Daily Deal: Extra workouts help save you bucks at Ojai resort

"I was so sore I couldn't lift my arms and then I noticed my pee was the color of cola," Lombardi recalled. "After Googling P90X and my symptoms, I immediately made an appointment with a kidney specialist." Fortunately, after a five-day hospital stay, the problem subsided and doctors told Lombardi there probably wouldn't be any lingering effects. However, Lombardi's experience may underscore the hazards of high-intensity interval training, or HIITS, an exercise and weight-loss trend that involves alternating bouts of extremely vigorous exercise with brief rest periods. HIITs programs have exploded in popularity in the past few years. The P90X DVD series has sold more than 4.2 million copies, according to Beach Body, the company that distributes the program. Insanity, also by Beach Body, has sold more than 2 million copies.

Barre fitness workouts provide all-over strengthening, toning

That was all the motivation I needed to keep going," she said. Then friends and clients started asking her, "What are you doing? You're getting smaller." She credits the consistent workouts, along with sensible eating and fewer cocktails, for the results. Since starting, she says, "I watch what I eat and don't drink as much Captain and Coke." Even though the scale budged by only a few pounds in those initial 21 days, the compliments and looser clothes were proof that her body was changing in a positive way. Barre fitness isn't new it's been in this country since the '70s. But it started taking off nationally in the last decade and within the last few years in the Tampa Bay area.

Beal visit their website is back working out with teammates at the Wizards facilities, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com. He is working out with Garrett Temple and Kevin Seraphin. This is good news for Wizards fans. Beal showed promise as the shooting guard to be paired with John Wall in a young backcourt he averaged 13.9 points a game and shot 38.6 percent as a rookie last season. Which is why when the stress injury came (it was not a fracture) the Wizards trainers were very cautious about letting him return. They could have pushed for Summer League but decided to play it safe.

But for the Tigers that hasn't been the case. LSU suffered what appears to be its second major injury of camp Wednesday when, according to several reports, offensive guard Josh Williford was knocked out with his second concussion in 10 months. This one might be career-threatening. Nelson Chenault/USA TODAY Sports Trai Turner might find more playing time with Josh Williford going down with another concussion. Williford, then LSU's starting right guard, was knocked out of the Florida game with a concussion and missed the remainder of the season. He said by the Chick-fil-A Bowl, he felt normal again and got past the fear of the re-injury.
