Is working twice a day good or bad?

Plenty of studies have compared the health effects of working out once a day—say, for an hour—versus splitting up the workout into two 30-minute sessions or even shorter bouts of exercise. The truth is it doesn't matter, it all depends on intensity. If you could run for an hour at 7 miles an hour it wouldn't matter if you split that up, but if you were to run for 2 half hour periods one at 12 miles an hour and the other at 10 miles an hour that would be better than one hour. I think that spliting it up could really benefit you if you can have a greater intensity spreading it out. How ever If you are building endurance you would want to go for a longer time and not split it up.

SwiftWick sock review

I got the great opportunity to try out the swiftwick Pursuit 7"

I used them for skiing, running and I played a basketball game in them.

Quality 8/10 The quality seemed good, however they just didn't see to go above and beyond. I felt like they should have more padding on the bottom of the feet

Performance 9/10 They are very light and moisture wicking. I liked how they felt in my ski boots. For basketball I liked them, although I feel like they could get a 10 if they added more padding. For running they seemed great

Comfort 9/10 Although they didn't have a great amount of padding I still felt like they were very comfortable and enjoyable to wear around the house, and do all sorts of activities. My feet however did get cold while skiing, although that may have been the boots as they are new boots, they still didn't keep my feet as warm as I thought they would.

Value 8.5/10 They are great, however they are fairly pricey. The 2" socks are a good value at just $12.79 as they are sale right now and the 7" $17.59. If they aren't on sale I would say they only get a 7/10 but, the sale they have right now is great get yourself a pair before the sale ends!

NBA Teams of the Future

The NBA is becoming more and more about the future success. This is evident in the fact that many more teams are opting to tank, instead of trying, in a desperate attempt to sacrifice their present to build a foundation for their future. But when will that coveted future come? The Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers, for example, have gotten many high picks in the recent future, but that still hasn't panned out for them. So what teams actually have a good chance for success in the future? (In no particular order.)
1. Milwaukee Bucks- With rising stars such as Jabari Parker, Giannis However-you-say-his-last-name, and others leading the way, the Bucks are young and inexperienced, yet full of athleticism and talent, and are anxious to win. They are also confused about what games they're supposed to win, as was apparent last playoffs when they hit a buzzer-beater and recently when they knocked off the royal Golden State Warriors.
2. Phoenix Suns- The Suns were playing surprisingly well last season with Jeff Hornacek as the coach. Although they last Goran Dragic, I can see this Phoenix team bonding together and showing improvement. After the Nash-era the Suns struggled and started the rebuilding process. If their player like Brandon Knight, Eric Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and other key players play to their full potential, and continue to improve, I believe that they will be one of the teams to watch.
3. Utah Jazz- Despite they're coming off a few bad losses (a heartbreaker overtime game against OKC and a blowout loss to the Spurs), the Jazz have the fountain of youth on their side. It seems that Coach Quin Snyder and this organization are a fairly good match. Improvement is coming for the Jazz, slowly and surely, and flashes of brilliance are being shown from the role players. Now all the Jazz need are a consistent superstar to lead them to victory. Whether it come from Gordon Hayward of Rudy Gobert, or even someone new to the franchise, somebody needs to step up for their success to become a reality.
