The top 5 exercises you should be doing
By Heidi Dawson
As the old saying goes, "prevention is the best medicine," and this is definitely true when it comes to the training and development of our bodies. There are so many injuries I see on a daily basis that stem from the same few causes — causes that can so easily be addressed in just a few minutes a day, before they become a problem or cause a problem somewhere else along the chain. So, with this in mind, here are my top five exercises that everyone should be doing.

How to stick with an exercise routine that makes us more productive
Fast Company
Exercise: It can be something we dread and never get around to, or a godsend for our self-esteem, productivity and health. It’s really what you make of it. There are two reasons exercise helps us get more done. First, it triggers the release of chemicals in our brains that have been shown to help reduce stress, and if you’ve ever experienced “runner’s high,” you know what that feeling is like.

Exercising but gaining weight
The New York Times
Exercise has innumerable health benefits, but losing weight may not be among them. A provocative new study shows that a substantial number of people who take up an exercise regimen wind up heavier afterward than they were at the start, with the weight gain due mostly to extra fat, not muscle. But the study also finds, for the first time, that one simple strategy may improve people’s odds of actually dropping pounds with exercise.

Treadmill studio classes put a spin on indoor running
Reuters via Fox News
A New York City fitness studio is following fast on the heels of the indoor cycling, or spin, craze by beckoning outdoor runners to come in from the cold for group treadmill classes. Equipped with 30 treadmills, lighting evocative of dusk or dawn, and group training designed to hone the skills of marathoners and newbies alike, fitness experts say the Mile High Run Club might do a bit to burnish the image of the most used, least glamorous, of gym cardio machines.

Popular diets achieve only modest long-term weight loss
Forbes
Four of the most popular current weight loss diets produce at best only modest long-term benefits, a new study published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes shows.

Home cooks eat better — and fewer calories when they eat out
Today
If you’re a home cook, there’s some good news about your health. A new study suggests that people who cook at home most of the time consume generally healthier meals with fewer calories. An especially surprising observation about home cooks: they tended to consume fewer calories even when eating in restaurants. These data might have a strong implication for the typical American, who increasingly cooks at home less — for a variety of reasons.

The Boston Globe
Taking a daily aspirin won’t prevent heart deaths in those without established heart disease, but taking the combination cholesterol-lowering drug ezetimibe plus simvastatin could prevent heart attacks and strokes in high-risk heart patients who recently had a heart attack or life-threatening chest pain, according to two research studies presented at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting in Chicago.
