Namaste!
« on: January 25, 2015, 01:07:15 pm »
Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum. I hope to find fellow yoga enthusiasts and engage in conversations with them. I love to know yoga tips and of course, I want to be of help to others as much as I can. :)

Yoga can be great. Be careful you don't overdo specific postures, because you can permanently lengthen a ligament by too much stretching.

What harm does that exactly do? I'm just curious as I used to do yoga and plan to do so again, soon.

There's a structure in each set of asanas. A well-composed set will be balanced in terms of directions of bends and twists (front, back, side/side, twist right/twist left) and building intensity (from a warm-up to a grand finale). Problem is, when some people learn a few asanas and then practice without a balanced program, they often do a few "favorite" asanas, or skip the warm-up and go right to the extreme postures, they will get an unbalanced result.

Same thing happens when body builders work on their pecs, abs, and biceps because they can see those regions in the mirror. They never build their core, legs and backs.

Hi! I'm also new here. Have been doing yoga on and off for close to a decade! Love it. Trying to adopt a daily practice again:) It makes a world of difference.

Not just that but bodybuilders never incorporate exercises that use multiple muscles together. They isolate muscles. Our bodies are not built the way they train them, nor what they train them for. Our bodies are built to have muscles working together.
Our muscles/bodies should be trained the way they are built to work. Which means mobility, agility, strength, endurance, flexibility, plus whatever else - all of them, which also would mean having a very good physical appearance, something like an athletic body.

For the last week I've been writing down different exercises (including different variations of same exercises) that can be done in the gym, primarily with weights. Currently have about 700 exercises (about a hundred of those are for abs/core...). People in general maybe use only 50 of them (among which some few are very bad exercises that should never be done at all; and only about 5 for abs, I don't think they are even aware there's such a thing as "core", or just 1-2 exercises for core), and even those they mostly do wrong.
