National Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month

******************

By Ron Munden 

The theme for this year is:  #Every1KnowsSome1.  The mission is to highlight how common domestic violence is and that it is more than physical violence.

Did you know?

*The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year.

*Every 9 seconds, a woman in the U.S. is beaten or assaulted by a current or ex-significant other. 

*1 in 4 men are victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.

*Here’s another shocking statistic: the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 is 6,488. The number of women who were murdered by current or ex-male partners during that same time frame is 11,766, according to the Huffington Post. That’s almost double the number of people who were killed fighting in the war.

People who are in an abusive relationship will stay with their partner for a number of reasons:

*Their self-esteem is totally destroyed, and they are made to feel they will never be able to find another person to be with.  The cycle of abuse, meaning the ‘honeymoon phase’ that follows physical and mental abuse, makes them believe their partner really is sorry and does love them.

*It’s dangerous to leave. Women are 70 times more likely to be killed in the weeks after leaving their abusive partner than at any other time in the relationship, according to the Domestic Violence Intervention program.

*Statistics suggest that almost 5 percent of male homicide victims each year are killed by an intimate partner.

*They feel personally responsible for their partner, or their own behavior. They are made to feel like everything that goes wrong is their fault.

*They share a life. Marriages, children, homes, pets, and finances are a big reason victims of abuse feel they can’t leave.

11-Minute Body-Weight Workout

Health – February 13, 2022

from  TheNew York Times

An 11-Minute Body-Weight Workout With Proven Fitness Benefits

******************

Five minutes of burpees, jump squats and other calisthenics, alternating with rest, improved aerobic endurance in out-of-shape men and women.

Five minutes of burpees, jump squats and other calisthenics significantly improve aerobic endurance, according to one of the first randomized, controlled trials to test the effects of brief body-weight workouts. The study’s findings are predictable but reassuring, at a time when many of us are relying on short exercise sessions in our homes to gain or retain our fitness. They provide scientific assurance that these simple workouts will work, physiologically, and our burpees will not be in vain.

Last year, when the pandemic curtailed traditional gym hours and left many people hesitant to exercise outside on crowded sidewalks or paths, quite a few of us moved our workouts indoors, into our living rooms or basements, altering how we exercise. Some of us purchased stationary bicycles and started intense spin classes or turned to online personal trainers and yoga classes. But many of us started practicing some version of a body-weight routine, using calisthenics and other simple strength-training exercises that rely on our body weight to provide resistance.

Body-weight training has been a staple of exercise since almost time immemorial, of course. Usually organized as multiple, familiar calisthenics performed one after another, this type of exercise has gone by various names, from Swedish Exercises a century ago to the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Five Basic Exercises (5BX) program in the 1960s, to today’s Scientific 7-Minute Workout and its variations.
