FROM GARY SHELLY-PERSONAL TRAINER
Over-training or Over-straining
Great article from Precision Nutrition:
Sometimes, less is more. Putting in a consistent good effort over the long haul is much more sustainable than cycles of “crash and burn” Do what truly works. Look, if “pump till you puke” and hours of treadmill torture worked, we’d make our clients do it.But it doesn’t work.So we don’t do it. Exercise should make us feel, look, perform and live better… not crush us. Movement should help us function freely… not incapacitate us.

What if you could leave the gym feeling energized, not exhausted? What if, instead of doing more, you could do better?

Recovery: Overtraining antidote.Here’s your first tip: “Over-training” isn’t exactly the problem. The problem is more like “under-recovering”. Your body can actually handle a tremendous amount of work… if you recover properly and fully from that work.

Your stress-recovery pattern should look like rolling hills: For every up (training or life stress) there’s a down (recovery). For every intense workout, there’s an equally intense focus on activities that help your body repair and rebuild.

CARDIO TENNIS WITH WILL AND NAOMI

Cardio tennis is a party on the court. It is a high intensity group fitness activity featuring the best tennis drills and games while providing the ultimate aerobic and anaerobic workout. The purpose of cardio tennis is to: train in your heart-rate zones, burn calories, and train for tennis. In cardio tennis, it is advised for players to wear heart monitors to determine what zones they’re in and how many calories they have burned.
There are six components that make it cardio tennis:

1) The three segments (warm-up, cardio, and cool down)
2) Music
3) Heart rate monitors
4) The agility ladder
5) cardio blast
6) the right trained professional

Cardio tennis is played with low-compression tennis balls (orange balls) also called cardio balls. There are a number of reason why we use this type of balls and these are some of the benefits of using cardio balls:
– hitting longer rallies by not being able to put the ball away as quick
– balls bounce slower so it makes the players move better
– gives you time to set up properly and work on technique
– It works as a “equalizer” when it comes to having different levels on the court

Hope to see you there,THURSDAYS AT 7PM
Thanks,
Naomi and William
