Maid of the Mist
There really is no better way to experience the power and force of the falls than taking a trip aboard one of the seven Maid of the Mist vessels. Stand along the railings, and be enveloped by the swirling mist and the amazing roar of 600,000 gallons of water per second, plunging over the brink. Be prepared to get wet. You can catch the world-famous ride on either the American or Canadian side. Boardings are every 15 minutes.

The Constant River
Inspired by a view of the Yangtze River at night, this song conjures up images of the city being cleansed by heavy rains which are absorbed by the ever constant but ever changing river. The powerful trumpet melody soaring over the fragile piano part conveys an enduring strength in times of change and loss.

Memory Loss
Sometimes, as you walk through this town it seems as though the street behind you is
disappearing with every step, soon to be replaced by new storefronts and apartment
buildings. This song combines a constantly twisting and turning piano figure underneath a somewhat melancholy melody, reminiscent of an earlier time. The melody ends with force,momentarily defiant before giving way to the moving piano figure once again.

Constricted/Connected
All day rush-hour. Taxi cabs, buses, bikes, and millions of pedestrians all individually fend for themselves amidst the busy subways and streets choked with traffic. There is, at the
same time, an undeniable sense of connection with one another by the drive, the energy, and the fast pace of the city. With only brief moments of respite before being immersed again into the chaos, time intensifies as the events of one’s day flash by.

源源不断的长江
某个晚上对长江的随意一瞥使我有了写这首歌的念头。大雨之后汪洋中的城市,水在城市中恣意的弥漫,汇入永不停息的长江。软弱无力的钢琴衬着有力嘹亮的小号,犹如一股力量随着时间而转变和消减。

失落的回亿
有时候,在这个城市行走,觉得似乎每走过的一步都立即消失在了新造的沿街店面和高耸的住宅区后。钢琴大小调的交替反复和隐隐约约的忧郁曲调缅怀着先前的时光。主旋律在让钢琴重控场面之前,有力而又不甘心地结束了。

限制/连接
一整天的高峰时刻。出租车,公车,自行车,成千上万的行人在繁忙的街道上挣扎着。城市的动力,快速的节奏又似乎把每个人连接。在偶尔的喘息,还没有再一次陷入那些喧闹之前,时光飞逝而过。

INTRODUCTION

Avoir des abdominaux musclés, dessinés et visibles plutôt qu’une brioche arrondie est l’un des objectifs les plus souvent visés par les clients de Coach Randy. Beaucoup pensent d’ailleurs que cet objectif est inaccessible. C’est pourquoi, nous nous sommes attachés à ce que notre première parution concerne ce sujet sensible.

Ce programme est réalisable par tous : quel que soit votre niveau ou votre forme, ces exercices vous seront bénéfiques. Ils ne nécessitent pas de matériel particulier. Vous allez pouvoir vous sculpter des abdominaux et avoir un ventre plat n’importe où, même dans votre cuisine pendant que vos plats mijotent.

CONSIGNES PRINCIPALES

Pour que ce programme soit efficace il n’y a pas de secret … il faut le répéter un maximum de fois dans la semaine. De plus, une alimentation soignée est également de rigueur. En effet, il est impossible d’avoir des carreaux de chocolat en mangeant n’importe quoi !

Afin que ce programme soit encore plus performant, il est important de s’hydrater pendant la récupération (quelques gorgées suffisent). Yoann, votre coach, insiste également sur l’importance de la respiration dans l’efficacité de cet enchaînement : expiration à l’effort, inspiration à la descente. Enfin, contractez bien vos abdos en rentrant votre ventre pour que l’effort soit le plus intense possible et pour que le résultat soit des plus visibles.

Vous pouvez accompagner ce programme par une activité cardio-vasculaire (marche, footing ou, si vous êtes équipés, vélo, rameur, stepper, elliptique, …). Votre bilan final n’en sera que meilleur.

Avant de commencer ce programme, sachez que le simple fait de contracter son ventre le plus souvent possible accroit non seulement la musculature abdominale, mais, en plus, assure un maintien inégalable dans votre posture de tous les jours et évite les douleurs dans le dos.

引言

将胖胖的啤酒肚练成完美有型的腹肌经常是Randy教练的客户们健身的首要目标之一。很多人视此目标为天方夜谭。这也是我们在这里针对这个敏感话题发行这本书的原因。

本健身方案适用于所有人士:无论您的水平和体形如何,您都可以从我们的健身练习中获益。我们的健身方案无需配备任何特别的健身器材。您可以在任何场所平躺练习,甚至在厨房等候菜肴烹饪的时间,您都可以轻松练就一个线条分明的有型小腹。

几条重要的建议

本健身方案的成功无任何秘诀可言......每星期必须坚持多次练习同时配以特定的膳食,营养均衡的饮食对健身可以起到事半功倍的功效。无节制,无选择的饮食习惯会极大程度影响您练就六块傲人腹肌。

为了使本方案更有成效,在运动中应注意补充水分(几口即可)。此外,您的健身教练Yoann强调在练习过程中使用正确呼吸方法非常重要:用力时吐气,反之吸气。最后在整个过程中,一定要始终保持收腹状态,使腹肌持续紧张,这样您的健身效果才能更为显著。

配套此健身方案,您可以选一项心肺有氧运动:如步行、慢跑,如有条件,您也可以选择骑脚踏,划船器,太空步行器或者健美骑士。这些有氧运动可以使您最终的健身效果更卓有有效。

经常收腹不仅有助于腹部肌肉的塑形,也有助于您整体体形的完美,并且还可以减少腰背痛的机率。

Comments from Clients

I have worked with Amanda Zhao for over four years on several translation projects and highly recommend her services. Her level of professionalism, work ethic and commitment to excellence are invaluable. Time and time again she has dedicated herself to going beyond simply translating words, and trans-created all content to ensure the meaning, tone and style are not lost in translation. Additionally, Amanda has a high EQ—she’s a great listener, and is able to effectively navigate cross-culturally. Always a pleasure to work with, I would recommend Ms. Zhao to anyone in need of a professional, timely, accurate translator.

Having Amanda ZHAO translate several of my music related articles as well as liner notes for my record was not only enjoayble, it was a relief. A relief knowing that not only did her background in music greatly help in translating my words, but also a relief in knowing that Amanda really respected the intention of what I had written and was always forthright if anything was unclear to her. Trying to explain the inspiration for a song can be hard enough to put into words in the first place but to then translate such nuanced material?... Very few would have the patience. Amazing work Amanda! Thank you!
