Want to build lean muscle mass?

No matter what anybody or any infomercial tells you, you cannot specifically target a part of your body you want to lose weight in. So when you hear about the next greatest abs miracle device, do not fall for the trap. They are trying to sell a product and they are good at doing it. Instead, you want to build lean muscle mass.

Do not worry about this term "lean muscle mass," it is a good thing. The quickest way to burn fat is to build muscle, but most people are afraid to build muscle, because they are afraid of looking like a bodybuilder. That is why lean muscle mass is so important. Lean muscle mass will help you develop a nice toned body, even for the ladies.

So how do you build that muscle? This might come as a shocker to you, but it is actually very easy. You do not need a gym membership or an expensive piece of equipment. All you need is your body! That is right you can build lean muscle mass by just using the weight of your own body. That means you can build lean muscle by doing push-ups, chin ups, squats, and lunges. Any workout you can find that uses your own body as resistance, is a great way to that nice toned muscle.

It will help speed up your metabolism, and if you eat the right type of foods, then you can really see some great results. For that nice toned body, try to find some body resistant exercises to do in your own home.

Yoga holds that a person’s health condition depends on himself. It lays emphasis on physical, mental and emotional balance and development of a sense of harmony with all of life. There’s nothing mystical about it.Nor is it external. Rather it is an inner faculty. Yoga endeavors to re-establish inner balance through a variety of ways, ranging from the gross to the subtle. Which is why it is considered a holistic art.Rather than prescribe treatments, yoga therapy encourages awareness. Through age-old yogic techniques, we get to know ourselves better.From that knowledge, comes the ability to more easily accept and adapt to change, resulting in enhanced well-being in body, mind, heart and spirit. Hence its applicability to almost all chronic conditions.

What approach does yoga therapy take?

Contrary to modern medical science that tries to identify the pathogenic factor (be it a toxic substance, a micro-organism, or metabolic disorder) then eliminate it, Yoga takes a totally different point of view. It holds that if a person is sick there must be a deeper reason behind it – that illness doesn’t arise by chance. It is the result of an imbalance, a disruption in the body-mind complex that creates the condition. Here the symptoms, the pathogenic factors, are not the issue. Yoga believes that the root cause lies somewhere else.
