Warming Up Before Your Workout
"Sure all of you will have heard this before. You need to adequately warm-up before going the full throttle into any workout will that be weight training running any sort of sports and so on and more often than not this advice this falls on deaf is so why is it so important to ensure your warm up properly before you exercise. A warm up is a period of time prior to being doing physical activity which consists quite often of light cardiovascular exercises and quite often stretches as well and a woman activties serves two major purposes ready to enhance performance when we first gets help to also prevent injury now. What is really interesting to notice that Mike? With many topics in the health and fitness world there is contradictory advice out there. Because I'm sure many of you will have heard that you should did stretch before warming up as stretching spores exercise helps you to increase flexibility. It helps increase the ability of joint to move for. Its Fru range range of motion. But I'm here to say today that there might be some clues lifting evidence on stretching before we start doing size but before we talk about this contradictory trade balls dot that I should say. There are different forms of stretching. There's static stretches which of those where you're standing or sitting or you're lying still and you hold a single who position for a long period of time and these differ to dynamic stretches while you're performing genital repetitive. Movements perhaps like leg swing weh Edwin gradually increases the range of motion of movement but it always remains in the normal range of movement. Another example might be doing like chocolate cake Jorgen between each each one. But you're doing an open and close. The Gates Foil in an outer thighs are looked at up. If you're not sure I mean there but it has more movement involved rather than just being static taking sedentary as you'll doing the stretch so all of heard in the past is that regular stretching is thought to increase flexibility by making all muscles more supple and by retraining the nervous system to tolerate stretching further however according to the National Strength Conditioning Association a growing body of research has shown that pre-workout workout or pre event static stretching may actually have a negative effect on force production POW performance strengthen durance reaction time time and running speed in fact. Several studies said stretching before a workout or an advantage the race or a weightlifting competition. Whatever it may be has been shown to reduce performance went up to three percent? Dr Ian Schrager. A sports medicine clinician researcher and associate professor at the Department of Family. Medicine at Montreal's McGill University. Christie said that research now suggesting that stretching before exercise actually makes your muscles weaker and slower but it does help to increase. You'll range of the notion professor. Robert Herbert is a senior principal. Research Fellow Wave Neuroscience Research. Australia found that most of the evidence strongly suggest adjusted static. Stretching before exercise does not reduce the risk of injury and even a little bit quite negligible I mean study called a pragmatic randomized trial of stretching before and physical activity to prevent injury and soreness found what they called to be. A hint of an effect on reducing injuries like Ligament Tasr has muscle strains and sprains. So where does this leave. As if we've been told allies to do stretches and static stretching before exercising what shall we actually do. What free exercise warm up should we do? If there's a point in doing one at all so according to Dr Sharia your decision to stretch not distract should be based on what you want to achieve deep if the objective is to reduce injury stretching before exercise is not helpful. Your time better spent by warming of your muscles with the light. Aerobic Nick Movement. We talked about light cardiovascular movements getting some light joining in for example and gradually increased their intensity whilst of your objective is increase your range of motion so you can more easily do the splits. For example this is more beneficial doing stretches then doing a cardiovascular joke for example the purpose solve warming up has to prepare mentally and physically for your chosen activity so typical warm up should take at least ten minutes and involve the light Arabic movements we talked. What about with dynamic stretching that mimics the movements of the activity? You're about to four form unless as we said you're about to perform a split for example or something like the way you might want to consider static stretching you should then gradually increase the range of motion of these movements during the warm up to prepare the body for more intense versions of those movements that occurred during the sport itself so by doing this. This process will raise your heart rate. Increase the blood your muscles thereby warming your muscles up. And when he formed to muscles up less stiff they work more efficiently than has more blood flow. That's enabling your muscles two or more oxygen to reach your muscles and produce is energy and the woman also activates the nurse signals to muscles which can increase your reaction time so what is better recommended then. It's a combination Asian. Really if you're going to do a sport or weight training all a run. For example of dynamic stretching where into being cooperating some lights cardiovascular activity tippety as well as some more movement and Joe stretches raw than holding them in a static position so this episode might be very contrary to what you've heard before about stretching but I hope it has helped shed some light on pre-exercise war ups and what we should be doing What we should consider depending on what our objective

