Newark firefighters build strength, de-stress with yoga workouts









Firefighters on the job need to be completely calm, Kaminsky said. But just as important, off the job, when they leave that fire and theyve just been in this horrific situation, they have to go back to civilian life whether theyre a parent, whether they are a husband or a wife. Practicing yoga helps to settle yourself. It helps you to become more present so you can just be focusing on the current moment instead of thinking about the past. There are other fire departments around the country that are max workouts free offering yoga classes for first responders but they are in smaller cities like Somerville, Mass., and Alexandria, Va. Ziyad said Newarks program could start a trend. A lot of our men in the fire department tend to be a little bit more traditional in their exercise regimen, so thats one reason we wanted to introduce it to the fire service, Ziyad said. Weve got a lot of old-school guys who look at yoga as more of a womens exercise, but theyd be surprised how much exertion it takes stretching and doing slow movement.

Former coach Pete Carroll allowed media and fans to attend practice. An athletic department spokesman could not recall the last USC coach to close practices to the media. Kiffin said that leaving practices open would be in his best interests, "but it's my job to do what's best for our team." That could become Kiffin's mantra this season. Athletic Director Pat Haden last week released a video in which he said Kiffin was not on the "hot seat." The next day, when addressing his decision not to relinquish play-calling duties, Kiffin said, "It's in the best interest of our football team for me to continue to call plays." USC's practice policy under Kiffin changed last season when he declined to discuss injuries and prohibited reporters from writing about injuries that occurred during practice. Last September, Kiffin barred a reporter from practice for reporting that kicker Andre Heidari had undergone knee surgery.

But apparently that is not always the case. Georgia defensive lineman Garrison Smith revels how drastically the summer workouts have changed from his freshman year to his senior season. Smith also talks about who will be the next Adrian Peterson in the Bulldogs backfield. (Hint it is not who you expect.)

Fitness Tip of the Day: Record your workouts




Was it a tough run? A grateful one? Theres also a button for manual activity. Click on it and you fill in the blanks for a variety of activities you do. I use it when I swim laps, filling out how far I go and how long it took me. I also use it for vaguer exercises I do. Theres no pull-down from the menu, for example, for yoga , so I just write it in a blank. Theres also no pull-down for the Scientific 7-Minute Workout Im trying to do more regularly, so I just pop that name in.

Pearl Gabel/New York Daily News Reporter Molly Friedman at a JumpDance class at Jump Life in Tribeca. RELATED: NYC PUTS THE CYCLE ON SPIN AND RINSE It was hard! says an exhausted Joy Lewis, 45, after taking a JumpDance class at the JumpLife studio in SoHo, which opened in October. President Montserrat Markou says her heart-pounding cardio classes burn an average of 500 calories. At Bari, instructors undergo six to eight weeks of trampoline training before teaching. Enduring a one-hour BariBounce class burns at least 500 calories, and as many as 900, according to Perez.
