Re: Non-HIIT Cardio - not effective?

Having defined muscle involves two things. 1. Building Muscle and 2. Losing body fat. Doing both at the same time is difficult but not impossible.

Re: Weight Lifting or Cardio?

If your goal is to lose weight then you need to run a calorie deficit. There are basically three ways to go about this. 1. Diet 2. Exercise 3. A combination of the two.

Re: Dangers of yoga article

I have been doing yoga for a little over a decade and I would say the statement "but with yoga, one is encouraged over time to push that genetically mediated limit further" is flat out incorrect. I have never met a yoga instructor that would tell you to push past what your body to do or en...
