SIXERS FORWARD Elton Brand spends his summers at his home in the Los Angeles area. He calls it his "vacation spot," though he rarely allows himself to kick back and chill. Brand, who will be 33 in March, knows that the end of his NBA future is like an oncoming wave at the beach - it can't be stopped. He does his best each summer to stall the inevitable - riding his bike for endless hours and miles, swimming lap after lap after lap in the pool and working on his basketball game at a local gym. He wants to squeeze as many seasons as he can out of his body, and that is why the potential of losing this season to a lockout is so bothersome.

The good news for Andrew Bynum and the 76ers is that he incorporated full-speed sprints into his workouts. The bad news is that he was in pain. Bynum spent Saturday and Sunday working out harder than he has at any point during his recovery from bone bruises to both knees and cartilage damage in his left knee. "I got a lot of pain so we backed down a little today," Bynum said. Pain has always accompanied Bynum, who has ramped up his workouts in recent weeks. But on Monday he acknowledged that the pain might be the type that he will simply have to endure if he is going to return.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told reporters last week that he is planning to have an organized workout or two with his wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs, possibly as soon as this week. "This time, we can do it our way," Vick said. Well, there is a way to organize a workout, and then there is Mark Sanchez's way, and Vick would be wise to follow Sanchez's blueprint. It is, after all, the gold standard, and as we all know the Eagles are the NFL's gold standard, so nothing less should do. Sanchez recently held a five-day passing camp with 14 of his New York Jets teammates in Southern California, where the quarterback lives in the offseason.

Despite being the subject of trade rumors, Asante Samuel was at the NovaCare Complex for the first day of the Eagles' offseason workout program on Monday. Also in attendance was running back LeSean McCoy, who could be a potential training camp holdout if the Eagles don't extend his rookie contract. Samuel typically spends most of his offseason working out in South Florida. He has skipped a number of the nonmandatory sessions during his previous four seasons with the Eagles. So his presence came as a bit of a surprise.

JOHN CHANEY and football. Bet you never figured that name and sport would appear in the same sentence, right? Chaney, of course, was the longtime basketball coach at Temple University and now owns a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Q: Should I exercise for 60 minutes consecutively, or can I get the same results from three 20-minute workouts in a day? - Debra Lee A: Ideally, it would be best to prioritize an hour for your workout and get it done. However, if there's just no other way to do it then, sure, break it up into three sessions or whatever configuration works for you. The good news is the benefits of exercise are cumulative. Bottom line? Just do it!

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Two pitchers once projected to be in the top three spots of the Phillies' rotation had their schedules bumped back yesterday. Cole Hamels, who entered camp behind schedule after battling biceps soreness in November, had his bullpen day moved from yesterday to today. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, originally on tap to make his Phils debut tomorrow in Dunedin, was pushed back to Saturday after missing camp Monday with an illness. The rookie was back in camp yesterday.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Larry Bowa is one of the best fielding infielders in Phillies history. With a tireless work ethic, Bowa made himself into a five-time All-Star, a two-time Gold Glove winner and a shortstop who led the National League in fielding percentage in six seasons. Bowa was stationed at shortstop late yesterday afternoon on the infield practice field at the Carpenter Complex. But instead of a glove, the former manager and current bench coach and infield drill sergeant was wielding a fungo bat. Bowa blasted short hops - and other ground balls that simulated low throws - at first base, where Ryan Howard and Darin Ruf were on the receiving end. Howard was getting the brunt of the work, with four or five repetitions to every one or two for Ruf. "I thought he was looking good," Bowa said afterward of Howard, who has been criticized for his fielding.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On the first day of official workouts for pitchers and catchers, a contingent of front-office members, coaches and media gathered between two of the four fields named after Phillies Hall of Famers at the Carpenter Complex. At least a dozen pitchers were scheduled to throw off several mounds, but the man who summoned the largest collection of the assorted eyeballs was a 27-year-old who has never pitched in a game in the United States. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, the Cuban righthander the Phillies nabbed as a free agent in August, threw a bullpen session.

MOBILE, Ala. - It's difficult for DaQuan Jones to get lost in a crowd. But the Penn State defensive tackle said he did just that during the first day of Senior Bowl practices with the North squad. "I started out kind of slow on Monday learning a couple of new plays," Jones said after Wednesday's session. "But I think two days in I picked it up a little bit. I had a couple of bad plays today, but that's football. " The 6-foot-3, 323-pound Jones had a strong senior season after playing in Jordan Hill's shadow as a junior.

After his freshman year, Christian Stackhouse tried with his coach, Kevin Landolt, to get the Riverside wrestling team together for summer workouts. Stackhouse and Landolt were the only ones who showed up. They still went ahead with their conditioning training and continued to do so two or three times every week throughout that summer and the next two. Every so often, one or two others would join them, but it was often just the two of them. Coming from Riverside, not a traditionally strong wrestling program, Stackhouse knew he needed those extra workouts to compete with wrestlers from some of the established powers in the area.

Tony Wroten wants to bring energy and a fast tempo to the 76ers. "I came from a team that almost went to the finals," said the second-year guard who was acquired Aug. 22 in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies. "So I've seen the hard work that you have to put in and the dedication. " That hard work, energy, and tempo were on display during Monday's practice at St. Joseph's Hagan Arena. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder was a step quicker than every other Sixer. He made crisp passes and converted transition baskets during the end-of-practice scrimmage.

Reinforcements could be on the way soon for the Phillies. Before Monday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Washington Nationals, Phillies general manger Ruben Amaro Jr. spoke optimistically about the progress of injured catcher Carlos Ruiz and second baseman Chase Utley.
