dear Millennials and Gen Z girls (and pretty much anyone younger than I) — In the 90s, a song came out by Baz Luhrmann called Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen based on an essay by Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich. The song offered several words of wisdom to the graduating class of 1997, and since graduation season just rolled by, I had a listen to it on YouTube for a laugh. Surprisingly, the lyrics were much more sagacious than I remembered, and there were many references to health and fitness I hadn’t noticed before. So to the classes of 2019 and beyond, I impart to you a few of the more erudite bits of laconic wisdom harvested from this song for your consideration — as well as some viable solutions and…

Article Appreciation Thank you for including the article “Busting the Bro-Science” by Erin Calderone in the Spring 2019 issue. I really appreciate the approach of the answers, especially the truth about heavy lifting — no, it won’t make you look like a man! It was also refreshing to hear another take, which didn’t pit women as being inferior to men. Thank you and keep up the good work! _ NNEKA, VIA EMAIL LOL I enjoyed the most recent issue but had to chuckle at the reference to “cave women” and how we don’t have to worry about T. rex anymore in one article. Humans never had to worry about T. rex. We are separated by 55 million years of evolution and never did our paths cross, despite what the Flintstones may tell us. The…

Andrew Riposta Integrative Nutrition Coach, Holistic Nutritionist, Founder of Author of “Live Low-Carb — for Life,” Page 94 Andrew Riposta’s fascination with nutrition developed after he did a 90-day challenge with a collegiate strength coach at age 19. “When I saw how a well-formulated diet could change my body way more than my training, I was hooked,” he says. Though he played football, baseball, and did track and field in his younger years, these days Riposta does high-intensity training in the gym and gets his cardio from muay Thai and jiu-jitsu. Having recently “simplified” his work life, Riposta admits to bingewatching some popular shows. “Game of Thrones, Vikings and Breaking Bad are my top three,” he says. “I am almost caught up with the rest of the world!” Matt Nager Photographer for “Muscle and Flow,”…

26.2 Could Be Good for You or at least for your blood vessels. Recent research found that first-time marathoners actually reversed the biological age of their blood vessels. “Novice runners who trained for six months and completed their first marathon had a four-year reduction in arterial age and a 4mmHg drop in systolic blood pressure,” says study author Anish Bhuva, M.D., British Heart Foundation fellow at University College London, adding that if maintained, it can translate to a 10 percent lower risk of stroke over a lifetime. Even if you’re not a big runner, take heart: Lifelong athletes were also shown to have biologically younger blood vessels and a much lower risk for disease.…
