Barre fitness workouts provide all-over strengthening, toning

But do you want to run a certain time in a 5k, half marathon, or 10k? Do you want to run your first marathon? Now your goals aren't just about health-they're about performance. You're not running anymore, you're training. Runners who never do any faster workouts will hit a plateau and get stuck in a rut with the same race times. <br>Source:

Two years ago, the NCAA passed a rule that allowed players to participate in limited individual summer workouts with coaches -- no more than eight hours a week, for no more than eight (non-consecutive) weeks -- provided they were enrolled in summer school at the time. This put the entire summer in play, but it made August more important than ever -- a natural head start for freshmen, a ramp-up for upperclassmen. All of which may or may not be helpful clarification for this rather fun video DePaul posted on YouTube Wednesday: Watching that and not knowing any better, you could assume that DePaul basketball was merely goofing off on another slow August day. Instead, the volleyball was a reprieve, and a surprise one at that; the Blue Demons went to the beach assuming they were in for another sand-stuck conditioning regimen. Sand hurts, and trainer Mac Calloway frequently utilizes that fact to his advantage. But coach Oliver Purnell proved merciful, and let his guys enjoy a little casual competition instead. <br>Source:

"It'll get better," class regular Morgan Williamson, told me as she was leaving, noticing and understanding my fatigue. "It's still hard, but the next class will be easier than your first." I intend to go back. With a bigger towel and more water. And a fresh pedicure. Contact Irene Maher at Barre hopping Here are some local barre fitness classes. <br>Source:

-- LSU's August camp graduates Friday from the limited contact portion -- four days where the NCAA does not allow full contact -- to the first day of full pads Friday morning. Limiting contact theoretically should limit injuries. But for the Tigers that hasn't been the case. LSU suffered what appears to be its second major injury of camp Wednesday when, according to several reports, offensive guard Josh Williford was knocked out with his second concussion in 10 months. This one might be career-threatening. Nelson Chenault/USA TODAY Sports Trai Turner might find more playing time with Josh Williford going down with another concussion. <br>Source:
