Scientific insights to improve your fitness

Scientific insights to improve your fitness


In this age and time, with current technology and knowledge, there is an abundance of information of what to do and what not to do.

You got up this morning, and decided to put on your favorite pair of pants… and it is a little tighter than the last time you wore it. Perhaps it shrunk during the last wash, you thought to yourself. But this thought was quashed as you stepped on the weighing scale, and it turns out that you’ve gain weight.

So, looks like it is time to hit the gym, exercise, and lose those excess pounds. But, where do you start? Should you just be running on the treadmill every other day, or just do 100 sit-ups to get that sexy, chiseled abs? Or should you be enrolling yourself in boxing or Muay Thai classes to lose those pounds? Should you bid that tasty fried chicken and cheesy pizzas goodbye and forever be stuck with salad and celery aka ‘rabbit food’?

In this age and time, with current technology and knowledge, there is an abundance of information of what to do and what not to do.

You can get fitness wear to help you in your journey to fitness. There are watches which can monitor your heart rate, breathing patterns as well as amount of calories used in your activities. Most of these watches is able to detect the number of steps you have taken or even how much you have slept (provided, you wear that watch to sleep!).

There are various other tech garments, including compression pants and shirt, as well as inner wear which could help in improving your performance while running or working out – some of which are advanced to pick up data and send it to your smartphones to be analyzed.

    Many athletes swear by expensive compression shorts, socks, tights, and other garments. These tight-fitting items are thought to hold muscles firmly in place and improve blood flow to the muscles, thereby boosting athletic performance. But according to a new study of elite male runners, none of that actually happens.

    • Mirko Francioni says:

      Compression garments are pieces of clothing that fit tight around the skin. In medical contexts, compression garments provide support for people who have to stand for long periods or have poor circulation. These come in varying degrees of compression, and higher degree compression sleeves, such as sleeves that provide compression of 20-30 mmHg or higher, typically require a doctor’s prescription.[1] Compression garments worn on the legs can help prevent deep vein thrombosis and reduce swelling, especially while traveling.

      In sports, form-fitting compression sportswear, usually made of spandex, is commonly worn by athletes and in exercise to prevent chafing and rashes.

    I just don’t understand when some people says that we depend too much on technology and in order to get fit we should go back in time and live the life as our grand parents did.
    Yes, it is true, nowadays we have a lot more of everything, bad and good, but ultimately it remains our choice how and what to eat or train at the gym and so on.
    I believe that all this new technology is helping the average human to cope with a very intense lifestyle, which is the normal routine for many of us.
    I have got a “smart watch” that tells me exactly how much I walk, if I sleep OK, how many steps, how many miles, calories burned, and much more. All this information is then passed through a mobile app where I can do even more, (e.g. share with friends and family), and keep monitoring myself and my progress in everyday fitness goal.

    I really like it and I feel I can do more and better with this technology than without.

    • Mirko Francioni says:

      Hi Renata,
      I agree with you, I am also very satisfied with most of the new technologies and I do not believe we should “regress”.
