Increase METs level for longevity - #fitness #running #exercise #health #workout #biking #nutrition #aging #longevity #fitfam #lifespan #gym #pollen #pets #asthma #allergy #allergies #survival #diet #run #healthyliving #fitnessfriday #fasting #carfree #angina #Intervals

I've been pointing out much data about METs lately. Intervals are likely
the best way to increase your METs level.

Here is a good Mayo Clinic article about it.

development and worsening of serious diseases

Overall, athletes have a larger and younger population of RBCs. Based on
the MassGen article, this could be a disease avoidance strategy.
Mitochondrial and RBC counts do not improve significantly overnight.

I've presented some strategies for improving RBC and mitochondria
counts in this

It seems clear that a decrease in RBC turnover is related directly to
inactivity, so get moving.

The theory is cold adaptation and physical activity boosts mitochondrial
and RBC counts, leading to enhanced performance.

High athleticism is a good strategy for turning over those old, broken

We really did need a new formula. Yale nomogram is givning me zero CVD
risk. If you have no angina and you workout in the high athletic range,
then Yale nomogram predicts no CVD risk.

This table is very handy, and provides many correlations.

There are many ways to scale your workout to these tables. Pulse rate
and calories per hour are quite useful. There are many great web
calculators and graphs to help get at these numbers. If you are running
or biking up steep hills, use a stair calorie calculator. Another great
trick is to use the Google bike maps to obtain changes in altitude.

Why be satisfied with single digit risk, when you can reduce it to near
zero? The FIT treadmill test graphs are still behind a paywall, but the
Yale nomogram will be adequate in the interim.

If you have no angina, draw a line from "None" to your METs level to
obtain CVD risk. If you exceed the max, use a ruler to extrapolate to
your value. ;-)

One of the most fascinating thing about the FIT equation is the
possibility of predicting future longevity. Such extrapolations are
expected to be accurate within a range of about 20 years. When used as
a lower limit, the predictive power is much higher. Coming advances
favor longer lifespan. Research indicates higher METs levels correlate
with lower rates of death from ALL CAUSES.

Longevity nutrition is the key to pushing the lifespan envelope at this
time. The benefit of diverse approaches can add together. The benefit
longevity nutrition adds to the benefit of athletic training.

BTW, here is a good article about allergy and asthma prevention.

First step on allergies: Clean up the indoor atmosphere

Now is the right time for more spring cleaning, which is also healthy
work. Another way to beat allergies is to go out for a big workout.
