Lol, I'm not worried. I literally get amazed looks from my doctor about how healthy my checkups are and I've had only 1 cold in the 4 years since I started running again. Prior to that, I had 1-2 colds every year. Most sites I've seen and books I've read say running is good for cardiovascular health, not harmful. I'd like to know where that site you linked gets its info. Even if it's right, I wouldn't change. If it's not one thing that will get me, it will just be another. It's inevitable for us all sooner or later. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying life my own way. Tongue

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

There's something about HGH (human growth hormone, I've read) that's released when we do squats (weights). I never ever get a cold as long as I do them 3 times a week. But I'll never know, cuz I run too .. so I'll never be able to tell.

We'll see how that data holds up when zombies are thrown into the mix.

People who write this drivel seem to think telling us it's bad will stop us. If smoking cigarettes gave me the same feeling as running a marathon I'd be doing a pack a day.

Ever lift a 400 lb rock off the ground .... naked? That'll give you a rush.

I imagine endurance would be helpful for either, but if it's the Z Nation zombies I think everyone is screwed. They're just too unpredictable.

It's a roid site. Big Grin The hormone info is accurate (haven't checked for studies on the cardiovascular indicator claims yet) but the dead man running pool is not helpful.

They do. Testosterone as well. Hormonal responses after resistance exercise performed with maximum and submaximum movement velocities. Any big rock training does. Acute effect of resistance training volume on hormonal responses in trained men.

Most sites I've seen and books I've read say running is good for cardiovascular health, not harmful.

Sprinting is good, long-distance running not so much. You can get the same cardiovascular benefit from HITT in 1/20th of the time. The main point is cortisol bad, testosterone good. Lift big rock off ground raises testosterone and increases muscle mass, run fast long time lowers testosterone and decreases muscle mass. The bad guy cortisol is a cellular stressor with a tipping point where the cell can no longer be repaired (whereas big rock w/ testosterone, food, & rest repairs become reinforcements). Big rock raises cortisol more than run fast long but it is for a much shorter period of time giving the cells the opportunity to recover (which is one reason not to lift big rock too often, 3-4 days rest minimum, 5-7 better per muscle group) and you can attenuate the response by doing a few more reps slower instead of doing explosive movements.

You know I'm just making all this shit up as an excuse for not running right? Lift big rock off ground is lazy Grog way. Big Grin

RE: Atheists who work out
It's a tool for me, nothing more. I'm actually not a huge fan of running, but i like having the endurance in my pocket in case I need it. Sometimes it pays to be able to make some distance and still have some gas in the tank afterwards.
