All tag results for 'strength'
If you are looking to get a little more out of your dance workout, try wearing heavier shoes (like a cool new pair of hightops) or buying light ankle weights. Also, any chance you get during the workout, engage your core. It will help with stability and strengthen your tummy muscles.

Stay balanced (even if you don't do yoga.) Build flexibility while building strength. Too much of anything is harmful. You don't want to be as flexible as Gumby, but not be strong enough to get out of a yoga pose. Nor do you want to be strong enough to lift a small elephant, but not be able to bend down and tie your shoes. Be balanced and be strong.

Try Cardio-Acceleration (short bursts of cardio between strength training exercises). Pick up a jump rope. (I have a new one out called Jump! The Ultimate Rope). Perform 100 rotations in between sets for ultimate fat burning without sacrificing tone.

This is a case of where the title says it all!
Just kidding, they're not actually throwing handfuls of gummy bears into boobs — but they're taking one of the key things that makes a gummy bear a gummy bear: how it retains it's shape even when you squeeze it.
'Cuz you know them thangs gots to be squeezed! Ha!
The new FDA approved implant is becoming all the rage, and it's actually safer than the saline kind. Even if it ruptures, it keeps it's form!
It's actually a high-strength silicone gel, according to Dr. Grant Stevens (which is a total soap opera name):
“If you removed the shell covering, the silicone inside would retain its shape. I got tired of explaining to patients that they’re sort of like Jello—which, when you cut it in squares, holds its shape. One day I just said, ‘They’re like gummy bears.’"
The thing is this, though: don't eat them. They're not gummy bears and they probably do not taste good. Look and touch only.
Do U wanna get a pair??
Model and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs is thankfully getting better, according to her mom, Cheryl.
It's been almost three months since Lauren's propeller accident, which caused her to lose her left eye and hand, but her mom says that she is moving forward and "regaining strength."
In Cheryl's blog update, she wrote:
"We have had some great talks! There's been lots of laughter, amongst the tears. She is regaining her strength. She's taking one day at a time, but she finds it hard to be patient at times. She wants to 'sprint' through this ordeal. And frankly we do too.
[It] is a marathon. And in a marathon, one must pace themselves, and be diligent in training, in order to finish the race well. It's the new norm."
It's a tough road, but she seems to be doing well and we couldn't be more proud of her.

Hello Mr Brenes,
What are the fitness components in boxing?
According to Alex:
Janis, that's and easy one,all of them, Strenght (hit harder), speed (hit and move faster), endurance (hit harder, faster and move longer), agility (don't get hit and hit some body), coordination (don't be clumsy so you can do it right), nutrition (provide your body the fuel needed to perfom to the maximum). Done right like we do at DeLaBBC, boxing is one of the most complete ways to get in the best shape of your life!
