Sports for Children

Currently in the world, the prevalence of obesity in children is increasing rapidly. Although obesity risk factors are multifactorial, the majority of these factors are linked to lifestyle and can be intervened. Included are the amount of inactivity time, and the frequency, intensity, number and type of physical activity performed.

In 2012, the Canadian Pediatric Society issued a recommendation for guidance on physical activity for children. This guide mentions that children today tend to be inactive because of the widespread use of television, computers, and video games in the community. These activities resulted in the children sitting more and silent. Children who watch television more than 2 hours a day have a twofold risk of being overweight or obese than those who watch television 1 hour a day. Children who have televisions in their rooms are even at higher risk.

A recommended exercise guide for children recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society is as follows:

For good growth, infants younger than 1 year should be given active time several times a day, especially through simple, interactive games performed on the floor. Toddlers or children aged less than 5 years are advised to do at least 180 minutes of physical activity with mild to high intensity per day. Physical activity can be a number of activities in the environment outside the home or play or recreation activities.

Children over 5 years and adolescents (up to age 17 years) are recommended to perform moderate to high physical activity of at least 60 minutes per day. Sports such as running, swimming, playing soccer, tennis, gymnastics, martial arts, and roller skating are allowed by children once they are 5 years old.

After children turn 10, exercise aimed at improving muscle strength may begin. However, this form of weight training should be supervised and ensured to be done with high repetition (15-20 reps) as well as using light weights and correct techniques.

Not all sports are suitable for children. Choose the right sport for children according to their age and body size. Here’s a recommended sport for children.

Yoga and Pilates differences

Yoga and pilates can be said similar, when viewed from the type of movement. What distinguishes only the end goal. Yoga focuses on flexibility exercises, meditation, and stress management, while the Pilates movement focuses more on forging the body’s stamina.

Yoga began 5,000 years ago in India, growing for centuries and influenced by various cultures until now created various types of yoga, ranging from Ashtanga, Kripalu, Bikram, to Vinyasa.

Pilates is a contemporary version of yoga. Pilates was originally developed around the 20th century by an athlete, Joseph Pilates, in Germany. He created a series of physical exercises as a form of rehabilitation and reinforcement, focusing on postural core muscle control.

Both bring understanding that body and mind are two things that are related to each other. However, yoga adds one distinguishing element: the soul. Exploring the soul and spirituality takes a sizable portion of yoga practice as a whole, especially through meditation.

Meanwhile, pilates creates the principle of the relationship between body and mind, and how both can help you in everyday life.
Which one is more suitable for me?

If your priority is to restore the body after injury or strengthen the weak joints, pilates have more advantages than yoga.

Rachel Compton, director of pilates at Elixr Health Club Sydney, said that pilates could increase the body’s core strength and stability to restore the body’s vitality after joint injury. Pilates has been used for years by physiotherapists to help manage and restore injuries by strengthening the joint support muscles, as well as to prevent future likelihood of injury.

If your goal is to ‘run’ from the stressful pile and daily routine to restore focus, choose yoga. Yoga helps you achieve and maintain a balance between body, mind, and spirit. The practice of yoga combines all the movements and postures you need to gain general health and well-being, incorporating relaxation techniques, breathing arrangements, and meditation to achieve peace and spiritual peace.

If you are a runner or a dancer, these two sports can bring you different benefits that are just as great for your body.

Yoga is an ideal sport if stretching and flexibility are your main goals. Stretching of yoga movements can help manage the thirsty muscles after continuous use for running.

Yoga classes range from mild and soothing to sweat profusely. Bikram, or hot yoga, is performed in a room with an air temperature setting of up to 40 degrees centigrade. With the diversity of yoga classes, there is always a type of yoga that fits the needs of each person.

The practice of pilates challenges the core of your body as well as strengthens your back and spine, arms, hips, inner thighs, and stomach. Pilates can improve unbalanced posture and train body movements to be more efficient, thus reducing the risk of injury.

