Today's Greatist Tip: Boost Weight Training with Yoga

Apr 26th 2014 at 2:24 AM

Brawny weight-lifting types may scoff at this zen workout, but yogis swear by it— and they’re not the only ones. Experts recommend yoga to improve flexibility, which may also reduce risk of injury during other types of exercise and alleviate soreness. Plus, yoga can help relieve stress and anxiety.

But that’s not all. Yoga poses can also serve as strength-training (ever notice how plank and chair poses feel a whole lot like push-ups and squats?). And while yoga can also improve all-around fitness, it can’t compete with more aerobically demanding workouts like high-intensity aerobic training. The reality is, no one workout has everything, so a varied regimen is typically the best way to go.

Balancing Act

Finding balance in your daily life is just as important as balance in your workout regimen. J.C. Deen dropped in with a blog post enlightening us on how busy entrepreneurs make eating right and working out priorities. for more info visit this site (

Today's Greatist Tip: Boost Weight Training with Yoga

Apr 26th 2014 at 2:36 AM

Greatist Op-Eds analyze what’s making headlines in fitness, health, and happiness. The thoughts expressed here are the author’s and don’t necessarily reflect Greatist’s outlook.

In a recent opinion piece in The New York Times, journalist Oliver Burkeman argues against the increasing trend of inserting “fun” into the workplace. Oftentimes, he says, these attempts leave employees emotionally exhausted, forcing them to smile when they don’t feel happy. He also points out that having fun can sometimes detract from productivity.

At Greatist — a place where we hold semi-mandatory viewings of Elf and sing Disney songs at any decibel level — fun is a core part of our company culture. Personally, I can’t imagine working in a place where employees weren’t psyched for team cooking on company retreats and collaborative sweating at modern yoga classes. for more details ...........(

But instead of trying to prove Burkeman categorically wrong about the value of workplace fun, I started thinking about when a culture of fun might work, and when it might fail miserably. Younger employees tend to appreciate company fun when it means socializing, while older workers may prefer to separate their personal and professional lives. In an ideal situation, employers would let workers choose the kind of fun they enjoy and that helps them do their jobs better.
