Sprint-Resisted Training

Training within sports is a vital part of becoming a world class athlete. Without the proper training, workouts, diet and willingness to put the time and work in, becoming a world class athlete is not likely to happen in your future. We have grown up in our lives and have had visions and dreams of becoming our favorite player. There were times when we as children would try to emulate popular sports figures Michael Jordan, Carl Lewis, Barry Sanders, the late Walter Payton and Wayne Gretzky. These sports figures that I mentioned have been named as greats in their perspective sport and they did not get there by just talent alone.

As I was growing up playing football, I wanted to be just like Walter Payton. The moves that he would perform on the football field week in and week out were amazing to my eyes and wanted to be just like him. Walter Payton had the total package; he had the moves, the strength and the speed to make defenders miss or he was able to just run right through a defender or outrun anyone trying to chase him down. He was just pure poetry on the football field. I was a good sized young football player up until the age of 13 when I stopped growing. I had the strength, because of doing push-ups and lifting weights, while my moves were also great because I practiced them every week. The only problem that I had left was becoming a faster back like Walter Payton. I have tried many different ways to get faster and faster, but nothing seemed to work the way that I would have liked it to work. My 40 yard dash time was steady at a 4.75sec. In order for me to be effective and use my speed as I got older I would need to get my 40 yard dash time down to a 4.5sec or lower. I have done exercise after exercise, I even signed up for Track and…...

Physiological Training

...Physiological Training Research In baseball we can split the year into the off-season, early pre-season, late pre-season, and in-season. To start off we need to develop foundational strength by preparing the joints, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue for more demanding training later. Baseball places uneven stresses on the body, like pitchers throw forcefully with the same arm thousands of times a year. Swinging the bat in the same direction over and over develops muscles on one side of the body more than the other side. Over time, small imbalances can create over-use injuries and the best way to prevent this is with exercises that re-develop the natural balance between left and right. The muscles of the trunk and lower back connect the upper and lower body. They support every twisting, turning, jumping, and lateral movement. They are literally the link through which all movement passes. Here are the parameters for this phase of the baseball strength-training program: Time year: Early pre-season, Duration: 4-8 weeks, Days per Week: 2-3, Sets: 2-3, Reps: 15-20 Once you’ve built a solid well-balanced foundation, the next phase of the baseball strength-training program is develop maximal strength. It serves as a foundation for muscular power and speed. The goal is to spend some time in the pre-season increasing your strength to a peak and then to convert that strength into explosive power just as the competitive season approaches. Here are the parameters for this......

The Evolution of Sprint Wireless

... cameras, mp3 players and personal computers. Cell phones have served as a security tool for parents who want to keep an electronic eye on their children while still keeping their distance. They can be your GPS when you are lost in the middle of nowhere. They can be your best friend in an emergency or if you find yourself in any other tight spot. I once had a classmate who told me that he had a paper due in less than 45 minutes and he wrote and submitted it on his Blackberry. For these reasons and many more, the cell phone industry has exploded in the last quarter century and some of the major service providers have made profit hand over fist. This narrative is meant to give the reader an insight into Sprint; one of the top three service providers here in the U.S. The Sprint company began in the late 1800's as the Brown Telephone Company based out of Abilene, Kansas. Started by visionary Cleyson Brown, the Brown Telephone company was originally meant to challenge the local power, Bell Telephone Company. Bell, which owned all important patents related to the telephone, enjoyed a monopoly on local telephone service. But in small towns like Abilene, Bell service was expensive and often viewed by the public as big business. In addition, Bell's patents were about to expire, leaving the door open for entrepreneurs to create alternative services. (Robinsonlibrary.com, 2014) By 1899, Brown had announced the formation his own company carrying his namesake and in 1902 the Brown......

Other factors are laws that restrict usage, regulations set by governing bodies such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and terms/lengths of contracts.

Substitutes include other wireless service providers, landline service providers, letter mail, and meeting in person. Basically any other form of communicating without......

A Sprint on T the Wild Side

...English 201 A Sprint on the Wild Side “Trainspotting” is a movie that shows a glimpse of the lives of four young men in their late teens to early twenties, who are in various stages of heroin addiction. Two contrasting characters are Bixby, an older, extremely violent alcoholic who despises heroin, and Diane who at 15 mostly indulges in pot. Trainspotting takes place in the Scottish Edinburg of the early nineties. The movie is narrated by the main character Marc Renton, through whose perspective viewers witness life and death on heroin. “Trainspotting” (shot in 1996) is so popular that it is now known as a cult movie. Unique to this movie about the heroin drug culture is its fast pace, pointed criticism of society, and humorous absurdity. In spite of covering two tragic deaths, “Trainspotting” remains rooted in the subject of the friendships between its main characters, and the rapid deterioration of these friendships. The movie does depict drug addiction and its consequences in quite an ugly way; however, it uses equally ugly means to depict mainstream society. The excitement and adventure of Trainspotting far outshine the depiction of tragedy as a consequence of drug addiction. To the age group most at risk for drug addiction, Trainspotting glorifies drug use. As late as August of 2014 arts correspondent Hannah Furness quoted retired health official Sir Kenneth Calman: “Trainspotting was more powerful in the fight against......

