first_img EFFECTS OF – The heart grows larger, its walls gets thicker, blood volume increases. More capillaries grow, fat is burned more readily; lower resting heart rate and larger arteries, leading to lower blood pressure. – Increased fitness of lungs and respiratory system, leading to stronger rib muscles and diaphragm. Therefore the chest gets bigger during inhalation, the lungs expands further, facilitating more air and more oxygen is picked up, preventing easy tiring. – Training at high altitude (eg. in Mexico City) makes the aerobic changes described above happen very quickly and is good for anaerobic events (sprints, jumps, throws). Most training effects that take place in the muscles happen as a result of our muscles having to work without oxygen during anaerobic activities. Therefore, the actual development will include muscle hypertrophy. The muscles become larger as the individual muscle fibres grow thicker, fast-twitch muscle fibres increase in size and become more efficient in coping with lactic acid before becoming tired, the muscle cells store greater amount of ATP creatine phosphate and glycogen, and the chemical reaction in the muscles that produce energy increases in quantity, speed and efficiency. Weight training also causes muscle hypertrophy. Muscle strength increases when very heavy weight is lifted for few repetitions. Muscle power increases when heavy weight is lifted for a number of fast repetitions. Muscle endurance increases when light weights are lifted for many repetitions. Muscle Atrophy will occur when the muscles become inactive. Therefore, they become smaller and weaker. Muscle atrophy usually happens when the athlete is out of training as a result of injury. Be reminded that when lifting weights you should know your onerepetition maximum (1 RM) in order to guide the following: – Maximum strength – at least three sets of six reps at near maximum weight – Muscular power – at least three sets of 10-15, using 60-80 per cent of 1 RM – Muscular endurance – at least three sets of 20-30 reps using 40-60 per cent of 1 RM. When the body starts to do physical activities a number of changes take place. The exact amount of change will depend on the intensity and duration of the activity. As mentioned in earlier topics, regular training will result in adaptation of our bodies. The type of training undertaken determines what adaptations or responses are effected. AEROBIC TRAININGcenter_img ENERGY SYSTEMS Most sports are a mixture of aerobic and anaerobic work. Training makes both energy systems better. However, the training is different for each. Aerobic respiration is the production of energy using oxygen: (C6H12O6 + O2-> CO2 + water +energy). Anaerobic respiration is the production of energy without using oxygen: C6O12O6-> Energy + lactic acid. Exercise will cause the brain to increase the number of brain signals to the heart. This will cause an increase in the heart rate. The heart rate shows how hard you are working and which energy system is being used. The fastest the heart can beat is called your maximum heart rate, and can be calculated using the formula: maximum heart rate = 220 minus your age. If the heart rate is about 60 per cent of your maximum heart rate, you are working aerobically. The actual rate is measured by taking the pulse. How fit an individual wants to be will depend on working within a range of heart rates, which is the target zones. Therefore, you must train above a minimum heart rate of 60 per cent of your maximum to gain fitness. Exercise below this will gain no aerobic benefits. This means, you must exercise below an upper limit. Once the heart rate rises above a certain point you are doing anaerobic work and lactic acid will build up and cause pain. The aerobic range should be anywhere between 70 per cent-85 per cent of the maximum heart rate. You must exercise below this point to gain aerobic benefits. This is called your aerobic training zone. The heart rates at the limits of the zone are called the training thresholds. The lower limit is the aerobic threshold. The upper limit is anaerobic threshold. An unfit person should be working at 60 per cent – 70 per cent of their maximum heart rate, a fitter person at 65-75 per cent, and a fit person at 75-85 per cent. For aerobic training, choose an activity which involves the large muscles of the body, e.g. walking, swimming, jogging, cycling etc. Work for at least 15 to 20 minutes per session at least three times per week. Work at least 60 per cent of the maximum heart rate within your aerobic training zone. Weeks of aerobic training must be done before anaerobic training. Working at, or above, 85 per cent of the maximum heart rate means you are working anaerobically.last_img read more

No details of the conversation were released by the newspaper which said only that it was “friendly” while other reports said he had discussed tactics.La Gazzetta said that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is expected in Madrid on Tuesday when Real directors are scheduled to meet.However, rival sports paper Corriere dello Sport said the directors meeting had been put off so that “nothing would be revealed” about the deal.“The Cristiano Ronaldo affair has become a game of chess,” the newspaper said, adding that the endgame could be a close as today.However, details about transfer fees were still unclear with Gazetta citing 120 million euros ($140.5 million) and the Corriere putting the deal at between 130 and 150 million euros.Juve are ready to sign the five-times Ballon d’Or winner on a four-year deal for an annual basic salary of 30 million euros.

