Create a niche. KNOW. TRAIN. RETAIN.


FROM THE EDITOR “W hen planning for a year, plant corn. When planning for a decade, plant trees. When planning for life, train and educate people.” Chinese Proverb

I sincerely believe that all personal trainers should have as a guiding principle the motto: “Educate and Train.” Our clients are both students and trainees. The most successful trainers first educate the client, imparting knowledge and addressing “why.” This learning stimulates motivation within the client, resulting in a passion and power to take the next step and develop the skills required to achieve goals within specified time periods. The most successful trainers then train “how” through demonstration and close supervision. Planning for life is then achieved. This month the Gamut presents articles of significance focused on the impact of exercise on the health of cancer survivors, the physiological and psychological benefits of resistance training, women's food fears and fertility, and the impact of exercise during pregnancy considering the rise of gestational diabetes mellitus. Do learn and enjoy!

Females, Food & Fertility by Nancy Clark, MS, RD, CSSD (Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics), who has a private practice in the Boston area (Newton) where she counsels both casual exercisers and competitive athletes and is author of Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition Guidebook. Contact info

“Yea, I stopped getting my period!!! That means I'm training really hard and am finally thin enough.”

problems. This is 2.3 times more than those women who did low intensity exercise.

“Yea, I'm glad I don't have to deal with that monthly hassle anymore.”

The women who did both—trained every day and trained to exhaustion—had the highest rates of infertility (2).

“Yea, now I don't have to worry about getting pregnant!”

Many women fit into that category: marathoners, gym rats, triathletes and fitness enthusiasts, as well as elite athletes. Some of those active women may be simultaneously building their careers and choosing to delay starting a family. They may be unaware that fertility peaks at age 25, with diminishing returns year by year. By the time a woman is 40, her chances of getting pregnant without fertility treatments are far lower.

Freedom from monthly menstrual periods has historically brought pride and pleasure to many female athletes. That is, until they experience infertility when they do want to get pregnant. To their misfortune, many of the same women who were very content having abnormally functioning bodies are now in a state of grief. For some, this is the first time their bodies are not doing what they want them to do: get pregnant! As Gigi Fernandez, Grand Slam tennis player stated, “As an athlete, you have this attitude, ‘I can do anything with my body.’ That’s how you think. So, your biological clock is ticking, but you’re in denial.” She had seven failed fertility treatments.

What girls and women need to know Amenorrhea (loss of menses) is a cause of concern, not a reason to celebrate. Unfortunately, parents or coaches are not teaching this fact to today’s high school girls. Or, the girls may not be really listening to the educational attempts. They are likely more interested in learning how to not get pregnant! The more relevant issue for this age group is that amenorrhea contributes to stress fractures. Yet, a 2014 survey indicates only 17% of 240 female high school athletes knew that amenorrhea makes bones weak. Only 25% knew that girls who skip their periods are prone to getting stress fractures. And, 72% didn’t even know that amenorrhea is abnormal (3).

Infertility in athletic women is a secret source of grief that hides in many couple closets. Infertility affects 1 in 6 women. An estimated 12% of those with infertility are athletes (1). If you are in the childbearing season of your life, or have a Millennial daughter, you likely know one or more athletic women who are struggling to conceive. A Norwegian study with approximately 4,000 women identified two groups who had trouble conceiving:

Despite popular belief, amenorrhea does not happen because a woman is training hard or has low body fat. After all, many female athletes are very lean, train very hard and do have regular periods. Athletes with amenorrhea fail to eat enough to support both exercise and menses. Add stress and perhaps other contributing factors, and

#1. Women who trained every day, 11% of whom had fertility problems. This is three times more than those women who did not train at all. #2. Women who trained until they were completely exhausted, 24% of whom had fertility

NUTRITION Nature halts the possibility of a woman getting pregnant.

being petite. This is not the case. Eating adequate fuel gets the body out of hibernation (warmer hands, more energetic, happier, better mood), restores wasted muscles and allows well-fueled muscles to perform better.

You might think these under-fueled female athletes would be very skinny and losing weight. This is not always the case. When a woman is leaner than her genetic blueprint (as are many athletic women), her body has an amazing ability to conserve energy. Symptoms include cold hands and feet, slow heart rate, lethargy and amenorrhea. This is no surprise that an estimated 65% to 69% of competitive dancers and longdistance runners have amenorrhea compared to 2% to 5% of the general population (4). And, even if an athletic woman does have regular menses, she may not ovulate or have normal levels of reproductive hormones. This happens unknowingly in more than 75% of highly trained and recreational athletes.

