FITNESS & WELLNESS

How accurate are fitness trackers?
The New York Times
Nate Meckes recognized that he needed to study the accuracy of activity monitors after wearing one. A shipment of the devices, known technically as accelerometers and designed to measure a person's movement and energy expenditure, had arrived at Arizona State University, where Dr. Meckes was a researcher. To ensure they were operational, he slipped one over his hip and wore it throughout the day, including to an interminable meeting where he stood up and paced. "I'm not good at sitting still," Meckes says.

The Atlantic

The most dangerous fitness advice
Men's Helath via Fox News
Bernard Yang Kim never wanted to be a bodybuilder. The 31-year-old currency trader simply wanted to look chiseled — like an underwear model, he jokes — which is why he found it odd to be staring up at a 315-pound barbell. He had never benched so much weight in his life; few men ever do. But his usual trainer was out, and his gym had set him up with a substitute — one who, as it turns out, was not only overzealous, but also a terrible spotter.

NBC News
Dr. Paul Offit doesn't like getting threats.

Don't do something; Just sit there
The New York Times
Educational opportunities abound in medicine. But it turns out there is exactly nowhere to learn the single hardest skill of all. There are no courses in the art of doing nothing, no fellowships. Who would sponsor them? In fact, one might hazard that doing nothing is the most subversive activity in all of modern medicine, undermining as it does the agendas of all doctors, all patients and all interested corporate parties. Doing nothing has no billing code.
