Managment consultant. Focus on yoga, swimming (beginner, TI) and general training.

Training background:

  • Childhood: playground soccer, ice hockey, cross country skiing, swimming
  • 1973-1986 Basketball. Played in the Swedish junior national team and in the Swedish level 1 series (Brahe, IFK Linköping). Coached kids team, camp leader.
  • 1986-2000. Tried various martial arts, fencing, weightlifting, played in lower divisions of basketball. Constant problems with knees and back.
  • 2000-2007. Sporadic training due to becoming the father of twins, weightlifting, running, was only consistent with two years of Jodo. BMI peaked at 27 in 2002
  • 2007- . Mix of "everyday active" (bike to work, take the stairs instead of elevator,...), yoga, weightlifting (squats, deadlift, military press), functional training (e.g. MAQ, burpees) and swimming. Feels great.

comment Chewing refined grains - good or bad?
How is this related to physcical fitness? Also, it is a bit unclear what you are asking.

comment High intensity performance training
Instead of completely changing the question and making the comments incomprehensible, it is better to ask a new question.

comment Can anyone recommend science-based skeptical literature or media about exercise?
A scientific method for individual fitness is more in the area of "participant-observer" than "hypothesis testing". So claims that something works or not might be true for different contexts or individuals. Thus only reading without trying and/or relating to own experience and then evaluating what works for you is of little value.

comment Does writing with the non-dominant hand help the general coordination?
Interesting. As a young basketball player at camps, you were often adviced to, for example, brush your teeth with the non-dominant hand to improve the coordination for dribbling.

comment Time window for fitness tracking - four weeks or longer?
@DaveLiepmann, agree. My intention is to capture the time frame for "base load" of activity. For example, I track the details of my swimming separately (Garmin swimw atch + Garmin site). In this dashboard, you only see swimming as a dot in the "Min phys" (added minutes and date) and "Workouts" part (date and intensity)

It is a bit difficult to follow the logic in your answer, perhaps you can add more structure to it.

comment What exercises can help relieve outter arch strain?
Honesty is much better in this context, both in the short and long time fram. If the coaches cuts someone else from the team and it turns out that the injury is more serious -> not great for the relationships.

comment Weight training programs
It seems to be only a partial answer to the question, perhaps you can add some more detail around the key areas, times per week, time to increase the weight

comment What exercises can help relieve outter arch strain?
What is the main reason that "rest" is out of scope? If the injury is bad enough for not being able to go 100% and - most likely - the basketball season is over there shouldn't be that much pressure.

comment Time window for fitness tracking - four weeks or longer?
Given this answer, see fitness.stackexchange.com/a/16244/3778, it seems like the longest residual effect is thirty days -> having a longer time period is of low value.
