I was just talking to a friend about this last night!  Good article here, especially this part:


Combining strength and cardio exercise has multiple benefits

It's not just about burning fat - it's also about building what's underneath. Ladies, this is where all of that talk about beauty comes into play. You can't just strip away a bunch of fat (and a good bit of muscle at the same time) and look healthy. Strength training produces dense, lean, powerful muscle while cardio strips away some of the fat that covers it up. The result? Now you look legitimately healthy!

Wine only protects against CVD in people who exercise

Wine only protects against CVD in people who exercise | exercise | Scoop.it

Wine only protects against cardiovascular disease (CVD) in people who exercise, according to results from the In Vino Veritas (IVV) study presented at ESC Congress 2014.

IVV is the first long-term, prospective randomised trial comparing the effect of red and white wine on markers of atherosclerosis. The study included 146 people with mild to moderate risk of cardiovascular disease. Participants were randomised to one year of moderate consumption of red (Pinot Noir) or white wine (Chardonnay-Pinot) from the same year and wine region of the Czech Republic.

Moderate consumption was the World Health Organization definition of 0.2 L for women and 0.3 L for men, a maximum of five times a week. The primary endpoint was the level of HDL cholesterol at one year. Participants consumed their usual diet.

The researchers found that there was no difference between HDL cholesterol levels at the beginning of the study compared to one year in either the red or white wine groups. LDL cholesterol was lower in both groups at one year while total cholesterol was lower only in the red wine group.: "The only positive and continuous result was in the subgroup of patients who took more exercise, which means regular exercise at least twice a week, plus the wine consumption. In this group HDL cholesterol increased and LDL and total cholesterol decreased in the

red and white wine groups. There may be some synergy between the low dose of ethyl alcohol in wine and exercise which is protective against CVD."

American patients often seize the results of population based dietary studies and often take them out of context.  French populations drink more red wine and have lower rates of cardiovascular events so Americans may add wine to their diet without considering the many other potential contributors to the good outcome.  The French ,in addition to consuming more red wine. also exercise more, eat less processed foods, have lower rates of obesity and eat less fast foods and snack less.  False conclusions are often made also made about fish eating populations such as Eskimos.

The IVV study brings to light these other important added contributors to health.

Donovan Baldwin's curator insight, September 1, 2014 11:43 AM

Interesting article. I have always said that most of these things, supplements, red wine, massage, weight loss products, diet pills, whatever...would probably only have a significant effect if they were a part of a healthy lifestyle, which includes exercise, nutrition, and rest.

What Weightlifting For Just 20 Minutes Does To Your Brain

What Weightlifting For Just 20 Minutes Does To Your Brain | exercise | Scoop.it
You may be surprised by what a quick workout session can do for your brain.

It's no secret that weightlifting is good for you -- from building muscle tissue to relieving stress -- but now a new study on brains and brawn suggests that going hard in the gym for as little as 20 minutes can boost your long-term memory by around 10 percent.

“Our study indicates that people don’t have to dedicate large amounts of time to give their brain a boost,” study leader Lisa Weinberg, a graduate student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said in a written statement. Just check out a video describing the study above.

Sorry about the two popup ads that come up when you access this.  I would not post it if I didn't think it is good info. 


How many calories we burn during weight training is a common and tough question.  I like the approach Nicole and Jen Mueller take on this article:


Be conservative and know what the research is telling us.

7 Simple Exercises That Undo the Damage of Sitting

7 Simple Exercises That Undo the Damage of Sitting | exercise | Scoop.it

 "If you’re like most men living and working in a techno-service economy, you probably spend a good deal of your day sitting down. You go from the kitchen table to your desk at work to your chair in front of the TV. But as we’ve discussed before, spending most of your waking hours planted on your keister is terrible for your health."

 

You’ve probably experienced those moments when you get up from a sitting position and your butt feels numb and your hips feel so tight that you have to lean forward at the waist just to walk. Excessive sitting leaves your hips and legs tight and your glutes inactive. Even after you stand up, the ill effects of sitting stay with you and may prevent your butt muscles from firing at an optimal level when you really need them – like when you suddenly need to chase down a purse snatcher!

It's never too late to start exercising. When they try to close the lid on the coffin, see how many times you can push it back up. Okay, maybe that's TOO late, so why not start now?
