Your exercise performance is a better predictor of longevity than your chronological age It’s often said: It’s not how old you are, it’s how old you feel. New research shows that physiological age is a better predictor of survival than chronological age. The study ispublished today in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, a journal […]Continue Reading ...
A new study published today in the International Journal of Sports Medicine has found that exercise efficiency decreases in recreational cyclists when they pedal very hard, incorporating more revolutions per minute. Elite professional cyclists pedal at a very high cadence, often above 100 revolutions per minute, and they can sustain a very high exercise intensity […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Jan. 23, 2019 — Just a few exercise breaks — or “snacks” — a day can provide significant benefits, a new study says. Specifically, it found that short sessions of intense stair climbing spaced throughout the day can improve heart and lung (cardiorespiratory) fitness. “The findings make it even easier for people to incorporate […]Continue Reading ...
It just got harder to avoid exercise. A few minutes of stair climbing, at short intervals throughout the day, can improve cardiovascular health, according to new research from kinesiologists at McMaster University and UBC Okanagan. The findings, published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism, suggest that virtually anyone can improve their fitness, anywhere, […]Continue Reading ...
Exercise may protect against dementia in part by triggering an increase in the amount of irisin in the brain, says Ottavio Arancio, a professor of pathology and cell biology at Columbia University.Continue Reading ...
A group of researchers from the departments of Physical Therapy, Medicine and Electronic Engineering of Valencia University and from the innovations group ITACA have just published research into physical exercise as a protector against sudden cardiac death. The study has been published in the ‘PlosOne’ journal. The team is comprised by Luis Such-Miquel, Laia Brines, […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Exercise has been touted to build bone mass, but exactly how it actually accomplishes this is a matter of debate. Now, researchers show that an exercise-induced hormone activates cells that are critical for bone remodeling in mice. A study appearing in the journal Cell on December 13 identifies a receptor for […]Continue Reading ...
Research indicates that cutting out specific foods can alleviate the gastrointestinal issues some people experience when they exercise, with over two-thirds of people involved in a new study reporting an improvement. Runners in particular can be susceptible to symptoms which are similar to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Previous research has shown that a low fermentable […]Continue Reading ...
It’s well-known that exercise improves health, but understanding how it makes you healthier on a molecular level is the question researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center are answering. After performing experiments in both humans and mice, the researchers found that exercise training causes dramatic changes to fat. Additionally, they discovered that this “trained” fat releases factors […]Continue Reading ...
Fitness goals are typically at the forefront of new year’s resolutions for many Americans, and a recent study from ASU provides a new way to understand diet and exercise in a more holistic way, and may help us reach those goals. Geologist and isotope chemist, Gwyneth Gordon of the School of Earth and Space Exploration […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 17 2019 Exercise Expert Seeks to Prevent Damage Caused by Restoration of Blood Flow Exercise can protect both muscle and nerves from damage caused by the restoration of blood flow after injury or surgery, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine shows. UVA’s Zhen Yan, PhD, is a top expert on […]Continue Reading ...
According to a large worldwide study, the hormone that is produced in the body during exercise called irisin, can prevent and delay the onset of mental faculty decline and Alzheimer’s disease. The results of the study were published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Medicine. Irisin, a cleaved version of FNDC5. Promotes conversion […]Continue Reading ...
Some of you may have made a New Year’s resolution to hit the gym to tackle that annoying belly fat. But have you ever wondered how physical activity produces this desired effect? A signaling molecule called interleukin-6 plays a critical role in this process, researchers report December 27 in the journal Cell Metabolism. As expected, […]Continue Reading ...
According to a new study, walking or cycling or participating aerobic exercises at least three times a week can improve brain power among the elderly. Along with this regular healthy diet can also improve brain’s capacities and capabilities says the study. The study titled “Lifestyle and neurocognition in older adults with cognitive impairments: A randomized […]Continue Reading ...
