Calling all deskworkers, musicians, artists, massage therapists… really anyone that sustains a forward leaning posture for any length of time – this stretch is for you! I know I need it, and am actually doing this stretch between sentences. (I added that picture of me up there to the right so you can get a nice visual.) It’s surprising how effective this stretch is, even though it looks so minimal.
I love this topic and thought I’d blog about it this week for those of you who may be wondering. . .so if you want to experience more from core and spring work and less lower back pain (and who doesn’t?!). . . . . . read on:
Neutral Spine is the form that we at Burn believe is healthiest. I like to think of Neutral Spine as protecting the integrity of your spinal health, as well as respecting and maintaining the way the spine is naturally structured.
There have been numerous reports that we have a ghost at DIAKADI. Seriously…Most of the staff is certain of the fact. Some of the trainers and even a couple of clients have had a run in with the ghost named “Doris” by front desk staff and trainer Cristian Luecke.
Not usually a believer in the hocus pocus spirit world mumbo jumbo, Cristian has felt a female spirit presence numerous times and even once saw a female form out of the corner of his eye at 9:45pm…yes, he remembers the exact time.
“As I was at the front windows of the gym, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a female form dressed in a 1920′s era dress with blood on her apron. The first time she walked from the Consultation room around the bike parking and into the Trainer Lounge area. Since it was a “comforting” presence and I couldn’t believe what I saw, I went about my business. It wasn’t until I saw her AGAIN walking along the same path, that I got spooked. The gym was closed and no one else was inside. That is when I knew there was a ghost, and I named her Doris.”
Allison Wagner, US Olympic Swimmer and Medalist, speaks with DIAKADI founder/owner Billy Polson about the importance of strengthening the external rotators of the shoulder and demonstrates a few sample exercises.
What traits make a good leader? Among them adaptability, tenacity, vigor, drive, and a team-oriented mindset. . .qualities also shared by athletes of all kinds. Here David Williams, author of The 7 Non-Negotiables of Winning expands our view of what makes an athlete, why hiring them is a great idea, and how skills we develop in the gym can also help us improve our work lives.

Here are a few healthy and delicious meals I’ve made recently, featuring some tasty fall flavors and seasonal produce.
I make chicken in the slow cooker quite frequently, using whatever vegetables look good at the market, plus whatever spices and sauces seem interesting to me at the moment. Some of these experiments are great successes; others not so much. This was one of the recent successes. As with most of my recipes, quantities are pretty flexible, so use the proportions that make sense to you:
