Standing On Weekdays Burns Calories Equivalent To Running 10 Marathons A Year | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
We’ve already talked a lot about how sitting all day is killing us, but what you might not know is just how good simply standing for a few hours...

Via Peter Mellow
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

In a book on Kaizen, the author gave the example of a lady who started "exercising" by standing up during commercials and eventually wound up walking regularly. Can't remember if she graduated to running, but I've heard of other people who did wind up running after such a small start.

What Is the 'Asian Squat' and Why Can't Everyone Do It?

What Is the 'Asian Squat' and Why Can't Everyone Do It? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

All the way down! Not on your toes!

 

“The squat is a great model for a multi-segmental movement pattern,” [Bryan] Ausinheiler rattled off at the beginning of our phone call.

Via Peter Mellow
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

Good exercise and good for digestive health, according to some experts, the so-called "Asian Squat", nearly impossible for a great many Americans (like me), is quite common in other cultures.

The simple workout that will stop you snoring and improve your sleep

The simple workout that will stop you snoring and improve your sleep | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"While not a cure for those snorers who have physiological conditions such as nasal injuries or enlarged tonsils, the workout will help most to stop or to at least reduce decibel levels. Given the average snore is 60 to 100 decibels, comparable to a household vacuum cleaner, any reduction in volume will be music to tired ears."

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

For a night or two, poor sleep, due to snoring, for example, is mainly an inconvenience. Over time, however, poor sleep, snoring, and even sleep apnea can signal, and actually be, a major health problem. Learn more about sleep at http://nodiet4me.com/sleep/ .
