Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects the median nerve, which runs through a narrow passage called the carpal tunnel in the wrist.

I remember in college when I asked a professor how he was able to read two books a week, he responded, “The brain is (like) a muscle. You need to exercise it. The more you do, the more you can lift.” And so I try to live that way. Sports science and psychology have been […]
The legs are often ignored by gym-goers. If your pants cover them up, what’s the point in working them out if you can’t show them off? First off, this ignores the beauty of shorts! Second off, exercising the legs can actually have more of an immediately positive impact on your body than arm exercises (though […]
You’d think it’s a leading question, but there’s legitimacy to it. A recent report in the New York Times checked into it.
