My Thoughts:

Between sitting on the couch with a tub of ice cream and watching TV or going for a mile run outside in the cold, which would you rather pick? We can agree that the latter doesn’t sound as glamorous—being sweaty, pulling on the athletic gear, and being seen in public a state of matter you wouldn’t be caught dead in are all aspects you dread. But in the long run, it could lead to a better mood, a better body, and a more positive outlook on life. Ice cream and TV may benefit you in the moment, but in the long run, neither things  give you an advantage in life. I’ve found ways to make exercise more enjoyable; first was to change my mindset. Next was to find a routine that was beneficial to my body. Most people make the mistake of starting their first day with a fast-paced 10 mile jog, but that ends up being counterproductive. Not only do you begin to fear exercise, but your body would be sore for the next several days. By finding ways to incorporate exercise slowly into my daily routine, I’ve been noticing the effects on my body, temperament, and even work ethic.

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it
GreenMedInfo December 5th 2012 By: Sayer Ji, Founder Calcium deficiency is a common nutritional concern, but how many folks consider the vital importance of magnesium in human health and disease?

 

New research published in the journal BMC Bioinformatics indicates that magnesium's role in human health and disease is far more significant and complicated than previously imagined.

 

While it is well known that all living things require magnesium, and that it is found in over 300 enzymes in the human body, including those enzymes utilizing or synthesizing ATP (the molecular unit of currency for energy transfer), the new study titled, "3,751 magnesium binding sites have been detected on human proteins," indicates that a deficiency of magnesium may profoundly affect a far wider range of biological structures than previously understood.

 

The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures, despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes in the human genome.

 

The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called, adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course of both health and disease.

Most people know that calciul deficiency causes seriously affects bone density but how many actually know that calcium absorption requires the presence of magnesium in the ratio of two to one [Calcium:Magnesium]

 

This is very important article for us in India because none of the calcium supplements contains magnesium in the appropriate ratio and other supplements too are highly deficient in magnesium.

Peter Mellow's curator insight, March 13, 2013 11:10 PM

I've always put Pilates into the Yoga/Feldenkrais/Hellerwork camp. Excellent for flexibility, core strength and muscle tone. However where is the cardiovascular component? Also I have always stressed to only stretch as far as you comfortably can, sometimes I think people are encouraged to go past physical limits of their sedentary body and then have a musculoskeletal injury. Range of motion will develop, but it takes time, just as it took many years of inactivity to lose that flexibility.

Is Your Injury Caused by Pace or Distance? | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Study categorizes the most likely contributor to common running injuries.

 

When many runners ramp up their training, such as when pointing toward a marathon, they increase mileage and intensity simultaneously. This study suggests that if you have knee problems while doing so, you may have upped your mileage too quickly. Conversely, if your knees are fine but your calf, Achilles or plantar fascia start hurting, your body may be okay with your mileage increase, but isn't yet ready to handle the increased intensity.

Alex Warner's curator insight, April 11, 2013 12:18 AM

Interesting that some of our pre-work out routines for so many people have came out to be some bad reasons. Some people over stretch the muscle in your body that is considered your fast twitch muscles. They are the muscles that usually deal with the responce and have fast and strong the responce muscle preforms. Keep in mind that the positive portions sometimes is more positive then negative, but it all depends on how you want to groom your body. Even though stretching has its benefits, there is a moderation on how much to stretch. Just like anything in this world, too much of anything can be bad for you.
