Nadia Comaneci, the First Perfect 10 Olympian, Can Nail a Cartwheel 43 Years Later

It was in Montreal, back in 1976, when Nadia Comaneci stunned the world by earning the first perfect 10 in Olympic gymnastics history. She got seven of them, in fact – four on bars and three on beam – leading the Romanian gymnastics team to their first Olympic silver medal in the team event. Nadia herself won individual golds in the balance beam, uneven bars, and the highly-coveted all-around competition. Her scores were so unprecedented that the Olympic scoreboards weren’t even equipped to display them, posting 1.00 instead!

It was a history-making performance that still resonates, especially for Nadia herself. On the 43rd anniversary (to the day!) of her first Olympic perfect 10, she posted a short, sweet Twitter video to celebrate her achievement. “Here we go,” she captioned the video, which shows her executing a (pretty perfect-looking) cartwheel on the beach. She called out the anniversary and drew our attention to her son in the background, photobombing and stealing the spotlight with his own perfect 10 handstand.

Nadia remains a gymnastics icon and continues to hold the record as the youngest Olympic gymnastics all-around champion. (She was only 14!) It’s one record, in fact, that will never be broken; now, gymnasts must be at least 16, or turning 16 in the calendar year, to compete at the Olympics. And while other gymnasts followed her to the perfect 10 standard, a change to the scoring system in 2006 meant that we’ll never again see a 10 at the Olympic level. Luckily, we have plenty of footage of Nadia’s gorgeous routines to keep us satisfied. Keep reading to watch her first perfect 10 on the uneven bars and see more pictures from her record-breaking performances.

Or, just keep replaying her seaside throwback cartwheel. The toe point! The pose at the end! Yep, she’s still got it.

8 Common Running Injuries

1. IT (iliotibial) band syndrome

The syndrome cause pain on the knees’ outside. There is a ligament that along the outside of the thigh from the hop to the outside of the knee. When it thickens and rubs the knee bone, it causes inflammation. Cut back on exercises, heat and stretch before activity and ice after activity to treat.

2. Achilles tendinopathy

This condition was known as tendinitus and it is an Achilles tendon inflammation. The tendon is the one that attaches the back of the heel to the calf. It can cause stiffness and pain usually in the morning when you wake and when you perform an activity. It is caused by repeatedly straining the tendon. Easing the pain or treating it will need you to rest, ice the area and stretch the calf.

3. Muscle pull

A small tearing of the muscle when you overstretch it causes muscle pull. You might feel a popping sensation when it happens. RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) is the most common treatment for it. Often, it happens in the hamstring, calves, quadriceps and groin.

4. Ankle sprain

The accidental stretching and subsequent tearing of ligaments that surround the ankle causes this. It happens when you twist the foot or it rolls inwards. They get better with RICE treatment

5. Stress fracture

This refers to the crack in a bone that can cause pain. It is usually common around the shin and the feet. It is often due to overworking before you get used to an activity that is new to you. Pain usually increases when you increase activity because the stress on the bone is magnified.

6. Shin splint.

This is pain that occurs in the inside or the front of the lower leg along the shin bone, also known as tibia. They occur when you change your workout routine to something more intense. They are hard to differentiate from a shin fracture but the pain here is usually evenly spread along most of the bone. If you have flat feet, you are more likely to get this. Treating it will need you to rest, stretch and return very slowly to activity after several weeks of rest.

 

7. Plantar fasciitis

An inflammation of the thick tissue that extends from the heel to the toes at the bottom of your foot causes this. If you have tight calves and a high arch, you are more prone to getting this. It can be linked to additional activities and sometimes happens for no obvious reason. Stretch your calf, rest, ice and wear good shoes to treat this.

8 Common Running Injuries

 

8. Runner’s knee

This is a overuse injury that is caused mostly when you strain yourself. It also involved having your kneecap go out of alignment. The cartilage on your knee wears down and you might feel pain when this happens. It is usually inflamed when you go up and down stairs, bending the knee when you sit for a long time and squat.

