Book Description Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'Endlessly fascinating and full of surprises. Easily one of my books of the year' BILL BRYSONThe myth-busting science behind our modern attitudes to exercise: what our bodies really need, why it matters, and its effects on health and wellbeing. In industrialized nations, our sedentary lifestyles have contributed to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diseases like diabetes. A key remedy, we are told, is exercise - voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. However, most of us struggle to stay fit, and our attitudes to exercise are plagued by misconceptions, finger-pointing and anxiety.But, as Daniel Lieberman shows in Exercised, the first book of its kind by a leading scientific expert, we never evolved to exercise. We are hardwired for moderate exertion throughout each day, not triathlons or treadmills. Drawing on over a decade of high-level scientific research and eye-opening insights from evolutionary biology and anthropology, Lieberman explains precisely how exercise can promote health; debunks persistent myths about sitting, speed, strength and endurance; and points the way towards more enjoyable and physically active living in the modern world.'Myth-busting, illuminating, brilliant - Lieberman will completely change the way you think about your body' Professor ALICE ROBERTS, presenter of Our Incredible Human Journey.

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. In industrialized nations, our sedentary lifestyles have led to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diseases like diabetes. The answer, we are told, is exercise - voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. However, most of us struggle to stay fit, and we are plagued by misconceptions and anxieties about it. Drawing on over a decade of research, Lieberman shows that, in fact, we evolved to be physically active but not to exercise. Offering illuminating insights from evolutionary biology and anthropology, he explains why and how exercise can promote health, debunks myths about sitting, speed, strength and endurance, and points the way towards how we can be more physically active in the modern world. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780241309278
