Fight Your Swimming Fears

“Fear” -- even the word makes some people twitchy [gtranslate] Recent research in neuroscience has told us a lot about why some people become extremely nervous and worried before the swim.

The same is happening in your brain on race day. Different parts of your brain start fighting for…

Tri Shorts vs Cycling Shorts

“What’s the difference between tri shorts and bike shorts?”, “Why do I need tri shorts?”, “What are tri shorts?” [gtranslate] I get asked these questions quite often. Three distinct items differentiate tri shorts from bike shorts: Function: Running and Swimming versus Bike Riding Construction: How the short is designed Price: Which is more expensive? It really depends on what quality product you are going to pick. Function: Whether or not you’re really going to need that diaper of a pad…. Bike shorts often come with the notion of having a “diaper-like”…

Proper Nutritional Recovery

Recovery is the neglected performance enhancer, and proper nutrition is the best recovery enhancer [gtranslate] Everyone is training hard, but the winners are recovering better. Athletes at the highest levels of competition—the Tour de France, Ironman triathlons, and the Olympics—understand that the ability to recover quickly and completely often makes the difference between peak performance and poor performance. What happens if you recovery poorly? Your body remains in a depleted state, tissue damage continues, immune system activity becomes suppressed, and injury sets in. The first and most obvious way to…

Team Bodyfeed Triathlon Coaching Running at local 5K race

What’s the difference between aerobic and anaerobic workout? [gtranslate] Probably it isn’t the first time you hear about aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. What’s the difference between aerobic and anaerobic workout?! Surely, you’ve heard about these terms many times before.

So I decided to talk briefly about the difference between aerobic and…

Ankle Sprain Recovery

Ankle sprains are unfortunately a common injury for runners [gtranslate] A sprain is a stretch or tear in a ligament that holds two bones together. In your ankle there are three smaller ligaments on the outside (where most sprains occur as the foot rolls in) and one big ligament on the inside (where only about five percent of sprains occur). A mild sprain usually involves a stretch or partial tear of the anterior talofibular ligament in the front and outside of the ankle. Letting the tendon heal is your best…

Benefits Of Stretching

why you should stretch

It’s probably safe to say that endurance, speed and other factors are important especially for long distance athletes [gtranslate] That’s not to say flexibility is any less important that any of those factors. In fact, flexibility can often be a determining factor when it comes to achieving a PR or getting competitive. Like having success and achieving goals, improving flexibility takes time and that time should be spent stretching, if you have visions of kissing your knees with straight legs and toes touching (something you’ve all thought about no doubt) or just simply…

Yoga Poses To Develop Strong Arms

best yoga poses

Chaturanga Dandasana ... as one the most challenging movements in yoga [gtranslate] It's also one that's notoriously performed incorrectly most often. So why is it that so many yogis struggle with this pose? The key is building up enough arm strength, so that the hips and chest stay lifted as you lower down, while the elbows stay hugged in at your sides. Often called the "low pushup," Chaturanga (aka Four-Limbed Staff Pose) proves tricky without a solid core and well-developed shoulder and arm muscles. But a proper Chaturanga in your…

Why And How Runners Get Hurt ?

A First, any time a runner experiences a new ache or pain, always, always take a look at your running shoes [gtranslate] Shoes are our most important piece of gear (for obvious reasons) and therefore, they are our first line of defense against injuries. So, examine your shoes carefully for wear and tear. It may be time to replace them! How old are they? The life span of most shoes is approximately 400 to 800km. I know this is a wide range, but there are many variables. Some of the…
