Question Cardio without cardio exercise

http://www.amazon.com/Cardio-Without.../dp/B00AG3T1YM


Cardio Without Cardio Exercise (Why 90% of People Do Aerobic Workouts Wrong) , by Logan Christopher.


This is available in UK and USA, just wondered if anyone had read it at all? I don't have a copy but am curious as to whether the person just covers HIT, HIIT style work etc, it seems at first glance it may be against long cardio sessions, marathons and such, which I've already read are bad for us anyway...so, that would be nothing new.

The author refers to information from a German Study which indicates that people who run more than 30 miles (5 hours a week) seemed to suffer extensive damage to their DNA and then goes on to say that anti-oxidants will help in that area.

Whether he gives any details of the actual study or a source, I have no idea.


I can't reference the page number etc because this is taken directly from the few pages available on the Kindle viewing that Amazon permits the potential buyer to see.

With regard to the DNA damage, here's an interesting piece:


To determine if 6 weeks of supplementation with antioxidants could alleviate exercise-induced DNA damage, we studied 21 runners during a 50 km ultramarathon. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of two groups: (1) placebos (PL) or (2) antioxidants (AO) (1000 mg vitamin C and 400 IU RRR-alpha-tocopheryl acetate). The comet assay was used to assess DNA damage in circulating leukocytes at selected time points: pre-, mid-, and 2 h postrace and daily for 6 days postrace. All subjects completed the race: run time 7.1 +/- 0.1 h, energy expenditure 5008 +/- 80 kcal for women (n = 10) and 6932 +/- 206 kcal for men (n = 11). Overall, the percentage DNA damage increased at midrace (p <.02), but returned to baseline by 2 h postrace, indicating that the exercise bout induced nonpersistent DNA damage. There was a gender x treatment x time interaction (p <.01). One day postrace, women taking AO had 62% less DNA damage than women taking PL (p <.0008). In contrast, there were no statistically significant differences between the two treatment groups of men at any time point. Thus, endurance exercise resulted in DNA damage as shown by the comet assay and AO seemed to enhance recovery in women but not in men.


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15059637


The first point, highlighted blue (by me), may indicate that the author took a piece out of context, if DNA is not damaged for good but appears to return to normal levels without intervention; all depending on which study he read, of course.


The second point, also highlighted, is interesting in itself; do antioxidants in fact behave differently in men and women?
