We are now shooting with two 4k cameras (FS5 and A7Sii). There are still many improvements to be made, and hopefully we'll keep progressing with each video. Ideally we'd get a proper boom mic and audio recorder to improve audio, cinema lenses, and we need greater data storage as we're working with and archiving the huge 4K Pro Res Raw files.

What makes elite athletes thrive or dive under pressure? | The Economist

Psychology is an increasingly important part of elite sport. Winning at the highest levels can depend as much on peak-fitness of the mind as the body.

Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube:

Sponsored by DXC Technology.

for top-level sports people it's not just skill and athleticism they count. So often, it's mind over matter. Psychology is now seen as increasingly vital to winning. In elite sport the difference between success and failure is often the finest of margins.

The annual boat race between Oxford and Cambridge universities is one of the oldest and most prestigious events in the sporting calendar. For the competitors, it's 20 minutes of pure pain but also pure pressure. How the rowers cope with that intense pressure can make the difference between glory and failure.

The Cambridge women's team have won the last two races and this woman has been one of the secrets of their success. Sports psychologist Helen Davis has worked on specific techniques to help the team at the most mentally testing moments in the race. As training for the 2019 race intensifies, just trying to keep up with teammates is mentally grueling.

Understanding what makes athletes cope or panic at those crucial moments is an ever-growing obsession in professional sport - it's the multi-billion dollar question that sports psychologists are constantly trying to answer. Dr Jamie Barker lectures at the world's leading sports science university Loughborough in Britain. In 2013 Jamie helped devise a cardiovascular test. It compared the physiological reactions of athletes who thrive in a high-pressure situation with those who flop. A group of aspiring professional cricketers were set a specific target. The cricketers were warned that their results would be made public and would decide who makes the team and who doesn't. Nearly half the players hit the test for six and scored the runs and most of them went into what psychologists call a challenge state. Over half the batsman found themselves on a stickier wicket and failed to make the runs they mostly entered the so-called threat state. Jamie employs a mental visualization technique that sports psychologists have used with a variety of professional teams. Athletes are asked a picture a set of scales - on one side are their demands, the obstacles to success. They're taught to tip the balance the other way towards their resources, the attributes they possess that can help them.

Sports psychology is sometimes criticized as a phony science but many major sports teams and personalities now use psychologists and there's a growing acceptance that this boosts performances. In sports, as in the world beyond, a mental edge can bring a winning one.

In elite sport the difference between winning and losing often hangs on the smallest of margins. As coaches, teams and athletes press ever harder in pursuit of victory, this series reveals the latest innovative approaches they hope will keep them ahead. From data to design, science to psychology, discover what it takes to find the winning edge.

Peripheral Neuropathy Relief in the Feet & Legs - Ask Doctor Jo

Peripheral neuropathy is basically when you have damage to your peripheral nerves from either a trauma or disease. This can cause your hands and/or feet become numb and tingly. I'll focus on the feet/legs for this video. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at:

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused from diabetes, medications, or even chemotherapy, as well as many other things. Having good flexibility and strength in these areas will help.

The first stretch will be a calf stretch. Sit on the ground with your legs straight out in front of you. You can bend the leg you are not stretching towards you. Put a belt, towel, or dog leash around the ball of your foot. Keep your back and knee straight, and relax your ankle. Pull your foot towards you with the strap until you feel a stretch. Hold this for 30 seconds, and do it three times on each side.

Next are ankle pumps. With your legs straight out in front of you, place a roll just under your ankle so your heel can move freely. Trying to keep your leg straight and moving only at your ankle, pull your foot up towards you, and then push it down like you are pushing on a peddle. Then you will do ankle circles. Again, try not to move your whole leg. Keep the movement at the ankle. Do ten one direction, and then reverse it and do ten the other direction.

Now you will do a simple straight leg raise (SLR). You want to squeeze your muscles tight to lock out the knee and pull your toes towards your head to keep the whole leg straight. This will work your hip flexor muscles when you lift your leg off the ground. Use slow controlled movements to make sure you are using the muscles and not momentum. Start off with ten, and work your way up.

Then, you are going to lie on your side. The top leg is going to stay straight and pull your toes up towards you. Keep your body in a straight line as well. This is going to work your hip abductor muscles. Then you are going to work the bottom leg working your hip adductor muscles. Same as above, keep the leg straight. Start with ten of each of these, and do both sides.

In standing, you will do a heel/toe raise off the ground. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart, come up on your toes as high as you can. Try not to lean forward, but bring your body straight up and slowly come back down. Push off as much as you can so your heel leaves the ground. Then lift your toes off the ground, alternating back and forth. Start off with ten and work your way up to 20-25.

The last exercise will be a balance series. Stand on one foot, but hold onto something sturdy. Try to balance for 30 seconds to a minute. When that becomes easy, just use one finger one each side. Then just one finger for balance, and finally try balancing without holding on at all.

KT Tape: Calf

Calf Pain

The calf muscles are made up of two muscles. The gastrocnemius is the larger muscle and visible on the back of the leg. The soleus is a smaller and wider muscle lower down on the leg and mostly under the gastrocnemius. Each has a lateral head and medial head -- two halves. Both attach near the back of the knee and to the heel via the Achilles tendon. These muscles are responsible for extending the foot as in the push-off phase of running.

