Go Muscles Vs Show Muscles

For the past 30 years we have been training wrong. Our fitness programs have been highly influenced by equipment manufactures like Nautilus, who invented pin-selected weight machines and then brain washed us to believe that exercising on a machine was more effective, and at the same time bodybuilders like Arnold who published «The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding» and then the movie «Pumping Iron.» These programs have helped to develop great «Show Muscles», but done very little to improve the function of our everyday activities and athleticism, our «Go Muscles». At the same time over the past 30 years we have been continually getting fatter and more deconditioned as a population. How can this be if pin-selected machines are the best way to exercise and the techniques of bodybuilders are superior to everything else? They aren’t!

Unless you are a bodybuilder there is no benefit to building «Show Muscles». Instead, you need to change you focus to building «Go Muscles». Go Muscles are not developed on weight machines or by doing single-joint exercises, such as bicep curls and seated chest presses. Rather they are built through total body exercises, such as deadlifts, push-ups, cleans, etc., and are built off of the ability to lift and control your own bodyweight before adding any external resistance. Also, Go Muscles are developed standing, especially on one leg, not seated or lying down. When you are seated or lying down you are not engaging your core muscles, which are the foundation of a strong body.

So why are we still having the 40-year-old mother of 4 doing seated chest presses and bicep curls? She is never going to compete in a bodybuilding contest and just wants to lose 10 pounds and have more energy. But yet we still put her on a circuit of machines. The only thing this is going to help her do is flex for the other soccer moms, it’s not going to help her drop those 10 pounds or load and unload groceries into the car and still have enough energy to wash clothes, cook dinner, and help the kids with homework.

Many people are beginning to change their approach to fitness, but there are still many more that are using the same failing methods that went out of style in the 80’s with leg warmers and spandex unitards.

Pre-Season Soccer Training – The Basics

Effective pre-season training is important for all soccer players of any age, whether you play for a team in the Premier League or your local college team and the work done in pre-season can define the competitive season ahead, making the difference between winning trophies or being also-rans.

The Pre-season soccer training schedule should be planned out by the coach in order to maximise each session. Ideally training should begin at least five to six weeks before the season actually starts.

Each training session should start with a thorough warm-up taking care not to strain any muscles in early pre-season. Ideally each session should begin with a five minutes gentle jogging followed by gentle static stretching, followed by more jogging followed by a more intensive stretching session, while taking care not to over stretch and cause damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Stretching for soccer should include all major muscle groups, with a mixture of dynamic and static stretches. Dynamic stretching exercises that are perfect for soccer and include swinging the arms and circling the shoulders, twisting the upper body and swinging the legs as if kicking an imaginary ball, be careful not to over stretch with these exercises. Static stretches do not involve movement of the joint and are essential for the quadriceps and hamstrings. Ballistic stretches which involve bouncing to maximise the stretch are no longer advocated and should be avoided.

Running is excellent for aerobic conditioning and should be encouraged as improved fitness will pay dividends later in the season, this should involve distance work, sprinting and running that involves work with the soccer ball. Dribbling the soccer ball around cones or across a defined area will improve conditioning, speed and ball control at the same time.

Work with the soccer ball can be extended by spending time controlling the ball with the feet, knees and head, a perfect way to practice this is to divide players into pairs and have one player throw the ball while the other controls and returns to his partner .

Each session can be completed with a short game possibly integrating two touch soccer which will improve ball control and passing accuracy and also encourage thinking and movement off the ball. Following the game a cool down with stretching should take place to minimise aching and tired muscles which will aid recovery for your next session.

During early pre-season is it important not to over exert the players and to make the sessions fun which will motivate if players are tired not too push them too much, this can result in injury and lack of enthusiasm. Another important factor for any training session is adequate hydration, ensure all the players have a water bottle and keep adequately hydrated throughout the training session.

3D Printing Success: What’s The Reason Behind It?

3D printing has made a strong stand in the printing industry and has given a tough competition to traditional manufacturing. It has successfully left its impact in every nook and corner of this world. Advancement in 3D printing has affected the production of prototypes, jewelry, architecture, portraits, aerospace and medical field. Food Science has also witnessed a major change with the coming up of 3D printing. You can now print out your favorite chocolates the way you want to eat it. That made you skip a beat, didn’t it? This is the magic of 3D printing and it has led to a major 3D printing success; renovating the wildest impossible ideas and presenting it to the real world in the most artistic way possible.

What has led to the 3D printing success?

This printing industry has been successful in gaining popularity and firming its position in this ever-advancing business. Quality of phenomenally managing time, helping its customers to get their products to develop fast, reducing the cost of the final product has led to consumer satisfaction on a bigger scale. It involves a technology of printing by interpreting the digitally supplied coordinates with the help of a 3D printer.

Now, you might think how does this make it better?

Well, describing the product is sometimes a very difficult thing to do because it leaves construction up to the imagination. A picture always acts up as a savior since it is worth a thousand words. There is no ambiguity when you hold the exact replica or at least a very close representation of your artifact. 3D printing industry allows self-designing of a product by its customers which contributes to the creativity of the industry. All this has led to the 3D printing success.

