There is nothing wrong with stretching your groin musclesβ€”even if they’re tight. But you should stretch safely. Here’s how.

Tokyo 2020 commemorative gift (Olympic victory bouquet)

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will present a commemorative gift to medallists at Tokyo 2020 later this year.
The gifts used will be ‘victory bouquets’, and will feature bright colours to encapsulate the medallists’ glorious moment of victory with people around the world.
However, despite being a common sight throughout the history of the Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020 will be the first time since London 2012 that a host city will use victory bouquets – and they hold great significance too.
The flowers used for the bouquets for Tokyo 2020 are grown mainly in areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, and it’s hoped the Olympic and Paralympic Games – the biggest sporting event on the planet – will present a perfect opportunity to promote their charm to a global audience.

Rowing. The Total Body Workout – Crew Class Dublin

The picture says it all! You use 87% of the muscles in your body indoor rowing. Every muscle, every stroke! 

The Catch: Your torso and shoulders tilt forward, arms and hands extend towards the fan. Deltoids, triceps and upper back are taut. Legs contract, ready to drive!

The Drive: Your body hangs off the handle, feet push off the footplate. A strong leg drive propels the body backwards down the slide, activating calves, quads and hamstrings. Shoulders and arms accelerate the handle towards the chest. The core and glutes stabilise the upper body, hinging from the hips.

The Finish: Your full leg extension activates the quads and glutes, arms are taut toward the chest. The core stabilises the end of the stroke and the start of the recovery. 

With correct indoor rowing technique, EACH stroke gives you get a TOTAL body workout, training more of your body, in more ways, in less time. So learn how to row, and get fitter faster!
