Some idiot headline writer. Typical.

The article itself looks sensible.

In Australia there are laws about running stories that are clearly just adverts without marking them as such. Not quite sure why the same isnt over here. Tell me that story is nothing more than an advert for her workout videos.

Running does not "design feminine muscles". Guess I better give it up then  

Surely you could just go for a run and do a few of Tracy Anderson's isolations as well, if you were that bothered about designing feminine muscles.

Um, are 'feminine' muscles the ones you use in childbirth?

Ironic that someone going on about feminine muscles appears to have a large pair of feminine muscles made entirely of silicon.

PhilPub - I had not noticed, well spottted.

If it's a Daily Mail article, I'm surprised it doesn't say running gives you cancer.

Ha.

In post #2, I said it was a sensible article.  I was really reacting to the fact that the headline had nothing to do with the content of the article.  When I said the content was 'sensible', I really meant that it was based on an argument that is defendable (unlike the headline)... rather than being entirely sensible!

"Performing repetitive movements in fitness (such as running) creates a distinctive imbalance in the muscular structure and causes the large muscles in the legs to charge up"

well duh!!

Sorry, could not resist, running does not give you cancer but these chaps do.

Nope, but i used to subscribe to the mag. after a year i found it quite repetitive, and had too many ads for my liking.

however, i read in the Guardian that all this running is upping my sperm count...
