By, Jen Delgado Yoga training can be of enormous benefit to anyone pursuing a fitness regime. Yoga tones and strengthens your body uniformly, unlike some fitness training regimens that can lead to overdevelopment of particular muscle groups. Yoga exercises , meditation and postures also improve your balance, strength and overall flexibility, making you more capable of pursuing a weight loss regimen. Performing yoga postures regularly offers a number of physical benefits, including: - Increased flexibility - Increased lubrication of joints, ligaments and tendons - Massaging the body's internal organs - Detoxifying the body - Toning the muscles Yoga postures and exercise focus on all of the joints of the body, including joints you probably don't use regularly. Yoga exercises can strength problem joints such as the knees, hips and ankles. Yoga training also leads to increased spinal flexibility and core strength, both of which can reduce chronic problems such as lower back pain and increase your overall physical strength. Because yoga also exercises ligaments and tendons, your joints will lubricate more effectively, reducing joint pain. Yoga training may be the only form of exercise that stimulates your internal organs. This helps prevent disease by maintaining organ health. It can also help make you more aware of potential health problems Many of us forget about the importance of stretching. When we don't stretch we are more prone to injuries, stiff muscle, no flexibility, spasms, and much more. Yoga stretches and stimulates the muscles and organs of the body in a uniform manner. This allows increased blood flow to all parts of your body, which helps to flush out the toxins that can accumulate in your body's tissues. Increased detoxification can increase your energy levels, making you more likely to follow an exercise program designed for weight loss. Yoga training also offers a number of emotional and psychological benefits. Yoga exercises, postures and meditation increase your powers of mental concentration and can significantly reduce levels of stress and anxiety. Yoga can also help you feel better about your body and your self, by increasing your strength and flexibility, and by allowing you to feel more in touch with your body. Not all types of yoga can help you lose weight. There are many forms of yoga, and many of them don't raise your heart rate enough to contribute to weight loss. However, some forms of yoga can raise your heart rate and help burn fat. I did some research and found a type of Yoga that will definitely increase your heart rate while also help you with some weight loss. It's called Vinyasa, or flow yoga. This form of yoga is based on a series of postures known as the Sun Salutations. If you'd like to use yoga training to help lose weight, try one of these forms of vinyasa yoga: - Ashtanga yoga is a very strenuous type of yoga practice. Practitioners are encouraged to sign up for series courses, which can increase your motivation by giving a financial incentive to keep returning to classes. The postures are also easy to learn, so once you're finished with your course, you can continue doing them at home. - Power yoga is an intense yoga workout that provides cardiovascular training - Hot yoga is done in rooms heated to around 101 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you sign up for one of these course, expect to sweat. They are popular among those with joint problems. It's called Birkram Yoga. I've done this type of yoga and it felt like a summer day in Las Vegas. If you are overweight or suffer from any physical disabilities or illnesses, tell your yoga instructor at the beginning of the first class; she can help you practice safely.
If you are overweight and want or need to lose a significant amount of fat due to underlying medical issues or just want to look and feel healthier but have tried everything you can think of with no success then maybe the next step for you is one of the many extreme weight loss boot camps. Extreme weight loss boot camps will definitely put you through the paces. Each one is different in their approach but all will help their clients learn how to eat, the right way, and help you get your body moving so you can burn the fat and lose the weight. They should also help you change the bad habits you have gotten yourself into and teach you what you need to know to keep the weight off for good. If you are going to make this commitment to yourself then you need to prepare. Do some research of the facility you choose or research several so you get the best deal. Registering to be a part of one of these camps is not cheap but they are worth every penny if you realize the goals you have set for yourself. Depending on where you choose to attend one of these camps cost can range from $665 per day for a one week stay down to $250 per day for 30 days or longer stays. Workouts are custom tailored to your specific needs and abilities by certified fitness trainers who oversee your workouts by getting right in there with you, not by walking around with a clipboard and a whistle. Although losing weight is the major aspect of these camps, learning how to shop for healthy foods and then bringing that food home and learning to cook it should be as important as losing the weight. You may be successful at losing the weight while you are living at the camp but if you do not learn to change the bad habits you have with food then when you leave, it will be too easy to fall back into the same old routines that made you fat to begin with and you will gain the weight back in no time. When researching this article we found that there are very few that require you to cook your own food. Most have executive chefs on board who cook the meals for the clients registered at the camps. This teaches you nothing about how to prepare your own food once you leave the camp. This is why people fail at diets they never learn how to cook healthy meals on their own. Now we are not saying that you can never again ever have something sweet or something that you shouldn't have. Moderation should also be taught, because even if you do eat something good for you, you can still overdo and eat too much of a good thing. Extreme weight loss boot camps can be a wonderful way to lose those excess pounds and learn new, healthy ways to keep the weight off and live a healthier lifestyle.
By, Brett Bauer There are so many Ab exercises to tighten and tone your mid section. One of my favorite exercises for abs are planks. What is great about planks is that you can do them anywhere since they require no weights or machines. You use your body weight and can do several variations depending on your level. A traditional plank is with your elbows and forearms to the ground keeping your back and legs in a straight line. Make sure you keep your abs tight. At first you may only be able to hold for a few seconds. Slowly work your way up gradually to hold for longer time increments. A second variation is planking with extended arms. This will give a different angle and resistance on your core. A third variation are side lateral planks. You can do short or extended arms with a side lateral plank. You want to create a "triangle" in the empty space keeping your hip from dropping. Try adding any variation of planks into your workouts. In conjunction with a healthy diet, planks are a great exercise to tone your abs and strengthen your core.
