SIA Soliola is setting his sights high as Saints e

first_imgSIA Soliola is setting his sights high as Saints enter the second half of the First Utility Super League season.The forward has been an ever present in Nathan Brown’s side this campaign and is ready for a big finale.And he reckons the attitude is right in the camp for an assault on Old Trafford.“Perhaps the Warrington game was a blessing in disguise,” he explained. “Maybe we were just getting through games rather than finishing them and not addressing the real issue about how we were approaching those matches.“Since Huddersfield there has been a big attitude change within the team. After the Wolves game Wello (Paul Wellens) said it was embarrassing and we took that on board.“The club didn’t deserve that performance and nothing less than first place is where we need to be. It will be tough but we are capable of it.“It was nice to have a break ahead of the match with Catalan but I’d rather have been in the Challenge Cup. It will be tough there but we will go with the right attitude. They did have a rough start but have come into form now and have players back.“They have big forwards and it will be a real tough ask for us.”Like Tommy Makinson, Sia has appeared in all Saints’ games this year and is continuing to be the hub of a strong pack.He continued: “I’m happy with my form; I’ve had to adapt in different positions and I have played in the back row, centre, front row and lock so far. I’ve enjoyed showing how versatile I am and I’ve enjoyed being at lock, being up there in the grunt and amongst the action.“I think it’s best suited for me and the more I play there the more comfortable I get. There’s more to come too.”After the win at Castleford, Nathan Brown indicated that Sia would leave the club at the end of the season to return to Australia.Soliola confirmed this but said it is for all the right reasons.“I’ve expressed to the club that I am looking to go home at the end of the season and that is solely based on family reasons. The club has been fantastic to me but I feel it is time to move back home to Australia.“Nothing is sorted yet and I am focusing on Saints and Old Trafford.“It has been a hard decision as I feel I have made a lot of friends over here. It will be hard as Eamonn, Mike Rush and Nathan have been great to me, I can’t fault them; at this stage it is for family reasons.”last_img read more

Humpday Health Using balls at the gym to spice up your workout

first_img A “Both Sides Up”, or BOSU, ball is an inflated rubber hemisphere used for lots of different exercises. It allows you to work on your balance and your whole body will feel the burn after using it.“Using the BOSU ball, we covered almost your entire body. Everything is engaged to keep the balance on the ball,” said Varady.The weighted ball can be used in a variety of ways and cover many different muscle groups.“Using the weighted ball, depending on what exercises, we were using the abs, we were using shoulders, we were using mostly the core, we could have added some legs into that,” said Varady.It’s easy to get burned out with the same old routine at the gym. Mixing in some different workouts with the BOSU or weighted ball can help alleviate that feeling.“Coming into the gym every day, your workouts get boring, so by adding these new little toys into your workout just makes everything a little bit more exciting, a little bit more challenging,” said Varady.So the next time you want to break a sweat, choose a ball instead of a dumbbell. WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — “If you see something in your gym that you don’t know what to do, there’s trainers, there’s managers, there’s even your peers that can help you come up with different things,” said health expert Evonne Varady.The gym is the place for athletes to train so they’ll be prepared before they hit the ball field, but did you know there are balls at the gym to enhance your workout?- Advertisement – last_img read more

Some totals exceeded 20 inches from the North Carolina-South Carolina border east to southeastern North Carolina. The slow forward speed of the storm created persistent rain bands over the area, leading to almost 36 inches of rain near Elizabethtown, shattering the record of 24.06 inches in Southport during Hurricane Floyd in 1999.In South Carolina, 23.93 inches of rain was recorded at Loris, beating the previous record of 17.45 inches near Lake Jocassee when Tropical Storm Beryl soaked the state in 1994.last_img read more
