit from your normal pace and substitue by increasing the incline slightly.
Running on an incline can help reduce shin splint pain because you naturally have to push off the ground harder using your hips to move uphill. When running on a flat surface your shin muscles can take over since the hips aren't forced to work very hard to move your body.
5. Use effective training combos- There are a number of exercises and sequences that can help you prevent shin splint pain if you know how to do them.

How is active wear different than regular clothing?


Activewear is designed to suit the needs of active people. The clothing is light weight so it won't hinder the movement of the athlete. It also addresses thermal insulation. Some athletes need to keep cool while others kept warm. Moiosture-wicking fabrics are also important to move sweat away from the body in order for it to evaporate. For example, spandex is used to get rid of sweat.

Why is lights blinking on wii controller


that means that the wii remote it out of reach (the light that human eyes cannot see is not seen) or you don't have the sensor plugged in,
or the black thing on top is dirty, and you need to clean it for it to work.
(this won't help if your wii is not responding to the wii remote.)

Wii controller won't work with gamecube game in wii console


Gamecube games don't have the proper coding installed on the discs in order to receive commands from the Wiimote. You'll have to have a Gamecube controller to play Gamecube games even on the Wii console.

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.

I bought the Wii active 2 program and most of the program works fine but when I do exercises that involve the stretch bands and bending over the program keeps telling me to lower my arms when they are as...


Hello,

I understand that it will work without the sensor bar. But, the reason why there is a sensor bar is that it needs to read the activity that is happening around it. It worked without the sensor bar while you did some exercises but it didn't when you bend over because the wii needs more sensory activity with that certain movement.

The functionality of the wii in detecting the movement is not full when the sensor bar is removed. I suggest you put in the sensor bar while doing all the exercises. If it doesn't work, just let me know by leaving a message in this thread.

Thanks,

Carlo

We fit is reading our movements backwards. For


Ok, here's what I did to solve the problem. When I used a game/exercise that was backward (meaning you had to lean to the right to get the Mii to move left)...I would simply turn the balance board around backward and "wala" it worked!! But of course, you have to remember to turn the board back around when using other games/exercises that didn't have this problem. It was so much better than trying to do everything backward!! Hope this helps!
