Présentation de l'éditeur

Everyone wants to lose weight, feel better, and live longer. But what if that was just the beginning? What if readers could use specific workouts to prevent, improve, or cure what ails them?

As Dr. Jordan Metzl says, "Exercise is medicine." Now he puts that philosophy--along with cutting-edge research and a motivational bedside manner--into a groundbreaking book delivering a head-to-toe list of maladies that affect quality of life for millions. He then offers the specific exercise prescriptions that will help fix them--from type 2 diabetes to depression, from arthritic joints to PMS, from addiction to sleep apnea.

The Exercise Cure received an amazing amount of publicity for its simple approach to weight loss and better health for everyone. The book offers an exhaustive (and exhausting) collection of fun, fat-torching, life-changing workouts that can be tailored to any fitness level.

"Doctors have long focused on the treatment of disease. Now we have a manual that highlights a means of prevention. As Dr. Metzl touts, exercise is one of the world's most effective medicines."
--Sanjay Gupta, MD, chief medical correspondent, CNN

HASH(0x9dee1c0c) étoiles sur 5 Good message, but needs actual citatations 25 décembre 2013
Par Neal McBurnett - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The message of this book is excellent. It presents an enthusiastic explanation of the vast array of benefits of exercise, with specifics for a wide range of common conditions. If I had read it years ago, I might have skipped some periods of unnecessary pain, and avoided putting unhelpful limits on my activities. At the time I thought that various parts of my body needed yet more rest, rather than the movement that I really needed. If you're turned off by hype and repetition, you may not enjoy his style, but amid the sea of misleading or fraudulent miracle cures out there, these at least have lots of research behind them.

That research is, unfortunately, not actually cited and the researchers are thus not acknowledged. And since much of the research is hard to get right, readers can't assess some of the more questionable claims or look for critiques in the literature. That is the main reason I don't give the book higher marks.

The second half of the book is a detailed exercise program. Note that there is frequent duplication of exercises from one section to the next, with illustrations that have sometimes been rearranged or flipped, presumably for variety. I don't know how much overall duplication there is, but it might make sense to collect the exercises and arrange them in some other meaningful order, and refer to them from the sections on each medical issue. And I'd love to see expert commentary (and research) on the choices he makes in terms of specific exercises and the overall design of exercise programs.

Despite those flaws, getting people inspired to actually integrate exercise into their lives is important, and I think his general approach will be effective for a lot of people. I hope so - it would make a huge difference in the world to have a healthier population.

HASH(0x9dfdb5b8) étoiles sur 5 Practical, easy to implement how-to-do-it exercise book that seems to work 7 février 2014
Par Rivermanmiss - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am usually skeptical of how-to-do-it books. They usually overpromise and under-deliver. But I heard an interview of this author on Minnesota Public Radio and he reported that large studies have shown that the sharpest indicator of a premature death is not smoking, not high blood pressure, not obesity, not high alcohol consumption. Rather it is being physical unfit. That hooked me. I bought the book, and then the book really pulled me in.

What I liked about the book:

1. It explains why physical fitness is so tightly correlated with overall health and longevity.
2. Even better, he convinced me of his thesis that it takes only moderate exercise to have a big positive impact. On page 2 he explains that study showing that a brisk 30-minute walk, five days a week will extend one's life on average 4.2 years. That got my attention.
3. The author is a physician who has run umpteen marathons, and he goes into detail explaining the physiology of why exercise, especially moderate strength training, produces a myriad of health benefits.
It can reduce my tryglycerides and increase my HDL levels.
4. the book provides a 10-second test to enable anyone between age 51 and 80 to learn if they rank in the upper 25% of fitness for their age group. (I barely qualified.)
5. The book explains 3 or 4 exercises that are targeted for various purposes. For instance for back pain pp. 114 - 117 the author gives clear exercises to deal with the root causes.
6. There are surprising findings in this book such as why situps and crunches are bad for you, and what exercise to use as a replacement. It is called a "plank."
7. After explaining dozens of different exercises for different purposes, the book presents a routine to get started. This is the best part. The first month is so easy, it is almost irresistible. That hooked me, and I finished month one.
8. Starting in month two you tailor your routine to your own needs and interests. I am starting that. The exercise level is so moderate that I don't dread "doing my exercises."
9. On page 207 the book presents a simple five-minute test to assess your fitness level. It is the kind of thing you can check each month to assess your progress.

