Hitting the gymnasium for faster results was once upon a time considered to be the frontal idea for the elite obese class. Being on the pedestal in the society was a lucrative advantage for the group, while the fitness ideas that stroke the middle batch were more of natural gains. The scene has undergone a sea change over the years. Now work outs in gymnasiums are offered at mediocre and affordable rates, raising the toll of fitness freaks, surprisingly from every stratum around. Howsoever, those working out at gyms are often not brimmed of the right correct and rightly wrong techniques. I list down a few common mistakes those starters commit, causing downtrodden results.

Myth: Gymnasiums are solely for losing or gaining weight.

The biggest misconception indeed!!! The fresher lot concentrates more on exercises that impress upon the weight, ignoring the strength training ones, that leaves sagging skin on the parts where the mass was dissolved.

Myth: Specific parts’ workouts help losing fat on those particular areas.

Muscle mass comprises of net weight entangled with mass from all over the body. The right combination of cardio, strength and breathing burns out greater calories, aided with faster results, rather than part exercises that lead to strain.

Myth: One difficult training can be compensated with a bit extra of the other.

This mistake is most commonly witnessed in girls. Some work outs, requiring heavy pressures, are the most difficult to be carried out. For example, oblique cycling, ab kin pro can be mastered with regular practice only. Both these trainings offer higher belly bulge reduction and coral abs building respectively. Girls often skip these to higher additional training of lower forms that needs lesser efforts and push to even slower consequences.

Myth: Warm up exercises need not be done.

Be aware!! You are snapping your bones hard. Each time these vital characteristics are skipped, we strike upon our health. Warm ups like stretching reduce possibilities of latent fractures due to strength training and boost up our stamina at the cardio. So next time you hit upon this deadly idea, think twice.

Myth: Flooring exercises are a waste of time.

Wrong!!! Along with cardio and strength, flooring exercises are an added advantage. The best shape of flooring training comes with pilates, an innovative technique that strengthens our muscle cores, trimming down the bulky figures.

Myth: Gymming does not constitute dance and aerobics.

One strength training with alternate cardio provides the best outcomes as per veteran gym hitters. Each time a short span of aerobics is performed, strength training puffs out more calories at ease.

Myth: Why these trainers???

These trainers are a vital necessity in the process. Exercising under a trainer’s supervision provides you with the correct path of work out, while minimizing the chances of accidents. In nutshell, you are nowhere in the gym without them.

Myth: Vigorous or slow, results are just results.

As the saying goes, slow for slow, fast for fast, so is the fact that vigorous training increases heartbeats, dignifying better, faster results. It is also equally important to steadily raise your level, for avoidance of sprain and strain.

Myth: Breathing has no role to play.

Oxygenating the muscles in the correct way burns more fats than expected. Wrong breathing, on the other hand, opposes the force, clashing upon your health.

Myth: Work out is a chore to be performed.

Those readers who think this way will have much lesser chances of enjoying results at the gym. Those who think training in the gymnasium is a course to be completed, are usually highly irregular at presenting themselves at work outs, far way from benefiting themselves. Better look for some other way to contract.

Myth: Faster results mean slim in 4 days!!!

When we chance upon a phrase ‘faster results’, many think it is a matter of a couple of days to lose 10 kgs. But the truth is that regular and consistent training in the right way is a must to burn out fats gradually. The results may differ from person to person, depending on present weight, span of work out, stamina, etc.

All the best!!!

Allow me to redress my objective about the headline above. The pre-election processes like canvassing for votes do not make sense. But yes, it is all about politics, and eliciting, pragmatic politics. Sifting its transcending effect, we come to terms with its deploring and downtrodden policies that have never been kept at bay. After subsuming the political environment, it has made deep inroads into the educational scenario. Yes friends, a parochial and genocidal system has struck a discordant note in our society and has left no stone unturned in evoking ambivalent and aggressive feelings all over.

With the advent of developmental means for better conditions and proper proportions of education, a renewed aura has ushered in. Institutions, both government and private, have been strongly gentrified. College elections and leaders selections today represent nothing less than the mini models of political parties and groups, provoked by the meteoric thought of augment. But alas, how can we assure ourselves that our mild views and modern notions would not create a boomerang??? And we find our answers banging back at us, the worst fears have materialized. Students ranging from tender intermediate ones to matured doctorate achievers are found to be plunging into the ocean of politics, endearing its wild smacks. At a bearing time when their only focus should have been that of deciding and demonstrating career options, they are derailed and distracted by the penchant pelf and perks of politics.

