Body weight training

I know this is not triathlon oriented but you can apply the princaples to any sport or fitness routine

Tiger Woods is off to an incredible start in 2008, winning 3 tournaments in
3 starts. He did it again this weekend, winning another tournament, but its
no surprise based on his physical strength and mobility.

Tiger looks like he gained even more muscle in the off-season,
Tiger is doing this all without steroids.

Tiger is physically dominating the sport. Heck, he’s even driven Phil
Mickelson to start exercising and to lose weight. Phil looks so much better
now that he has lost 20 pounds.

I’d be very interested to see Tiger’s workout program. Is there anything
fancy in it? Or is it just the basics? How does he gain strength without
sacrificing mobility? That is one of the biggest mistakes
most “bodybuilding” type routines make…if a golfer/ triathlete did bodybuilding type
training, it would most likely ruin his game just as easily as getting fat
and out of shape.

Does Tiger use a lot of bodyweight exercises? Does he do cardio or interval
training? If anyone has the inside scoop on that training program, let me
know.

Now you certainly don’t need to be a powerlifter, bodybuilder, or gymnast to
be a good Triathlete… but as you can see by the physiques on many other men and
women competitors you do have to be lean and fit , you can’t let your strength or mobility be the limiting factor .

So you need to train…

…..3…….. Great things things to do that break up trash Ks’ and endless laps are…

1) Use a variety of bodyweight exercises to work on your strength and
mobility. This can be part of your warmup or can compose your entire
workout. Like I said, you don’t need to be a powerlifter to be a golfer or triathlete

First, start with the basics like pushups, bodyweight squats, inverted
bodyweight rows, stick-ups, lunges, and the plank and side plank for your
abs.

Then once you’ve mastered those, move on to spiderman pushups, spiderman
climbs, mountain climbers, one-leg romanian deadlifts, stability ball leg
curls, hanging leg raises, pullups, chinups, and decline pushups.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of bodyweight exercises you can do to burn
fat, get stronger, and improve your mobility. This will help you stay longer
and stay efficient on the race course.

Plus, it will increase your stamina and focus late in the game – combined
with good nutrition of course.

2) Work with a good swim coach to identify your weaknesses. Is your lack of
hip mobility messing up your stroke. Is your work posture ruining your
running mobility? Etc.

3) Eat right for fat loss and mental energy. You won’t get tired on the
course. I believe this is one of the most under-rated aspects of sport performance,

and I do not just mean supplement scoffing at my running club there are at least 7 vegetarians, not eating junk, Plus, good nutrition allows you to recover, and have higher endurance.

I am tending more and more to a majority of RAW food selection.

If you follow these three steps, you’ll have a better body, you’ll burn fat,
and you’ll be a champ. Use your bodyweight, not machines, to become
fit like a performance machine

Leather Hiking Boots

Whether you are thinking of going for a short day hiking trip, or want to spend a couple of days in the beautiful creations of Mother Nature, a good pair of comfortable leather hiking boots will make your trip safer and more enjoyable.

 

Brands of Hiking Boots

Some of the popular brands that retail leather hiking boots are Nevados, Timberland, Danner, and Colombia. These boots can be found commonly sold at your local departmental store, usually in the sports section or outdoor section.

Most of these boots are waterproof, since they are made of leather, but fairly heavy, again because of the material. However, these boots really provide essential protection for your feet, and while the investment in getting a good pair is significant, it can make the difference between having an enjoyable day out hiking, or having your day with nature in ruins.

Shopping for Hiking Shoes and Boots

When looking for a pair hiking boots it is important to make sure that you get the right size. Most of the time when you go hiking, you will probably be wearing thick socks (for further comfort and protection), so it might be a good idea for you to bring along a pair of thick socks when you go shopping for your boots.

Breaking In Hiking Boots

It is also important to note that hiking shoes need to be “broken in”. In fact, the sturdier and stiffer the boot originally is, the harder it is for you to break in the boot. However, the great thing about leather is that since it is so sturdy, when the boot does get broken in, it is going to be really comfortable for you, since the shoe literally “fits exactly to your feet”… and this makes it ultra comfortable for you.

What I would recommend is that you wear the new boots to walk around your home, or in your trips out shopping… until you are comfortable with the feel of the shoe, before you bring it for a hike. The worst thing you would want is to be unused to your boots when you are in uneven terrain.

Another point to note is that leather boots tend to become stiff when stored in colder temperatures. So if you would like to keep your broken in leather boots nice and comfortable all the time, be sure to store them in a place where it is slightly higher than room temperatures.

Another of the South Beach Diet tips, is that you should drink plenty of water during the South Beach Diet. Why? Because by drinking plenty of water, you will feel fuller.

Even though the exercise is not a requirement for the South Beach Diet, you should try to incorporate some sort of exercise a couple of times a week during the diet. Just like the other South Beach Diet tips mentioned this will help to speed up your weight loss and will eventually promote overall fitness.

Does it really pay to live well?

 

This is a really good number considering that life expectancy in the early 1900 was about 47+ years. The increase is without a doubt as a result of better medical, religious and family influences. People are more knowledgeable about these factors now than ever before.

