Dwight Howard battled a severe candy habit for around a decade, ESPN reported earlier this week.


According to Dr. Cate Shanahan, the Lakers’ nutritionist who uncovered Howard’s habit in early 2014 while he was with the team, the NBA player apparently consumed an average of 24 chocolate candy bars a day. People magazine estimated that equated to around 5,500 calories daily. 


Shanahan told ESPN that because of Howard’s habit, the then 27-year-old NBA was sluggish on the court and had difficulty healing from injuries. He’d also begun experiencing tingling in his legs and fingers, which the nutritionist suspected was dysesthesia, a painful neurological sensation


Professor Laura Schmidt of the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine told The Huffington Post that she’s surprised the NBA was unaware of the extent of Howard’s habit and how it affected his athletic performance. 


“Shanahan was smart to start by cleaning up Howard’s food environment—that’s a critical first step,” Schmidt wrote via email. “Unfortunately you can’t exercise away the health harms of a poor diet. The health harms from excessive sugar intake range from fatty liver, to insulin sensitivity leading to diabetes and other cardiometabolic diseases.”


She added, “Some of the sugar he consumed would have been mobilized immediately as energy for all of his activity, which hopefully mitigated some of the adverse effects.” 



Howard was eventually able to quit his sugar habit by getting rid of all of his boxes of candy and going cold turkey, with the exception of pared-down peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.


While most people won’t develop a dramatic 24-candy bar a day habit, eating a high level of sugar (which the American Heart Association classifies as 100 calories of refined sugar daily for women and 150 calories for men) can lead to problems like obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Unfortunately, problems with excessive sugar are all too common for Americans, according to Schmidt. 


“The majority of Americans are overweight or obese—70 percent of us,” she told HuffPost. “Excess carbohydrate consumption is a leading cause of our obesity epidemic. What’s interesting about Howard is that he wasn’t getting all that added sugar in liquid form. Sugary drinks are the main way people get into trouble with excessive sugar intake.” 


If you or someone you know is looking to cut down on sugar intake, Professor Schmidt offers six easy ways to curb your sweet habit. Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, a pediatric neurologist, told The Splendid Table she recommends incorporating more bitter foods into your diet, by way of fruit and veggie peels, dark chocolate, coffee and beer.

One of the best scenes ― as in, rewind-immediately-and-watch-it-again-it’s-so-good ― in “Big Little Lies” is Episode 4’s board-room confrontation. Three of our finest actresses stake out territory across a table: Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon on one side, and Laura Dern on the other.


Battling over a controversial local production of “Avenue Q,” Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Witherspoon) and lawyer Celeste Wright (Kidman) argue the town of Monterey wouldn’t want a censorship scandal by giving in to Renata Kline’s (Dern) insistence that the mayor shut down a production of the profane musical.


For Dern, who has remained close friends with Witherspoon since they made 2014’s “Wild” together, it was a delicious scene to perform. 


“As beautiful as the experience is working with fellow women and doing that whole scene,” Dern said, “Reese and I have become like family ... so to look across from each other, all I can say is we’re filled with such contempt with every look, and after every take we would be grateful for them to cut so that we could howl out loud. You just can’t believe how fun it is to hate someone you love so much. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m hating you this much!’”


Dern cracked up while recalling the experience during a recent Huffington Post interview for Build Series, so do yourself a favor and watch her describe it in the above video.


Below, Dern talks about the costumes in “Big Little Lies” and her new movie “Wilson,” which opens this weekend.

Riverdale” star Cole Sprouse isn’t afraid to admit when he’s done something questionable in the past. He also isn’t afraid to laugh at himself, despite his embarrassment, and we can’t help but love and respect that.


He tweeted a photo on Friday of an old quote that looks to be from an old magazine.


In it, he describes his “type” of girl as someone who “doesn’t get worked up about anything” and is “not the kind of girl who is so worried about how she looks that she has to put on pounds of makeup.” LOLz, yikes.

— Cole M. Sprouse (@colesprouse) March 24, 2017



While that’s not exactly the most ~romantic~ description of true love, we have to give Sprouse a pass on this one. The kid was so young! And he admits that he does feel “tormented” by his somewhat shallow remark.


If the rumors are true and he’s really dating his “Riverdale” castmate Lili Reinhart, we’re glad to know he’s matured.

This article originally appeared on DailyBurn.com.

Creating an all-encompassing workout — one that gets your heart rate up while strengthening every major muscle group — takes some fancy fit work. But it’s something Steve Uria, founder of Switch Playground in New York City (original location: South Africa), does with gusto. If you’ve never been to the playground, imagine recess for adults but with more structure and sculpting goals.

Each class at Switch includes 20 stations, with two exercises per station. You’ll work every body part — big and small — and because you only do each exercise for 30 seconds (two minutes total per station), you’ll break a serious sweat to boot. (The party vibe with a live DJ and neon lights will help you turn up the intensity, too.)

“Circuit workouts promote a functional training environment to condition the whole body,” Uria explains. “You’re maximizing benefit in minimal time, and creating a cardiovascular experience within a strength training arena.” In other words, you simultaneously pump up the volume on fat burning and muscle building.

Of course, we couldn’t leave Uria’s fun and games at the playground, so we had him design a sequence you could do right at home. All you need is a set of dumbbells, a kettlebell and med ball, and a killer workout playlist (like this one). Crank the volume, and you’re ready to blast through these circuits.

