To watch you could click on the embed on this site. Or click through to Gymnastike.
The embed has no video ad. The Gymnastike page does.
I mention this as I’m a bit irked at Gymnastike for not being more transparent on which of their links lead to the membership only videos, and which are free to all.
Normally I’d tell people to go to Gymnastike rather than watch on this site. But right now, if you are not a paid Gold member, you should be leery of wasting your time on a Gymnastike link. Not knowing in advance whether or not you can watch it.
I’d recommend you to join Gymnastike Gold, but I’m also irked they are so reluctant to tell folks the price of membership up front. (My personal philosophy is not to buy any product that has deceptive or hidden pricing.)
All that said, this is a very cool tumbling sequence. Thanks for posting it Gymnastike.
Many older athletes pop something like Ibuprofin as a regular part of the workout ritual. Some refer to it as “Vitamin I“.
In a study published in the December issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, nine healthy trained men cycled using different combinations of ibuprofen, no ibuprofen and rest.
The study found that ibuprofen aggravates injury in the small intestine, based on measurements of cell leakage in the gut lining.
Whether the leakage leads to pathology isn’t known and will take a longer-term study to determine.
“This is the first study to reveal that ibuprofen aggravates exercise-induced small intestinal injury and induces gut barrier dysfunction in healthy individuals,” Kim van Wijck of Maastrict University Medical Centre and her co-authors wrote.
“We conclude that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs consumption by athletes is not harmless and should be discouraged.” …
I’m having some trouble with Reisport guards of late. The leather seems to be breaking more often and wearing out quicker. I’ve heard that the leather at the moment is going through a bad batch. In any case I’m on the hunt for a new brand
… While watching the 2012 Olympics in London on NBC I was wowed by the performance of the US and Chinese athletes in diving and gymnastics, along with the freeze frame shots of the dives, vaults, and floor exercises. It occurred to me that we could easily design a computerized robotic coach which would analyze, judge, and grade not only events, but also work as a coach in practice offering strategic advice to help the athletes better themselves, and I hate to say it, but the robotic system I am envisioning would be even better than the human eye, or a human coach. Let’s talk. …
The author Lance Winslow, like most ezine @rticle blabbers, has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about.
How could he? That’s Lance’s 27,111th ezine article.
Reviews are mostly negative, sadly. It’s only available from the U.S. iTunes store, so don’t bother if you are from anywhere else.
NBC uses Adobe® Flash® not HTML5.
And is (mostly) not available outside the USA:
Q: Can we watch video on NBCOlympics.com outside of the United States?
A: Due to Olympic broadcasting regulations, NBC is only allowed to show Olympic content on the internet for the United States & U.S. Territories. Users outside of those locations will still have access to an extensive set of non-event video content on NBCOlympics.com.
Q: What is required for access to view “Live Streaming” video content?
A: With a cable, satellite or telco TV subscription that includes MSNBC and CNBC, you can access live streams of EVERY Olympic event at no additional charge.
Q: When is this Live Streaming content going to be available?
A: Live Coverage of Olympic Trials events to begin in June.
Live Olympic coverage and full event replays will be available starting July 25th, 2012.
If you follow this site you know I link to Blythe Lawrence’s Examiner blog more than any other.
But it’s getting increasingly cluttered. That’s not Blythe, but rather the host — Examiner.
In frustration with the pop-up shown, I downloaded a free Google Chrome browser extension called Clearly. (There are others similar.)
With one click, Clearly makes blog posts and articles clean and easy to read. Clearly eliminates all distractions from your online reading experience, and even allows you to browse multi-page articles in one, seamless view.
Connect Clearly to Evernote to clip and sync articles with every computer, phone and tablet you use. …
Here’s how Examiner looks after being interpreted by Clearly.
If these utilities get popular, companies like Examiner will have to come up with less annoying, deceptive advertisements.
Why can’t I pay for a version of Gymnastics Examiner ad free?
