Fitness Regime: April 21, 2014

Ok, so my sister thinks that I should own a weighing machine because it acts like a motivator to see our progress everyday. But I beg to differ. 

On the contrary, the scales may act as a hindrance cos we may start to obsess on how much we are losing everyday rather than focusing on the regime more. We need to work out everyday without fail and eat right and weigh in every weekend. That way the focus is consistent with your goal. And I had also learnt that the scales don’t really reflect the correct progress when checked on a daily basis. Some days you may lose more and some less depending on your workout that day and your food in-take. So I still prefer weekly checks.

I realized a few months ago that I had Coccyx pain (tailbone pain). I drive a bike to and from work and over the weekends too. Maybe during the drive I am guessing this could be the reason behind the tailbone imbalance. After googling for a bit I found that three asanas help to alleviate the pain to a large extent.

The Yoga Asanas (postures) to reduce Coccyx pain:

  1. Salabhasana – Locust Pose

  2. Artha Salabhasana – Semi Locust Pose

  3. Bhujangasana – Cobra Pose

Incidentally these three asanas also help in burning belly fat. So that’s double the advantage for me!
