run off your belly and beat stress!

(Photography iStock) I used to run most days, motivated by miles moved, times clocked and shaving seconds off my PBs. Now I’m less driven by fat loss and faster times – the first of those I get in the weights room, and the second is diminished by higher priorities - but I still run a couple of times a week, mainly for the mental health benefits it brings. As we reveal in this special issue, running outside is one of the best ways to boost energy levels and lower feelings of anger and anxiety (p11). And the best bit? All you need is a pair of trainers to get going. We round up the best new shoes (p17) and examine the science behind what makes them great (p26). We also…

take it outside

When you need a change of scenery from the weights room, lace up your trainers and take your training outside. You’ll get more out of it than removing the frustration of waiting in line (again) for the squat rack – in fact you’ll reap a range of mental health rewards, including greater feelings of energy and enthusiasm and lower levels of anger, anxiety and negativity, according to the journal Environmental Science And Technology.…

toast your heart health with a glass of red

Photography iStock Cardiovascular disease is one of the biggest killers in the UK, but your risks can be reduced by getting regular exercise and following a varied and wholefood diet - which can include alcohol. Previous research has shown that people who drink a moderate amount of alcohol have a lower incidence of heart problems than those who abstain or drink a lot, and red wine has the maximum heart-helping benefits. That’s because a study, published in the journal Atherosclerosis, found that only red wine provided protection against oxidative stress on the circulatory system, whereas beer and vodka offered none. Other benefits include an increase in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or “good” cholesterol, a decrease in platelet aggregation and an increase in insulin sensitivity, which have been attributed to the…

move to the beat to get results with less effort

If you train in a gym then listening to your own music makes a lot of sense, and not only to drown out the filth blaring from the facility’s tinny speakers. You’ll know from experience that listening to your favourite tunes elevates your mood and can make time go faster, but it also makes hard training easier, according to research from Sheffield Hallam University. Subjects cycled on a stationary bike either in silence or with music, and those cycling in time to the beat required 7% less oxygen to do the same work as the sound-deprived cyclists. Do your better-body ambitions a favour by compiling a workout playlist, including plenty of high-tempo tracks for maximum motivation.…

sleep sorted

Get a memory boost We’d all admit to making mistakes when tired, but the impact can be severe. In memory-performance tests at Michigan State University, subjects who were sleep-deprived showed a 15% failure rate when re-tested the following morning, whereas a well-rested group exhibited a failure rate of just 1%. Be more sociable Even been told you got out of the wrong side of bed? A lack of sleep is to blame for your bad mood. Research from the University of California found that the brains of sleep-deprived subjects display heightened activity in areas that deal with perceived threats from other people, with a simultaneous shutdown in areas that encourage social interaction. Stay calm Not getting enough sleep makes you tired,…
