Rowan University's Sports Bra Ban for Athletes Was a Complete Debacle

How much exercise burns off a treat?Sports bras were banned briefly by Rowan University.Source:SuppliedTHE girls can run free after all.Rowan University is relenting on sports bras, clarifying its established verbal policy on the garments after a student-athlete in New Jersey criticised the school's policy that banned females from wearing them as shirts during games or practices."Rowan's Athletic Department has had a longstanding verbal protocol that all athletes must wear shirts, even during practices," the university's president, Ali Houshmand, said in a statement Friday. "The verbal policy was adopted as a matter of keeping a level of standards throughout its men's and women's programs."Houshmand said a recent explanation of the verbal policy to new staffers at the university led to a post written on Thursday by Gina Capone at The Odyssey Online, where she blasted Rowan's ban on female athletes wearing sports bras without a shirt."If you're running in a sports bra, then you must be asking for it, right?" Capone wrote. "Well, according to a football player at Rowan University, this is true. I'll have you know the real reason women run in sports bras, and it's not to show off our hard-earned abs. Women, whether they have a six-pack or not, run in sports bras because, quite frankly, it's hot outside."Capone said she and her teammates wear sports bras because their workouts are "demanding, challenging and vigorous" - and not at all as a way to show off their bodies to their male counterparts."Out of the 15 Rowan University Women Cross County athletes, all of them believe running in sports bras at practice should be allowed," Capone wrote. "Even the girls who don't partake in shirtless runs at practice still believe the other members of the team should be permitted to wear whatever they feel confident in."The ban on practising and competing while shirtless for male and female athletes was rooted in an "attempt to ," university spokesman Joe Cardona told the Cherry Hill Courier-Post.But Rowan will now develop a written policy that allows female athletes to wear sports bras without shirts during practices, according to Houshmand's statement."Rowan Athletics will continue to follow NCAA guidelines for uniforms during competition," the statement continued. "In the new formal policy, there will be no restriction of sports bras without shirts as practice apparel. The University recognises that while the verbal policy attempted to set standards, it could be misunderstood and does not accommodate today's training practices across sports."Capone also accused Rowan's athletic department of blocking the women's cross country team from practising on the university's track because it was "distracting to the football players" who were on the field at the same time."As if the women no longer being able to run in sports bras wasn't enough, now they're no longer allowed to run on the track, period," Capone wrote. "The girls are now mandated to run on the local high school track on workout days."The university, meanwhile, disputed Capone's allegation in a separate statement, saying she simply misspoke. University policy only allows one team to use a practice facility at any given time, according to the statement."During the fall, in football season, the Cross Country team's designated practice time to use the sports stadium is after the football team uses the facility," the statement read. "Preferring not to schedule practice later in the day, the Cross Country coach has historically made alternate plans for the team to use Glassboro High School's track, which is directly across the street from Rowan's stadium."Rowan's cross country team recently found the Glassboro High School facility unexpectedly locked, prompting the team to practice at the university's football stadium while the team was still there.Capone, meanwhile, said the policy change is a "step in the right direction" but remains disappointed that the track team must revolve its practice schedule around that of the football team."The purpose of my article was not intended to make Rowan University look bad," Capone told the Courier-Post. "I wanted to shed light on the fact that the Athletics Department is being unfair ... I hope that this can raise awareness and give other women courage to stand up for what they believe in."

