At last, we know how fast the Grim Reapers
A study comparing the walking speeds of elderly men found the faster a man walk, longer he lives.
The study was done over five years surveying 1,700 Australian men aged 70+.
266 died. With their deaths, the researchers were able to estimate the Grim Reaper's speed.
The Grim Reaper catches you if you walk less 1.8 miles an hour!
Admittedly, the study was tongue in cheek.
But it did find that older men who walk at least three MPH live longer.

Oh man. This is one of the best things we've ever heard!

As we've heard from other fitness experts, lifting weights with a combination of cardio is a great way to lose weight, while getting your body in better shape.
FitPerez reader Jodie wants to know if lifting weights at different speeds will yield different results and wrote our favorite boxer Alex Brenes for some help! She asked:
Love that you are a new contributor on FitPerez & I am happy to say that I am going to come down and try your class at DeLaBBc.
My question is - I am an average size 27 year old who frequently lifts weights at the gym. Should I lift weights as fast as possible? Or should I slow them down in certain parts of the lifting?
According to Alex:
I can tell you fast reps with low weight will help you with definition and speed. Use heavier weights for strengthening and muscle gain. (Muscle is heavier than fat).
I hope to see you at DeLaBBC some time and keep your hands up…

Even boys are getting Bieber fever! At least when it comes to their hair.
Cozy Friedman of Cozy's Cuts For Kids says 6 out of 10 tweens, 10 and older come into her shop wanting the Justin Bieber haircut, they're just too embarrassed to ask for it.
Tommy Ledger even went to extreme with his 'do by getting a $175 chemical straightening treatment for his wavy hair.
What parent would let their 14 year old kid spend that much money on hair!?
Tommy explains "Girls always play with it in class. It’s kind of frustrating sometimes. I’m trying to skateboard and they want to touch my hair.”
Yeah that must be SUPER annoying.
One stylist says there hasn't been this much demand for a male celebrity's haircut since Keanu Reeves was in Speed. Not that any of these kids would know what that movie is since they weren't even born yet!
