cholesterol helps repair muscle

Saturday, June 05, 2010

"As you exercise, your muscles can become sore because they are rebuilding muscle mass. More cholesterol may result in a more robust inflammatory response. We know that inflammation in some areas, such as near the heart, is not good, but for building muscles it may be beneficial, and cholesterol appears to aid in this process."

The scientists believe that cholesterol has an important role in muscle tissue repair critical in building muscle mass. It shows that there is still a lot about cholesterol that we don't know, Riechman said

    As a person who does much weight training, this is very interesting. Despite my Trainer's best effort, I rarely get muscle soreness. Perhaps my diet is the reason why.

vispassana meditation

Sunday, May 16, 2010

I recently spent 10 days in Noble Silence learning the Vispassana method of meditation. I am such a sissy but I made it through the whole ten days and am so proud of myself. I made it through Air Force bootcamp many years ago so I figured if I could do that, I could do anything. And I did.

If you are interested in this intense technique to help you live in balance go to dhamma.org. The 10 days are free, room and food, the whole thing. I highly recommend it. They have many sites in the U.S.A. and abroad. I went to So. Georgia.

Linda
