What we are watching when we watch elite sports is a contest among wildly disparate groups of people, who approach the starting line with an uneven set of genetic endowments and natural advantages.

ACC Human Performance/Health Sciences: No Train No Gain - TRAINING PRINCIPLES & METHODS

ACC Human Performance/Health Sciences: No Train No Gain - TRAINING PRINCIPLES & METHODS | Performance improvement | Scoop.it
Intensity- n. the extreme magnitude or amount of strength, force, energy, or feeling that something has.  The word, intensity, is commonly used by people to describe the degree to which something is challenging or difficult, just like the dictionary defines it as.  This is no different when it comes to describing a workout.  Many people run in the other direction when they hear the words, “vigorous exercise” or “intense workout”.  No pun intended.  However, in the fitness world, the word intensity is used for different purposes.  Further, the benefits of participating in regular vigorous exercise are becoming more and more apparent.

Are athletes really getting faster, better, stronger? | Performance improvement | Scoop.it
When you look at sporting achievements over the last decades, it seems like humans have gotten faster, better and stronger in nearly every way. Yet as David Epstein points out in this delightfully counter-intuitive talk, we might want to lay off the self-congratulation. Many factors are at play in shattering athletic records, and the development of our natural talents is just one of them.
