I didn’t feel like reading something that would tell me, “It’s all what you’re born with.” This book is not at all that. Not only will the limbs be longer, but there tends to be less of the person in general. A torso will have much more to it than a limb. Practicing jumping didn’t get him much further because he had already practiced jumping so much!
The media takes the most extreme versions of the books and acts as if that’s what the entire book says, giving a huge misrepresentation. Meaning, overall, Holm has been able to get .12 meters higher than Thomas has. From the Great Rift Valley to Arctic forest, David Eipstein brings us into a journey examining the debate in relation to sporting success, including the flaws of the 10,000-hour rule which most people know through the Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers book.

Again, if you want to excel at running, great adaptations. This book is an exploration of many of the factors that influence the performance of top-flight athletes. As I mentioned, Epstein does a great job arguing all sides. About 28 percent of men now have the height and weight combination that could fit in with professional soccer players; 23 percent with elite sprinters; 15 percent with professional hockey players; and 9.5 percent with Rugby Union forwards. It's both nature and nurture, at least from David Epstein's point of view, and to be sure there are many other opinions expressed in this book. Kudos to him. There was an error retrieving your Wish Lists. If the idea that there are genetic differences between genders and among ethnicities that predisposes certain groups to superior athleticism makes you feel uncomfortable then this book is not for you. This engaging and illuminating work is a pleasure to read. It’s a brave new world out there, and it’s an exciting time to watch developments in training regimes based on an athletes specific gene makeup. Reviewed in the United States on September 20, 2018.
Recommended, especially for parents of athletic kids. Visceral fat is known to be unhealthy.
Furthermore, at rest, you potentially burn less calories period, because of your fast twitch “gift.”. (A stopwatch is still better than any genetic testing we have.) But, more than likely, he had been, through basketball, jumping since he was five years old. Although the general thesis - "It's both - and in complicated and unexpected ways!" “I can’t remember a book that has fascinated, educated—and provoked—me as much as, Eat Race Win: The Endurance Athlete's Cookbook, The Swim Mom's Cookbook: The Next Step In Advancing Your Swimmer's Performance, Pace: A Book About Running, Not Running and Taming My Inner ******* (Censored Version). I have seen every level of ability and am drawn to stories of human performance, endurance, and physical improvement. So are athletes who have to rotate in the air-divers, figure skaters, and gymnasts.
The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human, Range: The Key to Success, Performance and Education. A great addition to the nature vs nurture debate, this book focuses on specific differences in genetics to analyze how material these effects are on athletic performance. I found myself mulling over various moments I've witnessed or been a part of in sport/athletic training - like my struggling so hard to run a mile in eight minutes in middle school while most of my friends zoomed by, or that time an eighth grader walked into our high school weightroom and bench pressed 315 lbs, or the random super-athletes at LA fitness. Be the first to ask a question about The Sports Gene. I read this book 6 or 7 years ago, but wanted to reread it based on its nuanced discussion of gender and race in the context of sports. He draws no conclusions other than to point out that genetics seems to curiously find an opportunity. No, at least not in sports. Epstein has written a stunning analysis of the research done on what makes some athletes better than others. Some fascinating factoids - for example, those famous short NBA players? I have seen enormous talent and am particularly intrigued by those who excel at the highest levels. Super informative.
