planning for a perfect future

ABOUT 20 years ago, I did a fitness test with professor John Brewer, one of the country’s leading sports scientists. He was armed with a clipboard, stopwatch and behind him, in the school gym this cutting-edge test was being conducted in, sat a hefty looking, steam-powered PC. That was it. No blood monitoring, heart rate equipment, dietary analysis and certainly no investigation into things like mindset or recovery rate. And this wasn’t any old test. Oh no, this was a state-of-the-art, FA-approved assessment of my abilities. Sadly, the results have long been lost, but what is interesting to look at today is John’s piece on just how much has changed in recent years (p34). And still is changing. Nicky Spinks and Jasmin Paris are proof of that (p40) and what…

more reasons to be a runner

YOUNGER BRAIN Previous studies have shown exercise improves cognitive function in older individuals, but a recent investigation by researchers at Columbia University suggested keeping active can help slow down the effects of age on your grey matter. When participants were tested for executive function, processing speed, language, attention, and episodic memory, brain scans showed significant positive changes in brain structure. LESS VISCERAL FAT The most dangerous fat in your body is the type you can’t see – the visceral variety that surrounds your organs. Fortunately, exercise reduces this sort, and not just the flabber around your belly. A paper published this year in Mayo Clinic Proceedings reported exercise was more effective than medicine per pound of body weight in getting rid of the dangerous internal fat. LIVE LONGER In a recent study on those diagnosed…

under the microscope: magnetic-field recovery devices

What? Researchers at the National University of Singapore have devised a machine called MRegen, which aids recovery using the magnetic field. How? The magnetic stimulation gives the effect of exercise, causing the muscles to adapt more quickly. Testing has shown that post-operative recovery indicators were 50% better among patients who had used MRegen. Why? Being injured means you’re probably unable to train, but physios usually recommend some sort of activity to aid recovery. Magnetic-field recovery could be a way forward in getting around this paradox.…

RED MEAT According to the NHS, eating a high amount of red meat could increase the risk of bowel cancer so it is recommended that we don’t consume more than 70g (cooked weight) per day. However, as part of a varied diet, smaller quantities can be beneficial. Compared to white meat, it’s a bigger source of the important vitamin B12 and the minerals iron and zinc. It’s also slightly higher in beneficial bioactive compounds. WHITE MEAT On the positive side, like the red variety, white meat is of course a great source of protein. White meat also contains a range of essential micronutrients, is high in potassium and calcium and is lower in fat and calories than red meat. VERDICT Both can be great source of nutrients and beneficial for you as part of…
