In The Great Fitness Experiment, a funny and informative guide through the morass of contradictory claims and information in today's health/fitness-obsessed world, Charlotte Hilton Andersen goes from gym rat to lab rat, trying a new workout each month for a year in an attempt to discover what works, what doesn't and what's just plain weird. She delves into such subjects as the Action Hero Workout, Cross Fit Training, Going Vegan, Double Cardio, and others. Interspersed between the chapters on the monthly experiments, Andersen offers personal essays on everything from her past experiences with eating disorders to testing the ugliest fitness shoes on the planet to lesson about, as she puts it ''what I've learned from being a girl in our body-obsessed culture.'' She writes candidly about her history of anorexia, orthorexia and ''general-low-self-esteem-exia'' and includes anecdotes about the effects of the ''health'' craze on my students, friends and gym buddies. In addition, she scours the most recent research to let readers know whether drinking milk after weight lifting really does build more muscle (yep!) or if it matters whether you do cardio or weights first (nope!). She also tests some of the stuff readers have heard about and secretly wanted to try but would never embarrass themselves doing. Readers get all the entertainment and none of the carpet burns as Charlotte bends it like a ballerina, squats like a sprinter, gets hemorrhoids like an Olympian, and HOO-ah like a Navy seal. By the end readers will have new ideas about how to eat healthier, work out smarter, and hold their own in a Photo-shopped world.

Are you looking for an upbeat, enthusiastic fitness book offering inspirational advice about exercise and explaining just how easy, fun, and rewarding it is to get fit? That's unfortunate! Because you won't find any of that stuff here. Based on the blog Cranky Fitness, this ebook offers realistic, practical advice on how to get fit, lean, and fierce. It also includes obscenities, whining, opinionated tirades, and advice that could either be extremely useful or could result in an untimely death. Bonus: there are bullet points and photos that break up solid blocks of text quite nicely so that you can make your way through it quickly! You might accidentally learn a few things whether you meant to or not. Cranky Fitness: Exercise Your Ass Off is not for everyone. There are words that have several syllables, research studies that have numbers in them, and exercise tips that require more than ten minutes and don't even guarantee instant flat abs or buns of titanium. The book was written for people who know that getting fit is crucial for health, both physical and mental, yet who are also aware that sometimes virtuous pursuits require effort, creativity, patience, and cursing. This ebook includes advice on getting fit, some specifics about various activities you might want to pursue, a bit of motivation and inspiration, and a few advanced tweaks and tips. It is the first in a series of ebooks that promises to be every bit as weird as this first installment. Only for the few, the proud, the brave, and the cranky.

"An indispensable resource for women of all ages, this is a guide to help us better connect to ourselves, to value ourselves, to love ourselves, and ultimately, to be ourselves." —Chelsea Clinton Positive body image isn’t believing your body looks good; it is knowing your body is good, regardless of how it looks. How do you feel about your body? Have you ever stayed home from a social activity or other opportunity because of concern about how you looked? Have you ever passed judgment on someone because of how they looked or dressed? Have you ever had difficulty concentrating on a task because you were self-conscious about your appearance? Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but authors Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie—PhDs and founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined (and also twin sisters!)—lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification. From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond “body positivity” to help readers develop body image resilience—all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.

A pioneering and beloved Canadian legend comes to life Father David Bauer changed lives — at the rink, in the classroom, and at the pulpit. Bauer’s dream created the first truly national Canadian hockey team. In 1963, that unique group represented Canada abroad and were committed to both country and to Father Bauer. Whether shepherding the hockey program at St. Michael’s College in Toronto or the men’s national team out of the University of British Columbia, Bauer was both spiritual leader and trailblazer. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 16.0px Times; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Through exhaustive research and countless interviews, author Greg Oliver explores a Canadian icon, the teams that he put on the ice, and the rocky, almost unfathomable years of the 1970s when Canada didn’t play international hockey. Finally, for the first time ever, the whole story of Father Bauer’s critical importance to Canada’s game is told in the rich detail it deserves, and a beloved icon is celebrated for his contributions to our nation’s sporting history.

The Mouse in Biomedical Research, Volume I: History, Genetics, and Wild Mice focuses on the utility of the mouse as a laboratory animal in biomedical research. A historical perspective on the development and origins of the laboratory and wild mouse is given. The diversity of inbred strains of mice as well as the methods of developing and the genetic monitoring and testing of these strains are discussed. This volume consists of 14 chapters and begins with an overview of mice of the genus Mus and problems concerning evolution within the genus. The following chapters focus on taxonomy, nomenclature, and breeding systems, together with recombinant inbred and congenic resistant mouse strains. Methods of constructing, testing, and monitoring strains are described. Congenic strains, gene mapping, cytogenetics, and murine experimental studies are also considered, along with the histocompatibility-2 complex and radiation genetics. The final chapter is devoted to the pharmacogenetics of the laboratory mouse, paying particular attention to intoxication and detoxication pathways, genetically determined differences in xenobiotic metabolism, and pharmacogenetic polymorphisms. This book will be a useful reference for investigators using mice in many areas of research.
