When delicate hands pull trucks in lichtenfels

When four delicate female hands pull a powerful truck, a miracle has happened. This was the miracle experienced by the spectators at the trucker festival on sunday at the schutzenanger in lichtenfels. The "pink sock" clinic clowns and "kaala" easily moved the 8.5 ton ungetum with 460 hp at the finale of the competition "pull the strolch".

They didn’t win, but the hearts of the many captains of the landstrabe. Half a dozen of them pushed the colossus with hannah benjamin at the wheel, initially invisible to the public. This is how the clinic clowns explain the miracles they perform again and again when they visit the seriously ill.

The competition was decided by the "seven dwarfs" from fulda for himself with 25 seconds over a distance of 50 meters. Also the local teams, among them the strong women and men of the organizer "franken-strolche", achieved respectable performances.

Why the inner pig dog is also important

Why the inner pig dog is also important

"I also eat a schnitzel once in a while", defends itself one against the statement that the "fit life-style" some people’s nerves. No one has to justify himself for living a healthy life. "With fries!" Is good. But it’s just as okay to let your inner bastard win out now and then. It protects us from making an ideology out of food and exercise, from subordinating everything to the pursuit of a better, healthier, happier self.

No fitness stress!

"You don’t have to be perfect." Nadine schlaug got to the heart of the matter when she spoke a few weeks ago in our series "fit in franken" tells how she managed to lose 20 kilos. Model-mabe has it nevertheless not. Does not want them either. She wants to feel good – and the feel-good weight originates in the head. Fitness is the basis for a good life, it should not be a stress factor. "People are confronted with completely different stresses and strains every day, family and work are in the foreground, sport runs alongside", explains sports psychologist heiko ziemainz from the university of erlangen. The point is to actively recover, to relax from everyday life.
Anyone who tried out some of the tips on sports and nutrition during the eight weeks of the fitness series, who exercised and had fun, won – even if the fitness goal set in week one was not quite reached and the pig dog sometimes had the upper hand. No need to reproach yourself and resign yourself! "If you haven’t reached your goal, you should just set a new one", ziemainz says. If it did not work out to lose as many kilos as planned, if the increase in performance turned out to be less than hoped for – it will work out in the next run-up. Just be a little more relaxed with it!

Active relaxation

Fitness doesn’t work without rest and relaxation. Anyone who has problems with this can learn it systematically. The appropriate courses are often even subsidized by the health insurance companies. "However, not everyone is amenable to every method", says bamberger sports therapist julia derbfub. She has made the experience, that mannerists for example have problems with fantasy or mental journeys. A method that, according to derbfub, works for most people is progressive (sectional) muscle relaxation. The muscles are first tensed up and then loosened up. For example, you can start by clenching your hand into a fist – hold the tension and then suddenly relax the muscles. The exercise is repeated several times, then the next largest muscle group is the forearms and upper arms, then the neck, back and so on, until even the fibers are relaxed. "It is physiologically easy to relax if you have previously tensed the muscles", explains thebfub. With regular practice, the method also helps to relax in everyday situations.

Rent arrears, unpaid bills?

Review: more than a year ago gernot brecht, who owns the fitness chain "fit4topbody announced plans to set up a club in the former showrooms of the mobel pletl company. Nothing came of it. Why? Brecht explains that managing director birgit lorenz-pletl demanded that he adjust his opening hours to those of the mobelhaus. This is an unding, he already explained a long time ago. What birgit lorenz-pletl now denies. "His times had been completely independent of us."

Karstadt denies: jennings did not threaten to cut jobs

Karstadt denies: jennings did not threaten to cut jobs

The "spiegel" newspaper refers to a meeting with management rates at which jennings made it clear that there was no alternative to withdrawing from the collective bargaining agreement. If the warehousing group had to pay the upcoming wage increases this year and next, another 800 to 1,000 full-time jobs would have to be cut in return, the boss is said to have threatened. "Jennings was not threatening," a karstadt spokesman explained. Jennings had said that cutting jobs was wrong and not the right business decision.

After the saarland food retailer globus, karstadt is the second gross employer within a short time to leave the flat collective agreement. The essen group is switching to a membership without collective bargaining obligations with the employer associations. He wants to continue to apply the collective bargaining agreements currently in force for his 20,000 or so karstadt employees, but he wants to avoid wage increases.

Karstadt announced at the beginning of the week that it would take a two-year "tariff break" to bring the company back to full health.
