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

M south indian.If someone was performing well in studies at schools, colleges, 90% chance he/she will perform well in all intelligent tests to get jobs?

M south indian.If someone was performing well in studies at schools, colleges, 90% chance he/she will perform well in all intelligent tests to get jobs?

The question is too : Broad. There are multiple types of intelligence, at least seven. If you are taking a job test is related to your college studies and you have done well on your college studies and there is no reason to doubt that you should do well on your job tasks. However, if the job tests required you to perform an area of intelligence that is less strong for you, then there is no guarantee. I will give you an example. Let's say that you did very good in college but you took a job test to be a musician, and music is something that you do not do well in, then i wouldn't expect you to do well on the test.Chances are however if you would do quite well. Google types of intelligence and see the wikipedia article on it. It will explain this concept to you quite well. Best wishes in your studies and in your job search. It sounds like you really don't have anything to worry about. ...Read more

What is better for physical therapy after ACL repair - elliptical machine or stationary bike?

What is better for physical therapy after ACL repair - elliptical machine or stationary bike?

Personal preference: Both elliptical machines and stationary bikes are great adjuncts to an ACL reconstruction rehabilitation program. They both protect the recovering knee and new ACL from unsafe forces such as rotating and pivoting while also limiting impact loading. Some patients do not like one or the other pieces of equipment, so it is nice to have various options. ...Read more

Do FPS fast paced shooters video games increase your eye visiona. I heard there had been scientific proof that's this is true?

Do FPS fast paced shooters video games increase your eye visiona. I heard there had been scientific proof that's this is true?

Not your vision: Video games may improve eye hand coordination and dexterity. The actual visual acuity is based on the curvature and length of the eye, and the general health of the eye. Using the eyes visually for any task has essentially no effect on these variables. On the other hand, intensive near visual work and computer use can lead to eyestrain and dry eye symptoms. ...Read more
