speed and strength

anonymous asked:

before i start I just wanna say ur blog is like... the greatest. I was hoping to get ur thoughts abt an hc of mine that if Lucio pursued a field in medicine that he'd be a cardiologist, and here's why: music has been shown to "directly trigger physiological changes that modulate blood pressure, heart rate & respiration" so I always liked the thought of Lucio studying the cardiovasc system rlly thoroughly & mixing some of his songs in such a way as to increase healing/speed, boost strength, etc.

…*puts chin on hands* anon I’m in love with you. Okay but seriously this is a fantastic headcanon and I need you to develop this more right now PLEASE

considering most people in the world don’t exactly want to die at age 30 doing GPP is tantamount to being a healthy person. GPP or General Physical Preparedness is the first stage of off season conditioning for athletes of any sport or anyone who takes their training seriously in which movements relating to various aspects of general fitness and health. strength, speed, endurance, flexibility and skill work make up GPP. focussing on your weak points as an athlete, GPP should be utilized whenever possible to help address problems such as mobility, neuromuscular activation and all round conditioning for a greater skill set. 

because GPP is as described GENERAL Physical Preparedness it entails that ALL points of an athlete’s skill set  should be addressed regardless of their actual skill in it. a more individualised variation of GPP which is designed around a particular athlete’s weak points is called SPP, Specialised Physical Preparedness in which the program is designed to help various weak points the athlete’s have that regular programming ignores. SPP is a program based around imitating movements relative to an athlete’s sport. this can include lifting complexes based around olympic lifting, endurance based activities such as prowler pushing or dragging a sled, jumping based movements such as box jumps, vertical jumping drills or broad jumps. 

back to the point of GPP, we all need to do conditioning, lifting weights is fine, steady state cardio is fine (to a point), HIIT is fine, but GPP is needed if you are serious about your training. never be just a single strength athlete, round out your skills as much as possible. 

At age 15 Jack Morrison was the youngest person on his high school wrestling team.

At age 16 he set new records in both track and swimming.

At age 18 he entered ROTC and left home to attend college.

At age 22 he graduated with honors and became an officer of the US Army.

At age 25 he volunteered for the experimental Super Soldier program and recieved biotic enhancement to his strength, speed, and reflexes.

At age 30 he served with distinction in the Omnic Crisis.

At age 32 he was tapped to become leader of Overwatch, a multinational peacekeeping task force.

At age 50 he survived an attempted coup of Overwatch instigated by the mysterious Talon Organization, led by his close compatriot Gabriel Reyes.  Having escaped the destruction of Overwatch’s HQ, he faked his death and went into hiding.

At age 51 he began acting as a rogue agent, identified only as ‘Soldier 76′ as he began attacking key points held by the Talon Organization and their affiliates in a one-man campaign to uncover the truth behind the fall of Overwatch.

At age 55 during a firefight in Greece, he was pushed off a cliff by a 19-year-old pro gamer who’d been given an advanced combat mech by the Korean government.

“Winky faaaaaaaaaace!” she called out as he fell to his death.

Gravitational Waves Discovered from Colliding Black Holes

About 1.3 billion years ago two black holes swirled closer and closer together until they crashed in a furious bang. Each black hole packed roughly 30 times the mass of our sun into a minute volume, and their head-on impact came as the two were approaching the speed of light. The staggering strength of the merger gave rise to a new black hole and created a gravitational field so strong that it distorted spacetime in waves that spread throughout space with a power about 50 times stronger than that of all the shining stars and galaxies in the observable universe. Such events are, incredibly, thought to be common in space, but this collision was the first of its kind ever detected and its waves the first ever seen. Scientists with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced today at a much-anticipated press conference in Washington, D.C. (one of at least five simultaneous events held in the U.S. and Europe) that the more than half-century search for gravitational waves has finally succeeded.

“This was truly a scientific moonshot, and we did it, we landed on the moon,” LIGO executive director David Reitze said during the announcement.

“There are people who’ve put their entire life into this search, and there are people who died before having a chance to see anything,” says LIGO team member Szabolcs Márka, a physicist at Columbia University. “It’s really a wonderful feeling that you have validated the investment of the tremendous amount of work. And it’s not just that you found something, but you gave something to everybody, to the rest of the human race.”

Albert Einstein first predicted gravitational waves in 1916 based on his general theory of relativity, but even he waffled about whether or not they truly exist. Scientists began seeking these ripples in spacetime in the 1960s but none succeeded in measuring their effects on Earth until now. LIGO’s discovery, accepted for publication in Physical Review Letters, not only provides the first direct evidence for gravitational waves but also opens the door to using them to study the powerful cosmic events that create them. “It’s a huge deal,” says Luis Lehner, a physicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario who is unaffiliated with the LIGO project. “It has pushed the fundamental theory of gravity forward in a very strong way and gives us an incredible tool to probe very deep questions of the universe.”

In these trying times of the whole hydra thing, I would like to remind all y’all that The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (Written by Ryan North and Illustrated by Erica Henderson) is a thing that exists. 

It’s about Squirrel Girl, a college freshmen with the proportional speed and strength of a squirrel, as well as claws, a tail, and the ability to communicate with squirrels. 

She fights crime.

Not only is The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl pretty unproblematic, it’s really funny. 

Her room mate Nancy writes Thor fanfiction and suggests obvious, non super power related solutions to problems. It is beautiful. 

On Chapter 840

So I just read chap 840…and as disturbing and horrifying as the conversation with his brothers was, the flashback was even more heartbreaking.

I mean, he gets punished for being normal?

I’m glad my close/genome theory proved to be right and he is, in fact, not like his siblings in terms of strength, speed etc.

But he’s bullied by his own siblings, by his father, by everyone basically because he can’t do what they expect him to do, because he’s a regular human with human limitations.

It’s already tragic that he has to suffer such abuse at such a young age, solely for being normal or average, if you want.

But what broke my heart was this, after his family pretended he was dead, they locked him up:

HE APOLOGISES FOR BEING A HUMAN!

HE APOLOGISES FOR BEING WEAK?!

He did NOTHING wrong his entire life, he got punished and locked up for being normal, human, kind and compassionate.

HE GOT LOCKED UP FOR HAVING HUMAN VALUES, VIRTUES AND LIMITATIONS.

At that point, I couldn’t stop my tears.
