Let the countdown begin!
As the snow starts to fall across some of North America’s
most blessed ranges, it becomes increasingly difficult to focus on anything
other than skiing and riding for we at the Boston Institute of Snow. They had
enough snow for some VERY early turns at Sunshine Banff, and got full ground
cover at the top of Jackson Hole’s tram!
So, as we count the days until the
lifts turn again (I cross the days on my calendar off with little snowflakes!)
it is time for our annual season intro article.
Here are some of my favorite exercises for you,
whether you’re trying to build muscle or lose weight (or both) HAS to
be these. However, these are some of the most difficult exercises to do
properly unless you actually know what you’re doing which I believe few
do. Good luck!
Drinking Birds Reps: 8 per leg
1. Start standing with good posture, arms relaxed.
2. Extend your left leg out behind you,
keeping both legs straight but not locked.
Tom Brady is 37 years old today. Recently one of the topics on ESPN read, “Is Tom Brady on the decline?” I think the answer is pretty simple. Obviously he is on the decline, but don’t fret Brady fans that doesn’t mean T-Money is done. Handsome Tom is still a top 3 quarterback in the NFL in my mind. But lets look at his season by season stats. The last 2 seasons for Vitamin B-12 were the first time in his career in which he threw for less yards than the previous season back to back seasons. Every time in his career when T-Bone threw for less yards than a previous season, he threw for more yards the next season.
Last week opponents against spousal abuse received what most consider to be a huge slap in the face from the NFl. Well, at least that is how the media has been describing it. Spousal abuse has no place anywhere, and the NFL is not an exception to this rule. But maybe they are?
The media backlash came after Ray Rice, a running back for the Baltimore Ravens, received a two game suspension for beating his wife unconscious in an elevator. Now news of this incident has been around for months, but it came back into the limelight with the NFL’s “punishment” for Rice .
My Re-Education Lessons
As a high level volleyball athlete at
Endicott College, I experienced pain in my right knee the majority of my
seasons. It didn’t always slow me down, but during my junior year the pain
became so much that I could barely walk after practice and had to be in the gym
or athletic training room to warm up an hour before the team even arrived just
so I would be able to practice. As the starting libero, I was reluctant to sit
out practices for fear of losing out on playing time; something I feel like
most athletes go through during their career.
