    @HGy
    Take this with a huge grain of salt because I'm not completely sure. :P
    For a good strong posture you need abdominal muscle strength. It's something I've picked up as a runner where big strong back does more bad than good if you want be good at running.

    Sounds more like you need to support you arms better at your desk. I got back strains working as an electrician because most of the day is spent working with unsupported arms/hands.

    What concerns are there for chronic low blood pressure?

  3. #793

    While prepping for this evenings 11km run I came to realize and summarize all the things I do for the purpose of being able to run like I run. I'm an idiot for even doing it imo.

    For my 1337-running exercises:
    - Shoes that's more comfortable running fast in than slow.
    - Special socks, because ordinary socks make my feet feel like they're burning up after 10km.
    - Long underwear. Because sores on the inner thighs is god damn annoying as fuck.
    - 100% synthetic clothing. I sweat a lot. Cotton clothes soak up an astounding amount of sweat.
    - Checking my toenails. If they're too long I risk cracking them. It hurts, it bleeds, it's annoying when it happens.
    - Taping the nipples with body tape. Runners nipple anyone? So hot! And synthetic cloth rubbing hurts after a while.
    - Chewing gum. It actually keeps my throat moist. Else it dries up fast, especially when temps are getting below 0 deg C.

    Fellow moronic freak. Do you use or do anything that intelligent non-freaks never would have considered?

    I have a question about pulse(heart rate) and dieting. I am trying to loose weight(started to make a serious effort not long ago and have only lost 2kg, so 16 more until normal weight), but I am a bit concerned about my pulse and bloodpressure, because both tend to drop when I try to reduce my portion sizes (and not by all that much even). I have lost weight before, but as this tend to happen I usually get really tired as a result(sometimes anxiety feels worse too, think that can be related to low bloodpressure).

    So I wonder if anyone knows how to loose weight and eat less without my body going into savings-mode like that?

    After two days of eating ca 500 calories less my resting heart rate had dropped from 65-70 to 56, and I started to feel lightheaded when rising etc. so now I eat more, but don't loose much weight. When I have eaten less for longer periods before, it has been down to 45-50 at it's worst and I am very far from an atlete, so it is not a good thing for me, I am a bit scared it would happen again, feeling dizzy when laying down at times (I checked heart with ekg, thyroid etc, nothing wrong like that, but I might have PCOS, which might make it more difficult to loose weight).

    OK, so I'm looking to lose fat around my stomach, thighs and calves. I've been to the gym for two weeks, although only a few days for each of the weeks because of uni work. I mostly get to and from uni on foot, most times so far with me sweating quite a bit. In terms of what I can do in the gym, I can only do 10 minutes on the bike, treadmill, rowing machine and the elliptical, and can only lift 14 kg on the weights; I feel a bit depressed because there are girls skinnier than me who can lift more.

    In terms of my eating habits, I probably eat way too many carbs especially during dinner because of my staple food (rice), I often crave meat, hot chocolate and spicy flavoured noodles, and I think this is what's making me gain weight rapidly (up to 68 kg, don't really know about height). I could eat smaller portions, but I find that hard to do, and I'm not that interested in eating fruits and vegetables. I also eat really fast because of my rushing habits in the past when I desperately wanted to get more free time after eating.

    Overall, I feel like I've made no progress.

    Does seriously anyone know anything about yoga?


    Is it really that healthy as everyone says? honestly, some of the practices seem really rudimentary and are not difficult at all and I'm surprised they're considered poses. It seems most poses go between easy and insanely difficult.

    i don't care at all about the spiritual practices I only care about the health benefits. I don't like how slow a lot of yoga is and I wanted something intensive and more fast paced o.O

    of overwhelming,
    I'm by no means any expert within yoga, but living in Australia I'm completely aware of (since I have attended many sessions of) free yoga classes that "Lululemon" holds every Sunday at each of their stores. The professional yoga teachers there will happily give you "better" advice than many.. Although, I'm starting to think that Lululemon maybe an Australian only franchise.. If so, I apologise.. Ha! There's definitely other similar franchises that could help you out. Places that sell yoga mats. Inquire within

    Is that story true or just a fake story created to inspire people?
