November 13, 2019
What if we could tell you how much longer you had to live? Of course, we cannot predict the exact day or time, but if we could we would definetly have a show on TLC. Probably called, “Sweat Angel Psychics”….. you have to admit that has a nice ring to it. However, we are not in the business of the supernatural, we are in the business of fitness.
We recently came across an article from “The Art of Manliness” about a study done in Brazil by a man named, Claudio Gil Araujo. In his study he came up with a test he named, Sitting-Rising Test, or SRT.
So what is the test? Lay on the ground, and get up without using your hands. Yep..that’s it. There is a point system, and the amount of points you get will determine how much longer you have to live. Click on this link to check out the point system, as well the different techniques you can use to get up. https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/take-the-simple-test-that-can-predict-your-mortality/

Getting children to exercise is no easy feat! Especially when they have all the entertainment they could ever need at the touch of their fingers. You have to make it fun and enjoyable while getting them to move and exercise. There are countless benefits to getting your child to exercise but here are some of the major perks.
-Develop new athletic skills and abilities that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
-They will improve their communication skills by participating in fun group/team activities.
There are also studies that show children that participate in sports/exercise tend to do better in school.
In these studies had children complete 20 minute walks and completed a MRI scan on their brains. The children’s brains where more “active” mean they had more neurons firing.
