This is a useful restatement of information repeated elsewhere in this scoop.it site, it gathers the points together in one place nicely.

 

If you are a student preparing for an essay this is a good starting point to enhance your understanding. However, in the essay itself you should go to the primary research in journals to support the points made here (even though this piece is written by one of the formost experts on pain and will have co-authored many of th epapers you would want to cite).

The Power Of The Plank

The Power Of The Plank | Fitness and Training | Scoop.it
Planks are a wonderful alternative, as they increase core strength and spinal stabilization while maintaining a neutral spine, thus eliminating the constant flexing and extending of the spinal column....

 

One of the big developments in core training over the recent past is the use of "plank" exercises. As a personal trainer in her 50s who trains many clients in that age range, I for one am a fan of planking for many reasons. But there are also situations in which this is contraindicated, which I'll discuss a bit later. Let's first look at the reasons that planks are recommended.

New body-hack app shortcuts jet-lag recovery

New body-hack app shortcuts jet-lag recovery | Fitness and Training | Scoop.it

A new jet-lag mobile app called Entrain released by University of Michiganmathematicians reveals previously unknown shortcuts that can help travelers entrain (synchronize) their circadian rhythms to new time zones as efficiently as possible.

 

Entrain is built around the premise that light, particularly from the sun and in wavelengths that appear to our eyes as the color blue, is the strongest signal to regulate circadian rhythms. These fluctuations in behaviors and bodily functions, tied to the planet’s 24-hour day, do more than guide us to eat and sleep. They govern processes in each one of our cells.

 

The study, published April 10, 2014, in Public Library of Science Computational Biology (open access journal), relies on two leading mathematical models that have been shown to accurately describe human circadian rhythms. The researchers used these equations and a technique called optimal control theory to calculate ideal adjustment schedules for more than 1,000 possible trips.

 

The app gives users access to these schedules. Start by entering your typical hours of light and darkness in your current time zone, then choose the time zone you’re traveling to and when, as well as the brightest light you expect to spend the most time in during your trip (indoor or outdoor.) The app offers a specialized plan and predicts how long it will you take to adjust.

 

The shortcuts the app offers are custom schedules of light and darkness depending on the itinerary. The schedules boil down to one block of time each day when you should seek the brightest light possible and another when you should put yourself in the dark, or at least in dim light. You don’t even have to be asleep.

 

If you must go outside, you can wear pink-tinted glasses to block blue wavelength light, the researchers say. And if the app prescribes “bright outdoor light” in the middle of the night, a therapeutic lightbox can do the job — yes, its shortcuts sometimes require odd hours.

 

The Entrain app is available now as a free app in the Apple store.
