Concerned for their health, LAX cleaning crews demand better equipment and training amid coronavirus outbreak
This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.
Cleaning crews, baggage handlers and wheelchair attendants in the forefront of the battle against the spread of the novel coronavirus at the Los Angeles International Airport made a public demand Tuesday for further training and better tools from the companies they’re contracted with.
The SEIU United Service Workers West, which represents more than 7,200 airline service workers in California, accused JetStream Ground Services and S.A.S. Services Group for asking crews to clean planes without the proper equipment and training to handle COVID-19.
On Tuesday morning, union members gathered outside Terminal 4 at LAX to pass out gloves, masks and informational flyers in an effort to “take matters into their own hands.”
The group accused some companies of failing to follow a 2017 L.A. city ordinance that require 16 hours of emergency response training for all airport employees.
The union also said airlines must inform cleaners of ill passengers and provide appropriate gear, adding that crews have the right to call out and stay home if they’re sick or take care of someone ill.
Barbara Gomez said when she was assigned to clean an incoming plane from China on Jan. 29, she alerted her supervisor of her health conditions that could make her vulnerable to contagious disease.
She asked to be transferred to another team, but the supervisor hesitated, Gomez told KTLA.
Anthony Blakely, who’s also tasked to clean cabins, said workers are not equipped with sufficient tools. He also demanded training.
“Give us what we need to fight the new virus,” he said.
In a statement from the union, LAX wheelchair attendant Tim Maddox said: “Now is not the time for irresponsible contractors to be cutting corners. This is about our health, and the health of our entire city and community. If a contractor like S.A.S. is too cheap to be complying with city training requirements, then why are they being allowed to operate at the airport?”
L.A. Councilman Mike Bonin said he planned to address the workers’ concerns by introducing legislation next week intended to improve safety procedures for airport workers. He told KTLA he was alarmed by reports that crews have not received proper training and supply.
S.A.S. has not released a statement on the union’s allegations.
JetStream Ground Services told KTLA it had “always had an abundant supply of safety equipment for all employees to fulfill their daily assignments, even before we were aware of COVID-19.”
Spokesperson Eric Rose also provided photos of safety tools they said were available for its contracted workers.
He said, “We are in constant communication with the airlines and LAWA and want to stress that first and foremost, our priority is always the safety of our employees. We are proud of our employees at LAX and are committed to keeping our employees safe.”
L.A. County officials have confirmed at least two COVID-19 cases involving workers contracted by the Department of Homeland Security to screen passengers at the airport. The county and the city of Long Beach have reported a total of 20 coronavirus cases, including at least 12 who traveled abroad.
LAX handles some 1,600 flights a day.

Thirty-Six Players Selected for U.S. Women’s Training Camp
PHOTO BY JOHN STROHSACKER
SPARKS, Md. — Head coach Jenny Levy and her staff have invited 36 players to a training camp for the U.S women’s national team to be held June 29 through July 1 at USA Lacrosse headquarters. The training camp comes on the heels of a tryout featuring more than 60 players that concluded on June 11.
This is the first of three training camps/competitions for the U.S. women’s team through the remainder of the calendar year. Following this camp, the team will compete at the Fall Classic at USA Lacrosse headquarters from Oct. 14-17. The 2021 calendar wraps up with the team participating in the IWLCA Presidents Cup in Dallas from Nov. 18-21.
Any of the players invited for last week’s tryout will be eligible to be invited to any of the training camps remaining in 2021.
The U.S. team is building towards the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship, which will be hosted by USA Lacrosse from June 29-July 9, 2022 at Towson University. It’s the first time the event has been held in the United States since 2005 and a record 30 nations scheduled to compete. The U.S. has won the last three world championships (2009, 2013 and 2017).
The U.S. women’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Gait (equipment), STX (equipment), Maverik (equipment), Cascade (goalie helmets), Game On (mouth guards), Gilman Gear (goals), Pearl Lacrosse (balls) and DJO (sports braces).
In addition to these partners, Hudl and MedStar Sports Medicine are officials sponsors of the U.S. national team program. Team training is also aided by products from Athletic Republic and Hyperice.
The full list of invitees for the training camp follows:
In addition to the 36 players listed above, the following four players will attend the camp but will be unable to participate due to injuries.