4 Mini Circuit Workouts, 1 Killer Total-Body Routine

Get ready for one mini circuit for every section of the body, plus a total-body scorcher. Each circuit features just three moves — but packs plenty of targeted body benefits. Do 12 to 15 reps of each move and two to three rounds of each circuit before moving on to the next. If you still have some drive by that final exercise, push it into high gear and repeat everything from the top, Uria says. Sweaty, sculpted and oh-so-energized… here you come!

Lower Body Circuit Workout

Fire up some of the biggest muscles in the body: your quads, hamstrings, and even more so, your glutes. Hello, booty burn.

1. Side Step Squat
How to: With a dumbbell in each hand and your arms down by your sides, stand with feet hip-width apart (a). Step out to the left side, push your hips back and drop your butt down to sit into a squat (b). Stand up straight, then step your feet back to the starting position (c). Next, step out to the right side and sit into a squat (d). Stand up, return to the starting position, and continue alternating.

2. Back Lunge with Knee Raise
How to: Start standing with feet hip-width apart (a). Step your left foot back into a low lunge, both knees bent at 90 degrees and your left knee hovering just off the floor. At the same time, bring your arms straight up at a 45-degree angle (b). Step forward, bringing your left knee up toward your chest, as you bring your arms back down to your sides (c). Repeat, then switch sides.

3. Glute Cross Overs
How to: Start on all fours with your shoulders over wrists and your knees in line with hips (a). Bring your right knee in toward your chest, then shoot it straight out behind you, raising it straight up toward the ceiling (b). Then move your right leg over your left leg, and tap the floor lightly with your right foot, just outside of your left foot (c). Shoot it back up to the ceiling and repeat, then switch sides.

Upper Body Circuit Workout

You’ll work your entire upper body — shoulders, chest, back, triceps and biceps — with this muscle-burning trifecta. Remember to keep your shoulders rolled down and away from your ears for each exercise.

1. Lateral Dumbbell Raise into Curl Press
How to: Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with your feet hip-width apart and arms down in front of you (a). Raise your arms straight out to the sides to shoulder height, palms facing down (b). Bring your arms back down to your sides and then, circle your hands inward and upward for a bicep curl (c). When the dumbbells reach shoulder height, swiftly switch your palms to face front. Then push your hands straight up for an overhead press (d). Bring your arms back down, flipping your palms to face you at chest height and return to the starting position (e). Repeat.

2. Push-Up Rotation
How to: Start in a high plank position with your hands holding dumbbells, shoulders over wrists and your body in a straight line from shoulders to ankles (a). Perform a push-up (b). Then, pull the weight in your left hand straight up to your chest, as you pivot on your feet. Straighten your arm to a T as you hit your side plank (c). Return back to the high plank and repeat on the other side (d). Continue alternating, with a push-up between each rotation.

3. Bent Over Fly to Row to Tricep Kickback
How to: Start with your feet hip-width apart with a slight bend in the knees. Hinge forward at the hips about 45 degrees. Maintain a flat back (a). Holding two dumbbells down by your sides, palms facing each other, lift your arms out to the sides (slight bend in the elbows) and squeeze your shoulder blades together to complete a fly (b). Bring your arms back down to your sides, then pull the weight toward your chest and bend your elbows. Keeping your elbows elevated, straighten your arms behind you to complete the tricep kickback. You should raise the weights above your hips (c). Return to the start and repeat.

New York tweaks its medical marijuana program, a Rhode Island MMJ committee meets eight years after its formation, and a new cannabis advocacy group is born.

Here’s a closer look at some notable developments in the marijuana industry over the past week.

Not enough change?

New York’s medical marijuana program implemented two major reforms in recent weeks: Chronic pain is now a qualifying condition, and physician assistants are permitted to certify patients for MMJ.

While that should help make the state’s five licensed MMJ producers more viable business models, further changes

The commission said in a news release that samples of Blue Magoo cannabis grown by Emerald Wave Estate tested positive for excess levels of pyrethrins, a chrysanthemum-based insecticide that also can be made synthetically.

The tainted cannabis was shipped to a retailer, Buds 4 U in Mapleton, Oregon, before the pesticide test results were recorded in the OLCC’s tracking system, the commission said.

4 Upper-Body Exercises to Steal From Taraji P. Henson’s Workout http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/4-upper-body-exercises-to-steal-from-taraji-p-hensonrsquos-workout http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/4-upper-body-exercises-to-steal-from-taraji-p-hensonrsquos-workout#comments Thu, 23 Mar 2017 21:21:07 +0000 http://www.health.com/fitness/taraji-p-henson-upper-body-workout Not only is Taraji P. Henson a powerhouse on screen as Cookie Lyon on the hit Fox series Empire, but the actress has also proven to be one in the gym too. Don’t believe us? Just check out this video her trainer, Mike T. of Force Fitness Inc., shared on Instagram the other day. While we're tired just watching Taraji get her sweat on, the 46-year-old mom seems to just breeze through this strength circuit.

Looking to boost your upper-body strength too? Try working your way through the exact moves that keep Taraji looking super toned.

Chest Press With Legs Lifted

Lie faceup on a bench, with legs up, knees bent at about 90 degrees and ankles crossed. Hold a dumbbell in each hand on either side of chest; palms face forward. Lift both weights, pushing them straight up until arms are fully extended. Pause for a second, and then lower back to start. Continue repeating.

