Aqua Spinning? hmmmm, interesting……………

photo credit AquaStudioNY Tribecca Website The idea of aqua spinning, alone, raises many questions: What does one wear to class? What is the temperature of the water? Do you sweat heavily? Is that sanitary? And these are all fair concerns about a workout routine that, until now, has been relatively under the radar and only […]

Lolo Jones: Overcoming Life’s “Hurdles” (Pun Intended)

Okay sports fans, Lolo Jones is beautiful…let's throw that out there and move on, so we can get down to business.

“Ballet….something pure in this crazy world” –Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland, 34 years young [in Sept 2016],  is an American ballet dancer….. …and is [though disputed] the first African American female soloist for the American Ballet Theater. Disputed because, lest they be forgotten, and reporting as a true historian, we have to make note of Anne Benna Sims and Nora Kimball (Nora is  Black/Asian)…… […]

Nike Training Club: Carmelita Jeter’s 15 minute HIT (High Intensity Training) Workout

I wrote about HIT (High Intensity Training) in a previous article called "Bulking Up vs. Slimming Down: When it comes to workouts, more is less and less is more". The theory, which seems to be catching on, is that the shorter and more intense routines put on muscle and get one more "cut" (think of […]

Body (Part 5), a.k.a., “She’s Strange”

The term "She's Strange" tried to take root back in the 1990's, as a compliment, when a guy would consider a woman different, eclectic, eccentric, out of the norm in style/personality/dress/hair and otherwise, sometimes excessively tattooed, but not "scary", and all in all still sexy and appealing for some "Strange" reason.

Girl Talk: Will lifting weights make a woman look too “masculine”?

….the short answer is no. The ridiculously "man looking" female bodybuilders are on steroids, "juicing" as they call it. There is no way the average woman could get that absurdly huge from only lifting weights. It is possible for a woman to find her arms, back, legs, or any body part getting more muscular than […]
