You Might Want To Do Cardio Before Strength (Or Not)

Today in research not achieving very much: The American Council on Exercise sponsored a study to see what order of workouts is most effective when you’re doing both cardio and strength training in one go. I’m going to skip to the very very conclusion of their findings and then fill you in on the caveats: Basically, they found out that sometimes it’s better to do cardio first and sometimes it’s better to do resistance training first, and also all bodies and workout needs are different, and also do what you need to do for yourself, which is really, really vague.

This Lululemon Tank Puts An End To The ‘Where Do I Put My Stuff?’ Problem

Lululemon Tank

Lululemon sometimes designs some questionable things (example: see-through pants) but this idea is pure genius. They have come up with the solution to the second most asked workout related question: “Where do I put all of my stuff?” And their solution is not a fanny pack. According to Racked, Lululemon have designed the “Stuff Your Bra II Tank” which features three pockets to store all of your valuables while you workout. The product description on their website says:

“Whether we’re going on vacation, to the office or out for a long run, we know that packing the essentials is key. We designed this moisture-wicking tank with three quick-access pockets to hold our gels, keys, cash and anything else we need when we’re going the distance.” Read more on The Gloss…

 

This Woman Uses Nike+ To Draw Penises, Inspires Me To Start Running

Woman Uses Nike+ To Draw Penises, Inspires Me To Start Running

I hate running with a fiery passion. But thanks to one genius woman who has turned her exercise misery into something inappropriate, I am now inspired to lace up my old sneakers and sprint my little heart out. There’s nothing like hitting the pavement knowing that the calories you’re burning will eventually form a dick pic.

New national treasure, San Francisco’s Claire Wyckoff, has been using satellite-enabled exercise tracking technology from Nike+ to run courses and paths around the city that form  penises. We’re talking big ones, small ones, long ones, fat ones, everything. But per her Running Drawing Tumblr page, Claire doesn’t limit herself to just dicks— she also recently drew an extended middle finger and a stripper on a pole, for example. Basically, she’s the new Picasso. Keep reading »

Baby-Inspired Workout
"Superman, Superman, Superman, head down!"

Tummy time: an important part of your baby’s development and, as new dad (and health coach) Michael Stansbury demonstrates, the next best thing to a personal training session for busy parents. Watch Michael follow his baby daughter Lilly Ann’s patented core-strengthening moves, including the “Superman,” the “head on the ground,” and the “lay down.” My abs hurt from saying, “AWWW!” so much.

Spotify Ultimate Workout Playlist

While many people view their workout music as a deeply personal choice (I’m partial to “Alan Jackson’s Greatest Hits” when I hit the treadmill), there’s a scientific reason that some songs get your blood pumping more than others. In addition to beats per minute (BPM) that match up to a person’s running stride and heart rate, workout jams need to have a steady or subtly escalating tempo, and a truly great workout song will also have lyrics that encourage you to push yourself harder mentally and physically. Spotify brought in a team of London-based sports psychologists to analyze 6.7 million user-created workout playlists, and used their findings to compile what they call the “Ultimate Workout Playlist,” which takes listeners from a warm-up to high intensity to strength training to cool down. Check out the 20 hot pop songs that made the cut, after the jump!  (Spoiler alert: your Ke$ha obsession is probably paying off…) Keep reading »