Biceps Curl in Split Stance

Stand with feet staggered, one foot in front of the other, and knees slightly bent. Hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of body; palms face out. Lean forward slightly, bend elbows, and curl dumbbells toward shoulders. Slowly lower weights back down to start, and then repeat. Alternate stance with each set.

[brightcove:5244736693001 default]

Seated Chest Fly

Adjust seat height on machine so that handles are at chest height. Sit tall with feet planted on floor and middle and lower back touching the back of the seat. Maintaining a slight bend in elbows, squeeze the handles, bringing them in toward one another until hands meet. Pause, and then slowly open arms back out to start. Continue repeating. 

Single Arm American Kettlebell Swing

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and knees bent into a half-squat. Grasp kettlebell with one hand so it hangs between (and slightly behind) calves. Come up out of squat, letting kettlebell swing until arm is extended straight up over head, and then bend at hips and knees to squat back down as the kettlebell swings back between legs. Repeat with opposite arm.

That's why it's important to make every minute count. These proven tips and techniques will turn up your calorie burn during every workout you do, helping you bust through fitness plateaus and melt fat away in less time.

Pump up the jams

Pop in your earbuds, cue up your favorite playlist and get cranking. Listening to music is one of the easiest—and most fun—ways to rev up your calorie burn. When a team of University of Wisconsin researchers asked men and women to perform two 8-minute exercise sessions on a stationary bike, one with music and one in silence, the exercisers increased their average heart rate by 10 beats per minute, worked harder, and burned 7% more calories when they pedaled to tunes.

[brightcove:5315457854001 default]

Pair up with an inspirational partner

Exercising with someone just a little better than you can bring out your calorie-scorching best. In one study, researchers from Kansas State University found that people who exercised with a partner they thought was a little fitter and stronger than they were increased their workout time and intensity by as much as 200%.

Let go of the rails

The more muscles you use, the more calories you burn. That means letting go of the rails on the treadmill and not leaning on the elliptical so your lower body and supporting core muscles have to work harder to keep you upright and in motion.

Put your arms into it

Race-walkers have an adage: As your arms go, your legs follow. If you want to speed up your pace and turn up your burn, pump your arms faster and your feet will follow. You’ll also engage more upper body muscles for another calorie burning bonus. Ditto for your elliptical machine sessions. Research shows that exercisers use more fat-burning oxygen when they get their arms into the action by using the elliptical machines handles than when they churn along with their legs alone.

Find your sweet spot

High intensity interval training (HIIT) may be great for getting a big metabolic bump for your exercise time, but because it's so hard, many people burn out and don’t do it enough to see results. For a better, consistently higher, calorie burn, you want to hit your “sweet spot,” says Daniel Frankl, PhD, kinesiology professor at California State University, Los Angeles. “That’s the highest submaximal exercise intensity you can tolerate for 30 minutes.” You know you’re there when your breathing is slightly labored, but you can still talk in short sentences.

Wear some weights

Heavier people burn more calories because their bodies have to work harder to keep them in motion. You obviously don’t want to gain weight to burn calories, but you can fake it by wearing a weighted vest or adjustable weight garment like the TITIN Force Shirt System, a compression shirt that lets you slip up to 8 pounds of weight into 14 pockets. Research shows adding weight to your workouts can increase your calorie burn by 7% during moderate walks and more than 13% during step-climbing exercise.

Use the force

Gravity is an unexpected, but effective calorie burner—you have to work exponentially harder to fight its forces when you walk, bike, or run at an incline. Head to the hills: you can burn 50% more calories when you go from pancake-level terrain to a more challenging 6% incline.

Drink some java

Caffeine not only revs your metabolism, but also is a proven performance enhancer. Studies show that the energizing chemical found in coffee reduces your perception of exercise, so hard efforts feel easier and you can go harder, longer and burn more calories.

[brightcove:5369836589001 default]

Cool your jets

Hydrate with icy-cold water for a one-two metabolic calorie burning punch. For one, downing a couple cups of cold water can raise your metabolism by about 5% as your body works to warm the fluid. Also drinking an icy beverage before exercising in the heat can help you feel fresher and crank out longer and harder efforts before fatiguing, so you can easily burn more calories.

Tune in, not out

Texting, watching TV, and flipping through a magazine are good ways to multitask while spinning away on the stationary bike or churning through an elliptical workout, says Frankl. “But they take your attention away your workout so you may not be giving it your best effort,” says Frankl. “Paying attention to your effort—your heart rate, your breathing, the sensation in your muscles—helps you maintain a steady effort so you can burn more calories,” he says.

The deal is perhaps the first of its kind for a U.S.-based marijuana testing company to expand internationally. An Israeli testing firm announced last month it planned to set up shop in North America.

Aside from California, Steep Hill already has labs in Alaska, Hawaii, Maryland, New Mexico and Washington state, according to its website.

The simple goal of Steep Hill’s Israeli lab is “to further research the cannabis plant,” according to a news release.

MMJ industry advocates said they are encouraged with legislation that state lawmakers have begun to hammer out to implement last November’s voter-approved medical cannabis referendum.

That wasn’t necessarily the case at the start of 2017.

In January, state health officials proposed rules that would give the seven CBD businesses entire control of the larger medical marijuana market.

But many dancers have rejected that rigid idea of what a ballerina is supposed to look like—and instead, they've led a shift towards embracing a diverse range of athletic ballerina bodies. One woman who's played a major role in that movement is none other than Misty Copeland, the iconic principle dancer at the American Ballet Theater.

