Why Consistency Matters with Exercise - TRAINING and TRAINING PRINCIPLES | Senior PE TGS | Scoop.it
It's common wisdom that missing a day or two of exercise makes it harder to get back to it the next day, but The New York Times points out that it's not as cut and dried as simple motivation.

Are athletes really getting faster, better, stronger?

Are athletes really getting faster, better, stronger? | Senior PE TGS | 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.

Excellent read on what, where, when and how it happens....and how to make the what/where/when and how respond even better....

Hannah Chappell-Dick's curator insight, June 13, 2013 10:41 AM

So this was definitely for beginners, so it would be very helpful to someone who doesn't yet know about fast and slow twitch muscle fibers or overloading or who is looking to lose weight. A good reference for introducing the topic!

Pre-Race

-epinephrine release: blood rushing to muscles, jitters

Swim

-Swimming take 4x more energy than running that distance

-thermoregulation easier in cool water

-produce ATP with less oxygen: anaerobic glycolysis

-epinephrine dulls discomfort

Bike

-dehydration causes loss in blood volume, less O2 gets to heart

-fat nearly unlimited resource, but won't keep you moving fast.. need electrolytes. and to build a new source of carbs for the run.

Run

-body starts eating muscle tissue for protein: catabolism

Post-Race

-susceptible to sickness due to low amino acid levels

Training and recovery

Hannah Chappell-Dick's curator insight, June 13, 2013 10:39 AM

I struggle with this very badly in my quads every single time I try to do the standing long jump more than 1-2 times. It's caused me to miss multiple days of practice, and my coaches pulled me out of the high jump just in case as well.

SO. DOMS. 2-3 days after. long term health not affected. decreased muscle power. caused by forceful eccentric muscle contractions while a muscle lengthens (downward phase of squats)

Caused by:

-micro tears

-inflammation (causes swelling = oedema)

-increased content of muscle enzymes (?).. cell membranes destroyed (burst) because of the eccentric activity.
