Exercising - 7 Things You Must Never Do Before It!

Exercising - 7 Things You Must Never Do Before It!

Whether we are a fitness freak or a low key exerciser, we all want to get the best out of our workout routine. You have the enthusiasm, time, workout gear and are all set to hit the gym. But before you do, here are the top things you must avoid before your workout.

  1. Eat too much - Don’t eat right before your workout time as this will not give your body enough time to digest the food. Eat healthy and well ahead of your workout schedule in order to prevent acid reflux or heartburns during your workout. Also, don’t exercise with an empty stomach as your body needs its energy to engage in any kind of activity.
  2. Drink too much - You may think that it is a good idea to have a couple of glasses of water before you start your workout. However, in reality, it would do you more harm than help. Drinking water excessively can decrease the salt content in your blood and cause dizziness or nausea. Drink water consistently throughout the day, so that you are not left drinking too much right before your exercise.
  3. Do static stretching - Isn’t stretching good before the workout? Well, recent studies have found that stretching is not all that helpful before the start of the workout. It can increase your chances of getting hurt and leave you worse-off. But, don’t forget to warm up before. You can do a simple warm-up like light jogging or some jumping jacks to get you into the groove.
  4. Sleep too much - Again, like drinking or eating, sleeping can also impact your exercise. A power nap can leave you energized and fresh before the workout, but sleeping too much can make you feel lethargic and sluggish. Postpone your sleep routine for after-exercise hours.
  5. Painkillers - You might feel tempted to take a dose of over-the-counter painkillers for any sort of discomfort or pain that you might be facing. But popping these pills right before the workout is an absolute killer. You will feel sore and put your health at risk if you do so.
  6. Drink alcohol - Alcohol can lower your blood sugar level and cause dehydration. The combination of booze and exercise is not healthy and could lead to several hazards during your workout. So, stay away from alcohol; even a glass of wine can cause harm.
  7. Overdress or underdress - Proper apparel is essential for a workout. Wear what you are comfortable with and choose the right fabrics. Don’t add too many layers and let your skin breathe.

These essential to-dos for preparing your body before a workout are a must. Exercising is healthy but preparing for it can be complicated.

Back Exercises For Disc And Lumabar Canal Stenosis Problems!

Doing exercises to strengthen the lower back can help alleviate and prevent lower back pain. It can also strengthen the core, leg, and arm muscles.

According to researchers, exercise also increases blood flow to the lower back area, which may reduce stiffness and speed up the healing process.

Below, we explain how to do exercises to strengthen your back -

1. Bridges -

Bridges work a person's gluteus maximus, which is the large muscle of the buttocks. People engage this muscle when they move their hips, particularly when they bend into a squat. The gluteus maximus is one of the most important muscles in the body, and keeping it strong can help support the lower back.

To perform a bridge:

  • Lie on the ground and bend the knees, placing the feet flat on the floor hip-width apart.
  • Press the feet into the floor, keeping the arms by the sides.
  • Raise the buttocks off the ground until the body forms a straight line from the shoulders to the knees.
  • Squeeze the buttocks with the shoulders remaining on the floor.
  • Lower the buttocks to the ground and rest for a few seconds.
  • Repeat 15 times and then rest for 1 minute.
  • Do 3 sets of 15 repetitions.

2. Knee-to-chest stretches -

Doing a knee-to-chest stretch can help elongate the lower back, relieving tension and pain.

To perform the knee-to-chest stretch:

  • Lie on the back on the floor.
  • Bend the knees, keeping both feet flat on the floor.
  • Use both hands to pull one knee in toward the chest.
  • Hold the knee against the chest for 5 seconds, keeping the abdominals tight and pressing the spine into the floor.
  • Return to the starting position.
  • Repeat with the opposite leg.
  • Repeat with each leg 2–3 times twice a day.

3. Lower back rotational stretches -

The lower back rotational stretch can help relieve tension in the lower back and trunk. It also gently works the core muscles to improve stability.

To perform the lower back rotational stretch:

  • Lie back on the floor with bent knees and feet flat on the ground.
  • Keeping the shoulders firmly on the floor, gently roll both bent knees over to one side.
  • Hold the position for 5–10 seconds.
  • Return to the starting position.
  • Gently roll the bent knees over to the opposite side, hold, and then return to the starting position.
  • Repeat 2–3 times on each side twice a day.

4. Pelvic Tilts -

The pelvic tilt exercise can release tight back muscles and keep them flexible.

To perform this lower back flexibility exercise:

  • Lie back on the floor with knees bent and feet flat, keeping the arms by the sides.
  • Gently arch the lower back and push the stomach out.
  • Hold for 5 seconds, then relax.
  • Flatten the back and pull the bellybutton in toward the floor.
  • Hold for 5 seconds, then relax.
  • Increase the number of repetitions daily, building up to 30.

