Simple: If you want to live longer, get aerobic.

So true, the food industry for the most part, are very dishonest.  It is getting harder and harder to find foods that are not genetically modified or right full of sugar.  Not only should you read the labels, you should understand them.  I Google a lot of the ingredients if not familiar with them.

HEALTH BRIEF | Aerobic Exercise Key To Banning Belly Fat

HEALTH BRIEF | Aerobic Exercise Key To Banning Belly Fat | Aerobic Health |

March 2012


Looking to get rid of that spare tire or paunch? Then it’s time to get your heart pumping.


A study in the American Journal of Physiology found that aerobic activity burned 67 percent more calories than resistance training, such as weight-lifting. The eight-month Duke University Medical Center study followed 196 overweight, inactive adults who either performed aerobic exercises equivalent to jogging 12 miles a week or did 3 sets of 8 to 12 weight-lifting repetitions, 3 times a week. The researcher discovered that aerobic exercise greatly reduced liver fat and deep-lying abdominal fat, called visceral fat, which increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. The aerobic activity improved insulin resistance, triglyceride levels and liver enzymes, risk factors for disease, while the resistance training didn’t.


Your best bet? Aim for a balanced exercise regimen that incorporates weight-training, which can improve your strength and build lean muscle, and aerobics.

Exercise: a surprising way to improve working memory in children, adults and the elderly

Exercise: a surprising way to improve working memory in children, adults and the elderly | Aerobic Health |

The Brilliant Report: There is one surprising but well-supported way to improve executive function in both children and adults, however: aerobic exercise. A just-published review of the relevant research, appearing in the journal Psychonomic Bulletin and Review, concludes that "ample evidence indicates that regular engagement in aerobic exercise can provide a simple means for healthy people to optimize a range of executive functions." Drawing on that article, here are some of the benefits of exercise for executive function, as found in three different populations:

Annie Murphy Paul writes:

"School-aged children. Studies of kids have found that regular aerobic exercise can expand their working memory—the capacity that allows us to mentally manipulate facts and ideas to solve problems—as well as improve their selective attention and their ability to inhibit disruptive impulses. Regular exercise and overall physical fitness have been linked to academic achievement, as well as to success on specific tasks like safely crossing a busy street while talking on a cell phone (note to concerned readers: the street in the experiment was virtual).

Young adults. Executive functioning reaches its peak levels in young adults, and yet it can be improved still further with aerobic exercise. Studies on young adults find that those who exercise regularly post quicker reaction times, give more accurate responses, and are more effective at detecting errors when they engage in fast-paced tasks in the lab.  

Older adults. Research on older adults has found that regular aerobic exercise can boost the executive functions that typically deteriorate with age, including the ability to pay focused attention, to switch among tasks, and to hold multiple items in working memory. One such study assigned older adults to three one-hour sessions of exercise a week for six months, scanning participants' brains before and after the six-month period; the scans showed "significant increases in gray and white matter volumes" in areas of the brain associated with executive control."

Walking is a natural attitude adjustment. Although I'm wondering why the Mayo Clinic didn't include massage as a companion activity? Walking paired with massage is a definite winner!

Crossfit Training

CrossFit is an intense exercise program featuring dynamic exercises like plyometric leaps, as well as Olympic lifts when using non-traditional weight training equipment for example kettlbells, sand-bags, suspension systems or even water-filled implements. The program is structured in such a way that participants are challenged to do a particular number of repetitions in a workout in a specific time frame; the more advanced CrossFit participants will actually compete against each other to discover how quick they can complete the daily workout and post their results for the CrossFit web page. Due to the intensity and explosive muscle action of the exercises in a CrossFit workout, there are many benefits for the average exercise aficionado; however , the intensity of the exercises which deliver the benefits could also boost the risk of injury if not done correctly. Before beginning a CrossFit system, work with a personal trainer to learn the best way to perform the actual movements required for the workout. An individual should first develop necessary joint mobility as well as joint stability to learn the best way to effectively carry out hip hinge, squat, pressuring, pulling as well as rotating actions. The actual explosive as well as plyometric exercises in a CrossFit workout require rapid widening and shortening connected with muscles so if a participant does not take the time to acquire the necessary versatility and movement skills first, the actual joints might not allow a full range-of-motion which could affect muscle tissue and cause an injury. The numerous benefits of CrossFit schooling are due to the intensity of the exercises. High intensity, power-based exercises are effective with regard to burning a high number of calories in a short period of time while at the same time improving aerobic health and fitness and promoting the actual anabolic hormones for example testosterone, and HGH which are responsible for muscular growth and can actually have an anti-aging effect. CrossFit is a great workout program and is a great way for any experienced physical exercise enthusiast to add much-needed intensity and diversity in order to his or her system; however , it is not necessarily a recommended program for people just starting to exercise or even returning after a long hiatus. It is highly recommended to work with an individual trainer as well as develop the necessary mobility, stability as well as movement skills before progressing to some challenging CrossFit workout.
