Physical Activity: Health Benefits vs Fitness Benefits
Physical activity: Any movement of the body produced by skeletal muscles and resulting in energy expenditure.
Exercise: A physical activity that is structured, planned and is done at a certain intensity level, frequency, and duration.
Low inflation reflects weakening demand and doesn't inspire confidence about the economic shift from manufacturing to consumption, yet at the same time it should allow Beijing to enact stimulus should it seek to support the economy further .
I hear that you should get 30 minutes of exercise a day, but you can break it up. Does this have the same effect?
Yes. A recent study (Deakin University, Melbourne) found that nine weekly 10-minute sessions offer the same health benefits as three weekly 30-minute sessions. This is good news for beginning exercisers, who may find it easier to stick to shorter workouts.
Which is better for burning fat: 30 minutes of exercise at a quick pace or a longer session at a slower pace?
The highest intensity an exerciser can sustain without going to exhaustion will burn more fat. The faster you walk, swim, cycle, etc., the more calories you use per minute. However, if you've been sedentary, you won't last long at a higher intensity and might hurt yourself, so you need to start slow and gradually work up to a higher pace.
Is doing only one set of an exercise really as good as doing two or three?
Many studies (University of Florida, Gainesville is one) have shown similar improvements in strength and muscle size for groups of untrained people performing one set per exercise as compared to groups doing three sets. For people just starting out, or who want to maintain the strength gains they've already achieved, one set of each exercise is enough. However, for athletes and anyone trying to achieve greater strength gains, 2-3 sets are better.
Will crunches help me lose the fat around my stomach?
You cannot spot reduce fat, except by liposuction! Crunches will tone your abdominal muscles, but you will have the same layer of fat sitting on top of these muscles unless you create a calorie deficit by burning more calories than you consume. Don't look for quick fixes--as we all know, if it sounds to good too be true, it probably is!
I started exercising (walking, exercise bike, etc) to improve my health and lose some weight, but I have gained weight instead. What am I doing wrong?
What weight are we talking about? Scales are a poor indicator of changes in body composition because muscle is more dense than fat. This means that a pound of muscle occupies less space than a pound of fat. Instead of worrying about changes on the scale, look for changes in how your clothes fit. Gaining weight isn't bad if it's muscle--along with looking good, it revs up your metabolism. For every pound of muscle added to your body, you'll burn at least 35 more calories per day. Three pounds of muscle will burn enough calories in a month to lose a pound a fat! (The only way you can really "melt off pounds in your sleep"!)
In the episode "The Little Kicks," we get to see Elaine's fabulously hilarious dance moves. It's almost impossible to imagine a version of Seinfeld in which Elaine doesn't dance in such a funky way. And yet shockingly, this was almost the case. Writer Spike Fereston knew that series creator Larry David was against the dance, and he was only able to get it approved after David left. He was able to get the dance approve, but still received a lot of push back from the other writers.
Technology and telecoms are on the up as are some fast food companies, including Starbucks, which BrandZ puts in this category, and McDonald's, whose brand value is risen by nine per cent even though its ranking is unchanged.

But the runaway winner was Ford CEO Mark Fields, who began the year with the depressing news that his company was “transitioning from an auto company to an auto company and a mobility company”. He then went on to declare: “Heritage is history with a future.” He was so chuffed with this, he said it more than once. On hearing it repeated, I’ve concluded it is less gnomic than downright moronic. Mr Fields is thus my new Chief Obfuscation Champion.