"Up as seventies disco because it's so easy to do. It is fun. Okay. So I wanna give a shout out to Linda, she's been a long time. Friend of the show. And she reminded me that studio fifty four the documentary opens here at the lagoon today. Finally, finally been waiting hearing about this document. Inferno. The director of the movie is the same guy who did Scotty and the secret history of Hollywood that has yet to open in the twin? I want to see that movie I documentary about Scotty Bowers. We read his book. He was he honor show. I didn't do interviews. He. Okay. Yeah. Ms somebody's speaking four. Yeah. But we did read that book. So it's the same director. So here's here, Richard Roeper. This is from the Chicago sun times, this is his review. So it starts out. Michael Jackson is nineteen or twenty. He's wearing an electric purple suit and an afro ads at least a foot to his height. He enters the cramped office of studio fifty four nightclub owner Steve several as a television. Journalists is interviewing Steve. Hi, Michael come on in. This is Jane Polly. Okay. So. In Jane asks Michael Jackson, while he's at the Kirby said, I'm ready to have good time. It's where you come. When you want escape it's escapism and forty years after studio fifty four blaze like a comet across the nightclub landscape. We get an energetic colorful, all reminder of what was arguably the most famous and infamous American establishment of its kind. Sure. Okay. It's gossipy, but well researched. Again, this is Richard Roeper towards it's fun. And it's campy is sometimes soberi and occasionally melancholy and Steve and Ian Schrager met at Syracuse university. Syracuse and they did a couple of things before they launch this studio fifty four in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven in this huge space that used to be home to CBS studios for game shows, what's my line in the sixty four thousand dollar question. Not know that I know I didn't know that either and as journalists Bob cello explains. In the movie gay cubs were the first to have the discriminate, but disco was black music, and it came out of black clubs the beautiful models would go to the gay clubs with the designers and the hairdressers in the makeup artists in the straight guys would wanna meet the models. So they would go to those clubs in it. All started blending at studio fifty four and. Nile Rodgers I guess is in the movie said it was the first time people were non-judgmental. Everyone was welcome. Even though was a tight rope. A about Nile Rogers the song freak out was based on him waiting in line of duty. Oh, fifty four and he couldn't get in. Hey. Changed it to freak out. But it was really something. I remember that in the lead up to this movie in it. And I guess there's a dazzling array of black and white stills in color film footage. Giving us a front row seat to the madness. From the drawings who lined up every night hoping to get past the velvet rope to the endless Prater celebrities from Bianca Jagger to LIZA Minelli to share determined Capote verifies at Warren Beatty. Andy Warhol, Diana Ross. And then they did all these lavish production numbers that looked like something out of a Hollywood studio musical near footage of that. And I guess a New York magazine interview like six months after studio fifty four Steve rebel bragged said only the mafia does better, but don't tell anybody. December fourteenth nineteen seventy eight when the IRS raided the club. And despite the fact, they had thirty seven attorneys fighting on their behalf. Oh my gosh. They both wound up serving almost two years in prison. Yeah. In Schrager is still alive seventy two and he sat down for extensive interviews with filmmakers, and as honest and straightforward as he looks back at the highs and lows so to speak and Steve rebel data at forty five from aids related complications. But he's very much a dominant presence and their ridge studio for fifty four only lasts thirty three months. That's crazy. And it really clad in triggers sitting down because I think he's a really talked about this time in his light o- on the record on camera. Yes. Basically lived a different life. I want to say, maybe he's a real estate developer. Yeah. I think he's gonna tell us. Yeah. And so so that is playing at the lagoon as Richard Roeper from the Chicago sun times gave it three zero to four stars. But I mean, if you love disco, and you love your love. And then Pete six had a really interesting story did an interview with this woman named JoAnne Horowitz, a gal from Long Island, and I guess she is in the movie and. She said it was nineteen seventy seven I was fresh out of college. I went on a date with a guy working at it chanted garden, which was a famous queens nightclub where people were discussing things like. Saturday Night Fever. She went dancing with her date. And then she met his boss, Ian Schrager who started talking about this club. He was opening in the city, and they got all stressed out. How can we bring media tension to this midtown club in this old CBS studio, and she was fresh out of college? And she was the secretary to the head of public relations. Universal picture perfect. I found I told the end I get the industry publication called celebrity bulletin rumored, nineteen seventy seven people it tells you where the star stars they're saying give me two hundred invitations and all send them out. And she said I used universal stationary to write the letters. And that was the maker break moment. She hand delivered the invitations Henry rink Winkler came to open the night, she invited share were. They were all seeing Ted. I said oh my God. Meanwhile, I knew nobody personally then share round up on the cover the New York Post the next stayed after the the next day Ian wanted to make a deal. The deal was a sliding scale fee that she negotiated with them for any celebrities. She got in the club and in the papers. So so you're still own a Michael Jackson. I would get paid to fifty each got the covers of the post through the daily news a hundred and fifty inside people magazine got to fifty same for time or Newsweek if I got items and Liz Smith's column, I also got paid I hustle my butt off and still own and Michael Jackson became friends of mine, but still longer photographed with his girlfriend wife, and then he was mad at me for almost the next two years. She was at the club every single night. So she was the first celebrity Wrangler. If you will she would dance with Michael Jackson, she wound up dating his brother. Jackie for awhile. Did David Bowie became a studio. Fifty four regular. As a result of her wrangling as Brooke Shields, Dan Ross verifies at rhino. Neil. Alice Cooper, all.

