Favre feats Weight training improves pitcher's performance DR. PAUL DONOHUE North America Syndicate 3/29/98 01998 Los Angeles limes Syndicate ANSWERS TO TODAY'S PUZZLE ARE ON PAGE B2. Dear Dr. Donohue: I need some help. I pitch for my high school. What's a good way to improve my throwing? — T.L. Dear T.L.: Throwing a ball entails a chain of movements. It begins with the feet, progresses to the legs, then to the torso, and finally to the shoulder, arm and hand. About half of ball-throwing force comes from rotation of the trunk. Probably the best way to improve throwing speed is through weight training for the entire body. Squat exercises are good for the legs. Twisting abdominal exercises are important for the trunk. In one such exercise, you lie on the floor with hands locked behind your head. Bend your knees. Rotate your right elbow to your left knee, then your left elbow to your right knee. Ballistic exercises are important. With a partner, practice standard medicine-ball tosses to one another, releasing the ball as quickly as you can. If you can find a slightly overweight baseball, devote some time to pitching it. Dear Dr. Donohue: Now that the weather is turning warm, I'm about to start my jogging program. Every year, however, I get foot blisters, which come and go all spring and summer. How can I avoid this curse? — P.O. Dear P.G.: Blisters form when the outer skin layer — the epidermis — slides back and forth over the deeper skin structures, which are more tightly anchored. A cleft between the layers of skin develops and fills with fluid. If you can sufficiently reduce friction between the layers of skin, blisters won't develop. Look to your shoes. There should be a thumb-width space between your big toe and the front of the shoe. Don't throw away old shoes when you buy a new pair. New shoes need a breaking-in period of about two weeks. Wear the new shoes for an hour the first few days and gradually increase wearing time during the next two weeks. Next, look to your socks. Polypropylene or other synthetic fiber wicks moisture away from the feet. Wet feet encourage blister formation. Before running, spray the bottom of your feet with an antiperspirant containing aluminum hydroxide. If a blister forms, keep its roof intact. Clean the blister with alcohol. Heat a straight pin to sterilize it. Let the pin cool and then puncture the blister to drain the fluid. Cover the blister with a bandage. Dear Dr. Donohue: What is an "abdominal crunch"? I hear it's the best exercise for stomach muscles. — P.P. Dear P.P.: Crunches are excellent exercises for abdominal muscles. Lie on the floor with knees fully bent. Raise your back and head off the floor to a point where the shoulder blades clear the floor. IN THE HOME assists insurance adjusters List of possessions irnportant in case tragedy strikes home - If your house was hit by a tornado and you had to make a list of your possessions, could you do it? X Tornado season & is approaching for Kansas residents, but a fire can happen any time. Wrien tragedy strikes, your insurance adjuster will ask* you to compile a*list of what you rm^e lost so the insurance company e$n pay your $aim. In the event oj a burglary, the police will also rieqd to know what 1 Was taken. "To recover stolen items, settle insurance claims, or possibly take an income tax deduction for casualty or theft losses, it is important to have a detailed list of what was lOst, proof of ownership and docu- ntehtation of value of items. "Prepare now for a possible loss by "making a household inventory. f4 household inventory is basi- eidly an itemized list of household fUpnishings, equipment and other gersonal possessions. r-Several methods can be used MARY LOU ODLE KSU-Saline County Extension Agent- Family and Consumer Sciences when developing a household inventory. Each has advantages and disadvantages. A combination of several methods may be most effective in establishing loss, ownership and value. Whatever method you choose, develop the inventory room by room. Start at one point and go around the room listing and photographing or video taping each large item and area. Be sure to open closet doors and drawers. Don't forget the attic, basement, garage and workshop. Pictures and detailed listing are especially important for unusual or expensive items. Close-up pictures of special collections, paintings, silver, jewelry and antiques are recommended. If an item is extremely valuable, consider having a member of the family in the picture as additional proof of ownership. Group small pieces such as jewelry and silver on a plain tablecloth or other solid background. If the brand, pattern, manufacturer or other information on the items is important to establish ownership or value, be sure that information is readable in the picture. For possessions most subject to theft, such as bicycles, audio and video equipment, power tools and musical instruments, you may want to engrave an identifying number on them. This is especially important where serial num- bers can be easily removed. Make a list of brand names and serial numbers for electronic equipment, televisions and microwave ovens. If items are found after a theft, you will be asked to provide proof of your ownership. Make a notation on the inventory of dates items were purchased. Check your insurance policy or with your agent to determine if you have replacement coverage for personal household property or current value coverage. Replacement coverage means you will receive insurance money to replace your lost item with a similar new item. Current value coverage generally allows you money to cover the replacement cost less depreciated value of items. Also check the limits of coverage on an- "I don't have time right now."

I rollerblade about eight miles in 50 minutes almost every day. I also do the same on a bike. About how many calories am I burning? — C.R. Dear C.R.: Rollerblading a distance of eight miles in 50 mlnutfes burns roughly 270 calories. Biking at a speed of five miles an hour burns 200 calories in SO minutes. If you eventually pick up the pace to tl miles an hour, you'd be burning 400 calories.

You may want to purchase special coverage for certain items through a rider on your policy or a separate policy. What perils does your insurance cover? Most homeowners or renters policies do not cover damage and loss from floods. If your washer hose comes loose and floods your basement, you may be covered, but if water comes in from outside, you must likely are not covered. Be sure you know what coverage you have. Make several copies of your inventory and store one copy in a safety deposit box. A second copy can be kept at home, and perhaps a third copy should be given to a family member or good friend to store. Holuit I iol».nuis 1307 S. Santa Fe Diana I lobcnius Just in for Easter!
