Learning to learn: a series on hacking your own brain

Learning to learn: a series on hacking your own brain | Exercise | Scoop.it
I recently partook in a discussion among some fellow community managers on the best ways to learn about the industry and how to train its future generations.
Stephen Duncan's insight:

For all my iPhone and iPad apps they just dont cut it when it comes to remembering what to do and esp for learning information to feedback to clients. A few handwritten notes and it sticks alot better than from an email or the screen. Of course the impact of learning as a child and throughout countless university lectures may have grooved this thought process.

How Exercise Benefits the Brain

New research suggests that surges in a brain protein after exercise may play a particular role in improving memory and recall.

Stephen Duncan's insight:

Wouldnt it be nice to see research like this used to promote the benefits of exercise in the areas of rehab and anti-aging instead of drugs being the first port of call?

A new running shoe aimed to prevent lesions and improve training management

A new running shoe aimed to prevent lesions and improve training management | Exercise | Scoop.it

From the 80 million European runners, more than 37 million have suffered a running injury during sport practice in the last year. The Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV) is working on the design of a new running shoe that integrates a measuring device that will provide training control and prevent injuries during running.

The device will consist of a microelectronic measurement system, capable of gathering and transmitting the athlete’s main biomechanical parameters. The information will be wirelessly transmitted to the runner’s mobile phone, where an application will inform him or her in real time about the planned activity and the performance achieved until that moment.

The mobile phone application can also integrate additional worthy information provided by other commercial devices currently used by runners such as heart rate monitors or GPS positioning provided by smartphones.

I totally agree but I also believe that it depends on the individual and their situation
Rehabmyheart's comment, September 26, 2012 8:09 AM
I agree with your Kirk it depends on the situation some people are limited in the AM with health issues, or time constraints.

Regular, moderate exercise does not worsen pain in people with fibromyalgia

For many people who have fibromyalgia, even the thought of exercising is painful. Yet a new study shows that exercise does not worsen the pain associated with the disorder and may even lessen it over time.

Stephen Duncan's insight:

For many health conditions a recipe for successful management is a combination of diet, exercise, stress reduction and therapeutic supplementation. Hopefully this article helps reinforce that exercise can be an important tool for those suffering from fibromyalgia.

Aerobic exercise reduces oxidative stress and improves vascular changes of small mesenteric and coronary arteries in hypertension - Roque - British Journal of Pharmacology - Wiley Online Library

Aerobic exercise reduces oxidative stress and improves vascular changes of small mesenteric and coronary arteries in hypertension - Roque - British Journal of Pharmacology - Wiley Online Library | Exercise | Scoop.it

I am no longer a fan of aerobic exercise (normally meaning long duration and at a pace that matches oxygen uptake). We are all different, have different stressors and different capacities to cope. But most of all it has been over-used and largely not very effective for fat loss.

Oxidative stress is basically the speed with which we rust on the inside, it is our antioxidant to free radical balance. The more stress, the more damage, the more free radicals created and the greater need for antioxidants to help combat the damage and begin the repair job.
