Ryan Shay -- RIP -- Died of Heart Attack Jogging

The elite distance runner, Ryan Shay collapsed and died yesterday (Saturday) during the U.S. men's marathon Olympic trials.

They said he had an enlarged heart but was cleared by the doctors. But still, I truly believe that human beings were NOT designed for long distance jogging...

That belief is based on studies that show the heart is NOT exercised during jogging. All jogging really does is train the lungs to take in oxygen.

And have you looked at most joggers? They are almost anorexic and have sunken chests. And then compare them with the college sprinters. Those guys are built! They do interval training. Fast, slow, fast slow without constant wearing down of the heart that steady exercises like airobics or jogging...

In fact, you don't even need to jog or run. You can train and sculpt your body using Craig Ballantyne's exercise program, Turbulence Training...
