Rowing is a discipline that, when done well, looks easy. Like swimming, rowing is a full-body sport, which explains why it can tire you out in minutes. “Because all major muscle groups are involved—legs, back, glutes, shoulders, arms, and abs—each stroke requires a lot of power, and you run out of oxygen very soon,” says Peter Mansfeld, the high-performance head coach at Vesper Boat Club in Philadelphia. Newcomers to the rowing machine, also called an erg, make two main mistakes.
It’s counterintuitive: The thing that should require the least amount of effort (falling asleep) eludes so many of us. Unless you can ditch your responsibilities, escape to nature, and rise with the sun and the roosters, these items can help you re-create the ideal conditions for sleep, even in an urban jungle. 6 Ways to Build Muscle While You Sleep
You probably spend lots of time thinking about, and constantly refining, your workouts. And if you’re going to spend all that time exercising, we’re betting that your diet is dialed in, too. But when was the last time you gave the same kind of consideration to your sleep? If the answer is, “Uh, never,” that’s a problem. Because lack of sleep not only makes you grumpy and drawn-looking, it jeopardizes your heart health, blood pressure, BMI, cognitive abilities, and more.
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".
