Gym and Studio Sync lets Strava users upload their indoor workouts too – Digital Trends

Why it matters to you

Strava now tracks not only outdoor activities like running and cycling, but gym workouts too, providing a more complete picture of a user’s fitness routine.

Strava[1] (iOS[2]/Android[3]) has been one of the top fitness apps for outdoor athletes for several years now, allowing runners, cyclists, rowers, skiers, and even rock climbers to track and share their workout data online. But the company knows that not all workouts take place outdoors and that many of its users spend plenty of time in the gym too. To better meet the needs of those users Strava is updating its platform[4] by adding a new option called Gym and Studio Sync[5]. This feature not only expands the number of activities tracked by the system, but gives users credit for a variety of indoor workouts they do too.

Gym and Studio Sync allows Strava users to link their account with select gyms, fitness studios, and even other apps to automatically upload workout data directly to their online profiles. This gives Strava, which already sees 11 million activities uploaded each week, the potential to become the one-stop shop for storing all workout data, making it easier to track performance improvements from all activities over time. Of course, the data will also be available for sharing with friends too, sparking friendly rivalries and spurring a bit of competition among users.

Strava

So far, Gym and Studio Sync integration has been announced for Flywheel Sports[6] and Expresso[7] cycling studios, the Fitbod[8] (iOS[9]) and LiveRowing[10] (iOS[11]) apps, Life Time[12] gyms, and the Peloton[13] cycling trainer. This gives users the ability to upload data from their morning spin class[14] or workout routine at the gym for instance, or share the data from a cycling or rowing session that they completed indoors while at home. Previously, those types of fitness routines went untracked within the Strava platform, but now any workout conducted with these partners will automatically be shared to the system.

If your favorite gym or studio is not currently on the list, do not lose heart. Strava promises that it will be expanding the list of supported gyms, studios, apps, and devices over the next few months, bringing more partners into the program. The company says that with the addition of the Gym and Studio Sync program, it will now track more than 31 different types of activities, giving users a more well-rounded fitness experience.

Who Should Take Gelatin Supplements? Could Aid Recovery From …

We may associate gelatin with our favorite gummy snacks and Jello desserts, but new research[1] suggests there may be a health benefit to adding more of this animal byproduct to your diet. According to the research, now published the January issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consuming a gelatin supplement, plus a burst of intensive exercise, can help build ligaments, tendons and bones.

The research found that gelatin supplement increased blood levels of amino acids and markers linked to collagen synthesis in human subjects and improved the mechanics of the engineered lab-grown ligaments. Those results led the team to determine that gelatin supplements may be helpful for athletes, elderly individuals, and others who may need more flexibility and joint support.

“These data suggest that adding gelatin and vitamin C to an intermittent exercise program could play a beneficial role in injury prevention and tissue repair,” the researchers wrote[3].

For their study, the team analyzed both the effect of gelatin supplements on human volunteers, and on artificially grown ligaments to get a closer look at what was going occuring on inside of the body. A total of 8 healthy male volunteers drank a gelatin supplement enhanced with vitamin. Afterwards, the volunteers had their blood taken before and after performing short 5 minute intervals of high-impact exercises (skipping) for an hour .

The researchers believe their findings suggest that gelatin supplements may be useful prevent injury and enhance recovery.

Of course, one does not have to take supplement in order to get a more gelatin into their diet. Bone soups, which are made from boiling down either fish or animal bones, contain large amounts of gelatin as well, in addition to a variety of other important vitamins and nutrients. In addition to gelatin, bone broth also has collagen which also aids in skeletal support.
