Page 8 March 4th, 2010 Food, Valley News and Views Strength Training Good i e Garden-Robinso , Food and Nutrition Specialist, NDSUI "Now why am I doing this again?" I asked myself as I lifted the weight with my legs. I remembered to exhale in time with the exertion. I glanced around the room. Surrounded by a dozen muscular guys using various machines and free weights, I felt like I was in the training room for an action movie. 1 heard a loud grunt as someone dropped a heavy free weight on the other side of the room. Oh, yeah, strength training is good for my muscles and bones, I reminded myself. Tonight was lower-body strengthening night. I kept hearing the teacher's comment replaying in my head, "You're stronger than you think!" Maybe counting backward to zero will make this set of raps easier, I thought a bit hopefully. I think my leg muscles wanted me to get up, walk out to my vehicle and drive home. I have been taking a series of weight training classes with my 14-year-old son. He needed to take the classes to be able to be in the gym with me. I never had used the weight machines at the gym, so I received permission to join the teenagers class. "Morn, my arms feel like noodles," my son said as he rubbed his arms after using one of the upper body strengthening machines. "My legs feel like they're made of Jell-O," I thought to myself. I walked to the next machine on my somewhat wobbly legs. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember how to use it. The machine looked a bit like a medieval torture device I'd seen in an old movie. I quickly read the instructions on the machine, adjusted the seat, added some weight, lifted the arms of the machine and got in. Then I stretched some muscles that apparently never had been used fully. Feeling like a wishbone about to break, I retreated and decided that I would try this machine another day. Although I prefer walking on treadmills and riding the bikes, which I know are good for my heart, I'm going to keep working on the strength training machines. Fortunately, my enthusiastic son is a very motivating "exercise buddy." Strength training has numerous benefits, and research has shown that strength training can help people who are healthy, as well as those who have some health concerns, including heart disease or arthritis. While weight training often is considered a male pursuit, research is showing numerous benefits for everyone regardless of their age or gender. Of course, consulting with yourhealth-careprofessional before beginning an exercise program is good advice, especially if you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, arthritis or diabetes. According to research summaries provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, strength training can help decrease pain associated with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. In one study, strength training reduced osteoarthritis pain by 43 percent. Strength training helps keep your bones strong and can decrease your risk of fractures and falls, which become more common as people age. Having more muscle mass as a result of strength training also boosts your metabolism, thereby helping with weight maintenance or loss. Muscle mass burns more calories than fat. Strength training has been shown to help people with diabetes improve their blood glucosecontrol. For some people, strength training also helps improve mental health and can improve their sleep quality. Before beginning a strength training program, be sure to get proper training to maintain the right form and prevent injury. Work at the proper intensity, too. Start with a weight that is comfortable for you. Keep a journal of your activities so you can see your progress through time. Be patient with yourself.

A Wee Bit of Irish Humor in Anticipation of St. Patrick's Day Patton staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. He took offhis shoes to avoid waking his wife, Kathleen. He tiptoed as quietly as he couldtowardthe stairsleading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful. Managing not to yell, Patton sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt was cut in many places and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood. He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed. In the morning, Patton woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt and Kathleen staring at him from across the room. She said, 'You were drunk again last night weren't you?' Patton said, .'Why you say such a mean thing?' 'Well,' Kathleen said, 'it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly ....... it's all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror. Ole's Cliffhanger So Die was hiking in the mountains of Norway and he slips on a wet rock and he falls over the edge of a five- hundred-foot cliff, and he falls twenty feet and he grabs hold of a bush that's growing out of a rock. And there he is, he's hanging looking down at this deep fiord down below him -- certain death -- and his hands start to perspire and he starts to slip on this bush and he yells out, "Is anybody up dare. 2'' And he heard a deep voice rings out in the fjord, "I'm here, Die. It's the Lord, Die. Have faith. Let go of that bush and I will save you." Ole looked down, and he looked up, and he says, "Is anyone else up dare?"