“We are real women and ballerinas, muscular, feminine but also strong, lithe but also curvaceous,” Copeland writes in her new book, Ballerina Body: Dancing and Eating Your Way to a Leaner, Stronger, and More Graceful You ($30, amazon.com). But Copeland doesn’t pretend she always felt so confident in her skin. “None of it was easy. Not my climb in the ballet world, not my arrival at a place of personal contentment and peace, not my journey to the body I stand in.”

Her book is her way of helping other women reach the same state of body confidence that she now exudes to the world. “I dream of sharing what I’ve learned—of showing women everywhere how to reach their body goals and achieve what they see as their best selves," she says.

For Copeland, that has meant prioritizing exercise, as an integral and positive element of her day. “Working out, so essential to our mental and physical well-being, can and should be woven through every part of our lives,” Copeland says.

Below are four exercises that she incorporates in her cross-training routine, to help maintain her ideal ballerina body—“one that is lean but sinewy, with muscles that are long, sculpted, and toned.” But you certainly don't have to be a dancer to reap the benefits of these challenging moves. Try them out to get toned from head to (pointed) toe.

Relevé

“Relevé” means “raised,” or lifted, and describes the position when you rise onto the balls of your feet (demi-pointe) or onto the toes (pointe) of one or both feet.

a. Begin in first position. Demi-plié, then stretch your knees and rise onto demi-pointe (relevé). Repeat this three times and old on the count of four. When done to music, the counts are to the timing of the music.

b. Repeat once. When you get stronger, you may do four repetitions.

Remember to hold your posture. The flexing and pointing also prepare and strengthen your ankles to allow you to stand on demi-pointe (or en pointe, if you are an advanced dancer).

Balancing Adagio

“Adagio” refers to the slow movement in the ballet technique. As much as the adagio is about flexibility, strength, and fluidity in the movement, learning this exercise on the floor will give you an advantage before approaching it standing. On the floor you acquire a sense of balance and where your weight should be in order to leverage it to make you legs appear higher and more extended in opposition to our upper body.

This exercise should be done slowly to improve balance, alignment, abdominal strength, and stamina.

a. Start by sitting with your legs together on the floor in front of you.

b. Lift your legs into the air by bending your knees, holding the backs of your things with your hands with your legs still bent and parallel to each other.

c. Leaning back, with your back straight and the backs of your thighs (hamstrings) leaning into your hands, slowly lengthen both legs into the air until they are fully straight, making you into a V shape. Bend your knees so the tips of your toes touch the floor. Now do the same with each leg, alone, keeping the tips of the toes of your other leg posed on the floor.

d. Repeat the sequence, beginning with the other leg, when doing the single-leg section.

Seaweed

This exercise is great for freeing and lengthening the spine and for centering and strengthening the core.

a. Begin lying on your back, your legs together and parallel and your feet pointed.

b. Bend your legs slowly, bringing them off the floor, still bent, and lifting your feet off the floor as well, while your back hugs the ground.

c. Keeping your lower back on the floor and your shoulder blades drawn down toward your waist, curl your upper back off the floor, around your lower abs. Your arms should act like seaweed being moved by the motion of the tides, around and behind your lifted legs.

d. Float your upper back and arms down to the floor, legs still bent, body still energized.

e. Repeat four times, bringing your legs gently toward your head as your core and upper body lift, igniting the lower abdominal muscles.

f. After the last time, hold one hand or wrist (depending on the length of your arms) with the other, behind your thighs.

g. Lengthen your legs straight into the air, pressing the backs of your legs into your arms. 


h. Propel your legs to the floor, arms still around them, until you get close to the floor. Then open your arms to the sides and move them forward toward your feet, over your head.

i. Your upper back should bend forward over your legs as you transition from lying to sitting, with the backs of your hands on the floor to help stabilize and keep the backs of your legs on the floor. 


j. Roll down through your spine until your back is on the floor and you are in the starting position, with your shoulders relaxed. Repeat two to four times. 


[brightcove:5288202866001 default]

Dégagé

“Dégagé” means “disengaged.” When preparing for dégagés in particular, but whenever you’re lying on the floor, you should feel like you are standing or jumping—not lying on the sand at the beach!

This exercise is good for length, strength, and alignment. Be sure to press the parts of your back and body that are touching the surface of the floor to the floor, allowing your working leg to float up, initiating the movement with your inner thighs and the backs of the legs rather than the top of your thighs (quadriceps).

a. Begin lying on your back with your feet in first position (heels together and toes apart, feet pointed). 


b. Place your arms at your sides with your palms facing down; you can vary the positioning of your arms depending on what makes you comfortable, as long as your arms don’t go above your shoulders. 


c. Keep your legs elongated, straight on the floor. 


d. Use your palms and arms by pressing them to the floor. This will help to strengthen 
your core and align the spine. 


e. Lift one leg two or three inches from the floor, with your toes still pointed out, by pressing the standing leg (again, whether you’re standing or lying on the floor, the standing leg is the one that is not moving; it helps to maintain balance), your arms, and your head into the floor. This will help you to lift the working leg while maintaining stability throughout your body. Do four dégagés with one leg front, then switch legs and do four with the other leg front. 


f. Now do four dégagés to each side. For these, your working leg stays on the floor, brushing along the floor as it extends to the side. Do not disturb the balance of the pelvis or the back as you move the working leg.

On Instagram yesterday, fitness influencer Anna Victoria shared a follower’s photos that document her inspiring recovery from an extreme exercise habit. 

