Basketball / 2019 NBA DRAFT

created this for..

800m+ Running and/or Conditioning / 2019 Boston Marathon
« on: April 14, 2019, 11:45:25 pm »
Monday morning!

Cherono is competing this year, he's been red hot. Desisa is coming off of his NY win.

Interested to see how Enoch (Floridian) does. He's not in the official elite list soo.. hope he's able to start w/ the elites so he can drop a better time. I imagine he will be. He's gone 2:18. He should be able to go < 2:15 in this field, which would be huge. FLORIDA!

LETS NERD THE F OUT / Beto "was a member of" cDc ("hacker group")
« on: March 15, 2019, 09:49:25 pm »

if that's the extent of it, his involvement is pretty minor.. and cDc was all over the place anyway. kinda cool tho.

Anyway. cDc was big when i was getting into things in the mid-late 90's. I never really liked them much: their "t-files" sucked. Stiil, they (cDc/l0pht) were a big part of hacker-culture. Some of the members went on to make a pretty huge impact on sec, mudge for example.

Crazy Weird Analysis & Stuff :) / Heat Studies
« on: March 02, 2019, 07:53:42 pm »
heat shock proteins

Researchers have been looking at the effects of heat on athletic performance for decades, and their results have been consistently surprising. Studies have found that, in addition to an increased rate of perspiration, training in the heat can increase an athlete’s blood plasma volume (which leads to better cardiovascular fitness), reduce overall core temperature, reduce blood lactate, increase skeletal muscle force, and, counterintuitively, make a person train better in cold temperatures. In fact, heat acclimation may actually be more beneficial than altitude training in eliciting positive physiological adaptations, says Santiago Lorenzo, a professor of physiology at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and a former decathlete at the University of Oregon. “Heat acclimation provides more substantial environmental specific improvements in aerobic performance than altitude acclimation,” he says. And in contrast to the live low, train high philosophy, we more quickly adapt to heat stress than we do to hypoxia. In other words, heat training not only does a better job at increasing V02 max than altitude, but it also makes athletes better at withstanding a wider range of temperatures.

A 2011 study by a group of researchers in New Zealand also found that overall volume of blood plasma increased at a greater rate when athletes did not drink water during exercise. While some coaches are carefully experimenting with dehydration, Minson and Lorenzo are not because it adds too much additional stress. However, they do say that this type of training can be beneficial because it produces a higher number of “heat shock” protein cells.

2. Koop most commonly recommends that his athletes use a dry sauna immediately after running. “It doesn’t impact training nearly as much as running in the heat, and the effects are similarly positive,” he says. He often tells his athletes to not drink water during these sessions to enhance the effect. Koop recommends spending 20-to-30-minutes in the sauna, depending on tolerance.

3. Koop says that when he has his athletes exercise in the heat—either naturally or by wearing extra clothing to simulate the experience—it will be on a long, slow day for 60 to 90 minutes. The time completely depends on the athlete’s tolerance and previous experience. But he stresses to not do this on a recovery day, because heat training is an added stress on the body. Koop recommends drinking 30 to 40 ounces of an electrolyte drink per hour during these sessions  And for safety, he advises using low-traffic sidewalks and bike paths—not trails.

Shoes / question: shipping shoes from Canada to the US
« on: February 05, 2019, 04:45:19 pm »
if I found someone in Canada to receive some shoes I ordered, and ship them to the US, is that too much of a pain in the ass?

anyone have an idea?

this is scary:

finally found some shoes i want, and they are in Canada. figured it would be easy to get them, but doesn't seem so. fml.

News, Announcements, & Suggestions / created an "Old Journals" section
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:46:25 pm »
meant to post this the other day:

I had removed the "Journal Graveyard" a while ago. So, after gukl's request to move an old journal to the graveyard, I created "Old Journals" instead.

I don't really like the concept of: "Journal Graveyard: Quitters, Deserters, etc". I guess when I created it back then, I was annoyed when people stopped journaling, stopped training, etc. So maybe it was partially a tactic to shame people who stopped journaling etc, in an effort to keep others focused etc. Who knows.. Regardless, it was too aggressive. That kind of stuff might work short term, but the result in the end will always be the same.

Anyway, I moved all journals over a year old into this new section, no exceptions. No disrespect intended either, just some maintenance. It makes sense that the journals section should represent actively maintained material, so you have a clear picture of how many people are consistently or somewhat-consistently working on something.

We have an "arcane system" on here, but it works.

lots of "happy new year" posts in the training journals, so here's an official thread for it!

also, the universe is apparently 13.8 billion years old, so.. keep that in mind :P