Geithner Family Seeks Investing Nirvana in Yoga Retailer
Government officials often avoid conflicts between professional obligations and personal finances by divesting company stocks from their portfolios.So it comes as a surprise that, along with the standard mutual funds, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner owns a small amount of stock in yoga clothing retailer Lululemon Athletica Inc., Bloomberg BusinessWeek reports in its Nov. 15 issue.The Vancouver, British Columbia-based company has attained almost cult-like status with urban women who carry Lululemon's reusable tote bags and assume the lotus position in its pricey workout clothes. The firm sells, for example, the $58 "Ta Ta Tamer" sports bra and the $98 "Groove" pants.The Treasury secretary, a runner and basketball player, has never been known for wearing spandex. Turns out he purchased less than $1,000 worth of shares a few years ago to teach his two children about the stock market, press aide Steve Adamske says.Geithner picked the company partly because of his now college-age daughter's interest in yoga -- and as a hedge against her frequent Lululemon purchases, Adamske says.Additionally, Geithner owns $1,000 to $15,000 worth of International Business Machines Corp. stock, which he inherited. (Disclosure forms give values in broad ranges only.)The Geithners have potential as stock pickers: Since Lululemon's July2007 initial public offering, the company has posted a 165percent return. The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index, meanwhile, lost 20percent in the same period.Still, it hasn't been an easy few years for the retailer, whose share price has fluctuated since the purchase, providing fodder for the family lesson plan.Like most high-end retailers, Lululemon was hit by the financial crisis and the slowdown in consumer spending. The company's stock trailed the S&P from September2008 to September 2009, when it took off. This year it's up 59percent.Says Edward Yruma, an analyst at KeyBanc Capital Markets in New York: "This is good stock to own."Geithner might want to incorporate some of Lululemon's quirky culture into the kids' lessons.Emblazoned across its shopping bags are manifestos like: "Friends are more important than money."Here's one the chief U.S. economic policy maker may want to avoid: "Do one thing a day that scares you."
The NFLs Forgotten Retirees
On his daughter Christines 18th birthday in 2005, Tom Baugh calmly sat down with her, his wife and his second daughter, and told them he wanted to kill himself.It was the nadir of Baughs rapid descent into depression. I was ready to die. And willing, Baugh says. For most of his life, Baugh was calm, grounded and successful first as a professional football player for the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions, and later as a high school football coach, educator and entrepreneur. NFL players are notorious for going broke after leaving the league, but Baugh flourished after his retirement from football in 1990. He returned to his hometown of Riverside, Illinois, where he taught shop and coached football at his high school alma mater. He started exercising regularly and dropped 50 pounds to reach 247, the lightest he had been since high school. He had two daughters with his high school sweetheart, Jeannie, and in 1998 moved with his family to a five-acre rural estate outside Kansas City the city he and Jeannie had fallen in love with when he played for the Chiefs. There, he took a job at a construction firm and eventually became its owner.But everything changed in 2004. Baugh suddenly grew irritable, lashing out at his family for the smallest infractions. Hed berate his daughters if they arrived somewhere five minutes late. He once found a high utility bill and pounded the kitchen table, screaming, We dont need this kind of shit! If the phone rang unexpectedly, hed respond by whipping the nearest object against the wall. After an outburst, he would isolate himself somewhere dark and quiet in the workshop in his barn, where he worked at carpentry and metallurgy; or in the basement of the house, where he would sit in his rocking chair, thinking of a way to escape his family. I didnt like outside, he says. The birds, the wind too much stimulus.Baughs decline is archetypal for NFL players of his era men who had their bodies break down on the field, only to have their minds crumble after they left it. More than a decades worth of neurological research on former NFL players has drawn a near-irrefutable link between brain injuries suffered playing football and subsequent cognitive decline. Even the NFL, whose doctors spent the better part of the 2000s arrogantly dismissing such a connection, has reluctantly acknowledged that the violence of the game results in the mental deterioration of its players.Several illnesses have garnered attention, most notably chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease that can result in aggression, memory loss and suicide. Evidence of CTE has been found in more than 95 percent of the brains of NFL players studied posthumously. Meanwhile, NFL retirees report abnormally high rates of Alzheimers, dementia, Parkinsons and ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease). The connection between