I have until March to improve my fitness for my rugby season and I want to try out shuttle runs to improve my fitness but I don’t know what intensity I should perform the exercise in.
Do I sprint all the way or should I jog.
FYI- I do weight training
Our circuit training class did lots of shuttle runs as groups to improve cardio vascular fitness. We worked out in a hall, so we only had the length of the hall to run, then turn and back again. That was one shuttle. The trainer set us up in pairs (or threes) and one person would do sit ups or pressups or bicep curls, etc while the other ran shuttles. The pairs got to choose how many shuttles to do. The fitter ones chose 10 or 12 shuttles, the less fit pairs chose 6 or 8 shuttles. The the shuttler ran the chosen number of shuttles while the other person did the exercise. Then they swapped and repeated. There was always a list of exercises to go through when you were the one staying stationary.
I think this would translate very well to running shuttles by yourself. Choose a turning point and the number of shuttles you want to do, then think of a list of other exercises you want to do. Alternate shuttles with the list of "stationary" exercises. This helps to give you a "rest" to recover from the shuttles, while not stopping exercising. We used to get about 20 exercises and with the shuttles, this gave us about a 35 minute workout. If you need to use more time, just go back to the beginning of the exercises and start over. If you want to increase the effort, run MORE shuttles or run them faster.
You could of course do this outside. The trainer used to take us on a 3 mile run around a hilly course. Because we were all ages and fitness levels, he couldn’t just get us to run, so we ran a certain distance, with the fast / fitter ones being made to turn back and run that part again while the older/slower ones caught up. Every so often, we stopped and did a stationary outdoor type exercise, which allowed us to recuperate a little. So you could run a short distance, stop and do an exercise, run another distance, stop and do an exercise, try a HIT – high intensity run for a few seconds, then stop and do an exercise, etc. There was also a hill included in the run. Some of us walked up it, others ran but we all joined together again at the top, with the faster ones doing exercises to allow the slower ones to catch up.
im 21 and I want to take a HGH supplement in capsule form…a few people are telling me it can give me erectile disfunction and liver disease a few years down the line like when im 29 30 years old…is this true? or will it be safe if I only take it for a couple of months?
HGH supplements in low-dose, safe-administration forms (like tablets, creams or under-the-tongue forms) are approved by the FDA on the market under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. There shouldn’t be side effects if you choose a quality product.
However, the Federal Trade Commission has seen no reliable evidence to support the claim that these products have the same effects as prescription HGH, which is always given by injection.
Apart from the obvious fact that health and social is from pregnancy to death and early years is simply early years, is there a difference between each course in college? And will each one be able to get me different jobs? Any information would be helpful as im currently debating whether to apply for either of them – thanks.
early years mainly looks at development and care for children aged 12 and under whilst health and social covers hospital nursing to being a dentist to working with children. Health and social care will allow you to have a wider job choice after you’ve completed the course
Before sports entertainment was wrestling real or what?
hulkamania was in the 80s and was just a name for hulk hogans popularity at the time,sports entertainment is used because its not a real sport its acting,real wrestling in the Olympics is classed as a real sport,but not as entertaining.
I’ve wanted to study sports medicine because I enjoy working with helping people and I also love sports.
But I was wondering what type of jobs most people will get.
Thanks for your time!
Sports medicine isn’t a major.
You need to become a doctor to specialize in sports medicine
I am doing a literature review paper on anti-aging skin. I focused on anti-aging skin because I am interested in this organ but so far all I have is the beginning part of the introduction. Because I cannot see which way my paper will go I don’t know how to keep my paper going. I’ve gathered different scholarly articles of treatments for anti-aging. I’m having a bit of writers block. Any ideas on a format? i’d appreciate it.
You can start with what anti ageing is exactly, then elaborate all about anti ageing. All the best.

What kinds of things will help increase my HGH levels? What kinds of foods should I eat? What time of day should I be exercising? How long should I be exercising? If someone could give me some healthy ways to help me with this it would mean a lot. I also know sleep is a big factor and I try to get around 9 hours a night.
