Exercise Does Not Have to be Painful - Article # 2

Thursday, October 25, 2012

This is a review of article number two for my challenge this week. I have always heard the saying "No Pain No Gain".... maybe that old staying might not be true.
The article explains that we should think about your moves when we are exercising. The idea is do the moves slower, more efficiently and with confidence. However, they are only really talking about doing Yoga, Pilates & Tai Chi. The article claims these types of exercises will help build endurance, flexibility, and reduce stress. It also states that doing Yoga, Pilates & Tai Chi may help improve your strength. But, they are not the best exercises for burning fat and losing weight. They are great exercises to add balance to your cardio workouts.

    strength training can be done tthe same way - slow, with mindfullness, proper breathing, correct form and full range of motion. i enjoy and really feel my strength training when the moves are done slowly with full control.

    Thanks for sharing. I work out a lot at the gym with osteoarthritis so I am always modifying things to suit my body. You have to listen to what your body tells you while still trying to push yourself. A delicate balance for sure. Glad you are enjoying your challenge! emoticon
