  1. Topics
    1. Lift Weights, Improve Your Memory, Study Shows:
  • Here's another reason why it's a good idea to hit the gym: it can improve memory. A new Georgia Institute of Technology study shows that an intense workout of as little as 20 minutes can enhance episodic memory, also known as long-term memory for previous events, by about 10 percent in healthy young adults.
  • "Our study indicates that people don't have to dedicate large amounts of time to give their brain a boost," said Lisa Weinberg, the Georgia Tech graduate student who led the project.
  • "The findings are encouraging because they are consistent with rodent literature that pinpoints exactly the parts of the brain that play a role in stress-induced memory benefits caused by exercise."

  1. Fitness Regimen Helps Older Men Live Longer:
  • Researchers and experts have said that exercise and increased physical activity is good for the body at any age, but new data suggests in particular that regardless of a man's age, cardiovascular fitness can add more years of life.
  • ‘Higher in fitness means lower in mortality rates'
  • Researchers found that when compared to the subjects with the least ability to exercise - those who belonged to the low-fit group - the subjects in the next-highest category of low-fit had an 18 percent lower risk of dying. Men who were considered moderately fit had a 36 percent lower risk of passing away; men in the high-fit category had a 48 percent lower risk of death.
  • In other words, Reuters reported, for every 100 people placed in the very low-fit category who would die, the high-fit group saw only 52 subjects die.

  1. Planet Fitness Kicks Pregnant Woman Out Of The Gym For Her 'Belly Hanging Out”
  • A young pregnant woman was working out on a treadmill at a Planet Fitness gym in Charlotte, N.C., when one of the staff approached her and explained that she couldn't bare her bulging midriff. She had to change tops or leave. So she was given a choice.
  • Melissa was wearing a string tank top, which Planet Fitness doesn't allow under their dress codes. Melisa complained that that's what she had worn each time she came to the gym, so that didn't make sense to her, a reasonable complaint but not a major newsworthy issue.
  • Here's Planet Fitness' official entry into the much-ado-about-nothing incident from PR Director McCall Gosselin: "This particular location also had a stated policy that prohibited bare midriffs. In this instance, a staff member approached the member to inform her of the policy and offer her a free t-shirt to complete her workout. She was not asked to leave the gym as a result of her attire.

  1. Gym Stereotypes
  • What do we see in the gyms?
  • Where do we think we fall into?
  • What do we hate the most.
  • Our thoughts on the subject overall.


  1. Emails
    1. From: Falconmage To: All

Question: What is the purpose of crossfit? Is it the same as high intensity training or will it help to actually build muscle and lose fat at the same time? After looking at most of the regimens that they have in their crossfit programs, it seems to lean more towards endurance training and fat lose.


  1. From: Falconmage To: All

Question: What are your thoughts on Arnold Schwarzenegger's blueprints? A lot of people has been talking about how great the workout program is and are making gains and results from it but will it apply for someone that's an endomorph?




  1. From: Falconmage To: All

If I were to incorporate a workout program that involves RPM and weight training in one day, will I actually lose muscle from all of this? There are plenty that says cardio burns muscle and a trainer once advised that we shouldn't do high intensity cardio right after lifting. If that is so, what about cardio first and then weight lifting? Is there a difference?


  1. From: Tibor Tiger To: All

Question:  How do you keep track of your progress/workouts?  Do you use a notepad and paper or do you use an app on your phone or do you just keep everything in your head?


  1. From: Tibor Tiger To: All

Question: Have you ever used DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) to relieve muscle aches and pain?  There's lots of info online about it but no clear answer about how well it works.
