Daniel "Boomsauce" Tyminski's introduction to CrossFit wasn't a matter of wandering into a gym to try this popular training regimen. Instead, the Long Island native first became interested in cross-training when he was stationed in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army. Like many soldiers, staying in tip-top shape was important not just for physical conditioning that could be a lifesaver out in the field, but also to help relieve stress during downtime back at base camp. He recalls that one of his buddies introduced him to this new high intensity, greatly varied training style and he was hooked instantly.
"The thing I loved about CrossFit right from the start was its wide open structure -- it's all about constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity," Boomsauce says. "Because we didn't have much in the way of traditional lifting equipment overseas, this type of workout -- which utilized bodyweight and whatever weighted implements we could get our ...
Football's ultimate "secret weapon" at the wide receiver position is not a secret anymore. In fact, last weekend, Danny Amendola wrote his name in extra large script in the record books.
Amendola was all over the field against Washington on Sunday afternoon, hauling in an amazing 12 receptions in the first half alone, tying a league record set by future Hall of Famer Reggie Wayne in 2007. On the day, quarterback Sam Bradford threw 16 passes in Amendola's direction and football's best possession receiver caught 15 of them for 160 yards and a touchdown, powering his St. Louis team to a 31-28 win over Washington.
Danny Amendola is one of a rare breed of receivers: the guy who's always open, even when he's covered.
Amendola may have been traveling under the radar for casual fans, but defensive coordinators around the league are very familiar with the former standout from Texas Tech. Gifted with a well-rounded game built around speed,...
A Revitalized Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy Eyes the UFC's Top Ranks Once More
For the man they call "The Outlaw," May's welterweight match-up in UFC 146 against Duane Ludwig might as well have been High Noon in front of the Last Chance Saloon. A loss would have put Dan Hardy's career in jeopardy. A win was the only option.
But the Dan Hardy who stood in the Octagon on that night was a different man than the one who had suffered a crisis of motivation in the months following a championship bout loss to Georges St-Pierre in March of 2010. Standing across from Ludwig was a man who had rediscovered his focus in a new team, new training, and a new emphasis on his love for MMA. The result was a Round One knockout, as Hardy connected with a vicious left hook followed by a ground-and-pound. Ludwig scarcely knew what hit him.
Suddenly Dan Hardy is pointed in the right direction again and will face "T...
It is a staple element in every fight movie -- the hero, ravaged in the biggest bout of his life, questions himself and everything he has accomplished. In a moment of despair he looks deep inside and commits to rebuilding his body for an amazing comeback in the ring or cage.
In the case of
UFC heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum, this is not a Hollywood tale. Following a close decision loss to a bigger, more muscular Alistair Overeem in the summer of 2011, Fabricio's rising MMA career hit a stone wall. "I was very aggressive and hit Overeem a lot, but I wasn't strong enough to get him to the ground to finish him," says the Brazilian grappler. "So I vowed then that I would never lose another bout to a fighter who was stronger or more powerful than me." As a result, he took a new approach to his training ... and turned to

Destiny has come knocking for Frank Mir, the two-time UFC heavyweight
champ, and he aims to throw open the door and make the most of it.
A couple of months ago, Mir was still on the long road to his
redemption, training for a fight against Cain Velasquez, when rumors of a
shake-up in the UFC 146 fight card began to surface. The word was,
Alistair Overeem was out, and the UFC was looking at Mir as his
replacement in the UFC 146 Heavyweight Championship fight against Junior
dos Santos. Within days, the suspense was over. Mir was in. He would
have another shot at the belt.
It was a stunning turn of events, but one Mir had earned by virtue of
three straight dominating victories against the likes of top contenders
Mirko Filipovic, Roy Nelson, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. In that last
fight, the relentless Nogueira refused to submit to a kimura, and Mir ...
Exclusive ProSource Interview: Mike Sorrentino Is Ready to Lead Jersey Shore Into Its 6th Season
Snooki and JWoww in Jersey City? Pauly D in Vegas? More than ever, it's all up to The Situation on the
Here at ProSource, we've been big fans of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and the
Jersey Shore gang ever since they took up residence a few miles down the beach from us in Seaside Heights. Guys and girls with plenty of attitude and ambition, proper respect for fitness, and all the right priorities. (That's GTL: Gym, Tan, and Laundry.)
From the first episodes of
Jersey Shore, when we...
Big Ron vs. Dwayne Johnson? Hulk Hogan?
Kurt Angle? We Asked, Ronnie Answered.
By now, we all know how the typical post-retirement interview with a former sports superstar goes. The star talks about past glories and says he doesn't miss the spotlight at all.
Ronnie Coleman, however, as long-time fans of the professional bodybuilding know, doesn't fit the stereotype. When we sat down to talk to him at the conclusion of the 16th Annual NPC Ronnie Coleman Classic recently, Big Ronnie was in no mood to talk about the past. Ronnie Coleman is--and has always been--all about the future.
Within moments of sitting down, we found ourselves entirely off script and talking about Ronnie's love of the WWE and TNA and, amazingly, about his long-held desire to enter the ri...
The ProSource Interview With UFC Fighter Rashad Evans on the Eve of His Championship Bout
[Editor's Note: In the end, Evans / Jones in UFC 145 was as close and as competitive as everyone thought it would be. Rashad Evans went the distance in an epic clash of light-heavyweight titans, but Jon Jones got the unanimous decision, as the judges scored it 50-45, 49-46, and 49-46 in Jones' favor. Neither fighter went down as they went toe to toe in the cage, each seeking an edge against an opponent he knew so well. Evans didn't get the championship belt he coveted, but he earned the respect of Jones, who said after the fight, "Hats off to Rashad. He definitely has made a lot of leaps and bounds in his game." Now, Evans, whose record is st...
