Pushups

Pushups can help tone your arms, and when done as part of HIIT training can give you maximum benefits in minimal time. Start with your body propped up by your feet and your hands shoulder-width apart. Push down and bend your arms into a 90 degree angle and then push back up to straighten your arms. If holding your body up is too difficult, drop down to your knees for a modified pushup.

Drowning: How to Respond

It's critical to get the person breathing again as soon as possible.

Drowning can happen quickly. Three children die every day from drowning, and most fatal incidents happen from lack of appropriate supervision. Every minute that passes is critical in saving them or preventing serious injury. Here's what to do if you see someone drowning and you need to help rescue them.

Call 911

You should alert emergency responders as soon as possible. If there are other people around, instruct someone to make the call. If you are alone, help the drowning person until you can give CPR for one minute and then call 911 yourself (then continue life-saving measures).
