  • A new study by William Hill reveals winter hacks to improve performance in a variety of sports including rugby, football, tennis and more.
  • Discover how to adapt tactics in the winter months

Whether you’re a cyclist, runner, triathlete, or just trying to hit your 2021 fitness goals, training and nutrition must stay consistent throughout the seasons for optimal results. However, variables that are completely out of your hands – like the weather – can massively impact your performance and motivation.

Nights are long, days are short and the UK’s winter weather certainly isn’t inviting, so there is no denying that even the more committed among us find these conditions challenging. But, on a positive note, the shortest day this winter is now well and truly behind us and therefore this is a brilliant opportunity to look to the future, set new goals and adapt training to truly get ahead of the curve and achieve your personal best.

To help you reach your personal best and hit those fitness goals, William Hill has revealed winter hacks for a variety of sports including cycling, football, rugby, and tennis. As the saying goes, ‘winter miles turn to summer smiles’!

And for more tips and to find out how professionals adapt to different conditions, visit https://news.williamhill.com/weather-effect/

The top tips per sport are detailed below:

Football:

When it comes to training in colder conditions, the body’s centre competes with the muscles for blood flow, which – for multiple reasons – can hinder performance and even cause unwarranted muscle strain. Also, people often dehydrate in colder conditions, so to overcome this drink 8 ounces of water every 15 minutes and wear clothing which keeps your body at a comfortable temperature.

Cricket:

Cricket is prominently a summer sport, so when cold spells do appear, use this time to go to the gym and build strength, power, endurance, and technique.

Regardless of it being wet, snowing, freezing, or raining, all of these conditions affect visibility which can lead to accidents. With low visibility also comes thicker air density, this will impact how the ball moves through the air.

Cycling:

In crisp and bitter weather, Just one degree in muscle temperature leads to a 10% drop in performance, wear several layers and gloves when it’s cold to prevent heat loss.

Golf:

Freezing temperatures lead to greater air density, so the ball needs more velocity than it would if the conditions were warmer, keep this in mind when taking your shot.

Horse Racing:

In Winter temperatures go for a warm-up jog and drink a hot drink to keep heat levels up prior to horse riding and choose clothing wisely so wear plenty of breathable layers. Also, keep your horse warm by blanketing them, this will ensure their muscles remain loosened up and perform better.

Wet weather can affect the horse’s footing and lower visibility. Notice how your horse is responding underfoot and decide what is best for you and your horse on that day. Be sure to keep both you and your equestrian partner as visible as possible.

Rugby:

Training in wet weather isn’t always a hindrance in rugby, but it can cause the body to drop in temperature rapidly, so make sure you have dry clothes to change into during half time.

Tennis:

The wind can throw off the toss on serves, which makes it harder to control and reduces the chances of a successful serve. Shots require more power to cut through the wind, so keep this in mind when taking your shot.

Esports tournament BLAST Premier has extended its international broadcast reach with eight new media rights deals for the rest of the 2021 season.

TV channels SportsMax, Nordic Entertainment Group and BOLT+, among other new deals, will take the world’s leading Counter-Strike tournament series to a number of new regions around the world, including: Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Iceland, Canada, Kosovo, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India and the Caribbean.

The new rights partnerships will extend the esports media network’s portfolio of media rights to over 35 partners, meaning BLAST Premier will be shown in 18 different languages and across 157 territories.

The announcement highlights a period of growth for BLAST’s TV and online distribution footprint after a year of increased viewership for esports. Newszoo’s 2020 report estimated a year-on-year increase in the total esports audience by 11.7% to just short of 500 million people, while revenue from media rights and sponsorships ($822.4m) was expected to account for three-quarters of the total market.

Last season, BLAST Premier enjoyed increased viewership and more than 83 million hours of content watched across all seven of its Counter-Strike tournaments while posting the most watched CS:GO online match of all time during the Global Final.

Alexander Lewin, VP of Distribution and Programming for BLAST, said: “We are thrilled to see so many new partners join the BLAST network of leading TV and online channels. These deals will offer even more fans the opportunity to tune in to watch BLAST Premier from around the world, which is now accessible in over 150 territories and 18 languages. We expect to continue our path of expansion during an exciting period of viewership growth at BLAST Premier and in esports.”
