Zanetti reveals his secret to longevity

first_imgInter Milan legend Javier Zanetti reveals the key to his extraordinary longevity was due to his leg exercises.Zanetti currently the club’s vice-president spent almost two decades in the team, playing until a month to his 41st birthday.“Strength has always been a fundamental aspect in my career,” he told Football Italia.“When I arrived in Italy in 1995, I started doing a lot of strength work, both with the team and on my own time. A player with strong muscles is more likely to prevent injuries and performs better.“I always played twice a week, even from Sunday to Tuesday, but despite that would never miss my Monday strength training. Although usually after 48 hours you do feel tired, it made me feel better for the next game.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“I would bench press and had specific tests to work out which weight to lift during different periods of the season.“I leg pressed 500kg and with one leg I managed to lift 310kg. I would naturally also alternate those with work on ‘explosions’ of pace. For example, Jose Mourinho really liked to work with the ball, with high-intensity training based on hitting the brakes and changing direction.“I believe that in modern football you need more than just a fitness coach, as there ought to be specialised figures who work on different areas, for example, strength. There has to be collaboration and a wider vision of the situation.“I did take time to rest too. After a game, I’d spend time in the pool, then a day later work on strength and posture.”last_img read more

Minnesota researchers findings on dark matter jibe with Italys DAMALIBRA claims

(PhysOrg.com) — Sparking controversy in the small circle of physicists working to resolve the issue of whether dark matter actually exists, Juan Collar, spokesman for the CoGeNT project in the Soudan mine in Minnesota, spoke recently at the American Physical Society meeting and disclosed that his team has found results similar to those experienced by the DAMA/LIBRA team in Italy over the past several years, which show an excess of low energy interactions in their germanium crystal detectors, that his group can’t explain any other way but to ascribe it to the existence of dark matter. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Explore further The DAMA/LIBRA team has insisted for 12 years that the data it has found with its detectors backs up the theory that not only does dark matter exist, but that it can be shown to exist by seasonal changes in the amount of recoil hitting in their germanium detectors. The idea is that because the Earth moves and supposed clouds of dark matter don’t, there should be times of higher activity when the Earth is moving into or through an area of dense dark matter, and lower activity when it’s not. This is the basis of the argument the DAMA/LIBRA team has had to explain the seasonal changes in the number of hits they see.The problem with all this though is that there are other teams that have not been able to reproduce the results shown first by the DAMA/LIBRA team, and now by those with the CoGeNT team (most notably the Swiss XENON100 team.) Making the whole argument even more sensational is that the CoGeNT team actually set out to prove to the world that the DAMA/LIBRA team was wrong.All of the teams are working to prove or disprove the notion that theoretical particles of dark matter, called WIMPS, exist and thus can be used, or not to back up or refute many other theories that serve to explain many of the unexplained phenomena that exist in the universe; such as what holds everything together. Some theories suggest that if dark matter does truly exist, it likely makes up eighty percent of everything there is; if it doesn’t however, a lot of physicists will be going back to the drawing board.One thing is certain however, and that is much more research will have to be done, both by those that are seeing results and those that aren’t, before anyone can even come close to claiming they understand the invisible forces that make the universe what it is.
