    Stuff I Find on the Internet (exercise-related)

    I often come across interesting articles and videos related to exercise, anatomy, yoga etc. I thought it might help someone else, so I'm making a thread where I'll post these links. I try to use reliable sources, although they may occasionally clash in content. Anyway, everyone's welcome to contribute.

    Are Athletes Really Getting Faster, Better, Stronger? - TED talk by David Epstein

    Oh, yes, that's an extremely interesting TED talk. I discovered it a couple of months ago and I've watched it, like, three or four times. Very instructive. Definitely worth sharing!

        I think I posted this some time ago already, but it belongs here.

            This one is quite specific and detailed, but this Dr Preddy is a genius in terms of explaining anatomy. This is my favourite video but there are more his students have posted on Youtube.

                Yoga International is kinda fluky, some articles are a bit out there/under-researched and some are ok. This one seems interesting in lieu of the popularity of foam rolling. I have to do more research on the "rehydrating tissues" part but the rest sounds sensible to me.

                    Ann-Core excellent idea and brilliant thread! Thank you for setting it up here.

                      Another article related to yoga and flexibility - I think it's an important read for yoga practitioners and teachers alike. I am taking Alex Crow's webinar and I have to say that it has greatly impacted my yoga practice and teaching philosophy.

                        Nice reading.
                        I've just finished my very first 6 months of workout. Had 2 injuries (not counting this twisted ankle).
                        Not fighting, bouldering, nor jumping. Both from stretching.

                          Good resource ... but very disappointing, eye-opening, for me...

                            Ann-Core. Great article which I think extends further than just yoga alone. Increasing the awareness of what Im doing and why, thereby training more at a lower intensity more often is yielding more stable results, more energy and less niggles.
                            Thanks for sharing.
