How much muscle recovery time’s needed between abs workouts?

If you’re not allowing enough muscle recovery time between abs workouts, you’re harming your efforts to get ripped rather than helping them along.

Zebedeerox‘s insight:

Good Good Friday, everyone!

Thinking of getting a couple of extra workouts in over the Easter holiday?  Be sure to read my weekly round-up of the hot-topic in all of the #fitness mags this week:

>> Muscle recovery time: should I or shouldn’t I? <<

The buzz is that you may actually be putting under-recovered muscles in reverse if you’re not adequately resting them, feeding them or if you’re leaving them totally idle on days off.

As well as a story about how I got the whole concept wrong when I first started working out all those years ago, there are five great tips for speeding up muscle recovery time between workouts.

It’s so easy to get misinformed, I totally understand why you would be burning your muscles out instead of growing them. This article will help you understand whether or not you are and what to do about it.

It will also help prepare your body for the next session without being too demanding, whether you’re feeling the effects of an over-enthusiastic workout or not.

So, permit me to be nosy, if you would: are you working to a bespoke exercise and diet regime or making it up as you go along?

Good for you if you are working out, even if it’s only random with no measurable goals.

Total kudos to you guys and gals who are working to a program.  How’s it going and what #sixpackabs routine do you follow religiously and is it bringing the results you expected?

The good news is with *The Definition Method*, despite regular workouts, there’s plenty of muscle recovery time in between workout days to give your washboard time to heal and eventually reveal.

If you’ve not got an #absworkout program yet – or an allover fitness and diet regime that’s not going to break the bank or be _too_ demanding on your time or body – check out The Definition Method 10-minute intro today, whilst you’ve got an extra 10 minutes: The Definition Method – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how simplified Martin has made his program.

And be sure to avail yourself of the ten secret ways to burn fat series he’s put together, too.  It’s a killer and some of the tips are _soooo_ obvious when you understand them, you’ll wonder why you never thought of them yourself.

I’m in there; sign up with me after you’ve watched the video

I’ll help you reach your goals through our inner circle fan page.  See you on the inside.  And Happy Easter!

Tiger’s back on top, but where’s the European Challenge coming from?

See on Scoop.itUK Golf

A confident, steady Tiger Woods cruised at Bay Hill and reclaimed the No. 1 ranking. But his comeback won’t be complete until he wins that elusive 15th major championship, writes Golf Magazine’s Alan Bastable.

Zebedeerox‘s insight:

It grates me to say it, but Tiger Woods is back.  But why do I feel this way?

For the first time since I’ve been commentating on golf, Tiger’s at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Last time he was there, my wife and I were sat in our appartment in Tenerife watching the miners being lifted out of a collapsed mine in Chile.

Lee Westwood knocked Tiger off the top of golf’s world rankings and the number one spot, despite changing hands a few times, has not lef the UK since.

That was until Monday, when Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill for the 8th time in his career and hardly broke sweat to do it.

The only other golfers who look capable of reigning in Tiger at the moment are Brandt Snedeker and Justin Rose.

Whilst the media have been concentrating on ‘the comeback’, Brandt and Justin are making their own inroads in the OWGR almost under the radar.

True enough, with his win at Bayhill, Tiger has dumped Snedeker off the top of the Fedex Cup leaderboard as well as usurping Rory McIlroy at the top of the OWGR.

But just look where Snedeker and Rose are.  Snedeker’s holding onto second in the Fedex Cup and has climbed to fifth in the OWGR.

Justin Rose is now third in the OWGR, becoming the highest placed English golfer in the world.

I’m not certain, but I suspect with Westwood and Donald’s jaunts as world number one over the past three years, it’s the first time Rose has held that lofty position.

But this is where it grates.  This is where it hurts, being a European golf fan.

Where has the challenge been from McIlroy, Donald and Westwood to stop what’s seemingly an unchallenged domination of golf by arguably the greatest golfer of all time in Woods?

They shared the top three places for so long – and by such a distance – it seems unthinkable that Luke Donald could now be sitting in fourth and Lee Westwood a lowly thirteenth in the OWGR.

Will there be a Major winner from the Eastern Atlantic shores in 2013?  Or will US golf dominate?

Will someone other than Justin from UK Golf show that they’re interested in winning a title this year?  Yes, I’d love to see Justin pick up a major – he’s the most deserving golfer from Europe by a long shot.

But honestly, a Rose by any other name would smell as sweet…

DarrellSuper6 Week 33 Predictions

Britain’s “White Weekend”, as it’s being dubbed, has had an effect on the Super 6 fixtures, this week.
Typical, the snow’s struck when all the fixtures are from League 1 – if they’d been from The Premier, the grounds may well have survived this unseasonal drop of white stuff.

So, to get on with it, here are our predictions for Week 33:

For those unfamiliar with League 1, here’s the table as it stands:

League 1 - 19th March 2013

League 1 – 19th March 2013 c/o SKY Sports

There’s a link on the Get Thet, Go!! home page to the Super 6 site if you’d like to have a pop yourself.  Join us later for the results.

Alternatively, join/follow me during the week on Google+: +Jason Darrell

Please note, due to there only being four fixtures, the jackpot has been reduced to £5,000; here’s what SKY has to say about it:

Weather hits Super 6 (Week 33)

Please note that following the postponements of Colchester v MK Dons and Shrewsbury v Oldham, this week’s jackpot is reduced to £5,000, with a guaranteed £5,000 for the person who scores the most points.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your predictions before 3pm today.