Both of these sports can help you lose weight if done regularly and regularly, although neither of them requires you to engage in physical Aerobics activities furiously, such as boxing, running, or cycling. One 60-minute yoga session, depending on the type of yoga you do, can burn 200-630 calories. Pilates for 60 minutes can burn 270-460 calories per session, depending on the level of difficulty.

Indonesia is more enthralling in the badminton world

Badminton Indonesia looks more attractive in the eyes of the world. After being selected as one of the three hosts of the second badminton tournament, behind the Olympics, World Championships and Super Series Finals, Indonesia again gained the confidence of hosting two prestigious tournaments at junior level. The two prestigious U-19 championships are Asian Junior Championships (AJC) and World Junior Championships aka World Junior Championships (WJC).

If the newly opened Indonesian Open tournament tournament will not start next year, U-19 level tournaments that play mixed team numbers and individuals will be held this year. The holding of these two young tournaments took place in close proximity. AJC is scheduled for July 22-30 at Sports Venues Jaya Raya Bintaro, Jakarta. This time of the retreat a few weeks from the original plan because it is adjacent to the Eid al-Fitr. While the time and place of the WJC has been declared since last year. Yogyakarta Special Region has the honor of hosting the WJC, 9-22 October 2017. According to Bambang Roedyanto, Head of International Relations of PP PBSI as reported by badminton, Indonesia’s selection as the new AJC host was announced last week.

Although newly announced, it does not mind to host. “The matter of preparation time is quite short, we think there is no problem, there are still four months ahead, we have started to do the preparation that can be done.” Opportunity Getting the trust as the host for these two prestigious championships became an opportunity for Indonesia. Not only does it get legitimacy as a country with a strong badminton tradition with an unquestionable reputation. More than that this golden opportunity to provide technical advantages for the development of badminton in the country.

On the one hand as the host Indonesia will get a quota of more athletes. On the other hand opens opportunities for badminton, especially athletes and coaches, as well as clubs to look closely at the gait of the young men from abroad. The process of learning and exchanging insights can happen easily without having to spend more. Luxury and splendor are in sight. In order that athletes are getting motivated to take part in it. Although in the end the match will be determined by PBSI, which he said has started to call athletes to National training camp, at least still encourage young players to continue to show off. After AJC and WJC await next year’s world-class prestigious event, the 2018 Youth Olympic in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

These two championships are just like a selection of stairs to South America. Achievements in the AJC and WJC will be fruitful points that will pave the way to the world level. While other young victors who are not elected do not need to be discouraged because the opportunity is always open when able to show achievement. For the Indonesian contingent, AJC and WJC are a barometer to measure the world’s youth map. Almost certainly the world’s best junior athletes will take part in the two championships. Indonesia can measure the extent to which the strength is not only oriented to Youth Olympic, but more than that as a material evaluation of youth coaching in the country. It will look like what is the condition of our badminton regeneration and where Indonesia is positioned in the middle of the world competition map of young players. Reflecting on the WJC last year, Indonesia’s achievement has not been good. This shows that the regeneration process is still running so slow that it can not compete with other powerful countries. China is still a mirror in this regard. Although the achievements at the senior level is currently a bit shaky, the situation will be redeemed in the near future.

At the junior level or in the list of players Bamboo Curtain country as if never run out of talented young players. Try to look at the current world warning list, many young Chinese players can already compete with other senior players. It is only a matter of time before they will reclaim the throne and world rank. Some of the young players who have shaken the world are Chen Qingchen and 19-year-old Jia Yifan. Likewise in various international championships, let’s say the super series level down. The tournament grand prix gold level just ended in Basel, Switzerland last week became an example. Of the five titles contested four of them brought to East Asia. Among senior players like Lin Dan and Chen / Jia on the highest podium, there is a row of potential young players. They are female singles finalist Chen Xiaoxin (18) and Chen Yufei (19), and single son Shi Yuqi (21) who surrendered from his senior Super

