Living Healthily Makes You Live Longer (DUH! . . .but here might be one example why -jj)
Among 24 men asked to adopt healthy lifestyle changes for a US study in The Lancet Oncology, levels of telomerase increased by 29% on average.
Telomerase repairs and lengthens telomeres, which cap and protect the ends of chromosomes housing DNA.
As people age, telomeres shorten and cells become more susceptible to dying.
Benchmark Check Up:
The year is coming to a close very quickly and it is time for everyone to check on their goals for 2008.
Here are some previous posts regarding goals for the year:
And for those of you who haven’t been around long enough. . . it is time to choose your three benchmarks to be completed before the end of the year. The requirements are that you choose at least one for each category:
1. Gymnastics (example 5 consec muscle ups, 30 consec pull ups, 10 hspus, etc)
2. Strength (double bodyweight deadlift, CFT 1000, strict press body weight, etc)
3. Metabolic Conditioning (sub 4 Fran, sub 20 Filthy Fifty, sub 4 min DCF Newbie, etc)
Then work as hard as you can to achieve that goal by the end of the year.
Post them here if you haven’t got them listed on one of the older posts already. Do it now. It is important that you do it publicly. We will encourage and help you.
You have got to the end of the year to get them done, so don’t cheap out and pick easy stuff. Go big, but realistic. You will be amazed what you can accomplish with a deadline (as opposed to a ‘resolution’)
