seriously — thank you.

Putting this issue together was painful on so many levels. First of all, I was a mess. Mentally, I was exhausted from the inexorable global panic and from juggling 24/7 child care and work, which was (and still is at this writing) nothing short of impossible … not to mention trying to learn — then teach! — second-grade math. (Did you know that “carrying the 1” is no longer a thing?) Physically, I felt weak because not only do I seriously hate to work out at home but also the heaviest thing I had on hand (besides my 7-year-old) was a naked barbell. I could feel my strength and motivation erode with each lackluster workout, while in the background the world continued to crumble and mutate into a grotesque frenzy. But…

On Meals and Models I have picked up Oxygen in the past, but this one has to be the best one yet! The “Blend In” and “Make-Ahead Meals” articles in the Spring 2020 issue were exactly what I was looking for.

As much as I love and respect the fitness athletes from years ago like Mocha Lee and Amy Fadhli, the photos were always shot and posed to look “hot.” Now the photos are of women looking strong, athletic and determined — which are much more inspiring. I also love the Tabata workout you featured a couple of issues ago. I’m incorporating it into my workouts and loving it. More Tabata, please! — SONYA, VIA EMAIL Reader Rewind I just want…

She grew up playing soccer and basketball and was an accomplished Irish step dancer and figure skater, but these days, she stays fit with the help of Fido. “I take my dog for three walks daily and…

close to the vest

While most of the world is trying to lose weight, you might want to gain some — in the form of a weighted vest. This versatile training tool can make even the most basic of exercises more demanding by increasing your calorie burn and metabolism without any extra effort on your part. Weighted vests have been shown to improve balance and postural awareness while honing coordination, increasing stability and boosting bone density. New to the vest idea? Begin by adding 5 percent of your bodyweight and add more incrementally as you get stronger. BOX JUMP Stand facing a box with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and hips and swing your arms back to drop into a shallow squat, then quickly extend your legs and hips and swing your arms forward…
