Do Women Work Harder Than Men in Interval Workouts?

Similarly, the women worked at a higher percentage of their VO2 max (88-90%) than the men (85-86%). This was the case even though the men and women were equally recovered between intervals, as measured by their blood lactate levels. "I think what our data show is that there appears to be meaningful differences in how men and women self-regulate their workouts," Matt Laurent, Ph.D., a professor at Bowling Green State University who was the lead researcher, told Runner's World Newswire. "It seems plausible .... that in order for women to maintain the requisite 'high-intensity' prescription, a greater proportion of their aerobic capacity is necessary (when compared to men)," Laurent wrote in his study. <br>Source:

They were subjected to low, moderate and high intensity workouts. Immediately after the exercise session, they were offered a 267-calorie liquid meal. About an hour later, they were offered more food and told to eat as much as they needed in order to feel full. As the researchers explain in their paper, the men ate significantly less after having taken part in the high-intensity workouts. More precisely, they consumed some 200 calories less. <br>Source:

[read more] LSU Athletics) SEC Media Days are next week and the college football season starts in nearly 50 days, so Les Miles decided to give his team a calm before the storm hits. LSU took a break from summer workouts Wednesday evening at Blue Bayou Water Park in Baton Rouge. (Photo courtesy of LSU Athletics) All the players needed were their swimsuits, and they spent a few hours eating pizza and riding the slides.

Brief workouts for runners: dynamic warm-up

Arm circles Make big circles with your outstretched arms making sure to start slowly. 10 times in one direction and 10 times in the other. Back lunges and high knees In a standing position drop one knee backwards to the floor (not resting there) and bringing that same knee up high in front of you. Repeat with the other leg. Wide stance star jumps Jump moving both feet outwards and drop your bum down; spring back up bringing your feet together and repeat, in a different take on the star jump. <br>Source:

MP3-player friendly workout gear for those sticky summer workouts

And not just in NYC -- all over the country. (Remember when temps hit the 120's in the Southwest earlier this season?) It's so hot, in fact, that t I need every single bit of motivation I can muster to get out and run or bike in this heat. (I'm not a dreadmill kinda girl.) And what are two of my favorite sources of motivation? New workout clothes and new workout tunes! <br>Source:
