This week’s Wellness Wednesday advice is brought to you by Liz Sitko of Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association:

-Milk is a solid source of complete protein, the number one contributor to muscle growth.
-Milk’s unique protein profile is comprised of about 20% whey protein and 80% casein protein. Whey is a major muscle builder, and casein’s slow and even digestibility make it the perfect balance to whey. Since whey is quickly digested and used up ... Read More

While the Washington Redskins struck early and took a 7-3 lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter of Sunday’s season finale, they ultimately fell by a final of 44-17.
That early lead was the product of a 69-yard touchdown connection between quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Griffin III would finish the day 27-of-41 for a season-high 336 yards and his first rushing touchdown since Week 17 of the 2012 season, but he also had two costly turnovers in the red zone that stunted two separate drives.
Jackson, meanwhile, finished the day with 86 ... Read More

Exercise with Kettlebells
By: Barbara Kapas, DPT

Since the weight isn't evenly distributed, using a kettlebell forces your stabilizer muscles to work harder. A kettlebell workout is great for cardio, strength and flexibility training. According to the American Council on Exercise, exercising with kettlebells burns about 20 calories a minute.
