Healthy Buffs: Making gains with your rest days

first_img Published: Nov. 13, 2018 • By Health and Wellness Services When it comes to classes or work, we recognize that a few days off can be recharging and renewing. When working out this can be harder to see; while we may think more exercise equals better results, science says this isn’t the case. Here’s why rest days are so important to see the gains you’re working toward.Growth daysFirst, we need to change our thinking: Days away from the gym might be known as rest days, but really, they’re growth days. Downtime between workouts (whether you’re lifting, doing cardio or training for a sport) is when our bodies have a chance to actually build muscle.Strenuous workouts cause muscle breakdown, while rest allows our bodies to build it back up. If there are no growth days in your routine, continuous muscle breakdown may hinder your progress.Growth days also are the time when our bodies replenish glycogen levels. Glycogen is the molecule that fuels activity. As we exercise, our glycogen gets depleted. When we don’t give our bodies enough time and nutritious food between workouts to replenish this fuel source, we start feeling fatigued and tend to underperform.Fewer growth days equals less energy and less gains.Recovery zoneGrowth days are also vital to our mental health. When it comes to training, a good workout can boost endorphins, the “happy hormone,” and help us feel calmer in the moment. However, overtraining can lead to irritability, sleeplessness, diminished performance and decreased appetite, all of which contribute to mental exhaustion and fatigue.Taking two to three days off from intense exercise each week while engaging in some form of active recovery will allow you to get your blood flowing to help facilitate muscle repair.If physical activity is already a part of your long-term emotional health strategy, try building in active rest for your growth days—activities like yoga or a brisk walk will give your muscles time to repair and rebuild without overdoing it. Avoid pushing your body too hard on these days and instead focus on low-intensity movements that allow you to channel energy without activating your nervous system.Prepping for personal recordsIf you’ve ever trained for a race or a big game, you know you don’t go all-out leading up to it: The Broncos wouldn’t play a full, high-intensity game the night before they were in the Super Bowl, and professional runners don’t do an uphill marathon the night before they compete.Why is this? Growth days help prepare our bodies for our best performance. They’re the days when we fuel up, get a good night’s sleep, rest, relax, recharge. We set ourselves up for success and don’t expend all our energy or effort leading up to the big moment.In order to elevate your performance every time you dive into the pool, step into the weight room or hit the track, start thinking of it like your next big event. Build in growth days before you want to hit a personal record or see improvements to allow your body to be in its best shape for that to happen.For more ways to make your rest days count, schedule a session with a personal trainer at The Rec to review your goals and strategies to achieve them. And be sure to take advantage of the MSK Clinic for a free 30-minute consultation with a physical therapist about any pains or strains you might be feeling.Healthy Buffs is a weekly series with tips and information on a variety of health topics important to college students.

RadioShack recovery relies on Sprint lawsuit

Diana came to GSMA from her former role as Editor of Wireless Week and CED Magazine, digital-only… Read more US electronics retailer RadioShack is looking to emerge from its latest bankruptcy proceeding with a new focus on its e-commerce business. However, the company is banking on winning a lawsuit filed against Sprint to fund its recovery.According to a report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, RadioShack will head to court in Wilmington, Delaware, on 25 October for a hearing on its reorganisation plan. The company proposed to move forward with an online-centric model, supplemented by 27 corporate-owned stores and a smattering of 400 franchised dealer locations in small communities across the country. In particular, the company plans to maintain company-owned locations in Texas, Colorado and New York.Sprint’s roleIn its prime, RadioShack owned more than 7,000 stores across the country. The company first filed for bankruptcy in 2015 after a long slog against competitors like online retailer Amazon and operator-owned phone stores. Coming out of the proceeding, RadioShack inked a deal with US operator Sprint to co-brand more than 1,400 retail locations. The move helped Sprint double its retail presence.However, RadioShack filed for bankruptcy a second time in March this year, resulting in the immediate closure of around 200 locations and leaving in jeopardy some 1,300 more. In a press release at the time, RadioShack said the filing was triggered by a number of factors, “most notably the surprisingly poor performance of mobility sales.”Kevin Crull, Sprint’s president of omnichannel sales, in March said the operator was planning to take over “several hundred” of the retail locations left in limbo by the filing. Sprint since embarked on a massive distribution push, opening hundreds of new locations across the US.In June, though, RadioShack filed a lawsuit against Sprint alleging the operator used confidential information gleaned from the companies’ co-branding venture to open 200 competing stores. RadioShack also claimed Sprint failed to provide inventory and staff for the shared locations, and said the move hindered its success. RadioShack is seeking $500 million in damages, which would be the primary source of funding used to pay its creditors and support the company’s recovery efforts.

