Herbs are the most popular self-prescribed medication. They now come in capsules, tablets, liquids, and powders. Of the $20 billion spent on dietary supplements in the United States, more than $5 billion is spent on herbal supplements alone. Those sales figures increase by 3 to 5 percent each year. But, herbs are heavily promoted as bodybuilding supplements with little evidence that they work. According to Susan Kleiner, author of the upcoming new edition of “Power Eating,” supplements may be natural, but they aren’t always safe.

Every time a cyclist trains they should have a goal for their workout. To reach that goal, they will need to be aware of how hard they’re riding. According to Shannon Sovndal, author of the newly released “Fitness Cycling,” the best way to do this is by using training zones to quantify and track intensity.

Recently the Boy Scouts and their leaders held their quadrennial Jamboree in the hills of southern West Virginia where they engaged in traditional Boy Scout pastimes including hiking, shooting, repelling, orienteering, skateboarding, rock climbing and more. Citing the physical demands of the event and the organization’s ideals of physical fitness, the Boy Scouts this year announced that Scouts or Scout leaders with a body mass index above 40 (the point at which one is medically labeled “severly obese”) may not attend. Those with BMI’s falling between 32 and 39.9 (labeled as obese) must have a physician’s clearance. Do you think this rule is fair or are the Boy Scouts being unreasonable?
This week through July 24, about 40,000 Boy Scouts and their leaders are descending on a vast encampment in the hills of southern West Virginia to engage in traditional Boy Scout pastimes — hiking, shooting, repelling, orienteering, swimming, canoeing and fishing — and in a slate of more extreme physical activities such as mountain biking, skateboarding and rock climbing.

Plyometrics is not a cure-all in athletic conditioning. It does not exist in a vacuum, nor should it be thought of as a singular form of training. Instead, plyometrics should be used by athletes who have prepared their tendons and muscles (through resistance training) for the tremendous impact forces imposed in high-intensity plyometrics. Learn why Donald Chu, author of “Plyometrics,” says it is best to combine plyometrics with other training. http://www.humankinetics.com/excerpts/excerpts/using-plyometrics-with-other-training

Smartphone users just might be the new couch potatoes. Researchers studying college students found that cellphone use -- much like watching television -- may significantly decrease physical activity and fitness levels.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Putting down your phone and living for a week with nothing but sunlight and campfires may bring your body clock in sync with nature's rhythms, a small study suggests. Researchers found that it's not just artificial light that's keeping people awake, it's also a lack of daylight.

In a world of dog obesity and cat arthritis, a group called Healthy Pets, Healthy Families is striving to keep pets—and their humans—in good shape. Los Angeles County public health officials say the idea is simple: If people won’t exercise, eat better and stop smoking for themselves, maybe they will for their pets.
The veterinarian examined Bella, a spotted cocker spaniel, and quickly concluded she was obese and needed to lose weight.

How much is too much exercise? A study of endurance athletes who participated in the Vasaloppset, a grueling 56-mile cross-country ski marathon in Sweden, as well as studies in rats raise new questions about the heart dangers of intense and prolonged exercise, while other research points to the benefits of moderation.
