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

Bilingualism does: not cause receptive or expressive delays. A typical child may learn one language more rapidly & may mix words from each. Age 0-5 is optimal for learning a language's phonemes, or smallest units of sound, so (s)he can learn incorrect phonemes with prolonged exposure.

Erections & Brains: Given your age this is most likely a temporary condition and it can be made worse by your thinking, worrying about your erections. Erections are a complex combination of physical stimulation and mental stimulation with the brain being more than 50% responsible. Any worry or fatigue or stress can make getting an erection or maintaining an erection more difficult. Give it time. Stop worrying! ...Read more

I heard exercise improves memory in seniors. How?

I heard exercise improves memory in seniors. How?

Blood flow: By increasing blood flow to the brain and thereby increasing oxygenation and metabolism, memeory can improve. I would also add that there may be benefit from improved mood and overall increased vitality. The other benefit is that as you increase exercise, you are more engaged and less bored, this improves memory as well. There are probably other reasons such as hormones, etc but those r basics. ...Read more

I don't know: Here in the States, Ampyra (dalfampridine) is approved only to improve ambulation in patients with multiple sclerosis. You simply can't prescribe it for any other indication.
