building work threshold during Super Bowl week

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

For those embarking on a New Year’s resolution or for that matter any new initiative in health, fitness or athletic development, one of the most challenging elements is learning how to “work hard” and avoid common distractions.

“Working hard” is a deeply problematic issue in a modern society rife with conveniences. Though there is no shortage of “intense” exercise videos or at-least training regimes that will note how oh-so rugged their system is, few muster “working hard” outside of the gymnasium. While I have respect for anyone who is dedicated towards their exercise goals, the real work is by those who work highly stressful or manual labour jobs before ruthlessly attacking their workouts. Little general physical preparation (GPP) is needed when your day is spent “on the job” or say laying brick, roofing or any number of physically demanding jobs as well as taking care of a family.

accelerating gains during Super Bowl week

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Akin to a thief in a night who creeps into steal your hard earned savings, those trying to develop healthy lifestyle choices can fall victim to dietary distractions of this unique time of year. In addition to the winter doldrums that effect so many, Super Bowl week can potentially scuttle many resolution efforts for those trying to change their diet and exercise habits.

For those who mounted the challenge of establishing a healthier approach to exercise and diet with their new year’s resolution, each day has been a small brick in the foundation. Without a doubt no day has been an easy one but layered together they have started building a “wall” of a healthy lifestyle. Though growing in strength and slowly becoming more formidable, for most that “mortar” is far from set and new lifestyle choices are without question susceptible to “attacks”.

avoiding training flaws during Super Bowl week

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Throughout the health, fitness and sports conditioning community much of the attention focuses upon natural targets of the correct approach to diet and exercise as well as pitfalls in the modern lifestyle. Both of the approaches are naturally correct but there is a potential flaw when it lacks a basis of “reality”, such that none of us live in a perfect world scenario and amongst the daily plan of “healthy living” there is a minefield of problems at every corner. Whether that is the stress of your career, home life or scholastic studies, “the unexpected” can always be expected.

Within the world of sport seasoned coaches spend a tremendous amount of time planning and coordinating athlete’s development but equally know there are tremendous roadblocks ahead during each training year. Part of these concerns are natural with a young athletes maturation both physically and emotionally but part of this “expectation of the unexpected”. Though much of the effort is spent on areas to manage correctly, as in athletic development, sports mastery and learning how to manage a proper diet, certain parts of the year can derail the best laid plans.

Connectivity across the world has radically shifted forward due to technological improvements.

building the better moto athlete

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

The situation is a constant within the moto scene where the continuous grind of riding the thin line between success and disaster sees the unexpected raises its ugly head. Accidents never happen when you expect it but sneak up and before there is a chance to respond you are rag doll in natures “washing machine”, helplessly tumbling towards injury.

There are times you have the chance to react, as Brad Neitzel noted to me when he pushed off from his machine before being pinned or the many others when only your conditioning and good fortune will save you.

On the track, when everything is flowing in perfect synch the ability to react, compress properly, manage transition and maintain technical lines as well as tactical needs is the balance between the victors podium and failure.

Each of these scenarios has the common denominator that the only thing that is predictable is that the unexpected will occur. The age old adage of “expected the unexpected” rings out loud and clear in moto with the firm understanding that success comes to the bold and those who prepare properly.