Exactly What to Wear and Bring to Your First Hot Yoga Class, According to an Instructor

Hot yoga is a sweaty affair, and what you wear and bring to the studio can make or break your workout. After all, you don’t want to overheat in an already 100-degree room or slip in a puddle of sweat mid-Bakasana. Personally, I’m always soaked during workouts, so I reached out to Sakina Williams, a yoga instructor for more than 20 years and owner of BKBuddha, to find out exactly how to dress the part and what to bring with you. “Moisture-wicking material is best as it does not absorb the sweat which will leave you feeling dry through the end of class,” she said. Plus, “if sweat is absorbed, it will dry quicker than any other fabric and decrease odor.” Read on for her picks, then head into the studio with confidence.

This Is Exactly How to Eat and Work Out to Lose Fat Faster – and Do It Safely

You can’t choose where you lose fat first (like from your thighs or belly), but if you want to shed it quickly, “you must expend more calories than you ingest,” Charles Seltzer, MD, DABOM, CEP, a board-certified bariatric physician based in Philadelphia, PA, told POPSUGAR. “The more rapidly you would like to lose fat, the larger the calorie deficit must be.” But if you read that as permission to radically cut calories, know this: overhauling your diet alone will only set you up for failure, as you’re more likely to lose muscle that way than fat. Here’s how to safely speed up fat loss with diet and exercise, without running the risk that you’ll gain it back down the road.

What to Eat to Lose Fat Quickly

“The fastest way to lose fat is to remove sugar and reduce simple carbohydrates like bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice,” Wendy Scinta, MD, MS, president of the Obesity Medicine Association and a board-certified bariatric physician based in Fayetteville, NY, told POPSUGAR. “If you want it to be really fast, try cutting your net carbohydrates down to 20 grams.” Net carbs are calculated by subtracting fiber from total carbs. For context, 20 grams of net carbs falls in the range of the very low-carb keto diet. “If you choose this, you may need to cut your exercise back a bit until your body can become keto-adaptive (meaning it’s used to running on ketone bodies instead of glucose),” Dr. Scinta explained. “Take in at least half your weight in grams of protein to preserve muscle mass.”

Just keep in mind that if you suddenly switch to a diet like keto when you’re accustomed to eating junk food, you may struggle to implement such a drastic change. “From a lifestyle standpoint, the more you change at once, the less likely it is to stick over the long run,” Dr. Seltzer said. If you want to clean up your diet, start slow by eating more plant-based foods, then shift over to a more low-carb diet if that’s what you want to do.

How to Exercise For Fat Loss

While diet is most effective at speeding up fat loss, exercise is essential. Both doctors recommend incorporating high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to increase the rate of fat burning during and after your workout. “HIIT can also help protect your muscle mass while you are in a calorie deficit,” Dr. Seltzer said. During any other workout, aim to reach 70 percent of your maximum heart rate, known as the fat-burning zone. “The formula for maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age,” Dr. Scinta explained. “To find your fat-burning zone, you then multiply this by 0.7.” A 22-year-old’s maximum heart rate would be 198, which means she should aim to reach 139 during her workouts.

To help maintain muscle mass after tough workouts and keep your metabolism stable – which is crucial for keeping the weight off – aim for at least 1 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight, Dr. Scinta added. But of course, the best way to ensure long-term success is to listen to your body and lose weight at its pace. “Being patient and not taking drastic measures in the first place is the best play,” Dr. Seltzer said.

Six Effective Exercises You Can Do Alone

Some exercises are tried and tested. They have always worked. If you want some exercises that will give you the physical strength that you need and a toned body, you should try these exercises.

Six Effective Exercises You Can Do Alone

1. Walking

This is the best and easiest. Walking is great. It is like running but easy. You can even do it in the house on a treadmill. If you are just walking for fitness, start with 10 minutes or so at a time. Add a few minutes each day you do it and soon, you can walk a long distance with each increment. Quicken the pace and take to the hills after that.

2. Interval Training

Interval training uses time to make sure that you get the best out of your workouts. It will boost the fitness and burn calories. The idea is to vary intensity in the workout. Push the pace and then back off to take a break and go back in, pushing harder each time. Fine-tune the pacing using a trainer or valid information. Do. Rest. Repeat.

