Chess Boxing Is A Real Thing And It's Exactly What It Sounds Like!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueZportzBoxing

chess boxing combines chess and boxing in uk

While boxing is a competition of strength and stamina, the game of chess is more of a battle of wits!

But have you ever wondered what would happen if you combined the two for one hybrid sport??

Yeah, us neither. But apparently a few people in the UK did as they came up with the idea of chess boxing!

Matt "Crazy Arms" Reid explains the sport that combines brain and brawn, and it's basically exactly what it sounds like!

Two fighters step into the ring for boxing rounds that are three minutes long. Between each round, the two opponents play four minute rounds of "blitz" chess, which means they have to move their pieces as quickly as possible!

So how do you end a match of chess boxing? Well, it's pretty simple actually. To come out victorious, you either have to win at chess or knock out your opponent!!

Honestly, we're not sure which aspect of this game sounds more grueling: The fighting, or the chess!

But we're pretty sure either one would make our heads hurt!

Mix Up Your Cardio Workouts Like A WWEDiva!

Filed under: FitnessAdviceWWEDivas

If you are reading 50 Shades of Gray (shame on you), on top of your twitter game or wear your hair down during your cardio workout… Maybe it's time to hit some hybrid cardio. Are you ready to challenge yourself and try something out of your comfort zone? No? OK, keep reading anyways.

There's nothing wrong with a good session of steady low intensity cardio on the treadmill, elliptical or even a scenic walk/jog of your neighborhood or city, but changing up your routine can be exciting and help to maximize your results.

Everyone has routines and yes, sometimes we get tired and complacent doing the same old thing day in and day out. For instance, brushing my teeth. OK, bad example. That's part of maintaining good hygiene and is another topic entirely. Quick side note - I recently bought a Justin Beiber singing tooth brush as a joke. Turns out it's a quality tooth brush and it only occasionally starts playing on its own in the middle of the night. Solid purchase!

Anyways, so we get bored of always doing the same thing, right? I start to dread cardio when I think of how monotonous it can be. While boredom is a good reason to mix things up, changing your cardio routine can kick start your metabolism and, dare I say, actually make it enjoyable. Yea, I said it! (Please don't stop reading. It's worth it to finish. There might be a pony in it for you. And by "pony" I mean some good ideas to help inspire more efficient and empowering workouts)

So what the hell am I talking about besides Beiber and ponies, you ask? Here's an example of how to make things interesting, force you to put that book down and leave you a hot sweaty mess:

-Jump on a treadmill
-Start out by walking 3.5ish mph for the first 5 minutes to warm up.
-Then set the treadmill to the highest incline possible and do large lunging steps at a speed of 1.5-2.5 mph for 5 minutes
-Lower incline to 5 and walk at a speed of 3.8-4ish mph for another 5 minutes
-Lower incline to zero and and run one minute as fast as you can then walk one minute to recover. Repeat this for 10 minutes.
-Jog for another 5 minutes (any incline you choose)
-Set highest incline possible and do large lunging steps again for 5 minutes
-Lower incline to zero and run one minute as fast as you can then walk one minute to recovery. Repeat this for 10 minutes.
-Walk 3.5ish mph for 5 minutes to cool down.
-Then let the feeling of accomplishment wash over you for an undetermined amount of time.
Boom! That's what I call "hybrid" cardio.

You can apply this type of variety to any and all cardio machines. Just play with the resistance, incline and intervals. See how much fun we're having! Speaking of fun, don't forget that the world is your playground and you are not limited to a gym. Try hybrid cardio outside in the park, at a stadium and even on the stairs at your apartment complex. Just please do me a favor and don't be a mall walker. So help me if I catch you with short running shorts and ankle weights pumping your arms as you speed walk by Macy's.

paris-hilton-runs-out-of-gas.jpg

This has happened to her before!

Paris Hilton was stalled on the side of the road when her GMC Yukon Hybrid rand out of gas AND electricity!!

She and new BFF Brooke Mueller were filming their new Oxygen reality show in Los Feliz, CA when her car broke down. Paris took to her Twitter to vent her frustration:

So brutal, my car ran out of gas. Waiting for my girls to come rescue me. Yes, I saw that it said low fuel, but it said I had 32 miles of gas left. So I thought I could make it to the gas station. Brooke to the rescue! Thank goodness for great friends.

LOLs.

We're sure we'll get to see all the running-out-of-gas dramz on their "reality" show.

Demi Goes Green And Tries Out $90,000 Mercedes Hybrid

Filed under: Demi MooreEnvironment

demi goes green and tries out mercedes hybrid

Looks like Demi Moore is thinking about going green, and she's doing so in style!

On Twitter, Demi posted a picture of herself in front of a $90,000 Mercedes-Benz S400 hybrid.

Here's what she said along with her pic:

"Trying out the new Mercedes Hybrid - love that they are going green and with style!"

Given the fact that hubby Ashton got her a brand new 2010 Prius for her 47th birthday last year, there's been talk that this fancy hybrid may be a present for Kutcher's 33rd.

We say go for it, bb! The car looks awesome AND you'll be helping the environment!
