BIOLOGICAL RHYTHMS & HEALTH

MARCH 19, 2015 // AARON DAVIS

I write a lot on performance — and make no mistake, it’s what drives my learning and coaching.

But to understand performance I have found it better to understand health.

Health is the foundation that performance is built on. Regardless of what the general fitness gurus say, performance first is not a foolproof approach to health.

WE ARE ALL WRONG.

“If you identify with a mental position, then if you are wrong, your mind-based sense of self is seriously threatened with annihilation. So you as the ego cannot afford to be wrong. To be wrong is to die. Wars have been fought over this, and countless relationships have broken down.” –Eckhart Tolle

Is there anything worse than being wrong?  

I am stubborn, competitive, and like most coaches I have an ego.  

The last thing I want to be told is that I am wrong.  

Thankfully I hear it all the time from my fiancé, business partner, mentors, athletes, and even data from athlete monitoring.

BRAIN: HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE

BRAIN: HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE

Health and Performance are often talked about from the neck down (Cardiovascular and Muscular system).  

Yet the brain is the master controller of the heart, lungs, and our muscles.  It plays a huge role in the aging process as well as regulating the vast amount of functions of the body. It is our “central governor” of fatigue and you only need to google the buzzword “CNS Training”  to realize the importance of the brain in coordination and strength. 


THE POWER OF TRADITION

THE POWER OF TRADITION

1 mile to go and I feel like I am breathing in a plastic bag.  Head pounding from my own heartbeat.  The pain has come and gone leaving no awareness of where or what my legs are doing.  My mind is staggering in thought.
