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.


Will-Power

Image result for willpower

We are often taught a simple yet powerful saying,“Where there is will, there is way“. Is it true? Does it works for everyone?

First let’s find out what the word “will” means. So, Will is the ability of making Conscious Choices. We all have free will and make our own choices, even if these are to obey the commands of others. And Will-Power basically signifies motivation to exercise will. It is the ability to resist short-term gratification in pursuit of long-term goals or objectives.

All of us wish to achieve many things in life. But usually many of us do not succeed in achieving everything that we desire. And often we tend to curse our fate or misfortune. But the fact is that we have only ourselves to blame for our failures. If our Will-Power is strong, we can easily overcome all hurdles. It is not enough that we wish to achieve something. We should have the proper willpower to carry out our planes. As it is also that:

“People do not lack strength; they lack will.” ~ Victor Hugo

“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.” ~ Niccolo Machiavelli

Remember that most of us fail even in making small better changes in our daily routine because of lack of will power only. Strength comes next.


Silence between the words…

Knowledge come from outside but Wisdom is from within. Knowledge has voice but wisdom is silent.

Good news is people may not have potential to speak but everybody has potential to become silent.

Intelligent person is utterly silent even if he is speaking. His words also has silence. Words has sound, but between 2 words you will find the silence. We often miss that. The moment we start catching the silence between the words, we have started our journey towards wisdom. Else we are gathering information. Words will only give information but silence between words will give wisdom.

Yoga helps us to understand the silence between the word. It will leads to journey from knowledge to wisdom.


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. ‘Who 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 workout or continue the sleep. ‘What is your fallback’ makes all the difference.

Choose Well.


Impact of Yoga

Everyone know that what is making them weak, but still doing it. It takes months and sometimes years to accepts and realise it.

Anything that is making a man weak physically, intellectually and spiritually – reject it. It cannot be true. Truth is strengthening, truth is purity and truth is enlightening.

Yoga helps us to understand and gives us will power to accepts those truths which will makes muscle of iron, nerves of steel, undisturbed and stable mind.

Have a great day.🙏


6 Best Workouts/Activities For Weight Loss

Obesity can lead to a number of serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and some types of cancer.One method that can help a person lose weight is to limit the number of calories taken in through their diet. The other way is to burn extra calories with exercise.Working out isn’t enough on its own to make weight loss happen. There’s so much else that goes into weight loss and body fat loss.

1. Strength Training

It’s a misconception that doing weights bulks you up, it in fact also helps you slim down and enhanced your metabolism. The secret to shedding pounds is actually to build muscles.  Another option is circuit training, which involves moving quickly from one exercise to the next, and burns more calories than a typical weight workout. It blasts fat and sculpts muscles. Strength train at least three times a week on nonconsecutive days, targeting all the main muscle groups and using compound exercises. Compound exercises burn more calories and are more effective at stimulating muscle growth than single-joint isolation exercises. Include compound exercises in your routine, such as dead lifts, lunges, squats, bench press, military press, pushups and pullups.

2. Brisk Walking

Brisk Walking is the easiest weight loss exercise, and low intensity of course. If you’re a beginner, start by walking 3 days per week for at least 20 minutes and then gradually increase the frequency and duration of your walks until you are walking 30-60 minutes per day and six times a week. Experts suggest that brisk walking for 30 minutes at a moderate speed can help you burn 150 to 200 calories. So just put on your walking shoes, turn on the music and walk off your weight.

Mission Peak Hiking

Mission Peak is a public park east of Fremont, California. People us this for Hiking and biking. It is relatively tough train for biking, but still you see people doing that.

I have done hiking on this trail in July 2015. Sun was very hot and we have forgot to carry the sunscreen. Whenever you are going for outdoor for trekking or hiking – i suggest sun cream is must to carry item.

It is around (10 km) round-trip ascent on a popular trail takes two to five hours for walkers, one to one-and-a-half hours for bicyclists and runners. Difficulty with the midday sun, such as dehydration, is common. So remember to keep hydrating yourself to avoid dehydration and cramps. Guidelines recommend carrying two liters of water per person.

Finally I have reached the top and enjoyed the scenic view.

Overall this is good hike, you can enjoy this place on any season be it summer, winter or rainy.