football and neurological disease has been the subject of a flood of news stories, two documentaries, a book, a Congressional hearing and, most recently, the Hollywood film Concussion. Currently, the NFL is trying to finalize an out-of-court settlement with former players suffering from certain neurological diseases, a payout estimated at $1 billion.Doctors attribute Baughs mental problems to the countless head injuries he suffered as a player, but he stands to earn nothing from the settlement. He shows no signs of ALS, he has not been formally diagnosed with Alzheimers or Parkinsons, and its impossible to know if he has CTE. Baugh has been diagnosed with a lesser-known condition called hypopituitarism, making him one of thousands of former players who suffer from brain damage but will not be compensated by the leagues settlement. And his story suggests that at least one team in the NFL was concerned about the long-term effects of brain trauma on football players as far back as 1990, 19 years before the NFL acknowledged any link existed.In 2009, Baugh was contacted by a team of medical researchers led by Dr. Daniel Kelly a neurosurgeon at Providence Saint Johns Health Center in Santa Monica, California about participating in a study on hypopituitarism among NFL retirees. The pituitary gland regulates production of testosterone and human growth hormone (among other hormones). When those levels decline, depression, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, fatigue and anxiety often follow. In general, people with low growth hormone tend to feel worse, says Garni Barkhoudarian, a neuroscientist on Kellys team and co-author on the study. They just say, I feel lousy.Pre-existing research showed pituitary dysfunction occurred in 20 to 40 percent of people who had suffered moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (typically in car accidents), so the researchers figured the same would be true for NFL retirees. A force of 100 Gs (i.e., 100 times the force of gravity) is enough to cause a concussion; 130 Gs is the equivalent of a severe car accident. The average NFL tackle generates 30 to 60 Gs of force, with the hardest collisions measuring 150 Gs more than enough to ravage delicate parts of the brain. The pituitary gland is at some risk compared to the rest of the brain because its kind of tethered in its own little area, Barkhoudarian says. Some of the brain moves in an injury, but the pituitary does not. The gland can get sheared off the brain or the blood supply can get damaged or it can bleed inside the gland.Baugh was an ideal candidate for the study: He had the symptoms, and he had suffered many concussions over the course of his football career, not to mention innumerable subconcussive hits. The team recruited another 429 players from a database of retired athletes and ended up studying 68 of them, including Baugh. The study painted retired NFL players as overweight, depressed and impotent as it reported high rates of obesity, lethargy, erectile dysfunction and an overall poor quality of life. In all, 41.2 percent of the subjects were deficient in growth hormone, a sign of hypopituitarism. Adjusted for body mass index, 23.5 percent had hypopituitarism rates comparable to those found among ordinary brain trauma patients.But the researchers were surprised to learn the participants with hypopituitarism did not report having suffered more concussions than those with normal hormone levels. At first glance, this might seem to indicate football doesnt increase the risk of hypopituitarism, but it actually suggests an even more alarming conclusion: If the high rate of hypopituitarism cant be attributed to concussions, then it could be due to the accumulation of minor impacts from safe and routine hits over the course of a career. These subconcussive hits are so subtle players might not experience symptoms at the time, according to Barkhoudarian. It is possible that multiple subconcussive impacts sustained over a long career could lead to eventual hormonal dysfunction, he and his collaborators theorized when the study was published in the Journal of Neurotrauma in July 2014.Similar studies have connected hormone dysfunction and pituitary dysfunction to combat sports such as boxing, kickboxing and MMA; explosive blasts survived by soldiers; and non-sport-related injuries. While the study wasnt the first to draw a link between subconcussive hits and brain disease, it was the first to connect it to pituitary dysfunction. I suspect there are lots of people out there with post-concussion syndrome people who participated in contact and collision sports but what they really have is significant but untreated hypopituitarism, says Vernon Williams, a sports neurologist in Los Angeles. Hypopituitarism related to sports concussion is almost a silent epidemic.Baughs concussion history coincided with his introduction to football his first occurred during his freshman year of high school. I played the whole game but dont remember any of it. I just woke up after the game in the locker room with my uniform still on. The coach came in to turn off the lights and I was the only one left. He asked me what was wrong, and I asked him who won the game. He told me I probably had a concussion, but I should probably be all