5. Lying lateral leg lifts -

Lying lateral leg lifts work the hip abductor muscles. These muscles support the pelvis and can help reduce strain on the back. Keeping these muscles strong is essential, as they help a person maintain their balance and can affect mobility.

To perform lying lateral leg lifts:

  • Lie on one side with the legs together.
  • Keep the lower leg slightly bent.
  • Draw the bellybutton into the spine to engage the core muscles.
  • Raise the top leg about 18 inches, keeping it straight and extended.
  • Hold the position for 2 seconds.
  • Repeat 10 times.
  • Turn onto the other side of the body and repeat, lifting the other leg.
  • Perform 3 sets on each side

Warm Up Exercises To Avoid Any Injuries!

Warm Up Exercises To Avoid Any Injuries!

The point of doing a work out is to put your body through the motions and phases before you hit an intense spot of persistent action before cooling down. This helps in giving your body a well-balanced work out. But what many of us do not know is that a good workout schedule will also involve well-paced warm up sessions with exercises that will warm up the body and its various areas as well as the muscles so that the intensity does not hit the body suddenly and result in some sort of injury or undue fatigue.

So get it right with these eight warm up exercises that you aren't doing, but totally should!

  1. Dynamic: Follow a dynamic routine and mix it up a little with various kinds of movements that will work the different areas of the body. Start with squats and move on to lunges before you do a few skips to warm up!
  2. Jump: Try the jumping rope the next time you hit the gym and watch your heart rate go up just enough to get you all warm and loose, ready for that heavy duty work out. You can start with five minutes of this motion before moving on to your first set.
  3. Dance: Did you know that switching on your favourite music and shuffling your feet before you start to gyrate a little can actually get you in the right frame of mind for a work out? So next time, warm up with a little dancing!
  4. Balance: Warm up with a balancing act or two. Stand on one leg and do deadlifts with a dumb bell. Repeat the same motion for both arms. This helps in imitating the actual work out that you will be indulging in, which helps in warming up the relevant areas.
  5. Stretches: Try doing stretches and jumping jacks for stability and to work your core strength before you hit the gym equipment. This will bring about better blood circulation and help you get your heart ready for the work out.
  6. Swing: Use swinging movements with your arms and legs with circles and marches to help loosen up the muscles.
  7. Walk: Do the animal walk with crab walks, frog jumps, bunny hops, inch worm motions and much more to unleash your energy.
  8. Medicine Balls: Grab some medicine balls and do a few moves like the rotational twist, the front body push, the reverse eight and many more to get your body pumped up.

Warming up is an important part of working out, so remember to get your warm up routine right!

चेहरे के लिए एक्सरसाइज-

  • सिर को पीछे की तरफ झुकाकर दांतों को भींच लें और मुंह के कोनों को पीछे की ओर खींचकर 10 मिनट तक इसी स्थिति में रहें. इस क्रिया को 8-10 बार दोहरायें. इससे चेहरे पर पड़ने वाली झुर्रियां दूर होती हैं.
  • सिर को सीधा रखते हुए ठोढ़ी को बाहर निकालें, फिर ठोढ़ी को अंदर ले जाइए. इस क्रिया को 20 बार करें. यह व्‍यायाम ठोढ़ी के नीचे की अनावश्यक फैट को कम करता है.
  • चेहरे को खूबसूरत बनाने के लिए योग और व्‍यायाम के साथ-साथ पौष्टिक आहार और आराम भी जरूरी है. इसलिए खाने में ताजे फल, हरी सब्जियों, सूखे मेवे आदि को शामिल कीजिए.
  • मुंह को जितना हो सके खोल लीजिए, जीभ को बाहर निकालकर कुछ सेकेंड तक इसी स्थिति में रहिए. इस व्‍ययाम को 10 बार कीजिए. इससे जबड़े मजबूत होते हैं और यह गले की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत बनाता है.
  • मुंह को जितना चौड़ा हो सके उतना खोलिये, 10 सेकेंड तक इसी स्थिति में रहिए और कम से कम 10 बार इस क्रिया को दोहराइए. इस व्‍यायाम से चेहरे की रेखायें हटती हैं.
  • अपनी नाक और मुंह को सिकोड़कर लगभग 5 मिनट तक रखें. इस व्‍यायाम को 10 बार कीजिए. इससे चेहरे की झाइयां हटती हैं.

