    The second dietary principle I promote with the Redskins Players to maximize their off season strength and conditioning program is a principle WOW members have heard me discuss many times before. Read on to learn how to optimally fuel your body for your busy lifestyle!

                           "Re-fuel 5-6 times a day"

    The body functions best with a slow infusion of nutrients and energy. Our busy lifestyle however, does not support this pattern naturally, requiring us to plan and schedule refueling. You would never consider driving across the country without stopping ... Read More

    Redskins Park is buzzing with energy again with the return of the players for the Offseason Strength and Conditioning Program (OSSCP)! This is the phase of training where the athlete is focused on optimizing his body composition and working on his strength and endurance so that he enters training camp in July in the best athletic condition of his life.

    As the team dietitian, the OSSCP is my "In Season" because body composition, strength and endurance cannot be maximized without the building blocks of protein, carbohydrates, essential fats, vitamins ... Read More

    Keeping up with a workout schedule all on your own can be a difficult thing. You may find it’s hard to push yourself to go workout when you don’t have anyone else there to help get you off your butt! Group support, social interaction and positive reinforcement are strong motivators to starting and maintaining an exercise program.

    I have seen many people who were not successful by themselves but were more motivated when working out with friends. My son, Zach, created the word “friendercise” just ... Read More

    Do vacation and exercise go together?

    The answer is up for debate.

    As I was on vacation this past week, I had an internal battle going on in my head. I know I should be relaxing and enjoying the time away with my family. But in the back of my mind, I felt like I needed to keep up with my workouts. I went to the gym and ran as I would have at home. It got me thinking about how obsessed or consumed I am by ...
