Wild Oregano Oil

Wild Oregano Oil

I got my mother to use this stuff to help her clean up her ears. Worked really well. She rubbed a pure undiluted drop of it in one ear at a time. She did NOT just put a pure drop of it into the ear. That probably would have burned her and done some damage. CLICK HERE for a related video entitled: 14 Amazing Benefits of Wild Oregano Oil.

Instead they drop their elbow. This video show a way to train yourself to keep the elbow high and do the freestyle stoke correctly.

Overtraining Syndrome

Overtraining Syndrome

A few days ago I posted a question on a biking forum concerning ultra-distance cycling and overdosing on oxidative stress. I wasn’t sure about the connection between the two. Before I made the post I was thinking there was a connection between doing repeated high volume monotonous training sessions and events AND unhealthy levels of oxidative stress. Turns out I am now a believer that high volume workouts are not really the culprit. It’s actually overtraining that causes the unhealthy oxidative stress. And overtraining is a common problem for endurance athletes. If these athletes spend enough recovery time to heal after their long bike rides or runs, then they won’t “overtrain,” and thus will not cause unhealthy levels of oxidative stress.
