A Champion Knows His/Her Body

A champion gets to know the ‘ins and outs’ of his/her body. The more in tune you are with it, the better you can get it to perform when you it most. That being said, a colleague and top equestrian Caylene Vincent sent me the following stats that I am sure you will find both intriguing and funny.

Did you know…

  • It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
  • One human hair can support 3 kg (6.6 lb).
  • The average man’s penis is three times the length of his thumb.
  • Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.
  • A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s.
  • There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
  • Women blink twice as often as men.
  • The average person’s skin weighs twice as much as the brain.
  • Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.
  • If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
  • Women reading this will be finished now.
  • Men are still busy checking their thumbs.

Champions know that the key to success is not achieving to be happy, but rather happily achieving – which means having FUN with stats like these. :-)
