HEALTH AND FITNESS: Sports physiology in the Tour de France | Features

The 2020 Tour de France, postponed from the traditional July start due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is underway. This year the race covers over 2,100 miles in 21 days of racing, comprised of team and individual time trials as well as stages through the cities, countryside and mountains of France. The Tour de France is especially interesting to me because it provides an excellent opportunity for a short lesson in sports physiology.

All the riders in the Tour are exceptionally fit since their bodies have adapted to years of dedicated, intense training. Endurance sports like cycling are dependent on the delivery of oxygenated blood to the muscle to produce ATP, the energy needed to sustain exercise.

The riders have large, strong hearts, allowing them to pump more blood to the muscle. Within the muscle there is an increase in the number of capillaries, the small blood vessels that deliver blood

No Teams Paused ‘From a Sports Medicine Perspective’

Penn State Athletics said in a statement Wednesday that no teams remain paused “from a sports medicine perspective” after releasing its most recent COVID-19 testing numbers among athletes.

The athletic department reported 50 new positive cases among 859 tests conducted for the week of Sept. 5-11. The positivity rate was 5.8 percent. The results were reported to the university’s COVID-19 dashboard, which is updated twice weekly.

Last week Penn State said it had paused practices for several teams after reporting 48 positive results among 920 tests administered. The 5.2 positive rate was among the factors that led Penn State to pause some teams’ practices, the athletic department said.

Asked whether any of those teams remained paused, an athletic department spokesperson said Wednesday that, “We do not currently have any teams paused from a sports medicine perspective.”

Penn State did not identify the teams that were paused last week, though football

Federal Judge Dismisses Florida Dentist’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Claim

A federal judge in Florida has dismissed a suit for business interruption insurance payments by a Florida dentist who claimed the damages were caused by COVID-19 virus and related civil authority shutdowns of dental services.

U.S. District Court Judge John Badalamenti for the Middle District of Florida dismissed the claim, finding that the dental practice’s loss or damage asserted was “not due to a covered cause of loss” and, more importantly, the policy expressly excludes coverage from damages caused by a virus.

This Florida dismissal is another in a string of cases where insurers have prevailed in coronavirus business loss cases. The rulings in insurers’ favor have come from federal courts in California, Texas and New York, a District of Columbia court and a Michigan state court.

Meanwhile, federal judges in California and Missouri have thus far declined to dismiss their separate cases against Travelers Insurance and Cincinnati Insurance.

7 Warning Signs You Should Stop the Keto Diet

Unless you’ve been living on a desert island, you’ve probably heard the buzz about the keto diet. This high-fat, low-carb eating plan has gained a major following in the last few years for helping people drop weight fast. In a 2020 survey, 8% of people said they had tried keto in the last year.

Success on a ketogenic diet all comes down to adjusting your metabolism by consuming specific amounts of macronutrients. Getting your calories from 75% fat, 20% protein, and just 5% carbohydrate forces the body to enter a metabolic state called ketosis, in which fat is burned for fuel. It sounds like a weight-loss dream, but this macronutrient-bending eating plan isn’t for everyone. In fact, drastically changing up your macros can result in some pretty unpleasant side effects. Plus, many health professionals have cautioned that keto isn’t a healthy long-term solution for keeping weight off.
