I can't tell you how excited I am to be feeling a cool breeze in the mornings when I walk Zoe. The running mornings are almost here! It's been MONTHS since I've run and I am itching to get back in the groove. I'm also a bit nervous about starting over...

Recently I was asked, "Will exercise make my skin look younger? What are the benefits of exercise with regard to the skin's appearance?" We usually think of exercise in terms of losing weight, building muscle or creating six-pack abs. Consider, however, that our skin is the largest organ of the body and exercise can have huge benefits.

True, biomechanical stillness requires every one of your 600+ muscles to be active, precisely at the same time.  This time-sensitive coordination requires muscle tissue to be precisely at the same (relative) length to maximize the current of electrical communication...This unmoving stability not only requires the greatest amount of sensory input, it also allows for the greatest sensory input...

As you consider starting an arthritis exercise program, understand what's within your limits and what level of exercise is likely to give you results. Exercise is crucial for people with arthritis. It increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue. Of course, when stiff and painful joints are already bogging you down, the thought of walking around the block or swimming a few laps might make you cringe. You don't need to run a marathon or swim like an Olympic competitor to help reduce the symptoms of your arthritis. Even moderate exercise can ease your pain and help you maintain a healthy weight. When arthritis threatens to immobilize you, exercise keeps you moving. Not convinced? Read on.

I’m lucky. I’ve always believed in myself - even now when I feel insecure and have doubts. When I was younger, I was told I was less by those who mattered most. Then I grew up. And I made sure I grew strong. And I made sure I always had the total support of my self – no matter what...

Despite our best intentions for creating a lifestyle free of stress, we have only succeeded in creating more stress than our mind and bodies can really handle. The good news is there are practical ways to reduce stress in your life without having to spend a whole lot of money. It is important to note that there are both environmental and emotional factors that create stress in your home, workplace and outdoors in a city...

Sometimes a tight muscle is just a weak muscle; ie, tight hamstrings are sometimes just weak glutes.

 

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Joan Borysenko, PhD

There was a show on public television about a woman in her 50s who had started to run a few years before and now jogged up to eight miles a day. Her transformation began by running to her mailbox and back, a distance of about a hundred yards. That didn’t seem so hard—I figured if she could do it, so could I...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I am excited to bring the work of Dr. Borysenko to ATH. I have been reading her work for quite a while now. She is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection.

Research shows that you can burn as many calories in one circuit of weight training, consisting of 8 exercises, as you do running a 6-minute mile.

from Bess Coble, ATH Exercise & Fitness Co-Editor

You may have heard these words used interchangeably when referring to working out on exercise machines or with dumbbells, but these words have different meanings. During my undergrad days, one of my professors drilled it in my head that they are all different because he got tired of hearing me use them incorrectly. Now you can be in the know and amaze your friends with this bit of trivia...

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...
