Safe outdoor activities during the covid-19 pandemic for both parents and kids

Outdoor activities that can be carried out near the home and that allow maintaining a distance of about 2 meters between us and other people have a lower risk of spreading the new coronavirus than indoor activities.

Apart from the premature closure of schools, the restrictions imposed by the authorities to control the diseases with the new coronavirus have also led to the postponement of festivals, concerts, or summer camps. Leisure plans have also been canceled or rescheduled. Despite the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still many options for fun activities that we can put into practice.

On Norskeanmeldelser both younger and older people looked for various activities they can do during the covid-19 pandemic. We all know that safety is paramount, but outdoor activities should not be forgotten either.

Defensive Basketball Techniques

Let’s begin by looking at the man-to-man defensive techniques. One of the first determinations is the dominant hand of your opponent; either right-handed or left-handed. This is the shooting hand, and it determines how you guard your man and obstructing the shooting path. The next determination is which foot is the pivot foot. This can change with possessions and determines the drive side tendency, frequently to the non-pivot foot side. Another tell is the hand position on the ball. Shooting hand behind the ball indicates preparing for a shot. Hands to the side of the ball indicate preparing to pass. Hand on the upper part of the ball indicates preparing to dribble and which hand indicates going left or right.

Another indicator is dribble patterns. Players who dribble between the legs or behind the back do so in repeated patterns prior to shooting or driving to the basket. Knowing that … Read the rest

How to Improve Serve

  1. Strengthen your core muscles (and not just your six pack muscles, but all of the muscles that make up the core.)
  2. Strengthen your shoulder muscles and this includes the rotator cuff muscles as well.
  3. Strengthen your posterior chair, Ie: your glutes hamstrings and lower back.

Lets start with number one.

Your core muscles are involved in just about everything you do, so by strengthening these muscles you’ll be improving your whole game.

Most people only focus on the six-pack muscles however this is a mistake as the core is made up of rectus abdominis, external oblique, transversus abdominis, and the internal oblique.

In this article how to improve your serve in three easy steps I’m going to talk about the transverses abdominis because most people do not have sufficient strength in this area.

The transverses abdominis is responsible for helping to support the spine and fortunately is very easy to … Read the rest

Basic Badminton Rules

The 15 game rally format is still the preferred format played in badminton. When not in tournament, it is still okay to follow this format and not the official one. Listed are the basic badminton rules for a 15 point game.

A team should win two out of three matches to win the game. Basic badminton rules say that men should work more for the game because they have to complete the whole of 15 points while the women just need the 11 points to win the match. In men’s match: When the score ties to 14-all, the side that scored 14 first shall have the choice either continue playing to 15 or to set the badminton game to 17 points.

In women’s match: When the score ties to 10-all, the side that scored ten first shall have the choice either continue playing to 11 or to set the badminton … Read the rest

Swimming Techniques Improve Triathlon

In order to improve their swimming times, athletes competing in a Triathlon should focus on their vessel shaping. Usually a triathlete will focus on increasing their propulsion through the water, giving their body alignment little or no thought.

Studies show that proper technique can increase swim time up to 50% faster. Bill Boomer, swim coach for University of Rochester in New York, believes that vessel shaping, a term he coined, has more impact on a swimmer’s time than hand movement.

To reduce drag, swimmers must be consciously aware of what their body is doing when they’re in the water. Reduce and then eliminate any actions that aren’t required to propel you forward. Baselining your swim technique is impossible to do yourself. You must either have a friend watch you swim or tape you while you swim so that you can see what you’re doing when you swim as well.

How to Treat Blisters

Draining any blister is an activity that should be done very carefully and cleanly. The best time to do this is right after a bath or shower, while your skin is still clean, soft and moist. Prepare for the lancing by sterilizing a pin or needle under a flame or in rubbing alcohol and then get some clean tissue paper ready. Sit down in a well lit area and situate yourself so that you can comfortably access the blister with both hands. Using the pin or needle, slowly and carefully penetrate the skin over the blister, use your best judgement to determine when the tip has made it into the bubble and then remove it, apply gentile pressure around the blister and inspect it for drainage. If there is none, try again. Repeat this process in solwly and carefully until you penetrate the blister and a clear liquid begins to … Read the rest

Surfing Etiquette


The surfer closest to the peak of the wave has the right of way. Also the surfer furthest out or first to his feet has the right to be on the wave. In all of these cases other surfers will have to let the wave pass. Learn these ‘rules’ and act accordingly.


Dropping in is the act of stealing someone’s wave described at point 1. By doing it you will create a dangerous situation for you and the other surfers. Collision might occur, bones and boards can break. It is a bad idea and everyone will be annoyed.


Do not paddle straight to the line up where the waves are breaking and people are surfing. It is wiser and safer to paddle through a channel where there are less chances of a run in. If you see a surfer coming towards … Read the rest

Basketball And Points

Basically you have to score more points than your opponents while trying to stop your opponents from scoring in the other basket. You score two points for a successful throw or three points if the throw is from behind the three throw arc. The measurement from the basket to the arc is 6.25 metres in international games but in NBA games this increases to 7.24 metres. At any point during the game a team can make up to seven substitutions but only when play is stopped.

The match is played in four quarters each lasting 10 minutes internationally and 12 minutes for NBA. At half time 15 minutes are aloud for a break and 2 minutes for the other breaks. Basketball has quite a large fan base because of its action and sometimes heated arguments on court adds to the excitement.

The person with the ball on court can not … Read the rest

Nutrition for Mountain Biking

Athletes who participate in endurance riding know about getting nutrition for mountain biking by storing extra energy in the muscle tissue for endurance riding.

The right nutrition for mountain biking is essential for endurance riding and is commonly referred to as “carb loading.”

Glucose is the fuel the body extracts from the breaking down of carbohydrates.

The glucose, called glycogen, is stored in the liver and muscle tissue.

The more glucose (bloodstream) and glycogen (muscle tissue) the body can access when in endurance situations the longer the muscles will continue performing at an optimal level and avoid fatigue.

The newest scientific findings suggest that athletes should eat a diet of 70 percent carbohydrates three days prior to an event, and physical workouts should get shorter prior to an event.

The increased carbohydrates should come from reducing protein and fat and not by simply increasing caloric content otherwise weight gain can … Read the rest
