Exercise is more than burning calories

March 5, 2019

Exercise is much more than burning calories – just think all the complicated processes happening inside the body at a cellular and metabolic level In a report recently published in Current Biology, researchers explored the relationship between exercise and “energy expenditure” (calories burned). This study monitored the physical activity and corresponding total energy expenditure in 322 men and women in North America and Africa.

What the researchers found was a little surprising. Physical activity did increase energy expenditure as expected, but only up to a point. Physical activity was monitored by accelerometers, which measure counts (units of “motion”) per minute per day, taking into account motion and velocity. At lower levels of activity, increasing the counts per minute per day did increase energy expenditure. However, with higher mean counts per minute per day, increasing counts did not increase energy expenditure, indicating a ceiling effect. So in this study, after a certain point, more exercise did not equal more energy used.

Based on their findings, the study investigators encourage that we reconsider current public health messages that state more exercise equals more energy expended, as this is not always the case. image from @metabolic_mike #superbodysuperbrain #super #exerciseismedicine #metabolism #metabolic #ibff #npc #wbff #ufc #train #instaeducation #brand #entrepreneur #metabolism #intermittentfasting #ketogenic #michaelgonzalezwallace

Effectiveness of Exercise in hepatic fat mobilization

March 2, 2019

Effectiveness of exercise in hepatic fat mobilization in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NASD)

Abstract

AIM: To investigate the efficacy of exercise interventions on hepatic fat mobilization in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients.

tions. The beneficial effects of exercise on intrahepatic triglyceride (IHTG) were seen even in the absence of significant weight loss. Although combining an exercise program with dietary interventions augmented the reduction in IHTG, as well as improved measures of glucose control and/or insulin sensitivity, exercise only significantly decreased hepatic lipid contents.

CONCLUSION: Prescribed exercise in subjects with NAFLD reduces IHTG independent of dietary intervention. Diet and exercise was more effective than exercise alone in reducing IHT https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4945989/ photo: Felipe Isidro @linkedin #fattyliverdisease #fatmobilization #superbodysuperbrain #exercise #medical #liver #ketogenic #train #tryglicerides #phone #branding #intermittentfasting #nih #pubmed

Push Up Test

February 28, 2019

Push ups and cardiovascular health!

How many push ups 😬 can you perform? My Number is 54 want to get to 64 😆 push ups can be associated to cardiovascular strength

Boston, MA – Active, middle-aged men able to complete more than 40 push-ups had a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes—including diagnoses of coronary artery disease and major events such as heart failure—during 10 years of follow-up compared with those who were able to do less than 10 push-ups during the baseline exam.