How much more does a woman have to eat? She should eat at least 13.5 calories per pound of lean body weight that she does not burn off with purposeful exercise. For a woman who weighs 120 pounds and has 18% body fat, that's 102 lbs. x 13.5 cal/lb - about 1,400 calories. Now add in another 500 or so calories for a hard workout, and now you can understand why a 1,200-calorie diet can hinder fertility. A sports dietitian can help correct this imbalance, as well as help female athletes find peace with food. If you have a hard time “eating normally,” please use the referral network at www.SCANdpg.org to find your local sports RD. You might also want to read No Period. Now What? (www.NoPeriodNowWhat.com) by N. Rinaldi & S. Buckler. This invaluable resource includes the personal fertility experiences of the authors as well as more than 400 athletic women who have had trouble conceiving. The book includes tips that help active women overcome their food fears, consume more fuel, boost fertility, become pregnant and enjoy a healthier lifestyle afterwards. Yes!

CAUTION: Some female athletes have become pregnant on the belief amenorrhea is a convenient form of birth control. False. Women ovulate two weeks before they menstruate. If they just happened to be ovulating (fertile) prior to resuming menses, they can end up pregnant.

No Period. Now What? If you (or your athletic wife or daughter) have stopped having a monthly menstrual period or are having trouble conceiving, you (they) may need help reversing the situation. The simple advice to “just eat a little more and exercise a little less” to correct the energy imbalance is much easier said than done. Amenorrhea is commonly wrapped up in disordered eating patterns. An estimated 20% to 60% of female athletes have a complicated relationship with food. They fear that eating more will lead to “getting fat,” hurting athletic performance and losing their identity of

The Effect of Prenatal Exercise on Gestational Diabetes Mellitus by Catherine Cram, MS, the owner of Comprehensive Fitness Consulting, LLC, a company specializing in providing pre- and postnatal fitness continuing education certifications and information to health and fitness professionals. Contact info

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) appears to be on the rise in the United States with the CDC suggesting that the prevalence of GDM may be as high as 9.2% (http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/ 2014/13_0415.htm). This disease is defined as the onset of impaired glucose intolerance (IGT) during pregnancy as diagnosed from a glucose screening test (also called a glucose challenge test or GCT) between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy. Pregnant women who develop GDM are at a higher risk of complications during pregnancy and delivery. And, the fetus may develop macrosomia and/or neonatal hypoglycemia. In addition, women who develop GDM have a greater than seven-fold increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Also, there is some suggestion that babies born to mothers with GDM have a greater risk of developing impaired glucose tolerance.

glucose intolerance or GDM and found that conclusive evidence is not available to guide practice (Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2012 Jul 11;7:CD009021.). They suggest that more welldesigned randomized trials, with standardized behavioral interventions are needed to assess the effects of exercise on preventing GDM and other adverse pregnancy complications. Other studies (Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2014 Oct 20., Br J Sports Med. 2013 Jul;47(10):630-6) have concluded that exercise does reduce the incidence of GDM and may play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes in women who had GDM (Best Pract Res Clin Obstet Gynaecol. 2015 Jan;29(1):110-22.).

What impact may exercise during pregnancy have on the development of this disease? There has been an increase in the number of studies that have looked at the impact of prenatal exercise on the development of GDM, as well as how exercise may help with the treatment in women who have it. Recent data suggests that exercise during pregnancy may positively impact the development and treatment of GDM, although the results are somewhat mixed. This may be due to the quality of the studies and type, or the intensity and duration of the fitness programs. A Cochrane Review (considered a key resource in evidence-based medicine) reviewed randomized and cluster-randomized trials assessing the effects of exercise for preventing pregnancy Back to Table of Contents

GAMUT, Issue 58, Oct/Nov 2017


TRAINING GUIDELINES AND PROGRAMS The bottom line? The inclusion of an exercise program during pregnancy may be a positive step towards reducing the incidence of GDM, but we still don’t know what exercise threshold is needed to maintain or improve glucose tolerance. A reasonable prescription would be to set intensity levels at a moderate to somewhat hard level on the Borg scale (not so high that the woman is out of breath or feels discomfort) allowing her to maintain a duration of at least 30 minutes, 5-6 days a week. Maintaining a higher frequency (near 6 days a week) may play a greater role in maintaining normal daily glucose tolerance, so the exercise intensity should be modified to enable her to maintain >30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week. The type of exercise should be one that is comfortable and easily modified throughout pregnancy, and if possible be weight bearing.

 Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT): Impaired glucose tolerance is a pre-diabetic state of hyperglycemia that is associated with insulin resistance and increased risk of cardiovascular pathology. IGT may precede type 2 diabetes mellitus by many years.  Fetal Macrosomia: Fetal macrosomia is a term used to describe a newborn who's significantly larger than average. A baby diagnosed with fetal macrosomia has a birth weight of more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces (4,000 grams), regardless of his or her gestational age. Fetal macrosomia makes vaginal delivery difficult and puts the baby at risk of injury during birth and increased risk of health problems after birth.  Neonatal hypoglycemia: Neonatal hypoglycemia is defined as a plasma glucose level of less than 30 mg/dL (1.65 mmol/L) in the first 24 hours of life and less than 45 mg/dL (2.5 mmol/L).

Key words:  Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM): Gestational diabetes mellitus is a disorder characterized by an impaired ability to metabolize carbohydrates, usually caused by a deficiency of insulin or insulin resistance, occurring in pregnancy. It disappears after delivery of the infant but, in a significant number of cases, returns years later as type 2 diabetes mellitus. Treatment consists of self-monitoring of blood glucose, insulin administration, increased activity, and a meal plan that controls the amount of carbohydrates eaten.

 Cochrane Reviews: This is a database of systematic reviews and meta-analyses that summarize and interpret the results of medical research. The Cochrane Library aims to make the results of well-conducted controlled trials readily available and is a key resource in evidence-based medicine.

Medicine.1,2 In each of our studies, the participants adhered to the following exercise protocol:

If you are a regular reader of this column, then you are well-aware of the numerous physiological benefits of properly performed resistance exercise. You may recall that these include reduced resting blood pressure, improved blood lipid profiles, enhanced glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity, increased muscle mass and bone density, faster gastrointestinal transit speed, decreased arthritic and low back discomfort, increased muscle strength and functional abilities, increased resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure; and reduced risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, osteoporosis and some types of cancer. However, if these health and fitness advantages are not adequate for potential clients to adopt a lifestyle that includes regular resistance exercise, there are many psychological benefits associated with sensible strength training. Over the past few years, I have been privileged to conduct several research studies with Dr. James Annesi of the Atlanta YMCA on changes in psychological measures following a 10-week program of circuit format strength exercise. Dr. Annesi is an international leader in health psychology, as well as a prolific researcher who has published more than 100 scientific studies in his field. My role in our cooperative research projects was to conduct the training programs in compliance with the exercise guidelines published by the American College of Sports

Self-Concept, Total Mood Disturbance, Depression, and Fatigue. They also made nonsignificant improvements in ratings of Tension, Vigor, Anger and Confusion. A larger study of 52 previously sedentary women (mean age 56 years) examined the relationship between feeling state changes immediately following an exercise session and mood changes after completing our standard 10-week program of resistance training and aerobic activity.4 The results showed that a single exercise session produced a positive psychological response pattern (higher ratings of Positive Engagement, Revitalization and Tranquility; lower ratings of Physical Exhaustion) most of the time. Furthermore, the positive changes in feeling states from single exercise bouts were associated with positive long-term changes in Total Mood Disturbance. Another study5 was designed to assess physiological and psychological responses to different instructional techniques. Using our standard 10-week program of resistance exercise, 39 older untrained women (mean age 65 years) were placed into a group that received association-format instruction or a group that received dissociation-format instruction. The association-format group featured instructor interactions focused on physical performance with limited casual conversation and distraction from the exercise tasks. The dissociation-format featured instructor interactions focused less on physical

Approximately 70 percent of age-predicted maximum heart rate 20 minutes 2 or 3 nonconsecutive days per week

Dr. Annesi's role in conducting these research studies was to provide the appropriate validated instruments (psychological questionnaires) for the participants to complete at the beginning and end of the 10 26-week exercise programs. The data collection tools included instruments such as the Profile of Mood States, the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale 2, the Exercise-Induced Feeling Inventory, Exercise Self-Efficacy Scale, Multidimensional Body–Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ), and the Weight Efficacy Life-Style Questionnaire. At the completion of the training period, Dr. Annesi performed statistical analyses on all of the data to determine any significant psychological changes attributable to the exercise program. Thus far the results have been very interesting. In one of our first studies3 a sample of 17 untrained older women (mean age 67 years) participated in our standard 10-week program of resistance exercise and aerobic activity. In addition to attaining significant physiological improvements in muscular and cardiovascular measures, the women experienced positive psychological changes in ratings of Physical