right.He went on to play center at Southern Illinois University, where he once suffered a concussion so severe the symptoms lasted for three weeks. Youre in a fog. You dont even know what youre doing, Baugh says of being concussed. Youre there, youre existing, youre living but youre not making conscious decisions. Youre just acting out habit or whatever. Jeannie remembers Baugh being so dazed after the hit that he nearly stepped in front of an oncoming train. We had a train track in town, and we had to sometimes cross to get to our classes, she says. And the bell would be ringing and hed be crossing just oblivious to a train coming.Baughs play, though, was unaffected he was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth round of the 1986 draft, exceptional for a player from a Division I-AA school.In all, Baugh remembers 15 times over the span of his football career (high school and college included) when a hit left him with severe dizziness or some degree of amnesia telltale signs of a concussion. Like many players from his era, Baugh felt pressured to play through these injuries, as he described in a journal entry about his time with the Chiefs:Head injuries are scary when you get them but there is no sympathy in the NFL. A seemingly wimpy thing like a concussion that goes away after a short while (Ive had some last 3 days) simply isnt valid reason to be left off the hook. In fact you would probably be released from the team if you admitted to having them. So nobody admitted it. We just carried on as if it was a hangnail. I bet I played maybe 25% of my NFL plays in an altered state from concussion. All sic.Baughs last concussion came in the summer of 1990. After three years with the Chiefs, Baugh spent a disappointing season with the Cleveland Browns before getting cut just before the start of the 1990 season. The Detroit Lions quickly signed Baugh off waivers, and he reported to Lions training camp in July. There he underwent the standard physical for new players, and his only health concern at the time was the tendonitis in his right knee. They bend every finger, joint, knee, ankle, Baugh says, but they mostly neglect one major organ: They didnt give you a brain physical. The extent of the Lions brain injury assessment was a single line on a one-page questionnaire asking if Baugh had suffered any previous concussions. He reported having had four in college, and the Lions cleared him to play.Baugh was thrilled. Im pretty excited about going to Detroit, mostly because Im getting out of Cleveland but also because I have another shot at another year of big money, Baugh wrote in his diary on July 16, 1990. Who knows, maybe it will turn into a job that lasts for years? I hope so because I know that Im better than many of the centers in the NFL.Less than a month later, he was out of the league for good.Baugh doesnt remember the hit that ended his career. All he knows is that it happened on August 9, 1990, during the Lions first preseason game against the Houston Oilers. I realize there was a game, and I realize I was in it. When the concussion happened or how it happened, I dont remember. According to the Lions medical file on Baugh, which Baugh provided for this story, the Lions head trainer, Kent Falb, recorded Baugh was experiencing mild retro-grade sic amnesia in the fourth quarter and allowed him to continue playing. After the game, Falb wrote Baugh was negative for concussion symptoms and pledged to reassess him the following day. But Baugh says the follow-up never took place.Two days later, Baugh reported to the Lions training facility, where he says he was confronted by a Lions employee he had never seen before. Some young kid came up to me and said, Here, they want you to sign this, Baugh recollects. He read the document, and was puzzled by one line in particular: The Detroit Lions will no longer be liable for my head injuries. I said, What does this mean? If Im in a coma on the 50-yard line my wifes gotta pick me up, or what? And the kid didnt know anything about it. He kinda shrugged his shoulders, and I said, Im not signing this.At that, the employee presented a second document, Baugh claims. It was a letter detailing his release. Baugh says he signed it, ending his tenure with the Lions.I might be more damaged than even I want to admit, at least I didnt sign my head away, reads Baughs journal entry from that day.After the Lions released Baugh, Falb entered the following into Baughs medical file emphasis added:This player was released from the Detroit Lions at 9:00AM on this date. The player had received a blow to his head in the ball game on 89 with some retrograde amnesia. Post game the player was asymptomatic with normal vision and no headache reported. Player was not seen for any reason on 810 which was the players day off.Therefore, when the player was terminated he was, to the best of our knowledge, asymptomatic. He was suffering from no other known or reported physical injuries or medical problems and was fully capable of participation in professional football. All sic.If true, the Lions actions were incongruous: The waiver implies the team was not only worried about the long-term effects of Baughs brain injuries, but actively tried to shield itself against potential damages. Meanwhile the