In the "before" pic, @barbellkell_fbg is flexing her biceps in a bikini that shows off her chiseled six-pack. But what it took to get that sculpted bod was anything but healthy.

The photo on the left was taken a year and a half ago, when @barbellkell_fbg was committed to a 10-week plan that involved working out five times a week, sometimes twice a day, and counting macros (down to chewing gum, vitamins, and cough drops), she explains in the caption. "[Z]ero balance, zero living, zero sustainability," she wrote. "I had my full time job and this, which was another full time job basically."

The strict dieting and intense workouts took a serious toll. By the end of the plan, @barbellkell_fbg had a flat belly, and no trace of cellulite—but her energy levels had plummeted. "I could barely lift my feet to run on the treadmill," she wrote. A blood test showed her white blood cell count was severely depressed. It was so low her doctor wanted to test her for cancer, she says.

After convincing him to do another blood test in a month, @barbellkell_fbg committed to getting back to "normal." She ate "to survive," she said; and in time, she gained fat and her white blood cell count recovered.

[brightcove:5305635850001 default]

OD'ing on exercise is a real thing, and it can cause everything from fatigue to chronic achiness—even an elevated heart rate, which puts more demand on your ticker. "Overexercising often contributes to pain, dehydration, or electrolyte imbalances, all of which can lead to an increase in heart rate," Kathryn Berlacher, MD, a cardiologist at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, explained to Health in a prior interview.

As for @barbellkell_fbg, she's come a long way in the last 18 months. She now follows Anna Victoria’s Fit Body Guides, and eats what she wants in moderation. "I feel good. I am strong. I am happy," she says—and she loves the body she has now.

Erin is a self-proclaimed exercise addict.

The 39-year-old from San Diego, California reveals on Tuesday’s episode of the syndicated daytime series The Doctors that she builds her whole life around fitting in workout sessions.

“I exercise eight hours a day,” she says in an exclusive clip. “I never get tired, I don’t get sore.”

But even though her body can seemingly handle her excessive workouts, they do not make her feel good.

“I’ll cancel plans, I’ll cancel appointments. It’s been controlling my life,” she says. “I just can’t stop. It’s not giving me the rush that I used to feel just doing three to four hours.”

Erin says she squeezes in early morning workouts before work, and then returns to the gym when she is done for the day.

“Around 5 o’clock is when I work out, and then I go to work, and then I work out for another two hours,” she says.

But Erin also reveals she has been using exercise to avoid a painful trauma she experienced in the past.

“Eight months ago I got a message from a girl. It triggered a memory that I had suppressed for 30 years,” she says in the clip. “Basically from that time on I’ve been adding on exercise so that I can just forget about that whole nightmare of those four years of life.”

Host Dr. Travis Stork commends Erin for seeking the help she needs to fight her addiction.

“Before we get into where we need to go from here, we have to acknowledge where we are right now,” he says. “I’m so happy you realize that you need to change, because when I saw those blood pressure readings, there are things in medicine we call hypertensive urgency, and those blood pressure numbers [are] quite alarming.”

[brightcove:5315457854001 default]

Gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, who is working to treat Erin, says he was also alarmed by the results.

“In the six years that I’ve done the show with you, Erin is the most ill person, the sickest person that we’ve had on the show in my opinion,” he says.

To find out more of her test results and to see if The Doctors can help Erin, check your local listings and tune into Tuesday’s episode.

You’ve danced along to Brazilian Butt Lift DVD workouts. Yet somehow you still aren’t the proud owner of a tush that resembles the peach emoji.

The truth is, the appearance of your butt is partially out of your control, says Harley Pasternak, celebrity trainer and Fitbit ambassador. “Genetics is the number-one component of the size and shape of your butt,” he says. “Different ethnicities also have certain biological predispositions for adiposity in different parts of the butt, or different waist-to-hip ratios that give the butt and hips a particular look,” he adds.

Pasternak also notes that how you've used your glutes throughout your life may also dictate the natural development of your butt. “So someone who was a gymnast as a kid might have more developed glutes, or an easier time toning the glutes as they get older, than someone who maybe didn’t do any sports as a child,” he explains.

Now for the good news: Just because you can't necessarily battle the natural curve of your booty doesn't mean you can't amp up the assets you have, he assures. Plus, there are so many benefits of developing a strong, toned tush that go beyond how it fills out your jeans. Having strong glutes can make you a better runner, improve your posture, and more.

[brightcove:5349535600001 default]

So genetics aside, what else could be stalling your dream derriere? There are other little errors that people unknowingly make that can take the emphasis off of the glutes, Pasternak says. Make these exercise and lifestyle adjustments to accelerate your results.

Don't rely on the same old butt exercises

Certain moves that we often associate with the glutes actually recruit other large lower-body muscles (namely the quadriceps) to do most of the work. "This tends to be the case with basic body-weight squats and leg presses," Pasternak says.

Instead, Pasternak recommends focusing more on unilateral movement, or working one side of the body at a time so that other large muscles in both legs don't dominate. "Unilateral training will allow you to access the glutes more directly," he says. Moves to work into your butt routine: single-leg deadlifts, lunges, and lying single-leg hip thrusts.

Add hills and speed drills to your cardio

"Your butt is mainly fat. That’s just a fact," Pasternak says—and fighting flab requires a combo of cardio and a healthy diet. But you should be doing more with your cardio than steady treadmill runs if you want to zero in on the glutes, he says. "Steady running can actually shorten the hamstrings and cause the glutes to become disengaged," he says.