I’ve been blessed to work with such an incredibly small team and see how a crazy amount of focus can produce an app used by so many people all over the world,” he said in a statement on Facebook, adding that he is “taking some time off to do things I enjoy outside of technology”.“I’ll still be cheering WhatsApp on – just from the outside,” added Koum, who will also step down from Facebook’s board of directors.While Koum did not explain his reason for leaving, a report in The Washington Post said he was not happy with Facebook’s attempts to use the personal data of WhatsApp users and weaken its encryption standards.The high profile Cambridge Analytica data privacy leak might have been the last straw, although the report said Koum had his made his decision before the scandal.Meanwhile Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg replied to Koum’s post, saying he was “grateful for everything you’ve done to help connect the world, and for everything you’ve taught me, including about encryption and its ability to take power from centralised systems and put it back in people’s hands. Those values will always be at the heart of WhatsApp.”DisagreementsReportedly both Koum and co-founder Brian Acton, who left in November 2017, were against Facebook’s efforts to commercialise WhatsApp, which has no advertising.They also clashed with Facebook over building a mobile payments system on WhatsApp in India, and believed opening up the app to businesses would weaken encryption.The executives did not want WhatsApp’s data going towards creating a user profile across Facebook’s multiple platforms, including Instagram and Messenger, that would be used for ad-targeting or data mining.In August 2016, WhatsApp updated its terms and privacy policy, as it looks to “coordinate more with Facebook” and “test ways for people to communicate with businesses”.The move was met by backlash from regulators in the US and Europe.The Washington Post report revealed WhatsApp employees plan to leave in November when they are allowed to exercise all their stock options under the terms of the Facebook deal.Facebook acquired WhatsApp for around $19 billion in 2014.

Intel 5G ambitions unblunted by modem woes

The vast majority of the 5G market opportunity and profit is in the transformation of network and edge infrastructure, where we are now laser focused.”When Intel announced its 5G smartphone modem exit, it stated it would evaluate the potential for its 5G modem technology in other forms, including PCs or IoT devices.During the call, Swan described this as a “work in progress”.“We haven’t really completed our assessment about what to do with the wonderful IP that we’ve developed, the real strong team that we have and the other opportunities we have, whether it’s in network infrastructure, where we’re really excited about the role we’ll play in 5G, or whether it’s the role that 5G modem plays in these non-smartphone applications,” he said.Apple woesIn an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Swan also confirmed the hardly shock news that Apple’s settlement with Qualcomm was behind Intel re-evaluating its smartphone modem plans. Intel was lined up as the supplier of 5G modem technology for the iPhone maker, but rumours swirled it was missing deadlines, leading Apple to review its position.“In light of the announcement of Apple and Qualcomm, we assessed the prospects for us to make money while delivering this technology for smartphones and concluded at the time that we just didn’t see a path,” he told the newspaper.NumbersOn a group level, the company reported a Q1 profit of $4 billion, down from $4.5 billion in the prior-year period, on revenue which was flat at $16.1 billion.It recorded revenue growth of 4 per cent to $8.6 billion in its PC-centric business, which it attributed to a strong mix of higher-performance products and strengths in gaming, large commercial and modem.But its Data-centric activities produced mixed results, with revenue down 5 per cent collectively. In the data centre, cloud revenue grew 5 per cent; the communication service provider segment decreased 4 per cent; and enterprise and government was down 21 per cent, leading to an aggregate 6 per cent decline to $4.9 billion.The company saw growth in its IoT unit (up 8 per cent to $910 million), but there were declines in the memory business (down 12 per cent to $915 million).“Looking ahead, we’re taking a more cautious view of the year, although we expect market conditions to improve in the second half,” said Swan.

This will make the electricity in Uganda more affordable,” the financier stated.The IFC said it would give $100 million under a classification of Loan A and $60 million as Loan B. This means that the IFC has the option of selling the $60 million debt to other players in the market including commercial banks.The international finance institution has also offered to shield the project from future movement in the price of loans in what is commonly referred to as interest rate hedging, media stated.Bujagali EnergyFor a while now, the 250MW Bujagali has been under pressure to lower its power prices as the government pushes to increase electricity connections in the country.

