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.

AS MUCH AS Brett Brown tries to corral the young minds of his players into staying focused on the remaining four games, starting with tonight when they host the Washington Wizards, it's impossible for thoughts not to drift. Days that don't include travel or an early-morning practice after a game the night before seem heavenly right about now. But if the team is going to look anywhere past the remainder of this season, it's not so much to get away from the rebuild, it's to envision what lies ahead.

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!

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.

It was just like old times for Tim Tebow during organized team activities with the Eagles on Thursday at the NovaCare Complex: It was not very good. Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winner and a two-time college football champion at Florida, showed explosiveness as a runner. But even though Eagles coach Chip Kelly raved about his improvement as a passer before the workout, that was not immediately evident. Thursday was the Eagles' third workout and the first witnessed by the media. At first glance, the new and improved Tebow, who has spent more than a year working on his throwing motion with former major-league pitcher Tom House, looked a lot like the quarterback who completed just 47.9 percent of his NFL passes.

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.

REPORTERS GET their first look today at the 2015 Eagles, when the team briefly opens up organized team activities, as mandated by NFL access rules. Chip Kelly is scheduled to speak, for the first time since the draft wrapup, nearly four weeks ago. Then, reporters will watch workouts, and when the players come off the field this afternoon, everyone is slated to be available, more or less at once, something that will happen only three more times before training camp begins, at the end of July.

IT'S THE SMOKING hot question of the week. Women across the city - and some men, too - have been wondering: Who is the Art Museum Hottie? Is he single? HughE Dillon of Philly Chit Chat kicked the mystery off over the weekend after he photographed the man people were calling the "Art Museum Hottie" on Saturday with his shirt off and muscles bulging. The mystery stranger was doing one-handed pushups and also something called elevated burpees, in which he moved his body from one step to the other while doing the full-body exercise.

The Eagles began spring workouts on Monday, and while Tim Tebow was at the NovaCare Complex after he signed a one-year contract, the team was without Evan Mathis, Mychal Kendricks and Chris Polk. Mathis, who has been the subject of trade speculation and has it made it clear that he wants a new contract, stayed away from the start of workouts and isn't expected to participate any time soon, an NFL source said. The workouts are voluntary, but the left guard was in attendance last year even though he was unsatisfied with his contract situation then and was also on the trading block.

All Ryan Gillyard wanted this past Christmas was a rope ladder and a set of field cones. The 15-year-old St. Joseph's Prep freshman was determined to play Division I college football, and, despite the rigorous workouts he endured at Prep, he wanted to keep doing drills at home. "That's how dedicated he was to football," his mother, Shannon Gillyard, said Saturday. On Saturday, the Upper Darby Township teenager, who had no known previous health problems, collapsed and died during the team's spring conditioning at its Cecil B. Moore Avenue practice field, shocking the closely knit school community.

D ANIEL REARDON, 21, of University City, a senior at Wharton, is co-founder and CEO of Athways, which provides a Web and mobile platform for coaches to create, distribute and track personalized team workouts. It can be used by coaches to bridge the training gap between workout knowledge and execution. Q: How'd you come up with the idea for Athways? A: I was a frosh football player at Penn exposed to strength and conditioning programs. You'd make progress, go home for the summer and get a loose-leaf workout packet that was confusing.
