How to Improve the Performance of Your Team

Role of team in sports

I will consider the Chicago Bulls team as my example for this discussion. The Chicago Bulls are an American professional basketball team based in Chicago, Illinois, playing in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

The team is well known for having one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history during the 1990s, winning six championships in 8 years with two three-peats. All six of those championship teams were led by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and coach Phil Jackson. The Bulls won an NBA record 72 games during the 1995-96 NBA season and are the only team in NBA history to win at least 70 games in a single season.

During the 1990s, the Bulls helped spread the popularity of the NBA around the world. The 1998 NBA Finals, the Bulls’ most recent championship appearance, was the most watched championship series in NBA history.

The team was formed in 1960’s but was only made famous during 1990’s and fell off again in the limelight in 2000 up

The 6 Unique Type of Cyclists

Cyclists can be broken up into 6 unique types. Which type you are or would like to be will depend on your reason and purpose for cycling.

Sport Cyclists

This is the most noticeable type of cyclist as they are easy to spot. Sport cyclists usually wear colorful cycling outfits, often go for group rides on weekends, own the best racing or sports bicycles with sometimes very unique looking wheels, travel to races, and are interested in anything to do with racing and top notch ultra-light equipment. If you are into sports cycling, you likely know the best racing magazines or blogs and don’t need to speak French to know exactly what “Tour de France” is all about.

Fitness Cyclists

There are not that many fitness cyclists as compared to some of the other groups of cyclists, perhaps because of the invention of the stationary bike. Fitness cyclists usually cycle alone or at most with a riding buddy who has the same fitness goals. They are less concerned with the style of bike they ride or the outfit

The History and Evolution of Extreme Sports

From barrier breaking auto-racing to the calm and peaceful game of golf, the world of games and sports has always been exciting. While the masses enjoy commonly watched sports such as tennis and soccer, there are many people who are involved in sports that do not have much fan following. Yet, even those sports are enough to fascinate the athletes and audience alike. For instance, kayaking is not a very common sport yet you can find a lot of shops with Kayak accessories and kayak hardware.

There is one kind of sport that is although very popular but only few people are courageous enough to be a part of it as a professional athlete – the extreme sports. The true definition of extreme sports is hard to find, yet it can simply be categorized as a sports or activities that are associated with the adrenaline rush that is felt by the athletes and the audience as well.

Extreme sports are also referred to as action sports or adventure sports because they mostly fulfill the thirst for thrill and adventure. These sports can take participants to the edge of their physical and psychological extreme. Also, these sports

A Guide to Extreme Sports Sunglasses

Although sunglasses are one of the most fashionable accessories we have, they also have to support an extreme lifestyle for sports enthusiasts. Don’t think for a minute, though, that these are mutually exclusive demands. We sporting fools just have to keep a few points in mind when choosing our sport sunglasses so we don’t look like a seventies throwback.

In the beginning sunglasses were more practical than fashionable. They were designed simply to protect our eyes from dirt, dust, direct sunlight and other nastiness. As we began to realize the dangers of Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, sunglasses became a popular accessory, especially at the beach and on the slopes. Once these crowds regularly started donning sunglasses, the big designer brands got involved.

When athletes and people who play sports turn to sunglasses, they often look at features and consider design secondary. In fact, it’s easy to look goofy if you pick the wrong pair of sunglasses. The secret, of course, is to choose a pair that matches the shape of your face. As a rule of thumb, you should select a pair with the opposite shape than your face. For example, if you have a squarish and

Extreme Sports and Exciting Challenges

For those who love the adrenaline rush of high impact sports, well let’s just say the more extreme the more our liking. Some get their kicks racing their motorcycles around the sweeping turns of route 66. Others prefer parachuting in a free fall from 5000 feet.

In my life I have done much and yet still somewhat envy the other extremists as they battle class 5 roaring rapids in a solo canoe, scale 20 foot over hang rocks 1100 feet above the valley below or take an aerobatic stunt plane 30 feet above the bay with only feet to clear in a knife edge maneuver through a make-shift obstacle course.

Then there are those Speed Freaks at the Drag Races on Motorcycles, Top Gun Fighter Pilots playing for keeps in combat and Jet Boat racers; hello and can you say they have the need for speed. Then there are other rich mans sports such a long-distance sailing, NASCAR and Formula One.

Obviously there are more than a few of us adrenaline junkies out there looking for action and the more dangerous and challenging the bigger the draw for real mean living life at its fullest

Abs Training, Why You Need the Right Mind Set

The single most important factor in training your abs is not the diet that you follow, the cardio you do or even your abs exercises; it is having the right mind set. In order to succeed in building strong muscular abs you are required to demonstrate the same qualities that are needed to succeed in anything else in life. First, you need to have a clear vision of the goal you have set yourself, then you need the right plan to put it into action and finally you need to give the plan the time it needs to bear fruit and it is here that the right mind set plays its part.

The reason for this is because few things that we try to achieve run smoothly without coming across obstacles, setbacks or failures along the way. On top of that, it is only natural that there will be times when your energy levels are low or your mood is such that it is easy to just go through the motions or miss your training altogether. It is also true that sticking faithfully to a calorie controlled diet can sometimes be difficult when you are constantly bombarded

The Truth About Natural Bodybuilding

Over the decades, bodybuilding has evolved tremendously but it is generally understood that there are two main factions or philosophies of the lifestyle; natural bodybuilding and pharmaceutical bodybuilding. Around the time drug use entered the sporting arena, the lines between the two were more blurred and it wasn’t particularly easy to spot an enhanced athlete. Today however, the line between the two can be more clearly defined. Those who take the chemical alternative have perfected the dosage combination’s to develop muscles that far exceed even the most gifted of natural lifters. Just watching a natural bodybuilding show and comparing the contestants to it’s professional counterpart, it’s easy to view them as completely different sports, which they really are.

All bodybuilding associations promote natural bodybuilding, yet it is seldom practiced by the world’s top bodybuilders. In fact, none of those at the peak of competitive bodybuilding are natural bodybuilders. The IFBB Mr. Olympia, considered by many to be the greatest bodybuilding title in the world, is an excellent example of pharmaceutical bodybuilding. In competitive bodybuilding, it seems that winning has everything to do with how you play the game. Pharmaceuticals such as diuretics, growth hormone, beta-blockers, insulin, EPO,
