Why Squat?


By Greg Glassman

Why Squat?

The squat is essential to your well-being. The squat can both greatly improve your athleticism and keep your hips, back, and knees sound and functioning in your senior years.

Not only is the squat not detrimental to the knees it is remarkably rehabilitative of cranky, damaged, or delicate knees. In fact, if you do not squat, your knees are not healthy regardless of how free of pain or discomfort you are. This is equally true of the hips and back.

The squat is no more an invention of a coach or trainer than is the hiccup or sneeze. It is a vital, natural, functional, component of your being. The squat, in the bottom position, is nature's intended sitting posture (chairs are not part of your biological make-up), and the rise from the bottom to the stand is the biomechanically sound method by which we stand-up. There is nothing contrived or artificial about this movement.

Cinnamon Nutrition

Would you believe that a mere teaspoon of cinnamon contains 28 mg of calcium, almost one mg of iron, over a gram of fiber, and quite a lot of vitamins C, K, and manganese? It’s true. It also contains about half a gram of “usable” (non-fiber) carbohydrate.

Energy Pathways

The Pathways
There are three metabolic pathways in which we train:
1. The phosphagen pathway, fuels the highest-powered activities, those that last less than
about ten seconds.
2. The glycolytic pathway, dominates moderate-powered activities, those that last up to
several minutes.
3. The oxidative pathway, dominates low-powered activities, those that last in excess of
several minutes.
All three pathways are vital and none are negotiable. The same
applies for anyone concerned with general physical preparedness or great fitness, or any athlete looking for peak performance.

Refuel Right
Written by Kelli Montgomery

Experts suggest that you consume 200-300 calories within 30 minutes of your workout. But when it comes to refueling, what’s best to ingest? To answer this, we tapped licensed sports nutritionist Kelli Montgomery, a former pro triathlete. Here are her smart-snacking picks, plus advice on which foods to avoid—and why.

- Electrolytes are vital to physiologic function and athletic performance

- High or low levels of electrolytes are detrimental to performance and health

Ok. Ibuprofen has no place in the life of the athlete obsessed with chasing performance.

Taking an anti-inflammatory drug of any kind makes tendons and ligaments weaker, and stops muscles from getting stronger.

Is this clear enough? Yes, we used to call it Vitamin I. Yes, we used to say that RICE should have a second "I" in it (Rest, Ice, Ibuprofen, Compression, Elevation).
We used to also do "21's" on back and bi's day too. It's not ok.

Better recovery = better results

I recently wrote a small article for the folks over at MuscleTalk on the subject of masters training or training for those folks the other side of 40. Whilst there’s a certain disadvantage to being older with regards to recovery from training, intensity and duration of your weight training (or any other types of training like running) there’s a definite need to sit back and decide on how to train smarter and recover harder.

Training smart: making the most of your training cutting the wheat from the chaff and making the most of a reduced amount of training and using advanced warm up techniques to improve training.

Recovering hard: recovery is when you increase your fitness and strength levels, it is when you grow and adapt and where you burn fat. Whilst your time in the gym is the spark for change it is during the recovery period that the major changes happen. The article looks at nutrition, sleep, stress, soft tissue techniques like foam roller work.
