the smart man’s cheat sheet

Do thisLift weights for abs • Direct abs exercises like crunches build your muscles, but they won’t help you show off a six-pack, because they don’t shift the layer of belly fat hiding it. A six-week Southern Illinois University, US, study showed no reduction in body weight, body fat, abdominal fat or waist circumference. A better strategy is to use heavy total-body exercises such as deadlifts and squats, and do an abs move at the end of your workout. Eat thisNuts! • Feel free to indulge in your daily dose of almonds. Long-term, high nut consumption could be the key to better cognitive health in old age, according to new research from the University of South Australia. In a study of 4822 Chinese adults aged 55+ years, researchers found…

winging it

It's no surprise Jon Devore is the manager of the Red Bull Air Force. The American daredevil has logged more than 17,000 skydives and 500 BASE jumps, and landed stunt spots in several Hollywood movies. Here, he leaps off the Eastern Buttress of South Africa's Drakensberg mountains on December 12, 2018. “My passion is human flight, and I’d like to teach the general public that what we’re doing is actually flying, not just dropping,” he explains.

nosin’ around

Dogs are good at sniffing stuff, and we’re not just talking about other dogs’ bumholes. Specially trained medical detection doggos have been able to detect diseases like Parkinson’s and diabetes. Now, New Zealand’s University of Otago and K9 Medical Detection NZ are working together to investigate using dogs as a diagnostic tool to sniff out prostate cancer.Medical detection dogs are trained to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are released from tumours. There’s growing evidence that elevated levels of a “signature” of VOCs are associated with disease growth. Research has shown that dogs can be trained to detect these odours and identify the “signature smell” associated with cancer.But rather than sending dogs out to stick their noses into random people’s crotches (which they do already), researchers will base the…

Go harder for longer Worth weighting for. Ever wondered why Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger” got Rocky moving? Research published in the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology found that song lyrics and their associations can affect your emotional and physiological arousal, acting as a free and legal stimulant to keep you training harder for longer. And a recent study at Brunel University, UK, found that participants who cycled in time to music required seven percent less oxygen to cover the same distance as those who didn’t, suggesting that music can prolong your performance in the saddle. Mental muscle • It’s not just your muscles that benefit from lifting weights: resistance training twice a week improves blood flow in the brain as well, according to a study in the…

hiit when it hurts

It might help you burn fat f aster, but HIIT could hurt you. People who engage in high-intensity interval training are at greater risk for injury, especially in the knees and shoulders, according to a study from Rutgers University, US. “These workouts are marketed as ‘one size fits all’. However, many athletes, especially amateurs, do not have the flexibility, mobility, core strength and muscles to perform these exercises,” says Joseph Ippolito from Rutgers Uni’s orthopaedics department.…
