Halle Berry 's ultra-strong muscles have helped earn her superhero street cred—after all, filming action movies is a physically demanding job, so getting in shape for them requires a lot of work. Even though she's hung up her Catwoman suit, her fitness game has remained pretty impressive—and she's even encouraging her fans to get moving, too. This week, Berry took to Instagram to post a sweet message about starting to work out , and she shared one of her favorite core exercises to try, too.
The great paradox of exercise is that muscles get stronger by breaking down first—the rebuilding process after a workout is where the real magic happens . Sometimes, that can leave your muscles feeling a little sore and achy, which is totally normal (albeit, uncomfortable). But there's normal sore, and then there's too sore. I'm talking about that wincing-in-pain, what-have-I-done, I-can't-move kind of soreness that lasts for days.
Even if you had the best intentions for your fitness New Year's resolution or workout goals, let's face it: Sometimes life gets in the way, and staying on track to reach a big, long-term goal is easier said than done. And hey, that's totally OK—goals can and should be re-evaluated as you figure out what's sustainable for your life.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