DarrellSuper6 Week 31 Predictions

Here we go, then , with this week’s Super 6 predictions for the DarrellSuper6 League:

 

 

What on earth has happened at the bookies this week?

We’ve been used to seeing some extremely low odds over the last few weeks, as low as 50/1-ish for the accumulators for the Super 6 matches.

This week, it’s mental!

For the sets of predictions above, the odds are as follows:

  • Jay: 715/1
  • Les: 292/1
  • Jord: 463/1
  • Ken: 574/1
  • Pat: 902/1
  • Micky D: 599/1

Those are some astounding figures for 6 matches.  It’s a sign that our three teams are playing today, though.

Villa, Albion and Wolves on the fixture list may mean there’s a little more predicting with our heart rather than our heads than usual.

I wonder what combinations are delivering low odds, this week?  Certainly none that we’ve picked.

We’ll be back a little later with a round-up of the results and next week’s fixtures – hopefully devoid of any matches that trigger emotional betting.

We’ll try to fit in a PDC Darts round-up and bring you the latest from the WGC Cadillac in the US where Justin Rose looks like he might struggle to defend his title after shooting his first over-par round of the season, yesterday. Me and my big mouth, eh?

However, as we’ve had to extract all of our posts from FeckTV.com whilst the site prepares for a makeover, there’s a bot of work to do over on The Flying Feck to categorise the 100+ posts I’m babysitting in the interim.

Okay – fingers crossed – rollover jackpot today of £125,000 for all 6 and £6,000 for the most right in the event that no one wins the big one.

Have a great afternoon – see you back here later with the scores on the doors, Miss Ford.

#Golf Drive: LinkedIn The Clubhouse, UK Tour 2013

Guest Post by Kay @ Brand You Brilliant #LinkedIn #socialmedia

Who wants to host a “LinkedIn The Clubhouse Day” during our UK 2013 Tour?

Golf & LinkedIn go hand in hand, both being perfect for #networking.

But are golfers making the most of the opportunity? It seems not.

I think we could all do with a helping hand when it comes to improving our social media efforts.

The problem is, we don’t like to admit that we’re behind the times.

That’s where businesses like BrandYouBrilliant come into their own.

Bringing networking back to the clubhouse

Getting on in business is often about who you know, your contacts, your network.

The golf course is, has been and always will be a place for strengthening that network and cementing those deals.

However, more and more often, a large percentage of any deal’s been put to bed long before the golf bag’s out the back of the Range Rover.

And even more typically, the nitty gritty’s been discussed on social media networking sites, LinkedIn being the weapon of choice for the golfing niche.

This year’s UK Tour is all about bringing networking back to the clubhouse, even if it’s just for a one day event, an event that you can host.

It’s perfect for those missing out on the buzz that used to fill the 19th, but is now flitting through cyberspace, instead.

Think of LinkedIn as an extension of your clubhouse

On LinkedIn, you’ve got the perfect environment to then go on and strengthen new and existing business network connections.

However, so few golfers in business know how to make the most of this terrific resource that’s at their disposal, it genuinely is an opportunity going begging.

What’s more, LinkedIn doesn’t cost a bean to join.  And the golfing fraternity does like to keep the wheels greased with info rather than that dirty word, cash.

However, time is money and you’ll want to make the most of every minute you spend growing your business network through the groups. communities and personal connections you make on LinkedIn.

BrandYouBrilliant can show you the nuances, the little tricks and, more importantly than anything, help you look like a seasoned pro on the social media circuit, irrespective of what you play off on the course.

Darrellsuper6 predictions and results week 30

Well, here we are.  March.

Where has this footie season gone?  Certainly Wolves and Villa fans know the answer: down the pan.

Baggies fans, on the other hand, will wonder what all the fuss is about, knocking on the doors of Europe for the first time in thirty years[1], as they are [citation needed1 – that’s a guess].

Manchester United will wonder how they squandered the title last year, given how they’re “doing a Celtic” on the English Premier League this season.

And our local teams in the lower divisions, Walsall and Kidderminster, are showing the big boys how it’s done.  Both had awful starts to the season, but are both genuine contenders for promotion as the season enters its final third.

Perhaps they could rub some of their magic onto the gates of the Molineux or Villa Park, or even St Andrews, as the Blues aren’t out of the woods, yet, either.

Anyhoo, I digress.

How did we get on this week with our Super6 predictions?

The DarrellSuper6 predictions and results for week 30 is what we’re here for.  First, the tweets of the predictions, as they happened:

 

 

At 2:00pm, GMT, I was convinced that one of us was going to hit the jackpot, today.

No, I don’t mean walk up to Adey Lewis and smack him in the gob, although how someone hasn’t already is beyond me.

I mean I thought they looked good enough a spread to get us amongst the prizes.  But you can’t rely on the ‘funny old game’ for anything, can yer?

This, in the end, is how Week 30 panned out:

(alternatively, open Week 30 results in new window)

I only hope that we do better with week 31, although I doubt it as all six of us follow either West Brom, Villa or Wolves.

Full Week 31 fixtures uploaded on the submission form page.

See you next week; happy punting!
