I came across a Discover magazine issue (Summer 2008) that is all about the body. It has some really cool stuff about the body and exercise. One nice article is "Why is exercise good for you?" which does a nice explanation of how exercise beneifts the body and mind beyond helping us to look better. It includes quotes from Cordain and Calabrese and.. .wait for it Robb... a nice brief explanation of "hormesis!" Much of the info here is old hat to most of you, but could be useful when talking to the "why should I exercise" crowd.

Lots of other interesting articles and neat graphics. I haven't read it cover to cover yet, but I thought I'd give you all a heads up. I didn't see the same articles on their website (http://discovermagazine.com) but I didn't look very long :)