Lacrosse: Training players for speed and strength
My colleagues and I are seeing great players of sport but poorly prepared athletes. Today’s college lacrosse players struggle with stress fractures, orthopedic problems, poor posture, tight hip flexors, immobile thoracic spines, poor training histories and soft-tissue injuries. The lack of seasonal play, early specialization in sports, television, internet misinformation, increased cell phone and video game usage, and elimination of physical education in schools have all led to this growing problem.
To keep these issues from getting worse, we use the offseason to teach athletes to “crawl before they can run.” We emphasize teaching biomechanically clean, coordinated movements rather than the load being lifted.
As such, we start by performing primal exercises in our dynamic warmup and show the athletes how to connect movement throughout their bodies. An example would be a bear crawl, which teaches the athletes coordinated movement with their hips and shoulders to build strength, flexibility and motor control.
The players then learn to create, absorb, and redirect force through proper landing and jumping mechanics, Olympic-style weightlifting, squatting, and sprinting mechanics. All of these efforts combine to increase intermuscular and intramuscular coordination and improve synchronization of the central nervous system, leading to more dynamic athletes.
With these areas addressed, we can press on in the offseason toward improved athlete performance. I played collegiate and professional lacrosse, so I have intimate knowledge of the sport and what it takes to prepare both mentally and physically. This gives me an advantage over other lacrosse strength coaches because I can speak to the athletes on a sport-specific level and, most times, directly to the position they play. It also allows me to better explain what we are trying to accomplish in the weight room and how it will translate onto the field.

Lacrosse players need tremendous strength, power, and flexibility in the kinetic chain. They must be able to maintain an optimum body position in good balance while performing the quick, explosive changes of direction the sport requires. My training philosophy is structured with these factors in mind.
Because lacrosse is a stand-up power sport played in free space, we train our athletes in free space. They work out on their feet using the whole body in a functional and dynamic environment to ensure they utilize every muscle, tendon, and joint in a coordinated and explosive fashion.
We target lifelong wellness during the offseason by taking a holistic approach to developing the healthiest and most complete athletes possible. I utilize and share information from many different fields, such as chiropractic, physical therapy, athletic training, massage therapy, nutrition, biomechanics, functional medicine, weightlifting, and track and field. At UNC, we are fortunate to have access to some of the best clinicians in these fields, and we collaborate with them regularly to ensure our athletes receive cutting-edge treatment.
Injury prevention, improved performance, and overall wellness form the general foundation for our offseason weight room work at the University of Maryland, while the meat of our strength training program employs a variety of strength and power movements. Many of the actions in lacrosse require athletes to move quickly and explosively, so we use several different methods to achieve these athletic properties. Here are some examples.
Exercises that are performed with the athlete’s feet on the ground are more productive than exercises performed while sitting or lying down. This is because applying force against the ground causes an equal and opposite reaction in the direction of the movement. The greater the force a lacrosse athlete can generate against the ground, the faster he can run, and the higher he can jump. Furthermore, training with an athlete’s feet on the ground requires him to stabilize his own body structure, which increases proprioception and strengthens stabilization muscles that reduce the risk of injury. The ground-based movements we utilize include squat variations, dead lifts, and lunges.

Lacrosse athletes benefit from these exercises because they are required to move more than one joint at a time in almost all sporting actions. In addition, research shows that more growth hormone and testosterone are released following multiple-joint exercises, which promotes lean body mass gain. The more lean body mass an athlete can gain, the more force he will produce, and the more effective he’ll be on the field. We work multiple-joint movements with different variations of the power clean, snatches, jerks, and medicine ball throws.
Using Olympic lifts, medicine balls, and plyometrics for explosive training develops the fast-twitch muscle fibers in the body that enable athletes to create power. This is important in lacrosse because athletes are often called upon to generate a lot of force in a short period of time.
Research shows exercises that require multiple-joint actions timed in the proper neuromuscular recruitment patterns are the most productive in developing explosive power. For example, our athletes execute the “jump and pull” motions of a clean and jerk in 0.2 to 0.3 seconds. Timing this allows the athletes and me to get immediate feedback on whether they have enough movement speed to produce power from the ground up, which develops muscular synergy and proprioception that carries over to sporting actions.
