Too much exercise can kill you. The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine heart conditions in athletes. Intended for anyone who competes in endurance sports like cycling, triathlon, running races of all distances, and cross-country skiing, The Haywire Heart presents the evidence that going too hard or too long can damage your heart forever. You’ll find what to watch out for, what to do about it, and how to protect your heart so you can enjoy the sports you love for years to come. The Haywire Heart shares the developing research into a group of conditions known as “athlete’s heart”, starting with a wide-ranging look at the warning signs, symptoms, and how to recognize your potential risk. Leading cardiac electrophysiologist and masters athlete Dr. John Mandrola explores the prevention and treatment of heart conditions in athletes like arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and flutter, tachycardia, hypertrophy, and coronary artery disease. He reviews new research about exercise intensity and duration, recovery, inflammation and calcification, and the ways athletes inflict lasting harm. These heart problems are appearing with alarming frequency among masters athletes who are pushing their bodies harder than ever in the hope that exercise will keep them healthy and strong into their senior years. The book is complete with gripping case studies of elite and age-group athletes from journalist Chris Case—like the scary condition that nearly killed cyclist and coauthor Lennard Zinn—and includes a frank discussion of exercise addiction and the mental habits that prevent athletes from seeking medical help when they need it. Dr. Mandrola explains why many doctors misdiagnose heart conditions in athletes and offers an invaluable guide on how to talk with your doctor about your condition and its proven treatments. He covers known heart irritants, training and rest modifications, effective medicines, and safe supplements that can reduce the likelihood of heart damage from exercise. Heart conditions affect hardcore athletes as well as those who take up sports seeking better health and weight loss. The Haywire Heart is a groundbreaking and critically important guide to heart care for athletes. By protecting your heart now and watching for the warning signs, you can avoid crippling heart conditions and continue to exercise and compete for years to come.

Lennard Zinn was riding his bike hard up a steep climb on Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder, a challenging ride he had done a thousand times before. When his heart began to flop like a fish in his chest, and his heart rate monitor jumped from 155 beats per minute to 218 and stayed pegged there, his first reaction was simple: I went into denial. Zinn rode his bike to the ER and was admitted to the cardiac unit, still wearing his VeloNews cycling kit, for an overnight stay. Four months later, Zinn finally accepted his own retirement: his forty-year career of riding hard and racing harder was over, victim to tachycardia. Today, Zinn can still enjoy the sport he loves, albeit more slowly, thanks to new advances and research on his condition, known as athlete s heart . 80% of America s 40 million endurance athletes are between the ages of 30 and 55 and they are driven to run, ride, and swim into top physical condition. Despite their lean looks and healthy glow, some of these athletes will join Zinn and thousands of hard-racing runners, triathletes, and cyclists in his diagnosis. Arrhythmias, hypertrophy, and myocardial cell failure are appearing with alarming frequency among older athletes who endured years of intense sports training and competition they thought would keep them healthy and strong into their senior years. As the most recent generation of masters athletes enters its 50s, heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths are rising precipitously in what was supposed to be the healthiest generation of active athletes yet. The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine heart problems in athletes. Starting with a wide-ranging look at the symptoms and how to recogize your potential risk, The Haywire Heart reveals the race to document the problem and find effective treatments. Complete with gripping case studies, a frank discussion of exercise addiction, advice on talking with your doctor, and the most trusted recommendations for treatment and avoidance, The Haywire Heart is the athlete s guide to heart care, hearth health, and long life.

Pallbearers Envying the One who Rides

unfairness appear on the upswing . He glances out at the street . It ' s raining ; the

In Pallbearers Envying the One Who Rides, we see the world through the melancholic eyes of Heart - blood-pumping organ, lover, poet and sceptical philosopher of the everyday. Heart reflects on the vagaries of love, the cruelties of time, on 'whether he is masculine enough', and on 'how some folks get pearls, others pebbles'. Dividing the Heart poems is the long Oh, Immobility, Death's Vast Associate, a jazzy disquisition on human isolation and inaction in the midst of a planet full of people brooding over similar concerns. With his characteristic black humour, maniacal imagination, and in straightforward language that rollercoasters in tone but with a mythic undertow, Stephen Dobyns has written a cycle of medieval morality poems for a new dark age.
