(CLEAR!! 300 kjl--Patient showing signs of live after shock)
Restorative fitness approach

What type of programming would provide restorative effects at the same time. That is to say, what would offer the must bang for the buck strength and metcon wise, while not being so counter-productive to movement patterns.

If heavy squats and power cleans offer strength, but require me to do 15 minutes of foam roller training and seek out Chinese secrets for restoration, then am I really operating on a plan that has a health/longevity bias? Furthermore, if running creates (or exacerbates) imbalances, thereby requires pelvic tilt work for 15 minutes everyday, am I on the correct track?

Just thinking.

There was a doctor with a radio show back in the US...I forget his name, but IIRC he wrote a book called "Eat, Drink and Be Merry" in which he argued that walking regularly and having an active sex life were all the exercise you'd ever need.

LOL, what would the "high intensity" version of that look like?

Although somewhat off topic, a Cambridge professor by the name of Aubrey De Grey is currently working on nanotechnology and the elimination of aging.

I'd love to see comparitive srudies from different types of activity populations i.e. runners, matial arts, swimmers, Interval Trainers (pretty sure it would be extremely difficult to find very many elderly interval trainers but i could be wrong) Dancers, and weight lifters.

I wonder how many of the runners in these studies also did these activities as well? I guess what I am saying is is this a comparison between active and inactive elderly or active runners and active non runner elderly. It would make a big difference in evealuating whether the act of running itself not just a higher activity level had anything to do with the resistance to age related deterioration.

I suspect that simply being physically active throughout your life gives you an edge when it comes to longevity but there is a correlation between grip strength in middle age and health in old age so some form of resistance training would be sensible of you plan on staying healthy.

Midlife Hand Grip Strength as a Predictor of Old Age Disability.

It may interest any carb haters out there that the number of Japanese centenarians has reached a new high despite all that rice they eat.

Japanese centenarians at record high.

Darryl,
That's interesting about the Japanese, and good news to me (I'm 1/8 Japanese... not much, but with longevity being prevalent on both sides of my family something is working in my genes to extend lifespan).

Couple of questions though. How many of the centenarians are on Okinawa and what kind of population increase has Japan experienced in the last 40 years that centenarian population has increased?

I think I remember seeing a post by Robb one time noting that the Okinawans eat less rice and soy and have a tuber similar to a sweet potato. Carbs aren't bad, empty ones like rice are though.