Training explosively also causes a greater exertion to the central nervous system, stimulating the production of endogenous hormones. This develops a greater degree of overall lean muscle mass and strength in our athletes.
This is a form of speed training to increase explosive power in which athletes apply maximum force against a barbell through a full range of motion. It teaches players to move light weight quickly throughout an entire movement. Because athletes spend more time under maximum tension using this method, they progress much faster in their development.
We use the squat and bench for compensatory acceleration. Occasionally, we add heavy chains or bands to the bar to give variable resistance, and we do multiple sets of low reps with short rest periods to stimulate fast-twitch muscle firing.
When competing, lacrosse athletes seldom have both feet in contact with the ground at the same time and must be able to move in either direction with equal efficiency. Therefore, single-leg strength is a key element for success. We work on balancing and exploding off one leg with single-leg squat variations, step-ups with knee drive, single-leg good mornings, and Romanian dead lifts.
The skills utilized in lacrosse involve movement in three planes: side to side, forward and backward, and up and down. Lacrosse players must be functionally strong in all three to be successful. Lifting with free weights is the only way to accomplish this objective. Free weights not only develop primary muscles but also the stabilization muscles that help athletes maintain solid joint integrity and promote better body control.
The torso is often neglected in lacrosse training, despite being a critical area for success. By developing strong power lines at the torso, we can greatly decrease the risk of injury. In addition, athletes will be able to improve their body control and be more efficient in performing lifts with a strong core, which will allow them to perform better in competition. I like to use medicine ball circuits to train the core.
Posterior chain development
The posterior chain is of vital importance for lacrosse performance, speed development, and injury prevention. Specifically, it plays a critical role in sprinting during lacrosse actions. To focus on posterior chain development, we implement different variations of Olympic-style weightlifting exercises, Romanian dead lifts, hip thrusts, kettlebell swings, glute/ham raises, and reverse hyperextensions.

90,000 More variety: new functional training equipment | SPORT
Experts talked about functional training as fitness without flaws. Due to its high efficiency, this direction is becoming more and more in demand every year. Ruslan Panov, an expert methodologist and coordinator of the direction of group programs of the federal network of X-Fit fitness clubs, tells about what such classes are good for and how they can be diversified.
All the benefits of functional training are primarily related to the fact that it solves any problems of trainees.Exercises “train” the human nervous system to move the body efficiently – without pain compensation, injury-free, with optimization of energy exchange. Moreover, the neutral position of the spine during exercise allows you to neutralize the compensatory changes that occur in the human body throughout life. This includes problems with posture associated with acquired (for example, due to a sedentary lifestyle) or congenital (birth injuries, cerebral palsy, etc.) patterns of movement and position.The load during functional training is distributed in such a way that the “unbalanced” muscles, falling into the conditions of symmetrical impact, are forced to apply different efforts: the weaker ones start to work harder, the stronger ones perform a stabilizing function, as a result of which the necessary muscle balance is achieved.
That is why functional training according to the patented system of proven training methods X-Fit Smart Fitness is always relevant. The undoubted plus of such exercises is that they are suitable for absolutely everyone, regardless of age, level of training and fitness goals.At the same time, one of the characteristic features of functional training is the ability to use various specialized equipment during the lesson.
“The schedule of X-Fit fitness clubs includes a wide range of functional training with your own body weight and with a basic set of equipment. These are the popular X-Total Pro and Low Core, in addition – numerous authoring programs of our experts in the format of mini-groups, splits and personal training. For example, in our flagship X-Fit Stoleshnikov, hammocks, a functional frame Synrgy360, ViPR and, of course, TRX hinges are available to all club members for group trainings TRX Cardio and Force, HIIT and X-Gravity, ”says Irina Troska, Fitness Director the federal network of fitness clubs X-Fit.
Basic functional bodyweight training can be varied with special equipment that adds a certain type of load: for example, rubber shock absorbers, medicine balls, ViPR rubber pipes. Recently, fitness equipment with a dynamically changing center of gravity has been very popular: rubber balls filled with water, body bars with metal balls inside, weights with sand, inclined boards with In-Trinity textile bands from Matrix, creating a unique environment for unstable work, Reebok CoreBoard , ETS, Bosu, TRX hinges.The same equipment can be used for both amplification and relief.
