Joe Friel - Updates on Compression Clothing and Block Periodization

Joe Friel - Updates on Compression Clothing and Block Periodization | Things to come | Scoop.it
One of my favorite pastimes is reading sports science research. Most days start with me grabing an abstract from the top of my to-be-read list and seeing what’s new. I know, I’m weird that way. But I expect we are each strange in some way.
Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:

Friel says: "My opinion on compression clothing has not changed since I first wrote about them five years ago. I doubt there is a significant improvement in performance while wearing them. In a triathlon, the time to put them on in T1 is probably greater than any time gained while wearing them. But there may be a post-workout benefit that could speed recovery prior to the next workout or race. I’ll keep watching for this topic in the literature and let you know what I find."

Transparent Armor from NRL; Spinel Could Also Ruggedize Your Smart Phone - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory

Transparent Armor from NRL; Spinel Could Also Ruggedize Your Smart Phone - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory | Things to come | Scoop.it
Imagine a glass window that’s tough like armor, a camera lens that doesn’t get scratched in a sand storm, or a smart phone that doesn’t break when dropped. Except it’s not glass, it’s a special ceramic called spinel that the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has been researching over the last 10 years. 'The advantage is it's so much tougher, stronger, harder than glass,' says Dr. Jas Sanghera, who leads the research.
