Exercise - Get weight loss advice, cardio and strength training ...
Back in the olden days when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I did some very intricate strength training workouts. Some were split routines, doing upper body one day, for example, and lower body the next. Sometimes I would really detail it out - Chest, shoulders and triceps on day one, back and biceps on day two and lower body on day three, later, rinse and repeat. There's no doubt that split routines can serve us well, especially if we're short on time and/or our goal is to put on muscle. But, if you're goal is overall fitness and weight loss, total body circuit workouts may be just what you need to build strength, endurance and burn calories. What I like about these types of workouts is, first, they reflect how we use our bodies in real life.

James Cameron, the acclaimed filmmaker behind sci-fi classics like Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2, as well as the blockbuster behemoths Titanic and Avatar, participated in a surprisingly candid Reddit AMA on Saturday afternoon. The self-proclaimed “king of the world” was online promoting Years of Living Dangerously, a 9-part documentary series about the filmmaking styles of top directors, which will premiere on Sunday, April 13 on Showtime. And Redditors, as is their wont, didn’t let Cameron off easy, prodding him with questions ranging from how to find missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370—Cameron knows how, apparently!—to his thoughts on climate change, Leonardo DiCaprio, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and more.

But the mechanisms behind this psychological phenomenon have remained unclear. A study now suggests that simply taking a break does not bring on inspiration — rather, creativity is fostered by tasks that allow the mind to wander. The discovery was made by a team led by Benjamin Baird and Jonathan Schooler, psychologists at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