3D printing has witnessed a huge transition if we compare its present development to when it started back in 1986 by Chuck Hull. Though it is not possible to completely eradicate the traditional manufacturing, it is strongly believed that 3D printing would give a tough competition to it in future.

3D Printing Success Stories

1. Pictures are meant for everyone

‘Touchable memories’ by pirate3D, turns photographs into 3D-printed objects for people without vision. This was a social experiment to create an awareness of the unlimited possibilities of using technology to improve lives. The task was performed using an affordable home printer called Buccaneer. It led the visually impaired to re-experience images by feeling the artifact and fabricating a tangible scene of it.

2. Nike does it again

Nike launched the rebento duffel, the first 3D printed performance sports bag for Brazil’s 2014 FIFA World Cup. The carry-piece takes styling cues from the sports company’s fly knit pattern of the magista and mercurial. A laser-sintered nylon creates an intertwined weave seamlessly fitting into the 3D printed base without the use of glue or adhesive. The premium leather upper and strap construction also gives the body a lightweight, yet durable structure that allows for flex.

3. Don’t judge it on its size

LIX, A London based company has successfully created the World’s smallest 3D printing pen. The device enables users to create in the air. Sounds Impossible? But, as always 3D printing has made it possible. Made out of aluminum and measuring 164mm x 14mm, this device allows users to make objects in just a few seconds, including calligraphy, accessories, and one-off prototypes. It functions similar to a 3D printer the only difference is that it is a USB port charging pen which quickly melts and cools colored plastic enabling the pen to create rigid and freestanding structures.

England FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa

After some of the most disappointing performances in the last few years, England sure will have a point to prove in South Africa. Here’s a closer look that the country’s profile and their chances at FIFA 2010.

England’s national football team is controlled by the Football Association, Wembley in London being their home ground. England is currently ranked 8th in the latest FIFA rankings ahead of the World Cup

Speaking of the past record, England is one of the only seven nations who have lifted the FIFA World Cup trophy. After defeating West Germany 4-2 in the extra time at the finals, England won its first FIFA World Cup in 1966 at their home soil. However, the performance has been average after that, the best being reaching the semifinals in 1990 where they lost to West Germany.

At the FIFA world Cup 2010, England has been placed in the Group C alongside USA, Algeria and Slovenia. They kick start their tournament at Rutsenburg against USA on June 12th after which they play Algeria and Slovenia on 18th and 23rd June respectively.

Having missed out on a place at the UEFA EURO 2008, England bounced back strongly to book its berth at the FIFA 2010 with as many as 9 wins out of their ten group matches. Their only defeat came against Ukraine but till then, their place was sealed.

Dubbed English football’s ‘golden generation’, this could well be the last chance for many of the most successful players the game has ever seen. With an able coach in Fabio Capello, Wayne Rooney and co. would sure be looking to silence its critics. The team has many star players in its ranks. Leading from the front would be their skipper and Manchester United’s star forward Rooney. With other legendary players like the midfield duo Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch, England sure is a team not to be undermined.

Predicting the World Cup 2010 Winner

What does predicting the economy got to do with predicting the World Cup winner? A lot if you listen to Swiss Bank UBS.

In the World Cup 2006, the economists and analysts at the Wealth Management Research at UBS used the statistical model that enabled them to predict market trends and investment decisions and applied it to predict the World Cup winner.

They correctly predicted that Italy would be the champion. They also succeeded in getting six of the eight quarter-finalists correct. Their track record also included correctly forecasting three of the four semi-finalists.

UBS’s model is a purely quantitative analysis and the criteria used are past performance, home advantage and teams’ strength. Now let’s discuss the model:

For past performance, so far seven nations have won the championship. (Brazil five times, Italy four times, Germany three times, Argentina and Uruguay two times, France and England one time each). So according to UBS, if you pick one of these seven teams, it appears to be a safe bet.

As for the home advantage, a third of the past world cups was won by the host country. Now:

# The weather is mild winter in South Africa and it appears that the host nation may not have the climate advantage. This applies similarly to the African nations in the finals.

# Some matches will be played at venues at high altitude. This is a clear advantage to the host and the South American teams like Brazil.

# In every tournament, there is speculation of referees favoring the Home team. Will there be many controversial calls helping the host?

# This being Africa’s World Cup, there are many who wonder if an African nation will advance past the group stage into the quarter-finals for the first time. In every tournament, there will always be a team which will be the surprise package. Will this team come from Africa?

# And lastly, there is this «outside-of-Europe» syndrome. So far every World Cup had been won by either an European team or a South American side. No European team has won outside the comfort of their own continent. Now in South Africa, many pundits believe that the South American teams will have so-called ground advantage.

Regarding the strength of the teams, UBS took into consideration the FIFA ranking and the bookmakers’ odds.

So which team has UBS picked to be WC 2010 champion? Brazil.

