What is your fallback?

What is your fallback?

To come out of stress, one friend will ask you to drink and another will ask you to meditate. What is your fallback drink or meditate?

To overcome hurt, one friend will ask you to take revenge and get even, and another will ask you to forgive and get ahead with your life. ‘What is your fallback’? Revenge or forgiveness?

Duryodhana said, in his own words, “I know what is right but I am not able to indulge in it. I know what is wrong but I am not able to avoid it.” He needed a fallback. His fallback was his uncle Shakuni, and resultantly, Duryodhana moved from bad to worse. So in any situation we all knows what is right and what not right, so whichever way you will fallback, you will be taken in that direction.

Arjuna’s thought was little different. He was allowing his personal emotions to dominate his sense of duty, and hence wanted to escape from the responsibilities. He needed a fallback. His fallback was Krishna, so as a result, Arjuna was restored to his greatness.

At some point or the other, we all need a fallback.

In the morning we will be given option to getup and go for walk / exercise or continue the sleep. ‘What is your fallback’ makes all the difference.

Choose Well.


You have potential!!!

Everyone is having great will power, potential and determination, has the capacity to achieve great milestones. The only difference is that some are using this potential in their favour and others are using against.

Since most of the people are using that potential against them so they will not allow you to use your potential for your own benefit. They are looking for clone copy.

It required great insight and sometime you have to oppose the people for something that you want to do for your own benefit – so that they will allow you.

If you continue with persistence and consistency soon you will be standing different from the crowd as a role model for someone.

It’s not that you did all of these to become roles model, but there is someone out their; seeing your journey and achievements, also started exploring his own potential for his own benefit.


Why Cycling???

Thinking about joining the cycling family? Here are the reasons you should get on your cycle…

The health benefits of cycling include muscle toning, improved cardiovascular health, and better blood circulation. It is one of the simplest forms of working out as a form of moderate physical activity that is required by the human body. It is not only an exercise; it is also used as a means of transport in many countries. Cycling helps in incorporating physical activity into your daily life.

Health Benefits of Cycling

The human body requires physical activity for normal functioning. At least thirty minutes of moderate to intense physical activity is very important and is required in order to achieve long-term health. Other than the physical health benefits, there are social and mental health benefits that make cycling an enjoyable activity as well. These health benefits include the following:

1. Cycling improves mental well-being

There are so many ways that exercise can boost your mood: there’s the basic release of adrenalin and endorphins, and the improved confidence that comes from achieving new things or getting closer to that goal.

2.Cycling promotes weight loss

The simple equation, when it comes to weight loss, is ‘calories out must exceed calories in’. So you need to burn more calories than you consume to lose weight. Cycling burns calories: between 400 and 1000 an hour, depending on intensity and rider weight.

3. Cycling builds muscle

The resistance element of cycling means that it doesn’t just burn fat: it also builds muscle – particularly around the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves. Muscle is leaner than fat, and people with a higher percentage of muscle burn more calories even when sedentary.

4. Enjoy second breakfasts

Since a half hour ride to work should be burning between 200 and 500 calories, you’ve got a license to enjoy a second breakfast with fellow members of the group.

5. Better lung health

Cycling will enhance your lungs capacity and improve lungs overall health.

6. Reduce Chances of heart disease

Cycling raises your heart rate and gets the blood pumping round your body, and it burns calories, limiting the chance of your being overweight.

7. Cycling is low impact

Running is weight bearing activity – and therefore injury rates are higher in running. Cycling, by contrast to running, is not weight bearing and low impact exercise. So it is good for knee health.

The lack of weight bearing also means that cycling does not do as much to increase bone density as other sports – so it’s a good idea to add a little strength training in to your program.

8. Sleep better

Cycling reduce anxiety, as this is byproduct of exercise, which elevates the ability for sound sleep. Exercise also protects against weight gain with age, which is another cause of sleep dysfunction.

9. Strengthen your immune system

Cycling had huge benefits on the health of the upper respiratory system – thus reducing instances of the common cold.

10. Grow your social circle

Cycling is an incredibly sociable sport. Grassroots cycling revolves around cycling club culture – which in turn revolves around the Sunday club run: several hours of riding at an intensity that enables easy chat, interrupted by a cafe stop (or the occasional puncture).

Joining a cycling club or group is an excellent way to grow your social circle, and if you’re new to riding – you’ll probably find all the maintenance and training advice you may have been looking for there, too.

Royal Cycle Club – Bhiwadi is a cycling group of young and passionate professional and businessmen. Anyone is welcome to join and enjoy the huge list of cycling benefits.


Any Suggestions?

suggestion.jpeg

I often used to think while giving suggestion to someone; that if it is genuinely good suggestion why do not I apply it on myself.

The day when I merge deep into this thought, it was the day of my transformation. Now also I have lots of suggestion – but I hesitate to tell them as I know my suggestion is good for me only and not for others. Once you know that something is not good for others how can you tell them?

