The Complete Guide to Indoor Rowing


Description

Indoor rowing machines (or ergometers) were once used only by outdoor rowers during their winter training. Over the last twenty years however the benefits of indoor rowing have attracted more and more users, and now every gym comes with one as standard. It's also a sport in its own right, with competitions ranging from school leagues to the European and World Championships. The Complete Guide to Indoor Rowing is the first comprehensive book to focus on this unique form of strength-endurance training. Clearly illustrated in full colour and packed with information, training plans, tips and techniques, it is suitable for serious athletes, outdoor rowers and regular gym users alike, and is a must for health professionals and coaches. Whether you are attracted by the weight-loss benefits of the rowing machine or using it to coach cross-training athletes, this book will help you get the best from each session while, crucially, remaining injury-free.

Minecraft Mods: All the new game features, including Super-Secret Bases, Pokemon Contest Spectaculars, and more! ·Full field coverage Are your kids addicted to the computer? Does it seem like no matter what you do, they won't take a break from the cube world that is known as Minecraft? Well worry not, we have a solution! From flight simulators and first-person shooters to MMPOG and innovative strategy games like 2008 s "Spore," computer games owe their development to computer simulation and imaging produced by and for the military during the Cold War. To understand their place in contemporary culture, Patrick Crogan argues, we must first understand the military logics that created and continue to inform them. "Gameplay Mode" situates computer games and gaming within the contemporary technocultural moment, connecting them to developments in the conceptualization of pure war since the Second World War and the evolution of simulation as both a technological achievement and a sociopolitical tool.Crogan begins by locating the origins of computer games in the development of cybernetic weapons systems in the 1940s, the U.S. Air Force s attempt to use computer simulation to protect the country against nuclear attack, and the U.S. military s development of the SIMNET simulated battlefield network in the late 1980s. He then examines specific game modes and genres in detail, from the creation of virtual space in fight simulation games and the co-option of narrative forms in gameplay to the continuities between online gaming sociality and real-world communities and the potential of experimental or artgame projects like "September 12th: A Toy World "and" Painstation, "to critique conventional computer games.Drawing on critical theoretical perspectives on computer-based technoculture, Crogan reveals the profound extent to which today s computer games and the wider culture they increasingly influence are informed by the technoscientific program they inherited from the military-industrial complex. But, Crogan concludes, games can play with, as well as play out, their underlying logic, offering the potential for computer gaming to anticipate a different, more peaceful The Complete Guide to Indoor Rowing download book and hopeful future.Minecraft Mods: All the new game features, including Super-Secret Bases, Pokemon Contest Spectaculars, and more! ·Full field coverage Are your kids addicted to the computer?
