The Dolphins repeated as Super Bowl champions the following season, as they defeated the Minnesota Vikings 24—7. He currently holds the NFL record for most career wins as a head coach, with Shula was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Shula was born in Grand River, Ohio , a small town along the Lake Erie shore in the northeastern part of the state.
Mary's, a private Catholic school in Painesville; his mother was a devout Catholic, and his father converted to that denomination when they married. Harvey in Painesville and played on its football team starting in Within weeks of joining Harvey's football team, Shula was a starting left halfback in the school's single-wing offense. As Shula prepared to graduate from high school in , many men whose football careers were delayed by service in World War II were returning and competing for athletic scholarships.
Shula played in all 12 of Cleveland's games in , making his first appearance as a starter in October, and recorded four interceptions. Shula had five interceptions again in , but the Colts finished 5—6—1, well out of contention for the divisional championship. In his seven NFL seasons, he played in 73 games, intercepted 21 passes and recovered four fumbles. Shula got his first coaching job shortly after ending his playing career, signing as an assistant at the University of Virginia under Dick Voris in February , before being an assistant at Iowa State University.
Shula and Bartish had begun dating after he graduated from John Carroll; she was working as a teacher in Hawaii when he proposed. After one season at Virginia, Shula moved to an assistant coaching job at the University of Kentucky in under head coach Blanton Collier.
Weeb Ewbank, under whom Shula had played in Cleveland and Baltimore, was fired as the Colts' head coach in following a string of losing seasons and disagreements over team strategy and organization with owner Carroll Rosenbloom. Shula lost his first regular-season game, a September 15 matchup against the Giants. Shula guided the team to a 12—2 record in his second year as coach. The Colts tied the Green Bay Packers with a 10—3—1 record at the end of the season, forcing a playoff to determine which of them would play in the championship game.
Before the season began, Unitas injured his elbow and was replaced by backup Earl Morrall. The Jets were led by quarterback Joe Namath , who guaranteed a victory before the game despite being the underdog. New York won the game 16—7. Shula spent one more season as the head coach of the Colts, and missed the playoffs. After the season, Joe Robbie , owner of the Miami Dolphins , signed Shula to a contract to become Miami's second head coach.
As a result of Shula's signing, the team was charged with tampering by the NFL, which forced the Dolphins to give their first-round pick to the Colts. In , the Dolphins were unbeaten in the regular season, 14—0—0. They swept the playoffs and finished 17—0—0. Shula changed his coaching strategy as his personnel changed. His Super Bowl teams in , , , and were keyed by a run-first offensive strategy and a dominating defense. Marino won the starting job halfway through the regular season , and by , the Dolphins were back in the Super Bowl , due largely to Marino's record 5, yards through the air and 48 touchdown passes.
Despite consistent success in the regular season, Shula was unable to win in the postseason, failing in 12 trips to the playoffs—including two more Super Bowl appearances—before retiring after the season. His retirement following that regular season ended one of the greatest coaching legacies in NFL history. He set numerous records in his 33 seasons as a head coach.
He is first in most games coached , most consecutive seasons coached 33 , and Super Bowl Appearances—six, appearing once with the Baltimore Colts and five times with the Miami Dolphins. Shula had a 2—4 record in his Super Bowl appearances. The following season, the Dolphins had a chance to win a third title in three years, but they fell to the Oakland Raiders 28—26 , in an AFC divisional playoff game in one of the more popular playoff games ever played.
With 35 seconds remaining in the game, Ken Stabler was in the process of being sacked by Vern Den Herder. Just before he was tackled, he threw a completed desperation forward pass to his running back Clarence Davis in the game's final moments, and in doing so, ended Miami's two-year dominance.
The Dolphins team was decimated the following season by the creation of the now defunct World Football League and their inability to match contract offers to three of its star players—Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick, and Paul Warfield—to the rival league.
The Dolphin franchise has never been able to duplicate the success of — In retirement, Shula has lent his name to a chain of steakhouses , Shula's Steakhouse,  and a line of condiments. The hotel has guest rooms and specializes in college and professional sport travel.
The award was created to honor coach Vince Lombardi 's legacy, and is awarded annually to an individual who exemplifies the spirit of the coach. As part of a government public awareness campaign, he was the first American to sign up for Medicare Part D prescription drug plan benefits, enrolling just after midnight on November 15, In , he received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in recognition of his humanitarian efforts. At John Carroll University, he endowed the Don Shula Chair in Philosophy, which supports the Philosophy Department by presenting programs of interest to philosophers and the general public.
Steady-state works by increasing the oxygen delivery to your heart and lungs. Intervals, however, work on your muscles, helping them use oxygen more efficiently so your heart doesn't have to pump as much to make them perform.
Jump on a stationary bike or onto a treadmill, and start your own interval training regimen with this guide from Ballantyne:. Start with a regular warmup. When you've finished that, pedal or run at a rate that's 20 percent harder than your normal cardio intensity. After 30 to 60 seconds, bring the intensity down to a rate that's half the intensity of a normal cardio workout. You want two extremes: Alternate periods of 30 to 60 seconds of hard work with 30 to 60 seconds of easy pedaling or easy running for six to 10 intervals to complete your session.
As this gets easier, increase the intensity of each interval, work longer during the hard portion, shorten your rest periods or add more intervals. If you haven't sprinted since a coach was blasting a whistle in your ear, you're missing out on a natural but extreme form of interval training that can pay dividends for more than just your legs.
They have tremendous arms and shoulders, too," said Nick Tumminello, director of Performance University. A quick caveat, though: If you're not used to bursts like these, Tumminello says, it's easy to pull a hamstring, halting your training -- and your results. He suggests following these tips to start safely. Sprint on a hill. The impact on your joints is lower, Tumminello says, which can help you avoid injury. Live in a flat area with no hills?
Instead of the drag race approach, begin your sprints by speeding up from a jog. At a local track, jog the curve, then sprint 10 to 20 yards of the straightaway. Continue interval sprinting in this way. To maximize benefit and lower injury risk, keep your sprints on the shorter side -- no more than 50 yards per sprint.
This will help you maintain a high intensity throughout, says Tumminello, and prevent your form from breaking down, which can lead to injury. To increase the overall results of your sprint workout, increase the number of sprints instead of going for long distances.
When you're starting out, perform a sprint workout just once per week -- you'll be surprised at how sore the workout makes you, even in the abdominals. Once you're used to the stimulus, Tumminello suggests bumping it up to only two sessions per week, mixed with other gym workouts.
Allow at least two days of recovery between sprint workouts. You don't have to run, bike or perform any traditional cardio exercise to get high-intensity, fat-burning training. By pairing strength exercises that work opposing muscles, you can build muscle while keeping your heart rate high, maximizing fat loss.
During the lunges, the arms and back rest, while the legs rest during the pull-ups. Jack uses such exercise pairings to do escalating density training, an interval protocol with a built-in challenge. To try this challenge: Choose two exercises that use opposite movements or work completely different muscles -- pair a pushing exercise with a pulling exercise or a lower body move with an upper body move.
