Well hasn’t February rounded us up nicely. Halfway through the month.
I became a year older (don’t think wiser though), become a grandparent, and seen my baby brother get married. Oh, and there was also a think called retirement thrown in as well. It was a tough thing to think about. Throw away a lucrative fortnightly salary, to become my own boss, and take the School into the next level. I am indeed excited that that step has occurred. Now enough with the blabbering, get onto the content!
MTDC has been listed in the past as the website of the week and for good reason. Their content is sound, has plenty of base level and advanced thought processes, and can get the message across easily. If you want to move better, then head to this page to read about repeated motions.
Bret Contreras. PhD. Voted best beard of 2016 (well not really, but that beard is definitely rocking). I am always blown away by the level of information Bret produces. This one is definitely up there. If you have a trainer or a coach telling you that you can only squat one way, then please, and with my permission, send this article out. Some people learn. Some people are stuck in their own little way.
Yes. I know that MAS shouldn’t be in strength training. But, if I don’t have a speed heading, then where am I to put it Dear Liza? Maybe under coaching, but lets be honest, not many people get down that far…….
Lars Avemarie to me is the Spock of all things health and fitness. Always learning. Always sharing knowledge.
Diet and Nutrition
5 a day? What the fuck is 5 a day? Ohhhh you mean fruits and vegetables? Sorry. My bad.
We all think we can tell when we are really hungry, but how do we know for sure? Well, click on the link and find out…
Examine once again are my go-to resource. I have learnt so much in my time reading and researching it blows my mind that the majority of their content is free.
Soy is bad!!! It’s worse than sugar!!! Burn the farmers crops! Quick Ma. Grab my pitchfork. Nutrition zealots are as bad, if not worse, than movement zealots. i am glad research such as this gets out there.
I am all for restricting calories when done the right way. But, did you know that it can be quite harmful, especially when you do it day after day, week after week? Let Authority Nutrition provide you some guidance..
The folks over at Precision Nutrition are pretty smart. They want people to have the right information, instead of being lured with the promise of quick and easy fixes. Here they take a look at the Ketogenic Diet, or KD for short.
If this doesn’t change what you think about movement, nothing will.
Sleep deprivation. We all have had it. So, if we have all had it, what can it do to us? Click the link. Read the link. Get to sleep earlier…..
Now. This will indeed make you think. Think how often you have had a week or two of shitty, interrupted sleep, only to get a sore back? The linkages are there.
Iceland. A place where there is Ice and Land. I wonder how they got the name?? What they have also done is found a novel way to reducing teens abusing substances. Marvelous idea really. But because it’s Iceland, and not the US or the UK, we aren’t listening. Such a pity.
Don’t you just love the helpers. Don’t cry. It will get better. Don’t worry. It will go away. How about just loosen up? Yup, gets me annoyed as well….
I love the content that Martin Rooney and the Training for Warriors group puts out. It makes you think about your little place in the sun, and how you can make it better, and involve others as well, so that can also share the goodness. This story does all that.
This will get the tongues wagging no doubt. Instead of going off half cocked, read the article.
Science for Sport is such a great resource for all coaches. If there is anything you want to learn, then go to their page, type in the subject, and I have no doubt they will have something for you.
We all have to learn. With learning comes mistakes. However, what mistakes would you wished you hadn’t made? Are they similar to the ones here?.
This has been sitting for a little while now for me to plough through. If you want a book ot learn more about how to split up training programs for your sports, then get this book. It will answer many questions.
Just do the dishes. Don’t think about your TV program. Don’t think about your cup of tea you are going to make. Just focus on doing the dishes. This is the third time I have read this book, and I continue to pull things from it.
