The Complete Boxing Workout

Boxing is increasing in popularity nowadays. But maybe this might not be entirely because of professional boxers. Big name boxers are now on the decline. And big prize fights don’t reach the purses of ten years ago.

But on the whole, boxing as a physical work out and exercise is going down to the grassroots with boxing gyms springing up all over the place. From my personal experience, this is because boxing is more interesting than the old standard aerobic exercises, and offers more variety than velo-spinning or the treadmill.

Boxing training gyms have gone a long way from the dark seedy and all male enclave. It has gone into the mainstream, where the largest enrollment in some places are for young women who want to develop their muscles and learn how to punch, but not necessarily in that order.

Boxing offers a lot in terms of an all-around workout. It develops stamina, with the requisite roadwork, and the jumping rope. It also helps make for more flexibility. And unlike lifting free weights, boxing develops the major muscle groups without putting emphasis on any single one. As a cardio workout, sparring, punching the speedbag, and jumping rope is understated. Jumping rope burns more calories than cycling or running.

A stint at the speed ball helps a lot with eye-hand coordination. It should be obvious but unless you think about it hard, you won’t get it. That’s because it looks almost too easy not to hit the ball. It does bounce back, doesn’t it?

One other advantage a boxing regimen has over other gym routines is the intensity of the coach. The trainer looks out for the boxer, and gives instructions which require a well-rounded training, from the speed and coordination, to the power punch on the heavy punching bag; to the legwork where you are asked to dance from side to side and gliding forward and back. As a form of exercise, boxing does have a lot to offer.

5 Tips For Staying Alive Whilst Rock Climbing

1. Don’t risk it on abseils.

Sometimes we have to abseil as part of the rock climbing, this could be due to finishing the route and abseiling is the only way back down or not making it to the top of the route as it is too hard. No matter what your reason is for abseiling, you will have to do it safely.

When abseiling you will have to chose an anchor to attach your rope to. If you are lucky there will be a spike of rock that you can wrap your rope around. If you are not 100% happy with your anchors, place your own gear and leave it behind. Your life is worth more than a 10 piece of climbing gear. Don’t be afraid to leave gear behind. Too many accidents have occurred due to climbers not wanting to leave their personal climbing gear behind. Instead they trust their lives to rusty of pegs that have been left in the rock over 50 years ago!

2. Belay near the base of the crag.

When climbing, the climber will have to place specialised climbing equipment into the rock. The climbing rope can then be attached to this climbing equipment. This equipment is often term ‘protection’. Protection will normally only hold a fall in one direction only, protection can cope with being pulled downwards but not sideways, outwards or upward. When you are holding the climbers rope (this is called belaying) you must stand near the base of the cliff otherwise the rope between you can the climber could accidentally pull the protection outwards. The person climbing the rock will not be happy if they look down and notice that you have inadvertently pulled all the protection out of the rock.

3. Extend your runners.

Runners are another name for protection. The protection is clipped to the rope via another piece of climbing equipment called a ‘quickdraw’. A quickdraw is two metal clips held together by a short length of strong material. The idea of this material to make sure any movement in the climbing rope does not get transferred to the protection. Remember that protection can only cope with being pulled downwards, if the rope pulls the protection in any other way, it could come loose. The longer the quickdraw the better it will be at making sure your climbing protection stays in place.

4. Carry a mobile phone.

There are not many places in the U.K that don’t get a mobile phone reception. This phone can stay in a pocket and be used in case of emergencies.

5. Check that the rock around your protection is solid.

When you place protection, it must be placed in solid rock. There is no point placing climbing protection in rock that will fall apart if weight is applied to the climbing protection. You can check the rock by giving it a sharp tap with the heel of your hand. If the rock is loose it will either move or have a hollow ring to it as you hit it. You will soon learn this sound and learn to avoid this type of rock.

Creakic: The Six Most Faq’s About Creakic

This is the first in a series to find out about Creakic. If you are a bodybuilder, strength addict or conditioning freak, this supplement may be for you. Years of research has been done and Creakic promises results that few other supplements do. This article will focus on the frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) regarding Creakic. More in-depth articles concerning Creakic will be coming in the next few days. Creakic is one of the supplements which may change your thought process on your intense training program.

