8 Ways to Energize Your Exercise Routine

“No matter the age, exercise is great for the body,” says Morgan. “It keeps us healthy, young and active. We all want to live independently and staying active helps us to do that.” Water aerobics: A great way for anyone to get some exercise…young or old. Exercise knows no age limit. Whether you’re 8 or 80, you can always be working to improve your cardiovascular health. Of course, older folks need to take precaution to make sure they are working out safely. “If an older person has not been active in a structured exercise program, they must first get permission from their physician on what they can and cannot engage in,” Morgan says.

Exercise was assessed using accelerometers, with the women working out at moderate to vigorous levels. The results, announced Friday, appear online in the journal Psychology & Health.

NEVADA WOMAN GIVES BIRTH IN SANDWICH SHOP RESTROOM Prior research has found that prenatal exercise can help manage pregnancy-related musculoskeletal issues, improve sleep, prevent excessive weight gain, and shorten labor. A separate study published earlier this month in the British Journal of Sports Medicine finds that moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during your second and third trimesters halves the risk of your newborn being overweight. Other studies have found that between 60 to 75 percent of pregnant women are inactive. Additionally, while postpartum mood disorders like postnatal depression are widely recognized, rates of depression, anxiety, and fatigue are actually higher during pregnancy than following pregnancy, and can cause complications with the pregnancy, the researchers said.

You can have too much of a good thing..exercise!

Previous studies that looked at whether exercise helps reduce hot flashes – when blood vessels near the skin enlarge and blood flow increases – have found mixed results. “Many (of the studies) show no effect, some show a small protective effect but the ones that have been well done have showed really no effect,” Caan said. “We did this study because we wanted to do a really good controlled trial,” she added. For the new study, published in the journal Menopause, the researchers randomly assigned 248 women from three U.S. medical centers to one of two groups. Women in one group exercised three times per week for 12 weeks on a treadmill, elliptical or stationary bicycle. Those in the second group stuck to their usual activity.

Exercise no help against hot flashes: study

Now there are studies which confirm that long-term, high intensity physical activity could raise the risk for heart arrhythmias (potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythms). Endurance athletes, such as marathon runners and long-distance high intensity cross country skiers are examples of at-risk individuals for heart arrhythmias and sudden death. Due to their physically high levels of exercise, these athletes may be at risk for atrial fibrillation (fast, irregular heart beat) and bradyarrythmias (very slow, irregular heart rates). Arrhythmias prevent the heart from effectively delivering blood to the body and may cause decreased blood flow to the brain. Loss of blood to the brain for any period of time is potentially deadly. In Froelicher and Myers book, Exercise and the Heart, 5th ed., authors attribute some of the causes of sudden death to a disruption of a “vulnerable plaque” in the artery that, during exercise could be released during a “twisting” motion of the artery. Another theory is that exercise-induced sudden death could be due to abnormal vasoconstriction (spasm) of the artery that occurs in already diseased and narrowed arterial segments. Circulation 2012 compared moderate intensity exercisers to high intensity exercisers. Comparing the rate of heart complications, the numbers of patient complications were 1 per 129,456 hours of moderate-intensity exercise versus 1 per 23,182 hours of high intensity exercise.
