Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: There's a transformative energy about loss and defeat that can be used to fuel our motivation to get up and keep moving. Maybe you didn't make it to the gym or on that morning walk yesterday. Maybe you pigged out on ice cream. Perhaps you got fired standing up for something you knew was right. Whatever it was, it's in the past. But you can take that hurt and disappointment and channel it into this moment, this workout, this game, whatever the situation may be. Come back untouchable.

by Kathy Smith

Though I’m not crazy about the term, we’ve all heard of “cankles,” the unfortunate nickname for a woman’s ankle area when it lacks a certain desired shape. But recently I stumbled across an article discussing another body concern, something they dubbed “kninkles,” or above-the-knee wrinkles – and the sagging knee fat that accompanies it...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I’ve always advised clients to do compound movements or multi-faceted movements for more effective and efficient results. For a limited time, All Things Healing readers can get Kathy’s Matrix Method DVD, showcasing her matrix of using the face of a clock, at a special price.

Fast walking is great cardiovascular exercise — it gets your heart pumping and works your muscles. But it can also be hard on your shins, and even cause painful shin splints. Luckily, strengthening your shins can help protect them...

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: In celebration of World Peace Day, this week I've highlighted the work of Dr. Wallace "J." Nichols. My earlier post this week was a conversation about how we can stay connected to the planet. Now you can see he and his family in action. In this video you'll see them in action on their 1,200 mile trek along the Oregon and California coastline. Think exercising in nature is over-rated? You might want to check out this video.

ATH Asst. Editor of Exercise & Fitness

Throughout history many of the people I've admired have taken very long walks. Cultures around the world hold their pilgrimages in high regard. Our bodies are exquisitely designed for walking. But in modern times few people take more than a stroll around the block. We thought it might be good to walk 1,000 miles. And it was...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Critical to having peace on the planet is having peace and a relationship with the planet itself. I met Dr. Wallace "J." Nichols on a kayaking trip while in Catamaco, Mexico as part of a delegation to improve adventure tourism in Mexico. Ours is a campaign to tell the untold story of Mexico. "J." is a man who tells the story of the ocean in a way that makes you want to run for the closest body of water and dive right in!

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: When was the last time you went outside to play? I hiked the infamous Subway in Zion National Park last week with a group of new friends. After about 7 miles of navigating through undulating slot canyons and swimming through frigid pools of water we arrived at a spectacular natural rock slide in the sun. Naturally, our next move was to stop and play like little kids at the water park. How can you find more ways to use exercise and fun in the same sentence?

My son, Alex, has cerebral palsy. He has suffered through multiple brain surgeries, meningitis, and countless other complications as a result of his premature birth. As Alex approaches his fifth birthday, I am amazed at how he has instinctively begun to use running to reduce the frustrations of his life...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Do you want to raise a healthy, happy child? Get them exercising! Runner Nicole Schmidt tells how exercise has become a key component in the treatment of her son Alex, who was born with brain damage. If running can do that for Alex, imagine what it can do for a child - and an adult - with a healthy brain.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: How long can you hold plank position? Is it time to progress? Bump up the intensity with plank up down's.

Remember when you were in elementary school, and learning about the planets was exciting? So far 2012 has been full of astronomical happenings – the Mars rover just landed in Gale Crater; the first of three eclipses occurred in May; the transit of Venus moved like a speck across the Sun...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: When was your last outdoor fitness vacation? This article captures one of my 'morning musings,' times when I'm outside exercising and Mother Nature shares her wisdom with me. May we all have more of them!

If that headline caught your attention, chances are good you’ve battled with “bat wings,” or upper body flab, or a little extra jiggle in your wave. Well, it’s time to change all that, once and for all. It’s time to embrace your arms...

Exercise & Fitness


by Jenn Schwartz

Silent Training is a perspective as well as part of a vigilant planning process.  Silent Training is the intent to manipulate your physiology to create positive health results.  One very important factor in Silent Training is that exercise by itself is only a part of the continuum. My last post covered sleep as a huge factor in the success of an exercise or training program...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Just this morning I was explaining to a client that the body perceives exercise as a stressful event. Imagine our caveman ancestors chasing down their next meal or fleeing from a predator. Running was a do or die situation, not something with the reward of a medal, personal best time, or lifetime accomplishment.

by Penny Hoff

I am a fitness writer and if you read my rants with any regularity, you know that they are irregular in a consistent way: I tend to filter everything I see in my daily life through the filter of fitness. Fitness can be a metaphor for just about anything in life, especially if you are slightly optimistic like me...

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...