Exercise example with functional training equipment
Lumberjack with ViPR
During the exercise, ViPR is held like a great ax. On the lunge, you need to start it behind the forward thigh with a rotation of the torso, at a turn of 180 degrees, push it up in front of you. Since the exercise is asymmetrical, work with symmetrical approaches.The pace can be varied from slow for setting the technique to maximum in order to obtain anaerobic exercise.
Swing on hinges TRX
Combination of basic pull with a long bar on medium line lengths. Straining the press and back, at a slow pace, pull the body to the loops, continue to extend the elbows and, pressing on the lines, push your arms forward until the whole body is straightened.
Stand on the board in your normal squat position (feet hip-width apart) and line up your neutral body perpendicular to the board, not the floor.While maintaining this angle of the body, perform squats without compensating pelvic displacements.
Fire Reebok CoreBoard

Dr. Luke KnoxLuke Knox, a neurosurgeon specializing in spine surgeries, included David Back Trainers in his Total Spine Clinic in 2016. This post provides a quick overview of Dr. Knox’s training program and its impact on improving the quality of life for patients at his clinic.
Dr. Knox and the doctors at his clinic have long been advocates of non-surgical treatment.Previously, they used training equipment of a different brand, then in 2015 they got acquainted with the concepts of restoring the functioning of the spine and shoulder joints from the manufacturer of the David exercise equipment. It took some time to study a new approach, scientific evidence of its viability and actually test the training equipment. The choice was made in favor of “David”, since then these simulators have become the main tool in the therapy of the patients of the clinic.
“After starting work at Davids, we began to treat more than 100 patients a day through our rehabilitation program.After 6 months, we stopped using any other rehabilitation equipment and increased the number of David’s simulators in order to have time to serve all the patients who come in. ”
The Total Spine Clinic accepts patients from insurance companies under paid contracts for rehabilitation and prevention, and also provides self-supporting training services. In 2018, a second clinic was opened in a neighboring state. For the second clinic, two sets of back trainers and shoulder trainers were purchased, and later knee and hip trainers were added.Clinic staff enjoy working with a handy tool like smart simulators. Therapy with such a device frees up time for wider patient coverage.

Simulators help to improve the results of surgical operations, and in some cases, avoid surgery
Almost everyone, with a few exceptions, is a candidate for a training therapy program. Most people have mild to moderate abnormalities in the development of the intervertebral muscles.Dr. Knox examines each patient in order to understand whether surgery is definitely needed or whether it is better to undergo preliminary training therapy first and, after evaluating the results, decide whether surgery is necessary. There have already been many cases when patients canceled a previously prescribed operation after undergoing preparatory therapy on simulators. For example, a patient was diagnosed with cervical stenosis, but after a training program, the need for surgery disappeared. “We also managed to help patients with severe forms of scoliosis and stenosis.We are always very happy when it is possible to prove in practice that active rehabilitation significantly changes people’s lives for the better and helps patients avoid surgeries. ”
“We manage to help patients with severe forms of scoliosis and stenosis.”
The “EVE” software, developed by the manufacturer “David”, records the strength indicators and the limits of the range of motion at the beginning of the training period, in the middle and at the end. The individual scores are compared to the regulatory averages from an extensive database.In addition, all metrics for each workout are recorded. “At the end of the course of rehabilitation training, we will definitely sit down with the patient and watch reports from the computer system about his performance at the beginning of the course. People see changes in their level of strength, joint mobility, and how much their muscle balances have improved. Benchmarking reports are a great tool for confirming that there are results, and they are also a working motivator for people who come to us. ”
Active approach is the future of restorative medicine
The approach to spinal rehabilitation is changing.The need to record and document all aspects of the rehabilitation process is growing. This is necessary in order to accurately understand whether the patient’s condition improves during the course of therapy, and if so, how much.
