Castro Expects To Have Normal Offseason Workouts










Barnes, Astros excited to potentially face Mo Email HOUSTON -- Brandon Barnes, prior to Friday, was the only Astros player who could say he had a base hit against Yankees legend Mariano Rivera, who is in Houston this weekend for his final series of his career. Barnes singled against Rivera earlier this year. The chance to perhaps get one last crack at Rivera this weekend was something that excited Barnes and some of his teammates. "It's awesome any time you get to face him," Barnes said. "It's going to be exciting to see him come out of http://www.maxworkoutsexposed.com/how-to-stay-fit-on-a-budget/ the bullpen, I'll tell you that." Astros outfielder L.J.

He never would have gone without the persuasion of his girlfriend, who regularly takes the class. Now, ex-football player Eric Akre says that it is the best class that the Wellness Center offers. It trains your body to help lose fat and gain muscle, which is what most guys want to do, he said. At the conclusion of the workout, he was lying in a puddle of sweat like the rest of us. <br>Source: http://www.themiamihurricane.com/2013/09/25/workouts-are-gender-neutral/

Jon Rothstein reports from Villanova workouts



A new Danish study has found that people who exercised for just 30 minutes a day lost a third more weight than those who worked out for an hour a day. The rationale? Scientists believe that the shorter workout stints left subjects with more energy and motivation to live healthier lifestyles, while those who hit the gym for an hour were more likely to feel burned out. RELATED: BOY, 2, UNDERGOES WEIGHT-LOSS SURGERY "The subjects in the test group that exercised the least talk about increased energy levels and a higher motivation for exercising and pursuing a healthy everyday life," said study author Dr. Astrid Jesperson of the University of Copenhagen. "They take the stairs, take the dog for an extra walk or cycle to work." In contrast, the subjects "who exercised for one hour a day, after training, felt exhausted, demotivated and less open to making a healthy change," she added. <br>Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/30-minute-workouts-better-hour-weight-loss-study-article-1.1462723

I've never dug deeper than during a lung-tearing climb up the Col de la Croix Fry. I ended up ninth overall, Joe sixth. We were delighted by this fleeting glory.

I'm addicted to Zumba. I admit this embarrassing fact to help build the case for workout trends that may be written off as fitness fads. I'm well aware that I look ridiculous trying to duplicate my Zumba instructor's fancy footwork and complicated cumbia steps. Still, I show up at every class because it's fun, and more importantly, it doesn't bore me. I can't say the same for putting in time on the treadmill, which is why I was interested in trying Fitwall . <br>Source: http://news.cnet.com/8301-9373_3-57604611-55/fitwall-creates-custom-workouts-using-tech/





Fitwall creates custom workouts using tech



It is not your typical gym, there is one that is totally digital. "There are apps, the Nike Fuel, fit bit bracelets, but that's telling you what you did. You still need to do the work, this is actually telling you what to do," said Jeff Pressman, Koko FitClub of Monroe. Members of Koko Fitclub of Monroe come in and plug in a flash drive, loaded with personal information for a customized workout. "With our technology, it measures the pace for you so you're doing it more effectively and more efficiently," said Pressman. <br>Source: http://www.wtnh.com/news/health/new-gym-trend-of-technology-driven-workouts