3. Squats

Squats work the quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes. Keep the feet shoulder-width apart and your back straight. Bend your knees and lower your bottom as if you are about to sit. Keep the knees straight over the ankles. After a while, add dumbbells when you get better with this one.
You should use a real chair for this move, once the back of your thighs touch the chair, stand back up.

4. Lunges

This one works all the major muscles of the lower body. It improves balance. You need to do it right.
Take a big step forward, keep the back straight and then bend the front knee to 90 degrees. Keep the weight on your back toes then drop the back knee to the floor. Do not touch the floor. Always keep the back straight. Do not bend your back. Add dumbbells after a while.

5. Push-Ups

This exercise will strengthen the chest, triceps, shoulders and core body muscles. Face down and place your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Place the toes on the floor. If that is hard, start on your knees. Make sure to engage the abs and bottom muscles. Bend the elbows until you almost touch the floor and then come back up. Keep your torso parallel to the ground at all times. If it is hard, start with higher levels like the kitchen counter and then go lower with the time.

Six Effective Exercises You Can Do Alone

6. Crunches

Crunches make the abs better and stronger. Core muscles need to be stronger to help you do strenuous activities with ease. This is easy to do because all you have to do is lie back straight on the floor and then raise your head, then neck and shoulders and then the upper back off the floor. Lower yourself slowly back down and repeat. You can try variations of it that are easy to do. Finally, you can do it with your fingers interlinked behind your head. Always breathe normally. Try as many methods of it as you can. Trainers on YouTube demonstrate it perfectly.

Review – MySoul CBD Oil

I FIRST learned of CBD oil a few years ago

My first exposure to CBD oil was from my good friend Ari Whitten.  You know “Ari” if you have been following me for a few years because Ari and I go way back… it started at the gym years ago when we became great friends and then we started training together.  Our training sessions turned into therapy for me as I would end up asking him a million questions about every ache or pain I had and he ALWAYS had the solution.

I found him BRILLIANT in all things health related!

We ended up co writing a few ebooks together, and over time he earned the title as “my guru” for all things new and cutting edge in health and fitness. I would learn something and then go to Ari for validation that it was good haha (he basically has Ghandi like power with me on this stuff!)  It became a running theme anytime I shared something new I learned with my husband Brooks, I would say it is “Ari approved!”

Ari knows me well and knew that I am someone who has dealt with ADHD and anxiety my whole life. He is the first one who taught me about Red light therapy, blue light blocker glasses and much more.

Ari recommended I try CBD oil and I hesitated. Why did I hesitate? Because I am a worrier (ummm hello anxiety!) and I knew it was derived from marijuana (illegal in CA at the time) and although I knew CBD did not contain THC (the part of marijuana that makes people high) I was afraid to try it. And again, remember I said “anxiety?” Well, I worry about lots of stuff, especially stuff like this.

Well, after my husband Brooks spoke with Ari, he was open to looking into it further.  After all, if anybody knows my struggles with ADHD and ANXIETY it is him…heck, he is the one living with me!  He went on a hunt to learn more and get a quality product for me.

The FIRST bottle he bought me was $900!

YEP $900!!  Crazy I know. AND it tasted like dirt. Seriously like dirt.  I haven’t really eaten much dirt, or any for that matter, but it is how I would imagine it would taste.  lol

I learned to embrace ‘the dirt’ as it WORKED!!  It tasted like dirt, and was pushing $1000 a bottle…but it WORKED FOR ME!!  So I sucked it up and took my ‘expensive dirt CBD’ on a daily basis.

I mixed it into smoothies, held my nose as I dropped it down my throat, etc… But so gross.  When I DID get past my aversion to the taste and actually take it, it worked like some sort of magic miracle oil.

My mind would calm.  Stress would melt away and I could focus.

However, the taste was SO GROSS and the price point was stratospheric…I had to find a better solution!

Sadly…it took YEARS for me to find a viable solution that WORKED like the original CBD oil, yet was palatable.

That solution came recently when I was talking with my friend Angie Lee and learned about MYSOUL CBD  (in case you don’t keep reading this page, I got you a discount if you use coupon code: NatalieJill )

Now, I am someone who has dealt with ADHD and Anxiety my whole life!

In addition, with my recently ruptured disc two years ago which added “chronic pain” to my symptoms.  I really needed my CBD oil!