TIEC Wrap-up: Rowan Willis and Diablo VII Win $75,000 Grand Prix

first_img Email* Horse Sport Enews Rowan Willis (Ocala, FL) and Diablo VII sped through the jump-off in a time of 34.045 seconds to take the win in Saturday evening’s $75,000 Tryon Resort Grand Prix – the venue’s first night class of 2020 and first evening contest on the recently fully-engineered Tryon Stadium footing. Kristen VanderVeen (Wellington, FL) and Bull Run’s Risen, a 2006 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Utopie x Indoctro) owned by Bull Run Jumpers Inc., claimed second place after their 35.185 second jump-off round, while third went to Amanda Derbyshire (Wellington, FL) aboard Cornwall BH, a 2008 Holsteiner stallion (Con Air x Cambridge) self-owned with Gochman Sport Horse LLC, combining efforts to put in a clear jump-off round in 40.484 seconds.Twenty horse-and-rider pairs tested the Michel Vaillancourt (Aiken, SC) designed course, with seven combinations returning for the jump-off in front of nearly-empty stands while horse shows are still closed to the public. Willis and the 2008 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Douglas x Cavalier) owned by himself and Lucinda Huddy managed to shave seconds off the leading time with a few speedy riders behind them in the order of go, ultimately holding onto the lead, he explained.“It was a tough enough course; it wasn’t a big field, but it was a strong field of riders,” Willis relayed of the first Grand Prix held under the lights in Tryon Stadium since 2019. “I thought it was a nice course, and it obviously suited me! But it was nice to be jumping again under the lights. I always like riding in this arena. Unfortunately we don’t have the crowd right now, but it’s still a good atmosphere and a lovely ring to ride in.”Willis detailed that he initially didn’t think he had beaten VanderVeen’s time, but that it felt great to go clear. “It’s been a bit of a four-fault first couple of weeks for me, so it was nice to jump clear, and Diablo was in good form. I’m not really sure where I won it, but it’s always handy to watch Kristen go first – she’s such a fast rider – so I actually didn’t know whether I was quicker than her. I added in a couple of places, but I think maybe I just had a tighter turn to the fourth fence. Then, it was just waiting to see how the others went.”While planning his season loosely like many others, Willis acknowledged that his string of horses allows him to rely on depth rather than on his World Equestrian Games™ mount, Blue Movie: “Diablo has done a wonderful job for me over the last year and has won me a lot. He’ll do a couple more Grand Prix classes, and take the pressure of Carrots [Blue Movie] a bit. I’ll be here for the next four weeks. Then, I’ll probably go to Saugerties, have maybe a bit of a break, and then it looks like we’re back here.”Willis concluded by commenting on the new fully-engineered riding surface in Tryon Stadium and being back to horse shows again. “It’s great that they’ve put the new surface in, and it’s just good to be back showing. Obviously, there are different regulations in place, and it’s not quite the same without the crowd, but it’s good that the show is doing the work and getting us back to competing with some decent prize money. It’s good to get the sport going again!”For full results from the $75,000 Tryon Resort Grand Prix, click here.Kristen VanderVeen and Bull Run’s Divine Fortune Earn $25,000 Horseware Ireland Welcome Stake WinKristen VanderVeen (Wellington, FL) and Bull Run’s Divine Fortune were the fastest pair of the day in Thursday’s $25,000 Horseware Ireland Welcome Stake in Tryon Stadium, stopping the short-course timers in 27.668 seconds for the win. Todd Minikus (Lake Worth, FL) took both second and third place aboard Todd Minikus LTD entries, riding Juju VDM, a 2009 Belgian Warmblood mare (Toulon x For Pleasure), to a time of 28.934 seconds and piloting Calvalou, the 2007 Oldenburg gelding (Calvaro F.C. x Baloubet du Rouet), to a clear round in a time of 29.897 seconds for third.VanderVeen noted that the 2009 Dutch Warmblood mare (Padinus x Caruso) owned by Bull Run Jumpers Six LLC has been in her string for a few years and is “one of the most competitive horses I’ve ridden. She’s always fighting for me,” VanderVeen shared. “She’s special to ride because she gives you a hundred percent every time she goes into the ring. She’s won a lot of classes for me.”“I really liked the course,” VanderVeen said about the track. “It suited my mare very well. She was quite careful with the vertical-to-vertical combination after the triple bar,” she elaborated. “She’s very good at those things. I thought [the course] really played to her strengths.”Like many competitors, VanderVeen is still playing her competition season by ear, but plans to stay at TIEC for the summer. “It’s really exceeded my expectations,” she concluded of her competition experience at the venue. “I feel that they’ve done a great job. Everybody has been very generous and kind. It’s gone very well and everyone seems to be quite happy with it.”Todd Minikus and Amex Z Collect $25,000 Wednesday Classic WinTodd Minikus (Lake Worth, FL) and Amex Z, the Bit By Bit Groups’ 2009 Zangersheide mare (Andiamo Z x Landaris), stopped the jump-off timers in 27.027 seconds to take the win in Wednesday’s $25,000 Wednesday Classic. David Blake (Wellington, FL) and Don’t Touch Du Bois, a 2009 Belgian Sport Horse mare (Kashmir Van Schuttershof x Indoctro) owned by Pine Hollow Farm, put in a 28.907-second round to claim second, while third went to Gavin Harley (Wellington, FL) and Very Chic du Tillard, a 2009 Selle Francais gelding (Diamant De Semilly x Quidam De Revel) owned by E2 Showjumpers, stopping the timers at 30.666 seconds.Santiago Lambre and Doloris Finesse $25,000 Sunday ClassicSantiago Lambre (Wellington, FL) and Doloris, a 2008 Dutch Warmblood mare (Harley VDL x Colorado D) owned by Aurora Rangel De Alba, claimed the $25,000 Sunday Classic win in a time of 30.103 seconds, while second place went to Wellington’s David Blake aboard Don’t Touch Du Bois, Pine Hollow Farm’s 2009 Belgian Sport Horse mare (Kashmir Van Schuttershof x Indoctro), on a time of 30.814 seconds. Third was awarded to Zoubair Bennani (Ocala, FL) and Vishnou Un Prince, Leah Garlan’s 2009 Selle Francais gelding (Banboula Du Thot x Galoubet A), stopping the jump-off timers in 31.504 seconds.Hunter HighlightsSaturday’s $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby resulted in a win for Todd Minikus (Lake Worth, FL) and Rissoa D’ag Bois Margot, the entry owned by Stransky’s Mission Farms Inc., scoring a total of 183 over two rounds.
