Guess who got ripped!

The Comedian Kevin James have to lose 80 pounds, develop enough stamina to go several rounds in the ring, and build MMA-worthy muscle for his new coming movie Here Comes the Boom.

To be in a fighter shape you got to train like a fighter which means you need to fight your inner mind and reach that level.

The actor had to run all places, build stamina, coordination, flexibility, and core strength using medicine ball moves mixed in with pushups and situps, boxing an hour, and went on steady diet.

Can’t wait to watch the movie… you can read more on Men’s Health News

Why YOGA?

I know people in Kuwait thinks Yoga is boring! so why I keep talking about Yoga?

I used to think the same about Yoga! why posing in a 30 seconds in an akward pose that hurts? or why just closing your eyes and do nothing!

While becoming a fitness junkie, I used to left weights real heavy weights and do cardio crazy cardio. I saw how my body changed and gaining strength, endurance and speed but I feel something is missing in my fitness routines! and with time I felt my body needed something different other than strength, endurance and speed. My body couldn’t acheive more and stops on the same level of fitness!

So I start searching and reading about keys to increase my fitness level. I just read about how getting older may effect the fitness level and the best way to keep it strong is being flexible. I knew I was flexible since I was being a Karate student for long time but my flexibility descreased a lot. So I started to do add stretchings to my workouts and start feeling my body but still missing it! Not until one day I met that one person who looks so ripped yet flexible like water. I met him when I was on vacation and I was at the gym’s hotel. I just approached him and asked him whats your secret? He simply says: Yoga! it keeps him more stronger, he can do more reps and he actually feels his body. So I decide to try it and guess what! It was the BESTworkout experience I ever had! It wasn’t an workout actually its more an art than something related to exercise.

Since then I start practice it and included in my weekly routine. It helps me feel my body and understand more about my inner person. The good thing about Yoga is you don’t have to be perfect with it. All you need is to breath and feel your mind matching your body.

Now why Yoga exercise is good for you? scientists have laid these results against the benefits of regular exercise.
