Even a Seasoned Vet of Fitness Can Get Plenty Out of a Rowing Machine

So you're a sprinter, or a weight lifter, or a swimmer... you're great at what you do, and everyone knows it... so why should you even need an air rowing machine? Why not just stick with what you're good at instead of branching out into something as random as rowing? Since it's not a competitive or flashy exercise, many vets will ignore rowing as something they don't need in their lives. But that's doing their own bodies an injustice. Even if you excel at a particular form of exercise or athletic competition, you too can get a lot out of rowing, and you don't even need a rowboat. All you need is a rowing machine, available at any halfway decent gym, or up for purchase at very fair prices.

1 Solution To Obesity: Muscles That Act As An Energy Drain

Many people have traded in their gas-guzzling old "clunkers" for newer and more efficient models or cut back on energy use at home by opting for Energy Star appliances and compact fluorescent light bulbs. But, when it comes to our muscles, a little less efficiency might be just what the doctor ordered, suggests a report in the January Cell Metabolism, a Cell Press publication. The researchers from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Iowa have new insight into an important "fuel gauge" in muscle. They've also uncovered evidence in mice that treatments designed to disrupt those so-called sarcolemmal ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels specifically in muscles might allow us to control our weight by increasing the number of calories our muscles will burn with regular activity or exercise.

Pilates Exercise Balls, Magic Circle and Other Equipment

If you've started with Pilates, you probably know that there's a number of simple equipment you can use to boost your performance. Of course, Pilates is essentially all about position and targeting the right muscles with few but powerful moves. Still, having these equipment can help to improve the results one gets out of the routines. Of course, the very first and basic thing you'll need is a Pilates mat. It may be the simplest, but having a mat that's very uncomfortable could affect the way you perform the exercises significantly. This means that you really have to take your time getting the right mat. Some people take their choice for granted and end up with mats that slip or slide.

Commentary: Obese Pregnant Women Should Gain Less Weight Than Currently Recommended

Recent recommendations by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) call for women who are overweight or obese to gain more weight than they should, a Saint Louis University obstetrician wrote in a January commentary for Obstetrics & Gynecology. Joined by several colleagues, Raul Artal, M.D., chair of the department of obstetrics, gynecology and women's health at Saint Louis University who has conducted extensive research on weight gain during pregnancy, did not endorse the IOM's May 2009 recommendation. The IOM, a non-governmental, independent, nonprofit organization, provides advice that is designed to improve health to national decision makers and the public.

Research Shows That Weight Loss Products Advertised In Spam E-Mail Are Purchased By Young Adults With Weight Problems: Psychological Stress Implicated

Forty-one percent of college students with weight problems opened and read spam e-mail advertising weight loss products and 18.5 percent bought these weight loss products, according to a new study published in the January issue of the Southern Medical Journal. The research was conducted by Joshua Fogel, Ph.D., an Associate Professor of the Business Program at the Department of Economics at Brooklyn College, and Sam Shlivko, B.S., a former Brooklyn College student and currently a student at New York Law School.
