Walk with hands folded behind.. Why? Best posture for the thoracic spine is when the chest is open, shoulder blades are pulled down and are pulled towards each other.. Try this folding hand thing, your upper back will assume the right position.. #posture correction..Try try and share

Plank is a superb core workout. In a plank we engage all the core muscles i.e muscles sorounding the spine… like abs, back, traps, gluteus.. etc For a strong spine and for strong spinal muscles, plank it up! Also if you want to feel your core muscles then

Come in a plank, close your eyes and feel the muscles that get engaged. These muscles make up the core.. 1 minute into the plank position, you will feel the core muscles better.. Try it

Olive oil is famous for monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, which almonds also have. Olives are for italians, leave it for them. Almond butter anyone?:)

Late evening healthy munching.. fox nuts and muskmellon seeds.. I kind of stir roasted them in home made desi ghee
________________________

For home made ghee and butter, start using full cream milk. Boil the milk, leave it as it is for sometime, remove the malai and use that malai to make butter and ghee at home :) ) .. This way you also make skimmed milk at home. Better than milk skimmed in the machine..

#Preworkoutmeal

Include fast carbs like fruits etc in your pre workout meal. Eat something that digests quickly to provide energy. I had sweet potato chaat before my run today. Since sweet potato is a slow/fibrous carb so, I had difficulty in running.

_________________________

When we do SNs quickly then it become more of a cardio thing and when we do it slowly, holding each pose then it becomes a strengthening thing

__________________________

A common mistake that an exercise enthusiast do is jump directly to workout without proper warm up and stretching.. Likewise, finish workout without proper cool down and stretching.. This later cause pain and injury.. And a lot of demotivation to workout…

howsoever boring warm up, cool down and stretching are .. do them..#fitness is in small changes :) )

__________________________

Water is a freely and easily available, natural fat burner.. It Keeps the blood sugar and salt levels stable, cleanses the body of toxins and santises skin and organs..Stay hydrated..stay fit..!:)

___________________________

We spend thousands and lakhs of rupees on gym memberships, nutritionists, doctors etc most of the times only to end up with pain or side effects or an injury due to incorrect approaches used.. why not spend 300 bugs and some time on a good book and educate ourselves on our body, our food ..sure shot results, no injuries or side effects..May be then we won’t even need any of the experts to help us look and feel fit #foodforthought #shutupandtrain

____________________________

One big myth.. you started going to the gym so you should start taking protein shakes.. we have them without knowing what they are actually composed of.

The question is aren’t their enough natural options available which are better then these supplements?… Their is good paneer, dals, sprouts, egg, fish, mushroom, soyabean, daal chawal, seeds, peanuts…

irony is we skip these natural proteins as fattening and have supplements instead… don’t we?

______________________________

If you experience pain during any workout like back pain after crunches or knee pain after running then slow down and first work on strengthening the back muscles or the muscles surrounding the knee joint..

Fitness is not just lmited to how we look but also to how we feel.. Let us first feel fit, good looks will follow :) )

_______________________________

What are good carbs? That which are Unprocessed and are closest to its natural state..no packet flour..picked up the natural grains And got myself some whole grain flour grinded at a local chakki … #desi #healthy :) )

fmultigrain flour

_______________________________

The calf muscle is referred to as the ”second heart’ because when we are standing then the calf muscle is constantly contracting to help pump blood upwards in order to aid the heart in blood circulation..If calf muscles is week then the pressure will be felt on the joints..

Tip: Strengthen your calves for a stronger heart! Do calf raises, may be while brushing your teeth :) ) ..

________________________________

What is your first meal of the day? Best is to finish the dinner early so that we wake up with a hungry/receptive body early morning.. The best time to treat the body with something natural which is filled with goodness.. Something like a fruit, dry fruit, milk instead of tea

________________________________

Running can make us lose weight …but weight training of any form be it weight lifiting, yoga etc help us increase metabolism.. They are the kinds of workout that change body…hit it!