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its Tesco.com website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

Research Paper on Sprint

...with Sprint network Since the beginning of September I bought a new blackberry phone only to add more headaches to my busy scheduled life I have. I was happy with my old blackberry phone I had then I wanted a new phone since my seven month son finished beating up my old phone with his two new baby teeth. My problem with my new phone began when my husband tried to call me and my calls were going straight to my voice mail last week. I tried to call out with no luck. My blackberry said “service failed." I tried to use the text system and it was taking a long time or even the text system was failing to go through. All this added more headaches and frustrated only because I relied on my cell phone and never bothered to buy a house phone as a backup in case my cell phone ever failed me. I made a service call to Sprint twice last week and so far three times this week. I finally got ahold of a supervisor technical support person that helped me with my phone. It took about forty minutes to fix the problem. We had to change my IBM number to trick the system that is attached to the Sprint network. We trouble shot the phone twice. We did this to confuse the chip on my phone. The gentleman from Sprint was a great help with lots of knowledge regarding the problem I was having with my cell phone. He also mentioned that the area that I live around have a few dead spots that is another reason for my lost calls and failed calls. After we hung up, I looked up the problem up on the Sprint......

...Soccer Training Program Salah Mohamed PHED 1122 Spring sem. 2003 Mr. Williams April 30, 2003 By now we all know the dangers of eating too much and exercising too little: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. But even in a society as obsessed with slimness as ours, most of us would rather have a root canal than hit the gym. Well, couch potatoes, take heart! Experts now say that effective exercise can be incorporated into daily life so easily; even the most exercise-phobic among us can shape up. This is a 4-week bodybuilding program, designed for myself, and any one interested to building their muscle. However, this plan is good for beginners just like me. This sketch requires 1-2 hours, 4 times a week. The idea is to lift as heavy as you can, while still being able to complete the required number of repetitions. Not only that, but the exercise I am about to develop is what I do with my soccer team. To be able to keep up an exercise plan, that has to work for you. For example, if you plan to get up 5 in the morning to work out, and you’re not a morning person, that plan will never work over the long term. Look your schedule and find times to work out that are convenient for you on a regular basis. If you have to switch your whole life around to accommodate your workout schedule, you’ll end up not working out. So look at your weekly timetable, and find a few hours that can be made convenient for you to exercise, then make sure you go.......

Sprint Performance Management

...Sprint Performance Management System Douglas Tennyson Excelsior College Abstract Every company needs to have a performance management system in place to build employees into what the company desires from them, to help them retain the best employees and to assist with active communication. Sprint seems to have a performance management system today that is much better than it was previously and this paper will explore the current performance management system and compare it to the old one and also make recommendations as to what Sprint can do to improve their current system. Sprint is a telecommunications company that specializes in mobile devices and mobile service. They currently hold fourth place in the mobile provider market being overtaken by T-mobile in 2015 according to a report on RCwireless.com with Verizon and AT&T maintaining a firm grip at the top of the market share. "The report found that "no major shifts in market share among the major four carriers" between now and 2020" (Kinney, S. (2015). One of Sprint's bigger problems was their employee turnover rate; they were losing employees faster than they were getting new ones. This would be a problem for any company, but especially for a company that is in the cutthroat business of cell phones and service. Trying to grow and take more of the market when you can't keep the trained employees created a problem for Sprint and they knew they needed to address this. "In July 2002, Towers Perrin released......

Case Study Two: Southwest Airlines & Sprint Telecommunications

...Case Study Two: Southwest Airlines & Sprint Telecommunications DeVry University: BUSN258 November 30, 2011   Southwest Airlines & Sprint Telecommunications There are many factors that contribute to the success of a company and customer service is one of the more important elements that determine this. A company’s customer service reputation is not built nor fixed overnight; yet it can be a company’s greatest attribute, or attribute greatly to its downfall. Southwest Airlines is known for its world class customer service; this is just the opposite of Sprint Telecommunications which is often noted for its lack of customer service. While exploring the customer service reputation of these two different companies we will discover the vital role and impact of customer service as pertains to the success of these companies. “Southwest Airlines Co. is a low-fare domestic airline that provides primarily short haul, high-frequency airline services. Southwest is one of the largest carriers in the U.S. based on number of domestic passengers. The firm operates 547 Boeing 737 planes, serving 72 cities in 37 states throughout the U.S. The firm operates over 3,100 flights daily (Plunkett 2011).” For those of us who are unfamiliar with Southwest Airlines customer service practices look no further than the company’s philosophy and mission statement. “The Southwest Airlines philosophy serves as the vision and mission for the organization.