Rafael Laveaga, a spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington, declined to comment on Chertoff’s remarks. He stood by earlier remarks that the Mexican military has never deliberately stepped onto U.S. soil. He declined to say if there were any unintentional crossings. The head of a labor union that represents about 10,500 U.S. Border Patrol agents dismissed Chertoff’s remarks as “diplomatic response” to a long-running problem on U.S.-Mexico border. “It really doesn’t surprise me that he’s playing the diplomat,” said T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council. “This is a guy whose time on the border can be measured in hours, not years.” Bonner said Mexican soldiers – possibly some Army deserters – are providing protection for drug runners. “It’s all about the drugs,” he said. “The lure of the riches of the cartel, they’re too many for many of their solders to resist, whether they’re corrupted on active duty or take up with other bands.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN DIEGO – Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Wednesday that reports of Mexican soldiers frequently crossing onto U.S. soil were overblown, calling many of those incursions innocent mistakes. “I think to create the image that somehow there is a deliberate effort by the Mexican military to cross the border would be to traffic in scare tactics,” Chertoff told reporters in Washington. “We have a good relationship with the Mexicans and I think treating this as an alarmist issue that suggests we’re in danger of some significant overreaching is not accurate and not helpful.” Chertoff’s remarks followed a newspaper report that the Mexican military had crossed into the United States 216 times since 1996. The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin of Ontario reported the story Sunday. “I think we average about 20 a year, and a significant number of those are innocent things where … police or military from Mexico may step across the border because they’re not aware of exactly where the line is,” Chertoff said. last_img read more

Emerging from post-boom Ireland is a new generation of writers, seeking to make sense of our changed land.Through short stories, novels, humour and surrealness, they inhabit big cities, rural towns and anonymous coastlines.For this literary weekend on the Wild Atlantic Way, curated by Sinéad Gleeson, Earagail Arts Festival is joined by some of this new generation, including Kevin Barry, Belinda McKeon, Sara Baume, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Gavin Corbett and Lisa McInerney.On Saturday 25th July at 2pm, Nuala Ní Chonchúir will host a writing seminar for first-time and experienced writers.This seminar will zone in on the important elements in fiction writing; using quotes, exercises and examples, Nuala will show participants how to be mindful in their writing, from start to finish, exploring early decisions in fiction writing: the importance of a strong title and a good opening; explore apt language use, story/plot and the creation of believable dialogue.The class will examine character under the following headings: motivation, conflict, profiles and naming.This class is suitable for the first-time writer as well as those who have been writing for a while. Participants will also receive a handout.Kevin Barry will show on Saturday 25th July at 4pm. Kevin Barry’s novel City of Bohane (2011) won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. He has published two short story collections:There Are Little Kingdoms (2007), which won the Rooney Prize for Literature and Dark Lies the Island (2012) and his work has appeared in The New Yorker and Granta. His stage plays have been performed in Ireland and the US, and his radio dramas have been broadcast by RTE and the BBC.His second novel Beatlebone is about John Lennon’s 1978 visit to Ireland and will be published this autumn. Chaired by: Derek O’Connor.On Sunday 26th July at 2pm, two of the most intriguing new voices in Irish Fiction, Belinda McKeon and Sara Baume, will discuss their publishing stories, and their work.Belinda McKeon is the author of two novels, Solace, which won the Faber Prize and was named Irish Book of the Year 2011, and Tender, which has just been published by Picador. She is originally from Longford and has lived in New York for the past ten years.Sara Baume won the Davy Byrne’s Short Story Award and Hennessy Literary Award for her short stories.Her debut novel, Spill Simmer Falter Wither, was published by Tramp Press and will be published in the UK by William Heinemann in October. Chaired by: Derek O’Connor.On Sunday 26th July at 4pm, Lisa McInerney and Gavin Corbett will host the final seminar of the weekend.Writing humour, telling strange stories and modern Ireland turned upside down; these writers shake up old story forms with satire in the post-Celtic Tiger Ireland. Gavin Corbett was born in Co Galway and raised in Dublin, where he still lives.His novels include Innocence (2003) and This Is the Way (2013), which won the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year award.His anarchic third novel – Green Glowing Skull – about three Irish Tenors was published in May by Fourth Estate. Lisa McInerney’s short stories have appeared in the Faber anthology Town & Country and her debut novel The Glorious Heresies was published in April.
