1. Micro workouts: a primer that will take 60 seconds to read.
If you are still working, or working part-time, and are pressed to squeeze in workouts here is a link to suggestions for micro workouts.
Perhaps you have a full workout in the morning and want something else for the late afternoon. This will help with that, too.
2. One more reason to exercise.
I'll put this out there about ED and Exercise. It's another study, but guys may want to take a look.
3. November is diabetes month.
My friend Jay Croft at Prime Fit Content had this worthwhile information about how fitness can prevent the disease or remedy it:
"The American Diabetes Association says 30 million Americans have diabetes, the seventh leading cause of death. It can affect every decision, including what to eat, and requires steady attention. Weight is a major factor. Exercise and proper eating are important in preventing and managing diabetes.
"The ADA defines type 2 diabetes as “characterized by high blood glucose levels caused by either a lack of insulin or the body's inability to use insulin efficiently. Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older adults but can appear in young people."
Among Americans 65 and older, 25.2 percent or 12 million people have diabetes, the ADA says.
And more from Jay:
Exercise helps because physical activity:
· Helps lower blood glucose, blood pressure, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides
· Lowers risk for pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke
· Relieves stress
· Strengthens the heart, muscles and bones
· Improves blood circulation and tones muscles
· Improves flexibility
"Regular physical activity is important for everyone, but it is especially important for people with diabetes and those at risk for it," the ADA says. “Get active and stay active by doing things you enjoy, from gardening to playing tennis to walking with friends.”
