Guest Editor of Exercise & Fitness

It has always struck me as odd that more people are not up earlier in the mornings, just as the sun is beginning to rise. This time of the day is like a treasure waiting to be opened and explored: it’s when the white mist is gently rising off the dewy grass and pond water of my local park as I run or bike through it...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Coach Robert Dos Remedios

As a coach running dozens and hundreds of athletes through their motions every day, I see a lot of common problems that people tend to have using equipment and doing exercises correctly...

 

Editor´s Note: Coach Dos does a great job of explaining why these ten mistakes can cost you results and precious time. We can all use more time, right? Take his advice and you just might find yourself in better shape and spending more time doing the things you love!

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Love this hilarious video! Anyone who has spent time in a gym has a story to tell of the stereotypical ways men and women exercise – but what if the roles were reversed?

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Dr. Al Sears

Touch your toes without straining your back. Play golf or tennis without waking up the next morning with aching joints. Do the strenuous activities you did when you were younger without pain.

These should be a piece of cake. If they’re not, it’s time to declare war on stiff muscles and joints...

by Kathy Smith

When we hear the word “muscle,” we generally think about the biceps, triceps, glutes and shoulders. But there’s an overlooked area of the body that deserves some much-needed attention: Your feet. Think about it: Your feet are the foundation of your body and your life. Whether you’re an elite athlete or an occasional walker, your feet are responsible for carrying you everywhere you go in life...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This video was originally posted by a former Assistant Editor, Melanie Webb, and is so good it bears reposting. Popular among our readers, it's also one of my favorites.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Penny Hoff

Do you ever agree to do things only because you are assuming that they will never happen?
These promises can vary in severity from agreeing to raise your nephews if anything happens to your sister and brother-in-law, to telling your friend that you will drive her to the airport at 4:30 a.m. if she can't find a ride, to saying you will stay on the PTA board one more year if a replacement for you isn't found. Pre-nuptial agreements also come to mind...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Penny makes the statement that, for her, it’s not so much that she loves to exercise, she loves how it makes her feel after she’s done it. With so much daily stress and so many competing for our attention, exercising because of the way it makes us feel afterwards can be more of a motivation than wanting to lose weight or get toned. She says “exercise is the warm-up” for every other part of our life...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Are you a Type A personality? Perhaps you’re a Social Butterfly…or a Nature Nut…maybe you’re Spontaneous or the Indoor Type or just plain Lazy. Whatever your personality, here’s a humorous and insightful video on matching workouts to suit that inner drive…or lack thereof.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Mariel Hemingway

When I think of climbing I think of silence, peace and challenge. I have not climbed for long… a little over a year, but I have been hiking and loving nature all of my life. My love of the outdoors never ceases to grow in intensity. Nature gives me what people cannot… truth, honesty and unconditional love. It guides with the power of temperature, smell, tastes and sensations that thrill me in and out...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Mountain climbing is an exciting activity to many people because of its physical and psychological benefits. For many climbers, it also becomes a social activity or a meditative experience. Mariel shares how climbing has inspired her and enhanced how she relates to the world around her.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by JJ Virgin

You probably have a friend who spends hours on elliptical machines reading People Weekly and talking with her on-again/off-again boyfriend. She also swears by her gym’s Tuesday night aerobics class as an excuse to hit the new fro-yo place around the corner, since (according to her) she burns 500 calories in this class...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Different than circuit-training or plyometrics, burst-training uses short 30-60 second high-intensity exercise with a slightly lengthier recovery period, usually one-to-two minutes. It’s not easy at first, and not recommended for beginners, but the results are fast and studies are showing that the health benefits are more substantial than just doing regular cardio workouts.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
