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.

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.

Timber Creek senior Randy Bell cuts the fat when talking about the earlier portion of his basketball career. "In ninth grade I was chubby," he said, chuckling, a thought even more laughable when one looks at the 6-foot-3, 175-pound senior. Timber Creek coach Rich Bolds has known Bell since he was 8 years old and admits in those days the youngster wasn't particularly fluid on the court. Still, Bolds even then forecast that Bell could be a special player. "Even when he was a little kid and chubby, his vision was off the charts," Bolds said.

Running and losing weight don't always go together A lot of people start running to lose weight, and rightfully so. It's a major calorie burner. But just because you pick up the sport doesn't mean you're guaranteed a smaller waistline. That's because burning calories increases your demand for calories, and if you eat too much to compensate, you'll do just the opposite of what you wanted: gain. "Many people find that, when they start running, they get hungrier," said Jennifer Van Allen, running coach and coauthor with dietitian Pamela Nisevich Bede, of Run to Lose: A Complete Weight Loss Guide for Runners . "And even if their stomachs aren't growing louder and more often, they just feel entitled to eat more.

Lane Johnson threw up nine times during his first three days working with Jay Glazer this summer. He was gifted enough to be the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 draft and strong enough to start for the Eagles at right tackle the last two seasons, but blocking on Sundays is different than fighting Randy Couture. At the Senior Bowl, Johnson's agent approached Glazer, the Fox Sports reporter who cofounded Unbreakable Performance Center in West Hollywood, Calif. Glazer trains football players in mixed martial arts and Johnson was one of four Eagles who spent time there this offseason.

Rachel Blumenfeld was constantly fidgeting with her clothes during her CrossFit classes. With a size 8 waist and a size 10 or 12 legs - "my wonder thighs," she calls them - broad shoulders and a large chest, her pants kept falling down. The shirts of the 5-foot-9, 170-pound CrossFit competitor were creeping up. "You don't focus on what you're doing; you're adjusting your clothes the whole time," she recalled. Spending six to 10 hours at the gym each week, it was hard to ignore that other hourglass-shaped athletes she encountered - CrossFitters, gymnasts, rowers - were in the same boat.

CHASE UTLEY is not a candidate to move to a new team before Major League Baseball's trade deadline, which arrives a week from tomorrow, on July 31. He hasn't played in a game in a month while rehabbing from a right ankle injury, and he's been mired in a funk at the plate for more than a year. But during his current hiatus, Utley might have found a flaw in his swing that was related to his injury. If he returns within the next couple of weeks, and shows something offensively, Utley could potentially move to a new team before Sept.

A FEW WEEKS ago, in this very space, I laid my pride aside and revealed a part of me that I never thought I'd have the guts to write about. I did have the guts, however. In fact, I had so much guts it had developed into dad bod. What's dad bod, you ask? Clemson sophomore Mackenzie Pearson, in her college magazine, The Odyssey , explained it this way: "The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, 'I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.' " While rejoicing that my dad bod would never again play second fiddle to Kim Kardashian's butt on Instagram, I explained that I achieved my dad bod with cheesesteaks, one succulent bite at a time.

LAS VEGAS - D'Angelo Russell canceled this weekend's scheduled workout with the 76ers after getting  "real sick," according to a source close to the Ohio State standout. Another source said don't rule out the Sixers securing a workout with Russell in the near future. Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie declined to comment on Russell's canceled workout at the ASM Sports Pro Day at Impact Basketball. However, several pre-lottery mock drafts have the 76ers taking Russell with the third overall pick in the June 25 NBA draft.

The Eagles practiced Thursday with 85 of their 90 players participating in most drills during the third session of organized team activities. Safety Earl Wolff and linebacker Marcus Smith joined quarterback Sam Bradford as the players who were limited by injuries. Guard Evan Mathis has skipped the offseason program, which has been voluntary to date. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor, the team's first-round pick, was absent because of an NFL Players Association event. Wolff is recovering from a knee injury that affected him throughout last season.
