Next Level

release date: May 17, 2022
Next Level
A comprehensive, physiology-based guide to peak performance for active women approaching or experiencing menopause—from the author of Roar, renowned exercise and nutrition scientist Dr. Stacy Sims For active women, menopause hits hard. Overnight, your body doesn’t feel like the one you know and love anymore—you’re battling new symptoms, might be gaining weight, losing endurance and strength, and taking longer to bounce back from workouts that used to be easy. The things that have always kept you fit and healthy just seem to stop working the way they used to. But menopause doesn’t have to be the end of you kicking ass at the gym, on the trail, in the saddle, or wherever you work out. Once you understand your physiology, you can work with it—not against it—to optimize your performance. That’s where Stacy Sims, PhD comes in. In Next Level, you’ll learn the underlying causes of menopause: the hormonal changes that are causing all the symptoms you’re feeling, and their impact on your wellness and performance. Then, what you really came for—what to do about it. Inside you’ll find science-backed advice about training, nutrition, sleep and recovery and supplements, as well as sample exercise routines, meal plans, macronutrient planning charts, and case studies from real women Stacy has coached through the transition. It’s the ultimate guide to navigating the Next Level.

Bomb Scene Investigation

release date: Apr 20, 2021
Bomb Scene Investigation
The FBI''s Chief Explosives Scientist takes readers to blast zones, forensics laboratories, field tests, and more in pursuit of modern history''s most notorious bombers. Join his dedicated team as they work disassembling, reassembling, detonating, and studying explosives to identify (and hopefully incarcerate) criminals bent on mass destruction, and to prevent others from wreaking further havoc. Oklahoma City. The Boston Marathon. Syria. The USS Cole. The Collar Bomber. There is no shortage of tragic bombings in today''s world, where terrorism--waged by hate groups and radical individuals alike--is among the defining fears of a generation. But what if history and forensic science reveal an even more sinister truth: that bombs have been a tool of terror for more than a century, since explosives emerged? Bomb Scene Investigation threads the history of bombings with a twenty-first century understanding of the materials and mechanics of dangerous explosives through the eyes of America''s chief expert--the first working FBI official granted permission to share bomb investigation stories while still at the agency. Follow along as Dr. Kirk Yeager leads his impressive forensic team into crime scenes of mass destruction--literally hot on the heels of those who have tried to blow our sense of security to bits. From Oklahoma City to the Boston Marathon and more, Dr. Yeager''s team has been at the front lines of today''s most important bomb scene investigations--meticulously putting the charred pieces back together to identify culprits around the world. Looking back on history and his career, Dr. Yeager shows that evil is not a new permutation in human behavior, and that science--even the science of explosives--is a distinctly human endeavor, for better or for worse. Bomb Scene Investigation unveils the fascinating and often frightening world of bomb detectives through the lens and mind of the FBI scientist, often darkly humorous, known as "Dr. Bomb."

ROAR

release date: Jul 05, 2016
ROAR
Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one. Because most nutrition products and training plans are designed for men, it’s no wonder that so many female athletes struggle to reach their full potential. ROAR is a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for active women. This book teaches you everything you need to know to adapt your nutrition, hydration, and training to your unique physiology so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology. Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. Sims, PhD, shows you how to be your own biohacker to achieve optimum athletic performance. Complete with goal-specific meal plans and nutrient-packed recipes to optimize body composition, ROAR contains personalized nutrition advice for all stages of training and recovery. Customizable meal plans and strengthening exercises come together in a comprehensive plan to build a rock-solid fitness foundation as you build lean muscle where you need it most, strengthen bone, and boost power and endurance. Because women’s physiology changes over time, entire chapters are devoted to staying strong and active through pregnancy and menopause. No matter what your sport is—running, cycling, field sports, triathlons—this book will empower you with the nutrition and fitness knowledge you need to be in the healthiest, fittest, strongest shape of your life.

