The Scientific 7-Minute Workout

The Scientific 7-Minute Workout | Performance Improvement | Scoop.it
In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science.

50 Tips for Serious Athletes - TRAINING METHODS

50 Tips for Serious Athletes - TRAINING METHODS | Performance Improvement | Scoop.it

50 Training Tips for Serious Athletes - Here's a couple of examples....

 

1. Wanna get faster for your sport? You need to sprint. Work on your acceleration first with short sprints of 5-25 yards. Later on, extend those distances to 40-60 yards or more.

 

6. If you're looking for a great way to work speed, leg strength, technique, and conditioning all in one workout, look no  further than hill sprints.

Hill sprints can be done anytime and anywhere there's a big scary hill. For early off-season workouts there really is no better way to build a base in each of the aspects listed above. Find a 40-60 yard hill and rip it!

This supports my claim that "diets" don't work.  Learning to live a healthy lifestyle wins all the time.