Lions training staff was prepared to rule Baugh safe to play (just as long as the team wouldnt be held responsible for any head injuries he might suffer). That is, the Lions deemed Baugh healthy even though their actions suggest they knew his brain was at some risk.Falb declined to answer any questions about Baughs version of events, saying he didnt want to rehash an event from more than 25 years ago. The NFL did not return repeated requests for comment, and the Lions say they are not permitted to discuss the matter due to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which bars the organization from sharing its employees medical information.Baugh says he was given a copy of his medical record upon release, but he did not hold onto the waiver. If I had those documents today, Id be a multimillionaire, he says.As its currently structured, the NFLs out-of-court settlement will only compensate players who suffer from, or end up developing, the following neurological diseases: ALS, Alzheimers, dementia, Parkinsons and some forms of CTE. Players are eligible for up to $5 million depending on the severity of their medical issues. The younger a player is diagnosed, and the more severe his impairment, the more he is entitled to, with the highest payouts going to the estates of young retirees whose autopsies reveal signs of CTE. But lost amid the ongoing legal, medical and cultural controversy are players such as Baugh, whose lives have been devastated by less-severe brain diseases, but who will not be compensated at all by the league.The settlement is binary, according to a former NFL player who wishes to remain nameless. Players either have a major neurological condition and qualify for compensation, or theyre left out entirely.That player is one of 220 who have opted out of the class action, thereby reserving the right to sue the league as individuals and seek compensation for less-severe brain injuries. The Brain Injury Association of America denounced the settlement in August in an amicus brief that says the settlement neither recognizes nor compensates the majority of players suffering long-term consequences of brain trauma. Meanwhile, about 90 players in the class action have appealed the settlement with the hope of making the compensation requirements less narrow.Kimberly Archie, co-founder of Child Athlete Advocates, a sports injury awareness group, calls players such as Baugh the invisible group. They dont fit into one of the categories listed in the settlement, she says, but they suffer from a slew of diseases tied to brain trauma, including sleep apnea, seizure disorders, frequent migraines and pituitary dysfunction.Former NFL linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo hasnt opted out of the class action but criticized the terms of the settlement. Theres definitely always more the NFL can do, Ayanbadejo says. How do you figure out something to help anybody and everybody that played in the league with whatever their problems are?Baugh opted out of the litigation, too, and he has no intention of suing the NFL as an individual, given the cost. The class action is a farce. Theres no settlement for any of my issues. Why would you stay in if there are no benefits?If Baugh were to sue, his story could have a significant impact on the class action deliberations, according to William Gibbs, a partner at Chicago law firm Corboy & Demetrio. The firm is representing several former NFL players in the class action suit, including the estate of Dave Duerson, the Chicago Bears safety who asked his family to donate his brain to CTE research before taking his own life in February 2011. (Three months after Duersons death, doctors found indisputable evidence of the disease in his brain tissue.)A team requesting a player waive his right to pursue a claim of any kind would and should be looked into, Gibbs says of the Lions purported actions. Particularly if its a team implicitly acknowledging long-term ramifications of head trauma at a time when others might have disputed it.Today, Baughs condition has improved since his 2005 low. He lashes out less and is more sociable, his wife says, but he has trouble maintaining his train of thought and is often confused and frustrated. Hell get excited about an article hes read, but will be unable to remember its contents moments later. Hell try to do some woodwork in his shop, but hell take the boards to the construction site and theyll be the wrong size. Hell start on a house project, get sidetracked and never finish it.Baugh experimented with a host of antidepressants after admitting to suicidal thoughts, eventually settling on Zoloft. Its just one part of the cocktail of drugs he ingests, including Adderall (for focus), testosterone and human growth hormone (for his hypopituitarism), pills for his underactive thyroid, two allergy prescriptions and a gout medication. I sound like Im 90, Baugh says of his drug intake. Thing is, if you dont take them, youre friggin going off the deep end, yknow?Worse, the thought of suicide lingers. In death, Baugh might be diagnosed with CTE; only then would the NFL compensate him. These guys and their families, some of them are potentially getting $5 million, Baugh says. I would die today for that.John McDermott is a staff writer at MEL.

