Good morning fitness lovers!

I danced the night away, celebrated my dad's birthday, in 6" heels, hours of dancing and jumping makes my knee an angry girl ;).

Re: Yoga, we both know the advantages of it, my hubby understands the importance of flexibility, yet is set in his old ways :). Despite the fact that his wife is a PT and is constantly stressing this issue, he's just set in his ways. It's okay though, he's very fit, works out daily and watches what he eats. It can be worse, right?

H, how is your back?

Mr.Fundamental, how is your shoulder?

B's shoulder is pretty bad. He increased his weights last week, by a whopping 25% in one day, and got hurt as a result.

Like sed's hubby, I'm more muscular, less flexible and less balanced. Yoga is hard. On the other hand, a wise trainer will work on just those areas of balance and flexibility while I work on strength and stamina.

It's the flexibility issue (or lack of) by many of the males of the species. Especially those who have been involved with weight lifting. Yoga will help with flexibility. Don't worry about the "fluidity" of the workout - think more of just breathing and then getting towards the positions. That's why I'm doing yoga - increased flexibility helps in my workouts and decreases injuries. Not to mention some lifestyle positions LOL! -h

Mercy,

It's not a homophobic issue, my husband is anything but that. He's more of a body builder than anything else, Yoga is just awkward for him. For the same reason that tai chi is ;). He's perfectly comfortable with his Kung Fu training, yet Tai Chi is a challenge for him, clearly for the same reason as Yoga. The fluidity of it all I guess. He's a big dude who's been working out since the age of 14, in a stereotypical man's gym...;)

Even as a Personal Trainer, I can't instill the importance of flexibility in him.

"I wish that I could get my hubby into Yoga! it's just awesome."

See if you can find a place with all men classes. Even though I am in the lifestyle and see more ass, vagina and boobs than most men, I don't want to see all that when I'm exercising. That's my growth and gain time. All men classes allieviate that, plus the yoga is geared toward men and not mixed up. He'll get a better workout in a short time.

"mercy that is great!! but for individuals to look better they need both, diet n exercise. the thing with exercise is that it takes a lot of effort. but the results are very rewarding. mentally n phisically."

Agreed, and perhaps I should have stratified. Boosting the metabolism in the short term can be done by changing diet, eating habits, chemical imbalances, etc. At the point in which the metabolic rate reaches homeostasis, then exercise can give the metabolism another boost. Working in tandem, you can keep your metabolism high for a long time. I determined that I reached stasis with food two weeks ago and now that I'm toning and shaping with Yoga and mild lifting, my RMR is back on track.

Yeah, all those nudes painted hundreds of years ago showing curvy women (which would be considered overweight if not obese today) as EROTIC ART must be mistaken.

And all those profiles who say they like curvy women, all those songs about wanting women's big asses - yeah, they must be crazy. I don't see very many that say "I'm attracted to a beer gut on a man."

Just because *your preference* is for skinny girls, it doesn't make an entire class of men and women not exist.

I agree! And I'm glad that you stated it. There are attractive and not attractive both fat and skinny as well as in between. Women don't carry it better than me, or the other way around.
