Does pressure improve performance?
Whether it’s a ticking clock or a competitive task, there’s a reason why performance improves under pressure – and it mainly comes down to adrenaline. When you’re in a pressure situation, a whole heap of adrenaline is released into your system, which has a number of performance-boosting effects.

In high-pressure situations, I recommend that you focus on your breathing while staying mindful of your surroundings. Breathing deeply slows the heart rate, calms the nervous system and a calm body is followed by a calm mind.

Why are gymnasts so jacked?

It’s the transition of moving through all these exercises without faltering that recruits so much muscle tissue.
Is calisthenics better than lifting weights?
Calisthenics uses your bodyweight and involves compound exercises. It requires a lot of movement, making it better for losing weight and defining your muscles. When done regularly, weightlifting is best for building strength and muscle size. Both techniques are excellent forms of strength training.