Kelly Brook is never one to shy away from a chance to show off her range of talents.And on the latest episode of her US sitcom One Big Happy, the British beauty has done it once again - this time, displaying her impressive flexibility... and famous curves.In a scene with her co-star and on-screen partner Nick Zano, the 35-year-old is seen laying on an exercise mat while she gets given a good leg stretch.Scroll down for videoHowever, although it's clearly a comedy scene, the model and actress can't help but look sexy with her ample cleavage on display under her tight-fitting sports bra.Staying true to form, the star continues to flaunt her famous curves while in character on the show, her on-screen persona apparently a huge fan of the colour purple.Kelly's Prudence is involved in a bit of a menage a trois between her Zano's character Luke and their co-star Elisha Cuthbert's character Lizzy: the latter two have a baby together in the midst of Prudence and Luke's budding romance.And although the Ellen DeGeneres-produced show, which has just aired its third episode, has not received the best reviews, ambitious Kelly has spoken out about how she worked hard to prove her doubters wrongSpeaking to the Daily Star,she said: 'I had a lot of knocks and there were people who didn't appreciate my ambition and looked down on me.She continued: 'I've always tried to keep going and not listen to those who attempted to put me down. There were a lot of non-believers'.The former Big Breakfast presenter has now reached the level of success which she has been working towards and she couldn't help but admit her joy about that fact.The actress added: 'All I ever wanted was to be on American TV and I've achieved that. It feels nice to finally get there but how long I'll stay there I don't know.

Cheerleading: Um Esporte Em Ascenso
Por: Maria Luisa RodriguesComeam a gritar E 1, 2, 3, 4. A partir da, a emoo e o nervosismo tomam conta do corpo todo. Mas no momento para distraes. A estudante Isabela Ono, do time Explosivas da Unesp Botucatu, estava estressada por causa da falta de tempo para ensaios. Afinal, a coreografia s ficou pronta dois dias antes da ida para os jogos. Sendo sua primeira vez no time, a insegurana e o medo de cair surgiu de repente, mas veio aterrorizante. Por ser Flyer- membro que fica no topo da pirmide-, tinha uma grande responsabilidade, mas precisava confiar no seu grupo. E 1, 2, 3, 4, o mix de msicas se inicia. Mesmo no tendo muita torcida no auditrio, nem a presena da bateria da faculdade, j que no mesmo horrio estava tendo o duelo de baterias, a experincia foi nica. Marcante na vida pessoal e na vida de atleta.O Cheerleading, apesar da traduo para Lderes de torcida no se limita a apenas torcer por algo ou algum, tambm uma atividade fsica e um esporte competitivo, baseado em rotinas organizadas, com componentes de elevaes, danas, saltos, torcida, entre outros. desafiador e dinmico ao exigir prtica e dedicao. Um praticante desenvolve habilidades importantes como o trabalho em equipe, fora, flexibilidade e ritmo.Os treinos de horas por vrias vezes na semana, somados aos treinos extras, garantem a coleo de hematomas e cartelas de relaxantes musculares. Todo esse trabalho avaliado em 5 minutos. Minutos estes em que toda a coreografia e acrobacia, estudada e analisada minuciosamente por meses, julgada na competio. Mas apesar da inquietao, s de poder disputar como uma categoria oficial nos Jogos Universitrios j uma vitria.As cheerleaders ou animadoras de torcida, depois de inmeras edies dos jogos universitrios, finalmente esto ganhando espao. O que antes era visto apenas como uma atrao a mais nos intervalos, hoje considerado uma modalidade nesses eventos esportivos. Meninas e meninos comeam do zero e formam toda uma estrutura para poder competir igualmente aos outros esportes.As ExplosivasIsabela Ono, de 19 anos, estudante de Biomedicina, entrou para o time cheer da universidade, as Explosivas, logo em seu primeiro ano como caloura. Diz que entrou pela experincia e por achar os vdeos feitos muito impactantes. Ela j praticava ginstica e bal desde criana, e em Botucatu, descobriu esse esporte como uma linha prxima ao qual treinava.O grupo do qual faz parte, foi criado no mximo h dois anos. Em comparao com outros campi, como o de Rio Claro, o de Botucatu o mais recente e inexperiente. Mas mesmo assim j compete como esporte oficial, inclusive a estudante diz que ano passado at pagamos com o pacote atleta. O grupo compete e participa de colocaes diante a competio com outros. Um triunfo para esse esporte que ainda sofre preconceito. Inclusive, em muitos outros jogos universitrios, o cheer ainda visto apenas como um atrativo, como na Faculdade Csper Lbero. As Red Birds, presentes no JUCA, estreiaram em apenas trs jogos, elas e os outros cheers ainda lutam para se tornar uma categoria competitiva.Enquanto os jogos no comeam, as Explosivas treinam duas vezes por semana por muitas horas. No tm lugar fixo para praticarem, por isso dependem de quadras disponveis ou do gramado do lado dos ginsios. Elas bancam os prprios instrumentos com uma mensalidade de 30 reais. No preciso ter experincia prvia, muitas meninas entram sem saber nada da parte tcnica, diz Ono. O cheer sobre compartilhar e ensinar.E que comecem os Jogos em setembro que os jogos se iniciam. Por isso, uns meses antes, as Explosivas comeam a montar efetivamente a coreografia e juntar tudo o que aprenderam at agora. A treinadora, Marina, antecipa os passos que o grupo ir seguir, mas ela tambm depende de todo time para compartilhar ideias e elaborar coreografias inovadoras.Agora, os dos dois treinos se adicionam aos extras sempre que for possvel conciliar os horrios das 12 integrantes. Alm da parte bsica aprendida no comeo do ano, como entender termos, saber posies e conhecer sobre os regimentos nos jogos, o grupo comea a praticar a parte funcional, ou seja, o fsico, como revela Isabela.

