"I know what you are saying. My solution was to get some Yoga DVD's (I looked for the ones that were less "spiritual") and started doing them for 30 minutes each morning. It has helped me get more flexable with out having to hear…"
"I've been doing some combined yoga and mat pilates. I prefer pilates. I've stopped going to classes and do more at home alone. Part of it was going to classes made my entire day about running to the next appointment. But part of it was…"
""Done correctly, yoga is HARD."

"You'd do better with a subscription to the Crossfit Journal online. It's like $30 a year and they post tons of videos and you have access to the entire archive. I used to subscribe to Muscle & Fiction but got tired of all the ads."
"If you want a magazine just to read with a variety of things I find Men's Journal better than Men's Health. But as said by others, books are better if you want to get in depth and actually learn something too. Videos are the best because…"
"Men's Health is rubbish. I don't know why people read those mags.
Suggestion: figure out what you want. Do you want to do "fitness," become strong or have a good body? All those things require different…"
"Good counter-point. I think I need to state better what I was trying to get at. I'm not against magazines, but in the end, they are a delivery system for their sponsor's goods. You can spice up a program with them for sure, but I think one…"
"I normally buy Men's Health when I am in the airport so I can pass the time. There are some interesting things in it, but it seems like it was written for dudes with adhd. There's very little depth in there.
Personally, I think you would…"
"You're probably not going to get much out of any particular general "health and fitness" magazine.
The methodology of basic fitness have been extensively covered for decades, it's your specific goals of how fit…"
"It depends on the degree of what you call fitness and health and what your looking for.....i dont like magazines geared to the average guy who workouts here and there....i like magazines who are geared towards bodybuilding aspect......you may…"
Yoga for women or men is one of the best exercise options available. Women are truly the stronger sex, men drop like flies. At least in this yoga. I've taken the hot yoga (Bikram), It has strengthened my body, gave me much better…"
"The guy who started the post asked if anyone did Yoga. I've been practicing it in some form or another for over forty years, I gave him a starting reference with a classic text. I tried to give general information without whitewashing it. If…"
"It does, but reality happens every second of every day. Why assume that perfection is not possible? You have that idea in your mind but you do not question it. You have only one life to live, why can't it be in paradise? If not now, then make…"
Hi all,Have been thinking of relationships recently and as I didn't grow up with happily married parents I didn't have a good role model to understand what they are about.But a theory I have is that a relationship is not so much about the person you are together with, it's more about having a commitment to the relationship itself.

"I see some readers would like a shorter version. Okay, to summarize, basically if you could create your own paradise, what would it be like? And, do you genuinely think you know yourself well enough to know what that paradise really would…"
"Your argument collapses if I never die though right? And since, I have never before been dead, why should I assume that I will? Just because other people have? I am my own individual, all that is, exist because I have perceived it to…"
"Thank you sir. I do strive to be original. Frankly, many of the posts I have read seem rather mundane and petty, some of them. I think it is important to question one's sense of reality, as it can lead to greater insight into what this all…"