This book is not for everyone. I am 76 with a family history of heart disease, and I am interested in quality of life and increased longevity, and these exercises seem like an excellent investment. But they are very moderate in intensity and so will not appeal to younger people and really athletic people or marathon runners or people like that. I bought two extra copies and am giving one to my primary care physician and one to a physical therapist and prescribed certain exercises for my lower back pain.

It is a welcoming, accessible book filled with illustrations and examples and specific facts from case studies. This is a little difficult to explain, but when I think of an exercise book that promotes general health, I sort of glaze over. It sounds very unappealing. It sounds like it will offer generalities which we all know and it will then suggest a program that is far to intense. But this book is the opposite, and that is why it is so useful. The specific benefits of an exercise are described with clarity and appeal, and the exertion level of the exercises is so moderate that it is easy to keep to the program.

I am trying to think of what I didn't like about the book. Perhaps the illustrations of the exercises could have a little more detail. Exactly how should the body look at each stage of that particular exercise.

If you are 51 to 80, but the book for yourself. If you are the child of an aging parent, buy it for them. If you have a physician that you appreciate and want to do something for, buy the book for the doctor.

HASH(0x9de4e45c) étoiles sur 5 Once Overweight 31 décembre 2013
Par Grandma Lewis - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read the negative reviews on this book and they couldn't be further from the truth. One person said the example of the 330 lb lady was not encouraging. As someone who once weighed 246 lbs I beg to differ. I lost 66 lbs and have kept if off 2 years reading experiences like the lady in the book. I thought if someone else can do it so can I. I lost weight before reading this book. The way I lost was by following a diet and exercise program similar to the book. If you are serious about changing your life and losing weight this book is for you. I have already lost the weight and found the exercise helpful. I bought a foam roller as recommended. It is wonderful. One last thing, someone thought Dr Metal should have used an authority on nutrition instead of his mother. Wrong again in my opinion. Good nutrition should start at home. Wish I would have had that start. Hats off to his mother for setting a good example.

HASH(0xad9b56d8) étoiles sur 5 Exercise, The Best Pill... 14 décembre 2013

In a MEDICATION FIRST SOCIETY where every physician is trained to prescribe medication, this is a book that FIRST; helps you understand why sports or activity, any activity that increases muscle mass and heartbeat is so essential for a happy body and mind, SECOND; it helps you distinguish what exercise is and how you can do exercise without being the athlete of the century. If we would get more physician addressing happiness without prescription like this writer has, I am absolutely positive that we all would be living in a much happier society. Bravo.

FACTS: Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, and it instructs fat, liver and muscle tissue to suck up blood sugar and convert it into fat. In humans, weight gain is believed to lead to insulin resistance -- the pancreas must produce more and more insulin to control blood sugar, until eventually it shuts down, causing Type 2 diabetes. The largest consumer of blood sugar in human body is skeleton muscle not pancreas, so anytime you do anything that increases skeleton muscles ability to utilize more blood sugar, you are pulling excess sugar out of the blood which results in healthier blood sugar levels.

University of Copenhagen researchers enrolled about 30 volunteers with Type 2 diabetes who were in their late 50s and early 60s for four months. The volunteers were divided into groups. One group was instructed to walk three minutes briskly, followed by three minutes at a more restful pace, and repeat that process for an hour. Another group walked at a continuous pace for the same amount of time. A third group, a control group, kept up normal routines, which didn't include daily exercise. The interval walkers did improve. Their glucose disposal -- the ability to move sugar out of the circulating bloodstream and into parts of the body where it can be used as fuel -- improved by 20 percent compared with the non-exercising group and their hemoglobin A1C levels, a longer-term measure of blood sugar, dipped slightly too. Steady-paced walkers saw no improvement at all.

Since I am limited on the types of exercise I can do, this book is a real help. It breaks it down by your type of medical issue. For instance, lower back-there is a section that shows you how to strengthen without further damage. Great book for everyone trying to stay active.