“A new type of therapy helps us to offer people an individualized approach, which is exactly what they need. Thanks to the computer system that controls the simulators, our physiotherapists and exercise therapy specialists, as well as surgeons who send candidates for surgery to us for preparatory procedures, are able to closely monitor the patients’ exercises and make the necessary changes.This helps us provide people with a personalized experience, which is exactly what they need. ”

Tips for choosing an exercise machine for the home
Regular exercise is essential for health – this is an indisputable fact. It is extremely difficult for a busy resident of a big city to find time to visit a fitness club, and the cost of a subscription can be high.In this situation, you can do differently – buy a home simulator in order to be able to give your body a load at any time. If you decide to create a gym at home, then the question may arise – what to choose?
Most people move little during the day, which negatively affects not only their figure, but also their health. To overcome the consequences of physical inactivity in conditions of limited time and money, aerobic exercise will allow. Aerobic work helps lower blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart failure, improves lung function, helps to overcome stressful conditions of the body, insomnia, and also a remedy for excess weight.In addition, you can do aerobics while watching TV, talking on the phone, etc. Aerobic movements for 15-40 minutes soothe, oxygenate the blood and tone the muscles of the body.
And so you need a simulator.
What is a simulator? This word comes from the English “to train” – to train. Actually, this is an educational and training device that allows you to develop muscles, various motor qualities of the body, contributing to its overall strengthening.How to choose a simulator that will help you achieve the desired result? The main thing is to decide what kind of result you need to achieve.
There are two main types of exercise equipment: strength and cardio.
If you want to lose weight, tone up, get rid of excess reserves of subcutaneous fat – you need a cardio equipment, if you want to develop muscles – strength.
Which simulator to choose? Both types are useful in their own way, give good results with regular use.Why, then, very often, at first, we begin to exercise with enthusiasm, but after a short time the simulator will be pushed into the far corner, and silently begin to be covered with a stable layer of dust? Is laziness always to blame?
No, laziness is not always to blame. Another reason for stopping classes is as follows: there is no desired result, which may mean that the simulator of the wrong type may have been purchased.
How to choose an exercise machine for the home that will help you lose weight or build muscle mass, which will be convenient to use and enjoyable? Let’s move on to the detailed instructions.
We have already said above – clearly define your goal. What is needed: lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, improve tone? A well-defined goal will help narrow your search.
Analyze what kind of physical activity is most enjoyable for you? This is important – after all, classes should be enjoyable, otherwise each workout will be perceived as almost torture. For example, if you don’t like walking up stairs, then stepper classes will definitely not inspire.If walking is a pleasure, the treadmill will only delight. Agree, if the training is enjoyable, the training will be more frequent – the desired result will come much faster.
How to choose a simulator for your home without unnecessary frustration – decide on a budget. Is it worth buying a home super trendy and expensive, yielding to admonitions of advertisements, or a huge expensive sports setup that will take up a lot of space? I think no.The range of prices is very significant. It is quite possible – calmly, thoughtfully – to choose a suitable model at an affordable price.
Which simulator should you choose for your home in order to save your budget, but at the same time get an effective assistant? For example, you can make a basic purchase – an aerobic or strength training machine, say, an ellipse or a bench, and then add a set of inexpensive exercise equipment to it – dumbbells, weights, a barbell.
Which home simulator is the best – a simple or almost a spaceship? After all, modern home installations are often equipped with such a long list of all kinds of functions that a little more – and they can surf the universe.Think – do you need all this technique? All these heart rate sensors, timers, monitors – further down the list. Do you need them, finance allows? Buy. Not needed – buy a simple, normal, basic working simulator.
How to choose the right simulator if it is difficult to make the right choice? Ask questions to the seller. Ask a lot of questions. Ask about the purpose of each “gadget”, ask about the guarantee, is there a return option, how often breakdowns occur, what is the cost of repairs.Also, ask if it is possible to buy a simulator “for rent” – some dealers give customers the opportunity to train for some time, most often one month, then, if the simulator does not fit, return it to the store. Also check what the warranty period is. Usually it is one year, but if you make a purchase via the Internet, be sure to check its term, the possibility of service.
Before buying, consider where to install your machine.Measure the area that you are ready to allocate to your “sports friend”, check how comfortable it will be to practice. Check for ventilation or electrical outlets near the machine. Put a rubber mat under the simulator – your neighbors and the simulator will feel much better.
Which simulator is better for losing weight?