Instead, opt for walking or sprinting. "Walking forces you into a longer stride, which gives you the opportunity to access your glutes better. Sprinting requires your knees to lift higher, which also fires up the glutes," Pasternak explains.

For even more effective butt-targeting cardio, add incline. "I think stairs are just the most underrated glute blaster there is," Pasternak says. "I recommend that all my clients hit a step goal of 10,000 or 15,000 steps per day, and at least 1,500 of those should be on hills or stairs if you want to really want to tone the glutes fast."

Sit less, stretch more

Putting all of your bodyweight on your butt for hours upon hours each day can actually change the shape of it, Pasternak says. “Sitting also shortens and tightens the hip flexors, which impacts our ability to really activate both our glutes and core even when we're not seated," adds physical therapist David Reavy, owner of React Physical Therapy in Chicago, Ill. 

After a period of being sedentary (and especially before going from desk chair to workout), Reavy suggests doing these three exercises to help lengthen the front of your body and re-activate the glutes:

Mobilization backbend: Start in a split stance, with one foot slightly behind you and the heel slightly raised. Reach back with the arm of the same side and place your fist on your sacrum. Lean back as far as you can and hold for a few seconds. Repeat the movement on the other side. Do about 10 reps on each side, bending back as far as you can each time.

Hip-flexor release: Lay on your stomach and put a lacrosse ball under your psoas. Allow your bodyweight to release onto the ball as much as possible without pain and lay until you feel your hip flexor relax.

Hip thrusts: Put your shoulders on a flat bench, heels on the ground. Using your glutes, lift your hips up to a bridge position, hold for a few seconds and lower your hips. Reavy suggests putting a resistance band around your thighs for added challenge: “This helps turn on your external rotators, which are part of your glutes, so you’ll be working your butt all the way around,” he says. Do three sets of 10 to 15 reps.

Trying to be a better runner? It's not just about logging miles (although that certainly helps). The key to running strong and long also has a lot to do with shoring up your muscles, activating your core and back in addition to your lower body, and keeping your movements fluid. To help do that, start incorporating these full-body strengthening moves from Nike+ Run Club coach Julia Lucas to your routine three days a week, before or after a run. You'll start noticing a difference in your strength in no time.

1. Planks

planks-runners-1

Planks have long been considered one of the best exercises for your core. In addition to your abs, this move engages your back, quads, and hamstrings, making it a great full-body exercise for runners. To do it, get into the “up” part of a push-up, with palms on the floor directly under shoulders and legs extended behind you, forming a straight line from head to heels. Hold for 10 to 30 seconds, keeping abs tight. Do 2 or 3 sets.

2. Clamshells

clamshells-runners-1

Clamshells work your hips and glutes, parts of the body that runners regularly need to activate. To do them, start out by lying on your side with legs stacked and knees bent at 45 degrees. Rest head on arm; place top hand on hip. With inside edges of feet touching, lift top knee as high as you can without shifting hips or pelvis. Pause; lower knee. Do 2 or 3 sets of 10 reps per side.

[brightcove:4933130856001 default]

3. Side squats

side-squats-runners

Side squats are a great way to strengthen your outer highs, hips, and glutes. To do, stand with feet hip-width apart, hands on hips; squat. Stand; move left foot a step out. Squat again; step left foot in as you rise. Continue, alternating sides. Do 2 or 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps per side.

Pin all of these moves for later:

If just thinking about a HIIT workout seems tiring, let the music play. A Journal of Sports Sciences study found that when people performed four 30-second all-out sprint intervals on a bike while listening to music, they had a more positive workout experience than when they pedaled without tunes—possibly because music helps distract you from the, uh, discomfort of a tough sprint. Try biking (or running or rowing) it out to one of these songs recommended by Steph Dietz, lead instructor at Cyc Fitness, an indoor-cycling studio chain.

"They’re perfect for intervals because they slowly build to the chorus, where the beat drops, picking up speed and intensity," says Dietz. "Each song has about two or three HIIT interval builds."

Many women neglect their arms, chest, and back due to a misguided fear of getting bulky. And while you may not love your bra bulge, a weak upper body can also wreck your posture and bring on back pain.

Barry's Bootcamp instructor and celeb personal trainer Astrid Swan wants you to get over your fear of upper body workouts, so she created this exclusive routine for Health. This seven-move sequence revs your heart rate to torch calories and melt away fat from your whole body (including your back). Plus, these sculpting exercises will perk up your posture, which may minimize the appearance bra bulge. Use a pair of heavy dumbbells; Swan suggests 12 lb. or higher, depending on your strength level. 

Pushups to superman

Lower all the way to the floor slowly as you do a pushup. Lay flat and extend arms forward to a superman position, lifting chest and thighs off the floor. Pull elbows down to goal-post position and lower your body down to press back up into the top of the pushup. Do 10 repetitions. 

Plank renegade rows

Start in plank position, using the dumbbells as handles.  Keep feet slightly wider than hip width, be sure to keep hips parallel to the floor and abs engaged. Alternate renegade rows, 10 repetitions per side, for 20 total reps.

Squat thrusters

Start with dumbbells on shoulders, feet hip-width apart with feet slightly turned out.  Lower down into a squat position, keeping chest tall and abs engaged. Power from the core and glutes to press the weights above head in a press. Be sure to avoid locking out your knees as you press the weights up to the top. Do 10 reps. 

