Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Warm up vs cool down: Active warm up is ideal prior to intense workouts. Depending upon how aggressive your yoga routine is, it might serve as warm up. With that said, cooling down is also a good idea after intense exercise too. Bottom line, there's no proof that any specific exercise routine is better than another for warm up or cool down, aside from general statements. ...Read more

Correlation between exercise mountain bike amd gimn vs general health benefits is scientifily supported?Benefits of movement?Work eight hours sitted..

Yes: There is a plethora of literature that supports that movement and exercise promote better health. There are many people that have sedentary jobs. That can be combated by getting up several times an hour to move around and with what you do in your time off. Mountain biking is excellent exercise so keep doing that. Good luck. ...Read more

Good exercise for kayak sprinter competing at national level?

Good exercise for kayak sprinter competing at national level?

Exercise: Great question. As a sprint kayak racer you need a great core program as week as upper body resistance training to include back, arms, and shoulders.

Im quiet an active adrenalin junkie person such as out door sports , scuba diving, motocross ect. Will a breast augmentation limit me with activities?

No limitations: The short answer is that breast implants should not limit your lifestyle. However, it is important that they not be too large and that you are aware of all of the ramifications in terms of implants in athletic women. I would recommend asking your plastic surgeon for specific information on this. ...Read more

Bun=21
Creatinine=1.1
Protein intake=120gms 50gms through whey and 15 gms bcca during intraworkout.do Moderately Intense exercise 5to6 days for 1 hr.

Water is key: Both numbers are essentially ok. With that much protein, you really need to make sure you stay well hydrated. With intense exercise there are muscle breakdown products that can potentially be harmful if they cause blockages in your kidneys. Proper hydration will help prevent this from occurring and keep your performance level high. ...Read more

12mins intense jogging having 5min break then 5 minutes as effective as 17 minutes in one go?  Aiming for cardiovascular wellness fitness maintained weight

Yes: It's just as effective. If you exercise 20 minutes 8 times, you get the benefit of 160 minutes of exercise. It doesn't matter if you break it up or do it all at once. You could make the case that, with rest, you can exercise more effectively so breaking it up makes sense. ...Read more

What exercise should be avoided by people with RVH? I usually do weight training, cardio, yoga, swimming & muaythai. Is it safe? Im addicted to sports

EKG or Echo?: You obviously have some cardiac issues but apparently are on medications to control rate. Is the RVH a finding from an EKG only or is it from Echo cardiogram? If diagnosis is from Echo then I would be more considered. Regardless, talk to your cardiologist (or consult with one) about this. You should determine WHY you have RVH, and how severe, before deciding limitations. ...Read more
