The 20th Anniversary of Aerobic Gymnastics at the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG)
At the end of 1995, the FIG, in collaboration with the French Gymnastics Federation, organised the 1st “Sports Aerobics” World Championships in Paris.
The World Aerobic Championships were held every year from 1995 to 2000 and since 2000 have been held every two years. To date, 13 World Championships have been held, with at least one on the European, Asian, American and Oceanic continents.
Now 20 years have passed, and it’s time to celebrate with you, the more than 70 member Federations on five continents where Aerobic Gymnastics continues to develop.
For most triathletes out there their journey to Ironman distance racing is an evolutionary proceeding which starts with the sprint triathlon. There are exceptions, and most likely quite a few that simply kick-off their triathlon age-grouper career with an Ironman distance race. However, these individuals are usually in the minority. The evolution of your typical triathlete goes something like this.
Stage 1: Sprint Triathlete:
I wanted to get into shape so I decided to enter a sprint triathlon to lose some weight and help motivate me to train, and to be more healthy. These individuals are usually in need of some exercise and benefit a great deal from their training, coaching, and time spent on the bike, at the pool, and on the trails/road running. They usually feel very vulnerable and much like a fish out of water for several triathlons but they soon become adept at the transitions, pacing strategies, and the whole triathlon culture within a couple years of racing.
Stage 2: Olympic/70.3 or Half-Ironman Triathlete:
If a little is okay then a bit more is better. Or so the belief goes. This may hold true, especially for the Olympic distance racers, depending on one’s goals. Now that is the operative word, “goals”. The triathlete’s goals tend to change from wanting to be healthy and in decent shape to wanting to see where one stands when compared to age mates. This may not always be the case, as there are quite a few ultra-competitive sprint triathletes. However, the tendency in the triathlon/endurance community is “longer is better” when it comes to training and racing.
At this point you will begin to see individuals spending more and more money on coaching, race wheels, bikes, wetsuits and so on. Now the goal has definitely changed from simply being healthy to being competitive in one’s age group. The initial goal of being healthy has suddenly taken a secondary position to placing in one’s age group. As a result, weight training is more often than not neglected for more time on the bike/in the pool/on the road etc.. NSAIDS are beginning to be used more often in order to speed recovery for overuse injury.
Training regiments become more demanding. Diet becomes more focused on weight loss rather than healthy nutrition. As a result, the triathlete begins to start trading health for speed. Fitness increases in one’s specific sport but overall health declines due to over training, poor diet, muscle loss, excessive fatigue, less time for family/loved ones, and so on. Of course this is a continuum and may or may not occur depending on one’s physical attributes, age, life situation (kids) and so on. However, for your typical 30-40 something age grouper, this is usually the case.
Stage 3: Ironman Triathlete:
The Ironman triathlete has completed the distance and may have done so a number of times. This is usually 3-5 years along the evolutionary process of becoming an Ironman. Yet again, there are those that simply go out and complete an … Read More
The iron gym pull up bar is a portable piece of exercise equipment that you can fit in a conventional door frame 24 to 32 inches wide, and supports up to 300 lbs. The durable structure uses leverage to hang from the door frame, so it does not require any screws and does not damage your door; and it takes only a few seconds to be useable. Just as easily as setting it up you can take it down, and store it anywhere in the house. It is Portable, only weighing 4.7 pounds; you can literally take it anywhere and get a good workout any time.
With the ultimate exercise bar, you can easily fit a workout into a busy schedule. It is an affordable option instead of buying expensive and bulky exercise equipment or a gym membership (that you usually do not have time for). This is an ideal choice for people who might not have the space at home for conventional exercise equipment, as you can store it anywhere, even under the bed. This Iron gym pull up bar review describes the advantages of this amazing workout bar over regular exercise equipment, and the basic exercises you are able to perform.
Why the pull up bar?
Regular exercise equipment are expensive. Take note I used "are", implying that you would need more than 1 set to get a good workout. And did I mention that they are expensive? The best work out bar is an affordable multi-function training bar, able to give you a number of different exercises including pull-ups, chin-ups and variations, as well as being a stable base for tricep dips and deep push-ups. You can even fit it in the base of your door for crunches, and you can do all this in a number of seconds. Plus, the pull-up bar is also portable; you can hand-carry it where you go for a consistent workout even if you travel a lot.
I just bought the best in exercise bar;what do I do with it?
If you are a beginner, just remember that chin-ups and push-ups are difficult to do. Do not expect you will be able to perform a dozen reps in a day; it is always generally good idea to build your core first; the muscles around your abdomen and lower back. They are essential for good posture, preventing back pain and improve all areas of athletic ability; a strong core provides the foundations upon which all other muscle gains are made. Also remember to warm up properly, to prevent strains and muscle tears. It is equally important to stretch after a good workout, as it helps flush out lactic acid out of your muscles (a by-product of a good workout) which can prevent some muscle soreness. Good flexibility also allows you to work your muscles through a larger range of motion which will help you get fitter and stronger faster.
There are 3 different grip positions on your exercise pull up bar; … Read More
