(No Transcript)
  • Gym and Yoga are two entirely different methods
    to develop a healthy body. Choosing one among the
    two entirely depends on your current physical
    condition and your health goals. If you are
    leading a sedentary life either of the gym and
    yoga can help you improve your health. But so
    does a daily walk, jog or body stretch.
  • You do not have to join a gym or perform yoga
    poses for general health.But if you are serious
    about significantly improving your physical and
    mental health then Gym and Yoga can help you
    achieve them.So what now? Gym or Yoga?That
    depends on your health goals. Here are a few
    health goals you can aim forWant to lose your
    extra weight and improve muscle mass?
  • Looking to improve mobility and reduce joint
  • Or just want to stay healthy and prevent
    potential health problems like heart and lung
  • Gym or Yoga, your choice just depends on your
    health goals. So we have decided to list-in the
    common health goals and the perfect choice that
    can help you achieve your goals.

To lose extra weight and stay lean
  • You can only lose the extra weight by maintaining
    a calorie deficit i.e. burning more calories than
    you eat. So the best routine to burn the extra
    weight is something that burns your calories
  • Strength training in the gym due to its
    physically taxing workout methods in a gym is
    proven to burn more calories than any other
  • So if you want to lose your scads of fat, the gym
    is your best choice but fortunately not the only
    one. Here is a list of routines ranked in the
    order of their ability to burn fat
  • Strength training
  • HIIT (High Intensive Interval Training)
  • Sprinting
  • Jogging or walking.

To lose extra weight and stay lean
  • Strength training is the best way to lose extra
    weight followed by HIIT (a training protocol) and
  • However if your medical condition doesnt allow
    you to train, you can try a daily walk which
    though doesnt burn as many calories as the ones
    above, it does help you lose weight slowly.
  • So your best choice to lose weight?
  • Strength training in the gym, followed by HIIT,
    Sprinting, walking.

To gain muscle and strengthen your joints 
  • Just as the name suggests gaining muscle mass is
    purely a department of the strength training in
    gym. Strength training is your go-to way to
    improve muscle gain. Resistance training (lifting
    weights) not only builds muscles but also
    strengthens your joints by improving the health
    of ligaments and tendons. As joints are also duly
    supported by muscles, strengthening your muscles
    go a long way in helping your joints.

To improve mobility and prevent joint pain 
  • For patients who consult an orthopaedic
    surgeon or a joint replacement surgeon may or may
    not be in the right shape to take on strength
    training. It is to be noted that Yoga comes to
    the rescue in such situations. Regular yoga
    practice improves flexibility, blood circulation,
    increases mobility, helps in muscle toning,
    improves joint health and also protects from the
    risk of injury.

To improve blood circulation and lung capacity
  • Blood circulation problems and decreased lung
    capacity are the major causes of heart and lung
    problems in people today. If your health goal is
    to prevent such problems then you should
    concentrate on aerobic training which entails
    activities like sprinting, jogging, brisk walking
    or normal walking. Not only these activities
    reduce the risk of heart and lung problems but
    also helps in reducing your weight and improving
    your general health by a significant margin.

  • A perfect formulation gym plan (Strength training
    and aerobic training) is better than yoga in
    almost all parameters if you are healthy and able
    bodied without any physical limitations and
    medical conditions. But if you are limited by any
    conditions yoga is your best bet to reduce your
    stress and improve your health without physically
    taxing your body.
  • However, if you are suffering joint pains it
    could be difficult to adhere to either of the gym
    or yoga without prior consultation from a joint
    specialist. So if you are living in Mumbai and
    are looking for an expert joint replacement
    specialist in Mumbai or hip replacement surgeon
    in Mumbai, Dr. Niraj Vora is the best orthopaedic
    surgeon in Mumbai specializing in joint and hip
    replacement in India.
