‘Life Force’ Linked To Body’s Ability To Withstand Stress


An outgoing personality — especially in senior women — may increase the human ability to withstand stress

Stretching Before Exercising Actually Weakens Muscles

This whole ritual may have been a big lie

Back in grade school you were probably taught the importance of warm-up exercises, and it’s likely you’ve continued with pretty much the same routine ever since. Science, however, has moved on. Researchers now believe that some of the more entrenched elements of many athletes’ warm-up regimens are not only a waste of time but are actually bad for you.
