Wisdom Wednesday- Myth: Crunches are the key to flat abs.
Fact: They may be the most iconic abdominal exercise around, but doing crunches is not actually the best way to slim your midsection. "Since they don't burn off a lot of calories, they don't help in a major way with fat loss," says Wayne Westcott, PhD, professor of exercise science at Quincy College in Quincy, Mass. And while crunches do tone a small portion of your abs, moves involving your distal trunk—which includes your shoulders and butt—more effectively engage your entire core, according to a study from Pennsylvania State University. So you'll whittle your waist far more dramatically by doing planks and bridges (and more of these 24 Fat-Burning Ab Exercises). If you are doing crunches, make sure to use proper form: Otherwise, they may put your spine in a painful curved position.

Wednesday Wisdom: Exercise Boosts Brainpower

"Not only does exercise improve your body, it helps your mental function," says certified trainer David Atkinson.

"Exercise increases energy levels and increases serotonin in the brain, which leads to improved mental clarity," says Atkinson, director of program development for Cooper Ventures, a division of the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas.

All that makes for a more productive day.

"It is clear that those who are active and who exercise are much more productive at work," says Todd A. Astorino, assistant professor of kinesiology at California State University-San Marcos.

Improved productivity not only makes you a better worker, it makes things better for everyone in the workplace. Companies with less wasted work hours and less sick time end up with lower health care costs -- and an improved bottom line, Astorino says.