10 Common Mistakes Women Make While Buying a Bra
Many women overlook the importance of buying the right bra for themselves. They walk into a store and check out the variety of designs and styles available for them. What they fail to realize is that bra buying is more than the style, lace, underwire, pads, material, etc. It has to be done with awareness and knowledge. Experts in women's health point out that buying a bra is not as simple as it seems. Women tend to make a lot of mistakes when it comes to buying the right bra for themselves. This post will look at the prime mistakes that women make when it comes to buying underwear and getting the right fit and comfort for their bras. What are the common mistakes women make while buying their bra?The following are the common mistakes women make while buying a new bra-1.Cup Size- Most women do not even know it, but the bra they are wearing now might be of the wrong size. The cup of the bra should contain the whole breast tissue, and there should be no bulges or spillage. You should also check the sizes of your armpits when you are wearing your bra. Make sure everything is inside, and there are spills.2.Are you wearing the right band size? Check the band size with two fingers of your hand between the band of the bra and your back. You should be able to slip two fingers underneath the band and your back. In case, you cannot slide two fingers between the back and the band; you are wearing a bra that is too tight. If your fingers easily slide between the back and the band and there is still some space remaining, your bra is too loose.3.A sports bra is not a one-size bra that fits everyone- Note, sports bra does not mean that it is a one-sized bra that fits everyone. You must take the correct measurements here as well if you wish to sport a sports bra for daily or gym wear. Take the time to visit a store and ask a skilled professional to help you out so that you get the right size for your body type. 4.Fitting does not mean the tightest clasp- When you are buying a bra, a good fit does not mean the tightest clasp. When you are testing a new bra before you buy it, go into the dressing room and fasten the clasp that is the farthest. It should give you the right fit. With time, your bra will become loose, and this is when the tightest clasp needs to be used for getting the fit and comfort you deserve.5.Choosing the same size from every store or brand you visit- Most women make the mistake of choosing the same size from every store or brand they visit. You should note that the size of every store or brand is not the same. This means when you walk into a different store or buying a bra from a different brand check the bra size guide. This guide will give you an insight into the right size that will fit you. In case, you have confusions, talk to the sales staff of the store to help you get the right fit and comfort. 6.Check the straps of the bra- Never invest in a bra that has a strap that is too tight or too loose. You should try on the bra and adjust the strap to check the bra. Your breasts should stay in the middle of the shoulder and elbow. In case, after adjusting the straps of your bra, the breasts sag, you need to change and get the right size. For women that have very large busts, it is prudent to get a bra strap that has a wide strap. These wide straps will hold your breasts firmly, and you get the support you need.7.Get the right clothes for your bra- Remember, your bra is not a standalone piece of clothing and so you need to buy the right clothes for it too. Make sure that you buy the right bra for the clothes you have in your wardrobe. So, when you are wearing a high collared top or loose- fitting clothes, ensure that you have the right bra for the dress or top. 8.Seamless bras- When it comes to seamless bras, it is prudent not to wear them every day. Seamless bras do look good under your tops however the seams in the bra give shape and support to the breast tissue. Choose them for occasional wear and not daily wear. 9.Check the underwire quality- No one likes to buy a bra with underwire that pokes or protrudes the skin. They do not make you feel comfortable. If the metal of the bra brutally stabs into your skin, this means you have purchased a bra with small cup size. Immediately change it and get into a bra that is soft and more comfortable.10.Do not wear a bra for more than two days- Yes, hygiene is a factor, and you should not wear a bra for more than two days. If you wear the same bra for two days, you will compromise on its elasticity.Therefore, when you are investing in a bra, make sure you do not commit the above mistakes while shopping for a new bra. In case of weight gain and weight loss, you should always measure yourself again. The bra should have the right fit so that it feels comfortable and gives your breasts the support you need. Buy bras from good quality stores. When you are buying bras from online websites, check the terms and conditions for exchange and refunds in case you need to return it back because of the size. Remember to change your bra daily and discard bras that are old and have loose straps. Replace them with new ones that provide you with the right support and fit!
