When the best time to exercise for these benefits is often a mystery, but as The New York Times points out, we’re starting to get a better understanding. After several studies, researchers found that the time and intensity of a workout affected the brain’s ability to take in new information. This meant memories were formed easier, and learning was enhanced at certain times. The practical takeaway here is pretty simple: For now, though, there is some practical takeaway from the current studies, said Walter Bixby, an associate professor at Elon University in North Carolina, who oversaw the study of vigorous exercise and reading.

8 Ways to Energize Your Exercise Routine
A study published in the January 2008 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine confirmed the beneficial impact of exercise at the cellular level. The London-based study was based on the observation that telomeres (regions of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome) in white blood cells erode and shorten during the aging process. Thus their length and quality are biological indicators of human aging, sort of an internal lifeline. Researchers compared the length and quality of the telomeres in 1,200 sets of twins; within each set, one twin exercised regularly and the other was sedentary. Researchers found that the longer, healthier telomeres of the active twin indicated a younger biological age sometimes by as much as nine years when compared to the biological age indicated by the shorter, degraded telomeres of the sedentary twin. Our brains may benefit from exercise as well. Dr.

Exercise Could Slow Memory Loss Among People At Risk For Alzheimer’s
I knew then that I was working out too much and the physical impact (fatigue) was more than what I could bear. Since then, I have been concerned about avid marathon runners and triathletes who train intensely for competition. Now there are studies which confirm that long-term, high intensity physical activity could raise the risk for heart arrhythmias (potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythms). Endurance athletes, such as marathon runners and long-distance high intensity cross country skiers are examples of at-risk individuals for heart arrhythmias and sudden death. Due to their physically high levels of exercise, these athletes may be at risk for atrial fibrillation (fast, irregular heart beat) and bradyarrythmias (very slow, irregular heart rates).

Dos and don’ts of exercise etiquette
Researchers had all the study participants undergo 12 weeks of of a trainer-guided exercise program, that involved regular walks on a treadmill. By the end of the 12 weeks, both those with mild cognitive impairment and those with healthy brain functioning had improved cardiovascular fitness by 10 percent. Plus, both groups had improved performance on memory tests, as well as improved neural efficiency, after the program. This is hardly the first time research has highlighted the brain-boosting effects of exercise. A study from the University of California, Irvine, showed that short bursts of exercise improved memory consolidation among older people both with and without memory deficits.

NEVADA WOMAN GIVES BIRTH IN SANDWICH SHOP RESTROOM Prior research has found that prenatal exercise can help manage pregnancy-related musculoskeletal issues, improve sleep, prevent excessive weight gain, and shorten labor. A separate study published earlier this month in the British Journal of Sports Medicine finds that moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during your second and third trimesters halves the risk of your newborn being overweight. Other studies have found that between 60 to 75 percent of pregnant women are inactive. Additionally, while postpartum mood disorders like postnatal depression are widely recognized, rates of depression, anxiety, and fatigue are actually higher during pregnancy than following pregnancy, and can cause complications with the pregnancy, the researchers said.
