    Around The Water Cooler: Redskins Lose To Giants, 27-23

    The Washington Redskins yesterday were one minute and 13 seconds away from escaping with a thrilling, last-minute win over the defending Super Bowl champions. But New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning had other plans, and his 77-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Victor Cruz provided the dagger in the Redskins’ 27-23 loss to the Giants in front of 81,352 fans at MetLife Stadium.

    Had it not been for Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III’s heroics just more than one minute prior to that Giants touchdown, however, Washington would’ve ... Read More

    I have been home sick with a high fever for the past two days, and for the second day in a row I’ve had to cancel my training clients’ appointments. I feel really bad about doing that but I know I can’t go to the gym and infect them with strep throat! My clients are great and I love them all. They make the time to put their health and fitness a priority in their lives. They make appointments to train and they keep them because they know ... Read More

  • Around The Water Cooler: Redskins Defeat Vikings, 38-26

    10.15.2012 / Blog Posts Redskins

    Andrew Walker

    It took a quarter for the Washington Redskins to get things going yesterday against the Minnesota Vikings, but once they hit the gas pedal, they never let up. The Redskins defeated the Vikings 38-26 to earn their first home win at FedExField since last September.

    There were many key plays throughout the game for the Redskins (3-3), and the team’s offense, defense and special teams all played a huge part. But there was one particularly electrifying play that sealed the win for Washington and sent the 78,000-plus in attendance at FedExField into pandemonium.

    The Vikings (4-2 ... Read More

  • Veggies Trending on the Red Carpet: Kale

    10.12.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Jane Jakubczak MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN; Washington Redskins Team Dietitian

    Do you have a food item that whenever you hear the name, see it in the store or advertisement say to yourself, “I really need to eat more of that."

    For me, that is a vegetable called kale.

    What a surprise it was when I opened my morning paper last week and saw the article Kale: Yes, it’s good for you, but don’t overdo it by Carolyn Butler (Washington Post 9/25/12). Was this a hint?

    As a Registered Dietitian, I have been taught from my early ... Read More

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    10.11.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Sarah Pettrone, MD; Commonwealth Orthopaedics

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is essentially a pinched nerve in the wrist. It is the most common nerve problem in the upper extremity. Women are affected more frequently than men. The cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve is the nerve that supplies sensation to the thumb, index, middle and half of the ring finger.

    Certain medical conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism and pregnancy predispose patients to developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Although it has been extensively researched, there has never been any solid evidence linking heavy ... Read More

    Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer (ACE); IBNFC Certified Nutrition Coach

    Last week, we talked about renewing, reorganizing and re-prioritizing our fitness lives. This week, I want to focus on what to do during that time you scheduled for yourself! 

    Enter: Tabata training. Once you stick with it and see results you will thank me, trust me.

    What is Tabata training?

    Tabata training is an interval training protocol that only lasts four minutes but creates huge EPOC – excess post oxygen consumption, which means your body continues to burn calories well after the workout is over. The timing of tabata offers negative ... Read More
