The lion is also of cultural importance in the Far East , [39] [40] because of Ashoka's significance and spread of power and spread of buddhism which has the lion from indian culture [41] [42] in the land [43] [44] of the Indochinese tiger , [19] but according to authors such as Reginald Innes Pocock [21] and Nowell and Jackson , [4] the lion did not naturally occur there.

The lions in front of temples in china is a buddhist idea with the lion as a mystical protector [45] [43] According to Colin Tudge , given that both cats hunt large herbivores , it is likely that they had been in competition in Asia.

Despite their social nature, lions might have competed with tigers on an individual basis, as they would with each other. In a one-on-one encounter, it is believed that a Bengal tiger could beat an Indian lion, given its weight advantage.

Craig Packer is of the opinion that in order for Asiatic lions to survive in an area with Bengal tigers, the lions would have to be translocated there as intact groups rather than as individuals. According to him, there was evidence that tigers inhabited the Subcontinent, before lions.

The tigers likely entered Northern India from the eastern end of the Himalayas , through Burma , and started spreading throughout the area, before the lions likely entered Northern India from Balochistan or Persia , and spread to places like the Bengal and the Nerbudda River. Because of that, before the presence of man could limit the spread of lions, tigers reached parts of India that lions did not reach.

However, the presence of tigers throughout India did not stop the spread of lions there, in the first place, so Pocock said that it is unlikely that Bengal tigers played a role, significant or subordinate, in the near-extinction of the Indian lion, rather, that man was responsible for it, [21] as was the case with the decline in tigers' numbers.

Although lions and tigers can be kept together in harmony in captivity, [61] fatal conflicts have also been recorded. It was not always clear which species regularly beat the other, according to Doctor Packer Though the tiger had attacked first, it yielded to the stronger lion.

Despite having attacked first, the lion got it on its back, and used its jaws to hold the tiger's throat. The tiger died after that. The pair fought, and the young tiger ripped the lion's stomach. The lion died minutes later. The lion looked taller at the head than the tiger, and had a large mane, legs and paws.

The tiger was seen as "the personification of graceful strength and supple energy," whereas the lion was seen as the "embodiment of massive power and adamantine muscle". The battle was to happen after the tiger recovered from its wounds.

Though hampered by the heavy neck chain fastened to the iron bars of the arena, the tiger was more than a match for the lion and mangled it to death. Not only did Rajah manage to bite Huerte's nape, but it also broke Huerte's back, thus slaughtering it. No fatalities were mentioned, but Nelson said that order was 'restored' when tigers used escape doors to flee. The fight occurred when the tiger put his head through a connecting slide.

The lion caught the tiger by the throat, and, dragging it through the opening, killed it before the keepers arrived.

The lion had killed the tiger, according to Kailash Sankhala In the wilderness[ edit ] Herne mentioned that in the Indian jungle between the village of Elaw , city of Baroche , and Gulf of Cambay , north of the city of Surat and its Ghauts , about 6. Pursuing it, they caught a glimpse of it, but by that time, the tiger had attacked a local. Brilliant and informative.

After all, we all have a little Captain in us. But that s only because there are a lot of freaking words! For some that would be a bad, but in this case, you shouldn t be reading it all at once. The whole idea is to break it into pieces. Find the exercises that you need due to poor athletic performance or past injury and read up.

When you re in pain and want answers, trust me. You ll be grateful for just how deep Starrett gets. Extras: When I think of Kelly Starrett, I think primarily of mobility, but he has so much more to offer and he does just that. Specifically, he shows you proper techniques and movement patterns for just about every exercise you ll ever see in a WOD, including O-lifts.

That s a special kind of wonderful all on it s own. I even love a good quirky title, but this one just feels a touch, um, dirty. In fact, one of my CrossFitting pals pointed out that he left this book out in the open before he and his wife left the kids with the babysitter.

He s pretty sure the babysitter thought it was a sex book, because a few odd looks came their way after spotting it. If you have to start hiding your rehab book in a 50 Shades of Gray sort of way, maybe it s time for a different title. Or it s the most ingenious marketing ever.

Probably the latter. However, you most likely will never pay the sticker price since places like site and Barnes and Noble are always kicking a percentage off. My advice, shop around. Website: It s sort of a backward criticism, but I m bummed that Starrett s website is now mostly a paid subscription site. I get it, why download the book if you can get it all for free and in video version online. Money must be made, but in the way that pictures make words better, video hits it all out of the park.

Guess I just have to suck it up. The priority remains training, not resolving what is probably a laundry list of dysfunction in one training session. I have yet to meet an athlete with perfect motor-control, mobility, and biomechanical efficiency. Hell, most of the really successful athletes I know are dumping huge amounts of torque, bleeding horrendous amounts of force, and missing key corners in their range-of-motion.

Yet they are still the best in the world. A ten- or fifteen-minute intervention performed on the spot, within the context of the current training, is manageable and sustainable. The modern training session is a little miracle. Athletes are both greedy and smart—greedy in that they will do whatever it takes to get better in the shortest amount of time possible, and smart in that they will absolutely repeat specific practices and interventions that improve their performance or take away their pain.

