Visual Proof – Exercise Keeps You Young

After yesterday’s post on the effects of exercise on the health of mitochondria, I came across the below video. This guy is 69, has a full head of hair, solid muscle definition, and looks closer to 49 than 69. This video really supports what the experimenters found in mice. Obvious […]

More Proof: Exercise Keeps you Young

Mitochondria are microscopic power generators that create fuel for cells. Small genetic mutations occur when they multiply. Normally these are corrected by specialized cellular repair systems. As mammals age, the mutations occur more frequently than the system can correct for and the mitochondria die. Mitochondrion death is seen as a primary cause […]

Have you ever had the urge to slap a few rockets on your back and jump out of a plane? Me too. This guy just happened to do it. I like how, just for extra laughs, they have women standing on top of the planes. Good times.

Not Everyone has a Gym

We are used to walking into our fancy air conditioned gyms and complaining about the new kid curling in the squat rack. Well, dear friends, some people have to workout by fighting oxen and smashing concrete slabs on their head. These Shaolin Monks take fitness into their own hands, and while there […]

Raise Testosterone by Striking a Powerful Pose

According to a study conducted by Harvard University and Columbia University, how you stand effects your testosterone. So-called “Power Positions”, even if they are posed, can make a person feel more powerful and actually produce more power. Power is posed through open postures and occupying more space by spreading out. […]

You Get What You Believe: The Placebo Effect

I’ve always been fascinated by placebos. It’s the greatest example of “believe it, and it will be true”. This self-manipulation can actually become addicting, and placebo addicts will have withdrawal symptoms from their sugar pills. I’m sure at that stage, if you were tell them it was fake, they simple wouldn’t believe you. But if […]