चेहरे के लिए योग-

  • सुखासन में बैठकर दोनों हाथों की अंगुलियों से अपने गालों को लगातार थपथपाएं. इस क्रिया को उसी प्रकार कीजिए, जिस प्रकार हम दुलार से किसी को तमाचा मार रहे हैं. यह क्रिया रोज 5 मिनट करें.
  • अपनी गर्दन को पीछे की तरफ मोड़कर फिर अपने नीचे वाले होंठ से ऊपर वाले होंठ को छूने का प्रयास करें, कुछ देर इसी अवस्था में रुककर सामान्‍य स्थिति में आयें. यह इस क्रिया का एक चक्र हुआ. कम से कम 10 बार इसका अभ्यास करें.
  • कपोल शक्ति विकासक क्रिया चेहरे प‍र निखार लाने के लिए अच्‍छा योगासन है. इसके लिए सुखासन या फिर पद्मासन में बैठ जाएं. दोनों हाथों की आठों अंगुलियों के आगे के भाग को आपस में मिलाकर दोनों अंगूठे से दोनों नाकों के छिद्रों को बंद कर लें. फिर सांस अंदर खींचे. फिर दोनों अंगूठों से नाक के छिद्रों को बन्द कर लें और अपने गालों को गुब्बारे की तरह फुलाएं और अपनी क्षमता अनुसार सांस रोककर धीरे-धीरे सांसों को बाहर निकालें. यह अभ्यास कम से कम 20 बार करें.
  • वज्रासन में बैठकर घुटनों को थोड़ा खोलकर रखें. हाथों की अंगुलियों को शेर के पंजे के समान खोलकर दोनों घुटनों पर रखें. सांस खींचकर जीभ बाहर निकालें और फिर सांस छोड़ते हुए शेर जैसी गजर्ना करें. इस क्रिया में मुंह ज्यादा से ज्यादा खुला होना चाहिये. जीभ अधिक से अधिक बाहर निकली होनी चाहिये. गले की मांसपेशियों में तनाव लाएं. इस आसन का अभ्यास 3-4 बार कर सकते हैं.
  • जब समय मिले, खूब जोर से हंसिये, इसे हास्‍यासन कहते हैं. इतना हंसिये कि आंखों में आंसू आ जाए, क्योंकि हंसने के दौरान जिस्म की सभी 600 मांसपेशियों की कसरत एक साथ होती है. ठहाका लगाकर हंसने से फेफड़ों में ज्यादा ऑक्सीजन जाती है, रक्त शुद्ध होता है और चेहरा गुलाब की तरह खिल जाता है.
  • पद्मासन में बैठकर, अपने मुंह को इस प्रकार चलाएं, जैसे कि गाय या भैंस चारा खाने के बाद जुगाली करती है. इस क्रिया को कम से कम 2 मिनट करें.
  • उदान मुद्रा करने के लिए पद्मासन में बैठ जायें. फिर अपने दोनों हाथों की तीनों अंगुलियों (तजर्नी अंगुली को छोड़कर) बाकी अंगुलियों को अंगूठे के टिप से आपस में मिलाइये. इसका अभ्यास 5 मिनट रोज करें.
  • हाथों में दस्ताने पहनकर, दोनों अंगूठों को पूरी तरह मुंह के अंदर इस तरह डालें कि ऊपर के जबड़ों और ऊपरी होंठों से लगें. होंठों को फैलाएं, जिससे मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव महसूस हो, अब होंठों को बन्द करके दबाव दें. इस क्रिया का अभ्यास 5-6 बार करें.

Weight  - Know Tips To Reduce It!

Very few people are lucky enough to reap the benefits of a good metabolic system. Being overweight could be a serious problem as it complicates existing health problems and can even result in unusual diseases and disorders. Cribbing about increased body weight, low energy levels and a protruding paunch is too common a phenomenon to be ignored.

People try out bizarre ways to deal with an excess of adipose tissues. They run, jog, cycle and do dieting. The numerous efforts made in losing weight go down the drain in most cases. The reason behind this is simple; you are not doing things the right way.

Exercising in combination with a balanced diet is necessary to keep yourself fit and healthy. However, weight loss is not a silly affair without a rule book. One must keep to a set of norms to reduce weight effectively.

Valuable tips to lose those extra kilos:-

You may lose weight in whichever way you want but doubt remains regarding the consistency of such reduction. Weight loss could be drastic but things might revert to square one as soon as you slacken from a rigorous regimen. Try out tips that suit your subjective case and find yourself in good shape.

1. Breakfast is the most important meal of a day- Being on an empty stomach for long stretches can result in bloating. In such a situation a person feels lethargic and tends to give up after least physical exertion. If you intend to retain your appetite for dinner by skipping breakfast, you are slowly moving towards obesity. Have a heavy breakfast every single day.

2. Stop being a couch potato- Sitting in front of the television set or computer screen for long hours can make you gain weight. Remind yourself to indulge in these activities in restriction.

3. Have a high- fiber diet- A high- fiber diet is good for digestive processes. It rids your body of excess gases and acids making you feel light. Such kind of food can be easily broken down to produce energy.

4. Exercise regularly or at least thrice a week- Exercising is extremely important to keep the extra kilos in check. It also adds strength to your muscles. Exercising can improve a person's mental agility as well.

5. Have four meals a day- Having small but frequent meals throughout the day is the best possible way to maintain optimal body weight. Through this practice, the body is assured of regular food supply and hence won't store fat.

These tips will help you lose weight easily. All you need is to get rid of laziness, follow a proper diet plan and do regular exercise to lose weight. Thus, you will get good results in a short span of time.
