Body types: how genetics affect your figure
There are three types of physique or somatotype that affect our appearance. Details on why some of us are prone to gaining fat, while others are lean, read in the article.
There is no denying the fact that in addition to our lifestyle, eating habits and sports, there are other factors that influence how our body looks. It is often called the word “genetics”, meaning that some features of the figure are inherited in us and we cannot change them. So, there are people who, despite the fact that they eat a lot, remain thin, and often even have unhealthy thinness. Many will say that this is a small problem. But such people cannot gain weight even at the cost of tremendous effort. There is another class of people who, even eating moderately, always remain quite full and have excess weight, which is difficult for them to get rid of.
There is also a third group, the rarest, – those who always look quite athletic and fit. Even short moderate physical activities very quickly affect their appearance. They quickly develop muscle proliferation and it seems that they are not at all prone to weight gain. Continue reading
Periodization of loads: how often to change the training program
Periodization of training is a necessary condition for achieving the desired result. About whom and under what conditions it is necessary to change the training plan, read the article.
This article will discuss a very important aspect of training, namely the question: how often do I need to change and adjust the lesson plan. A huge number of people starting to work out in the gym or fitness in general, note that at the beginning of training, namely the first 1.5-2 months, the body reacts quite actively to the load, and then this effect disappears and often there is a feeling that not only nothing happens with the state of the body, but even such indicators as endurance and strength also remain at the same level.
And one of the main mistakes of both beginners and many experienced trainees is the lack of a change in the training program. For years, people can do the same thing in the same order, and then say that training “does not work” and does not bring any effect.
At the heart of all this is such a concept as periodization of loads. And first of all, it is necessary to understand the theoretical component of this term.

Surya Namaskar: Common Problems
This article is devoted to the most common problems that occur during the performance of Surya Namaskar, and methods for solving them. With a little time and attention and in your next lesson you will move easily and smoothly.
When you get all the elements of Surya Namaskar, you feel very good. Graceful, rhythmic postures awaken the whole body, allow you to concentrate and revitalize your breath. However, the very same dynamic movements, thanks to which Surya Namaskar fills us with joy, make this exercise difficult to correct, because it needs to be divided into parts and “tuned up” individually. There is sure to be one that you don’t like, for example, you constantly strike your finger when you lunge forward, or your lower back hurts when doing the bar, your breathing goes astray during specific asanas, or you cannot breathe as deep as the rest of the group .
These little things are not just annoying – they prevent us from getting the most out of Surya Namaskar. Therefore, you need to pay attention to them and either work out postures, or change them in a way that will be comfortable for your body. Time will not be wasted – the breath will become deeper, the body will be stronger, and you will get much more extensive experience from this important series of asanas. Continue reading
