“Our lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” -Walter Anderson
Interesting article recently about the concept of “train gain.” Relevant observations:
Telling athletes they don’t need gel packs, sports bars or specialty drinks is surprising since advertisements promise the ingredients are needed for maximum performance. “Most people are convinced by the manufacturers that you have to have this stuff flowing into your mouth, and that’s not the case,” Friel said.
“Train gain can also creep up on athletes who reward themselves after intense workouts.”
“A mistake a lot of amateur athletes make is they start eating bars, and Gatorade or sports drinks,” Mangieri said. “The real basis of the diet is a nutritious, well-rounded diet.”
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.'”