The Bicycling Big Book of Cycling for Women

The Bicycling Big Book of Cycling for Women
Women are built differently, ride differently, train differently, burn different macronutrients as fuel, and have a different relationship with their bikes than men do. It''s only natural they should need their own comprehensive cycling book. The Bicycling Big Book of Cycling for Women is an instructional manual geared specifically toward women. It breaks down the sport of cycling into easily digestible sections, beginning with the history of women''s cycling and progressing into equipment, lifestyle, technique, training, and fitness goals. The book also includes a women-specific section that covers cycling while menstruating, cycling while pregnant, how menopause affects training, and how specific parts of the female body are uniquely affected by cycling. The Bicycling Big Book of Cycling for Women will serve as an indispensible, lifelong guide for every female cyclist.

Rusch to Glory

release date: Oct 01, 2014
Rusch to Glory
Rebecca Rusch is one of the great endurance athletes of our time. Known today as the Queen of Pain for her perseverance as a relentlessly fast runner, paddler, and mountain bike racer, Rusch was a normal kid from Chicago who abandoned a predictable life for one of adventure. In her new book Rusch to Glory: Adventure, Risk & Triumph on the Path Less Traveled, Rusch weaves her fascinating life''s story among the exotic locales and extreme conditions that forged an extraordinary athlete from ordinary roots. Rusch has run the gauntlet of endurance sports over her career as a professional athlete-- climbing, adventure racing, whitewater rafting, cross-country skiing, and mountain biking--racking up world championships along the way. But while she might seem like just another superhuman playing out a fistful of aces, her empowering story proves that anyone can rise above self-doubt and find their true potential. First turning heads with her rock climbing and paddling skills, Rusch soon found herself spearheading adventure racing teams like Mark Burnett''s Eco-Challenge series. As she fought her way through the jungles of Borneo, raced camels across Morocco, threaded the rugged Tian Shan mountains, and river-boarded the Grand Canyon in the dead of winter, she was forced to stare down her own demons. Through it all, Rusch continually redefined her limits, pushing deep into the pain cave and emerging ready for the next great challenge. At age 38, Rusch faced a tough decision: retire or reinvent herself yet again. Determined to go for broke, she shifted her focus to endurance mountain bike racing and rode straight into the record books at a moment when most athletes walk away. Rusch to Glory is more than an epic story of adventure; it is a testament to the rewards of hard work, determination, and resilience on the long road to personal and professional triumph.

The Women's Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts
Time is every woman''s most precious commodity—and a lack of it is the number one reason, in survey after survey, that women give for why they don''t exercise.

All it takes is 15 minutes to achieve lifelong results—and women are more likely to stick to an exercise plan if it''s chopped down to those 15 minutes. The Women''s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts is both an introduction to the fundamentals of short workouts and a comprehensive collection of hundreds of the most effective ones. These workouts have been designed for every fitness goal, from total body conditioning to targeting trouble spots with exercises like the 15 Minute Flat-Belly-without-a-Single-Crunch Workout. Other highlights include: - an eating plan with delicious meals that take 15 minutes or less to prepare - workouts for when you''re stuck in traffic or traveling and can''t make it to the gym - hundreds of tips from America''s best trainers, nutritionists, and exercise scientists

Move a Little, Lose a Lot

release date: Jan 20, 2009
Move a Little, Lose a Lot
Escape Your Desk Sentence! Dr. James Levine, one of the country’s top specialists in obesity, says America suffers from “sitting disease.” We spend nearly ten to fifteen hours of our day sitting–in cars, at our desks, and in front of the television. The age of electronics and the Internet has robbed us of the chance to burn up to 1,500 to 2,000 calories per day, leaving Americans less active (and much heavier) than we were thirty years ago. We are facing a human energy crisis. What you need, according to this doctor’s orders, is to get moving, or nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). NEAT is as simple as standing, turning, and bending. Research proves that daily NEAT activity burns more calories than a half hour running on the treadmill. Just by the very act of standing and moving, you can boost your metabolism, lower your blood pressure, and increase your mental clarity. It’s about using your body as it was meant to be used. Move a Little, Lose a Lot gives you literal step-by-step instructions for small changes that equal radical results: • Give at the office–burn 2,100 calories a week just by changing your daily work routine. • Hey, Einstein–just like the scientist who thought up his most famous theory while riding his bike, you can increase production of new brain neurons in as little as three hours. • Tired of being tired–reduce fatigue by 65 percent with low-intensity NEAT workouts. • Don’t forget–an Italian study showed active men and women were 30 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