Now I apply all of them on myself.
I also understood that it required effort; sometime lots of effort to apply them — so what — if I want to improve / change myself then why worried about the effort.
Else this is life long process – keep giving the suggestion and never apply on yourself.

In this process – what I have learn is that — I was just one step back in the process of learning and growth —- the moment I started apply in myself. It become life changing experience.

Now it does not matter – If I give any suggestion to anyone or not. Instead I prefer not to give because everyone know what is good for them — then what is the significance of my suggestion?

My suggestion is good for me only and not for anyone else.

Now you can also think — that the above message is also a suggestion that I am telling you to create your own suggestion.
Language is such a difficult medium to express your own experience. That s why create your own experience and learn form it.

Create your own suggestion for yourself and work on them.

Anyways — I have told all of this because I am intelligent enough to know that you are intelligent!!!


Why you should strengthen your core?

Core exercises are an important part of a well-rounded fitness program. Aside from occasional situps and pushups, however, core exercises are often neglected. Still, it pays to get your core muscles — the muscles around your trunk and pelvis — in better shape. Read on to find out why.

Core exercises improve your balance and stability

Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.

Core exercises don’t require specialized equipment or a gym membership

Any exercise that involves the use of your abdominal and back muscles in coordinated fashion counts as a core exercise. For example, using free weights in a manner that involves maintaining a stable trunk can train and strengthen several of your muscles, including your core muscles.

You may also try several specific core exercises to stabilize and strengthen your core. Some examples of core exercises include various types of planks, situps and fitness ball exercises.

Core exercises can help tone your abs

Want more-defined abdominal muscles? Core exercises are important. Although it takes aerobic activity to burn abdominal fat, core exercises can strengthen and tone the underlying muscles.

Strong core muscle makes it easier to do most physical activities

Strong core muscles make it easier to do many activities, picking the items from floor, get a glass from the top shelf and bend down to tie your shoes. Strong core muscles are also important for athletes, such as runners, as weak core muscles can lead to more fatigue, less endurance and prone to injuries.

Weak core muscles can also leads to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries. Strengthening core muscles may also help improve back pain.

Core exercises can help you reach your fitness goals

Aerobic exercise and muscular fitness are the primary elements of most fitness programs. But to have a well-rounded fitness program, consider including core exercises in the mix as well.

Whether you’re a beginner taking the first steps toward fitness or a committed fitness fanatic hoping to optimize your results, a well-rounded fitness program is the best way to reach your fitness goals and a strong core workout is must to have well-rounded fitness regime.


Off Road Dirt Biking

Did you know that dirt bike riders generally make better street riders? If you’re a road rider looking to improve your form, go out and get on a dirt bike!.

It’s considered an extreme sport to most, but at the basic level (if you’re a beginner), riding a dirt bike can be an excellent way to stay healthy and adventurous.

While my first experience of off road dirt biking helps to realize little bit all of the below benefit. I have done in friends house in Romania. Marius Dumitrescu – thanks for the wonderful experience.

    • Increased heart rate: Dirt bike riding increases your heart rate in a way that is comparable to jogging or low-level endurance exercise for beginner like me.
    • Increased strength: While dirt bike riding places you on a motorized device, a significant amount of body strength is still required to turn, lift and operate your bike. You use your quadriceps, hamstrings and other leg muscles while riding over uneven terrain, and arm strength is required to lift your handle bars when going off jumps and pushing your bars back down on your landing.
    • Balance:  Using your leg muscles while riding will help keep you balanced as you accelerate up and down hills and over jumps. As your body braces against bumps, it will tighten its various muscles to keep in balance.
    • Endurance: The amount of continuous time spent on your dirt bike will help improve your cardiovascular health by improving your endurance.
    • Get outdoors: It allows people of all ages to get up and get off their couches and go outside. The sunshine and fresh air helps relieve stress and provides nutrients that help your body function at an optimal level.
    • Brain stimulation: The mere act of riding will activate the brain, and those who ride a motorcycle more often can improve cognitive functions.
    • Provides varied versions of exercises: Balancing an off-road vehicle is like sitting on a stability ball. Controlling the handlebars – especially through the terrain – is like doing bench press. Standing up and down would be like squats.
    • Staying healthy: To most people, motorbiking may look like it does not require as much physical effort, but once you get on the bike, you will see that it requires a lot of core muscle as well as arm and leg muscles to do the many different tricks and jumps.
    • Good posture: Posture really does make a difference in riding ability, and once riders realize that, they want to maintain the best posture possible. This choice, while made simply to improve performance on the bike, can help become a healthy habit off of the bike, too.

I still remember when Marius was preparing the bikes. Last few days in Romania after that I have to come back. Thanks Marius for such a great experience.

In the background you can see grapes crop getting ready. Very soon it will be used to make wine.

Marius and me getting ready for small trip off road with all our gears in place.

It is one of very rejuvenating experience after completing just a small trek. I can very well understand how good it can feel if we take the extreme off road biking.

I can never forgot the taste of that recipe (chorba with bread), Marius grand mother made for us. It was very delicious.
