Weekly Health and Fitness Roundup: 6th – 12th February, 2012

Here’s this week’s Inspire Fitness Health and Fitness roundup:

Blogs and News

“Exercise As Housecleaning For The Body”: We know the importance of staying active for better health, but what is fascinating is that exercise science researchers are still discovering major details about why exercise is so beneficial, and how those benefits come about.

“San Francisco Airport Unveils New, First Of Its Kind ‘Yoga Room’”: Here on the Inspire Fitness blog, we’ve recently spent some time discussing exercises for travellers, to keep our busy clients strong and mobile while on the road.  More and more, the importance of activity in our daily lives is being ingrained into the infrastructure of our communities.  Well done, SFO!

“Mobility Exercise Of The Week: Palmar Fascia Soft Tissue Work”: We’re big fans of massage balls and foam rollers at Inspire Fitness.  Muscle maintenance is a critical component of maximising the benefits from your training, recovering from a workout, and preventing and rehabilitating injuries.  Using this myofascial release technique for the palmar fascia is particularly useful for those who work in front of a computer all day, and others in physically-demanding occupations that require considerable use of the hands.
