Big News From the Blue Zones: Best Exercise

“The one you enjoy most, but also the one you can easily incorporate into your daily schedule and the one you can keep doing up to your hundredth birthday and beyond. Many Okinawans practice martial arts, especially a dance-inspired version of tai chi. The type of exercise you choose isn’t important. What’s important is working all your body parts with rigor—meaning to the point of breathing rapidly or sweating—for five to ten hours a week.”

Wait! “News” would be if it were NEW – Not new!!!

Multiple Independent Threshold Units

You probably don’t want to read the review of the Study, but…Things have changed… Again.

“Using new types of experiments on neuronal cultures, a group of scientists, led by Prof. Ido Kanter, of the Department of Physics at Bar-Ilan University, has demonstrated that this century-old assumption regarding brain activity is mistaken.”

Meanwhile PE class is optional…

At least it is in some K-12 schools, according to what I have been told. And it has been that way for a while: we now have college kids taking our Tai chi class who have no ever had any PE classes before.

There is a price to pay: http://neurosciencenews.com/fitness-kids-gray-matter-7997/

High Intensity Exercise Boosts Memory

Interestingly, I didn’t see the what the exercise was in the Abstract; and they also mentioned, indirectly, the importance of nutrition – or the importance of factors dependent on nutrition.

Just more evidence in support of what is already established: more exercise, more better!

The Godfather of Fitness

I was just looking for a Jack LaLanne quote, which I found at Wikipedia, of course.

Reading the story on Jack LaLanne (a Chiropractic Doctor, by the way), I am just struck by what an amazing example he was. I remember as a child in the 60’s doing the floor exercises with my mother… In the 70’s his name and story were there as I read the works of Paul Bragg. In the 80′ his name always came up in the bodybuilding, muscle and fitness magazines that I read. I think it was the 90’s that he was famous as the juicing celebrity – not to mention the feats of strength that he would perform as he celebrated each decade of life – stunts that no one attempts to duplicate (that I know of).

He was something.

Oh, and the quote that I was looking for? It is the last sentence of this longer quote of his:

“Dying is easy. Living is a pain in the butt. It’s like an athletic event. You’ve got to train for it. You’ve got to eat right. You’ve got to exercise. Your health account, your bank account, they’re the same thing. The more you put in, the more you can take out. Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom.”

A Huge Finding

Here is the article about research on Lymphatic vessels in the brain.

We talk a lot about lymph drainage in Tai Chi – in particular there are certain exercises that we do in which we discuss the effect on the dura mater (the covering of the brain where lymph vessels are now known to exit). There are a lot of implications!
