a bit of a kick in the ass to get out there and go practi

This is a very tough sport that teaches you a lot about yourself, and you can end up with a very strong body through it, said ?Adeline Gray, a three-time wrestling world champion who will be representing Team USA next month at the Rio Olympics. NGolo Kante Jersey .The 25-year-old Gray grew up with what she called a teenage boys body, a straight body with no hips or curves or much fat. As she grew taller and got stronger, she came to appreciate her form for what it is able to do.Gray sat down with ESPN The Magazine for the 2016 Body Issue to talk about how she went from being shaped like a teenage boy to counting on her strong frame to win her championships.Lets hear it for the boysSome leagues have rules against boys wrestling girls. If there isnt a rule in place, some teams may forfeit if one of their players has to go up against a girl.Gray says she is thankful that she never had many issues with people declining to wrestle her. According to Gray, her game would not be the same if it werent for the boys who were unafraid to wrestle a girl.Her trainingGray thanks her genetics for some of her body. However, her training helps her sculpt her physique and build muscle.Bike riding: We have two-hour practices, and it wouldnt be unusual for me to be on the bike for most of that -- pretty decent intensity for about an hour and 40 minutes if Im trying to cut weight. Obviously to a cyclist thats nothing, but to a wrestler who doesnt do long duration cardio that often, thats certainly a different pace.On-the-mat training: I think my favorite actual wrestling workout is when we do the dummy throws. My favorite one is the speed dummy. Its a lighter dummy that you throw repeatedly.No music, pleaseYou will catch many athletes sporting a pair of headphones before, during or after practices and games. Gray is not one of those athletes. She likes peace and quiet when she trains, and she definitely doesnt like screamo music.This summer, espnW is running stories, essays and letters on body image as part of a series called Love, My Body.

But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. Cesar Azpilicueta Jersey . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. Rory McIlroy is confident he can turn his season around by claiming a third U.S. PGA Championship title in the space of five years.McIlroy won the Irish Open in May and has recorded eight other top-10 finishes in strokeplay events in 2016, but failed to add to his tally of four major titles in the Masters, U.S. Open and the Open.The 28-year-old opted for neutral when asked to describe his 2016 campaign in one word, but feels he can find top gear once more at Baltusrol, especially after Mondays thunderstorm recalled the soft conditions which prevailed for his breakthrough U.S. Open victory at Congressional in 2011.Its a fair golf course, everything is straight out in front of you, said McIlroy, who won the U.S. PGA in 2012 and 2014 and has recorded three other top-eight finishes in his seven appearances.Theres no real hidden secrets to it and I feel thats what really lets me excel. I feel like I can play my game in PGA Championships. I can hit driver off the tee most times and from there, if I drive it well, I feel like I have a big advantage.Theres been times [this year] where I got a little bit of momentum and then sort of got set back a little bit. Its sort of been a little stop-start in a way. Im trying to stay as positive as I can. I feel like I am positive because my game is in good shape, but I guess Im just maybe running out of patience a little bit in trying to make it happen.As for a grade, Id say like a B- maybe. I could change that into an A+ on Sunday. Theres a lot of golf left, last major of the year, and I want to give it my all to get in the mix and try to win another one of these things before I have to wait another eight months to try to get another opportunity at Augusta next year.If McIlroy does not lift the enormous Wanamaker Trophy again on Sunday it will mean going two full years without a major title, the world No.4 having won the Open and U.S. PGA in 2014, with a first World Golf Championship title sandwiched in between for good measure.Since then thhe likes of Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson, Jason Day, Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson have demonstrated the strength in depth of world golf by winning majors, but McIlroy believes he should still expect to be winning one a year himself. Olivier Giroud Jersey. Id love to sit here and say Im going to win a major every year, he added. I could retire at 40 and be very happy.I think it is realistic, I really do. Weve seen in the past that is achievable. Thats the benchmark. Its hard but I guess from 2011-14 I averaged a major a year.Theres no reason to think that I cant do that for the foreseeable future. I have to play my best golf and sometimes its hard to come up with your best golf each and every week. I definitely think its attainable.McIlroy has finished third and fifth in his two events since missing the cut in the U.S. Open and admits he was motivated by being left trailing an amazing 16 shots behind Open champion Stenson at Royal Troon.I think any time you walk away from a big tournament and you havent lifted a trophy, its going to motivate you, McIlroy added.How can you not be motivated by watching that golf on the Sunday of the Open Championship with Phil [Mickelson] and Henrik? Just going blow for blow down the stretch, that can only give you motivation and get the juices flowing.You see guys and sometimes you think that should be me and it gives you a bit of a kick in the ass to get out there and go practice.McIlroy also has added motivation to get into contention and earn a late tee time for Sundays final round, revealing he has tickets to watch fellow Northern Irishman Carl Framptons world title boxing fight on Saturday.If everything goes to plan I will be able to get to the Barclays Centre [in nearby New York] to cheer him on, McIlroy added. Ive never been to one of his fights before so hopefully Ill have a late tee time on Sunday. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys CheapDiscount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys ' ' '
