YOGA AND FITNESS
So, you are like a tightly stretched string: you exercise with weights fanatically; overtraining. However, it is impossible to stop, because the prospect of a transition to the 44th size is closer than ever. How to be here? Do yoga!
At first glance, such a proposal looks like a mockery – why add a new item to the sports fitness schedule, which is already cracking with tension? Meanwhile, yoga is necessary as air! The fact is that strength and aerobic training is, after all, a kind of stress. Resisting stress, the body acquires new positive qualities – increases strength and endurance, gets rid of ballast – adipose tissue, and increases muscle mass. However, with the growth of the fitness period, the stress resistance of the training decreases. Respectively falls and recoil exercises. Everything can result in severe chronic fatigue – overtraining.
So, the best way to maintain high stress resistance of the body is active rest. If you rest passively, without accelerating the blood flow, you will not see the effect of washing out the waste from the body. Well, slagging with toxins is the main reason for reducing the vital forces of the body. Previously, experts recommended to fans at least two days a week to take long walks or Pilates.
However, today the opinion of science has changed. It turns out that for a fitness woman, nothing is better than yoga! Asanas have a magical property to quickly restore strength and at the same time save calories, each of which is already on a special account. (Yoga is half as energy-consuming as walking or pilates, and tripled than jogging). There are two options: either reserve a separate day for yoga, or practice it after a normal strength or aerobic workout.
Rest for the body, exercise for the mind
Yoga is good because you can feel the effect of it immediately after the first session. Usually, experts begin with slow movements, then gradually increase the intensity, and yoga session ends with exercises that help to relax. As a result, you feel a sense of blissful peace and tranquility. And this is not a game of sensations. Yoga powerfully stimulates blood circulation and thus helps to get rid of harmful by-products of metabolism. As a result, the forces are restored in shock order, and the state of health improves.
Experts pay attention to the fact that yoga is not only relaxation for the body, but also exercise for the mind. The connection of physiological processes with mental processes is well known, but nowhere is it manifested so clearly as with yoga. Because Asanas affect those aspects of the brain, which in ordinary life we have no idea. For example, yoga develops a special inner “hearing” when you, as it were, hear the body, adjusting with it to one wave …
Pros of yoga
Yoga helps to reveal our “weak” places. For example, poor flexibility of individual joints or loss of muscle coordination.
Yoga “brings up” the breath. Breathing is one of the most important wisdom of yoga. Its effect on the body is such that after exercise you will feel at the same time both relaxed and charged with energy.
Habitual aerobic exercises do not give such an effect. Yoga teaches to work without adrenaline, and this is much more useful.
Yoga is not similar to either power or aerobic exercise. The novelty of yoga for the benefit of your body and your spirit.
