Alzheimer’s Primer

Becky Holman

Information from emediawire.com suggests that exercise is just not enough to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

“Preventing Alzheimer’s and other dementias rests on a combination of six core lifestyle strategies,” says Dr. Phyllis Staff, CEO of Alz­heimersFree Press. “Focusing on only one strategy will leave people vulnerable to developing dementia later in life.”

The six core strategies are exercise, diet, a program of vitamin and herbal supplementation, regular brain stimulation, a satisfying work and social life, and consistent spiritual practice. An effective program for preventing Alzheimer’s includes all six.

Looking at him now, you’d hardly believe that Anthony Presciano fought a serious battle with childhood obesity. Until the age of 14 he was badly overweight and lacked the education or desire to make a change. When he entered middle school in 1989, however, Anthony decided to try out for the football team, and with the guidance of his older brother he lost more than 40 pounds between the seventh and eighth grades.

Bodybuilding Success With the Power Rep Range Shock  Max-Mass System

When I first created the Power/Rep Range/Shock training program in 2001, I thought only my training partners and I would ever use it. Once I saw how well it worked, however, I began to implement the system with my personal-training clients as well. When bodybuilding and fitness discussion boards became more popular, I decided to post about my program, hoping that perhaps other people might find it beneficial.

You can loose a man from the millstone that binds him, but you can’t prevent him from hauling it to his shoulder, lugging it everywhere he goes and rejoicing. Four consecutive days off from weightlifting is my limit, and those I confine to special occasions. There are valid and invalid reasons for tight training control. Not one is original, and I respect them all.

Up With Bananas

Up With Bananas

You probably know that bananas are a good source of potassium—one supplies about 10 percent of your daily requirement. That mineral can help prevent muscle cramps. But did you know that bananas are also a good source of tryptophan, an amino acid that helps boost serotonin, a mood regulator, in the brain? In fact, many antidepressant drugs, like Prozac, manipulate serotonin levels.

Advice: Feeling down? Eat a banana.

World Class Confidence

Competition brings out the best in some people; for others it’s an added pressure that crushes them. There are athletes who set all their personal records in lifting contests and often advance in the final placings because they come through with a clutch lift, frequently one that’s heavier than they have ever even attempted before. Then there are lifters who seem to fold in the face of competition and perform well below their capabilities. Let’s take a closer look at what separates the two groups and see how you can become a better competitor. You can apply the same principle to all aspects of your life.
