Home Health & Wellness Balanced Living Exercise & Fitness Q & A I’m interested in learning yoga for its fitness benefits and also to help reduce stress. I’m overweight, however, and wonder whether yoga is a good idea for me, since it appears that most people who practice it are slim. What are your thoughts on this? – January 17, 2017 I can understand your hesitation, but I encourage you to overcome any concern about being heavy and follow through on your interest in yoga. If you’ve seen videos or photos of yoga classes, those participating often do appear to be very slim, flexible and fit. It is not always the case, if you actually attend a class, you likely will find that all the bodies in it aren’t picture perfect, and not everyone is young and fit. According to a 2016 study conducted by Yoga Journal and the Yoga Read More

Everyone works out for different reasons. The benefits of fitting in a good amount of walking, at-home workouts, and general fitness motivation are crazy good (think mood boosts and healthier choices throughout the day). Yet, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t also work out in hopes of improving our strength, stamina, and yes, our looks. In-shape, defined, swole (forgive us)—everyone’s body goal is different (That’s why Aaptiv has workouts for all fitness levels and goals). While some go for weightlifting and a variety of machines to achieve their ‘gains’, others lean towards classes like yoga, pilates, and barre. The former is usually cited by those who want to build muscle, while the latter done in the hopes of “toning.” But, what the hell is the difference?! To Tone or Not to Tone It’s clear that certain styles of fitness have championed the term “tone” to mean lengthening, leaning Read More

Muscle toning is a colloquialism that usually refers to increasing muscle definition, rather than a muscle’s resistance to stretching. The terms “muscle tone” and “muscle strength” are not interchangeable. These two terms refer to very distinct qualities about muscle function. Muscle tone refers to the resistance and tension of a muscle at rest, while muscle strength refers to the power behind a muscle contraction. Exercise that builds muscle and strength also increases muscle tone, which is a measure of one function of a healthy muscle. You don’t have to do separate exercises or stretches to increase your muscle tone. Muscle Tone Muscle tone is a measure of your muscle’s resistance to stretch when the muscle is not undergoing a conscious contraction. Simply put, your muscle tone refers to what your muscles do when you aren’t using them. A well-toned muscle maintains proper posture and alignment when you’re at rest. This Read More

Some people not interested in developing large muscles or bulking up, but are looking to tone their muscles and appear fit. Gaining muscle tone takes an overall fitness program; one that consists of consistent cardiovascular and weight-training exercise. While strength training is what directly causes muscles to develop and become toned, it’s necessary that you have a healthy body fat percentage to receive the full benefits. If you have too high of a body-fat percentage, your newly toned muscles won’t show to their best advantage.Engage in strength training at least twice a week. Complete a battery of exercises that work the entire body, consisting of the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, back, chest, shoulders, biceps, triceps and core. Each exercise should be completed for two sets of 10 to 12 repetitions, though increasing your volume to three sets once you establish a strength base with yield better results. Choose weights that Read More

If you’re experiencing discomfort in the lower back or find yourself having more trouble bending over or standing up than you used to, it may not be your back at all. It could be, as Chubbs Peterson says in “Happy Gilmore,” “all in the hips.”   Just 7.1 percent of Americans experience hip pain, according to a 2009 study, considerably fewer than feel back or knee pain. But the number of people experiencing discomfort because of their hips may be much higher.   “When it comes to evaluating new clients, I would guess that around 60 percent of the adults we work with have less than optimal hip mobility,” says Mike Perry, a functional movement screen specialist and owner of Skill of Strength, a performance-based training facility in Massachusetts.   That lack of mobility may not result in direct hip pain but could spill over into other parts of the Read More

You’ve sworn off chocolate, are finally on a first-name basis with vegetables and your high-school math teacher would be impressed with your advanced calorie-counting skills. The gym has become your second home and you just might be spending more time with your step counter than your spouse. You’re following your diet and exercise plan to the letter, and then some—but the scale hasn’t budged and your goal-size pants remain stubbornly snug. What gives?   When not even your hardest work and willpower are making a dent in your goals, it could be time to bend—or even break—some of the rules.

We asked some of our nutrition and fitness experts to share which rules they wish their clients would stop following.   1. Don’t skip breakfast.   Experts Read More
