Whom Lounge, we care a lot about your health and fitness. We want our items to make a positive difference, not only in your training, but also in your quality of life. With this in mind, we have three great stories for you. One looks at the new research on the pros and cons of drinking alcohol. The second story is about the benefits of doing yoga, and the third tells you about the best warm-ups you can do before a chest workout.
Nothing divides opinion as sharply as this issue, especially among fitness enthusiasts. While some argue that drinking is okay, as long as you make up for it. Others refuse to believe that drunkenness can have any benefit.
In this story, writer Shrenik Avlani talks about new research finding that drinking in low to moderate amounts can be good for reducing a person’s stress levels. However, as Avlani discovers after speaking with doctors, there may also be much better ways to reduce your stress levels. A fascinating story. Click here to read.
Last week was International Yoga Day, and to commemorate it we decided to talk to professionals who lead active lives and how yoga has helped them in this regard. Over the past decade, the practice of yoga has really taken off in India, and it’s fascinating to hear enthusiasts list the many different and very personal reasons why they love the practice.
Shrenik Avlani addresses a cross-section of such enthusiasts, from corporate executives to academics to yoga instructors, from across the country. By reading it, he may even glean some useful tips for his own practice, from using yoga to correct imbalances to using it to help with strength training. Click here to read.