Why did we decide to highlight this issue? Because most often home exercise equipment is bought to lose weight.The most effective are the cardio group simulators: steppers, exercise bikes, ellipses, rowing machines, treadmills. Let’s talk about the beneficial properties of each type.
This simulator allows you to work out a large muscle group. Another plus – during training, deep breathing improves the enrichment of muscles with oxygen, fat goes away faster.
You can train in any mode – walking, jogging, running. During classes, you can use various weighting materials, which allows you to change the load, make your workouts more varied.
During training, the exercise bike gives the maximum cardio load, this significantly increases metabolism, accelerates weight loss. Exercise effectively burns fat in the thigh area, the rest of the muscle groups are not used much. But the increased cardio load actively speeds up the metabolism, which results in overall weight loss. Conclusion – training should be intense.
This is the simplest of the cardiovascular equipment. Its limitations – only the muscles of the legs and pelvis work.Classes improve the work of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Weight loss is occurring, but not very active.
This simulator promotes excellent ventilation of the lungs, there is an increased saturation of the body with oxygen. Workouts involve the shoulder muscle groups. This simulator is hardly suitable for a girl; it will help a young man to become the owner of beautiful, courageous shoulders.
The most effective weight loss trainer is the ellipsoid.This is a real training complex that combines a stepper, a treadmill, an exercise bike. During training on an ellipsoid, almost all muscle groups work – these are the muscles of the shoulder girdle, abdominal muscles, pelvic muscles, thighs, legs. Ellipse promotes effective weight loss, strengthens health, improves overall tone, body lines. There are no age restrictions or general physical fitness requirements for classes. The weight goes off very well.
Strength training equipment
These are barbells, dumbbells, wall bars, benches and large athletic complexes.Strength machines vary in appearance and characteristics, but their task is the same – to tighten the weakest muscles and give an isolated load to those parts of the body that need to be corrected. This is done by lifting weights using different muscle groups. Remember to start with light loads. Repeated exercises, even with small dumbbells, strengthen muscles without increasing their mass.
Which is the best exercise machine for the home?
We discussed how to choose a simulator, what kind of load and effect different simulators give, which of them is most effective.Now you yourself can decide which simulator will be most useful.
There is one more very important question that is inseparable from any physical activity: proper nutrition. None of the most intense, persistent workouts will give the desired result if your diet is wrong and your daily routine is chaotic.
Add proper eating behavior to your workouts – your health will improve, your figure will become attractive and sexy.

90,000 What equipment is used for football?
Brazilian soccer legend Pele played as a kid with a grapefruit or rag ball, and even today’s pick-up games with a real ball may rely on plastic cones or driftwood as heads. While the list of minimalist football equipment allows it to be played around the world, including in the poorest townships, the league’s official and internationally approved matches follow the equipment rules set by FIFA, the international governing body of football.
Football for Seniors and 12+ requires two goals 8 feet wide and 24 feet wide, draped with a net. Slim, flexible flags mark the four corners of the field. Younger players can use smaller targets, as small as 4 feet by 6 feet for players under 6, and # 3 or # 4 balls, while the adult ball size is # 5. Summer tournaments with five or less players use small, portable targets similar to the U-6 size.
Mandatory shields protect players from accidental impacts and heavy impacts. Official league games also require the wearing of numbered jerseys, shorts, shoes, and long socks to cover the folds. The referee must inspect and approve other equipment, such as throwing weapons, although state football federations may prohibit this altogether. Protective headgear, face masks and knee and hand protectors made of soft materials are permitted in accordance with FIFA rules, as are goggles.Shoes must match the playing surface; on artificial surfaces indoors, it is forbidden to use open spikes, for which special shoes are required indoors.
Radio technology that allows communication between players and technical personnel is prohibited. Clothing and equipment may not contain political slogans. You may not wear jewelry, including necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather straps, and elastic bands. Jewelry must be removed and cannot be covered with tape.Wedding rings, however, are usually acceptable. Judges also cannot wear any jewelry other than watches.
Goalkeepers need gloves that protect their hands from hitting the ball and provide a firm grip on the typically synthetic surface of a modern ball. They must also wear a jersey of a different color for the field players of either team.
