  • Manjanique Alexander Talks Gameday, Life with Redskins Linebacker Lorenzo, Staying fit, and More!

    06.06.2012 / Blog Posts Redskins WOW Interview Series

    Lorenzo Alexander has a lot going on besides football. Father and husband, founder and president of the ACES Foundation focused on under-served youth, founder and part-owner of a local Pilates and fitness studio. The list goes on, and we didn't include his spot as one of the Redskins Team Captains last year.

    When WOW asked the linebacker how he manages it all, he replied, "I wouldn't be able to do it...without my wife. She is definitely my rock...without her I'd be lost." 

    As the team's female fan club, WOW had to sit down with ... Read More

    You’ve heard all the dangers of being overweight and how exercise can help, but you just can’t seem to get motivated, because it seems so strenuous! The good news is that even a small amount of exercise can make a big difference. Physical activity contributes to weight loss especially when it’s combined with calories reduction. It’s really that simple….calories in and calories out.

    You Can Get Active!

    While exercise may seem intimidating at first, you don’t need special skills or training to ... Read More

    The fifth and final nutrition principle the Redskins Players apply during the Off Season Strength and Conditioning Program is to "Stay Hydrated"(review the 5 principles here). We'll talk about the importance of hydration for women, the effects of dehyrdation and how to tell if you are hydrated enough.

    As a sports dietitian, hydration is one of my favorite topics because it affects every aspect of a person's health and performance. Better yet, small changes have instant returns! Redskins players are well aware that dehydration significantly affects performance ... Read More

    It seems like there's a mobile app for just about everything now - so why not use them to help you get fit!

    Apps are a fast and convenient way to keep track of calorie consumption and exercise. We all carry our phones everywhere we go, so having fitness apps loaded on them makes it even easier to keep ourselves in check. I use an app to keep me honest with my calories because portions can get out of control very easily. I have listed a few of my favorite ... Read More

    People who exercise regularly will tell you they feel better. Some will say it’s because chemicals called neurotransmitters, which are produced in the brain, are stimulated during exercise. Since it’s believed that neurotransmitters mediate people’s moods and emotions, they can make you feel better and less stressed.

    While there is no scientific evidence to conclusively support the neurotransmitter theory, there is plenty to show that exercise provides stress-relieving benefits. We all lead very busy and stressful lives. We stretch ourselves so thin that we don ... Read More
