Sunburn Pain Explained Tips on How to Beat It Sunburn is one of the summer's most enduring stings, leaving a sore, red, peeling patch long after the day's rays give way to cooler nights. Ointments and Aspirin can help soothe the sear. Sunburns are the body's response to ultraviolet radiation, which kills some skin cells and permanently damages the DNA of others, sometimes leading to skin cancer later on. In an attempt to save the damaged cells with oxygen and nutrients, the body pumps more blood to the skin, turning it red. And the swollen blood vessels ooze plasma, causing blisters. "By the time you see your skin turning pink, it's almost too late," said Dr. Darrell Rigel, dermatologist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. "The damage has already happened." That damage, Rigel said, is impossible to undo. "The best thing you can do is protect yourself from the sun," he said. "Wear a broad-brimmed hat, avoid being outside when the sun is at its strongest, and use sunscreen. We know those three things together lower sunburn risk and subsequently lower the risk of skin cancer." But the sun is sneaky. And

even those who protect themselves fall victim to the odd pink shoulders or red feet. Rigel shared these tips for beating the pain and

protecting the tender skin after getting burned: Take an Aspirin Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that acts directly on chemicals known to play a role in sunburn pain. It will work better than acetaminophen. Keep It Cool The burn will release heat because of the increased blood flow. Sunburn creams that contain menthol will cool the skin. Stay Hydrated, Moisturized Damaged skin loses its ability to retain water. Drink lots of water, and use a heavy moisturizer like Vaseline. Avoid using topical anesthetics or antihistamines, which can lead to reactions on the newly exposed, immature skin.

Resist the Urge to Peel Normally it takes about 28 days for the cells at the base of the skin to work their way to the surface, where they die and are shed as individual cells. But when that process is packed into fewer days by a burn, the cells have less time to separate from their neighbors, and tend to come off in sheets. Let this happen naturally. Peeling the skin can leave a scar, and can even lead to an infection. Stay Under Cover If you have a blistering sunburn, you should stay out of sun for a week. The skin is already damaged and more sun will make it worse. If you have to go out, wear a hat and protective clothing. The best protection comes from fabric that is wooly, dark and a tight weave -- not ideal for 90degree heat. But new synthetic fabrics are lightweight, quick to dry and offer up to 50 SPF. Don't Forget The tops of the feet, shoulders, nose and ears are the body parts most often missed during sunscreen slathering.

TENNIS OAC’s comprehensive youth program is

unparalleled for children 4 through 18, beginners through advanced tournament players. Introducing your child to the lifelong game of tennis is our priority — whether they join us for recreation and socialization, or to hone their competitive edge. Programs include: • Instruction: classes, clinics, and lessons • Junior team tennis league • Tennis camps

Instruction: Classes, Clinics, and Lessons Our staff of USPTA professionals takes enormous pride in the quality of instruction we offer. Lessons and clinics are available for every skill level on a year-round basis. We cater our coaching to your child's individual needs — or the needs of the group.

Private, one-on-one, lessons are available to

strengthen every aspect of your child’s game. Our classes teach basic drills, serves and sportsmanship, according to each class level. All classes allow for special attention to individual needs. To schedule a lesson or inquire about youth instruction, contact our OAC Tennis Pro Marc Majdick or send us an email. tennis Note: Children who are not on their parents’ membership can still participate in the program for additional charge.

Junior Team Tennis League This program also includes a high school boys and girls team, which has regular practices during the off-season of their school team. Children who are not on their parents’ membership can still participate in the tennis program for additional charge.

Pro's Tips by Marc Majdick, USPTA Professional and OAC Head Professional Non-Hitting Hand On your forehand groundstroke, swing your non-hitting hand to the side, shoulder height. This will coil your body; and allow for a longer forward release. On your forehand volley, counter balance your racket hand, with a "copy cat" front hand. We call it a "y" hand position. On one handed backhands: place your nonhitting hand back, as though, it is on an "invisible wall". On serves and overheads, keep your non-hitting hand up, as the racket head drops behind your back. Your non-hitting hand, will key your preparation for better strokes!! Marc Majdick TENNIS PRO

Racquetball Tip: How many of you racquetball players have competed in games where you get to 12, 13, or 14 points and cannot close the deal? Remember, whatever strategies and offense got you to those scores should get you to 15 points. It is all-mental!!!! Some players get close to winning the game only to find themselves "trying to keep from losing" instead of "playing to win". Again, it is allmental. Focus on every serve. Be prepared for every rally. Stay focused and determined until the very end. Remember, your opponent has nothing to lose, so play harder and better. It is not over until you hear…… "Game point and match".

