UAAP Season 82: UST Golden Spikers take on home workout challenge

Even with the whole of Luzon under an enhanced community quarantine because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, players of the University of Sto. Tomas men’s volleyball team found ways to keep themselves in tip-top shape. Some of the Golden Spikers posted on their social media accounts videos of them taking on the home workout challenge and how they protect themselves from the dreaded virus.   WEWE MEDINA         View this post on Instagram                   March 17,2020 Workout with mama and cousin ????????

Ang hirap po kasi mapahinga and tumaba and bawas po talaga sa food,” he said. Medina also sees the lockdown as a chance to bond with his family. And what better way to spend time with them than working out together.       “Lockdown po dito sa province namin so lagi lang po kami nasa house and ayun lagi lang pong bonding with them,” said Medina.    JAU UMANDAL UST Golden Spikers home workout challenge Instagram: umandaljoshua pic.twitter.com/UVDtbGd0dm — Mark Escarlote (@fromtheriles) March 18, 2020 The national team member gets a little creative with his workout. In his video, Umandal plays with his cute little cousin while doing lunges. “Pinapangalagaan ko ang sarili ko sa panahon ng COVID-19 through workout. Siyempre pampalakas ng katawan,” said UST’s leading scorer. “Nagti-take rin ng vitamins and kumain ng mga healthy food.”   “Saka palagi kami nag lilinis ng bahay at palagi kami gumagamit ng alcohol para sa safety din naming,” added Umandal. Umandal works out twice a day while binge-watching series on Netflix.   “Ang mga activities na ginagawa ko habang naka community quarantine kami is watching series in Netflix and work out every morning and evening para ma-maintain yung body fat,” he said. “Kasi ‘di naman sure if cancelled ba talaga ang UAAP mas okay na naghahanda ka pa ren kaysa sumabak ulit ng walang kondisyon ang katawan.”   LORENZ SENORON         View this post on Instagram                   Sweat, Smile, Repeat???? A post shared by Lorenz Señoron (@lorenzsenoron) on Mar 17, 2020 at 7:38pm PDT This rookie follows a strict schedule when it comes to his home workout and activities. “What I usually do ngayon nag-stay lang sa bahay. Every morning, 7:00 a.m. workout and pahinga. Have some chill, time watch movies and then at 5:00 p.m. back to workout pa din,” said the very disciplined freshman. “Kasi kahit suspended pa ang UAAP I need to keep myself na kondisyon pa din,” added Señoron. “Para if ever na bumalik na sa training hindi mabibigla ulit at ready pa din sa upcoming games.” To keep safe in these trying times, Señoron follows the government’s directive to stay at home and keeps himself healthy.        “Stay lang palagi sa house para makaiwas sa lugar na maraming tao and proper hygiene, and gamit palagi ng alcohol para ma-sanitize,” said Senoron. “Water lang palagi kong iniinom and of course ‘di pwedeng mawala kumakain pa din ng tama.”   GENESIS REDIDO UST Golden Spikers home workout challenge Instagram: redido.genesis pic.twitter.com/7fghcv3YUl — Mark Escarlote (@fromtheriles) March 18, 2020 UST coaches gave their players a home workout program to follow during the long break. Redido makes sure to follow the workout routine to a tee as well to keep a healthy diet while at home.    “First of all siyempre stay at home. Eat healthy foods. Mag-home workout pa rin kasi may ibinigay naman na program ang coaches,” he said. “Siyempre, bawal pa rin sa matatamis. Kumain lang ng tama.” In between his workouts, Redido spends his time on movie binge-watching or helping out on household chores.     CHARLEE MAGPAYO         View this post on Instagram                   NO EXCUSES!! #homeworkout ???? A post shared by CharlesMagpayo???????? (@charlee_dodds) on Mar 17, 2020 at 8:02pm PDT The Luzon lockdown as well as the suspension of the UAAP Season 82 is not an excuse to slack around. Magpayo makes sure that no time will be wasted while he’s stuck at home in Orani, Bataan.          “Hindi ako makakalabas papunta sa gym kase sarado lahat ng mga barangay so the first thing i do is home workout syempre,” he said. And his weapon of choice: kettlebell When done with his workout, Magpayo is busy with other activities. “Sko ang nagluluto sa amin and inaalagaan ang pamangkin ko,” he said. “Sometimes kapag bored ako nagagawa kong mag-Tiktok and manood ng Netflix, haha!”     Show your school spirit.

