New Moms Need Workout Programs That Are Less Structured, More Flexible

Often running on empty, new moms may need a bit more flexibility and support to ease back into exercise after giving birth, according to a Kansas State University researcher. Emily Mailey, assistant professor in kinesiology, said when a mom has survived the first several weeks of having a new baby and is ready to start adding exercise — and all of its benefits — back into her life, a more flexible approach works better than a specific regimen.

Weight-Bearing Exercises Promote Bone Formation in Men

Osteoporosis affects more than 200 million people worldwide and is a serious public health concern, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Now, Pamela Hinton, associate professor in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, has published the first study in men to show that long-term, weight-bearing exercises decrease sclerostin, a protein made in the bone, and increase IGF-1, a hormone associated with bone growth. These changes promote bone formation, increasing bone density.

New Study: Pre-Pregnancy BMI Directly Linked to Excess Pregnancy Weight Gain

It’s well known that excessive weight gain during pregnancy can have a lasting negative impact on the health of a mother and her baby. A new University of Michigan-led study finds that for young mothers (women who gave birth between the ages of 15 and 24), pre-pregnancy body mass index, or BMI, and ethnicity might signal a likelihood for obesity later in life.