How to Boost Creativity with Endurance Sports
The clich of the mentally working human being cannot be eradicated: Creatives are spiritualized, worldly and little body-conscious. Unfortunately, the last point is often correct. Writers, artists, programmers, and representatives of other creative professions usually prefer to sit at their desks rather than do physical work.Physical activity does not mean an inspiring walk in the woods, but real sport and especially endurance sports. These people, who are primarily dependent on their cognitive abilities, particularly benefit from the positive effects of endurance sports, of which jogging is undoubtedly the most effective.What the brain needs glucose and oxygen are fuel for the brainOur brain makes us who we are. Evolution has produced the human brain, one of the most complex structures in the universe. Each of us has an organ with his brain that is many times more powerful than the most modern supercomputer.Such a miracle needs energy, of course. Given its small size in relation to body weight (approx. 2%), it sounds incredible at first that it consumes no less than 20% of the total available energy. The brain derives this energy primarily from glucose. To convert glucose into energy, oxygen is again necessary.Did you find that 20% of the available energy is already very much? Then it will amaze you that our brain consumes even 40% of the available oxygen! To make it clear:, 4 out of 10 breaths are only there to keep your brain functioning.What Endurance Sports Do The Secret of CapillarizationWhat actually happens in the body when you start doing endurance sports? What changes are going on that will allow us to keep running longer and longer the better we train?Actually, its straightforward: The body adapts. But what does it adapt to? Well, if youve ever run out of breath during a race, you can basically imagine that. The body adjusts to the increased oxygen demand under stress. The pure absorption of oxygen is not a problem. We breathe all the time, and if we exert ourselves, we breathe faster.But no matter how fast we breathe: from a certain level of stress we reach our limits, and these limits cannot be compensated by an increased breathing rate.Why is that? The problem is not to get enough oxygen into the body from outside, but to distribute the inhaled oxygen efficiently. The oxygen is distributed through the bloodstream, and this is precisely where the effect of endurance sports begins.To supply the muscles with sufficient oxygen and to keep them functioning longer, the body increasingly forms tiny veins (capillaries) in the muscles. This provides for a stronger blood circulation of the stressed muscles and thus for better oxygen supply.Of course, the brain must now be supplied with blood better and more effectively, as more oxygen and glucose are required by the muscles during heavy physical exertion. This has the same effect on the brain as it does on the muscles it does not tire as quickly and remains efficient for longer.How does this increase creativity?Creativity is a specifically human brain performance. The definition of creativity should not be our topic here. The ability to use existing information by recombination to solve new problems and the like is interesting and worthy of consideration elsewhere. But the most important insight is that creativity is a brain achievement.As we have shown above, endurance sports increase and optimize the brains energy supply and thus its potential performance in all areas. Of course, this also influences our ability to think creatively.It is often assumed that creativity can be improved primarily through the application of various creativity techniques and methods of thinking. Of course, these methods have their justification, but let us ask ourselves the question: Who profits more from such techniques? Someone with an average brain or someone who has a more powerful brain due to endurance sports?You see? Lets go: Running shoes on and out in the fresh air!.·RELATED QUESTIONAre sports bras not supportive?carrying events bras are passable to placed on they do no longer look going to motive you to sag anymore than a typical bra. classic or workouts bra they are each and every for help yet a workouts bra holds you in tighter
