Walking isn’t the only “workout” that is the main form of exercise for many people, another popular one is yoga. While claimed to be an ancient practice, it is anything but
. It’s 60-90 minutes of stretching and breathing, and that’s supposed to be a workout? People claim that yoga makes you skinny. False, I see it as another activity for wealthy white women. It may be great for stretching and finding your inner chai tea, but it is no replacement for actual weightlifting.
My impression of yoga is that it is a practice which teaches you that your body is a vessel of sickness and toxins that must constantly be purged. They also tell you to put your body in very unsafe positions and that tingling, pain, nausea and blacking out means you are doing it correctly (they actually said that blacking out is normal during our yoga class).
Here at Lift Big Eat Big, we don’t believe in mediocrity, and if you are a reader then you shouldn’t either. Strive to reach your potential in everything you do, especially in your workouts. You will be sitting or laying down for more than 18 hours a day, why not give your training 100% for one hour a day? And when you hear others say “at least they’re moving” in regards to a mediocre workout, don’t stand for it. Instead, encourage these people to do more. The least work produces the least results and when it comes to your body and your health, you shouldn’t strive for mediocrity.
That is all. Go forth, Lift Big and spread the good word.