At the end of the training period, both groups attained significant and similar physiological improvements in percent body fat and muscle strength. Both groups also experienced significant and similar after-exercise increases in the psychological components of Positive Engagement, Revitalization, and Tranquility. However, only the dissociation-form participants experienced an after-exercise reduction in Physical Exhaustion. Likewise, only the dissociation-format subjects significantly reduce their Tension and Depression scores over the course of the study. Our next research study6 included a wait-list control group (N=40) and a strength training group (N=48) of older women (mean age 62 years). After 10 weeks of our standard resistance exercise program, the previously sedentary participants demonstrated significant after-exercise improvements in Positive Engagement, Revitalization, Tranquility, and Physical Exhaustion. Control group subjects did not realize significant improvements in any of the psychological measures. In addition, for the strength training group, scores on Physical Self-Concept were significantly correlated with after-exercise changes in Physical Exhaustion. We recently conducted a study similar to our other research with one exception. Instead of

assessing psychological changes in previously sedentary participants, this study was conducted with trained individuals who had just completed our introductory strength training program. As in our other research, the 46 program participants performed 1 set of each resistance exercise, using a weightload that could be performed for 8 to 12 controlled repetitions, as well as 20 minutes of standard aerobic activity. The physiological changes were consistent with those in our previous studies, showing significant improvements in prevent body fat (-1.4%), fat weight (-2.8 lbs), and lean weight (+2.3 lbs). However, the psychological changes were less pronounced than those in our previous studies. These intermediate level exercisers did not experience statistically significant changes between the pre-training and post-training psychological assessments (Mood States, Exercise-Induced Feeling Inventory, ExerSelfEfficacy Items, MBSRQ-Body Areas Satisfaction, and Weight Efficacy Life Style Questionnaire). It was hypothesized that these more experienced exercisers had already established many mood improvements and were now maintaining them. Based on the findings from these five studies, it would appear that previously inactive adults and older adults who complete a 10-week introductory program of strength exercise and aerobic activity attain significant improvements in psychological assessments of Physical Self-Concept, Total Mood Disturbance,

Although previously trained exercisers continued to make significant physiological improvements, they did not experience significant changes in the psychological measures. These results suggest that participation in a structured exercise program provides both physiological and psychological benefits. The findings further indicate that the psychological changes are more likely to occur during the initial (10week) conditioning session. References Contact Wayne at wwestcott@quincycollege.edu.

TRAINING CANCER SURVIVORS by Tammy Petersen, MSE, the Founder and Managing Partner for the American Academy of Health and Fitness (AAHF). She has written two books on adult fitness, SrFit™ and Functionally Fit™, and designed corresponding training programs. Contact info

Once a virtual death sentence, cancer today is a curable disease for many and a chronic illness for most. With continued advances in strategies to detect cancer early and treat it effectively along with the aging of the population, the number of individuals living years beyond a cancer diagnosis can be expected to continue to increase. Approximately 15.5 million Americans in the United States are cancer survivors. By 2026 that number is expected to reach 20 million. Anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, from the time of diagnosis through the rest of his or her life is considered a cancer survivor. And while not all cancer survivors are older adults, many are simply because of the cumulative effect of years of lifestyle issues that are risk factors for their disease. Survivors less than or equal to 19 years old comprise 1% of the cancer survivor population, 6% of survivors are aged 20-39 years, 33% are aged 40-64 years and 60% (more than half) are aged greater than or equal to 65 years. Breast cancer survivors are the largest constituent group within the overall population of cancer survivors (22%), followed by prostate cancer survivors (19%) and colorectal cancer survivors (11%) (3). Gynecological and other genitourinary cancers each account for 9% of cancer survivors, followed by hematological cancers and lymphoma (7%) and lung cancer (4%). Other cancer sites account for much smaller percentages and together are responsible for 19% of the total number of survivors. In terms of stratification by gender, more than two thirds (69%) of all female cancer survivors have a history of breast (41%), gynecological (17%) or colorectal (11%) cancer. For male survivors, two thirds (66%) have a history of prostate (39%), other genitourinary (such as testicular or renal) (14%) or colorectal (13%) cancer. Not surprisingly, cancer survivors are often highly motivated to learn more about things like nutrition, supplements and herbal remedies, and exercise that might improve treatment outcomes and ultimately

