Default Intersting discussion

http://physicalstrategies.blogspot.c...iron-game.html

Some of you Kettelbell and MA folks may know Tom. He offers soem intersting off the cuff predictions for the next 50 years in fitness. Keep in mind, this is just some guy talking, but he hits on a few ideas worth thinking about.

I like these:

The new "water" will be wine. While it is popular now, the intake of reasonable amounts of highly pigmented alcoholic beverages will increase and those drinks will be measured for their nutrient content.

Long Slow Distance will make a comeback. Not pavement pounding, but rowing, kayaking, walking with a weight vest, biking, swimming, and roller blading. Research will indicate that a certain amount of LSD, (1 or 2 times per week), match nomadic patterns of our ancestors and create positive blood chemistry changes not seen in short term interval type training

The valsava effect will be more closely studied since we have an older population and therefore older exercise participant base. Relaxed breathing, correct breathing, and not having an aneurism will be a standard protocol for trainers, much like knowing CPR.

I think this is possible. For the majority of Americans, they are not active....severly overweight and have lots of exercise restrictions. Now with all the research and findings into IF, Low carb, Zone, Cal restriction...people will be eating less, keep active and will lose weight without resorting to "jogging". This again is not geared towards the "athletic" America...but the other 99% sitting on their ass all day and getting fatter and sicker.

Lifestyle changes will be the focus of the main stream...and walking, hiking, biking with family and friends is a great way to do it.....who the hell goes jogging or does sprint intervals with the family? (unless you want a divorce)

True.....

Although,I used to train in the offseason with XC skiing. I would skate (self taught) and my wife would do classic. My skiing was a lot like intervals, I'd thrash for a kilometer or 3 and then fall over and gag, my wife would pass me at a steady clip. It worked pretty well. Hill repeats on inline skates were a different matter.

I think the gentleman may have a point or two, such as

Quote:
Obstacle Courses will be the new "Bootcamp" training. You will compete against yourself and not have some idiot yelling at you to do pushups as they eat a banana.
I have long thought that if I could recreate the Darby Queen or Green Hell that there are enough twisted (in a good way) folks who would pay to do them. Put a confidence course next door and your set to do executive "team building" as well.

I just can't figure out a way for the insurance to be affordable....Oh well.

Funny....big business in bootcamps....40 people running around a park doing jumping jacks at $20/head......rediculous....company just tried to franchise that idea out and spread it to like 30 parks here in Atlanta......last I heard they pretty much fell on their ass....but...people will pay for it....not recurring...but maybe a month or two....

My wife and a couple friends go here http://www.icechamber.com/ it is kind of a crossfit/bootcamp hybrid, they love it, and I figure they could do allot worse.

I REALLY like the obstacle course concept, especially for my 3.5 yo son, if anybody has info on constructing a very simple (minimal equip) obstacle course that hits all the major muscle groups I would love to see it.