How about coming to terms with the aftermath?? A student, pleading anonymity eagerly vents out, when asked as to why the spectrum has changed ever since,” Charity begins at home; students exemplify the culture of their background.” So are the colleges to bear the grunt of the so called modernized backings?? “Why, what less would one expect to do when even the teachers and lecturers are driven away from the scene, the principal absconds and the director locks himself in his room?” She lowers her voice,” They are threatened to be dealt severely with, lest they expose the students’ guile intentions.’ So how do we view the bloodshed?? And what extensions of mortal Morales to be bracketed? A student grieves over the fact that their annual function, day 6, was intervened by local blackbodies, who rampaged the grounds to succor one of the contesting companions in college. “Exigency,” she adds,” was called upon and the situation was too vexing to be put to rest.” Another incident that shocked the city was the invitation given to local powers, by the girls of a women’s college, before the votes counting process. Is that all?? No, many such cases have been gulfed off from the limelight, either by political influence or conscious staff members.

It is far from being denied, mentored by students who answer in unison,” Clandestine connections between students, politicians, police and criminals have squirmed the routine, tantalizing the tinderbox state of the handicapped law system. Some blame the westernized shows and scenes that ignite violent passions and exude quelled emotions in an illicit manner. Parents from alluring walks of life, beset their wards with pelf and perks, privileges and protection, nescient of the fact that they are abused and misused, to be in the news. Their children spawn their leader interests and satisfy their instincts by the means provided. Jockeying for position and rocking all the way, they never hesitate to turn down all barriers and obstacles.

So how are we to bid adieu to the scurry?? Are we just to wash our hands off the trauma and bequeath the problem?? Or should we orchestrate penurious steps to bring about an awakening!! It is understandable that no general explanation would go any near to account for the nebulous drift. Neither our constitution entertains enough power to the force, nor is the duty properly executed by the bodies. Corruption is vividly deep rooted, dragging up India to position 10 in the most corrupted list. Criminals hold upon the Achilles’ Heels of the state and achieve their coveted ends, threatening and plundering people. Ministers cling on to their positions, delving deep and befriending criminals to the hilt. The enigmatic question that have been squirmed and shirked since long is about the students fitting right into the matrix of politics. In the wake of inclined bureaucracy, they can only be expected to bite the bullet and consciously brave the rain, after perceiving the deep waters they are in. A time as such is wished sincerely by some well wishers, when our youngsters grow up to take the reins of the nation, rising above all odds and oddities and leaving the world reeling under their impact.

         DRAIN BACK YOUR BRAINS……………..

 ‘They may range from charismatic businessmen to outstanding doctors, exuding from every walk of life’; Indians are yet to get over the alluring chances to go abroad. This menace, named by some as BRAIN DRAIN, can have more than one cause, unemployment, underestimation, or even an ulterior desire to get to the peak. Exemplification of a few patriots would be a vain trial. Excusing our explanations, they would go on trying, testing and toiling there all through, come back to India and rest for the best. It seems to be no fair a sight when the lot squeezes their brains with knowledge in India, rack their brains for implementation somewhere else and benefit some other country and no less is the fact that they come back for their motherland to take their responsibility. India has been left in a mediocre pedestal, resembling an old age home.

Worse is the fact that NRIs explain their actions as nostalgic patriotism, that have pulled them back .But common man may ask,” Where had the sense disappeared when they were wanted?? Where had they been when our motherland was crying out to augment??” It is definitely not for the sake of visiting this day that our freedom fighters had mauled their lives!! Inventions and discoveries find their ways into the world in days coupled, the fame of which is sought by the country where Indian denizens may have mustered strong. There exists an impassible gulf between the residents of foreign countries and Indians residing there, politically, socially and economically. But the desecrating conditions are accepted in view of the satisfaction of being one step ahead our countrymen. No reconsiderations despite the qualms of being turned out anytime, no repents for resolute repudiation and despotism.

All these facts do not seem to fit into the matrix of an ‘Ideal India’, independent and immaculate. A good percentage of responsible citizens can never wash their hands off the thought. The fate of India seems to be chuckling and giggling at their behest. The future of India is, as though paving its ways in between the senile curvatures of life. It is badly needed that our people wake up to the call of India, attend to its needs, endear its augment and permeate the word of unity and integrity all through the world.
