How’s your back? If you’re like most of us, these last few months of less activity (and more staying in) have meant noticeable aches and pains. Add to that the stress of sleeping on an old mattress and you might find your back in a constant state of discomfort. 

While core exercises are never a bad idea, no amount of Zoom fitness will fix your back if your bed is the root of the problem. Of course now is not the time to visit mattress stores and plop down Goldilocks-style in search of a match. But it IS the

Zion Williamson looks in incredible shape, says he’s focused for restart

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson credits his mother’s wisdom with helping him manage life’s unanticipated twists and inevitable assortment of successes and setbacks.

It has served the NBA’s top overall draft choice well during a highly unusual debut season that has gone nothing like he imagined, yet still holds plenty of promise.

“The last 12 months have been a different experience,” Williamson said Thursday, projecting his typically affable, smiling, easy-going manner during a video conference at the New Orleans Pelicans’ practice headquarters. “My mom tells me, ‘Life is life. You may go through a lot of bad times. You may go through a lot of good times. It’s just: Try to prepare yourself as best as you can.’”

Thursday was an “up” day for Williamson and the Pelicans, at least online, where an image of Zion in the gym had NBA Twitter buzzing.

MA Gyms Work To Make Customers Comfortable For Reopening

BRAINTREE, MA — Gyms in Massachusetts can reopen Monday as phase three of the state’s reopening plan begins amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Gym owners across the state expressed excitement to get back to business, but acknowledged things will not look the same as before they were forced to close in March.

Among those changes, gyms will be required to keep occupancy below 40 percent capacity and sanitize equipment after use. All customers will have to be masked, and various social distancing requirements will be in effect.

Michael Jablonn co-owns a SetPointRX franchise in Braintree. The gym has six locations throughout the state, and Jablonn said though he’s excited for his gym to reopen, there will be some challenges.

How 5 Serious Athletes Are Handling the Coronavirus Mask Dilemma

If someone were to tell you a year ago that you’d be Googling “best mask for running” or “best mask for working out” in the summer of 2020, you likely would’ve looked at them sideways. And yet here we are: face masks have become an essential part of everyday wear for anyone leaving the house. Many states require you to wear a mask in public if you can’t practice social distancing and the CDC recommends it. While it’s not strictly necessary for outdoor activity if you’re able to stay well-distanced from other people the entire time you’re out, lots of times—say, a run somewhere that is even a little bit crowded—that’s not possible.

But here’s nothing fun about covering your face while you’re working out. Breathing while you’re pushing your limits was already hard enough—going hard while breathing through a barrier feels downright impossible. And it’s only getting worse as

As COVID closure drags out, AerialCLT is among the Charlotte gyms trying to hang on

AerialCLT, a Charlotte studio known for its aerial silks and trapeze classes, is teetering on the potential of a permanent closure due to the COVID-19 crisis — but the owner isn’t giving up.

In an Instagram announcement on Tuesday, the studio wrote: “AerialCLT Family, we have had 8.5 years of serving you, our community. It is because of you that we have strived to do our very best to get through the past 3.5 months. With your support, we made it further than we thought we would be able to in the beginning of quarantine. We are still applying for grants, loans, rent forgiveness and any other bits of help. To be clear, we are not giving up. We just don’t know what’s next.”

After North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced that gyms would not be able to reopen in June, the studio announced its — hopefully temporary — closure.

Child activity levels plunging, warn schools, as PE funding campaign gathers pace

Get unlimited access to our expert analysis with a sport-only Telegraph subscription – £40 for 12 months (less than £1 a week)

Activity levels amongst children have “significantly dropped” in the latter stages of lockdown, headteachers have warned, as the Government comes under renewed pressure to guarantee primary school sport funding.

Christine Ohuruogu, the former Olympic, World and Commonwealth 400m champion, and Nicky Butt, the ex-Manchester United and England midfielder, have also added their support to an open letter calling for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help.

Concern centres on the £320 million PE and Sport Premium, which is largely funded by the Sugar Tax, and which the Government has so far refused to guarantee from the next academic year in September.

The Government is expected to respond to the campaign by the end of the week, prompting primary schools across the UK to lay bare a potential crisis in
