MONDAY, Sept. 11, 2017 -- Days spent sitting for hours may increase your risk for an early death no matter how much you exercise, researchers say.
In a new study, people who sat the most had twice the risk of dying over a 4-year period as people who sat the least. But taking a break every 30 minutes to get up and walk around might help decrease the risk, the study authors said.
MONDAY, Oct. 9, 2017 -- Strength training -- also called resistance training or, simply, weightlifting -- isn't just for those muscular bodybuilders at the gym.
It's a type of exercise that should be part of everyone's overall fitness plan. Why? Strength training keeps muscle toned, reduces body fat, and helps burn more calories even when you're not working out.
THURSDAY, Sept. 21, 2017 -- Active middle-aged men are likely to stay active into old age, a new study finds.
The research included nearly 3,500 British men, aged 40 to 59 at the start of the study. The researchers followed the men's health for 20 years. Those who were physically active in mid-life were nearly three times more likely to be active at the end of the study period.
TUESDAY, Sept. 19, 2017 -- Athletes are dying from cardiac arrests that occur during play because teammates, coaches and other bystanders don't know how to best save their lives, a new study claims.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) applied immediately can give these athletes a fighting chance, but onlookers failed to provide CPR in three out of five cases, according to a review of more than two dozen game videos.
