  • Monday Morning Water Cooler: Missed Opportunities

    By Brian Tinsman

    Football games usually boil down to taking advantage of opportunities that are presented to a team. Those opportunities may be obvious on the stat sheet, or they may only be apparent on film, but they’re almost always there.

    Yesterday, the Redskins had opportunities to take the early lead and weren’t able to capitalize. The defense kept them in the game until late, but a failed opportunity at the start of the fourth quarter sealed it for the Redskins.

    With 12 minutes left in the game, the Redskins had driven down to the Dolphins ... Read More

  • The Great Weight Debate: Free Weights vs. Machines

    Wondering which one is better? WOW's contributing personal trainer, Becky Johnson, reveals the good and the bad that come with each exercise method.

    When it comes to strength training, there has been much discussion and debate over which method is more effective: machine-based exercises or the use of free weights (dumbbell exercises.) The reality is each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    As a trainer, I like to incorporate a variety of equipment in my client’s strength training programs. One size does not necessarily fit all. The choice depends on your level of experience, your exercise ... Read More

  • Too Much of a Good Thing: Portion Control Part Two

    11.08.2011 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    I often hear from my clients, “I eat healthy foods yet I can’t seem to lose weight, I don't understand why.” One of the most common reasons is they are consuming too much of a good thing!

    Portion control is key when it comes to managing one’s weight.

    The "Food Record" is the most powerful tool when it comes to weight control. Click here to see my previous blog on keeping a food record.

    Two important pieces of information your food records will reveal:

    1. Non-hunger eating
    2. Beyond-fullness eating

    In both cases you are ... Read More

  • Monday Morning Water Cooler: Ups and Downs of Youth

    When the Redskins announced their youth movement out of training camp, it wasn’t really that profound of a statement. Yes, the team would have a lot of younger players on the roster, but the core group of starters had plenty of experience, especially on offense.

    Halfway through the season, injuries and performance have forced changes to the starting lineups, and the result is a much different—much younger—Redskins lineup.

    Yesterday marked the first career starts of running back Roy Helu and offensive guard Maurice Hurt. It was the second career start of receiver Leonard ... Read More
