Q: What are the benefits of Yoga?
A: Does your body reject the strict gym equipment routines and can't cope up with the crazy adrenaline rush? Fear not! Yoga is exactly the opposite. It's more like art than a restricted workout routine where you just let your body go with the flow of movements. Get a yoga mat and find your calm spot to stretch your muscles and tone your body the easier way. Combine your yoga sessions with meditation to have a better impact on your body and mental health.
Q: What are the common mistakes runners make?
A: Increasing your speed and distance at the same point, wearing heavy gear, improper posture, not taking days off from the routine encourages injuries, swinging hands too much and landing on their heels.
Q: Should I drink water before a morning workout?
A: Staying hydrated is essential for your health, particularly when you're working out and possibly losing a lot of water through sweat. General guidelines are to drink 17 to 20 ounces of water 2 to 3 hours before exercising, another 8 ounces during your warm-up (or 20 to 30 minutes before exercising), 7 to 10 ounces every 10 to 20 minutes during exercise, and 8 ounces of water within 30 minutes after exercising. Yes, that's a lot of water!
