Chicken broth for the soul. Re-create yourself
Book in the online store
Nothing motivates as much as real success stories. And it doesn't matter what we are talking about: financial well-being, a healthy lifestyle or some other personal achievement. No trainings and workshops are able to give such a push forward as non-fictional biographies of other people who succeeded! After all, when you see how many people were able to change themselves and their world, faith in their own strength wakes up.
100 stories about the fight against excess weight in the book are told by ordinary people: here is everything that they went through trying to bring themselves in the form. Little motivational secrets from other people's lives have already helped millions of people around the world to take a step towards a healthy, fit and beautiful body.
You can move towards this gradually, in small steps, like Douglas Brown. He was denied life insurance due to 40 kilograms of excess weight. This made him act. He started simple: every day he climbed the stairs to the fourth floor to his workplace. Gradually, he managed to make serious changes in the nutrition system, to add training to this, so that now his health and well-being is much better than at the beginning of the journey.
You can stumble and indulge in your weaknesses, like Rebecca Hill. She once participated in a fitness exercise video that was held in the Hawaiian Islands. The other members, fit and slender, were all about a healthy lifestyle, and Rebecca was terribly shy about ordering cheeseburgers in her room in the evenings. Therefore, in the morning, she slowly put an empty tray at other people's doors.
And always after that - to return to the rut, to understand their own mistakes and forgive them, like Kimberly Hutmachep. She describes how over the past couple of years she has lost ten kilograms: Each time I set myself very modest tasks, and this helped me calmly, without jerking, move forward and regularly win small victories over time.
Forward to victories. above yourself!

Run Forever: Your Complete Guide to Healthy Lifetime Running
Electronic version on Amazon
Review from Renata Shagabudtinov, author of the telegram channel Simple Running : The book is called Running forever, and this is not a nice turn: Emby Burfoot really wants the reader to be able to enjoy running all his life without traumas.
The book is very easy to read due to its structure (short chapters on different topics) and style from(friendly and accessible).
No wonder - Burfoot not only won the Boston Marathon (that is, he knows what he writes about), but also began the path of popularizing sports from the school wall newspaper, and then worked for many years in the best running Runner's World magazine. And he is not his first book.
The book has a wonderful plan for those who are just starting to run - it proposes to alternate running with walking and gradually reach up to 30 minutes of continuous running. The translation of the plan and recommendations for its implementation is available on the “Running is simple” channel. There are also guidelines for other topics that usually bother newbies, from shoes to nutrition.
A very good book for beginners in running - and not only for beginners.
Sports nutrition for professionals and amateurs. Complete guide
Book in the publishing house's online store
Review from Renat Shagabudtinov, author of the telegram channel It's easy to run: For a long time, there were no transferable system and quality sports nutrition books written by experts. And in August 2018, two came out in different publishers at once! This and the next in this collection.
A very useful and informative book about nutrition, which may be of interest not only to athletes.
The book gives answers to most questions and explains everything in great detail. There are no extremes, fanaticism and there are recommendations for adherents of different diets, a balanced scientific approach. "
The edition consists of four parts:
1. Everyday healthy food for active people: breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks; carbohydrates, proteins, drinks.
2. Nutrition before, after and during exercise. Supplements, special sports nutrition.
3. Weight. Weight gain, overweight, diet.
4. Recipes (breakfasts, pasta / rice, vegetables and salads, poultry, meat, beans and tofu, fish and seafood, drinks and smoothies).
An important feature of the book is a large number of statistical tables with very useful information.
For example: the need for calcium by age / gender; protein and calorie content of pasta / rice / quinoa; calcium content in dairy products, vegetables, cereals; the nutritional value of popular breakfast cereals; 500 calorie breakfast options; comparison of milk and sports drinks in terms of minerals and protein; comparison of the most popular sports bars.
Nutrition in endurance sports. Everything a runner, swimmer, cyclist and triathlete needs to know
Book in the publisher's online store
Excerpt from the book. On the importance of iron
A fragment from the book. Training and competition in the heat
A fragment from the book. How to understand sugars
Review from Renata Shagabudtinov, author of the telegram channel It's easy to run : Another novelty in sports nutrition from an expert with vast experience. This book is slightly more specialized than the previous one - it is for everyone involved in endurance sports (i.e. running, swimming, cyclingm, triathlon, adventure races).
This is a systemic guide. It contains both basics and specialized questions.
Common issues include fluid intake, essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, weight loss and muscle gain, ergogenic supplements - their safety and effects.
The second half of the book is dedicated to specific sports and special questions. Swimming, running, triathlon and cycling are all too different to have one ready-made meal plan that suits all of them, so Monique Ryan considers the specifics of each sport.
The book also contains tips for special cases - for young and old athletes, vegetarians and diabetics, pregnant girls.
Recommendations are considered on the example of real athletes, including amateurs - what difficulties and questions they face how to solve problems and plan meals during training and competition.
How badly do you want it? Psychology of the superiority of mind over body
Book in the online store of the publishing house
Article based on the book: Psychology of competition
Review from Renata Shagabudtinov, author of telegram channel It's easy to run : An excellent book on sports psychology, which you will not tear yourself away from. It is built on the stories of elite athletes, their mistakes and lessons.
Reading is quite translated into the applied plane, if necessary.
For example, Alyssa McCaig, a professional runner, lost positions in the protocol several times at the end of important races. Although after that I could feel not 100% laid out and not even very tired. One day she made the decision to correlate her current physical distress in a race with the emotional distress after unsuccessful races, which helped her perform better at critical moments and improve her performance.
Interesting quote from the book:
Any athlete who forces himself to expand his old endurance limits in an effort to achieve more understands this. There is nothing like the feeling when a person deliberately brings himself to the point where he is ready to give up, and still does not give up. In moments of harsh reality, as Mark Allen calls them, when something inside of you asks: How badly do you want this? - internal barriers are removed, and you open that part of yourself that is exposed only at the most critical moments. And when your answer forces you to fight further, you come out of this test with new knowledge about yourself and self-respect that you cannot buy for any money.
In such moments of overcoming a cruel reality, athletes discover in themselves not only reasons keep fighting, but also ways to do it: motivation (why) and adaptive skills (how), to which they can come back again and again, when faced with the temptation to back down or give up. And both answers to why and how will be highly personal, unique to each athlete.
