USC Closed from 13 March to 6 April

Today, the national government announced an extension of measures against the spread of the coronavirus. Based on this, Leiden University has decided that the University Sports Center will close from March 13 to April 6.

This means that all USC locations and accommodations are closed and all activities organized by the University Sports Center are canceled, including at external locations.

We are well aware that this measure can lead to disappointment. We count on your understanding for this exceptional situation.

The measure applies from 13 March to 6 April 2020.

  • ​What to eat before and after HIIT?

    For the past 10 days the online support of workouts at home has been extensive. Small fitness equipment such as kettlebells, floormats, dumbbells and steps are getting out of stock by popular demand. But not to worry if this material is not available to you. There are several bodyweight-HIIT-cardio workouts that don’t require anything than just a couple of square meters of space. (see my post of last week, Total Bodyweight-HIIT Circuit)

  • The Update on Oats

    The recipe of the overnight oats in one of the posts last week had to be tested and reviewed, so last night I put about 40 grams of oatmeal into a jar and filled it up halfway with coconut milk. This is not the heavy coconut cream that comes in little packages and is often used in Thai/Asian sauces, but the light coconut milk in the 1 litre package (usually around 20 kcal/100 ml). Stirred it and then just set it away in the refrigerator overnight.
