Do you train extensively and eat healthy, but are you still not getting the results you want? I have a solution for you, – Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (S.A.I.D.). In otherwords, you may be doing too much (yes, you can exercise too much!) or too little physical activity, or eating (not only too much or too little food), but the wrong kinds of food at the least effective time of day. All of this activity (or lack thereof) will only cause you to “spin your wheels” and both extreme exercising and eating (either too much or too little) are both highly counterproductive to helping you achieve your health fitness and performance goals.

Sadly, in many developing countries, trained professionals still adhere to this common practice of training harder, but not smarter,  and thus in the process injure many young athletes psychologically and physiologically. Please read on to learn more why this previously revered manner of physical training is not the best way forward for your child’s athletic future. Is Your Child Safe? In Sri Lanka many of athlete students participating in sports in school are approximately 9 – 18 years old.  After completing their...
