Brooks Signs Another Beast In Division II Star David Ribich

Brooks has added another Beast to its roster. 

Today, the Seattle-based track club announced the signing of NCAA Division II superstar David Ribich. During his time at Western Oregon, he won three national titles and knocked 18 seconds off his 1500m collegiate best to arrive at a 3:37.35 PR, which he set at this year's Bryan Clay Invitational. Last year, he made his first appearance at a USATF National Championship meet, where he qualified for the final

Ribich will make his professional debut this weekend at the Portland Track Festival in the high performance 800m on Sunday. 

"This whole year has been an incredible year of running under Western Oregon," Ribich said. "In December, I had a chat with Coach Mackey and knew this was a hard group to pass on. After my eligibility ended this May, I knew Brooks was the option; however, I wanted to still explore with other groups and companies before finalizing a decision. With the help of Total Sports, coaching staff, my family, and teammates, I knew Brooks was where I could see myself succeeding. Advice I have for collegians looking for the next step is ask the hard questions, think what’s best for you and your training on and off the track, and have fun. It’s an exciting time, and I’m excited to represent Brooks in my professional career."

"I watched David last year at USAs and was interested immediately," said Danny Mackey, Brooks Beasts head coach. "When we had our visit and I spoke to his coach Mike Johnson, it was a simple choice in my mind. David has a positive approach and confidence in himself, and I hope he'll enjoy a long career with the Beasts."

Ribich joins a crew that includes another former Division II stud, 2018 800m world indoor silver medalist Drew Windle, who competed for Ashland University from 2011-2015.

Understanding Resting And Maximum Heart Rate

Throughout the past years, business has combined the health and technology industries to create a society where fitness tracking has become a regular pastime. People have become more invested in their health and want fun devices to assist in that. These smartwatches and apps have made it easier than ever to know what your exact heart rate is, how many hours of sleep you get, or how far you run. However, with all the knowledge presented to you, it’s equally important to actually understand what those numbers mean to best achieve all of your fitness goals. A big part of this is knowing the different active and resting heart rate zones. 

Pre-Run And Post-Run Stretches

Stretching before and after your run can add a lot of benefits to your exercise routine. It allows you to warm up your muscles and safely progress into your run and also provides your body time to cool off and continue to activate your muscles. It’s important to set aside a couple of minutes before and after exercising so you can make sure you’re taking proper care of your body. 

The History Of Track And Field

Track and field has been around since the start of the Olympics in Ancient Greece in 776 B.C. It was created alongside religious events and celebrations for the Greek gods where men (no women were allowed) could show off their athletic abilities. From there it spread to the Romans who continued the games until the Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned them in 394 A.D. because of their ties to pagan beliefs.