Trainer Tip Focus on adding to your diet, not taking away Often the negativity associated with taking certain foods out of the diet can hinder our progress. As a result, we get nowhere fast. In addition to this, when you add nutrient packed foods to your diet, you will naturally eat less of the unhealthier foods you’d like to avoid. This is because you feel more satisfied from the volume of the other foods you are eating, your body is getting more of the nutrients it needs, and so you crave food less.

OAC Puts on Purple! May 18th was ‘Put On Purple Day’ to bring awareness to the autoimmune disease, Lupus. If you have lupus, your immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues by mistake. This can damage your joints, skin, blood vessels and organs. There are many kinds of lupus. Anyone can get lupus, but women are most at risk. Lupus is also more common in African American, Hispanic, Asian and Native American women. The cause of lupus is not yet known.

OAC would like to thank you for your support and “Rockin’ Your Purple”!

GROUP FITNESS How to Relax Sore, Tired Muscles LOOSEN TIGHT MUSCLES Learn how you can use yoga exercises to loosen tight, sore muscles For some of us, the only kinky thing we've got going is our muscles. Those tension knots you feel begin when calcium and other minerals collect in your muscles and radiate pain. You can release the snarl by putting pressure on its trigger point. Try these maneuvers that take a new angle at an old knot.

1. Headaches: Base of Skull Place your fingertips on the base of your skull, where your neck muscles attach. Use the heel of your other hand to support your fingers and exert pressure. Relax your neck and let your head rest in your hands as you rub in small strokes across the muscle fibers.

2. Arch/Heel Pain: Calf Sit on the floor or in a chair and cross

your legs so that your right calf rests on your left knee. Slowly move your calf back and forth across your knee without sliding the skin, using the knee to work deep into the muscle.

3. Lower Back Pain: Glutes Locate the outer knobs of your sacrum (the bottom of your spine). Slowly rub the spot with a tennis ball against a wall a couple of times a day until the knot is gone.

4. Neck Pain: Upper Back Place your fingers on the muscle between your neck and shoulders (your trapezius) and knead up and down with short firm strokes so you work across the muscle fibers.

5. Hand Pain: Upper Forearm Sit in a chair and rest your forearm on your thigh. With a loose fist, place your knuckles at the top of your forearm, just below the elbow crease, and rub with short strokes. Kneading with your knuckles allows you to penetrate deeply without tiring your fingers.

PWFSMPPLFE BOE VOEFSBQQSFDJBUFE; IPW UP VTF UIF SPWJOH NBDIJOF o o Vtjnh uif Soxjnh Ujqt Gos Nbdijnf the rowing machine can be intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, it's an effective way to spice up your cardio routine. But while the rowing machine, also called an ergometer, is a calorie buster (about 280 calories in 30 minutes for an 130-pound woman) and a good leg and core workout, improper form can lead to back injuries if you're not careful. Read on for our tips on proper rowing form. Before you start, there are a few things to note about using the rowing machine. Make sure you wear formfitting clothes; otherwise you risk getting fabric caught in it while working out. Don't set the resistance too high — experienced rowers generally use the rowing machine at 3-5 during their workouts, so setting the machine at 2 or 3 is perfect for a beginner. Keep your strokes per minute somewhere in the low- to mid-20s as well. There are different ways to measure your workout, so use

the change display button on your machine to track your strokes per minute, calories burned, kilometers traveled, or your split (how many minutes it takes you to travel 500 meters). Beginning Position For your first row, set the resistance low while you figure out your form, then slowly ramp it up on subsequent rows. Secure your feet on the pads with the straps tight enough so your feet don't move around as you slide. Bring your knees up and slide to the top of the machine. Grab the handle using an overhand grip, but don't hold too tightly. Pull the handle with you as you slide to the end of the machine. Your legs should be straight, but knees should still have a slight bend in them so they aren't locked. Lean back slightly and pull your hands up to your chest, holding the handle so it is right below your breasts, with elbows

4 3

pointing down against your sides. This is the position where you should begin your workout, and it's also your ending position once you complete a full stroke. The Catch Move your arms out first, followed by your upper body. Your back should always stay straight, not slumped, with shoulders back and abs engaged as you follow through. As your arms extend out, your upper body position will go from slightly angled back to slightly angled forward. As your arms extend and body leans forward, slide your body forward on the seat by bending your legs. Once you are at the top of the machine, your arms will be fully extended and legs will be bent. This part of the stroke is called the catch. The Drive To slide back to your finish position, push off with your feet first, so that your legs straighten but your arms are still extended and your body is still slightly leaning forward. The drive is the part of the workout that

mimics pulling the oars out of the water and propelling the boat forward, so it's this part that works your leg and core muscles the most As you continue to push through with your legs, move your upper body so that you begin to lean back The last part of your body to return to finish position are your arms; as your upper body angles back, pull the handle and bend your arms so that the handle ends up back to touching the front of your chest, just like how you started. Don't grip the handle too hard; the power should be through your legs, and using too much force while pulling the cable can cause hand blisters as well as back problems. Continue practicing your stroke slowly and at low resistance until you get the hang of it! It can be helpful to break the moves down into a sequence of what should move first: "arms-body-legs" as you pull up to the top of the machine and "legs-body-arms" as you push back.

