CYCLIST – DOCTOR ELISE CHABBEY IN THE CORONAVIRUS LANE

A news that makes you think and that sees the Swiss professional cyclist Elise Chabbey as the protagonist. With the coronavirus pandemic still not reaching its peak and given that the cycling races have all been cancelled at the moment, Chabbey has decided to leave his team, Bigla-Katusha, to wear the white coat. The 27-year-old Swiss woman, who recently graduated in medicine, abandoned her preparation for the classical springtime to work at the University Hospital of Geneva. “Doing nothing is not in my nature. What’s happening is unprecedented, and given the gravity of the situation, I felt I had to do something…”, commented the redness. “When this crisis is over, […]

THE CORONAVIRUS ATTACKS ATHLETES? THE OPEN WINDOW PENALIZES THEM

THE CORONAVIRUS ATTACKS ATHLETES? THE OPEN WINDOW PENALIZES THEM

THE CORONAVIRUS ATTACKS ATHLETES? THE OPEN WINDOW PENALIZES THEM Athletes and Coronoavirus. A theme that may seem far from the reality of healthy people, like athletes. To surprise everyone was the news that a tall, strong, marathon runner, amateur footballer from Lombardy, was infected by Covid-19. The man had breathing difficulties and was admitted to intensive care. The question is: Wasn’t a virus that only affected the old people and immunosuppressed? The fact has amazed the non-experts to work, who have felt decidedly disorientated by the fact. The answer lies in too much physical activity. This is how the phenomenon called Open Window occurs. It is scientifically proven that the […]

THE EXPERIENCE: I TRY… LET’S DO IT, MY TEST

THE EXPERIENCE: I TRY… LET’S DO IT, MY TEST

I’m starting from zero. I have no important technical basis and I let myself be guided by the desire to improve my physical fitness. My approach to SportPlusHealth is precisely for this reason. I heard from some friends that you can do a physical evaluation test and then set up a personalized work plan based on the quality of the training. For me it is an interesting speech, because it allows me to optimize my time which is divided between work and family. Let’s say it’s good fight, but I think it’s also fair to have a space at my disposal. Loving each other is a way to make others […]

EXPERIENCE: MISTAKES TO AVOID BEFORE AND DURING A TEST

EXPERIENCE: MISTAKES TO AVOID BEFORE AND DURING A TEST

My first test can’t even call it that. In fact, it was more an approach to the world of technology and science. For what reason? First of all, I’d never used a meter before. So, the first step was to pair the power meter to the SPH app in my phone (Ant+ or Bluetooth are the two communication modes). MISTAKES: Secondly, I have to say that my test did not go well for at least 2 reasons: one practical and the other psychological. GIVING 100%: From a practical point of view I have to admit that not having a great experience, I have not given 100% of my potential. I […]

FROM A DIY JOB TO A SCIENTIFIC ONE

The cold is pungent and going out on a bike is out of the question. You hear that many are already riding, the most aggressive have moved to the heat to emulate the professionals of the pedal.

But you understand that the sport of cycling has changed a lot. We’re talking about watts and high-intensity work. New instruments are used, such as the power meter, and it is necessary to interpret the data so extrapolated. It is not only necessary to measure, but […]

But let’s go with order. The Pirard smart guy is not exactly an unknown in the world of 2 wheels, he has […]
