An exercise pill – a way to pharmaceutically work out without the hassle of actually finding the time and going to the gym – might be the answer to every couch potato addicted to Netflix and Sunday Night Football's dream. But this pill isn't meant for them: an exercise pill would primarily benefit people who are paralyzed or had a stroke, or patients with spinal cord injuries, for example, and that's good news.
In something out of Brave New World, researchers are now starting to develop a pill that would help patients get the benefits of exercise, such as muscle growth, even when at rest.
Trials of the exercise pill are ongoing with animals. Let's hope they don't result in super muscular pets.
Test trials with animals are already underway but the thought of super muscular guinea pigs or chimps is kind of disturbing.
"They'll let you get muscles that are stronger and faster and reach exercise goals much quicker," said Ismail Laher, co-author of the study from University of British Columbia in Canada in this story from Time.
According to a new review in Trends in Pharmacological Sciences. "This is an achievable goal based on our improved understanding of the molecular targets of physical exercise," said co-author Ismail Laher in a release.

Happy 19th wedding anniversary to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill! The couple wed on this day, Oct. 6, in 1996.
The two began dating while Hill was an opening act on McGraw's Spontaneous Combustion Tour earlier that year. At the time, Hill was newly engaged to record producer Scott Hendricks, but it didn't take long for sparks to fly between Hill and McGraw instead.
"When we started touring together, I wasn't involved with anyone, but she was," McGraw recalls to Country Weekly. "But you can't be around Faith and not fall in love with her. Things just kind of happened. When two people are meant to be together, there's nothing that's going to keep them apart."
McGraw and Hill didn't waste any time in deciding to spend their lives together. While still on the Spontaneous Combustion Tour, McGraw proposed to Hill, in a decidedly unconventional way.
"We were playing at a country music festival, and we had a trailer that was our dressing room," McGraw says. "I had a big mirror that was in there, and right before I went on stage, I wrote 'Will you be my wife?'… I mean 'Will you marry me?' and I went on stage, and when I came off stage, she had written 'I am going to be your wife, yes.' And so, we still have that mirror."
With so much of their lives spent in front of a crowd, the country stars opted for a low-key wedding, eloping in a secret ceremony in McGraw's home state of Louisiana, then resuming their tour only four days later.
At the time of their nuptials, Hill was newly pregnant with their first daughter, Gracie Katherine, who was born on May 5, 1997. A very pregnant Hill can be seen in the music video for the couple's first duet, "It's Your Love," which shot straight to No. 1 and became a multi-platinum hit.
McGraw and Hill, who are also parents to Maggie Elizabeth (born in 1998) and Audrey Caroline (born in 2001), have maintained a successful marriage in spite of their busy careers and constant public scrutiny.
"I think, for us, [the key is] being as normal as possible and raising our family and being in a family situation as much as possible …," McGraw tells EOnline. "Certainly it's different because of what we both do, but we try to keep it as much of a family environment that we can.
"And, most of the time … we try to make that the priority and the primary time that we spend," McGraw continues. "For us, we leave the front doors when we go to work, but when we're home, we don't talk about none of the music that much … It's a whole different world."

On Saturday (Oct. 3), Lady Antebellum will wrap up their Wheels Up 2015 Tour and "step away for a little while," taking a break to spend time with their families, write some new music and gear up to take on the next phase of their career. In addition to preparing for the arrival of his baby boy, trio member Charles Kelley will also be working on a solo project.
Billboard reports that Kelley revealed his plans and debuted several of his solo tunes at an industry event in Nashville on Wednesday night (Sept. 30). One of the songs, "Lonely Girl," was co-written by Chris Stapleton, while another, "The Driver," features Eric Paslay and Dierks Bentley.
"I wouldn't have done this without [bandmates] Hillary [Scott] and Dave [Haywood] giving me their blessing," Kelley told the assembled audience. "Lady Antebellum will always be my focus."
He also covered Tom Petty's "Southern Accents," noting that Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks will be providing harmonies on the recorded version of the song, and the Band's "Ophelia."
"Lady Antebellum will never break up, mark my words," Kelley said during his set. "But I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone."
A release date for Kelley's solo project has not yet been announced, but Billboard reports that it will be issued via Capitol Records. Paul Worley helped produce the project.
Although Lady Antebellum have not revealed how long their break will last, Scott says that "it will probably be a lot shorter than what we probably set out for it to be, because we can't ever really stop." However, the band isn't worried about losing their fanbase during their time away.
"We can take some time off and not feel like we're going to lose it all," Kelley says. "… It's all about the music, so we need to step away and make the best music we can. That's the only way it's going to sustain itself."
