I read an exerpt from "lights out" on amazon yesterday and it sounded like they were saying that exercise was bad for you due to your body thinking its fighting for its life - stress etc. If you've read the book or know what i'm on about could you comment?

Cheers

Chris

Chris- my take on this is that americans seem to fall into two camps: exercisers and non exercisers. The exerciseres are by and large endurance athletes who in the view of lightsout, crossfit, and evolutionaryfitness (to name a few) impose a chronic non-adaptive stressor to the body ie. they do too much of the same stuff. The lightss out prescription regarding exercise is to lift weights, stretch a lot, and do sprinting and running about once or twice per week. I think the crossfit model is pretty damn close to this. they also make the point that training in the evening under artificial lights in the dead of winter can and wil do bad thigs to our physiology....it makes some sense and they have some pretty good science to back it up.
I hope that helps!
Robb

Cheers Robb,
That great. Like I said - I only had an exerpt to read and was hoping you'd be able to fill me in on what I was missing. Good to hear i'm on the right track.

Chris
