Forget Red Bull

want more energy?

well the energy producing champion in your body is MITOCHONDRIA.

Mitochondria are the cell's power producers. They convert energy into forms that are usable by the cell.

They are located in the cytoplasm, and are the sites of cellular respiration which ultimately generates fuel for all your cell's activities.

PS. Bio-Oscillation creates more mitochondrion in your body! Get Juiced-Up

Chocolate helps you lose weight

The Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego: have just completed a study, showing that adults who eat chocolate on a regular basis are actually thinner that those who don’t. It's going to be published in the Archives of Internal Medicine tomorrow.

The authors dared to hypothesize that modest, regular chocolate consumption might be calorie-neutral –in other words, that the metabolic benefits of eating modest amounts of chocolate might lead to reduced fat deposition per calorie and approximately offset the added calories (thus rendering frequent, though modest, chocolate consumption neutral with regard to weight). To assess this hypothesis, the researchers examined dietary and other information provided by approximately 1000 adult men and women from San Diego, for whom weight and height had been measured.
The UC San Diego findings were even more favorable than the researchers conjectured. They found that adults who ate chocolate on more days a week were actually thinner – i.e. had a lower body mass index – than those who ate chocolate less often. The size of the effect was modest but the effect was “significant”

The Science of getting off your Ass

Just published by Dunstan et al in Diabetes Care. 2012 Feb 28.
Breaking Up Prolonged Sitting Reduces Postprandial Glucose and Insulin Responses

The study highlights
Interrupting sitting time with short bouts of light to moderate activity lowers postprandial glucose and insulin levels in overweight/obese adults. This may improve glucose metabolism and potentially be an important public health and clinical intervention strategy for reducing cardiovascular risk.

Sherlock Holmes Fitness

Elementary my dear watson
Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal & a bottle of wine they lay down for the night & went to sleep. Some hours late, Holmes awoke & nudged his faithful friend. “watson, look up & tell me what you see”
Watson replied - “I see millions & millions of stars.”
“what does that tell you” asked Holmes
Watson pondered for a moment and replied “astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that the universe is magnificent & that we are small & insignificant. Meterogically, i suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?
Holmes was silent a
minute, then spoke - “Watson, you idiot! someone has stolen our tent!”

It's all art & science.

science provides evidence
art is all about progression

IHRSA starts today (the annual pilgramage for health clubs) starts today in LA

Here is a famed 'analyst's' views:
When I am asked about the future of the fitness business, I usually respond by stating that the big box membership era is on dangerous ground and that most of what we have presented as fitness to the public during the last several decades is at best somewhat worthless and is mostly failing the consumer and as a business model. There is hope, however, and the future of our industry, and the endurance of the common belief that what we do makes a difference in so many lives, is safe because change is coming from the trainer up and not from the big chains that only want to sell memberships to people who they hope they never see again.

1. Big points
a.) Educate beyond the BS
b.) Provide simple-easy tools

More about Mighty Mitochondria

In human cells there is a natural cancer fighting organelle, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered in order to be effective.
Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, by using a method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders, so there is no concern of side effects or other long term effects.
and is effective in triggering mitochondria into action
(PS. Bio-Oscillation also triggers mitochonria into action!)

1. Scientists used to think that the mitochondria cells were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer.
a.) They used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in fighting cancer and more wasteful.
b.) The drug manufacturers focused on the glycolysis method to fight cancer.
DCA treatment on the other hand doesn’t rely on glycolysis but instead on the mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria, which in turn fights the cancer cells.

The effect of this allows for the reactivation of a process called apoptosis. You see, mitochondria contain an all-too-important self-destruct button that can’t be pressed in cancer cells. Without it, tumors grow larger as cells refuse to be extinguished. Fully functioning mitochondria, thanks to DCA, can once again die.

Why exercise?... it's 'BRAIN-FITNESS'

"Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning," says Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.
"Even 10 minutes of activity changes your brain."

If you need some further inspiration & motivation to invigorate you to get your muscles moving, here are five ways that exercise can supercharge your brainpower:

1. It reverses the detrimental effects of stress.

a.) by boosting levels of "soothing" brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
b.) and even more fascinating, though, is that exercise may actually work on a cellular level to reverse stress's toll on our aging process, according to a recent study from the University of California at San Francisco. The researchers found that stressed-out women who exercised vigorously for just 15 minutes/day had cells that showed fewer signs of aging compared to women who were stressed and not active.
c.) Working out also helps keep us from stagnating on 'bad-thoughts' & negative feeling: simply by altering blood flow to those areas in the brain involved in triggering us to relive these stressful thoughts again and again.

2. It lifts depression.

a.) Research highlights that exercise reduces symptoms of depression as effectively as antidepressants.
b.) Exercise has been found to stimulate the growth of neurons in certain brain regions damaged during depression.
C.) exercise also boosts the production of brain molecules that improve connections between nerve cells, thereby acting as a natural antidepressant.

3. It improves learning.

a.) Exercise increases the level of brain chemicals called growth factors that help make new brain cells and establish new connections between brain cells to help us learn.
b.) The more complex the exercise, eg. playing tennis or getting new 'dance-moves'
c.) also boosting attention & concentration skills

4. It builds self-esteem and improves body image.

a.) PS. You don't need to radically change your body shape to get a confidence surge from exercise.
b.) Simply improving in any small arenas will boost your self-image & esteem

5. It leaves you feeling euphoric/juiced-up.

a.) Yeah, the "exercise high" really does exist as long as you go at 'benefit intensity' (enough intensity to make the magic happen)

The real-chat with 'Muscle-talk' is the mighty Mitochondria

The ‘energy powerhouses’ in your cells. They supercharge us with dynamic energy and vitality.

Here at Pineapple
We replicated a ground-breaking study (Spine, 19 (13): 1455-61:2005) that stated Bio-Oscillation® increases the volume of mitochondria (the energy powerhouses in your cells) guaranteeing you increased energy with both muscle power and recovery.

Plus researchers at the University of South Carolina have just proven that the same effect happens in brain cells. “Exercise Training Increases Mitochondrial Biogenesis in the Brain.” to be published in the American Journal of Physiology

You don't evaluate how 'strong or fit' someone is simply by measuring the size of their muscles.

1. It's what the muscle does
a.) how it performs

2. What's the synchronicity?

3. What's the density of mitochondrion?

leading to assessment of...
a.) the effectiveness of oxygen transfer from your lungs into your blood
b.) strength & co-ordination of muscles in your lungs (to breathe)
c.) your efficiency to get rid of 'waste'
d.) Efficiency to transfer energy

of course a muscle looks beautiful
HOW it makes you feel is the secret!

Ashamed to not know

The first part here: is a 'blog' from Seth Godin:

Ashamed to not know

Society changes when we change what we're embarrassed about.

In just fifty years, we've made it shameful to be publicly racist.

In just ten years, someone who professes to not know how to use the internet is seen as a fool.

The question, then, is how long before we will be ashamed at being uninformed, at spouting pseudoscience, at believing thin propaganda? How long before it's unacceptable to take something at face value? How long before you can do your job without understanding the state of the art?

Does access to information change the expectation that if you can know, you will know?

We can argue that this will never happen, that it's human nature to be easily led in the wrong direction and to be willfully ignorant. The thing is, there are lots of things that used to be human nature, but due to culture and technology, no longer are.

Earlier today I informed you, you only need about 3 mins of exercise to enjoy amazing fitness/health benefit

how long...
