Over the past 18 months the media attention given to the Covid-19 pandemic has saturated our TV, radio, social media and every part of our lives as our Governments scramble in a race to try and protect the health of the community. With endless lock-downs, mask regulations, social distancing and other draconian restrictions placed upon the community that we have had to endure, it has all been accepted as part of the trade for “keeping us safe”. I seriously doubt they are really worried about our health for if they were they would be addressing the “hidden pandemic” that has been left unchecked for years, and is about to burst its bubble? That pandemic is OBESITY. When you consider that this population is at the highest risk of developing several deadly diseases, you would think we would have things in place to address this problem. Unfortunately, there is very little focus given to treating the underlying causes of this problem as the medical world is obsessed with finding cures and magic pills. I also believe a serious discussion must be had relating to several interesting questions relating to recording statistics of being overweight such as the use of BMI. And lastly the value of being overweight and fit, versus being overweight and unfit. In this article, I will discuss these interesting questions and more in great detail and give you something to ponder about your own health.

We all know that to excel at sports like Football, Basketball and Soccer you will need an incredible amount of fitness. Skills are great to have, but if you gas out quickly due to poor fitness levels you are of no use to your team. This means you need to spend time improving your running fitness, and unfortunately for many sporting athletes and coaches this is where they make the mistake of over-using endurance focused workouts. Sports like football, soccer, and basketball incorporates multiple high-intensity efforts interspersed with periods of lower-intensity exercise. The physiological demands of these sports require players to be competent in several aspects of fitness, which include aerobic and anaerobic power, muscle strength, and agility. Running in a straight line for 10-15 minutes will improve fitness, but not the specific fitness of what these sports demand. In this article, I will discuss how you can design a running workout that meets all of these demands.
