What is Better Yoga or Weightlifting?

What is Better Yoga or Weight Lifting?

The big question is, “What type of body image are you after?”

Yoga and weightlifting work on different muscle fibres so the image is the question.  Most Yogis are slender or have wiry, not muscle-bound, builds.

However there are the exceptions to the rule…

Rodney Yee is one of them, he has been practicing for more than 30 years and he looks great.







Adam Levine, lead vocalist Maroon 5, states, “Yoga is by far the most convenient way to exercise while I’m on the road, you don’t need anything but a few feet of space and a mat.”

After Adam broke his sternum (chest bone) whilst weight lifting he began to use spotters and gave weights up completely for yoga in 2007.
After Adam’s first class he said he “instantly felt sculpted,” but that during the session it “felt like someone was ripping my body apart.”

Adam had lifted weights for years and found yoga to be the most convenient and much more physically satisfying than weight lifting.  The rocker assures that “the torture subsided over time,” and that it has proved to be most definitely more “satisfying physically” than lifting weights, which he’d been doing for years.



Another one is yogi, Cameron Alborzian once famous super model now living a content happy life as a yogi with a body to match.
Practicing yoga several times weekly, you can hang onto a lot of muscle.
When it comes to yoga and weight lifting they actually complement one another.  So whilst with yoga you can hold onto a certain amount of muscle mass, what you really need is a balance of the two.
Crow and Chaturanga Dandasana are great upper body positions you need more to build that upper body.  These positions are more likely to build the smaller, “slow-twitch” muscle fibers first (these are the fibers that runners and other endurance athletes have).
Those bulky muscles you want to keep are made up of “fast twitch” fibers and are best built through weight training.
With such a busy lifestyle there is only so much time so if you are going to do both yoga and weightlifting then ensure the time spent in your sessions is of high quality.

Of course, depending on your goals yoga on its own may well be all you need or want, just remember yoga is a great way to complement your weightlifting.
So remember for that great looking body, weightlifting is okay, however brilliant yoga can get you where you want inside and out. Click Here!

Back to Basics With Metabolic Cooking

Back to Basics with Metabolic Cooking.

So what is Metabolic Cooking????

Metabolic cooking is back to basic cooking of healthy foods that will increase your metabolism.

These foods are designed to help you maintain a high metabolism and burn more calories naturally.

For years we have been eating all this quick, easy supposedly health food.

We know what we are eating is not good for us and we just keep on eating it whether it is convenience, laziness or just not sure what is and not good for us.

There are two things we know that are not good for us that is fats and sugar.

So is it as black and white as that.

Of course not.

Yes sugar is no good for us that is true and this diagram can show you why….

Fat Burning Zone is our Aim When our body’s sugar level is balanced it should be anywhere between 4.0 and 5.5 mmol/L.

There are many foods that are still classed as healthy and are full of sugar that will increase our blood sugar level.

These foods need to be avoided – cereals, orange juice, whole wheat bread,  and all those dressings stating low fat are bad sugar in disguise.
We have a sugary snack or something we believe to be healthy; our sugar level jumps up and it stays above 5.5 consistently then our body looks after us and releases insulin.

With this release of insulin our body stores fat and our blood sugar levels drop and then we feel hungry again and of course crave sugar so you can see how the cycle begins and meanwhile our body is constantly storing fat.

The question we ask is… Is our body looking after us?

Answer…. yes it is.

So the real question…. Are we looking after our body?

We all know this answer.   If we continue to do this to our body we could develop a condition called diabetes.

So what has this to do with back to basic metabolic cooking, well there are foods which will satisfy our hunger

and will keep our blood sugars maintained, we will always have an increase in sugar and insulin will be released to combat this, it will be just done at normal healthy ratios.

I have been trying for quite some time to get my head around from what we should and should not eat.

We live in a world where body image is so important and so everyone goes on those crazy diets, I was one of them.

I realise now it does not matter what you look like on the outside if your internal workings are letting you down.
Our body’s are wonderful the way they look after us, however like any machine if you do not maintain and service it, it will let you down.

The best and most valuable information I can share with you is metabolic cooking, honestly going back to basics, before processing came along.
Good foods that you can have are sprouted grain breads, rice, spelt, millet, quinoa, sweet potatoes, all fruit and vegetables, steak, chicken, fish and eggs. Image the meals you can make with these choices.  Yum.
Yes fruit has sugar, however the chains in those sugars are easily metabolised in our bodies so don’t be afraid to enjoy our wonderful fruit.
So now I have mentioned steak and eggs – any man’s dream, I should discuss metabolic cooking with fats.

There is always confusion with fats.

Are they good for us will fats make us fat.

Well yes, some fats certainly however there are good  fats that our body actually needs to increase metabolism and help keep our cholesterol levels down.

So start to enjoy fats like REAL butter, whole eggs, coconut oil, raw nuts, avocados and olive oil virgin pressed.

As I said before we need to avoid processed foods and the most obvious ones are the artificial sweeteners, soya milk, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils  – these are those solid oils.

Last little one is the use of spices in your cooking this is wonderful for your metabolism.

So join me on this wonderful discovery of getting back to basics with metabolic cooking.

Getting Back Into the Rhythm…

Let’s get back to the rhythm we live in a physical world of vibrations, sound waves are vibrations, light waves are a form of vibration and our brain waves are a form of vibration. So I do believe it is time to get back to the rhythm.
Online you can read testimonials of hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by getting back to the rhythm. I am talking about brain wave vibration, where you learn how to move your body to your own personal internal natural healing rhythms.
We live in such a busy, busy world where demands are constantly placed upon ourselves. We collapse into bed and our brain just does not switch off.

We are restless, we wake with a start and realise our brain is still working in day time mode.

Brain wave vibration is probably the most simple and effective way to get at least a great night’s sleep.

Brain wave vibration is easy to do and can bring your body and mind back into balance for total health, happiness and joy within yourself.

Whilst you are performing this easy to learn practice you are slowing down your brain waves and letting your own body’s natural inbuilt healing processes take over. This slowing down process helps you get back the rhythm of sleep.
Sounds a bit like mediation, well it is in a way, however much easier as you do not have to empty the mind, you can do it anywhere anytime from a few seconds to 10 minutes.

It is amazing, it works. I have attached a video (the bottom one) which has some testimonials.

With Brain Wave Vibration, you can become more focused therefore able to:

  • Manage your stress more effectively
  • Stimulate your own natural healing processes
  • Regain your physical energy
  • Keep your emotions in check
  • Awaken your creative potential
  • & get a great night sleep

Brain Wave Vibration combines ancient healing traditions with our modern scientific understanding of the brain.
Most ancient cultures recognise a universal life force, an energy that exists in all things. Even Asian healing systems theorise that it is the balanced flow of ki through certain pathways in the body (Chinese call this life-energy pathway – meridian) that determines our health and well being.

I have attached 3 videos just to get the idea of what brain wave vibration is and also there is this book if you want to read more about it.

Brain Wave Vibration: Getting Back into the Rhythm of a Happy, Healthy Life by Ilchi Lee.

So enjoy getting back to the rhythm and vibrate your way to a whole new you.

Just wanted to share this information as it is simple and does not take long.

The mind is in a relaxed state so those positive thoughts just keep flowing.

So remember….
“Your Are Your Thoughts!”
