Fister, Solis Impress; Jeroloman Almost Ready For Workouts

Standard

The hand slap isn’t just a great way to cheer each other on and encourage a few more reps, either: Once those hands come off the floor, your opposite shoulders and cores are forced to work a little bit harder. Shoot for sets of between 10 and 20 push-ups total. (You can drop down to your knees to do them if necessary.) upwave: Quick 5-minute upper body workout Better: Heart-opening side planks It’s a win-win situation: You get to develop your core, hip stability and back strength while maintaining butt-to-butt contact with your significant other! Lie on your side, and lift into a Side Plank so only your feet and your forearm are touching the floor. Have your partner do a Side Plank back-to-back with you.

That’s what we do. A couple pitchers stood out to me today: new Nationals right-hander Doug Fister and left-hander Sammy Solis . Fister stands very tall on the mound, and his tall is taller than most people’s tall. The 6-foot-8 righty definitely uses his height to his advantage, firing the ball on a downhill plane and attacking the lower portion of the strike zone. Everything was down in the zone from Fister today.