Calf muscles can be torn, pulled, or experience cramping due to extreme stretching or overuse. Abrupt acceleration or changes in direction can often be the culprit. Calf injuries are much more common in men than in women, especially among middle-aged athletes. They most always occur acutely, or all at once due to forceful and abrupt acceleration. Unfortunately, once one has had a calf tear, that individual is more likely to have another in the future.

The resulting pain and tightness can be painful, sometimes severe. Often times an audible pop is heard and the individual reports feeling like they were shot in the leg or hit with a stick. More often than not the pain radiates to the feet and to the knee where the muscles start and end. Swelling is common, but should be taken very seriously if severe.

Everyone will recover from calf injuries at a different rate, but using KT Tape will help speed the process, relax the muscles, and relieve the associated pain. Rest, ice, and compression will also be valuable treatments. Severe conditions such as a DVT (deep venous thrombosis -- blood clot), or compartment syndromes, could be the cause of pain. If there is any doubt, please seek professional medical care. Be very careful with NSAIDs as they may cause more internal bleeding and a great risk for DVT movement due to their blood thinning effects.

Thanks to Business As Usual, Bristol for the location.

This indoor cycling workout is definitely not easy but will get you fit very quickly. As with these VO2 Max sessions, it's not advised you do this more than twice per week as otherwise, your intensity may suffer and you won't be able to reach the desired power output. The efforts will mostly last two minutes, featuring some torque style efforts thrown in too. 6 sets of 2 min, broken down into 30s seated, 30s out of the saddle attack, back in the saddle and then one last attack before 3 min recovery.

How To Cycle Faster On Zwift! Training, Recovery & Nutrition Tips plus Spin to Win !

In response to a question relating to what training have I used in order to get faster at Zwift racing, I provide a detailed summary of my approach, during a Cat A race. During the race I cover my polarised approach to cycling training under the guidance of Coach, Ed Laverack, plus the importance of strength work, nutrition and recovery. Additionally I provide a practical demonstration during the race of the benefit of high cadence, which is something I learned from Victor Campenaerts' video, High Cadence Is Key!

RUDIS Wrestling Podcast #37: Exclusive UFC 235 Breakdown with Ben Askren

Matt is wearing a SH Legacy Women’s Tech Full Zip:

The Best Base For MMA
On this episode, Ben Askren and Matt Dernlan breakdown UFC 235, Askren vs Lawler, the Oklahoma State Rogers vs Smith wrestle off, as well as their predictions for the BIG 10 conference tournament. Wrestling is without a doubt proven to be the best background to have under your belt going into mixed martial arts. A lot of the UFC roster either comes from a wrestling background or has trained and become proficient in wrestling during their MMA careers. Seven out of the eight current men's UFC champions come from collegiate or national wrestling backgrounds. Not only is he deeply involved in wrestling world through this podcast and his wrestling academies but his fighting style is mostly pure wrestling styles.

A Champion Mentality (6:31)
Dernlan asks how Askren felt about going from the build-up of his previous fights in promotions such as Bellator and ONE Championship to the press/media monster that is the UFC. Askren said it seemed normal, natural, and almost past due. Similar to his Mental Monday: State Tournament – Just Another Match? where he explained how not to obsess over big matches. That will only hinder your performance. Acknowledge the fact you could either win or lose but don't get caught up in the what ifs of a losing outcome. Dernlan makes a good point that winning or losing will not define you as the person you are, nor will it fundamentally change you.

Simplify and Adjust the Game Plan (13:45)
There is no controversy, in Askren’s eyes, in his win over former UFC Champ Robbie Lawler. Askren does believe Lawler went out for a split second and that there was no way he was getting out of that hold with over a minute and thirty seconds left in the round. Dernlan asks Askren to talk more about adjusting the plan when your intentions are unsuccessful. In the opening minute and sequence of the fight, Askren shot for a double, Lawler sprawled and Askren dragged and almost took his back. Lawler slipped his arm out and shot up onto his feet holding Askren, then dumping him back onto the canvas. The last person Askren experienced with that explosive type of strength was 4x finalist, 2x NCAA Champion Isaiah Martínez. Lawler caught his wrist and Askren took a lot of damage until he could turn on his back, free his arm and grab a hold of him.

The Responsibility of a MMA Referee (18:45)
In the moment, Askren was not worried about the referee Herb Dean stopping the fight. All that was going through his mind was getting a hold of Lawler's wrist that was punching him and getting his other hand free. As a fighter in the octagon, you have a responsibility in a situation where your life could be potentially in danger and you must show you are still actively and intelligently fighting. Askren did so while Lawler was on top of him. If Lawler really never fainted/went out, he failed to properly show the ref that.

Analyzing the Choke (21:04)
In Askren's situation, the bulldog choke was locked up across Lawler's chin and wasn't fully cutting off the flow of air in his windpipe. Instead, Askren's squeeze was primarily restricting blood flow to the brain. When the ref first dropped down to check on Lawler, Askren relaxed and with a blood choke sometimes that's all the person being choked needs. Clearing up confusion to anyone who hasn't been choked out before, Askren explains the fighter awakens immediately after the choke release.

BIG 10 Conference Championship (31:43)
With the final seeds being released for the BIG 10 Championship, Askren and Dernlan give their predictions on the outcomes.
