GUEST BOOK

In early 2000, Prof. Dr. Rao suffered a convulsion 36 hours after a 40 km marathon run, due to an unusual cause, Magnesium Deficiency. 
When this happened, he was in the middle of a course, far away from Medical help. He had a series of convulsions until the deficit was corrected.
 
Following this incident, he studied the physiology of running in great depth. This article is a result of this study. During the very next marathon run, he out did himself, by doing 48 km with improved timing.

scientific Marathon running

Specially meant for the artist / soldier who currently runs 100 km a week.

 

Individuals who are born with genetic constitution designed for running may never experience any difficulty in running, but for the not so gifted ones, getting better is always a collosal task!

 

This page is meant for those who run long distances 15 km & above, & is also meant for those who wish to

increase their distance.

Or improve their timing

Or simply for those who wish to enjoy their running, by imbibing scientific concepts that will make their running fun, rather than a torture endurance.

 

 

WHAT TO EAT (Don’t be surprised!) during regular running for fitness & health.

All items are raw, natural & vegetarian.

 

During marthon running, you lose a lot of electrolytes. These will have to be loaded into the system before the run, or during the run (if possible). If not, then after the run.

 

Regular marathon running 15 Km or more (upto 60 Km) at a stretch, (as in Special Operations Personnel / Commandos) depletes the following nutrients:

 

Glucose – Replace at least 2 table spns of glucose in 1 litre of water per every 5 Km. Reduce if you want to lose fatty weight

 

Sodium – Replace 1 tsp salt in 1Liter H2O per every 5 Km

Lack causes Joint &calf pains during running

 

Potassium – Replace wit 1 inch diameter jaggery ball every 5 km

Lack causes muscular Weakness & lack of alertness during running

 

Calcium – replace with 1 high Calcium fruit / 1 cheese/paneer cube / nuts 1 tsp

Lack causes tremors & fatique during running

 

Magnesium – replace with Digene tablet 1 every 5 Km OR take maize / mango every day Lunch

Lack causes convulsions after 3 months of constant running without rest

This happened to my husband during a 45 km run.

 

Neutralize lactic Acids – Take 1/2 Raw potato every 5 Km

Lack causes Sprains and soreness after running

 

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A MARATHON RUN

This happens to everybody, only one may think it is not happening, unless he has a high degree of self awareness.

 

One has to identify, and take remedial measure for sustaining the scientific method of running.

 

FIRST WIND

Symptoms – Sore joints from previous running

Cause – Lactic Acid accumulation

When – In beginning of the run upto first km

Remedy – Just run slow & wait for soreness & Lactic acids to be washed out by fresh air

 

SECOND WIND

Symptoms – Stomach aches

Cause – Diaphragmatic fatique

When –Anytime during the first 5 km, may not appear at all in seasoned runners

Remedy – Run with shallow superficial breathing, so as to rest the diaphragm for 5-10 mins

 

THIRD WIND

Symptoms – Pain in any joint (Neck, shoulder, back, ankle, ps from previous running

Cause – Lactic Acid accumulation

When – After 5 Km anytime depending on previous runs in the week

Remedy – Breathe slowly & deeply for about 10 mins for lactic acids to be washed out by respiratory mechanisms.

 

FOURTH WIND

Symptoms – Reduced alertness, Altered conscious state, a feeling of high, with forgetfulness of route, how many km covered, how much more left, etc

Cause – Relative Hypoxia (insufficient O2 delivery) as compared to requirement of long running.

When – Towards the end of the run, say after 15 km – 25 km

Remedy – Breathe in deep & hold the breath for optimum absorption, Do this for a few breaths intermittently till u feel more alert.

 

FIFTH WIND

Symptoms – Reduced alertness, Altered conscious state, a feeling of high, with forgetfulness of route, how many km covered, how much more left, etc

Cause – Relative physiological cardiac Insufficiency, the heart is unable to supply blood flow as much as the constantly running muscles need.

When – Towards the end of the run, After 20km, or in the not so seasoned, earlier.

Remedy – Slow down the pace of running for 10 mins till heart recovers.

Important Note: 

 

'ACCS' is a technical term to denote the close combat art founded by Major Rao.

 Major Rao has been described by the Indian ministry of defense as the pioneer and first Indian to specialise in Close Quarter battle training. He & the org UCCA has trained thousands of Indian forces under official invitation by the top brass in CQB and ACCS. However it may be noted that the 'ACCS' Or the ACCS Website has no direct connection to the Indian Forces or Police. ACCS denotes UCCA Art of Close Combat offered only to Indian Forces. 

 

Please note that CQB or ACCS is not a Martial Art but a Military art. (The misinterpretation tends to occur as Unarmed Combat features in the Org name UCCA) We offer no placements for Karate blackbelts or civilian experts. Ex Forces PC Officers are welcome to join us for training the forces, without compensation, as is the UCCA ideology. No Civilian shall be taught the Close quarter military skills of ACCS.

 

Besides the Directors & Faculty of ACCS, no civilian is authorized OR qualified to teach ACCS. UCCA has a few Special Forces (retd) Army Officers who teach the restricted content of ACCS during UCCA courses (for the Indian forces) only

 

The information provided here is only to give an idea of functionality of the UCCA Arts. No Classified information is given here. 

 

DISCLAIMER: We caution the readers from attempting any technique outlined here, as it may rarely prove to be dangerouly fatal. Hence if you shall do, it will be at your own risk. We shall bear no responsibility for your actions.

 

We are non commercial, non competitive & non traditional.

We are totally committed to serving the Indian Forces.

Our entire work in modernization of Close Quarter Combat over 20 years has been without compensation, as a SERVICE TO THE NATION
