Gene Therapy In Mice Builds Muscle, Reduces Fat
Exercise and physical therapy often are recommended to help people who have arthritis. Both can strengthen muscle — a benefit that also can reduce joint pain. But building muscle mass and strength can take many months and be difficult in the face of joint pain from osteoarthritis, particularly for older people who are overweight. A new study in mice at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, however, suggests gene therapy one day may help those patients.
The research shows that gene therapy helped build significant muscle mass quickly and reduced the severity of osteoarthritis in the mice, even though they didn’t exercise more. The therapy also staved off obesity, even when the mice ate an extremely high-fat diet.
The Most and Least Physically Active U.S. States
New government research paints a dire picture of Americans and their exercise habits. Across all 50 states, at least 15 percent of adults reported being physically inactive, while in some areas of the country, nearly 50 percent of adults said they got no form of exercise.
The research is based on four years of survey data (2015-2018) collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and was published Thursday on the CDC’s website. The telephone-run survey asked people if they had participated “in any physical activities or exercises such as running, calisthenics, golf, gardening, or walking for exercise” in the past month, outside of any work duties. Those who said no were classified as inactive.
2 Trainers Agree: Jumping Jacks Can Help You Burn Belly Fat If Done These Ways
Will doing jumping jacks in your living room every few days make you lose belly fat? No. Can they, however, help with the process of shedding fat in that abdominal area if done right? Sure! We spoke to two personal trainers — NASM- and ACE-certified Ali Greenman and Charlee Atkins, CSCS, founder of Le Sweat — about how this move you most likely learned in gym class can, along with other important factors, result in fat loss.
FIFTH OF YOUNG MEN WHO EXERCISE ENGAGE IN 'DISORDERED EATING' TO GAIN MUSCLE, STUDY FINDS
A fifth of young men who exercise to gain muscle may be at risk of so-called muscularity-orientated disordered eating behaviours, a new research finds.
The study, conducted by researchers at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco, found that 22 per cent of males aged 18-24 who work out to bulk up exhibit these disordered eating behaviours.
Meanwhile, five per cent of women in the same age category show similar characteristics.
How fast you walk predicts how long you'll live
Walking is one of the best ways for the average person to get and keep fit: it's free, you can do it basically anywhere, and you don't need any special training or equipment.
A study published this month in Mayo Clinic Proceedings confirms your walking speed is a simple predictor of longevity: fast walkers have a longer life expectancy than slow walkers.
I Masturbate Every Morning & It Does Wonders For My Anxiety
By 7am, I’ve already had two orgasms.
I have to get up if I want to get a shower in before work, but I can’t resist going for one more. In the end, I rush for the bus in a haphazard outfit, my self-induced bedhead neatly packed away in a bun.
The lack of shower aside, it’s a regular scenario – getting myself off is part of my morning routine. It’s about more than sexual satisfaction; I use it as a form of relaxation.
My stress levels are generally quite high. I work in a fast-paced environment where tight deadlines come as part of the package and my mind is constantly 'on'. I also suffer from anxiety, which adds another layer of tension to my already overworked brain. Switching off is difficult – as a natural workaholic, my evenings and weekends are frequently filled with more work.

The Vaguely Sexual Exercise That Fixed My Weak Butt
"Your butt is weak."
It's not what I was expecting to hear when I visited a physical therapist for my excruciating knee pain, but that was the situation: I had a poverty posterior.
Weak or inactive glutes, it turns out, can result in an unbalanced hip-to-knee rhythm, poor movement mechanics and joint health in the knee, and even reduced ankle stability.
After the diagnosis, I signed up for a glute-focused powerlifting program designed by the authority on asses, Bret Contreras, CSCS, a strength coach who has an actual PhD in glute mechanics. (His thesis was called "Kinematics and kinetics of vertical and horizontal hip extension exercises and their transference to acceleration and power.")
Drinking More Cold Water Burns a Few More Calories
Does drinking more water really help dieting? A small study says drinking more cold water may help you burn a few more calories each day. How many? You burn about 50 calories per quart (or liter) of cold water, or about 25 calories per typical water bottle full of cold water. The effect mostly comes from the body needing to heat up the water in your digestive tract. It's a small effect, about the equivalent of five plain M&M candies.
How much water you should drink each day regardless of dieting is a common question. Apart from the water you get in food, medical references say women should drink about nine cups of beverages each day (73 ounces) and men should drink 12.5 cups (100 ounces) of beverages. With exercise, you should replenish the water you lose through sweat. See how much water to drink for walking and exercise.

Can You Get Herpes From Your Gym Mat?
You’re probably already a pro at wiping down the handlebars on the treadmill or sopping up sweat on the bench. But how about the gym mat you just unrolled—can there be gross stuff lurking on that, too?
According to a recent blog post by surgeon David A. Greuner, M.D., FACS, FICS, gym mats can be grosser than you think. In fact, he claims that coming in contact with a dirty gym mat can raise your risk of skin infections and acne—and even transfer herpes to susceptible individuals.

Here's Why You Should Be Watching A Scary Movie During Your Next Workout
There are days my motivation to work out is minimal at best, and as the weather gets colder, those days seem to become more and more frequent. Yes, the moment the temperature starts to drop, and the leaves even suggest turning color, I'd really rather just curl up on the couch with a bowl of chips and a horror movie to begin my very enthusiastic countdown to Halloween. But luckily for me, I've discovered a new motivation that might help me get in the mood to move when I'm just not feelin' it. It turns out that watching scary movies while exercising can actually pack a serious punch when it comes to your aerobic exercise.
Believe it or not, this is not as much of a stretch as it sounds. There has been actual research done that supports the idea that watching a horror film has around the same aerobic and metabolic impact as taking a 30-minute walk.
Does Sex Really Count As A Workout, Because I'm Also Just Asking For A Friend
You've probably joked before about how the last time you had sex, it felt like an actual workout. I mean, everyone's at least thought about that. But no one really wants to be the one to ask that question. Interestingly enough, research already shows women who exercise regularly have more active sex lives, are quicker to reach orgasm, and are more easily turned on than women who don't exercise.
So it's not a totally ridiculous thought, right? But when all is said and done, could you actually replace your usual SoulCycle class with a steamy sex session?
(I promise, I'm definitely just asking for a friend.)
Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Send Your Child to Football Camp
Sending Your Kid to Football Camp? We urge you to reconsider. While the benefits of fresh air, exercise, and teamwork are well known by the football community, the inherent danger of brain disease is NOT. It cost us our son’s brain and ultimately his life.
By now you have probably heard of CTE or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, a progressive, degenerative disease that destroys the brain. Most people associate it with military veterans, pro-football players and repeated traumatic, concussive blows to the head. But that’s far from the complete picture.

What's the best time of day to exercise?
Some fitness gurus recommend working out first thing in the morning because that's when you're least likely to have scheduling conflicts and therefore more likely to exercise regularly. Plus, early exercisers often say that a morning routine leaves them feeling more energized and productive during the day.
But if you are not a morning person and shudder at the thought of getting out of bed for a 6 a.m. workout, I have good news: We perform best at exercise (especially high-intensity exercise) later in the day.
Research shows that strength and flexibility are greatest in the late afternoon and that perceived exertion -- meaning how hard you feel that your body is working -- is lowest. Scientists attribute these effects to our circadian rhythm, the body's 24-hour clock, which causes body temperature to rise slightly throughout the day and peak in late afternoon.