The second benefit of using training exercises as a diagnostic tool is that it shifts the issues of lost or poor positioning from the realm of injury prevention to the realm of performance. This has twofold implication. Our goal is to make the best athletes in the world better.

These are the metrics that matter, because functioning well is never a force-production or a work-output compromise. If we chase performance first, we get injury prevention in the bargain.

If we obsess over the reasons behind poor positioning, we get better mechanical advantage, improved leverage, and more efficient force production. But when she notices greater wattage output and decreased times, she is a believer and will reproduce the phenomenon herself.

Using the training movements of the day as an instantaneous and ongoing diagnostic screening tool serves athletic development in other ways as well. For example, assessing an athlete for mechanical dysfunction with common screening processes is primarily a snapshot 37 of that athlete on that day.

Nothing is missed as long as an athlete is performing movements that express full range-of-motion and motor-control within those ranges. This leads to another useful change in the conceptual framework of what the gym can and should be.

The Gym Is Your Lab The modern strength-and-conditioning center should be considered a human-performance laboratory. The goal of both the coach and the athlete should be to exceed any strength, speed, or metabolic demand the athlete might need in life, sport, or shift on the SWAT team. It should also be the place where the coach and athlete hunt out every positional inefficiency, every poor mechanical tendency, and every default or compensatory movement pattern. Where else can the athlete safely expose his movement and tissue dysfunctions?

For example, most movement screens, quick-movement tests, or range-of-motion tests are performed statically and without any external load. We regularly see athletes who can correctly perform an overhead squat with a PVC pipe. This is the most challenging squat iteration because it has high hip and ankle demands: The athlete must keep his torso absolutely upright and his shoulders stable while the load is locked out overhead.

But what if we take that same person and have him or her run meters, then overhead squat anything heavier than a barbell for more than a few repetitions, all while competing against someone else?

We end up with a totally different athlete. And all we did was add a little bit of volume, intensity, stress, and metabolic demand to the overhead squat. Very quickly, and very safely, we make the invisible visible.

Join the movement that has reached millions of athletes and coaches.

The point is that the athlete who flashes the quick test will sometimes fall apart under real-life working conditions. We just have to adjust load, volume, and intensity to match the abilities and capacities of the athlete.

We should be seeking thresholds where our athletes begin to breakdown, and use that not only as an assessment and diagnostic tool, but also as a way to make the athlete better. Coaches have always done this in the gym, but typically only by challenging the athlete with load and sometimes with repetition. There are great athletes who can buffer their 39 movement dysfunctions—meaning that they can hide their mobility restrictions and poor technique—for short periods of time, but regularly lose effective positioning when they begin to fatigue even a little.

But if an athlete has the mobility and motor-control to maintain a stable spine, hips, and knees during a brutal working couplet of heavy front squats and running, then that athlete is more likely to be able to reproduce that efficient mechanical positioning when it matters the most say, in the last meters of the Olympic rowing final.

As I said, the gym is the lab. That coach would not only have to be a world-class expert in hundreds of sports and have perfect timing —catching the athlete when he or she just happens to break down—he would also need the skill set to correct those faults within the context of that particular sport.

All they need to do is repurpose the training movements so that they also serve as diagnostic tools. For example, we regularly work with world-class athletes who cannot perform the most basic and light deadlifting, squatting, or pushups without horribly dysfunctional movement. If an athlete understands the principles of, say, midline 40 stabilization and shoulder-torque development—both of which are covered in this book—he will be able to apply those principles to another set of movement demands.

Running is just maintaining a braced and neutral spine while falling forward and extending the hip.

And rowing looks an awful lot like performing a light deadlift while breathing really, really hard. For the strength coach, this is invaluable insight. The athlete who has few mobility restrictions and understands and has been training in principle-based movement is literally a blank canvas for the coach. But if we connect the dots for our athletes, drawing their attention to the principles inherent in these movements, they can apply those principles to the new set of variables that is their sport.

Think about it like this: If a person understands grammar and spelling, then he can write a sentence. Conversely, if the coach observes that the athlete loses effective shoulder stability in the bottom of a bench press, that pattern will probably present as a more vulnerable and less effective shoulder position during tackling.

At any age, and in nearly any state, the human animal is capable of an incredible amount of tissue repair and remodeling. For example, I was in an elevator in Las Vegas a few years ago with another coach with whom I was teaching a course on human performance at a local gym. On the way down, the elevator stopped and a woman got on. This woman was at least as wide as she was tall. She was holding one of those very long, fifty-plus-ounce beer cups with a big straw, carrying a bag of pastries, and smoking.

The best part was, she apparently felt great!Simple, they reside within the preventable-disease categories of overtension and open-circuit faulting.

But what if we take that same person and have him or her run meters, then overhead squat anything heavier than a barbell for more than a few repetitions, all while competing against someone else?

Improve your athletic performance, extend your athletic career, treat body stiffness and achy joints, and rehabilitate injuries—all without having to seek out a coach, doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or masseur. This paradigm keeps orthopedic surgeons very busy. We end up with a totally different athlete.