their survival and quality of life. For many of the most important nutrition and physical activity questions faced by cancer survivors, the scientific evidence comes only from observational and laboratory animal data or unreliable reports from poorly designed clinical studies. Moreover, the findings from these studies are often contradictory. Very few controlled clinical trials have been done to test the impact of diet, nutritional supplements or nutritional complementary methods on cancer outcomes among cancer survivors. In an effort to identify and evaluate the scientific evidence related to optimal nutrition and physical activity after the diagnosis of cancer, the American Cancer Society (ACS) convened a group of experts in nutrition, physical activity and cancer. The findings of this group guide healthcare providers, cancer survivors and their families through the mass of information and help them make informed choices related to diet and exercise. The Expert Committee reviewed all of the scientific evidence and best clinical practices for different types of cancer and “graded” both the quality and certainty of the scientific evidence for factors affecting the most common cancers. As was already mentioned, there are few clear answers to many questions, a wide range of sources and often conflicting information. But, these experts agree that even when the scientific evidence is incomplete, reasonable conclusions can be made that can help to guide choices in the areas of nutrition and physical activity. Physical activity may help cancer patients build up their physical condition; decrease the number of comorbid conditions (like heart disease and diabetes); reduce drug interactions; help cancer patients cope with treatment; restore good health; improve quality of life during and after treatment; and help cancer patients and survivors maintain independence as long as possible Physical rehabilitation programs similar to those for cardiac rehabilitation may be effective in managing, controlling or preventing adverse medical and psycho-

ACROSS THE GAMUT social outcomes manifested during cancer survivorship. For example, exercise programs are being developed as interventions to improve the physical functioning of persons who have problems with mobility as a result of therapy and are also being shown to be efficacious for weight control after breast cancer treatment, lessen the effects of chronic fatigue, improve quality of life, prevent or control osteoporosis as a result of premature menopause and prevent or control future or concurrent comorbidities. Diet, weight and physical activity interventions carry tremendous potential to affect length and quality of survival in a positive manner and prevent or control morbidity associated with cancer or its treatment.

public places with risk for microbial contamination, such as gyms, for 1 year after transplantation.  Survivors suffering from severe fatigue from their therapy may not feel up to an exercise program, so they may be encouraged to do 10 minutes of stretching exercises daily.  Survivors undergoing radiation should avoid chlorine exposure to irradiated skin (e.g., swimming pools and whirlpools).  Survivors with indwelling catheters should avoid water or other microbial exposures that may result in infections, as well as resistance training of muscles in the area of the catheter to avoid dislodgement.  Survivors with significant peripheral neuropathies may have a reduced ability to perform exercises that use the affected limbs because of weakness or loss of balance. They may do better with a stationary reclining bicycle, for example, than walking outdoors. For the general population, the ACS and other health organizations recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least 5 days per week to reduce the risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. These levels of activity have not been studied or tested specifically in cancer survivors, however. For the general population and for cancer survivors, any movement is likely beneficial. Therefore, although daily and regular activity may be preferred and may be a goal, any steps that are taken to move from a sedentary to an active lifestyle should be encouraged. For survivors wanting maximum benefit, the message should be that the health benefits of exercise are generally linear, with benefit related to higher intensity and duration, although extremely high levels of exercise might increase the risk for infections.

General Physical Activity Guidelines for Cancer Survivors In general, physical activity is likely to be beneficial for most cancer survivors. Recommendations on the type, frequency, duration and intensity of exercise should be individualized to the survivor's age, previous fitness activities, type of cancer, stage of treatment, type of therapy, and comorbid conditions. Particular issues for cancer survivors may affect or contraindicate their ability to exercise. Effects of their cancer treatment may also promote the risk for exercise-related injuries and other adverse effects. The following specific precautions are from the American Cancer Society:  Survivors with severe anemia should delay exercise, other than activities of daily living, until the anemia is improved.  Survivors with compromised immune function should avoid public gyms and other public places until their white blood cell counts return to safe levels.  Survivors who have completed a bone marrow transplant are usually advised to avoid exposure to