Dear Dylan, Well first I’m glad you want to get your HGB naturally.VS. Shots and other things that are no good. HGH, or human growth hormone, also known as somatropin or simply GH, is a peptide hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. A non-steroidal hormone, it regenerates tissues for growth and repair of many cells in the body. Low GH levels cause erratic sleep patterns, bone loss, increased body fat and decreased muscle mass, strength and mental function.Take in only low-glycemic or slow-digesting carbohydrates throughout the day. Low-glycemic examples are apples, pears, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice or wheat pasta. Simple sugars that are high-glycemic spike insulin levels. Not only does this lead to body-fat storage, but it severely blunts the release of growth hormone, Perform weight-training intensely with high repetitions. The burn you will feel in your muscles is the build-up of lactic acid. Lactic acid signals our bodies to produce more growth hormone. Try a range between 12 and 30 repetitions to reach the lactic threshold.Take the amino acids L-arginine and L-lysine together before exercise and sleep. The combination of these has shown to increase growth hormone production by up to 700 percent. As little as a gram will do, but take 3 to 5 grams for optimal results.Take 0.5 to 5 mg of melatonin before bed. A hormone that governs over sleep patterns, melatonin has been shown to increase growth hormone levels by up to 157 percent.Take 1.5 to 3 g of GABA immediately before bed. GABA, or gamma amino butyric acid, has been shown to increase growth hormone production by 200 percent.Take 2 to 10 g of glutamine after a workout or before bed. As little as 2 g can significantly boost GH levels.Get adequate sleep to ensure high growth hormone levels. Most of our GH is produced in the first few hours of sleep Use a sleep mask to block out light, allowing melatonin, the sleep hormone, to surge, and get a deeper, more restorative sleep.(8-9 hrs. ) .Consume a high-protein, low-carbohydrate snack before going to bed. The amino acids will help to boost GH, while avoiding too many carbs will keep insulin at bay so that it cannot inhibit growth hormone production. Also please use Steam fenugreek herbs or enjoy as a tea. I hope you got all the information needed to get your natural HGH if you need more advise please ask will be glad to help good luck best wishes ..
So yea, what exercises should i do to that releases more HGH to make me grow taller? Im 15 years old and 170cm so 5 foot 7.
Your GENETICS have already pre-determined what your final height will be.
You cannot re-program genetics.
You cannot MAKE yourself grow taller.
You must learn to have patience – & wait to see what all develops.
You will not finish puberty until at least age 21 – or later.
Exercise is the best way to increase testosterone & growth hormone levels.
In addition to improving mental and physical health, regular exercise promotes healthy sexual function and helps to improve sexual virility. Aim to exercise at least 4-5 times per week, incorporating moderate cardiovascular exercise in addition to strength training. Regular exercise promotes healthy blood circulation and increases testosterone and growth hormone levels, all of which promote increased sexual virility and sexual function.
How would I go about structuring and implementing a fitness program for a 9 year old male who has never undergone any serious physical training before? I understand that you should not use weights due to the risk of stunting growth and that you should provide a nutritious diet with a balance of protein and carbs. What I want to know is what exercises and how many reps, sets and circuits should I apply to increase muscle growth and density and how much cardio should be required to improve stamina? I have never done this before and so if you can give as detailed a reply as possible that would be helpful.
You really need to start where he is at. That is, check out his fitness levels. Children normally do lots of running around, climbing, kicking ball, throwing stones, cycling, swimming etc. Start off with these and see how well and far he can swim, run, play ball, etc. Even working on improving his abilities to swim, and his stamina for cycling, playing ball, walking, running, etc, will help. If he can walk 1 mile or run or cycle 1 mile already, then work on extending the distance, or shortening the time for these.
A child of 9 years of age could be expected to help with household chores that might involve a bit of weightlifting, such as leaving out rubbish, bringing in wood or coal, etc, making the bed, which involves lifting the mattress. You could see what he can do in those areas and build on them. I would not be so worried about stunting growth as hurting his back. If you want to improve his fitness, then there is no need for heavy weights (these could hurt his joints). You could introduce a few weights using a filled water bottle in each hand but why not use his own body weight for things like press ups, squats etc. If he is not able to do these (perhaps because of weight or low fitness levels), then get him to do more exercise of the swimming, cycling, walking type. Children that age should be active for at least 90 minutes a day doing these kinds of activities.