As you are probably aware, my nutrition is pretty dialed in for the most part.  Yes, I have my moments, but all in all, I keep it pretty clean, and anti-inflammatory.  Besides, as a best selling author of TWO nutrition books, I can’t use “ignorance” as an excuse.

I don’t do dairy or grains, but even with the cleanest of anti-inflammatory diets chronic pain still happens (not as severe as if I ate a traditional American diet BUT it still happens).

Traditional medicine has prescribed me all sorts of “prescriptions” over the years and the list of side effect with those thing are very scary to me (ie produced anxiety). Although I HAVE dabbled with prescription medication at times, I have always searched for natural remedies first…that WORK!

There are many supplements I include daily (like turmeric and fish oil) and will continue to but the WONDER supplement I am obsessed with is CBD oil.

At one point, I even went on a mission to create my own!  That was one of my ADHD ‘ideas the month’ a year or so ago. I even spoke with a company that could source it, manufacture it etc… but in the end, that process was adding even more stress to my plate.

Fast forward to 2019, and my new workout partner Angie Lee!

We’ve known each other through friends but had not met in person yet!  When I learned we lived close, we had a blind date at the gym to grab a workout together! Through sweat sessions and chit chat (ok sometimes we chit chatted more than we worked out) I learned that she HAD her own CBD oil company!

WHAT!?

I was instantly interested when I saw the packaging(super cute) but more so, when she brought a bottle for to try.

It tasted GOOD!!!

Not “like dirt” but actually SUPER GOOD!  It is flavored!  I was sold!

I use her OIL 500 mg and her bath bombs (these smell great too!)  So now,  I am telling you… GO TRY HER STUFF!  It is legit…the best tasting, best smelling CBD product line I have encountered!

Plus, I even talked her into offering a discount to you, part of my loyal audience.

You can get it HERE.   …and be SURE to use coupon code: NatalieJill 

 

What can you use CBD oil for?

What can’t you use it for? Haha. Seriously though! You can use it for pretty much anything and everything . It is the miracle supplement. Legit. Miracle supplement. It basically has a better PR firm than KALE and TURMERIC too haha.

CBD oil for Pain Management

CBD oil is know to reduce or even alleviate the symptoms of SO MANY ailments. CBD is different than prescribed pharmaceuticals! Where prescriptions come with a whole long scary list of side effects and sometimes even a risk of addiction, cbd oil typically has NO side effects!

CBD Oil for Anxiety

Over 40 million Americans are diagnosed with “anxiety” This is a serious condition that can cause insomnia, excessive worry, panic attacks, high blood pressure, gastrointenstial problems and more. Prescription pharmaceuticals can alleviate some symptoms BUT with those prescriptions comes a whole host of side effects. CBD is a very mild and effective  way to take the edge off of anxiety without the list of side effects you see with prescription drugs.

CBD for STRESS (physical and emotional)

CBD has a very favorable impact on those suffering from anxiety. This includes PTSD, Social Anxiety, OCD, and even isolated panic attacks. Those that suffer anxiety and use CBD oil regularly have even found their symptoms to disappear completely over time.

CBD Oil for Sleep?

This is your new best friend. For real. Replace your over the counter things that make you drowsy and cranky the next day with this. This will offer you relief with your overall sleep quality.

The legality of CBD oil?

I know that first time users are always concerned about this! I was! Legal CBD oil is made typically from HEMP which is part of the same plant family as Marijuana but that is the only similarity! The major difference? No THC (that is the psychoactive ingredient in Marijuana). CBD is not psychoactive and is legal in most states.

If You’re Miserable in This Summer Heat, Try These Hilarious Sweat Hacks

Tiffany Jenkins (of Juggling the Jenkins) hates the Summer heat and says “I sweat in lots of weird places, and I’m not a fan of sweating.” She’s here to share some tips and hacks to prevent sweating from ruining your day (and your bra!). Some are a little ridiculous (attaching frozen yogurt tubes to your wrists?!), but some are completely genius, like keeping a squirt bottle of water in your purse to offer a gentle, cooling mist (which I’ve personally tried, and it works!). What’s even better is that all these hacks came from the dollar store!
