Cold cure for sores

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Only 10 seconds more!Ice baths are crucial to post-match recovery, says Crofton Alexander.For rugby players to stay at the peak of their fitness, post-match recovery is vital. They need to be able to train shortly after a match and be ready for the next game, which can be as soon as five days later.Moreover, how well a player recovers can be the difference between longing for the next week to come around and being ready to throw in the towel after week one.Ice baths have been used in professional sport for about ten years, and have been at the centre of debate. They’ve been the subject of extensive and ongoing research, as scientists have discussed what the optimum temperature and time spent in the bath is, whether it’s better to sit or stand, or whether to use an alternative method of recovery.Initially, it was believed that the colder the temperature, the better the outcome would be. he cold constricts the blood vessels and limits the blood flow, slowing down the metabolism. This flushes out metabolic by-products such as lactic acid, which makes the muscles sore after a hard workout.However, recent research has shown that too much time spent in too cold an ice bath can do more harm than good. Muscles are like rubber and become compliant when heated. So if too long is spent in the cold, they will stiffen up.The aim is to restore the body back to its normal state, and in sport this has to happen at an accelerated rate, so the recovery process is manipulated.Ideally, a player will spend between eight and ten minutes in water at 10-15°C straight after a game to reduce initial inflammation of the joints. Then, 24 hours later, they will spend two minutes in cold water followed by two minutes in water at 30-40°C, six times. This is known as hot and cold flushing, and constricts and dilates the blood vessels, getting the blood flowing and softening the muscles.Forwards tend to feel it more in the neck and shoulders, so prefer to sit in the bath, and the backs will be sorer in the lower body and favour standing.Some players hate ice baths, and low-impact exercise such as cycling can also get the blood flowing without using excess energy. But even if the effect of an ice bath is only psychological, it can still help a player prepare for the following week.Crofton Alexander is part of Wasps’ strength and conditioning teamIce baths are good for the joints after a gameUse heat on your muscles the next day center_img If you hate the ice, try cycling insteadlast_img read more

Widespread Panic Will Not Be Touring After This Year

first_imgEarlier today, Widespread Panic keyboardist JoJo Hermann spoke about the band’s future plans in an interview with the Clarion-Ledger in Mississippi, following a two-night stand at the Thalia Mara Hall in Jackson, MS. While the interview mostly discussed the band’s Southern cultural legacy and musical history, some interesting quotes from Hermann confirmed that the band would be lightening their load in the coming years.“We’re really wearing it out this year because we’re basically going to call it touring-wise after this year; we’re not going to tour anymore,” said Hermann in the interview. The article reads that the band “will continue to play shows at places like New Orleans Jazz Fest and at Red Rocks.”Hermann emphasizes that the band isn’t breaking up by any means. “We’re still all brothers and still going to play together … It is really not that big of a deal, I don’t think.” He continued, “It’s part of life… I’ll go home and figure out what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. I will probably go back to Proud Larry’s (in Oxford) and set up a piano.”The news comes just a few months after founding drummer Todd Nance briefly reunited with the group at Panic En La Playa, only to announce that those were his final performances as a member of Widespread Panic. Today also marked guitarist John Bell’s 54th birthday.We’ll be sure to update on this news once we have more information.last_img read more

Late birdie blitz steers East to Seniors crown

first_img Stephen East, the new kid on the senior bloc, staged a grandstand finish to win the English Senior Men’s Championship as summer fittingly returned to Matfen Hall. The competitive Yorkshireman carded a five-under-par 67 with birdies at the closing three holes to take the title by three strokes from Cheshire’s Alastair Brown and Andrew Stracey from BB&O. As a newcomer to this code of golf, East (image © Leaderboard Photography) was arguably one of the favourites. He turned 55 last October, lost a playoff for the Italian Open in his maiden seniors event, claimed his first title in the Spanish Seniors and last week finished joint second in the Irish event. It’s been quite a baptism for East at senior level but little fazes him although securing the English national title brought him some relief. “You don’t know how delighted I am to win this title,” he said. “I feel I’ve got to keep proving myself but this win helps no end. It’s nice to win again after doing well in the mid amateur game but becoming a senior is like starting all over again. “This is a new level where I can compete and I’m having a nice little run. Long may it continue.” With the normal 54-hole championship reduced to a single round shootout after the first day was cancelled through continual rain, it was anyone’s title to win. All of those with England senior caps to their credit were fancied but those who are well bedded-in in the senior game are always looking over their shoulders at the newcomers who are keen to make a mark and frequently do. Defending champion Richard Latham was last year’s ‘new boy’ who grabbed the crown in fine fashion in Bristol. He was expected to be in the shake-up this time and he didn’t disappoint. But his 71 was only good enough for equal fourth place despite his reaching the turn in two under along with former champion David Lane. But few got the better of Matfen Hall’s homeward stretch, but East bucked the trend with his spectacular finish in which he pulled clear of the field. He was sharing the lead with Stracey with a handful of holes to play but birdies at the 16th, 17th and 18th was too much for the rest to handle. On the par five 16, East hit his approach to three feet and holed out, then at the 193-yard 17th he fired a four iron to 12 feet with the same result. At the last he was left with a five-footer and in it went. Overall, East had eight birdies on his card, good enough to win any title. Stracey’s 70 included three birdies as he covered both nines in 35, a performance he described as “a boring round” while Brown found five birdies in his 70 after missing the cut in Ireland last week. Latham made a solid defence of the title but after reaching the turn in 34, couldn’t buy a birdie on the homeward holes and a dropped shot at the 17th denied him a share of second spot. The remarkable David Lane, still sporting a handicap of one at the age of 72, won the 65 and over age group with his 72, while Richard Wood on 71 took the 55-59 group and Peter Higgins the 60-64 group with his 74. But the day belonged to East and for someone with such a remarkable playing career, an England cap has passed him by. He was a reserve 12 years ago and was denied by injury on another occasion. But it is virtually certain a senior call-up is on the cards. “I certainly hope so,” he added. 6 Jun 2014 Late birdie blitz steers East to Seniors crown last_img read more
