Is a fitness training routine combining rowing, treadmill cycling good?

Is a fitness training routine combining rowing, treadmill cycling good?

Yes: You are nicely combining three different forms of aerobic conditioning exercises. Rowing and cycling activities are heart friendly as well as joint friendly; good exercise for the cardiovascular system without beating up your joints. Of the three, the treadmill has more impact on your knees and ankles as you run. Would advise keep in the treadmill flat as opposed to inclined. Easier on the knees. ...Read more

Should I learn yoga using dvd or instructor?

Should I learn yoga using dvd or instructor?

Instruct first: For the beginner it is helpful to start with an instructor. They are trained to spot and correct problems with your form. Once you become more aware of your body and position and can feel the right way to do the poses then supplementing or replacing with a dvd will provide continued benefit. I would still do occasional classes to keep up to date. ...Read more

Any doctors out there who have tried sleep/activity/etc. Tracking devices and services (e.G., jawbone's up, fitbit, nike+ fuelband)? Thoughts?

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

Sure: Yoga can be an incredibly wonderful activity. I practice regularly and love it. However, you can also hurt yourself in yoga if you do not have instruction or if you try to do something that you are not ready for. I generally recommend to my patients interested in yoga to go to classes and then to use tapes/dvds only when they have gained some experience and no what to do and what not to do. ...Read more

My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?

My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?

Maybe: Tv and video games are geared for a 4 second attention span. Most 2 year olds have longer attention spans than that. The 4 second attention span keeps your son alert via a neural reflex. It also lowers his attention span for the real world. Research states of those who watch 1 hour a day 9% will lower their attention span to add levels. 2 hours lowers 18% and 3 hrs 27%. Limit both to 45 min/day. ...Read more

Need help with a workout for someone who doesn't gain weight! what kind of diet should I have to complement this?

No magic bullet: If your energy output is less than your energy intake, you would gain weight. Fat and carb tend to make one gain weight than protein. Thus you can gain weight either by reducing the intensity or even more importantly the duration of the workout, or by eating more food. Question is why do you want to gain weight if you are of average range? Unless , of course, you want to become a sumo wrestler. ...Read more
