Exercised

The book tells the story of how we never evolved to exercise - to do voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. Using his own research and experiences throughout the world, the author recounts how and why humans evolved to walk, run, dig, and do other necessary and rewarding physical activities while avoiding needless exertion. Drawing on insights from biology and anthropology, the author suggests how we can make exercise more enjoyable, rather that shaming and blaming people for avoiding it

Trust Exercise

WINNER OF THE 2019 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR FICTION NATIONAL BESTSELLER “Electrifying” (People) • “Masterly” (The Guardian) • “Dramatic and memorable” (The New Yorker) • “Magic” (TIME) • “Ingenious” (The Financial Times) • "A gonzo literary performance” (Entertainment Weekly) • “Rare and splendid” (The Boston Globe) • “Remarkable” (USA Today) • “Delicious” (The New York Times) • “Book groups, meet your next selection" (NPR) In an American suburb in the early 1980s, students at a highly competitive performing arts high school struggle and thrive in a rarified bubble, ambitiously pursuing music, movement, Shakespeare, and, particularly, their acting classes. When within this striving “Brotherhood of the Arts,” two freshmen, David and Sarah, fall headlong into love, their passion does not go unnoticed—or untoyed with—by anyone, especially not by their charismatic acting teacher, Mr. Kingsley. The outside world of family life and economic status, of academic pressure and of their future adult lives, fails to penetrate this school’s walls—until it does, in a shocking spiral of events that catapults the action forward in time and flips the premise upside-down. What the reader believes to have happened to David and Sarah and their friends is not entirely true—though it’s not false, either. It takes until the book’s stunning coda for the final piece of the puzzle to fall into place—revealing truths that will resonate long after the final sentence. As captivating and tender as it is surprising, Susan Choi's Trust Exercise will incite heated conversations about fiction and truth, and about friendships and loyalties, and will leave readers with wiser understandings of the true capacities of adolescents and of the powers and responsibilities of adults.

The Story Of The Human Body

The Story Of The Human Body

In this book the author, a Harvard evolutionary biologist presents an account of how the human body has evolved over millions of years, examining how an increasing disparity between the needs of Stone Age bodies and the realities of the modern world are fueling a paradox of greater longevity and chronic disease. It illuminates the major transformations that contributed key adaptations to the body: the rise of bipedalism; the shift to a non-fruit-based diet; the advent of hunting and gathering, leading to our superlative endurance athleticism; the development of a very large brain; and the incipience of cultural proficiencies. The author also elucidates how cultural evolution differs from biological evolution, and how our bodies were further transformed during the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. While these ongoing changes have brought about many benefits, they have also created conditions to which our bodies are not entirely adapted, the author argues, resulting in the growing incidence of obesity and new but avoidable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. The author proposes that many of these chronic illnesses persist and in some cases are intensifying because of 'dysevolution,' a pernicious dynamic whereby only the symptoms rather than the causes of these maladies are treated. And finally, he advocates the use of evolutionary information to help nudge, push, and sometimes even compel us to create a more salubrious environment. -- From publisher's web site.

A Super Home Exercise Book For Seniors

A Super Home Exercise Book For Seniors

This book provides Seniors and people who are aging into their mature years, with some very effective, scientifically based exercise techniques and combines them into a workout routine, which can be performed at home, or in an assisted living facility. This exercise book for aging men and women has a well-rounded workout, which will increase strength in all major muscle groups...FAST. This book provides Seniors and people who are aging into their mature years, with some very effective, scientifically based exercise techniques and combines them into a workout routine, which can be performed at home, or in an assisted living facility. Having spent a quarter-century studying and applying strength techniques to Athletes, recreational enthusiasts and military personnel, I explain the fastest methods, known to man, to regain and develop strength in certain muscle groups. Members of the U. S. Navy SEALS and other elite members of the Armed Forces currently use modified versions of some of these exercises, when deployed, due to their limited access to exercise equipment. I designed this routine specifically for Seniors, not only for its effectiveness but also for the same reason of possible, limited access to exercise equipment. This book provides Seniors with some very effective, scientifically based exercise techniques and combines them into a workout routine, which can be performed at home, or in an assisted living facility. This exercise book for the aging has a well-rounded workout that will increase strength throughout all of your major muscle groups...FAST. Seniors are "aging-in-place" now more than ever before and with the routine in this book, they can now strengthen all of the major muscle groups in the body, get daily exercise and noticeable improvements from this routine without having to purchase any exercise or fitness equipment. This is one the most effective exercise books for the aging because it condenses certain revolutionary training principles into a book, for seniors and aging individuals and allows them to use these exercise methods in the privacy of their own home. Exercise is even more important for aging seniors due to the loss of muscle mass, decreasing bone density and other physical limitations among many of them. "Aging gracefully" includes a daily plan of some type of exercise activity, eating healthy meals and following a low-stress lifestyle. It is said that people who follow these principles live a more-fulfilled life and aging seniors are no exception to this rule. Exercise has been proven to lower stress, increase muscle tissue, fight depression, obesity and a host of other health problems. Regular exercise is crucial to improve the quality of life among today's aging seniors. Seniors now have the knowledge and "tools" to perform a full-body workout at home, which is zero impact and minimizes the risk of injury by emphasizing slow and controlled exercise movements.

Effects Of Exercise On Hypertension

Effects Of Exercise On Hypertension

As the first primer on the effects of exercise on human hypertension, Effects of Exercise on Hypertension: From Cells to Physiological Systems provides the state-of-the-art effects of exercise on the many possible mechanisms underlying essential hypertension in humans. The book contains chapters by distinguished experts on the effects of exercise on physiological systems known to be involved in hypertension development and maintenance as well as less well known aspects of hypertension such as 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure profile and oxidative stress. An emerging area, the effects of resistance exercise training on blood pressure is also covered. A unique aspect of the book is that it covers the effects of exercise mimetics on vascular cell adaptations in order to begin to elucidate some of the cellular mechanisms that may underlie blood pressure reductions with exercise training. Lastly, the book will end with a chapter on the interactive effects of genes and exercise on blood pressure. Chapters are grouped by physiological system or mechanism. The text begins with two overview chapters; one on the general effects of aerobic exercise training and the second on the general effects of resistance exercise training on blood pressure. Each chapter begins with a bulleted list of key points. Effects of Exercise on Hypertension: From Cells to Physiological Systems will be of great value to professional individuals in cardiovascular medicine, the cardiovascular sciences, allied health care professionals, and medical and graduate students in the cardiovascular sciences and medicine.
