Benefits Of Hiking: There's Science Behind The Feel-good Workout - Boulder Daily Camera

Jeff Gawrych, of Boulder, his sons Liam, 2, right, Danny, 5, and Justin, 7, hike Mount Sanitas together in March <a href=Max Workouts ebook 2013 in Boulder. Gawrych said then that he' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> Here are four research-backed reasons you should hit the trail: Hiking benefit No. 1: It lets you take control of your workout. Most trendy trainers tout high-intensity workouts, but few point out that the fast and furious approach doesn't work for everyone. "Unfortunately, in today's environment a lot of what we see in the media is about going as hard as you can, as quick as you can," said Anthony Wall, director of professional development at the American Council on Exercise. All-in workouts surely have their place, but if they're not your scene, that doesn't mean you're a fitness failure. With hiking, you can chart your own course: Is it a slowly inclining scenic trail or a steep trek up a mountain?

Injury Updates As Bills Begin Training Camp - Time Warner Cable News
By rinazbinds, 11:12

Currently, out of 64 starting guards in the league, Boone's compensation ranks him as the 43rd highest paid based on a three-year average of the guards' first three seasons of their deals. Among the top 20 guards in the league, the highest paid based on that same three-year average is Carl Nicks at $10.66 million; at No. 20 is Chris Chester at $4.16 million. Boone wants a deal that is reflective of the value he believes he has brought to the team over the last two years as a starter and a projection of the value he'll bring to the team moving forward.

Walk Chip's Way: Eagles' Kelly a stickler for discipline

As a result, general manager Doug Whaley said Friday seventh round draft pick Seantrel Henderson enters as the top guy at left tackle. Having Glenn out for an extended period would be a big loss, but Whaley hopes he'll be able to return soon. "Were still waiting on some reports on him but it looks like its going to be one of those day-to-day things and well see how it progresses," Whaley said. "Hes going to be here and hell be doing some light exercises and stuff like that." Mike Williams says he's fully healthy and primed for the start of training camp. The Bills traded for the Buffalo native to bolster the receiving corps.

In August, after the first preseason game, he publicly questioned the defense's tenacity. And before the season opener he got into a practice scrum with Cooper in which he repeated the same racial slur the receiver had been caught using on video several weeks prior. Williams admitted that his relationship with Kelly is limited because he plays on defense. But after a few one-on-one meetings following last year's controversies, he said he felt his coach had his best interests at heart.

For Bears, Backup Qb 1 Of Few Questions On Offense - Yahoo Sports
By rinazbinds, 07:55

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -- Almost as soon as he signed with the Chicago Bears , Jimmy Clausen got some http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-6i89_EH70 tutoring on the offense from Jay Cutler . If everything goes according to plan, his knowledge of the system won't be tested in a meaningful way. The Bears would love nothing more than to see Cutler get through the season without missing time and render the backup quarterback spot a non-issue. Instead, it's one of the few areas of concern for an offense that ranked among the league's best last season and has all its starters back. For now, coach Marc Trestman has the returning Jordan Palmer in the lead.

Hrv Football Starts Season With High Hopes | Hood River News
By rinazbinds, 10:59

We could have a strong passing team or it could be a strong running team; we just have to see what the personality of our team is going to be after playing a game or two and see how things fall into place. The Eagles competed in a jamboree last Friday at Summit High School in Bend, where they played three different teams for approximately one quarter of action that included 24 plays. The Eagles had a total of 72 plays against the three opponents (Summit, Reynolds, and Centennial). Things went well at the jamboree; we played pretty good and it gave us a chance to try and eliminate some of those early season mistakes that are so common at the beginning of the year, said Sperry. We really have a better idea now on what we need to focus on improving.

Narberth man's growing non-profit, The First Twenty, aims to improve firefighter wellness, earns national support - Main Line Times - Main Line Media News

When he went online, though, What I found was there was no national fitness initative for firefighters. What he did find was that statistic about line-of-duty deaths, and the even more sobering fact that for every firefighter suffering a fatal heart attack, there were 17 non-fatal attacks on duty. Whats more, a 2009 FEMA study found that firefighters had a 300-percent greater risk of heart attack than any other population. Obesity, a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease, was another common problem. Wurtzel said he set out to design an online program that would be easily available to firefighters. He established a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of firefighters and decreasing deaths due to heart attack.

Bowman not only made the grab at the top of his jump but also held onto the ball as he hit the ground. On the next play, CB Ross Weaver had excellent coverage on Randle as another deep ball by Manning fell incomplete. - It was a promising day for the tight ends. Veteran Daniel Fells, looking for a spot on the roster, broke free from LB Jameel McClain over the middle and was the recipient of a strong strike by Manning for a touchdown.

Ideally he will be on the field in running, passing or short-yardage situations. That's an asset Miami didn't have last season with Miller and Thomas carrying most of the load. Upgrading the position is essential. The Dolphins rushed for 90 yards a game as a team, which ranked 26th in the NFL. Worse, the running backs were bad in pass protection, too, and they share some of the blame for the 58 sacks allowed.

The drive ended four plays later when he missed receiver Alex Gillett in the flat on third-and-4. His only other incompletion was on a pass that appeared to be tipped near the line of scrimmage. The backup quarterback snaps have been split equally between Flynn and Tolzien the first two days. Although he played in three games last season (including two starts), this is Tolzien's first chance to go through an offseason with the Packers after being signed to the practice squad last September. "Work ethic, he http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-6i89_EH70 knocks it out of the park, and you're seeing the benefits of that," coach Mike McCarthy said.

Adams, the Packers' second-round draft pick, had a tough assignment during the first team period when he drew cornerback Casey Hayward . A day earlier, Hayward got his hands on just about every pass thrown his way . But not this time, Adams ran an out route and used his 6-foot-1, 215-pound frame to shield Hayward from the ball.

My 1,000th point (though), that was something I knew I had to work hard for, Varano said. That was in reach, but also being a four-time district champion; 1,000 points is just a little excitement on the way. Varano was phenomenal on the hardwood, helping the Red Tornadoes claim their fourth consecutive District 4 Class AA crown. While her 1,292 career points 464 during her senior year was indicitive of her scoring prowess, Varano was also a threat defensively stealing balls and disrupting rhythm. Ali Varano was a HAC-II first-team all-star, averaging 5.2 steals over 30 games, led the Red Tornadoes offensively with a hefty 15.2 points per game and also off the glass with 5.8 rebounds. She also was second this year in assists with 2.3.