Well, your guess is as good as mine on which team will win. My trusted crystal ball tells me it is Spain.

In every World Cup, betting wise, it is a true challenge. The tournament is held every four years and qualification ends months before the ball is kicked in the first game of the finals. During this time, a lot can change in the football world.

World Cup means patriotic fervor comes into play. We all have passionate feelings for a certain team or a certain player which will determine our decision.

There are 32 teams in the finals so technically there are 32 potential winners. It is interesting to note some characteristics of these teams:

* Some teams have a good striking department with tons of firepower, but lacking everywhere else.

* Some teams have great talented players but have insane coaches.

* Some are perceived as perennial underachievers like Spain and England who seem to choke on the big stage.

* Some are tournament teams like Germany and Italy who may be underrated before the finals, but know how to grind out the results. Well this is according to past performances.

* Experts have expected Spain to win the last two World Cups – but they never have.

* England are going to win it every time according to the English – but they never do.

And there are some interesting statistics:

# No team has successfully defended the WC for a long while. Would the 2006 winner Italy be the exception? But Italy has an aging squad and may not be expected to last all the way. It is easier to reach the top, but much harder to stay there!

# Only once in the last 21 group games has the WC host lost, so would South Africa be the surprise package?

Why Spain will Win

With one loss in their last 46 matches, Spain arrived at South Africa as one of the best teams. They are the favorites to lift the World Cup on July 11. They are ahead of Brazil in the eyes of the bookmakers and pundits.

Spain (Rank 1) play in Group H against Chile (Rank 17), Switzerland (Rank 18) and Honduras (Rank 38).

They have been dubbed by the media in the past as «perennial underachiever». But the faith of their fans may be justified this time as they have completely turned the corner after winning Euro 2008. They had built on this success and thereafter had won all of their qualifying games for WC 2010, the first team to achieve such a record.

The Talents

Spain is a team with polished gems. They boast the talents of Fernando Torres and David Villa up front, Xavi and Andres Iniesta, Xabi Alonso and Cesc Fabregas in the middle, Carles Puyol and Gerrard Pique at the back, and Iker Casillas in goal. The reigning European champion look a formidable bunch.

They are stacked with players from the elite leagues in Europe like Barcelona and Real Madrid. The squad has so much depth that even the impressive Arsenal captain Fabregas, whom many consider as one of the best midfielders around, has to warm the bench as a substitute.

A well balanced team is needed to have the consistency to get through such a high level tournament. Look at Argentina. The hope of the entire nation rests on the shoulders of young Messi. But Messi does not perform for his country like he does for Barcelona because he does not have the midfield marshals like Xavi and Iniesta behind him to pull the strings. And I shall leave the Argentina manager alone.

The Spanish squad has been largely unchanged from the team that won Euro 2008. Playing together for years can only foster better understanding on the pitch. The Spain of today exude calm and confidence. Wearing the European crown does such things to you.

Injury

Of course injury is a concern but this is the same for every team. Torres and Fabregas missed playing the tail end of the league due to injuries. To look on the bright side, this could actually be a blessing in disguise as they are totally rested for the World Cup.

Spain has a deep squad with comparatively able replacements. They are not a one or two men team like Ivory Coast relying on Drogba.

If injuries are inflicted on play-makers, any team will suffer like Rooney for England, Lucio and Kaka for Brazil, Messi for Argentina, Sneijder for Holland, etc. Serious injuries are a disaster for every team.

Pressure

Being ranked No. 1 and as hot favorites, expectations are high. Will Spain crack under the pressure?

Much was made out of their 2-0 defeat in the Confederations Cup semi-final to USA last June. This ended their 35 match streak without a loss. Some said Spain buckled under the pressure in that match because they wanted so much to break Brazil’s 35 match streak of not suffering a loss. To many this is considered a great weakness to cave in to pressure.

A lot of teams lose matches that they should win. Most important is to learn a lesson from the loss. I believe the Spanish had indeed learned a valuable lesson. From then on, they had not lost again.

Mental Strength

Psychologists often stress that half of the battle is won in the head. Unfortunately, Spain have the unwanted tag of perennial choker on the big stage. In the past when the going gets tough, they have gone missing.

But now all the players pledged that they know their biggest enemy is themselves and they have developed greater self belief.

Complacency

There is a great threat of complacency when facing the likes of Honduras, Chile and Switzerland. I am confident that with an experienced coach in del Bosque, the players will know in no uncertain terms that a place in the second round is not a formality.

Assurance and over-confidence is divided by a very fine line. The last thing they will think is they have already won the match even before the ball is kicked.

How To Beat Spain

Some said the way to beat Spain is to follow the tactics of Jose Mourinho whose Inter Milan succeeded where virtually everybody failed by knocking Barcelona out of the Champions League. The tactic is to have the players defend deep in their own half, soaking up the pressure thrown at them and rely on swift counter-attack to score. Well, I am not sure whether there could be another «Special One’ around.

Conclusion

If Spain keep their heads they will win World Cup 2010. If they don’t, they are simply beaten by themselves.