The Giro examines the new counter-clockmaker Nairo

Mikel Landa decides to continue in race despite the injury that caused the fall of the Blockhaus

Once the ascent to the Blockhaus was completed, and once confirmed that it is the giro’s lighted beacon, Nairo Quintana boarded the Movistar bus to cover the more than 280 kilometers separating him from Foligno, where he slept on Sunday, where today, Tuesday, part The time trial that must produce a new image of the race. While he and all the teams traveled, all cycling specialists said the same: how great the great Tom Dumoulin, who only lost half a minute with the best climber in the world. He is the best time trialist in the world, as he showed in the Tour: in the time trial he will beat the pink jersey to the Colombian, and with a lot of difference.

“No, no,” replied Nairo the next morning. “I want to keep it, but … I hope I do not waste so much time. But Tom is very fast and a specialist … “The plan is to lose it for such a short time, less than a minute and a half, that allows him to recover if possible, Saturday on the climb to Oropa.

And he could have added that neither he nor the mighty Dutchman are the same as a few months ago. They have new beings.

The new Nairo and the new Dumoulin will play the provisional pink maglia on Tuesday in 39.8 kilometers of slopes and vineyards near Assisi, where Francisco. The new Nairo, who leaves in pink, is the frequent rider who has managed to improve his performance against the clock with discipline and training; The new Dumoulin, in black and white his Sunweb jersey, is the heavy and tenacious cyclist who has improved his performance in the mountain with diet and less kilos. At Blockhaus he had the best performance of his life in a great mountain port. The last five kilometers made them practically at the same time as the Colombian. According to organizer data, to overcome the gravity law with its 70 kilos at such speed needed to move 441 watts, 73 more than Nairo, 15 kilos lighter. In the plain, where the absolute value commands, and aerodynamics, such power difference, linked to weight, gives advantage to the Maastricht butterfly and its 186 centimeters.

“But I am intrigued to know if his improvement in mountain thanks to the loss of weight will reduce speed in the plain,” says José Luis Arrieta, the director of Movistar. The last time they crossed in a time trial, the 10 kilometers of the Tyrrhenian, Dumoulin took 18s to the new Nairo, capable of an average of 50 per hour. Multiplied by four, in the time trial of the Giro would be 72s.

In the region of Sagrantino, the red wine of Umbria, the Giro will also examine Vincenzo Nibali, the Italian hope. The time trial will confirm whether the minute he lost at the Blockhaus with Nairo was the result of a temporary crisis or a reflection of his real capacity.
Landa continues

Sky’s curse on the Giro that had made the assaults of Bradley Wiggins, Richie Porte and Mikel Landa a catastrophe for many years, ended Sunday before the Blockhaus with the hopes of its new leader, Geraint Thomas, and, again, Landa, who lost 27m.

After weighing all the alternatives on Monday rest, the Alava cyclist has decided to continue. He hopes that the lesion in the vastus lateralis muscle of his left thigh that produced the fall caused by the police bike before the Blockhaus sane over time and be able to shine last week, the most spectacular. According to his neighbors, the great climber Landa is so well in shape that he is sure to be a protagonist on the days of Stelvio, Mortirolo, Piancavallo and Monte Grappa. In the time trial will settle for not getting out of control. On Wednesday the stage will also be complicated, but not so Thursday and Friday. Saturday will be the arrival in high to the sanctuary of Oropa.

In his best Giro, that of 2015, Landa subjected Contador to the mountain and won two dolomitic stages, Madonna di Campiglio and Mortirolo. After proving himself with a blazing acceleration on the way to Peschici, on Saturday he had warned his people that he was as well as he was then. That was why the fall that came when the Sunweb Dutchman Wilco Kelderman got caught up in the motorcycle of a traffic policeman stopped at the gutter. The policeman let the main group pass and waited for the arrival of a second group to accompany and break through. The funnel that caused coincided with one of the most nervous moments of the day, when the Movistar, in the head,