Moviegoer: TWO WOMEN

JUST A THOUGHT: Music in the soul can be heard by the universe. —Lao Tzu TWO WOMEN: They were icons in their fields, one in the movie world, the other in lifestyle journalism. They ought to be remembered, not only for the marks they made  in their lifetime, but just as importantly, for the color and vibrancy with which they lived their lives. Here’s hoping the heavens will still make women of their caliber, with that bravura, generosity, and sense of style, with matching humor, in the days to come.    Marichu Vera Perez-Maceda and Ethel Soliven-Timbol, two feisty, accomplished women, died within days of each other this September.      ‘’Manay’’ Ichu, as she was fondly called by all, was 77. Ethel T was 80. Both suffered from lingering illnesses. JOLLY GOOD FELLOW: For all her sophistication and pedigree, ‘’Manay’’ Ichu, industry pillar and heiress to the legacy of Sampaguita Pictures, was the easiest person I have had to deal with in the movie business. Marichu Vera Perez-Maceda She was always casual and jolly in her conversations, and showed genuine interest in the other person. She was simple as she was grounded. In the late 1970s, I joined her on a coverage of a movie her outfit, MVP Productions, was filming in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. On the first day of shoot—the film was “Dyesebel” — early the next morning, the set was filled with young actors and actresses,  either half-naked or in swim suits. Dyesebel herself, Alma Moreno, wore pearly shells on her breast and a fishtail. Ichu surprised everyone by showing up at the beach, wearing high heels and a formal white gown. She said she dressed that way because she wanted to create a happy, glam-filled set. OLD SCHOOL, OLD WORLD:    ‘’Manay’’ Ichu could be playful. She loved to laugh. Tell her a bad joke, and she’ll still laugh for you. I guess that’s her way of showing she cares for you and your presence. Or maybe, she was just being polite. Politeness comes with the territory. Marichu is so old school, so old world, that her death can be compared to the passing of an era, such as the Philippine Commonwealth. They don’t make men and women like them anymore.  People who are gentle, genteel, elegant. To the end, she lived up to the demands of that bygone era she was brought up in. She wrote letters to friends by long hand. Her last letter to me was written in 2019, in which she enclosed a basket of tinapang bangus from Pangasinan. She sent Christmas cards delivered at your doorstep. She wrote sympathy notes when someone dear passes on. She was everything this new world has ceased from being. COLOR IN JOURNALISM: Throughout her lifetime, many couldn’t understand her. She wasn’t a woman for nothing. Ethel Soliven-Timbol, 80, who reigned as Lifestyle Editor of the Manila Bulletin from 1976 to 2007,  was a tough nut to crack. She was feisty, all right, yet she could also be very funny and witty. Ethel Soliven-Timbol She gave color to journalism by speaking her mind, what first came to it, regardless of audience, location, or circumstance. Often, that remark could be biting, which sent people cowering in fear, or in awe. An old school journalist, Ethel demanded perfection from her writers. She screamed over wrong grammar or syntax, swore at PR persons who wrote bad press releases. On a good day, in the middle of editing and closing pages, we would hear her sing out loud, as if she was alone in the big newsroom, nonchalantly. But, that was Ethel, she could get away with most anything. She was queen, after all, and who cared if she couldn’t sometimes hit those high notes? SOFTY SIDE: We, Ethel’s long time colleagues at the Bulletin, also knew the lady’s other side. She could be soft and tender, like the slice of moisty chocolate cake she would offer me in the afternoons when her desk would be flooded with all sorts of pastries and food from everywhere, from people who worshiped at her feet for a square inch of space in her most sought after section.   Dianne Feinstein said, ‘’Toughness doesn’t have to come in a pinstriped suit.’’ Ethel did one better. She dressed elegantly at all times, never forgetting she was one tough lady whose voice was to be taken seriously at all times, whether or not she was joking, or just being her spoiled-little-rich-girl self. Bye, Ethel!.....»»