RELATED: Look Better Naked With These Three Exercises from Dakota Johnson's Trainer

Combination of first three exercises

Combine all three moves minus the superman. Using the dumbbells as handles, do one pushup, at the top of the pushup complete renegade rows on the right side then left side. Next, jump your feet forward sand land in the bottom of your squat. Be sure to keep your core engaged as you thrust the weights above your head. Do 10 repetitions. 

Snatch passes

Using one dumbbell, bend knees slightly to hoist up the weight and snatch it to the top. Be sure to keep hips tucked and keep a small bend in the knees as you extend the arm. Return to starting position and pass the weight to the other side. Do 10 reps per side.  

Triceps extensions

Depending on your strength, you can continue using both weights or drop down to one. Do a triceps extension slowly; think three counts to lower and one count to press up. Keep your elbows tight, framing your face. Do 10 reps, slowly and with intention.

Halo

Hold one dumbbell on each end. Start with the dumbbell right under your chin, and pass it around your head clockwise for 10 reps, then counterclockwise for another 10 reps. Be sure to keep your elbows tight, framing your face, and bring the weight around your head (like a "halo") with elbows bent.

You can work smarter not harder. Here’s how… http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/you-can-work-smarter-not-harder-heres-how http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/you-can-work-smarter-not-harder-heres-how#comments Wed, 15 Mar 2017 01:38:43 +0000 http://indigoforce.com/?p=1099 This month’s blog posts are all about practicing the alternative to joining the burnout club which is joining the strengthen your emotional awareness club.  In that club you find peace and strength in owning what you believe about yourself, the people you work with, and your job situation.  As I said in my last post, “emotional well-being for your work has nothing to do with your job.

 

If you aren’t first emotionally aware of what your work is – the ultimate impact you wish to have on those you serve – then you have restricted your chances of feeling at peace about your job – the place you show up at every day in exchange for wages.

 

Remember, developing greater emotional awareness is a process – like anything else – and my 3 STEP process can help you get there:

 

STEP #1 - realize what you are thinking and feeling

STEP #2 - care for yourself AND others (or maybe it’s better said as for others AND yourself)

STEP #3- just say no – YES! Show favor for what you want – not what you don’t want.

 

Last blog post we looked at STEP #1.  In this post, let’s look closer at STEP #2 which is about learning how to advocate for yourself as well as for others (or others as well as yourself).  STEP #2 has nothing to do with feats of emotional strength that might include a Mr. Universe ability to kiss ass (don’t make any waves), or kill others with kindness niceness (even though you are really disgusted by their behavior) – remember kindness offers truth and caring).  STEP #2 also has nothing to do with developing killer corporate politics instincts such as the fine art of looking out for #1 at the expense of others while making it all look like you care about others or corporate initiatives.  If you are all about yourself at work – trust me, everyone knows it and you are fooling no one.

 

STEP #2 is actually about letting go of self judgment and judgment of others and instead just figuring out what is needed in order for you and others to feel whole, complete and comfortable in any situation you are dealing with.  Corporate speak for this is “win/win solutions”.

 

Time and time again, I used to see situations at work where disgruntled employees became that way because they would keep their mouth shut whenever they didn’t like something that was going on with their job because they were afraid of not being seen as a “team player”, or because they would be viewed as a “problem” employee if they voiced their concerns.  All that fear and all that mouth shutting only transformed them into cynical, disengaged workers.

 

When we believe the only solution is to let someone else have what they want or to go after what we want without regard for what will work for another, we open the door for defensiveness, arguments, power struggles, judgment, bad or hurt feelings, etc.

 

One of the reasons I always believed I was successful and effective in my career with employee relation issues is because I always believed in, looked for, and offered win/win solutions.  I knew finding what would work for everyone was possible.  After my corporate work, my transformational thinking mentors taught me to take win/win thinking a step further – to find the “I love you AND I love me too” solution.

 

Let’s apply an “I love you AND I love me too” solution to one the most influential relationships on our stress level at work – the boss relationship.  From time to time we all may feel like we just don’t have the energy to deal with certain people at work but our boss is rarely someone we can dodge for long.

 

Bosses are famous for what I call “demands disguised as requests” – so here is how you can practice the “I love you AND I love me too” approach when you feel forced into giving a compliant response to something you don’t feel truly good about.

 

For example, let’s say your boss asks: “Can you take on an additional project that will require you to work weekends and evenings for a few weeks?”  

 

On the spot, you may feel the only correct response is “Yes” - maybe because you don’t want to rock the boat or because RIFs are going on and you don’t want to be next on the chopping block or because bonus season is around the corner, blah, blah, blah.  So here we are at STEP #1 – realize what you are thinking/feeling.  Get in touch with your story for why you can’t say “No”.  Notice all those restrictions on yourself and notice that to just say “yes” with all those restrictions and stories swimming in your head is only giving from a place of victimhood.  It’s only providing an “I love you…” solution – there’s no care or concern for yourself in that answer which means there is no sustainable access to fulfillment in that answer.

 

Plus, if you think you can fool your boss into not hearing the cynicism in your “yes” you’re only fooling yourself.  So even in giving the boss what you think they want, you only created pain, separation and probably suffering – YOUR suffering.  So this is one way not to communicate!  Let’s try it again with another approach.

 

Next option…

 

You could say, (with a ‘sucks for you!’ tone)“Oh wow, sorry, yeah, I have other commitments evenings and weekends.  Hope you find someone else – good luck with that.”