Fifty four and nineteen seventy seven in this huge space that used to be home to CBS studios for game shows, what's my line in the sixty four thousand dollar question. And not know that I know I didn't know that either. And as journalists Bob Cole a cello explains. In the movie gay clubs were the first to have the discriminate Zik, but disco was black music and it came out of black clubs the beautiful models would go to the gay clubs with the designers and the hairdressers in the makeup artists. And then the straight guys would wanna meet the models. So they would go to those clubs in it. All started blending at studio fifty four and Nile Rodgers I guess is in the movie said it was the first time people were non-judgmental. Everyone was welcome. Even though it's a tight rope started about now Rogers the song freak out was based on him waiting in line of duty. Oh, fifty four and he couldn't get in..

"But just just thirty three months after it opened its shut down in a story that was as wild and surprising as its opening. Well, much has been written about the club. Intrigue are the club's co-owner avoided the press as much as co owner Steve rebel court corded it for now. Ian tells the story in detail as part of a new documentary by Matt turn our called studio. Fifty four opens today at center, and we're so pleased that Ian and Matt or in studio. Hi, guys. So Matt how did you convince Ian to talk to you? Well, you know, I knew each other for a while. And I realized this week that all the we knew each other. I never asked him about studio fifty four I could sense. He did want to talk about it, actually. And we talked about architecture and design which is a mutual passion of ours. And I think it's forty years on he was doing a coffee table book, which came out to great success last year. I think and we got to talking about studio finally for the first time he said to me in his Socratic method. Do you think of the movie about studio fifty four good idea? And I said if you talk I think, it'd be a great idea because he'd never spoken before. And that started a conversation about whether we really should do this. And I said to him at one point or no sorry. He asked me another question. He said what about jail, and I said to him if there's no jail there's movie, then he very wisely said, okay? Let's do it. Why was the right timing? Obviously people had asked you before. All the gun. But there was just forty years. I passed the wound healed bit. And I just felt like setting the record straight from my family. I felt like telling the story as it really happened. There were a lot of people out there that were didn't really know anything when holding themselves out as knowing everything and it was just the right time. And there was something. Mac tech music me. Pick him and trust him to tell the story. We wanna get you involved in this for the next half hour. We want to hear from you our listeners did you ever go to studio fifty four or try to get in? And maybe we're turned away at the door. Did you go and have a great time? Give us a call at two one two four three three nine six nine to our numbers two and two four three three W N Y C. So our tagline on this show is the show is about culture, and the culture. So I want to hear from you, Matt after making this film, what was the culture of studio fifty four. And then how did it have an impact on the culture? Fifty four was one of the loss explosive moments of the sexual revolution. Sexual relations touched off of the birth control pill in the early sixties early. Seventies were a really traumatic time Vietnam, the Nixon administration the Watergate it cetera. And as Steve rebel says in archival footage in the film after all of that, everyone just wanted to go crazy and go dancing. So disco culture. New York was emerging at this time this fascinating fusion of African American dance culture and gay kind of underground dance scene and what Ian Schrager and Steve rebel. Did was take that bottle it in produce something that had never been seen before. Which was kind of like a scaled up version of that where this extraordinary libertine permissive culture found his home and at the same time, the culture of celebrity starts to emerge people magazine's up and running page six in the New York Post starts and celebrities start to get covered. Like sports heroes have been covered. Four in studio was the perfect venue for all of that in for you. What was the culture like for you as somebody who is right in the thick of it at the time. Well, excuse me. I. The sexual revolution. Mean Castilla sexual revolution going on? Maybe a little bit different than it was then. And I think really what happened during that period is everything wasn't on beyond a closed-door came out into the into the public. It was celebrated people lost hair. In addition. There was nothing you could do that. You couldn't get up the next morning and walk away from you couldn't get hurt you wouldn't get ill whatever that is still going on. And what I think was at studio gave it a kind of visibility was really a very prominent place for what was going on all over the world. And it was a catalyst people felt free and protected. You can do anything you wanted. You can be anybody. You wanted to be in and not have anybody come over. And he you for an autograph or walking at you. And so. So I think that kind of freedom of expression. Just a really wonderful. Great then and I wanna play a clip that's to your point method. You were making earlier this journalists. Bob Cole at shallow. And then the musician Nile Rodgers gay clubs some.
