Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Any cyclists out there? If you or a close friend cycles you've probably heard - or said - these things before and thought nothing of it. It wasn't until I casually mentioned that I'd 'bonked' (pardon my french all you Brits) after a long hot ride and was met by blank stares that I realized I was speaking a dialect. Check out this short video, you're sure to gain at least a few corny conversation starters next time you sit down across the table from a cyclist while speed dating!

Over the last 20 - 30 years there would have be literally thousands of diet plans and programs available in bookstores, television infomercials and on the internet. Many of these reduce food intake to a point where the body goes in a protective mode called the 'starvation mode'...

With months of warm weather and sunny days ahead, there is no better time to develop a running habit. If you have never run a step, or have been away from your trainers for a few too many seasons, have no fear. Getting to know, and love, running is a simple matter of making a plan, suiting up, and putting one foot in front of the other. To make it even easier, I’ve included a sample plan for a ten week progression. Follow this to go from 0-30 (minutes!)...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Have a gym membership that’s gathering dust? Here are a few of the high tech fitness gadgets I like that just may be fun and effective enough to get you moving or kick your workout to the next level. Techs Appeal’s, Jennifer Jolly, gives tips on how to determine which gadget will work for you whether your goal is weight loss, physical fitness, or better athletic performance. My favorite is Striiv which blends mobile gaming with exercising and includes a way to donate your steps to various charities.

Holistic exercise may sound confusing. Basically, holistic means combining exercise that helps develop your body and mind. For instance, a gentle exercise routine that combines stretching, visualization, breathing techniques and meditation is considered to be a holistic exercise...

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Any cyclists out there? Whether your groove is an indoor spin class with your favorite instructor and killer music; on Utah's spectacular slick rock; or out on the roads in California wine country like me this weekend (I know, life is rough), most of us want to know how to get more power out of our peddle stroke. Here's an interesting analysis of what phase of the stroke each muscle is most active.

One of my favorite cartoons features a squirrel lying on a psychiatrist’s couch, and the squirrel says something like, “Since discovering that you are what you eat, I realized I was nuts.” When you recognize that despite all of your mental refinement you’re still an animal engineered to move, it becomes obvious that lying around can also make you nuts. Brain chemistry goes south when you can’t work off stress, and your mood becomes more negative . . . hostile, depressed, or anxious...

ATH Guest Editor of Exercise & Fitness

There’s no doubt about it… our culture and media place way too much importance on being thin. Sure, it feels good to look in the mirror and delight at your svelte figure but healthy weight management is important for a variety of reasons, including warding off disease and staying healthy. However, let’s also not forget the power of being strong and building muscle...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Psychologists state that for various reasons our society is getting increasingly angry. There are many methods to healthily release and transform this toxic emotion. Fitness expert, John Basedow, shares how exercise helped him with anger management in ways other than just feeling the rush of endorphins, our body’s natural feel-good chemicals.

Like medicine, exercise can have its negative side effects. I know! Hard to believe that something we’re doing for our health has aspects that are physically detrimental, but, the fact remains that, just like pharmaceuticals, there’s a trade-off you have to deal with whether you like it or not...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Repetitive motion injuries can occur in ways other than playing tennis, computer work, or playing golf. Biking, treadmill walking, and abdominal exercises can all contribute to repetitive motion injuries. If you tend to exercise the same way most of the time and have developed pain that medical professionals can’t locate the source, but have ruled out anything serious, read Katy’s article...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Doing the same workout over and over can leave us in a mental and physical rut. If you’re looking for something to shake things up a bit, fitness expert, Andrea Metcalf, has some suggestions. While two of her suggestions, Zumba and Yoga, may seem passé, the rest may surprise you. And the two standard suggestions she gives? Many people still don’t know about the Zumba craze… hard to believe I know. And, when polled, most people think of yoga in the popular hatha tradition, but there are many styles of yoga to choose from. If you’re looking for a different yoga style, this article can lead the way.

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...
