Supertrainme

Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmaker. Spurlock’s film follows a 30-day period from February 1 to March 2, 2003, during which he ate only McDonald´s food. The film documents this lifestyle’s drastic effect on Spurlock’s physical and psycological well-being, and explores the fast food industry’s corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit (source: wipidedia). In this documentary film, the main character did not practice physical activity.

At the University of Castilla La Mancha (Spain), the idea of recreate the famous documentary Super Size Me , but adding the exercise factor, hence it arose: Super train me. A documentary film that wanted to analyze what would happen to the body if we are one month based on fast food diet and practicing physical activity and exercise.

This film is in Spanish, but you can select english subtitles in “CC” buton, near to volume bar.

What do you think about this experiment? How many times do you eat fast food in a week? How many minutes do you practice physical activity and exercise in a a week?

Think and write about it!…. It will may be an exam question.

Sport tournament: how can we organize?

Hello students.

This quarter we learned how to organize sports tournaments.

Usually, we can use two types of tournament: format league (is named round-robin too) or playoff format (knockout system).

In league format we can develope one or two rounds. In each round each team will play versus all the others.

In knockout system, the players / teams will be put in a frame by raffle or ranking, and the winner in each match will pass to the next round.

Another way could be mixing those systems: first a single Round-robin, and the best in each group, pass to the knockout.

In the exam you will have to develope a competition system base on the previous information.
