Richard’s family are said to be “devastated” by his death and have flown to Turkey, with North Belfast MP John Finucane saying all families involved are “desperately wanting to bring their children back”.

His friends, Declan Carson and Aaron Callaghan, who are believed to have had the same treatment, ended up on life support machines.

Their condition has now improved and they are off life-support.

Police were attempting to trace the dentist where the trio, who were described as “three fit and healthy young lads”, are understood to have undergone a tooth whitening procedure.

New research is revealing how genetic differences in the fat in men’s and women’s bodies affect the diseases each sex is likely to get.

University of Virginia researchers Mete Civelek, PhD, Warren Anderson, PhD, and their collaborators have determined that differences in fat storage and formation in men and women strongly affect the activity of 162 different genes found in fat tissue. Further, 13 of the genes come in variants that have different effects in men and women.

Some of those genes identified have already been connected with conditions such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The findings help explain the differing health risks men and women face, and they set the

Woman too ‘scared’ to join gym transforms body on her own, becomes fitness influencer

An Australian woman lost 50 pounds in a matter of months, all without use of a gym.

Angel Bowyer, 22, began to gain weight because of her poor eating habits. “My diet consisted of mostly fast food, pizza, KFC, [McDonald’s] and eating out. I don’t think I ate anything green in two years,” she said to news.com.au.

However, three years ago, Bowyer decided to revamp her lifestyle and focus on her fitness. Unfortunately, she was too “scared to join a gym,” she told the outlet, limiting her options to just outdoor or home exercise.

WOMAN DROPS 165 POUNDS WITHOUT GIVING UP FAVORITE FOODS

Despite this, Bowyer managed to whittle her frame down using only bodyweight exercises and HIIT workouts.

The Juggling Plank Is the Ultimate Upper Body Exercise

There’s no easy plank. That’s a fact. Whether you’re on your forearms, on your hands, on your side, or anything in between, you’re going to feel the burn. But while most planks are known as being a core exercise, the juggling plank will surely be the hardest upper body exercise you do all week.

The juggling plank is anything but easy. The exercise involves starting in a high plank, then balancing on one arm as you scoop up a lightweight medicine ball ($33) in the other. Based on the name, you can probably guess what comes next: You get to channel your inner circus performer as you juggle the ball back and forth from hand to hand, all while keeping your balance and doing your best not to drop it.

While the exercise is undoubtedly challenging—not only requiring muscle strength, but also some coordination—it’s a favorite of Anthony Abenoja, a

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: The Full Body Workout

A common fitness craze today involves a full-body approach to every workout. You hit every major muscle group in different ways to create “muscle confusion”, and prevent overtraining in one area and complacency in your workout routine. People pay big money for CrossFit, P90X, Insanity, and more.

But what if I told you these concepts were already built in to a martial arts workout that would also teach you how to defend yourself in all kinds of situations? Since you’ve already read the title of this article, you know I’m talking about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After my standard one-hour class, plus 30 minutes of grappling, I am consistently sore in every major muscle group, and minor ones I didn’t know existed.

The beauty of a BJJ workout is each technique covers so many different body parts, and coordinates them into fluid movement. As an example, let’s look at a common … Read More

Ninja Body Conditioning – The Importance of the Ninja’s Junan Taiso in Your Ninjutsu Training

One of the most overlooked aspects within the art of Ninjutsu – the part of training that is loved by some students while hated by others – is the ninja body conditioning exercises known as the Junan Taiso. Love it or hate it, this article explores the importance and necessity of this critical element of your progress and eventual mastery.

The ninja’s junan taiso, or “body conditioning” methods developed over time from yoga-like exercises to increase not only the ninja’s flexibility, but also his ability to counter certain natural tendencies of the human condition. These exercises, while formalized and passed down as a unified set of “forms,” are not to be seen as “all there is.”

While it is not within the scope and context of this article to describe the actual exercises themselves, suffice it to say that you may have to substitute other exercises and movements for the … Read More

Building an MMA-Ready Body: The Pit Workout

In recent years, a huge number of MMA-branded workout routines have risen and fallen, each claiming to be better than the last at getting your body into its best fighting shape. Some, while effective, peak after only a month’s practice, and cease delivering results. Others fail to ever produce results of any kind, no matter how dedicated and diligent you may have been in keeping up with them. Despite being touted as an MMA workout, many of these routines simply don’t work out at all.

That is not the case with The Pit Workout, however. The Pit Workout is an intense, tri-weekly workout routine designed explicitly to bring out the best fighter in you by focusing on agility, stamina, and raw power. Featuring a wide variety of different one-hour programs, some of which may surprise you, The Pit Workout is also a surprisingly difficult workout. However, that difficulty is part … Read More