1. What is CREAKIC?

Creakic is a new creatine-based supplement that neutralizes reactive oxygen species (ROS) to maximize creatine absorption by your muscles to support rapid muscle growth. What the heck does that mean to me? Ok, Creakic will help the creatine get into your muscles faster.

2. What’s in it?

Sorry for this but there is no way to put these words into English. Creakic is a molecularly engineered, multipart form of creatine, known chemically as creatine-6,8-thioctic acid-ketoisocaproic acid calcium. See I told you! Regular creatine pills, like creatine ethyl ester, can not neutralize the ROS (don’t worry definitions are coming), so you may only get so-so results.

3. What are Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)?

These basically are the little toxins that inhibit or slow down the creatine transport process. So they stop the creatine from getting into your muscles and that limits your muscle growth. Never heard of them? Stay tuned for the next article.

4. What is the science behind it?

Creakic is the product of years of research into looking at and solving the one significant problem that other creatine pills have failed to address ? reactive oxygen species (ROS). Seemingly, no other creatine pill has been created to actually look at this problem.

5. How do I know it’s the supplement for me?

Depending on your level of activity and where you want to be in your training, Creakic may be the right supplement. You need a way to get more creatine into your muscles. Bottom line, this is what it does.

6. Why is CREAKIC so revolutionary?

Before Creakic, athletes took creatine in pill or powder form, hoping it all went into the muscles. They couldn’t be sure. Research shows Creakic simply recharges your creatine receptors, which basically counters the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and can lead to an impressive rush in strength and muscle gains. It helps the cells become more open to the creatine. Nothing stands in its way to the muscles.

OK, I hope a few of your questions about Creakic have been answered. This seems to not be a run of the mill creatine supplement. Many years of research and study have gone into the creation of this bodybuilding/strength supplement. As with any new supplement, there are always pros and cons as to effectiveness. However, anecdotal claims show very positive results. These will be examined in our next articles, along with reviews, more questions and more science.

Boston Celtics And Miami Heat Let The Reserves Battle it Out

For thousands of fans that bought tickets for this match many weeks ago, expecting the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics to battle it out in the second to last game of the regular season, turned out nothing but a huge disappointment. Then again, you could easily understand where both Eric Spoelstra for Miami and Doc Rivers for Boston were standing to make a decision like this. The scheme was simple, the logic was bombproof: these two teams had more to lose risking potential injuries a game before the Playoffs than what they could gain with another win. Even if the game was against their conference rivals.

The Celtics and the Heat opted to let a bunch of bench players fight for it and let them decide who would be credited with a win. The result was sloppy at time, boring at others, and yet, a bit entertaining overall. Sure enough, for those who had paid big bucks to see LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh battle Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo, all they really got was 18 minutes of a low-key Pierce scoring 8 points for the night and sitting down for the whole 4th quarter. But that didn’t keep for some lesser-known players to make their thing.

With a solid performance from Sasha Pavlovic, who scored a season-high 16 points, including 12 points in the fourth quarter, the Celtics took a 78-66 win over the Miami Heat at the Boston Garden. The Celtics had a very efficient fourth quarter, and perhaps that’s really what ultimately gave them the win. Just check these numbers: the Celtics shoot 50 percent (11 for 22) in the fourth period while their solid defense forced Miami into eight of its season-high 25 turnovers, while they managed to open up a big gap that gave them the win.

According to Rivers, Rondo and Garnett should be back in the starting lineup when the Celtics hosts the Milwaukee Bucks for the regular season finale. It’s going to be a tough call for Rivers, because this is what is at stake: If the Celtics defeat the Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks lose their match against the Dallas Mavericks, Boston will take home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The logic is that the Celtics would prefer to open the playoffs on the road with a healthy lineup than be back at home with Rondo (back), Garnett (hip flexor) or Allen (bone spurs) still hobbled by injuries.

On the Miami Heat’s camp, the big stars also took a day off to give their injuries some recovery and rest time. Chris Bosh didn’t even bother to get in his uniform since he has been struggling with a left hamstring strain. James and Wade were still in their warm-ups and didn’t come to the bench until after the starting lineups were announced. Sure enough they both were listed as active in the rooster, but they never entered the game. It seems as if the Miami Heat are done chasing down Chicago for the No.1 spot in the Eastern Conference and are more than happy to settle for the second seed.
