Too much jogging is ‘unhealthy’

first_img Tweet National guidelines suggest exercising for 150 minutes a weekToo much jogging may be as bad for you as not putting on your running shoes at all, a report in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology says.Scientists studied more than 1,000 healthy joggers and non-joggers over a 12-year period.Those who jogged at a steady pace for less than two and a half hours a week were least likely to die in this time.But those who ran more than four hours a week or did no exercise had the highest death rates.‘Upper limit’Analysing questionnaires filled out by all the people in the Danish study, scientists concluded the ideal pace was about 5mph (8km/h) and that it was best to jog no more than three times a week or for 2.5 hours in total.People who jogged more intensively – particularly those who jogged more than three times a week or at a pace of more than 7mph – were as likely to die as those who did no exercise.Researcher Jacob Louis Marott, from the Frederiksberg Hospital in Copenhagen, said: “You don’t actually have to do that much to have a good impact on your health.“And perhaps you shouldn’t actually do too much.“No exercise recommendations across the globe mention an upper limit for safe exercise, but perhaps there is one.”Scientists are not yet sure what is behind this trend – but they say changes to the heart during extreme exercise could contribute.‘Brisk walking’In their report, they suggest: “Long-term strenuous endurance exercise may induce pathological structural remodelling of the heart and arteries.”Maureen Talbot, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said: “This study shows that you don’t have to run marathons to keep your heart healthy.“Light and moderate jogging was found to be more beneficial than being inactive or undertaking strenuous jogging, possibly adding years to your life.“National guidelines recommend we do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week.“It may sound like a lot, but even brisk walking is good exercise. And if you’re bit of a couch potato, this is a good place to start.” 199 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share HealthLifestyle Too much jogging is ‘unhealthy’ by: BBC News – February 3, 2015last_img read more

Martin’s 31 points nearly steal victory for Eagles

first_imgFor the second time in as many games, Wisconsin’s opponent shot the lights of the Kohl Center out. Monday, it was Winthrop’s Torrell Martin who was on fire.”Everything he put up went in,” UW senior forward Alando Tucker said. “It was like throwing a rock in the ocean, they were falling.”Martin scored a game-high 31 points on 11-of-18 shooting, 7-of-11 from three-point range.With Eagle guards Michael Jenkins chipping in five three-pointers and Kyle Moore hitting three more from beyond the arc, Winthrop set a Kohl Center record with 15 three-pointers made. It was also the most three-pointers Wisconsin has ever given up to an opponent.But it was Martin’s shooting that kept the Eagles in the game.Whether he was coming off screens, pulling up or just finding himself open, Martin was shooting the ball whenever he got his hands on it, and shooting it well.And while Martin was hitting them, his shots weren’t the easiest to make.”He had to work for those,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “He hit some tough ones.”Maybe the toughest shot Martin took came at the end of regulation.After Wisconsin guard Michael Flowers put back an Alando Tucker miss with 10.6 seconds remaining, Winthrop’s last play went to none other than Martin. The Badgers guarded him tightly as the best shot Martin could get off was a falling-away three-pointer at the buzzer.Nevertheless, some of Wisconsin’s players feared the shot would go in, given the way Martin was shooting the ball all game.”My heart sank,” Flowers said of Martin’s shot. “I literally thought I was about to have a seizure on the court. I thought it was going in.”While Winthrop’s three-point shooting certainly kept it in the game, it may have turned out to be its Achilles’ heel in the end.”Shots fall and [Winthrop] lived and died by the three-pointer,” Flowers said. “And they died on that (last) shot.”Flowers blossomsWhereas Martin had a big night for Winthrop, so did the man who was guarding him on Wisconsin’s side of the court.Flowers scored a career-high 21 points, tying Tucker the team-high Monday. Flowers also dished out a team-best five assists.”Unbelievable,” Tucker said of Flowers’ performance. “I was waiting for this to come out, and this was the night for him.”Wisconsin’s starting point guard Kammron Taylor may have had an off-night — scoring six points on 2-of-8 shooting, but his back-court sidekick picked up the slack for him.”We needed everything he gave us on defense, offense, making big shots, making key plays,” Tucker said. “That’s what he’s capable of doing, but this was his come-out night.”But where Flowers made his mark Monday night was at the free throw line. Not only did the junior guard get to the line more than any other Badger, he was efficient from the stripe, shooting 7-of-8.”They shot a lot of free throws,” Winthrop head coach Gregg Marshall said. “And [Flowers] knocked his down.”And just as Martin hit some tough shots for the Eagles, Flowers hit his fair share for the Badgers.Flowers’ first field goal came just under five minutes into the game when he drove the baseline, but then found himself behind the hoop when he went up for the shot.No problem, Flowers thought, and he shot the ball over the glass and in for a bucket.”I practice that shot when I play horse,” Flowers joked after the game.Yet, Flowers was quite nervous right after he took the shot, but not necessarily because he felt as though he would miss it.”As soon as the ball left my hand, I was like, ‘Coach is going to sub me,'” Flowers said. “I did not think the ball was going to go in, but when it went through the net, I was just so happy.”Home-court advantageFor the first time all year, Wisconsin experienced a close game at home. Thus, it was also probably the loudest the Kohl Center crowd has been so far in the young season.With the game coming down to the wire, the Badgers certainly needed the extra boost to pull out the victory.”People around here know basketball, and they knew that we needed a little help [Tuesday],” UW junior forward/center Brian Butch said. “And they gave it to us.”N.D. State strikes againLast year, Wisconsin was upset by a widely unknown team in North Dakota State. The loss came as such a shock to many of the Badger players that it is still used as an example as what not to do in these non-conference games against smaller schools.However, North Dakota State isn’t so unknown any more. This past weekend, the Bison defeated then-No. 9 Marquette.The reason for North Dakota’s recent upsets may lie in a former UW assistant coach who is now a Bison assistant.”They have a thing against Wisconsin teams,” Tucker said of North Dakota State. “Saul Phillips, he’s not playing over there. He knows all the ins and outs of Wisconsin teams.”last_img read more

The Astros went on to win in 10 innings, 11-10.After the game, Angels manager Brad Ausmus said he wants MLB to consider suspending Marisnick for the head-on collision, which was outlawed by MLB in 2014.”It certainly didn’t look like a clean play,” Ausmus told reporters (via the Southern California News Group). “It looked like Marisnick took a step to the left and bowled him with his arm up. … MLB should probably take a look at it and consider some type of suspension, quite frankly.”last_img read more