7 Ways to Get Your Body SwimsuitReady, Starting Now, so you can come out & enjoy the pool at OAC this summer Tank tops, shorts, and swimsuits… oh my! It’s June, which means you’ve had to peel off your winter clothes soon. While only you know what you’ve been hiding underneath all those layers, you’re not the only one who feels insecure this time of year. Although you can safely lose only about 1 to 2 pounds of body fat a week, you can feel more confident by swimsuit season if you begin making changes today. Here are 7 attainable goals to set and stick to, starting now: 1. Get your sweat on with strength training! If you want to feel good in your bathing suit, this is nonnegotiable: Fit your workout in, no excuses! Commit to a full-body strength-training program at least three times a week to burn calories during the workout, boost your metabolism‘s calorieburning power for 24 to 48 hours after, and develop lean muscles that look and

feel better than flab. Perform exercises that use more than one muscle group such as squats, pushups, rows, and lunges in a circuit to make your workouts most efficient. Tip: Try working out in the morning to get your metabolism revved up for the rest of the day. 2. Make your butt and belly your top priorities. Your glutes (butt muscles) are the biggest muscles in your body, so working them out is one of the best ways to burn calories—and prevent a saggy bikini-bottomed butt. (There’s nothing worse!) Of course, everyone knows that the real key to looking great in a bathing suit is having a flat belly! Give both areas extra attention during workouts leading up to and during bikini season by performing this move right after warming up at the beginning of each workout, 2 to 3 times a week: Bridge Marching: Lie on your back with your knees

bent and your feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips off the floor so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees, keeping your hips parallel to the ground. Maintaining that straight line, lift your right knee upward, so your foot comes up off the ground. Then, return it to the starting position and lift your left knee the same way. Continue alternating (as if you are marching in place), keeping your butt muscles contracted the entire time for a total of 10 on each leg. 3. Drink extra water. Skimping on water can reduce the effectiveness of your workouts because even mild dehydration can affect your performance and fatburning potential. If you need another reason to drink up, swallow this:

4 5

the best way to rid yourself of excess water weight is to flush your body with water. You should drink at least half your body weight in ounces each day (e.g., a 150-pound woman should drink 75 oz. or the equivalent of about four and a half 16.9 oz. bottled waters a day). Just don’t skimp on the ice! Research has shown drinking ice-cold water causes your body to work harder (i.e., burn more calories) to maintain its ideal core temperature. So gulp down the cold stuff like it’s your fat burning fuel—because it is! 4. Increase your daily intake of natural diuretics. These are foods that increase the speed at which fluids pass through your body to help you de-bloat. Natural diuretics include cucumbers, asparagus, lemon, green tea, and any foods with a higher concentration of magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, and/or caffeine. Tip: Try adding cucumber or lemon to water. 5. Cut back on processed, starchy carbohydrates such as breads, pastas, bagels, cookies, and crackers. Most of these foods are loaded with extra sodium and preservatives that can contribute to water retention and bloating. If the ingredients on a packaged item list more than a few ingredients—or anything you can’t pronounce—don’t eat it. Instead, opt for a serving of one of the many fresh fruits and veggies now in season, with lean protein to keep you satisfied.

6. Reduce your alcohol intake. If you’re used to having a glass of wine or pint of beer every night, try cutting back to two or three nights a week. You’ll reduce your total calorie intake and set yourself up for a better night’s sleep to energize you for your workout the next day. Tip: When you do indulge, always sandwich your drink with a glass of water before and after to avoid alcohol’s dehydrating effects. 7. Stand up taller and engage your core muscles. Think about tucking your hips underneath and tightening up your stomach as if you were going to be punched. Improving your posture will instantly make you look thinner—even if you haven’t lost a pound yet! —And train your body to hold everything in once you’re in a swimsuit. Every 15 minutes, set an alarm for a “posture check” to train your body: If you’re standing, stand up straight and hold everything. If you’re sitting, pull those shoulders back and engage your stomach muscles.
