from The New York Times    Share    Share on
FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you are a woman who exercises, get ready to do some math. Last week, researchers at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago announced a new formula for calculating a woman's maximum heart rate, a measure commonly used by athletes to pace themselves and monitor their progress. In a study of nearly 5,500 healthy women, scientists discovered that a decades-old formula for calculating heart rate is largely inaccurate for women, resulting in a number that is too high.  More

from The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
During the summer months, high temperatures and oppressive humidity make you sweat so much more, your feet are likely to get wet when you're walking, jogging or hiking. That moisture isn't just uncomfortable; it's also the source of friction. "That's why it's so hard to take off wet clothes," explains Mary Mundrane-Zweiacher, an athletic trainer from Dover, Del. There's the rub that can result in blisters. According to an article in the June issue of Podiatry Today, the uncomfortable bumps are the most common sports-related foot ailment.  More

Chris Henry's Brain Damage Adds to Concern for Contact Sports
from Cincinnati Enquirer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In his role as the Bengals player representative for the NFLPA, offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth has sat through a lot of presentations on concussions and head injuries. But with the recent findings that the late Chris Henry has become the first documented case of an active NFL player who died suffering from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE, all of those hit home."It's kind of fearful. It's shocking that a guy you played with and didn't really play with that long could be diagnosed (with it)," Whitworth said. The results and other findings were released by researchers at West Virginia University as part of an analysis of Henry's brain. CTE can be caused by repeated instances of head trauma.  More

Can Neck Measure Indicate Body Fat Better Than BMI?
from CNN    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Flawed, limited and inaccurate. The complaints against the body mass index are many. Among them: The BMI, which measures weight relative to height, doesn't accurately calculate body fat. It deems athletes or muscular people to be obese and underestimates body fat in older people. But it's inexpensive and simple, so the BMI continues to be the public health agencies' standard for assessing for obesity.  More

from Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

New research shows increased muscle performance in sub-maximal activities, which in humans can range from everyday activities to running a marathon.
