Play Yourself Healthy

A just published research experiment on inactive men with high blood pressure shows that just 3 months of soccer practise twice a week causes a significant fall in blood pressure, resting pulse rate, and percentage of body fat, and is more effective than the doctor's usual advice on healthy diet and exercise. Other parallel experiments on both women and men further demonstrates that a regular game of soccer affects numerous cardiovascular risk factors such as maximal oxygen uptake, heart function, elasticity of the vascular system, blood pressure, cholesterol and fat mass far more than e.g. strength training and just as much if not more than running.

How Effective Can Cardio Training Really Be For You?

Every day we roll out of bed and walk into the real world, we face risk. We could be hit by a truck crossing the street, or by lightning checking our mail. It's a very unsure world and there are no guarantees in life. It's the same case every time we walk into the weight room. We're always at risk for injury, no matter what exercise we are completing. Most bodybuilding fans remember when Kevin Levrone, at the peak of his bodybuilding career, tore a pectoral muscle while warming up with a "relatively" light 60 pound dumbbell for DB chest flyes.

Tiny Constraints In Heart Blood Flow: A Better Sign Of Blood Vessel Narrowing And Early Coronary Artery Disease

Cardiologists and heart imaging specialists at 15 medical centers in eight countries, and led by researchers at Johns Hopkins, have enrolled the first dozen patients in a year-long investigation to learn whether the subtle squeezing of blood flow through the inner layers of the heart is better than traditional SPECT nuclear imaging tests and other diagnostic radiology procedures for accurately tracking the earliest signs of coronary artery clogs. Each year, nearly 800, 000 American men and women with coronary artery disease suffer a heart attack, resulting in more than 150, 000 deaths. The latest international study of so-called CT perfusion imaging will involve the participation of some 400 men and women identified as being at higher risk of coronary artery disease because they have had symptoms of the illness, such as shortness of breath, chest pain or fatigue.
