Obesity is the latest health woe being blamed for low sperm counts among men of child-rearing age,
Body Fat: A Threat To Future Babies?
Maybe, at least according to a study on 2,157 young men published in this month’s Fertility and Sterility.
Men with higher body mass indexes also had lower sperm counts, although still within the normal range. And BMI doesn’t necessarily offer an accurate indicator of body fat levels — although previous studies have already found a link between men’s body fat distribution and poor semen quality.
These are the icons from all the obstacles I am going to come across this Saturday during Run Amuck –
Run Amuck engages runners in a three and a half mile challenge filled with obstacles, mud pits, water blast and more! The race, which begins at 7 a.m. in Historic Butler Stadium, follows McCard Road for two miles before turning into a rugged offroad run along the Stadium Trail. After exiting Stadium Trail, it’s back to the streets for the finish on the Butler Stadium track.
I’m excited and nervous all at the same time!
Group training is on Weds. A group of 6 – heavier weights, more individual attention.
2min of jump rope
V-ups on the BOSU
6inches with BOSU on your legs (this one is hard!)
30 push-ups (tennis ball placed on the floor and each time your chest needs to touch the ball)
Handstand push-ups – See image to the left -this is a modified p/up which is what I do with knees on box, and bc of that it’s x2. Note how her arms are straight and not bent. You can try this at home with a chair or something.
