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. Two generations later, John Chaney III is trying to make his mark as a gridder, and already has used his skill and character to earn what promises to be the experience of a lifetime. On Aug. 4 at 7 p.m., at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio, a wide-eyed Chaney will be among the witnesses when the Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomes its 2012 inductees.

Boot-camp workouts have been a staple of the fitness scene for some time now. Early boot-camp workouts were typically led by former drill sergeants and drill instructors. Today, some are led by fitness pros with no military background. Nate Griffin, who calls himself "Sgt. Nate," was a member of the Army Reserve for 17 years, where he worked as a medic and attained the rank of sergeant. While he was never a drill sergeant, true drill sergeants often whipped him into shape. During his years in the Army, he became an admirer of high-intensity Ranger training.

WOMEN are waisting away. No, not from starvation. It's something even more surprising - waist training. Women in search of hourglass shapes are foregoing personal comfort and donning supertight, corset-like devices that supposedly whittle their midsections with lasting results. Despite numerous reports that they can bruise internal organs or cause breathing problems, many wearers keep waist trainers on 24/7 - even while exercising and sleeping. The claim is that the practice of waist training - in extreme cases referred to as tightlacing - enhances weight loss by suppressing wearers' appetites and encouraging perspiration.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The Taney players walked onto practice field No. 5 just before 6 p.m. Thursday, less than 24 hours before their first-round game in the Little League World Series. It was the Dragons' first time on a field since Sunday and the final day of four consecutive days off after a wild three weeks of qualifying. The Dragons were limited to using the facility's batting cages the previous two days because of rainstorms. If Taney is feeling any pressure from being Philadelphia's first entry in the Little League World Series, it did not show in the hour-long workout.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - They remain, by far, the most infamous words of Jeffrey Lurie's 20 years as Eagles owner. Gold standard. Those two words have stuck to the man like Gorilla Glue. Eleven years have passed since Lurie uttered that ill-timed and poorly conceived phrase that has been used against him in the court of public opinion. The funny thing is, Lurie's intended message was not that far off base. It's important to point out the entirety of what the Eagles owner said that day in 2003.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Nick Foles' star has risen since he was last on a practice field with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, but he's not yet in Brady's class. So the Eagles' three practices in New England will provide Foles with a chance to further study the future Hall of Famer. "Of course, Tom's one of the best to ever play the game," Foles said. "It's great to watch him and see how he conducts an offense and where he throws a ball. It's great being out here from a learning standpoint.

THOUGH NERLENS NOEL participated only about 45 minutes during the first day of the Sixers' Orlando Summer League minicamp yesterday, he did enough to leave an impression on some of his teammates. Hollis Thompson wanted to test the young defender once during practice and got a rude awakening. Thompson went to leap for a dunk and Noel sent it across the practice gym. Despite being away from playing for a year, it seems as if the No. 6 pick of the 2013 NBA draft is going into Orlando with a full head of steam.

YESTERDAY afternoon, hours before Kyle Kendrick's 89-mph sinker kick-started a four-game series between the Phillies and Braves, Cliff Lee pitched to Tony Gwynn Jr., Cesar Hernandez and Ronny Cedeno. Simulating two innings of play, the Phillies' lefthander threw 20 pitches - both fastballs and breaking balls - took a seat and then tossed 20 more. Afterward, Lee offered a positive review of the session, signifying more progress in his recovery from the elbow strain in his pitching arm that landed him on the disabled list on May 20. This was his first time facing live hitters.

The 76ers apologized to reporters and gave them bottled water and donuts Tuesday, but not access to prospective draft pick Andrew Wiggins. For the second straight day, the 6-foot-8 swingman showed up at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, worked out for the team with the No. 3 pick in the June 26 draft, and left without talking to the media gathered outside the practice facility. Just like Monday, the only glimpse of the former Kansas standout came when he exited the back of the building.

Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins arrived in Philadelphia on Sunday and is expected to work out for the 76ers this week. "I'm excited," Wiggins told Comcast SportsNet at Philadelphia International Airport. Wiggins said he believes the Sixers "fit my style, but I also think Cleveland and Milwaukee do, too. " Wiggins is likely to be one of the top three selections in the June 26 NBA draft. The Sixers have the third and 10th overall picks. The Sixers have auditioned several prospects, but none of the expected top three in the draft: Wiggins, Duke's Jabari Parker, and Kansas' Joel Embiid.
