Good and Bad about a Golf Rangefinder

A golf rangefinder is helpful when you are playing a golf game, and it could help you to measure the distances to several points on a golf course. In fact, it comes as an independent device or as a software, which is equipped with other equipment. A golf rangefinder is better at setting up the distance to particular points particularly in comparison to the traditional ways of measuring the distance.

Using the best golf rangefinder is a good way for new players to improve their skills as they practice the game a lot to help you have a right direction on a golf course.

There are a lot of golf rangefinder version, but they almost fall into 2 main types: a laser or a GPS rangefinder. The followings are the pros and cons of those devices: (more…)

That first marathon

When you watch a marathon in person or on television, do you have an emotional response and think that you’d like to run one someday? Have you ever seen pictures of people older than yourself running in a marathon, and thought that if they can do it, so can you-then started dreaming about it? The marathon will do that to you and it deserves all the mystique and tradition that surrounds it. It’s a special chance to set a long-term challenging goal, break it down into smaller goals, and proceed all on your own to achieve what I think is a fantastic human accomplishment. The strength and self-knowledge it takes to transport yourself to a finish line 26 miles, 385 yards away can be yours, if you prepare well. It’s a labor-but you can’t beat the pride that comes with crossing that finishing line. You will never forget your marathon for as long as you live.

FOR STARTERS

If you’ve been running for at least a year, done some shorter races, and have been running 20 or more miles a week for the last three months, you may be ready to begin training for the marathon. If you need to build up to 20 miles a week, remember to do so gradually-don’t add more than 10 percent of your current mileage per week. You need to pick a race to work toward. The training program here allows for six months of preparation (or less if you’re a_ more advanced runner), so you may think about entering a spring marathon. There are almost 100 marathons in the United States to choose from and many of them are held in the spring. Try to pick one fairly close to home. This will fit into your routine best and the weather conditions may be closest to those in which you trained. Since there are small local marathons and large festive ones, give some thought to what appeals to you. (more…)

What are the Best Running Shoes for People who have High Arches for Making Sport Experience more Memorable?

It is worth stating that most of the runners have much neutral arches. It simply means that their feet neither move outward nor inward however, instead keep the natural footstep. It is vital to mention that it never mean that their arches would remain neutral & never develop issues.

Nevertheless, in majority of the cases people who never develop problems over pronate. It happens as their feet move inward towards big toes. It is extremely common in those people who have even feet.

I would like to mention that high arches usually indicate the people also supinate. It means that their feet move outward towards their ankles as they walk on. It can lead to huge numbers of the painful and uncomfortable foot part conditions.

Few might indicate ankle strain, stress fractures, shin splints & rupturing of ligaments. Moreover, plantar fasciitis is particularly common in all those people who always supinate, also identified    as under pronator. (more…)

Play hard, breathe deeply: can an ancient method of breath control help you function better, faster and longer – and stay healthier, too?

Five years ago Joanne Arnold Madden, a second-place finisher in the 1989 Ms. America bodybuilding contest, had literally exercised herself to exhaustion. She spent long hours in the gym, popped painkillers and muscle relaxants as if they were candy, and found the “zone”–the exercise high that kicks in when mind and body are completely integrated and performance flows almost effortlessly–ever more elusive.

“I threw in the towel,” admits the 38-year-old resident of Maine, a former Ms. Maine and Ms. Natural New England and the mother of three. “For years I’d gotten titles, but I’d been beating the hell out of my body. I couldn’t continue, knowing that I was fundamentally destroying what I’d tried to build. I wanted to train, but I didn’t want to have to pay the price of fatigue, injury and exhaustion.”

Although she doesn’t compete anymore, Madden is still very active, counting tennis, cycling, swimming and weight training among her physical pursuits. But she no longer stresses her body to do them. Her resting heart rate has dropped from 75 to 42, and her working heart rate never exceeds 120 beats per minute (a figure she used to exceed by merely walking). Yet she’s as strong and well defined as ever. She rarely tires or pulls a muscle, and what’s more, says this athlete who knows what it is to exercise hard, her workouts are “blissful.”

What caused such a transformation? The answer is something so basic that it seems almost absurd: Madden finally learned how to breathe.

Breathing is a skill everyone knows, right? That’s what most people think, and that’s why it’s been an often-ignored aspect of training. But take a deep breath. Did you open your mouth? Was your chest the only thing that moved? Then you could probably use a lesson, too, says John Douillard, a licensed chiropractor and former professional triathlete who runs the holistic mind-body-health-and-fitness center, John Douillard’s LifeSpa in Boulder, Colorado. Don’t feel bad; you’re in illustrious company. Tennis pro-Martina Navratilova, former world-class cyclist Davis Phinney, even the Philadelphia Eagles football players, have trained themselves to breathe more deeply in order to improve their performance.

Penny Board comparison

You are looking for a Penny Board but you do not have any ideas which one to buy? This useful comparison review would make it easier to make your consideration.

Which size to choose

Firstly, you have to be very clear about the board’s size. You would select between the 22 inch Penny Board and the 27 inch Penny Board (Nickel). The Nickel Penny Board is 5 inch longer and about 1.5 inch wider than the 22 inch (classic) Penny Board, meaning that it is more stable when driving and easier to direct. Nevertheless, it is a little bit larger and bulkier than the smaller board, but it is neither worse nor better, both types are great skateboards.

Which brand to buy?

If you have considered a particular size, then the next step is to choose the manufacturers of the Penny Board. Does it have to be the original of Australia Penny board which presumably provides the best quality on the market, is a famous brand and manufacturer, or is a Penny board from an intermediate producer with equal quality ?

For me, I personally use a 22 inch Penny Board of Ridge brand for about 60 USD, then make comparison with the original of 22 inch Australian Penny Board and can not see any true difference in either the process, even in moving behavior. Thus, I strongly suggest to all those who do not place so much value on the brand and would like to have the most favorable Penny board, either the 22 inch “Classic Cruiser” or the 27 inch “Large Classic Cruiser” of the Ridge brand, which are both very great cruiser boards. There you just get for abound 60 ÚD the smaller board or for about 63 USD the bigger one, which both could keep pace with the more expensive Penny board of Australian Penny. (more…)

Winter Warm-up

The fittest women in the West, elite skiers, share their pre-winter full-body workout. Even if you live in the tropic, it’s your lift ticket to higher fitness.


The first day back on the slopes, the biggest air most of us get is the kind we suck into our lungs. Meanwhile, in Crested Butte, Colorado, local skiers float on air, turning through fresh patches of powder. What’s their secret? Two preseason conditioning classes: one for building strength, the other for endurance. Combined, they make an effective training routine that anyone can benefit from. Whether you summit mountains or sweat at sea level, this workout will help you go faster and harder in any activity (and burn around 450 calories an hour to boot). Plus, it will develop explosive power, flexibility and balance.
The winter warm-up was started by a couple of ex-ski racers who wanted to get into prime shape during the fall, when the rain and mud make the Rockies too slick for mountain biking. The classes caught on, even with nonskiers. (more…)
