common errors in weight loss resolutions

Category : Uncategorized

One of the peculiar aspects of weight loss resolutions is that much of the tactical plans are considered simple by those in the exercise industry yet draconian to mainstream public. This comes down to the very simple notion that those in the exercise industry have established lifestyle habits that promote health and of-course the majority of public still ponders the “why and how” they put on weight despite being inactive and utilising a diet often not suitable for the family pet.

common errors in mass building resolutions

Category : Uncategorized

It is commonly accepted that it takes twenty-one days to establish a habit and with it the third week in January many have already lost sight of their “resolution”. The reasons are many and I suspect relatively easy to produce but it is not the time to look back upon a sea of regret and instead charge forward relentlessly.

In-season recovery work for athletes

Category : Uncategorized

For athletes, one of the most challenging aspects of competitive performance is staying fit and being fully recovered during playing season. Quite naturally for year-round sports this forces the individual into the difficult decision of prioritising different competitions but ultimately the problem of staying fit and achieving optimal recovery is one of the deciding points in overall success.

 

Within elite branches of sport this posts a remarkably challenging problem as you must find a way to be in optimal playing condition throughout the season and then peak when the “hunt for hardware” begins. Elite level coaches and let me stress “elite”, that the road to the victor’s podium includes a targeted plan to enhance recovery.

For the love of sport

Category : Uncategorized

It is quite apparent that the public’s fascination with the sporting scandal of the moment is akin to chit-chat over late afternoon tea with quaint biscuits as the depth of the conversation is lacking and quickly forgotten. One moment’s ever-so ‘pressing issue’ is bantered about in the ‘look at me’ social media circus without a glance at the mirror and for that matter truly reflecting upon the concern.

An athletes decision to cheat in a sport is not earth-shattering news, will not feed the millions sick or impoverished in our world and a being barred from competition is not a ‘death sentence’. I would think and given during my lifetime I have actually been told my future is in dire peril, that someone who has faced the darkest of moments would know the difference. However quite obviously that taste of their own mortality did not resonate and part of the error of athletic development in our world today conditions an athlete that they will be lauded for sporting accomplishments without understanding what is truly important in our lives. For athletes young and old alike reading, sport is wonderfully enriching but it is not ‘the end all, be all’ of life.

Playing a sport well does not make you a better person and does not match one day of a loving parent who nurtures their child, a physician who cares for the sick, an educator who teaches the next generation or those in law enforcement and military service who keep us from harms way.

Yet to cast blame solely at an athlete is somewhat off-course. The mainstream fails to realise the invisible hand of the enormous corporate sports world that manipulates the public fascination with athletic and at the precise moment you are reading this article the ‘spin’ to shape and influence opinion is being wove. Shaping image, preventative care and damage control is the behind the scenes work within the business side of elite level sport and make no mistake sports are about vast sums of money.

If you are going to lay blame of this and many situations that pertains to illegal and immoral activities of sport you most likely need to reflect upon your own support of elite sport. Our society has erroneously placed athletes and their accomplishments on a pedestal and every souvenir, licensed apparel and contest watched supports this condition to some degree. In my lifetime we have seen athlete’s salaries and wages rise to ridiculous levels and the public gleefully accepts this development along with questionable behaviour as a form of collateral damage for playing a sport well.

Simply, it is not acceptable.

Playing a sport well and possessing extraordinary athletic ability should not exclude you from proper conduct or for that matter, place you on a pedestal.

Guilt in this and every transgression involving athletes needs to be accepted by the individual in question, punished sternly but additionally signals a failing of their development plan and society. There are no victors in situations as such but a signal, assuming anyone can see ‘it’, that our society is well off-course on how it perceives athletics.

Sport is meant to better our society and well past what is considered the ‘elite branches’ it continues to do so but that might be the greatest flaw in the public perception. The true elite branch is not the high paid starlets with their fawning audience but those who participate for the sheer love of sport.

As debate continues endlessly over the transgressions of athletes, immoral conduct and cheating scandals it is time to do what is ‘right’. Bring athletes down from their pedestal, ensure they live to your standards and equally go outside and participate.

I have accomplished nearly everything I have wished to within sport and amongst the accolades and trophies the greatest joy are the friends I have made and the lives I have positively enriched.