1. The number one reason why it pays to live well is that you have the opportunity to live far beyond the life expectancy figure. With good medicine and awareness of simple things like knowing when to go to the doctor, and know how to count calories, cholesterol and blood pressure, although it sounds simple their knowledge can prevent major health problem.

2. It is not enough to live but to live a high quality live. To maintain a good quality of live one must exercise on a regular basis, eat well and drink a lot of fluid mostly water. Exercising can boost your heart rate and can help you to burn those calories. You will feel good without a doubt.

3. Another reason why it pays to live well when you are young is because you will surely reap what you sowed at young age when you get old. Ask yourself the kind of old age that you want. One that every body want to be around or run away from? There are specific things to do in your 30s and 40s that can help maintain your memory, and good self like exercising and eating foods rich in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids such as blueberries, salmon, fruits and nuts can actually keep your brain healthy.

4. A healthy body feels like a million dollars, it actually is. If you are in doubt pay a visit to any ICU (intensive care unit) of any hospital and you will be thankful if you are somewhat healthy. Can some of our habits prevent us from achieving a healthy body? Yes, some habits like smoking and alcoholism. Smoking and alcoholism is simply bad for you, it is not possible to achieve a full healthy body if you are dependent or any drug. If you have not started on any of these drugs please don’t start, if you have or you are in it quit although quitting is very hard but it is achievable with good know how.

5. You have a better chance of making money if you are in a good health. You would agree with me that it is not easy to make money. Don’t listen to anybody that tells you that you can make money sleeping from day one. To make money be prepared to work very hard at least at the beginning, it might ease out over time. You definitely have to be in a good health to make and enjoy the money. Keep off the bad habits and adopt the good ones, changing habits are not easy but they are doable with the right knowledge.
6. You can only be the best that you can if your body soul and mind are working in harmony. To achieve harmony you must include GOD in the equation because he can bring peace into your life. The greater things in life comes after you have achieved peace and harmony, are you trying to quit smoking, lose weight, eat right or exercise more, with GOD all things are possible. Connect with him and see why it pays to live well.

7. Have more good and reliable friends and family. People are naturally attracted to the best or the good in everything. If you are intelligent, smart, talented, gifted, or simply a very good person people want to associate and relate with you and do things with you, business, relationship or anything else. You will know that it pays to live well when everybody wants you.

 

8. Experience happiness beyond all boundaries. It is simply not easy to quit a bad habit but when you do, the joy and happiness lasts forever. Do you have anyone in your life that needs help, you can share in their joy by helping them quit. Simple words of encouragement and advice or showing them where to find good resource that will help them quit is more than enough.

10 Ways To Keep Your New Year’s Resolution.

Many of us make a new year’s resolution each year but few of us actually keep it long enough to see the benefit. We’ve all done it, struggling to keep the resolution for only a few days, make ourselves miserable, and lapse back into our old habits. So, how can a person make and keep a resolution? I think following these tips and advice will help you to keep any resolution or goal.

(1). Set realistic goals: Pick resolutions that you can accomplish and pick a time limit in which you can accomplish it. Sometimes setting too high a goal and not being able to carry them out leaves us with discouraging and disappointing feeling.

(2). Choose resolutions that you have been thinking about for some time: Resolutions should be planned well ahead of time. Last minute resolution is harder to keep than those that had been thought about some for time.

 

(3). Develop a Plan: Find a plan that will work for you and that you can stick to. Separate you plan into small steps like inch-by-inch step or one day at a time. Give each step a time period, still being flexible about it. Instead of focusing too much on the overall goal, focus instead on the smaller steps. This will help you to see the progress you have made.

(4). Don’t forget your resolution: Write down the resolution and why you want it. Post it on visible areas like the mirror and fridge. This will help you visualize your resolution all day long. Find a way to remind yourself of your goals and find a way to record your progress.

(5). Be brave: It takes courage to move out of your comfort zone. Be mindful that the old patterns want to pull you right back. Be confident in yourself that you can make the change and commit to it after all people like you do it all the time. Focus on what you want to achieve, and all the wonderful things that the achievement will do for you.

(6). Seek support from others: Talk about your resolution. People who are most successful at changing their habits don’t try to do it alone. Tell friends and family how they can best support you in your efforts. Find other people who have similar goals and motivate each other.

(7). Expect setbacks: Because resolution is a process and not a one time effort, temptations and relapses become an integral part of it. It’s important to anticipate them and make plan for dealing with them. For example if your resolution is the run everyday, what will you do if it rains?

(8). Accept that mistakes happen: Sometimes we slip on our resolution. Don’t let any slip cause you to quit. Mistakes happen, failure is caused. Even if you have to start you plan at the beginning again, don’t quit. Be flexible and not absolute, think of your resolution not as an obligation but something you want to do.(9). Review and re-evaluate: Once a month or at least a few times throughout the year, review how you’ve been fairing on your plan. Be honest with yourself and change your plan, if needed.

(10). Reward yourself: Success breeds success. Take credit for your success when you achieve a resolution. After you’ve made a change, you’ll feel the passion because you have ventured out of your comfort zone and succeeded, you’re then motivated to make more changes. Reward as small as patting yourself on the back makes a huge difference.