 

Maybe you tell yourself, “I’ll take my licks for this – I don’t care.  This job sucks anyway.”  But how well do you think that will go over with your employer?  “I love me” approaches don’t often go over well with anyone in any situation.  Plus, they don’t offer you a life where you get to live and work with conscious energy that promotes a sense of fulfillment in your life! So this too is another way not to communicate!

 

You can work smarter not harder.  Here’s how…

 

introducing…. the “I love you AND I love me too” solution…

 

The first thing about this solution is that it cares – so, with a caring, professional, collaborative tone, you might say – “Thank you so much for offering me the opportunity to do the work.  I appreciate that you see my contributions as making a difference.  I have other commitments in the evenings and on the weekends – would it work for you if I worked flexible hours including some from home?  If not, I’d be happy to help you find someone who I think could do the work as well as I.  Do any of those options work for you?”

 

Or, if you don’t know what to say in the moment, you can say:  “I understand you need an answer right now, and what I can offer you is a not well thought out answer that doesn’t feel authentic or fair to me.  I don’t give those kinds of answers to people so I am either just going to have to say ‘no’ or you can give me more time to sort out my other evening/weekend commitments – which do you prefer?”

 

With either of these responses, you offer care, compassion, and options (bosses love options – the control to make final decisions),   AND you didn’t sacrifice what you wanted!

 

Not only that…

 

… you also demonstrated that you are responsible, and conveyed that you believe, that the boss believes, that you are valued as an employee.  You made you and your boss a team.  Most importantly, you indirectly conveyed that what you both wants matters to you and that energy becomes contagious.  Why do you think that becomes contagious?

 

Here’s a deep answer …

 

…because it’s a universal truth that we all matter.  It speaks to the higher self in the other person – it offers the opportunity for their higher self to surface.  Does this approach guarantee you will get what you want?

 

No.

 

What do you think matters more for you to connect with a sense of your confidence, power, and fulfillment…

 

  • unconsciously getting what you want from others all the time

 

or

 

  • consciously standing for yourself AND others and getting what you want most of the time and when it seems like you are not getting your way, you stay in trust that the Universe has something better for you in store than you initially had planned?

 

The latter is what living in working from conscious energy is all about.  The former is putting your confidence, power, and fulfillment in the hands of others – everything is fine AS LONG AS conditions around you are fine.  That’s not reliable or sustainable.

 

STEP #2 is powerful for your work and your life.  It’s applied beautifully even in impossible situations like asking my kids to do things.  Sometimes my husband will say to me “Why is it our son gives me 10 miles of attitude when I ask him to do something”?  I however, don’t have this reaction from our son – I attribute that to practicing the 3 steps.  It’s not that he doesn’t give me attitude sometimes too when I ask things like “Can you take the garbage out?”  He may rolls his eyes and say things like “I don’t wanna”, and  I say “I understand you want to do what you are doing and I don’t want to take you away from what you love to do, but can you pause that when you get a minute to help me out or let me know when else you can do it, or ask your sister if she can help me.  Do any of those options work for you to help me?”  

 

So imagine that you are the boss who asked you to take on extra work or my son who I asked to drop the Xbox controller and take out the trash…

 

…is there anything else you hear in the responses I suggest to the boss question or the way I suggest you request help with the trash?

Networking Tips from the Pros http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/networking-tips-from-the-pros http://pazoo.com/uncategorized/networking-tips-from-the-pros#comments Wed, 08 Mar 2017 07:00:10 +0000 http://www.susanascher.com/?p=2708

Networking can open a whole new world of possibilities and opportunities if you begin with the correct approach. For many people, however, it’s difficult to network effectively. This can be because of their introverted personalities, uncertainty about the process, or lack of knowledge of networking in general.

If you’re one of these people, there’s no need to worry. We’ve gathered information from professionals who network consistently and reap the benefits so you can learn some pointers from their experience. These tips can help you see more success, faster.

1. Don’t Keep Selling

As a business person, it’s downright instinctive for most of us to jump right into trying to sell ourselves to the other person. It seems even more natural if you’ve researched the individual ahead of time and discovered what a great fit they’d be for your needs.

The problem is, networking isn’t about selling. It’s about connecting. The people you’re building relationships with must be able to trust you in order to foster success and trust doesn’t come from being sold. Trust comes from seeing them as a person and searching for common ground before bringing your business into the relationship.

2. Remain Helpful

You should never outright expect something in return when you help others, but offering your assistance may benefit you in the long run. Even if they can’t help you directly, they’ll remember the effort you put forth. Chances are they’ll be more than willing to repay the kindness when you need it.

Staying helpful can also improve your reputation. As we said, networking means building a foundation of trust and respect. It’s much easier for others to place their faith in you when they know you can be counted on to help. And last but not least, helping others is satisfying and uplifting on a personal level.

3. Be Confident

Networking isn’t a task for the timid. Even if you’re introverted by nature, you need to be bold in some situations. Don’t worry about what could go wrong or negative feelings, but instead look forward to the benefits both of you will be able to enjoy.

4. Keep the Relationship Strong

Few things feel worse than putting forth the effort to start a relationship and then letting it fall apart shortly thereafter. Remember that networking connections require attention and dedication in order to work. It’s not enough just to meet them – you must remain consistent and engaged. Keep in touch through phone calls, emails, and in-person visits and always be willing to help them out.
