Re: IR Sauna

Thanks Spells.

Interesting.

I skimmed but have not read fully yet the article you linked.

So, is IR the latest round of Snake Oil?

Why are you drawn to it, or are you merely curious?

Re: IR Sauna

This is somewhat off-topic, but not entirely, I don't think. I don't know as much as I'd like about the claimed benefits of IR, or even traditional, nor the science supporting such claims, though I think, "detoxification" as a benefit of perspiration is generally deemed conventional wisdom. (If some...

Re: Foundation Training: Core Elements

Disappointing that the 12 minute video has been pulled down. I did it daily for a few months a couple years ago. I did not have any "throw away your crutches" type of faith-healing miracles as described in some of the comments, but I did it enjoy it as a way to insure some daily mobility/stretching ...

Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

For those who have read Pavel's latest work, a question that is beside the point of whether the methodology works well or not. Since departing Dragon Door, has the over-the-top "Comrade," ("Evil Empire," "One Mississippi, Two Mississippi...One Volga, Two Volga") and, "X is for sissies", etc., sort o...

Re: TheHappyBody.com

I think the happy body people are right that strength is important and training to maintain and build muscle is vital to aging well. I think they are right that stretching/flexibility/mobility is important. A good yoga program, or tai chi, or jumpstretch bands, or whatever is also vital to aging we...

Spells & Fats, I can't point to any data, just anecdotally, I think many karateka ("many", i.e., disproportionate to % of population, etc.) end up needing new hips. Might a bazillion kicks be bad?

Re: Only endurance exercise slows down ageing

Sangoma, I have only perused their website and book offerings on Amazon, not read their book(s), but from what I glean, they feel endurance exercise overall is not good for aging well, not just running. Yes, your comment, i.e., "not being good at it", might still apply but, and I say this as more of...

I would say light enough so you don't perform a valsalva maneuver (holding your breath and trying to push out). Ryan, thank you for the info.

Re: Cardiac calcium score - reversing heart disease

Cayenne, I am out of my depth in regards to your situation. Low risk asymptomatic people don't seem to significantly benefit from statins. How the outcome changes with the history of TIA I don't know. I have seen a study where taking statins after TIA reduced the risk of stroke later by about 20% a...

Re: Cardiac calcium score - reversing heart disease

Here it is, the calculator. http://www.cvriskcalculator.com/ If your risk is below 10% calcium score testing is not indicated in the first place. Sangoma, is this basically saying that in this low risk pop., statins are not helpful? How is "low risk" defined? At 58 y.o., lifelong recreational exerc...

Re: Is anyone watching "The Americans"?

I only got to watch half so far, (DVR'd) and today, couldn't wait, read reviews so I know what happens, but know I'll enjoy watching the rest when I'm able.

Re: Is anyone watching "The Americans"?

I am fascinated to see how they close it out.
