(Post 91) Newton's Law and Kids

Newton's First law

"Any body will remain at rest or in its state of constant motion unless acted on by an outside force".

So turn off the TV and get those kids moving!!!

Here are some ideas:

1. Speed walk with good for them, for your back and for your neck.

2. Jump rope..and see how many jumps per minute they can do and then have them compete against themselves.

3. Invest in a Wii video game... boxing or tennis will get you both moving!!!.

(Post 90 ) The Silent Part of Rehabilitation, Training and Athletic Development

Rest, recovery and restoration are the most commonly ignored and misunderstood parts of rehabilitation, training and athletic development. This is due to the mislead notion that the gains of training such as stability, endurance, strength, speed and power are only attained while the work is being done, when in reality according to most experienced sports scientists and exercise physiologists the benefits and improvements can only be gain when the body has enough time to rest, recover, regenerate and adapt.
Ignoring this will only create tissue damage, dysfunction and pain.

Coming soon... more Myths and the Problems they cause.
